CDRadio episode 4.5! Recorded 2011.02.10. A few people subscribed on iTunes got episode 4 sometime last month, then I took it down a few hours later. It was a really good selection, but even though I’m only a few episodes in, I’d like to think the podcast is starting to take on a certain “sound” and that episode didn’t exactly match. Anywaaaaay!… this is episode 4.5. I should probably edit the whole “biweekly” podcast thing on iTunes since I axed that idea.

Btw: I had a lot of fun with this clip.

While yesterday was the birthday of the late J Dilla, it was also the birthday of another world renowned beat conductor that left this world well before his time; Nujabes. Like Dilla, he too was born 1975.02.07. They both would have been 37-years-old.

Happy [Belated] Birthday Nujabes.

Episode two of the new podcast series CDRadio, recorded 2010.12.15. Another blend of hip-hop and electronica sounds. A little more upbeat compared to the first episode (pssssh… hardly lol). Enjoy!

Becoming a fan of the late great Japanese hip-hop producer Nujabes (1974-2010) back in middle school, it was only a matter of time (OK, the same day) until I found out about the secret being kept in my backyard known as Substantial. Along the lines of DC’s Panacea, Substantial is another amazing wordsmith from the DMV who manages to keep it very low-key and still maintain a solid fanbase here and overseas.

Nujabes feat. Substantial – Home Sweet Home

Despite his very frequent appearances at open-mic nights and headlining shows throughout the district, I’ve missed him countless times in both DC and MD! So I was extremely excited last March to find out he had released a mixtape the month prior.
