FOLLOW UP: Red Lion Junglist exclusivly at Turnstyle

As always visiting Richmond is a hoot especially when you get to visit Turnstyle. This weekend was a virtual who's who in south easteren VA junglist scene. Or maybe it just felt like that as I got to touch base with my friends down south. Big ups to Joanna O & Jessie first and foremost. Konztant Junglist, Indica Jo, Patrick Currier, Dinah Myte, Ill Omen, Chris Grow, & the unforgettable Kristy Cuffee.

So there is a little bit of a proud father moment as I watched people roll through the Turnstyle shop and pick up the Red Lion Junglist shirt. Needless to say I owe Turnstyle some huge props for believing in my work. As soon as I they are available online I will update you all.

The Art Walk was kicked off by Joanna O, the First Lady of Drum & Bass in Richmond braved the chilly temperatures to warm up the wheels of steel.

The thing I enjoy most about watching Joanna O is the fierce focus she brings to her decks. At no point in the mix do you think that she is not in control of the sounds she is playing. Every time I've seen her play she bring the sharp shooter precision to the mix.

Shuffling into the mix between a Joanna O's jazzy funk set & RobOne's old school review I had my hands full but I enjoyed the challenge to make the evening flow smoothly. Wheeling out with some funky jazz hip-hop to help warm up the crowd.

About 3 records in I could see if I was going to get anyone excited to come hang out on this cold ass night I had to start rocking the island sound. So I removed my coat, pulled the ragga tracks and started warming up the street.
