  • 12:00pm – 2:00pm Chris Ziegler w/guest WHY? – One Reporter's Opinion


    One Reporter’s Opinion—named after Chris Ziegler’s L.A. RECORD review column—is part lesson in lost history and part celebration of the new and the now in the city of Los Angeles, California, where everything happened at least once and anything could happen tomorrow. From demos to dead stock to new releases and the never-released—all genres and generations of musicians from the greater L.A. area are welcome.

    Chris Ziegler is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of L.A. RECORD, Los Angeles’ only dedicated music magazine. L.A. RECORD was founded in 2005 on Ziegler’s bedroom floor and has grown into a colossal bimonthly print magazine dedicated to documenting music—in any form—across the greater Los Angeles area. Each issue is a smash-cut collection of famously in-depth interviews with music-makers of all kinds—from Kendrick Lamar to Cherry Glazerr, or Flying Lotus to Foxygen to Les McCann—put together by a team of local writers, illustrators and photographers, with guest contributors like Ty Segall, Kutmah, Tim Presley of White Fence and Nick Waterhouse. Ziegler is also a contributor to MOJO magazine and the local OC and LA Weeklys, as well as a resident DJ at the Ace Hotel’s The Times of L.A. every Friday with dublab’s Frosty and more.

    This week Chris is joined by WHY?:

    While WHY? fans will certainly encounter familiar sounds on Moh Lhean – Wolf’s sour-sweet croon, deadpan poet’s drawl, and ear for stunningly fluid arrangements with obsessive attention to detail – the album also reveals that a transformation has taken place. The singer’s self-depricating swagger and cynical squint is replaced by a sense of peace in the unknowing; his wry smirk traded in for a holy shrug. This cosmic sense of calm and acceptance woven throughout the album is due in part to Wolf’s circumstances during the writing process: he suffered a severe health scare far from home, but rather than let it drive him to depression, he gained a stronger connection to the living. Album track “Proactive Evolution,” which features mewithoutYou’s Aaron Weiss, even samples Wolf’s doctors — the very voices that helped shape his new outlook.

    Movement is a key theme of Moh Lhean — it’s a breakup album without a romantic interest. “Easy” plays like a ward against the old ghost who haunts “January February March,” while “George Washington” finds Wolf on a tiny watercraft, paddling away as that malevolent force stays ashore. “The Water” morphs a moody folk tune into some strange new form of full-band dub, while “Consequence of Nonaction” wavers between a quiet meditation for guitar, clarinet, and voice, and wild, sax-strewn art-funk. Psychedelic album closer “The Barely Blur” — which features Son Lux — explores the nature of existence, focusing on the infinite instead of leaving listeners with the macabre chill of death.

    There’s something about the album that’s both ephemeral and distinctive, like something the Wolf Brothers might’ve heard on a praise album in their father’s synagogue as kids, or on some ’60s hippie LP they thrifted in their teens, or, perhaps, on the other side of the records they’ve been making their entire adult lives. While the meaning of the words “Moh Lhean” remain a mystery, they most likely have something to do with letting go, rebirth, coming home to a familiar feeling…or venturing out to discover a new one.

  • 10:00am – 12:00pm Ale w/guests Suzie True – 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.

    “Suzie True began in the summer of 2017 as the bedroom pop project of singer and bassist Lexi McCoy with the release of a single and music video for the song “Rat Kid” that got her kicked out of the mall she filmed it in. After a few line up changes, the solo project soon turned into a full band with jangly guitar, dreamy synth, and surf inspired drums. Suzie True is an LA based sad girl pop band who plays mushy songs about dating skaters and making mixtapes for crushes.”

  • 3:00pm – 4:00pm 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.

    MAGIC-2
    House Shoes, a resident DJ at the hip-hop staple venue St. Andrews Hall in Detroit, MI from 1994-2004 has had personal influence over a full generation of well respected emcees, producers, and then-future DJ’s. ‘Shoes was a 4x time winner of the hard earned title “Best Hip Hop DJ” in Detroit and used his platform to expose some of the best and brightest talent his city has had to offer to not only Detroit but the world as well.

    As a DJ, ‘Shoes has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Europe, and Australia with artists Guilty Simpson, Illa J, Exile, Aloe Blacc, Percee P, Phat Kat, Slum Village and Elzhi, to name a few, as well as on his own, gaining the respect of acts far outside the scope of Detroit hip-hop. House Shoes also performed as opening DJ on Mayer Hawthorne & The County’s Spring 2010 16-city headlining U.S. tour.

    As a producer, ‘Shoes has worked with the late and revered J Dilla and Big Proof, Black Milk, Danny Brown, Guilty Simpson, Roc Marciano, Chino XL, Invincible, Finale, MED, Nottz, Alchemist, Big Tone, Oh No, Elzhi, Black Spade, and many more. ‘Shoes has also helped to advise and mentor several more emcees, groups, DJ’s and producers during his time in both Detroit and California.

    As far as his musical output is concerned, he self-produced 10” limited vinyl issues have also been released on Do-Over Records, backed by Flying Lotus, and All-City Records out of Dublin, Ireland. Those 10” limited vinyl releases are already considered rare & highly sought after pieces. He’s produced tracks on Danny Brown’s “XXX” (Fool’s Gold) and Quelle Chris’ “Shotgun and Sleek Rifle” (Mello Music Group) albums. His debut album “Let It Go” was released in 2012 by Tres Records.

    He now spends the majority of his free time building new releases and strategy for Street Corner Music, his self-ran label, distributed through Fat Beats since 2013.
