Music Is My Sanctuary – Show #19

New goodness from all angles for show #19. A little hip-hop at the beginning since there’s been so many good releases recently (Q-Tip, Common, Jean Grae, Illa J, Madlib, Count Bass D, shiiit… .even EPMD released a new record!)

I also wanted to rant on a bit about the whole “hipster” / “scenester” culture. Let me start off by saying that the last thing I ever want to be musically is a purist, to me that’s the worst. I don’t understand why musical scenes and styles are so apart. If you’re a good DJ, why would you only play 1 thing when theres so much out there… If you’re simply a music fan, why would you not open up to more than one style…

To me the true test of an artist, track, record is longevity: is this gonna be relevant in 10-20-30 years? At the same time i’m also not down with people who shit on that whole culture and think that a DJ who plays with Serato or downloads off blogs is a poser. Playing vinyl and digging records doesn’t make you any better than anyone else. (Playing Vinyl only doesn’t make a shitty Dj any better, and playing Digital doesn’t make a good DJ shit either)…

Wooow, ok sorry for the rant…. enjoy the show. Good music is good music. Nuff said!
