Listen Back to Loops + Dots Episode 8 – New Music from Jonah Yano & Nono, Jacob Mann, Skinny Pelembe, Mndsgn – Special Guest: Kiefer
Show number 8!
The eighth installment of my Loops + Dots radio show on Dublab aired brand new heat from Innovative Leisure’s Jonah Yano & Nono, LA musician Jacob Mann, Brownswood’s Skinny Pelembe, and Stones Throw’s Mndsgn.
This week we also welcomed Stones Throw artist and musician Kiefer to the studio to take us through the #SixSongScenario, where artists, DJs, and music aficionados tell the story behind their favorite tracks and explain what these songs mean to them.
Kiefer and I talked about shoutouts from Pete Rock, European apple juice, Sonny Clark, Nirvana, Robert Glasper, Mulgrew Miller, finding beats in the pre-Spotify era via CDs from Amazon, and how Joni Mitchell never lies.
We also played some UNRELEASED Kiefer joints including a Dilla cover with Jonah Levine!
Here’s how we kicked it together.
Jonah Yano & Nono – “Perfume”
Jacob Mann – “Bumble Buddies”
Skinny Pelembe – “My Love is Burning, Down”
Mndsgn – “Sumdim”
Swarvy ft Kiefer Shackelford – “Spam Grease”
