Did a quick interview with DJ Skeme Richards of Nostalgia King about how I’m operating musically during the pandemic and the age of social distancing.
I was interviewed by Plus One Me about a lot of different things but mainly drumming, teaching college, my outdated studio gear, the economics of drum break records and a SXSW gig gone wrong that changed my entire musical path!
I was interviewed by Brian Kayser (730) for We Goin In podcast. The Du-Rites live album, why I stopped being a jack of many trades, my pops, migraines, touring and my visceral and borderline unreasonable hatred for mayonnaise/egg-based sauces. Enjoy.
I’m a guest interview on the Bedroom Beethoven podcast today.
Listen in HERE
Hit it up on YouTube.
We cover a whole lot of ground but here’s the blurb:
“J-Zone swings by before dropping The Du-Rites live album, Soundstage at 6, to chat about music back in the 50’s and 60’s and how young musicians had to survive the tutelage of ruthless mentors like Miles Davis and Joe Dukes. This leads us down a winding road of social media culture, the self loathing nature of artist and aspects of professionalism, Nas’ beat selections and his own love affair with funk music. And of course, Cadillacs! For the next hour, J-Zone drops gems, and I was honored to sit down with him and share some insight with you all. Enjoy!”
On tour last week I sat down with Blueprint and talked music for his Super Duty Tough Work podcast. We cover just about every aspect of my career and it’s uncut and uncomfortable! Here’s the entire thing (links to Soundcloud, Spotify, etc. are in the description of the YouTube video):
Pablo and I stopped by WFMU for The Duane Train with DJ Duane Harriott to talk Gamma Ray Jones, 70s cop shows and our 2018 output both as The Du-Rites and individually outside the fold.
Listen to the show here. We come in at the 01:01:00 mark if you want to skip to it.
I spoke with Consumer Help Guide about my favorite drum set alongside heavyweights like Steve Gadd, Peter Erskine and many more so I’m guessing this was a wide selection of drummers with varying levels of prestige, haha. Also wish the Du-Rites had 4 albums (3rd out this fall) but can’t win em all. Nonetheless some helpful info if you’re looking to buy a drum set.
