My first and only true love…Music

Long before I touched a sampler or a turntable..I touched keys as a kid. A bit rusty but the soul is within. Never learned to read..

but im always.. hearing something in my head..

The hunt..

Went hunting for a couple of 45’s earlier and ended up with 2 armful of records. Late nite quiet time listening session, rarely get a chance to do this anymore. You have to embrace the grooves and understand the nuances of each song. Detail. Analog. #vinyl #DJlife #Unique74 Photography: A-Ski

Currently Reading: BOBBY WOMACK My Story

The heavier the crown the bigger the weight..Any man who can turn down $175,000 knows his true value is bigger than settling for less. Integrity. Hit upside the head with nothing but jewels & wisdom. womack

Bryon Lee and my homie from Trinidad..

So..as I do my 4 mile run regiment, I came across 5 yard sales. I ran into one special house..the cat with the Yankees hat and the gold chain was the main cat. I asked him if he had any records. He says “well, what are you looking for?” “Everything “. “Do you have any Byron Lee?”..he gave me a very surprised look. He says “we’re from Trinidad..hold tight”. As I wait, his drop dead fine and very courteous daughters informed me that he has a lot of records and the history of Soca music. He comes back with a box of Funk, Soca & Reggae. He says “you can knock on this door anytime, I got more records!” #vinyl #analogImageA
