K. Leimer In Conversation with Mark "Frosty" McNeill

Palace of Lights founder, K. Leimer, joins host, Mark “Frosty” McNeill, to talk about the experimental recording and composing techniques that he began exploring in the mid 70s and that continue to evolve today. Leimer’s catalog includes 20 solo albums plus collaborative albums with Savant and Marc Barreca. In 2014, RVNG Intl. released A Period of Review (Original Recordings: 1975 - 1983), featuring unheard portions of Leimer’s archives. Irrational Overcast, his newest solo LP, is out now through First Terrace Records.

Our radio stations are committed to discovering and sharing the most unique, obscure, diverse and at-times bizarre artists that shift the cultural landscape of the city.

So bring on the 20TH July - See all you radio fans on the dance floor!

Live at dublab | EP. 11

FROM THE VAULTS: J Rocc live at the Root Down

This live mix from J Rocc, Beat Junkies founder, DJ, and producer was recorded at the world famous Root Down party that happened every week in LA during the late ’90s and early ’00s. DJs like Loslito, Miles, Cut Chemist, DJ Dusk, Peanut Butter Wolf, and others could be heard spinning the best in hip-hop, funk, soul, roots, jazz and latin music. During its lifespan, the club drew indie hip-hop groups, funk bands, conscious MCs and athletic turn turntablists from around the state, and was an authentic piece of LAs local culture for nearly a decade.

FROM THE VAULTS is an ongoing curation project produced by Ben Sinclair, resurfacing rare live performances and DJ sets recorded during dublab’s first ten years.

Tashi Wada In Conversation with Mark “Frosty” McNeill

🗣 #TashiWada joins Mark “Frosty” McNeill to talk about his latest collaborative album, Nue, released by RVNG Intl. Nue furthers the familial and creative bond between Tashi Wada and his father, Fluxus artist Yoshi Wada, alongside a supporting ensemble, including Julia Holter, Simone Forti, Cole MGN, and Corey Fogel. Combining synthesis with a spectrum of acoustic instruments and non-equal tempered tuning techniques, Nue is a uniquely personal statement from Tashi Wada compelled by collaboration and the ensuing spaces shared and explored.
