This week we welcomed LA artist Jon E.K. to the studio to take us through the #SixSongScenario, where musicians, DJs, and music aficionados tell the story behind their favorite tracks and explain what these songs mean to them.

We talked about what it means to make “villain-pop,” Michael Jackson’s music videos, how you can listen to the Funky Drummer loop all day long, how listening to Ice Cube’s “Today Was a Good Day” instantly transports you to cruising around LA in an El Camino, how genuinely fantastic Hiatus Kaiyote side-projects are, and how important it is to communicate emotion through lyrics.
