Tibetan Buddhist Tantra and The Foundations of the Chod Practice

Download | Duration: 00:43:01





Chandra Easton spoke with students of Christopher 'Hareesh' Wallis, as part of “The Heart of Recognition” course series, about the foundations of Buddhist Tantra and the role of Tantra in Buddhism today.  She brings clarity to the transition of Tantra from it’s origins into Tibetan culture, bridging the link between Shamanism and Buddhism. This fusion allowed for female figures, such as Machig Labdron, to create seminal works in the Tibetan Buddhist canon and develop important healing practices such as Chod. These teachings are accessible to everyone and particularly illuminate importance of Feminine Wisdom in Buddhism and Tantra.

It is beneficial to us all to understand the common elements of influence in our culture, especially when such philosophies are being widely entertained to increase personal well-being and strengthen the greater good. However the personal integration and practice of such ideals can be as complicated as the truths are simple and touching such subtlety is better navigated with a map (or at least an existential tourists guide).  I hope you enjoy these insights and that they inspire deeper exploration into sacred wisdom in all forms. I will be delving deeper in related topics moving forward.

Radio Perfilo - Mike Boo Mix From The Archives

Mike Boo dropped a nice lil set on the radio show in June of 2008. I've been diggin in my archives and found myself sinking into this mix remembering how much I loved it the first time I heard it.  And since it's from the infamous Mike Boo its got those rich beautiful tones of winter glowing with hidden warmth and compassion and a lil refreshing childish humor.

Mike Boo's most recent project closes tonight at 1AM Gallery in SF.  If you see this and want to check it out the info is here...

Baliktad is Mike Boo and Pu22le (puzzle) with Pu22le providing the visual elments and animation of Filipino spirit lore and Mike Boo manifesting sounds of the other world (known intimately to his culture) through samples, scratching, and other Mike-made sounds.
Check out the awesome video sample for Tabi Tabi Po ...

Radio Perfilo - For The Journey Ahead


Download | Duration: 01:28:12

This is the best kind of mix... a message of love and hope carrying sounds of subtle strength and devotion to a lifelong journey.  Yes yes... this is a mix by DJ Inexplicable to honor his sister's marriage.  What a great and loving gesture.  I enjoyed it so much, I asked to share it with my listeners here.  DJ Inexplicable is a kindred to me in music and mindfulness.  I've learned a lot from my friendship with him from the day I walked up to him playing a record I knew too well.  He's got a lot to say and a huge vocabulary of sounds to say it in. 
I like to think of this mix of a poem of some of my favorite words and gestures... the artists and versions that I play to myself for peace and pleasure.  I hope this inspires you to feel the beat of your own heart and envision a magical journey for yourself.

Radio Perfilo - Roy Two Thousand's Carnivorous Bunny


Download | Duration: 00:02:43



bunny album art2 big

Hey Kids...
I got another all original treat from the Roy Two Thousand... I've been holding this one back for awhile but its finally public and share-able
Gotta say its a favorite... the drums are awesome (straight from OZ)... K Flay kills it!! http://www.kflay.com
And... I like to listen to it over and over and over again and sing along. 
Elements of electro, surf, rock, dub & hip hop have formed like Voltron to make a sound that makes your chest pound while K Flay eases you into a catchy hook with facetious lyrics sprinkling humor into impending doom. 
This is the second collab between K Flay and Roy 2k and it better not be the last!

Plus ya gotta love that that the whole thing was inspired by a painting... although the bunny version you see above is for the video in production (which is extra awesome!!). I love me some sweet animation!

Check Roy's youtube channel for past videos and live sets with the likes of K Flay, Dj Collage, Dj Quest, Kat Ouano (of Crown City Rockers) and well... himself on lots of instruments. It's definitely worth the trip over.



Stay tuned...a message from Roy Two Thousand I thought I would share...

"this was a total surprise... vote for me!!

Radio Perfilo - DJ Quest "Schizo-Hernia" Mixtape


Download | Duration: 00:53:02




quest-lucky alley2.JPG

Welcome to the magical world of DJ Quest.  I have to say I'm really proud and excited to send this mix out because I never cease to be amazed at the diversity and range that Quest embodies as a dj and turntablist.
These mashups were locked in real time by hand pitching records over records... in a world of Ableton, Logic, and Protools, this is fast becoming the lost art of patience and care... the analog path of feeling the mix...
I'm adding a link here to a session I was engineering recently with Quest, LadyFingaz and Roy Two Thousand (Thanks to Matt Oner for the filming).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FIJwtVJ65s
We get few opportunities to really indulge in the improvisation that turntablism is all about.  Watching how Quest uses the technology he has (and he's all about Serato) and every aspect of his Rane (he's all over every fader and knob using every tool he has to effect and manipulate his samples) is nothing short of an enlightening experience.  Few artists illustrate the total unification of technology and musicianship so well. Quest may not like to think of himself as a teacher, but I learn something everytime I do a show or session with him...
So when you listen to this mix... prepare to for some serious school!

