DJ Personify | Welcome To New Orleans | Tucker & Bloom Bags

With Mardi Gras season upon us we are revisiting DJ Personify's mix dedicated to the Big Easy! Be on the lookout for more from our city guide series featuring travel tips and mixes from a DJ who specializes in the musical history of their town.

Welcome to New Orleans: A tribute to New Orleans Funk and Soul is the work of New Orleans nativeDJ Personify. Raised in the Crescent City, the die-hard Hip-Hop fan learned early on that many of the samples he discovered originated in New Orleans. He soon became infatuated with the Funk and Soul music recorded there and has spent the better part of the last twenty years immersed in the culture of those records. Personify’s passion for New Orleans' music and culture extends to the present day and is manifested in this DJ mix masterpiece. Lovingly compiled, all of the artists featured on the mix are native to New Orleans with the exception of Hugo Montenegro who plays alongside Al Hirt (a New Orleans native) and The Headhunters, who are included here because of their work with Bill Summers (a life-long New Orleanian.) All songs and samples used on this mix were recorded from vinyl sources.

We hope you enjoy and happy Fat Tuesday!

Legendary DJ/author/b-ball sage Bobbito García has released his first children’s book Aim High, Little Giant, Aim High! The story is about Taína, a nine-year-old, Afro Boricua basketball novice growing up in Brooklyn during a pandemic who learns valuable life lessons from family, friends, and the community, both on and off the court. The narrative seamlessly weaves social-emotional learning with math, arts, social justice, identity, culture, and sports education, all in a fun (and at times goofy) manner. The pre-order for the book is already sold out but stay tuned to grab the restock on a hard copy which is on the way.
