DJ Lady C w/guest Moniquea – Rare Air
Rare Air is a product of its time and space, not adhering to any specific genre but rather whatever the wind blows into DJ Lady C’s consciousness. Roots reggae & dub records, classical cassettes, avant-garde electronic CDs, ambient and new age experimental media – Rare Air is a mixed bag made possible by the human experience of living in the 21st century in the City of Angels, surrounded by inspiration, noise, the constant hustle, and countless record stores full of treasure and good people.
This week, DJ Lady C will be joined by the one and only Moniquea!
Moniquea was born in Gary, Indiana and raised in Pasadena, California. She vividly recalls watching her mother rehearse as a lead singer alongside other relatives and friends in the Pasadena-branded group The Roses. As a youth, she was exposed to countless volumes of 70’s soul, as well as the electrified musical production of the 80’s, thus shaping her own sound immeasurably. In particular, the synthesized, dance-friendly aesthetics of new wave and funk-laden R&B (later to be categorized as “boogie”) made a lasting impression on her, which she seeks to distill and reinterpret in the music she creates today.
No stranger to the spotlight, Moniquea solidified her local presence by singing at Pasadena’s world-famous Rose Bowl at only 15 years old. Quickly moving past hometown boundaries, she went on to open for Westside Connection during the height of their success, and has since performed at nearly every reputable venue in LA – The Whisky, The Roxy, Viper Room, Cinespace, The Echo, and more. She has also twice performed at the annual Taste of Soul festival, and the Kingfest at Leimert Park, both drawing crowds in the thousands; and has been a highlighted performer at Modern Funk Fests in San Diego, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Moniquea and her music has also been featured in a number of music articles, magazines, websites and blogs, including: AllMusic, Do Androids Dance, Impose, Noisey Music by VICE, Okayplayer; and in Los Angeles’ biggest music publication, LA Record, where she landed on the front cover in 2015.
After independently releasing her self-titled debut in 2011, Moniquea partnered with producer XL Middleton and released the album Yes No Maybe in 2014, followed up by Blackwavefunk in 2017. It is through these records and her current and future musical endeavors that she delivers modern funk, as refracted through the lens of her early influences. What Moniquea creates is not ‘pastiche’ nor ‘retro,’ but a faithful reinterpretation of sounds that came from the dawn of the synth, perfectly balanced with one eye focused squarely on the future.

Becky Ebenkamp and Nikki Kreuzer – Bubblegum & Other Delights
Writers Becky Ebenkamp and Nikki Kreuzer (Imagine Betty and Veronica without that pesky Archie to fight over…) are the pop culture pundits who serve as your musical apologists on Bubblegum & Other Delights, dublab.com’s Sunday night radio show dedicated to the much-maligned, sugary-sweet musical genre that is the true innocent victim of fake news. With humor, smarts and great attention to detail, the hosts lead listeners on a cruise through a candy land of sugary-sweet songs crafted by the Brill Building’s best and performed by pseudonym-slinging session musicians—tunes crammed full of innocence-sounding, double-entendre lyrics that melt in your mouth, not in your hands.
And don’t fret, diabetics, because the “Other Delights” portions of the show is reserved for power pop, soul, punk, novelty, garage, sunshine pop, psych, glitter rock and other complementary genres. Those who don’t see a common thread between the 1910 Fruitgum Company and the Ramones will soon as we pull it and seduce you with our guilty musical pleasures…
Nikki was born and raised in Buffalo, N.Y. but has lived half her life in Los Angeles. A music history obsessor, writer, mosaic artist, photographer, song writer, bass player and actress, she seeks the extraordinary in everyday life at every chance she gets.
Becky grew up in the suburbs of L.A., but desperately longed to live in a “real” city. She went to college in San Francisco, and worked as a magazine journalist in New York, but after excavating every hidden, suburban strip mall tiki bar and depleting those cities’ thrift shops of their vintage clothing and precious vinyl she realized there’s no place like home. Thanks, Dorothy.
Fasten your seat belts—it’s gonna be a chewy ride!
8:00pm – 10:00pm
Villain Park – "Blackout Radio" guest session
VILLAIN PARK PRESENTS BLACK OUT RADIO
Join LA hip hop group Villain Park for a special Sunday evening guest session!
Check out their newest music video for their single “We Out Here”!
Villain Park, new and improved. Transformed but not altered. This is the recent reincarnation of The Hip Hop duo from West Los Angeles, California. The duo, Bunge & Smoke, were born and raised in their inner-city neighborhoods. The metropolis provided a resilient backdrop to which they started writing music together; cultivating their artistry over beats. Over the last couple of years, their collaborative efforts have solidified their status as a dynamic group, building a solid foundation through online and physical releases.
Their latest single – ‘We Out Here’ – fourth quarter of the audio and visual resurgence, enclosed in one freshly resealed package, follows hot on the heels of their winter 2015/16 release “Same Ol Shit EP”. In light of their efforts, Villain Park has received quite a few mentions from reputable music outlets ranging from Apple Music Beats 1 to style influencers like XXL Magazine and LRG Brand.
Their infectious musical approach of fusing true hip-hop with breakbeats, 808 kicks, scratching, and bars to match is quickly establishing Villain Park as a musical force to be reckoned with.