Radio Perfilo - Ghislain Poirier Live Mix on KZSU Part Deux


Download | Duration: 01:07:33





Its about time ghislainselfportrait.jpg I post the second half of the set that Ghislain Poirier did on the radio show back in April.  I was giving it another listen yesterday and rekindled the moment of jaw dropping awe at Poirier's production skills that I had when he was on the show.  The space he leaves in his beats is filled with electro energy of the best kind.  So while Ghislain is taking his sounds to the clubs of Brazil and then across the pond to Bristol, you can Bounce Le Gros around your living room until he comes back round to this continent.
Here are some links to downloads and vids he sent out en avant of Karnival V.1 to add to the mix as well... enjoy...

Radio Perfilo - Roy Two Thousand's Halcyon 2k


Download | Duration: 00:04:17














So the Roy Two Thousand did a remix of one of his favorite techno tracks of all time, Orbital's 'Halcyon + On + On'... and it happens that this track holds a special place in my heart thus I'm pretty stoked about this one as well...  the fact that he made most of the beat while on a boat sailing the Cali coast for a month is extra nice! I wanted to send it out and share it with all of y'all so you can take with you into the world... this song is meant to be part of a personal soundtrack for sure!

And if you don't know Roy and haven't checked out the live set then head out to Dub Mission at the Elbo Room in SF on May 17th.  He'll be settin up his soundsystem with some support from DJ Quest.  (By the way... the Roy Two Thousand Soundsystem is a guitar, a bass, a bong, two turntables, a melodica, racks of processors and a new cow bell!! ) This is a show not to be missed ... an extra special "treat" for everyone there. 

roy say's 'the future rocks!!' and so it does!
roll on over to his site and check out videos and more free songs... this guy gives and he gives and smiles a lot too!!
so enjoy and pick a up a smile while you're there... (and yesssss... I am totally feelin' the feel good vibe ... sunshine can do that to a girl

Radio Perfilo - Roy McNeill live at Cafe Du Nord


Download | Duration: 00:49:36



This is a live recording of the last show Roy McNeill did as Organik and is an example of a sound in transition.  He now is embracing a more processed beat driven experiment of "music from the future". I included his first single under Roy Two Thousand, "Can't Stop", at the beginning of the live recording so y'all can get a taste of what is to come... (there is an alternate version at the end of the live set if you'd like to compare and he has a nifty video of the original up on his youtube as well.) I've got to say that with all the elements he has to his live sets, the intrigue I felt as a dj/musician/engineer has increased the more I see the evolution of these sounds into something representing a moment in our culture where soundclashing is being taken to a whole nother level.  This is one of the many examples of hybridized music and musicianship I'm loving to watch and listen to... especially since it changes shape and direction almost daily.

This kid's got a lot of live shows coming up with some of my favorite bay area peoples so try to check this in person if you can...
last sunday DJ Quest, Roy Two Thousand, Radio Active, Dawgisht and DJ Oatylove all threw down on a formidable jam live on air and I'll be putting that up soon as well... stay posted...

thanks to Giada and Dixie for the excellent intro! Cool Italian girls make everything better!

Radio Perfilo - Subatomic Sound System

Download | Duration: 00:48:05




Dub Mission holds a special place in my life in music.  Not only is DJ Sep my hero as a selector, but she has been a key element in my development as a producer and dj as well.  She is the heart of Dub in San Francisco and Dub Mission provides the pulse to a movement and culture that is strong and ever evolving.  Every year we try to do a special around her anniversary when possible.  The first involved an interview with legendary producer Adrian Sherwood in 2002 and I was hooked from there... 
This year she introduced me to the sounds of the Subatomic Sound System and we were able to get them down to KZSU for a nice little pre-anniversary warm up. 
I'll let the set speak for itself because the voices are so strong and inviting and the sounds are rich with rhythms you can't resist.

Subatomic has many different members and is always stretching their arms out to embrace new sounds and collaborations... myspace link is below and they're out on tour right now so catch em if you can!

