LISTEN: Kelela – Do It Again

Kelela, a D.C-born and L.A-based singer, is one of my new favorite artists and when I say I listen to her every single day, I listen to her all day every day. Her music is the perfect mix between 90′s R&B influence and a bit of “electro funk.” Kelela stated her music is “not just weird, it’s deliberately off-putting.”

Catch the link for her mixtape, CUT 4 ME, HERE.

LIFE: Vashtie x 1992 x Toronto x Che Kothari & Wan Luv Party (2.21.14)

DSC02139 Last Friday I went to Toronto for my very first time to DJ for the Che Kothari & Wan Luv’s Launch alongside DJ Huggy Bear, DJ Mensa, DJ Lissa Monet & many more at Tattoo! Despite me being jet lagged from London & some other insane hiccups, I had a nice time. There were tons of amazing vegan/raw restaurants and I got to meet the artist Gyimah Gariba whom I met online a few years ago after he made some incredible art of me. DSC02135

The green room had all my favorites from my rider. In case you don’t know what a rider is, it’s a list of the basic needs that an artist/DJ needs that the promoter provides. My list is pretty simple; raw nuts, raw vegetables, hummus, water…oh and whiskey and champagne. What? I mean, you just never know.DSC02153
