DJ Sakir reminds us of DJs like King Britt and Geology, equal parts soulful and ecletic. She joins the crew on this episode to talk music, art and life.
We get into the origins of her creativity and her forthcoming DJ lifestyle brand OHM, how she deals with the male-dominated DJ culture, booking gigs in Brooklyn, growing up in Florida and participating in the Zulu Nation, private events vs. club gigs, and what exactly is “ear intelligence.”
Plus, we dicuss the Wu-Tang sculpture album, Jay-Z’s medallion controversy, Noir Soul, Shazam, Blood, Sweat and Heels, Puerto Rico and The Rocksteady Crew, Idris Elba vs. Questlove, and roman numerals. We close with The King of TV crushing Netflix. Make sure to check DJ Sakir’s webpage and get on them mixes!