Eight Tibetans killed in Kardze: new phase in protests in Tibet
http://www.savetibet.org/news/newsitem.php?id=1279

Articles on violence and silenced voices of dissent going back years
http://www.savetibet.org/news/insidetibet.php

In June of 2006, I spoke with John Ackerly of the International
Campaign for Tibet.  At the time, the media was not as focused on the
violence in Lhasa as it is now. It seemed that nonviolent
diplomacy was a likely option as voices in the Chinese government were
starting to warm towards the plight of Tibetans and openly criticize
China's policies regarding continued occupation of the nation.  Even
though this interview is almost two years old, I wanted to share it in
view of recent developments and hopefully provide a little more
background, even if it is basic information.

Americans carry a rather simplified idea of Tibet as a peaceful nation being
occupied and as a culture being slowly dissolved into the Peoples
Republic of China.
We think that it's a shame, and we feel bad so we put bumper stickers
on our cars, throw concerts to build awareness, and then go back to
our day to day lives.
Most of us (including myself) do not know the details of
the U.S. diplomatic policy regarding China and Tibet, and most of us do
not know much about the people and customs of Tibet (beyond cliched
rural images with the Himalayas in the background and pictures of the
Dalai Lama smiling and looking peaceful).  This is what I choose to
think of myself. It is a wonderful view of an idealized culture
led by a leader who embodies all that I like to believe is right in
the world.   But I am as guilty of pushing the Tibetan reality under
the rug, along with the rest of the atrocities occurring world wide that
prick my conscience, as anyone else.

 I have no obligation to be objective here, so I can openly admit that
what I have read, in the sources linked above, and watched in short news
clips brings tears to my eyes.  I want to do something.  I want to
find who is responsible and tell them that they have to stop.  I want
to tell them that there are other ways to maintain a strong economy
and feed their citizens. But in truth, it does no good to blame only
the Chinese government and to shoot criticisms at a regime, in
transition, upholding policies and actions instigated decades
ago.  Feeling anger and the need to reach out and help ease the frustrations
of a people oppressed are natural reactions, but it we should instead
turn that energy into educating the world population on the
consequences of violence in aggressive as well as defensive tactics.  Great and
positive changes in social and political tyranny have been achieved by
nonviolent acts in our very recent history, and stopping violence in
response to violence, ceasing threats in response to threats, and promoting
demilitarizing political agendas is the most obvious step towards
ending a cycle of wars and the tyranny at play when peaceful nations
held in check by military
occupation.

When the population of one of the most nonviolent governments and
cultures in the world has finally erupted into riots where Monks are
being fired upon and crowds are being herded with tanks and tear gas,
should we not ask ourselves if there is a better option?  Should we
not consider this a moment of revelation?  More thought and more
energy need to be directed towards the contemplation of peaceful
politics.  Nonviolent diplomacy should be taking the place of bullying
government policies.  The US is particularly guilty of patrolling the world
with big sticks and sending invasion forces into unstable situations.
Under the guise of saving the weak and protecting nations from
themselves, and under the pretense of promoting political and
economic stability, we tend to do the opposite (see the Philippines,
Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq).  Is this not another form of
colonization via a trojan horse painted in the colors of democracy,
freedom, and human rights?  Are we, as individuals, not
responsible when we do not speak up in protest? Hasn't our culture's
passive response been interpreted as an endorsement of US diplomatic
policy? I think yes!

I would like to ask you all to make this a personal process.  Educate
yourselves and try to look beyond the 2 minute bites on CNN and the
BBC.  Spend ten minutes talking to someone about issues that cause
your sides to clench and tears to prick your eyes.  Challenge yourself
to envision a resolution and an end to violence.  Follow it by thoughts
of ways that this could possibly happen.  I ask you to see a world
where we are a world community embodying patience, intelligence and
compassion enough to manifest a world where violence (even in protest
to violence) is not the first option.  We are better than that.  We
are a people that can build amazing jewels of civilization and
contemplate our own existence to degrees that dizzy the imagination.
We can build models of the shape of the universe and theorize on the nature off
all its parts.  Can we not find a way to evolve again and begin a
cycle of giving rather than taking, of balance instead of power, of
peace instead of war? Please believe in the power of communication and
one of the first steps towards peace is asking for it.

On the ICT website, there are ways to get involved, links for letter
writing campaigns, and information on the San Francisco Beijing '08
Campaign occurring from April 7th, 2008 to April 9th, 2008 in San
Francisco in Berkeley.  This is an immediate chance to educate
yourself as ICT will be publicly examining China's Human Rights record
over the last year in preparation for the arrival of the Olympic Torch
in San Francisco on April 9th.  The goal of this campaign is to draw
attention to ideals that the Olympic Games are founded upon and
hopefully encourage the Chinese government to act according to those
goals in future talks regarding the future of Tibet.

