I included many of the local artists that define the Oakland sound. Of course I included Hip Hop acts like Too Short, E-40, Digital Underground, 2pac, Souls of Mischief, Richie Rich, Hammer & even Sway and Tech but then went back to classic artist like George Duke, Sly & The Family Stone, Tower of Power, Sheila E., Club Nouveau, Edwin Hawkins, & Santana. I topped it off with “Foxy Girls In Oakland” by Rodger Coliins.
Check out my mixtape and leave your likes and feedback in support of The Town. Much Love!
Lexdray Presents: Welcome To Oakland
This is a hot collaboration between DJ Platurn of the Oakland Faders and Jennifer Johns. This is a good appetizer for her mixtape with Kev Choice, “The Chronicles Of The Aquarian Mind” dropping soon. Look for Platurn or Jennifer Johns at a local venue near you.
This looks to be a lively weekend of events around Oakland and the Bay Area. I would like to highlight a couple of Oakland Soul Divas that are performing this weekend, as well as a fellow DJ’s birthday celebration.
DJ Spair has won multiple mixtape awards, DJed internationally, spun with many of the best artists in entertainement, is one of the founders of the Oakland Faders collective, maintains residencies at the top night clubs in Las Vegas and is a good friend. For my first installment of Music Monday, I’m featuring his hot remix of Iamsu’s hit “100 Grand.”
