Imani of The Pharcyde | Beats of All-Nations Radio 052 on Dublab
Imani of the beloved Pharcyde legacy joins us to share music from his latest musical incarnation The Phantasmagorical. The first of several installments, Vol.1, was released earlier this summer, co-Produced by Computer Jay, and stamped with Ta’raach’s ‘Loveturl’ seal. We dig deep into The Pharcyde’s history, what it was like working with a lesser known James “J Dilla” Yancey and everything that has led up this current series of solo releases with a very tight production team.

In the second hour we welcome back our ‘big brother’ DJ Gabe Real. He blesses us with an eclectic mix of new sounds from the season and checks in with details on his continuous dj livestreams, studio work and other ways he’s been keeping busy during the on-going pandemic.