This is a very personal message.
Thank you for reading!

Radio Perfilo - Nickodemus and Zeb live at Dub Mission SF

Download | Duration: 01:14:37






A lot of heads first became aware of Nickodemus when his collab with Quantic, Mi Swing Es Tropical, was used in an Ipod commercial last fall... and I'm not gonna hate on that because I'm all for good music spreading to every corner of the world so that more good music gets made in response... I have to say that I've been a huge fan of Turntables On The Hudson for about 7 years and to get to record this live set of Zeb and Nickodemus at Dub Mission and then share it with all of y'all is a very special thing for me.  Even though the sound is rough, you get a real sense of where Zeb's amazing production skill comes from when you hear him in the role of instrumentalist accompaniment to the dj'd selections Nickodemus brings.  The two are masters of sound collage and merging sonic textures and rhythms into moments in the mix I thought I could never dance to but have been proven oh so very wrong!!  Special guests Jef Stott (2nd Oud) & Drum Spider on Darbouka were also performing that night.
This is part one of the live set.  There is a second shorter set and the interview of me and Nickodemus on live on the radio the week before coming up in the future feed as well...

For local Bay Area readers... Turntables on the Hudson is going to be at the Mezzanine on April 18th so I better see you there!!! Dancing!!!!!

Radio Perfilo - Dj Collage live at Dub Mission SF

Download | Duration: 00:51:36





This set and these sounds are at the forefront of a new kind of soundclash ready to crash over soundsystems all over the world.  DJ Collage has definitely proven that he can bring together the sounds of contradicting cultures and still make beats and rhythms that echo the soul of roots vibration while taking us to a place we've never been before.  This producer/emcee, also known as MC Chatman, carries the intensity of the elements he uses in his production into his vocal style and the mixture yields a sonic image you can't help but stare at.  I like to think of this as roots music speaking to the breadth of the community loyally addicted to dubwise sounds, because this is a community that reaches every corner of the world from the UK to Japan and from Africa to Brazil.  Dj Collage's production and collaborations prove music is a form of communicated dna that shows you where you've been and where you're going.

Radio Perfilo - Ghislain Poirier and Bounce Le Remix 3

Download | Duration: 00:03:53



One of the things that I really appreciate about Ghislain Poirier is that he loves to share his music.  Granted... he has to put food on the table like everyone else but it's a nice reminder that artists love to give pieces and parts of themselves through their music and recorded expression.  Keepin that in mind, it's important for us uber consumer's, downloaders, and compulsive file sharers to realize that every once in awhile it's nice to stop into your local record store and pick up some wax or even a cd (but only when vinyl is not available).  I want my favorite artists to have as much free time as possible to make more music so I get super inbox happiness when I get something like this Cham/Sixtoo track in the mail.  I might post another gem later on in April but in the meantime try to get your hands on the full release... specially you dj's cause every track I've heard so far hits me so hard my chest bends a bit.  Few producers can manipulate time and space like this man...

This mix speaks for itself... you can see why Balagan's "Funny Accent" mix made my top of 2007 list.  He's one of the few dj's that truly gives me new sounds that I've never heard before from places that I wish I could be digging.
He's got new gadgets now so I'm hoping this will become a regular thing.  He's also makin his way to the westcoast sometime this spring so keep an eye on my dj schedule cause I'll be posting his SF dates there for sure...
Oh... and check is myspace and the Low Bee forum to catch up with him in on home turf at the Baltimore and DC parties.

Download | Duration: 01:06:05



Every time I have Dub U on the show he continues to surprise and delight with the way he styles his textures and selects his sounds... while I think of him as a dubstep dj, he never boxes himself in and keeps things interesting with dynamic rhythms and surprising choices. I was supposed to hop on the tables after him but he was willing to go for almost a two hour set so I put 'em to work... word is he sometimes goes six hours straight on his Sunday stream on Subfm.com. Part two is on the way along with a playlist to be added later... in the meantime feel free to hit up Dub U on myspace in case we lag on that list (given the number of calls I got during the live set, the rundown is long overdue).

Art Linkletterz
So its been long enough that I know I was fiendin for another Mochisession on my airwaves. This is the BirthdayPet show with Mike Boo on the turntable (the vestax midi turntable that he helped design by the way - first time in studio with it...) and Art Linkletterz on the mic. I kept part of our delightful post set mic break cause it was too ridiculous to cut off... although i didn't leave everything up there. But that way you can just listen to the end and find out about all the new albums coming out because I'm a little lazy with the writing and Mochipet is way too productive to keep up with... He's been sending me these tour mashes of his vocals from the new Microphone Pet album due out later this spring that are making happy hour zombies dance like it's last call... I already know this is going to be one of my top albums of '08 and I haven't even heard Feel My China or Microphones & Muffins yet.... if you missed the live stream then you missed me playing the whole album before these guys got busy on the live set.
Some of these mashes are available for download on his myspace page too... and Do Geese See God is my shit right now!!

