Episode 031 features Adrian Plus joins us with a seamless steamy mix that ranges from sweet summer soul to modern electronic boogie with a solid dose of hip hop and everything that influences him in between.
We open the show with another highly requested, feel good reggae 45 set by DJ Gabe Real, playing the not so obvious or easy to find chunes. We take a trip down memory lane and he discusses his work as an engineer on Afta-1’s “FORM” LP as one of the first projects that came out of Music Culture Freedom Studio as it plays behind the discussion. Subira wraps the show with an eclectic mix of hip hop and Mike Styles hangs out for the conversation.
Catch Adrian Plus every Second Saturday at Homage Brewing for “Arts and Drafts” at the Pomona Artwalk.
Rock Steady Queen Aretha.

Producer Max I Million (https://soundcloud.com/max-i-million) has put together an amazing conceptual mix transmitting live and worldwide from Stockholm, Sweden to Pomona, CA. He’s done official remix work for the likes of CL Smooth, Edo G, Planet Asia, Kev Brown, and Masta Ace. “I also worked with Promoe from Looptroop Rockers and ADL, who are about as close you can get to Swedish Hip Hop legends.” Max’s last release was on an instrumental cassette called Beats, Mines & Life, where he shares space with Ayatollah, Khrysis, M-Phazes and Nottz. Look out for his latest drop with Chuck D, Bishop Lamont and Mykill Miers on Counterweight Records. His right hand man Chapee intros the mix on a track the two previously collaborated on. “He’s a real master of ceremony, and I’m usually that cat in the background who speak with my music.”
Mike Styles opens the show with a short mix featuring new music from Makaya McCraven, Co. Fee, Sumohair and SUPERSAN. Gabe Real seals the deal with a dj buffet and a blast from the past when he reunites with a scratch record he pressed and released in the early 2000s.

GUEST CURATOR’S NOTE
“The world is incredibly digital and I like to put my hands in the soil, getting analog again. Everything is getting funneled into a digital frame and something gets lost.
On August 26, I want to celebrate the analog. We’ll be spinning vinyl and interacting in real life.” -Cut Chemist
