Melting Pot

Our first show of August also had a historic first for Melting Pot, the first in studio performance and it comes from NYC’s Pacha Massive! Below you can catch audio of the whole show (slightly less quality than normal, this comes from the recently reinstituted KPFK Audio Archvies), I think I’ll have a separate post for this performance, that will just include the interview+performance from Pacha Massive (and hopefully many more artists as the years go passing by). Also in the show, new music from M.I.A., Best Coast, Myron & E with the Soul Investigators, Cooly G, Budos Band and more. Show opens with a most of my set from Saturday’s Make It Funky Fest 2010 (a post on that to follow) and closes with a tribute set to Melvin Bliss, whose “Synthetic Substitution” is one of the seminal breakbeats of all-time. Tune in and tell a friend, audio will be up for a month from today…