Radio Perfilo - A Genie with a Scratch Guitar (session 2)

Download | Duration: 00:42:07


The Genie
This is the second time I've had The Genie in for a live session and it was way too long in between his visits. You really have to see what he does to fully appreciate the organic structure of each song and the elements he draws on with his performance... but pretty much the style is "scratch guitar" and his tools are his guitar, his mic for beat boxing and his pedals for looping and efx. I love it because it is a mode of turntablism taken over by a more traditionally concept of instrumentalism. The Genie uses beats and songs that we recognize to provide a reference point for the distance that he takes a slide guitar sound through efx and carefully constructed audio friction reminiscent of a dj scratching. Check videos on his myspace for a more in depth break down of the whole thing. He's working with some great producers right now so keep you ear to the ground on new albums soon to come... cause it's been too long...

Radio Perfilo - Rakim Allah - an interview

Download | Duration: 00:42:24



Back in early November, I got a chance to interview Rakim while he was on tour with Brotha Ali and Ghostface Killah.  They were all being backed by Rhythm Roots Allstars - an incredible live band on its own by the way so please check them out!! - and not only was getting to see Rakim live an incredible moment, but hearing a live band play some of my most loved breaks and beats was almost too much. Anyways... Rakim has a new label and sounds on the way and is still touring and doin what he can to keep hip hop a movement that we can still take pride in as listeners who choose to be inspired by our music.  This was done at 2:30 am and we were all a bit done in but I appreciated the thought and consideration given to answering every question.  I was surprised by some responses and I left with a better understanding of one of my favorite emcees of all time.  So if this means something to you then I think you can guess what it meant to me. I'd like to thank Davey D of Hardknock Radio for contributing his questions to this segment as well.   (This originally aired on November 3rd and may sound a little different cause I mixed it live in serato... somethin for you production geeks like me out there).


Radio Perfilo - Salva and Approach: Midwest Mutant Electro Hip Hop... More Please...

Download | Duration: 01:10:38






Paul Salva and Approach came in for a nice lil live emcee session to show off some of the tracks that they've been mixing up in the lab. These artists are part of the next step up a level with a swerve and sidestep as hip hop and other veins of electronic music merge and mutate. They keep it connected with with their roots in those classic Detroit sounds from funk to techno to everything Dillatastic mixed in with some Miami Bass and Chicago flavor while still bringing a new kind of musicianship to beat making and its wonderful machines.
I just gotta say that everything Paul Salva makes is an instant favorite and in this show you can hear me stop mid-sentence more than a few times as his sounds make my head stand still. Not only is he a skilled sound assembler but the man can rap and scratch and mix his ass off too... plus... he's now brought Approach out the the bay from Kansas to show the Bay Area emcees that they better step up the game cause these flows are tight. Approach also has projects comin out with Madlib fam Oh No and is constantly at work buildin that trueskool foundation up every which way he can.  (Just check the two disks he's slingin at folks now... your ears won't let you let go of those sounds). The only thing missin on this show is emcee Epcot who's been lendin more than a lil helpin hand to the Glitch Mob as they slay crowds in the Bay and beyond.

Radio Perfilo - Hanni El Khatib live with Nick Andre (Xylophones = Happee)

Download | Duration: 00:56:21






The Perennial Philosophy changed up the tempo a bit when we had Hanni El Khatib (also a member of Her Space Holiday) doing a live acoustic set in studio and playing us some tracks off of his solo EP. Nick Andre (of Slept on Records and City Light) jumped in on xylophone  for an impromtu version of Kelis' Millionaire that I had on repeat for days (and was making everyone I could listen... it's still up on The Perennial Philosophy myspace player as well).  And may I say anyone that brings a xylophone in for a live set is automatically my hero! There's not much you can do with it that doesn't make something sound better. Nick also finally played us some of the City Light tracks that will be dropping on the album early 2008. 
Taking the sounds that we all love in hip hop and bringing them together with all other sides of musical expression is what the show is all about and I'd be pressed to find two better folks to represent that.  By bringing versatility to multiple instruments and gathering living music into their production, you feel the energy and soul that much more... plus Hanni drops sum mean "oooohs"... and you know how the girls love those "oooohs".  So Check the links and enjoy the show. I threw the whole thing up unedited for that raw radio feel. Plus I wanted peeps to hear the live versioned remix of Pharoahe Monch's "Body Baby" at the end which I wasn't even allowed to keep a copy of.

