2016 has been a heavy year and we haven’t even gotten through half of it yet. Friday, April 29th is the final Friday of the fourth month of the year. Like every final friday of the month some of my favorite records collectors come together for #nueverecordpotluck! This year seems like it’s going so fast and it keeps getting heavier and heavier. We recently lost an icon, a revolutionary in sound, the purple one, I’m certain we’ll be spending a good while healing, remembering, dancing, celebrating and mourning. Music is medicine.
So thankful for it. This month we’ll be celebrating what heals us in revolutions of nine with Bei Ru and friends. Join the audible potluck, bring nine of your favorite records, sign up and share them! See you on the dancefloor.

Get tickets directly on my profile or via artdontsleep.com photo via @bluenoterecords» “60 years ago today, at approximately 10am EST, freelance photographer Art Kane took a picture of 57 Jazz legends collected on the stoop & directly in front of 17 E. 126th St. for Esquire’s January 1959 issue. This image has since been considered one of the greatest & most iconic photographs ever. There have been several versions/different iterations of this image staged/organized & taken over the past 60 years but none of them are f**king with the original. All but 2 of the Jazz musicians and vocalists who participated in this photo shoot have since passed on. Kane even made the smart decision to include the neighborhood children who were on the block at the time making it truly a great day in Harlem. 60 years just flew by...” via @dart_adams #artkane #jazz #harlem» Hip hop turns 45 today. Thanks @kooldjherc! #hiphop45 #koolherc #hiphopblvd #southbronx via @justicevvs 🙌🏽G! 👑 » @artdontsleep Artist Highlight: “Ras G aka @afrikanspaceprogram guides a deep space exploration of music’s ancient history and rich future. Working thru obsolete tools to reach back in time and pluck out the essence of groove, Ras G's music is rich with space-funktified rhythms, fog horns, natty chattin', subterranean bass lines, colossal percussion and glorious highs. Ras G has been a fixture on the underground hip-hop scene in Los Angeles since the early '90s. He is a proud South Central LA resident. Ras along with Black Monk and Ron Stivers are the founders of the Poo-Bah Label. This is the music that people will be playing in the ghettos of Mars in the year 3014.” -@dublab/ @poobahrecords —————— Ras G joins @swarvy @bandelabandela and the great @allencodrum in #LA.
