Breaking The Ice: DJ Platurn

Our good friend DJ Platurn has recently released a mix of rare Icelandic psych, funk, soul, and disco that has lovingly been compiled, mixed, and presented in a masterful way. The Icelandic DJ and his cousin spent years collecting and combing through music from the motherland and the resulting piece is the first of it's kind. Something you should defiantly give a listen to.

Aim High, Little Giant, Aim High

décembre 14, 2022

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.