Download | Duration: 01:32:31



I was thinkin it's high time for a lil more dubstep. I've been sittin on this set for a couple months 'cause Selector Dub U dropped some tracks from peoples he and I both like to support, and we wanted to be able to list all the wonderful talent going into this mix. Alas... the playlist is still coming but I thought I would go on and post this baby as the beginning of an onslaught of shows coming your way. I am up to my eyeballs in wonderful sets and enlightening interviews that I hope to work through over the next month so we can start the new year fresh!! fresh!! fresh!!
But enough about that... just to recap... Selector Dub U is a Bay Area pillar of dubstep and keeps me supplied with wonderful sets as often as schedules allow... Right now he also has a remix out on the Baron Zen album released a few months back on Stones Throw and will be sending projects out into the world in the near future so keep your eyes and ears open. I also got to hear Emcee Child, who jumps on the mic with Selector Dub U from time to time, and was a little impressed. (And as this hip hop girl grows older and more jaded, mic handlers tend to do that less and less, I must confess). So check this dynamic duo live whenever possible and big up to the DJs making Dubstep live out loud in the Bay Area!

Radio Perfilo - Ghislain Poirier on The Perennial Philosophy

Download | Duration: 01:29:34



I've been very much aware of the sounds of Ghislain Poirier since he first releases began to trickle out on Chocolate Industries, but it hasn't been until recently that i have fully experienced that state of cerebral sonic immersion into his works which allowed me to appreciate the breadth of his references and the range of his rhythms. The interesting thing is that while he has been able to progress and grow as a producer, his music obviously belongs to him even through significant stylistic change. I hear a Poirier piece and know it's his.

This live dj set is a great example of his own tracks and his taste in general, ranging from the hauntingly bombastic to the bass heavy club friendly. Working with emcees as ecclectic and different as Omnikrom, TTC, The Bug, and Beans, he has proven himself as a subtle iconoclast and tastemaker as a producer and dj... I seem to always dig the artists that start out in radio the most (DJ Signify bein one of those radio bread self made minimalists as well...). I dare you map all the influences and elements finding their way into Poirier's production style. No Ground Under is an excellent example of extreme sound assimilation and transfiguration through beat building where the pieces are familiar but not directly linked to any one genre or sample base. Poirier is proud that his sonic manipulations render a instrument or sample into an unrecognizable version of itself. This album is going to be a standard other releases in 2008 are measured by. As Poirier begins to earn the title of a master of audio collage, his style brings together the varied textures of rhythmic parts from traditional Europe, Africa, Jamaica, and North America; and when I listen, I feel like I'm exploring a concept akin to a Klimpt where I can't tell exactly where the image is from and experience light and dark brought together into something that is ultimately beautiful... and in Poirier's case, good to bounce to...

Check live sets when you can... Poirier and crew are known for throwing sound systems into the streets of Montreal, and his live shows often are with drums, other instruments and emcees. No Ground Under is out in Canada now and will be hittin the US in 2008 but Blazin is out now with sick b-side remixes from DJ C and The Bug so checkit...

This is a live set recorded on September 8th, 2007. Ghislain was a most gracious guest on The Perennial Philosophy and I must say he was one of the most mellow guest dj's I've ever had on. I might get around to posting the interview part later on as well but for now enjoy...

Radio Perfilo - Ghost (My Soul Looks Like This... mix)

Download | Duration: 01:00:33



Ahhhh... this mix is something I have literally been waiting years for, and I can't say how happy it has made me. If you've ever asked me who I'm feelin' in hip hop at any given moment then undoubtedly my answer had included whatever I've gotten most recently from Ghost
. There are few producers who represent my taste so well and continue to surprise and impress me with every new track and collaboration. This man truly works hard for hip hop. "My Soul Looks Like This" is more than an appropriate title for me as the second track in (Kemuri) is the reason I became a dj and is still one of my favorite beats of all time. For Ghost, this just shows the range of his production style and gives you a taste of his tastes as well. He's got plenty of new sounds makin' their way out to the world right now as his remix for the Soul Investigators just dropped. He has the new "It's All Love" 45 on its way and his second album is just about wrapped as well... so don't sleep, you can get a good taste on myspace if this set leaves you wantin more.  (Check Ghost's other groups Lingua Franca and Invisible Inc as well).

