August 17th Soul Spectrum Radio Show with special guest: DJ Sureshot

Shane Hunt aka DJ Sureshot graced The Soul Spectrum with his presence on today's show, playing some cuts from his new Good Look EP. Sureshot talks a bit about what it takes putting out your own record DIY-style, but that's not to say this release looks or sounds like your stereotypical DIY project. Freddy Anzures of Props pitches in on the visual design and DJ Sureshot's production rivals anything else out there today on the hip-hop beat-making side as well as the nu-funk production that seems to be thriving these days.

One thing that he said that I thought was interesting was Sureshot's approach to beat-making, blurring the lines between Hip-Hop, Psych and Funk, "To me it doesn't matter what genre it is, I'm still gonna approach every song in the same way."

KZSU Lunch Special Guest DJ Spots

It was actually the opportunity to guest DJ on this show that kicked my ass into getting my own radio show. Here are the first two Lunch Special shows I've done so far this summer. And I'll be joining the show's host, Byrd of Paradise, again on October 10th.

June 6th Show

Takin' it to the Air Waves: Soul Spectrum is now on KZSU Radio

Apologies for my absence. I knew that as soon as I had a baby something would lose out on the zero-sum game that is my life and it turns out the unlucky extracurricular that got the axe was the blog. But, as life changes and evolves, new opportunities emerge . . .

My day job at Stanford University has facilitated my entry into the world of college/independent radio at KZSU 90.1 FM Stanford. Starting earlier this summer I scored a regular radio spot for my show "Soul Spectrum". Currently, the show is on Wednesdays from Noon-1pm PST and if it ever changes time slots, I'll be sure to update you here.

Starting right about now I'm going to post my radio shows to the blog so that you can check them out and hear what's been floating my musical ark as of lately. If you're in the Bay Area, you might be able to get our signal at 90.1 FM or you can always stream the show live using this link.

With that, here's the last show I did with special guest DJ Ricky Pang from July 20th.
