I coaxed my homie into making some mixes for the podcast last summer and even though the conditions weren’t the best and he was a bit inebriated we hammered out a few mixes in my small sweltering apartment on the University of Utah campus.
The blend I’m featuring this week was an attempt to reach every ear I could. It’s a 36-minute edited mix of contemporary songs with a few older songs mixed in so you, your backpacker homies, the party goers, and even the old school heads can vibe wherever you listen to music at.
I think I got everyone covered. Let me know what you think about the mix and if you have music to contribute or want to lend your skills on the turntables, please send your material to email@example.com.
Greetings! In an attempt to bring you a musical component to the podshow I am featuring mixes from local DJs! Our first mix was made by none other than DJ Street Jesus and contains a 45-minute medley of Rock, Soul, Rap, and R&B from his personal playlist! Tune in every other week (or our “bye” weeks) for another blend! We’ve already curated Utah Hip-Hop mixes, top-40 mixes, edited mixes, instrumental mixes and more for your listening pleasure!
V.O. Sensei and Shado of the Muzic Clan/Free Nation stopped by our West Valley recording home on Sunday, December 11th to share what they’ve been up to. Besides the new single and video for Elevate, recording new music and performing at shows, we talk about sports and the artists they keep an ear to the internet for like Isaiah Rashad, SZA, Kendrick Lamar and fellow clan member MPH.
They’ve got a show at Urban Lounge for SLUG Localized and a basketball camp for the youth at the Boys & Girls Club in Glendale on the 30th of December on the horizon under the moniker of Level Up Hoops. With their creativity, exuberance, and work ethic it’s hard to see the Muzic Clan slowing down soon. The question is, will you be a part of the movement or will you get left behind?

Hello faithful listeners! This episode contains a look into the endeavors of my friends at Bear Head music!

They brought in some new music as well, but the release date is not set in stone yet!

Biz Fam’s Zigga, stopped by the studio to talk about his new album: “Cherubs &Scarubs!”
We also talk fatherhood!
He’s no newcomer to the life of a rap! Zigga has been in the SLC Hip-Hop scene for six years. Backed by Elm Productions and Audio Aquarium, his new project promises to be memorable!

You can find his new material every Wednesday at: https://soundcloud.com/ziggabiz
“The lost love child of Kurt Cobain,” was in studio with me to discuss his upcoming projects and we discuss ideas on how to unify the: Utah hip-hop scene.
Despite his humble nature, Erasole James (a.k.a. Awe Rosa) is arguably the leader of one of Utah’s most well-known rap groups, the Dine Krew! Awr Rosa is also a budding solo print and recording artist.
His latest release, Tawa’s Nephew, along with all of he and Dine Krew’s previous material is available for free on bandcamp (or you could be cool and donate a little scratch). Now that’s love.

Episode 3: Steady Mobbin’ with Dusk Raps!
In this episode of the People’s Podshow I interviewed one of Utah’s seminal rap artists: Dusk Raps!
Dusk has been reppin’ the 801 since ’96 (OG,
Triple OG status). He came in and talked about his new single, “Yung O’Shea,” he talks about the young artists he’s been keeping tabs on, being a white rapper in Utah and why he isn’t an Eminem fan.
Without my generous sponsors at Justified Ink, 1675 Cosmetics, Eighty-Ace Clothing and EarWholeMedia.com I would not be able to do the things I do — so I always have to thank them.

Stay tuned after the episode for a musical accompaniment by our house DJ, the
Incomparable DJ Street Jesus! Check out his Mixcrate account—you can download all our blends for free!
Bijuu is a young Utah producer who has been on my radar for a while now. I received his first official beat tape, Crab Cakes, in my inbox last summer and proceeded to write a review for SLUG magazine and for some reason, it didn’t get published. I promised him I’d get a review published (if I could) and help promote his work — so when I heard his new project, Raspberry Jams Vol. 2, I just had to have him on the show — his ear for samples and drums is seasoned far beyond his years.
Check out Bijuu’s work at bandcamp.com and contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to lease or buy any instrumentals.
After the interview, listen up for a mix from in-house turntablist Street Jesus! You can catch Jesus De La Calle spinning at Bourbon House on Fridays and Sundays.
As always, I must thank my sponsors at Justified Ink, 1675 Cosmetics, Uprok and Eighty-Ace Clothing….
