Ale w/guest KATIEE – Elevation Through Sound
Alejandro Cohen is a musician and composer from Los Angeles, California. He has written and performed music as part of numerous projects and groups, including Languis, Pharaohs and Psychic Powers. He is also a composer of music for TV shows, documentaries and educational materials. Ale works at dublab as part of the full time office team along with frosty and Lavenders.
If Sean Young and Harrison Ford finally had their slow dance in Bladerunner’s sleaziest dive bar, KATIEE would be the house band amplifying their fleshy-machine heat. Based in NYC, KATIEE makes torch songs in the tune of thunderdome pop, minimalist mystic Terry Riley meets quiet storm Teddy Riley. Her debut LP “Out All Night” (Selfish Agenda) features dance floor beats, horns & strings with a lineup featuring members of free jazz slayers Sunwatchers. Here she presents a new set of tunes stripped down to the bones, just vox, keys, and Dr Groove. Katie Eastburn was the singer of Young People (5RC, Dimmak, Too Pure), LA legends who helped reimagine the possibilities of punk throughout the aughts.
12:00pm – 2:00pm

Greg Belson – Time Less
An infrequent broadcast hosted by DJ Greg Belson, focusing on the beatscapes of 90’s club culture. Tracks that were forward thinking in production techniques, ground breaking in textures and time signatures but yet often forgotten. With the 2000’s came the advent of more powerful computers, easier accessibility to software and an ease to create at home; beatmakers of the 90’s had to either adapt or fall by the wayside. We’ll be unearthing some of the cream of the crop, that still relied on outboard gear, physical mixing desks and insane wired up patch bays to get the job done. With it came a certain warmth, particularly when it was arguably the last bastion of dance music to promote, press and present their music solely onto vinyl….it’s within these grooves that we’d like to celebrate with you a time in beat making. Join us as we spin the original format of what truly was a ‘Time-Less’ age.
4:00pm – 6:00pm
Boss Harmony – Punky Reggae Party
Punky Reggae Party broadcasts every 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month and features musical selections from the punk & post-punk period between 1977 – 1982 (although other era’s, sub-genres & pre-punk influences are often represented), as well as Jamaican music from the ska, rock steady & roots reggae era’s, respectively. Many of the British post-punk bands were influenced by reggae music & it’s recording techniques, and that experimental spark is the nucleus of the show.
Punky Reggae Party started when David Orlando (Boss Harmony) and Jason Mason of Dub Club, teamed up with Michael Stock And Ben White of Part Time Punks in 2006. Existing & developing at various venues in Downtown, Los Angeles, it ultimately found a home at La Cita Bar (now promoted & DJ’d solely by David & Michael). Many bands (both punk and reggae) have performed throughout the years, and a few have cited it (PRP) as their favorite place to play. The DJ’s are avid vinyl lovers, so new records are got & played every week. There ARE some staples, however, which include recordings by bands like, PIL, The Wailers, The Clash, Culture, The Specials, Black Uhuru, The Slits, The Skatalites, The Ramones, The Pop Group, and many, many others.
