I’m very excited to have Anthony Valadez (KCRW) come by next week to talk about his newest album In Search Of (on it’s release date) as well as play a DJ set. In addition to DJing and producing, he is also an avid photographer and blogger. It’s been a few years now that I’ve noticed a pretty heavy overlap in the artists showing up on our playlists and in our studios and I’m looking forward to what is surprisingly our first in-person meeting.
