Vibe Select Classics - UPTOWN!!

Click for event info HERE


The latest fruit of the tree that is Vibe Select is Vibe Select Classics.  This Friday we're taking the Vibe uptown for a swanky get-down on Diagonal.  R.D. will be in the house and I will be joined on turntables by veteran Barcelona DJs Guille de Juan & DJ Switch.  Super-excited to be in Blue Boite Barcelona, a gorgeous place away from the craziness that is central Barcelona in the summer...

R.D. & I had wanted to do an urban event that represents the classier, finer elements of that scene and this venue is definitely in line with that vision.

Get your tickets HERE and we'll see you on the dancefloor!

Traveling (again...)


Currently writing from Munich, Germany.  It's my first time out here and I'm playing for a private event on Sunday. 

Arrived Friday and had a blast going out!  Hung with Dusty from Jazz & Milk who took me to a family-oriented Italian restaurant ro start off.  We were seated next to a few people who seemed to be having a great time.  When they left, one of the men made a point of rapping his knuckles on our table and saying goodnight to us.  Although a bit odd, it was definitely coming from a place of friendliness.  I thought maybe he knew Dusty, but as it turns out he was just being social...  Afterward we went to Corleone.cc to hear D2E3 who was PHENOMENAL!!!  The venue is a lot of fun and his music just completed the vibe.

After that we got a kebap (traditional german food--via turkey) and went to hear the man from Kalakuta Soul rip it up at DIE REGISTRATUR.  After a great set of funky-disco-afro-latin-soul
we called it a night and went to the booth to give the DJ his proper respect.  ...At which point we were gifted the record you see at the top of this post!

I've been informed by the other Chico Alto that I must try Schweinsbraten with
Semmelknoede in a traditional restaurant with a beer garden.  I guess I know what happens tonight..

Switching subjects, it's been a really busy summer!  We like that and one of the things keeping me busy is more radio shows with Barcelona City Fm!  Deep Tuesdays broadcast live from Bar 68 7-9pm, my usual Something Else! Radio Wednesdays 10pm-12mid and Vibe Select Barcelona Saturdays from 8-10pm with R.D.  Tueday is a house session, Wednesday is eclectic and Saturday is Soul/R&B/Hiphop.



Other upcoming live gigs include:

Sat 20 August @ Bar 68 10pm-3am, Barcelona
Sun 21 August @ Xiringuito Zero 4-9pm, Vilanova
Fri 26 @
Bar 68 10pm-3am, Barcelona

Two Regular Gigs!



So I mentioned I have a new radio gig last time.  Just as before, it's with Barcelona City Fm.  The time slot is Wednesday night 10pm-12mid (CET/UT+1) and I think the vibe is appropriate to that--gets you over the hump day, but sufficiently night time...  Above the blog posts is the new player that will be updated every week with the new show and is playlist-based, so it will automatically play the older shows later.  These will be uploaded in three parts: the first hour, 1st part of second hour and a short DJ mix to close out hour 2.

Here is the playlist of shows, starting with the most recent:



Second regular gig is called HEAT and I'm working with Lady Shizzle at Surya Pau Claris in Barcelona.  We're doing monthly Saturdays and mixing it up with house, soul/r&b, latin/global vibes and of course hiphop...  Last time was really fun, so don't miss the one coming up next month!
