EPISODE 84: DANNY SETH

This week we sat down with London bred rapper Danny Seth. He’s been back and forth between LA and London working hard, collabing with the likes of G-Eazy and A$AP Ferg. His live show is filled with electric energy and the turn up is very real, but he’s working diligently on an album that will show he’s a very well rounded artist (proven in the heartfelt song he performed in studio). Hear us talk about a miserable mushroom trip, being detained for 9 hours in an airport, and having the foresight to remove his first viral song from the internet.

EPISODE 83: KAMASI WASHINGTON

This week we sat down with saxophonist, composer, and jazz aficionado Kamasi Washington. His latest record The Epic (released on Brainfeeder) is a 3 hour dreamscape journey through the mind of a master craftsman. The Los Angeles jazz scene seemingly revolves around a large group of friends who’ve been playing music together since childhood (when I asked Kamasi how long he’d known Thundercat his response was “Since he was in his mom’s belly”). Their names–Kamasi, Terrace, Thundercat, Ronald, Miles, Ambrose, etc–have recently been coming to the forefront because so many of them worked on Kendrick‘s To Pimp A Butterfly record but, make no mistake, they’ve all been honing their craft in a vibrant LA scene for years. Hear us talk about how he almost ended up as a physicist instead of a musician, how playing hip hop live changed his thoughts on how to play jazz, and how the saxophone chose him and not the other way around.

EPISODE 82: DAYE JACK

This week we talked to fresh faced new LA transplant Daye Jack. Born in Nigeria, raised in Atlanta, schooled in New York, and now living in LA, his music is as eclectic as the places he’s resided. He represents a new breed of hip hop artists that are as comfortable harmonizing a catchy melody as they are barring out. We take a lot of care in selecting artists we think you, the listeners, will want to add to your playlist. If we’ve learned anything about your tastes through the years, this is going to be a guy we all agree upon. Listen in as we talk about leaving NYU to pursue music, playing his first show 6 months ago, and his surprising love for John Mayer.

EPISODE 81: MARVEL ALEXANDER

Not quite sure how I came across Marvel Alexander‘s last project “Don’t Die Yet,” but I enjoyed it. It’s got avant-garde sounds from the likes of Sango, Kaytranada, and features from Wiki and Hodgy. There’s a lot of great self-production as well, and it turns out he’s also behind the scenes making hit records as a producer. I had no idea. Really fun conversation with a perfect stranger, the dude can spin a yarn. Hear us talk about basketball scholarships, his friend Dennis’ advice on getting girls, and waking up in the hospital with shaved pubes.

YOUR OLD DROOG – MULE JUICE

Your Old Droog performs “Mule Juice,” off of the new Kinison EP, live in Cosmic Zoo studio for Kinda Neat.

YOD dropped to a ton of noise last year due to the fantastic “Your Old Droog EP” and a little bit of mystery. He’s recently followed it up with the “Kinison EP.” Thanks to a diligent follower of KN, I was informed he was in LA for the day while on tour with PRhyme. Due to horrendous traffic and time constraints, we couldn’t pull off a conversation for the podcast (forgot to even snap a picture of him we were in such a hurry), but we’ll get one in next time he’s in town. For the time being enjoy this effortless rendition of “Mule Juice.”

POS – LOCK-PICKS, KNIVES, BRICKS AND BATS

POS performs “Lock-picks, Knives, Bricks and Bats” live in Cosmic Zoo studios after a long conversation with Intuition on the Kinda Neat podcast.

EPISODE 80: POS

Always love when we get to link with an artist that followers of the show request frequently. POS is one of those artists. As a seasoned road veteran we, of course, caught him as he traveled through LA with Doomtree in support of All HandsTune in to hear us talk about beginning to tour at the tender age of 14, why Minneapolis has such a strong history of music, and how the video for Guns N’ Roses “Paradise City” changed his life.
