This Wednesday, 1/25 DJ Keyboard Cat has invited me to join him in playing an all-night set of 1970s psychedelic music from all over the world. DJ Keyboard Cat is one of the world’s premiere music ethnographers and I am thrilled to be sharing the decks with him for one of his rare NYC performances! You can expect some Nigerian discofunk, Peruvian chicha, Spansish acid rumba, Mali gangsta rap, and who knows what else. Keyboard Cat and I spent this last weekend listening to a ton of trippy music from all over the world, and we’ve put together a set that we hope will be like nothing you’ve ever heard. Come have a drink and take a listen.

It’s been some time since I produced a radio show. Some of y’all may remember Yr Weekend Starts Now, my weekly radio show at Newtown Radio. Getting in the studio and playing music and discussing music for a couple hours, it’s the best! I miss it.
And so: Professor Wexler and I built a new studio – still working out the kinks – and recorded a show to run through my list of Top Ten Albums of 2011. We’re a little rusty on the mics, we don’t even play any music until the eighth minute and it takes us almost two hours to get through the top ten albums but hey, there’s no rules with internet radio!
