With special guest Tyler Hawkins, this week’s episode of TMN Radio was a particularly fun one featuring a mix of new age soul, R&B, hip-hop and house. On the eve of his performance at our Danksgiving North Bay Fire benefit show, Tyler shared a couple unreleased tracks alongside songs that have served as inspiration. The second half hones in on some of my favorite new electronic releases from Mr. Carmack’s flawless remix of a Chromeo classic to Yaeji’s hip-house perfection. Also mixed in are a few top notch house selections from Ditongo, Lane 8 and John Monkman c/o my good friend and former co-host Dom. Saturday’s Danksgiving party raised $3400 for the RCU Community Fund!

With the Dirtybird Campout vibes still strong, Friday’s show was half random new tunes and half tech-house slaps. The front side features a chilled out, moody vibe highlighting new projects from Yumi Zouma, Kelela, Blue Hawaii and Four Tet. The back side is a straight party with me reminiscing about the various phenomenal sets from Dirtybird Campout last weekend.

Anytime I take even a week off the show it feels like I’ve got way too much music to share. This time around I started with about 5 hours and whittled it down to the ones that best fit the vibe. Per usual, the show varies pretty drastically genre-wise spotlighting new albums from Mount Kimbie, LCD Soundsystem, Alvvays, Nosaj Thing, Brockhampton & Klyne. Also featured are singles from Adam Vida, Giraffage, Qrion, Slow Magic, Courtship Ritual & more.

Off the heels of Outside Lands, an incredible set from Washed Out in Oakland and escalating social turmoil, I had a wide array of music to share on this week’s episode–from the left field hip-hop of ZGTO to Photay‘s infectious electronica to straight disco bliss from Folamour and Moon Boots. There’s a lot going on in the world right now and I hope this injection of diverse tunes helps you get through the week!

Inspired by Japanese Breakfast’s dreamy, enveloping latest album, the front half of this week’s show featured a diverse mix of new tunes to get lost in. From there, it veered into some disco inspired indie including tunes from Arcade Fire’s newest album. After a healthy dose of brightness, I sprinkled in some moody electronic music before closing out with a mini-mix inspired by Four Tet’s Fabriclive album, Roosevelt’s Midnight Versions EP and some very serious Frank Ocean fomo.
