Akira

So, ten years after I flew to LA and signed my first record deal with Interscope, last night I DJed the Interscope Christmas Party at Blind Dragon.

The legendary Dennis Graham AKA Drake’s dad come up to me at the end and gave me dap and said I was amazing. He’s the nicest guy in the world.

LIFE IS NUTS HUH?

LOVE TO ALL MY DAY ONE FAM AND ALL MY NEW FRIENDS!

WALK WITH ME ON THE JOURNEY TO MORE SUCCESS!

WE THE BEST!

SPLASH!

Did this back in the Spring, and finally it’s been released, track 6 on The Kooks’ official new remix album, which I am told they’re gonna tour, playing the songs in the manner of the remixes, so that’s exciting. Shout out Man Like Spiky Phil, my old school ace from another place, for bringing me in.

Can’t find it on Soundcloud yet, and I’m on my last strike so I’m not gonna risk upping it, so you’ll have to enjoy it on Spotify for now, or cop the project on iTunes here.

Oh, and I dropped it on the podcast this week too.

Its December in LA, and this is AKIRALIVE014, my regular-ass live DJ mix, smashed out in realtime right here in the Studio Of Dreams. This guy was inspired by HBO’s THE LEFTOVERS, an entirely peakwave television show that concluded its second season on Sunday lawing me sobbing, and days later, unable to escape its magic.

Shout out everyone that’s been enjoying our new music video, and shout out Adam Walton who played it on his BBC Radio Wales show the other night. Its holiday season in LA,   which means I’m DJing twice a night all week long pretty much, but the best news is, after month snap months apart, my lil family finally returns to my loving arms this Thursday. I am excitedly ordering nappies on Amazon and stocking the fridge with fruit and treats. Christmas is coming early this year.

LOVE TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, OH MY PEOPLES!

SPLASH!
