Focus... is known as a forerunner and pioneering voice in Hip Hop culture since the late 90's. We have a great and honest dialogue about what it was like being the son of Bernard Edwards; legendary bassist and founding member of the hit-making 70’s disco band CHIC, how his skills were first recognized by Dr. Dre, who admired the creative sound and ingenuity of Focus…‘ genius musical ability and signed him as a staff producer for Aftermath Entertainment.

168: The Koreatown Oddity
This episode is a masterclass in modern narrative, following my guest this week The Koreatown Oddity as he recounts childhood car accidents, his life in Koreatown, his career in stand up comedy, comic books, movies, spirituality, his new album 'ISTHISFORREAL?' and the kitchen sink. The new album gestures at a running talk-show concept while he deploys a breadth of styles to match the record’s expansive themes. Great music, even better human being. Enjoy!

167: Anti-Lilly (feat. Indigo Klan)
This week, my Houston bro Anti-Lilly swings by the podcast to chat about his life growing up, dealing with the trials and tribulations of his 20's, his growth as a person and touring musician, and his new music. To get a better comprehension of his journey, I invite his Indigo Klan collective into the fold, De'Vante Hunter and GodKing Preach to give us an extra dose of perspective. Music brought them all together, brotherhood is what keeps them together. Their rules are their own and their competition is a reflection in the mirror. To be Indigo is to be at peace with yourself. The new album 'Over the Woods' is out now. Enjoy! Visit the website: https://www.bedroombeethovens.com/ Support the show on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/bedroombeethovens
166: B. Bravo
This week I return with veteran producer B. Bravo to talk about life in California, and navigating our way through his struggles and success to create the funk you enjoy today. He returns to Bastard Jazz with the long-awaited follow-up to his 2017 debut LP, “Paradise,” with a fresh full-length offering: “Vizionz.” Replete with his signature future funk vibes, infectiously soulful grooves, and talkbox excursions, “Vizionz” sees the multifaceted artist take the classic West Coast into outer space.