On August the 15th at Cafe Du Nord in SF, I recorded a farewell jam to the Rev. Mike Reed before he move along to NY and this is it y'all in all it's heavenly glory. The stage kept getting fuller and fuller as Spaceheater, Buddy Leroy, Gavin Root, and Khem joined Mochipet, Mike Boo, and of course... Mike Reed and his wonderful plaid plastered drums. So dig into sum Brochipet action... and see how we turn hip hop upside down in SF.

First off... Happy Birthday to Tap 10!!! I'm a day late but I know people are still feelin the party last night in more ways than one.
This mix is the second part of the radio show and it's all Tap... like he says at the end of the previous segment, these are some joints that fuel the Honor Roll flame and they're definitely the range of music that makes me warm and fuzzy too...you know I'm always buggin Mike and Track to rap over Hot Chip every time I see 'em.  The only unfortunate thing is that the recording dropped out in the middle so you don't get to know how really good this set was.  This is what I got and I promise I'll hit Tap up for another full mix soon or just get the crew back down to the show before too many weeks pass. In the meantime go see em live, cause they get better and better every time and some of my favorite people to see perform because of the energy they bring to the sets.

On August the 12th, Dj Tap 10, Trackademicks, Mike Baker the Bike Maker and 1 O A.K. joined me for our third Honor Roll Radio session.  This first section of the show includes Tap 10 playin' exclusive and upcoming releases of the Honor Roll roster of artists.  I rarely post shows uncut like this, but between the sampling of live performances and all the info they dropped, I didn't want to leave anything out.  I'll be adding a list of tracks played as soon as I get it from Tap but these boys have been busy bringin' the full force of their bay sounds to showcases for CMJ and The Fool's Gold Tour (featuring A-trak, Kid Sister, Mehdi, Kavinsky, Nick Catchdubs, and Kid Cutty). 
Check links for upcoming releases and shows.  The Honor Roll is taking over and leading the next generation hip hop with quality production touching on a broad range music styles.  They rock it old skool, nu-skool and trueskool with soul, grace, and some of that good old fashioned party rockin flare...  Ain't no party like an Honor Roll Party... get ready to pop yo' collar!

Radio Perfilo - Makin Trouble On My Radio With Troublemaker

Download | Duration: 00:56:45





I gotta give another thank you to E Da Boss for making this introduction and for bringing Troublemaker through the show last June. The range of beats and styles that he brought to this set is enough to make your jaw drop... and when it does, pick it up because it's going to drop again. And not only did he come through with the mix skills but he dropped an album on me that's got heat too... I think New Math is definitely one of my favorite instrumental albums of the year. So if you like this, keep an ear to the ground for Troublemaker's live sets as he's fresh off opening for Timbaland and back in LA holdin it down. Links are below and this man is all over hype machine and getting blogged left and right for his remixes and production skills which he likes to share so hit em up and collect some beats really worth having.

Radio Perfilo - Chris Ballantyne: All You Need is a Clear View of the Southern Sky

Download | Duration: 00:46:00

Something that I am going to be doing in the coming months is doing regular features of some of my favorite visual artists. Chris Ballantyne did a wonderful installation recently at the Parklife store in SF. His use of colour, space and subject have a way of extracting objects and scenes from daily life in way that challenges the viewer to think about one's environment in a different context. I love his paintings because they remind me of the intricate ideas that go into planning our urban spaces as well as the dense fragility of the earth beneath our feet. In this interview we talk about his influences and process, and we get the unique opportunity of walking through the installation with the artist narrating for his own presentation.

"Our ideas of nature and landscape are written into city zoning codes with specific ratios of grass and trees, to pavement and concrete, fulfilling our need for a utopic balance of nature and culture. Backyard boundaries incite border disputes, bringing up arguments about trespassing and ownership that seemingly take as much importance as foreign conflicts. Empty pools, white houses, fences, windows and highway overpasses are among the subjects I often employ to explore complex relationships between people and our surroundings." ~ Chris Ballantyne

Radio Perfilo - Jazzmatazz is Back: Part 2

Download | Duration: 00:46:22



This is the 2nd half of the show recorded to go with the interview.  I couldn't just keep this to myself.  Hopefully this will motivate people to get up and get out to support all live hip hop, especially Jazzmatazz, as these sounds help us to wax nostalgic on what hip hop has been to us and can be in the future.  There are groups re-inventing themselves and transcending  the sounds that have come before them everyday be it the realm of hip hop or taking it beyond to expand hip hop's influence in beat cultures all over the world and bpm range...
So enjoy this segment of uncut and anadulterated fusion of what has been, what is now, and what is next.

