Listen Back to Loops + Dots Episode 11 – New Music from Joe Armon-Jones & Georgia Anne Muldrow, Godtet, Jamila Woods, Ivy Lab, Kiefer – Special Guest: Sampa the Great – Ras G Tribute
Show number 11!
The eleventh installment of my Loops + Dots radio show on Dublab aired brand new newness from Joe Armon-Jones & Georgia Anne Muldrow, Godtet, Jamila Woods, Ivy Lab, and Kiefer.
This week we also welcomed Sampa the Great to the show!
I had a chat with Sampa while sitting on the stage before her recent show at Gold Diggers in LA. We talked about the first song she ever wrote, her memories of her parents playing folk tapes from Zambia, her first time listening to 2Pac, studying to be a film director in San Francisco, why she decided to go to Australia, the amazing music scene in Melbourne, working with Perrin Moss and Blue Lab Beats, listening to South Sudan rapper Krown while on tour, having flowers on stage, healing, and the metaphor of flowers to show what happens after healing, why people keep asking her if she likes to sprint, painting, how to take home with you wherever you go, returning to the truest form of yourself, filming the “Final Form” music video in Zambia, and the profound concept behind her new album, The Return, out next month via Ninja Tune and available as a red and green vinyl package in honor of the Zambian flag.
We also paid tribute to Ras G, who sadly passed away last week, by spinning three of my favorite productions from him at the top of the show. Listen to more of his music as previously featured on this site and in my radio shows here. He will be dearly missed.
