On this monumental 25th episode we welcome a real legend, Danny Holloway. He blesses the decks with his trade mark 45 slingin’ we talk about his time in the industry, his work as a music journalist at the NME newspaper, which led to him accompaning the Rolling Stones to Jamaica. He then joined Island Records’ London, being mentored by label owner Chris Blackwell. We discuss his contributions to 3 Bob Marley albums, plus work with Jimmy Cliff, The Meters, The Maytals, The Heptones and others. Holloway currently co-owns the popular reissue 45s label, Ximeno Records which is working to soon launch an exclusive record club!
Inka One is another LA heavy hitter, representing Boombox LA. He blesses us with a uniquely fresh Dilla Tribute as his crew prepares their annual Doin’ It for Dilla party this Saturday Night at Grandstar Jazz Club. Mike Styles opens the show with an all Brazilian vinyl set in light of the upcoming Carnaval season and Gabe Real wraps the show with all Reggae 45s.

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.