Radio Perfilo - Jazzmatazz is Back (live recording and interview with Guru and Solar)

Download | Duration: 01:21:38



I think i have to preface this podcast by saying that before I had discovered the more east coast side of hip hop and the sounds of Primier and Pete Rock and Jeru and on and on and on... I stumbled onto the Jazzmatazz album and this discovery definitely was a pivotal point in my becoming more fully versed in hip hop and the culture behind it.  Hearing the full cross section of ideas, voices, cultures and musical styles in this album was one of the many convincing aspects of the intellectual strength and importance of hip hop as vehicle of cultural communication and and social change.  So... needless to say... getting the chance to record a live Jazzmatazz session complete with full band, Guru and his new production partner Solar  (not to be confused with emcee francaise MC Solar) and then sit down with the two hip hop juggernauts for an hour after the show was an amazing experience.  Please go see them live whenever you get the chance because the musicians backing these two emcees are well worth seeing and for me this is definitely one version of hip hop as it should be... versatile and spontaneous and communicative of intricate ideologies.
They get props from right here...

The recording is explicit and not the version aired. I kept a raw cut so you could get the full effect.  This segment is the interview interlaced with segments of the live performance of Guru and Solar and the 7 Grand Band live at the Mezzanine in San Francisco on July 28th, 2007.

Radio Perfilo - Tycho (live in studio set)

Download | Duration: 01:03:05

Almost a full year ago I was stuck in JFK for a 12 hour flight delay...thank god for a plug and wifi so I had more to entertain me than this couple doing tandem yoga (although that was pretty damn interesting too) and spent a good deal of time meandering around myspace... I stumbled onto Tycho's and Dusty Brown's pages and later met Tycho through a visual performance he did after a Matmos lecture... thanks to Kid Kameleon for facilitating that one... I finally got to catch the full audio visual set simultaneously with Wax Tailor earlier this summer and knew I really needed to get Tycho on the show. His work shows depth and meditions on light and shadows of sound and colour to an extent that it can be ultimately hypnotizing without being somnambulatory.

On August 3rd 2007, Tycho performed a live set on The Perennial Philosophy drawing on an audio palette as smooth as his color choice. The full live set is an audio visual but for radio purposes, this was just the sounds. To further your visual image he's playing along with seqenced samples and percussive elements on a synth and running that through a moog effects unit.

Radio Perfilo - Kid Kameleon and a Surya Dubsession (Set 2)

Download | Duration: 00:58:43

This Set speeds it up just a little bit and comes at you a little harder and a little faster.  Be sure and note the Mapaputsi track... it kills me everytime i hear it. It's droppin tracks like these that actually get me to read Kid Kameleon's XLR8R column (and i'm notoriously bad about not reading mags...).
Since these two sets were meant to give people a taste of what the Surya Dub monthly is all about, I gave the set such a title.  And it was very appropriate because the monthly is truly about opening up people to an emerging genre that builds on beat connectivity and the relations of many wonderful sounds and genres.  They're bringing in some of the best names in dubstep to the bay and also representing with local residents that have been killin locally through many phases of dub and beat culture for years... i'm all respect on this one!

Radio Perfilo - DJ Enki and E Da Boss all 45's Part Three

Third Verse....same as the first...
For a few months now, the first Friday of the month at Madrone Lounge in Sf has become a diggers paradise. The night is an extension of Dj Centipede's (aka Mophono) Change the Beat weekly on Tuesday nights and nothing but 45's are allowed.  So far chunks of the best 45 collections in the Bay have been brought out as the likes of DJ Enki, Dj Centipede, DJ Om, Troublemaker, Joe Quixx and E Da Boss have been hittin the decks... and not only are cuts exquisite but the "cuts are exquisite"! cause these guys trick it out with a scratch here and a juggle there (which if you've ever tried to do with 7"s, then you KNOW what i'm sayin here).
The icing on the cake is that every month there a guest emcee... previously Raashan Ahmad of Crown City Rockers and Z Man of Heiro Imperium (and all over the Bay) have been holdin it down... this month Ryan Greene is on the mic... and speaking of this month... Spirit of 74 happens Friday August 3rd and then September 7th so come out if you can... this is the night where the DJ's come out their caves and the ladies get down.  You might even catch Enki rappin over "short but funky" while dancing... thinks like that just don't happen every day.

So these three mixes are the laid back Sunday afternoon radio version of the night... Enki and E Da Boss alternate on a three hour set and I had to put it all up... the last hour is mostly 2 by 2's on the ones and twos... till Enki and I start talkin on the mic ( I'm posting the dry version without mic breaks because we were talkin hellish ish about ish... especially E Da Boss since he wouldn't come talk on the mic too...

so kick back and enjoy... check the links... and holla at the boyz...
