    It’s the finale of Season 2 and we are joined by Grammy Award winning duo, Bob Moses. Born and bred in Brooklyn, New York, Bob Moses have taken the underground electronic scene by storm for the last decade with several notable performances at Burning Man, Red Rocks and beyond. The duo behind the band, Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance sit down and discuss the meaning behind their names, the cathartic qualities of their melancholic and hypnotic songwriting process, and the misconceptions people have about success.

    Amplifying Underground Dance Music In Kenya With L.A. Dave

    For this week’s episode we are joined by one of Kenya’s most prominent DJ and label owners, L.A. Dave. He has been putting Nairobi on the map for over 10 years with a hypnotic mix of minimal house with an occasional Afro House flair. His experiences living in Serbia, London, California and Tanzania exposed him to many different scenes and soundscapes, helping him build a solid foundation in bringing the underground to Kenya.

    Respect the environment around you because it will shape youIt’s not about what you’ve achieved, it’s about what you’ve given backCreate relevance instead of feeding off a culture of recognition
