Play That Record!

It’s been almost 5 years since my last blog post … and LOTS has happened since, both personally and musically.

Me and a bunch of friends created The 264 Cru, which changed the clubbing landscape in Dubai and introduced a different sound to the city, then I worked at a failed music start-up, and started DJing and collecting vinyl!

Since lockdown began and not being able to share music as much as before, I decided to start uploading full recordings of some of the records I receive.

This record was my first play after receiving it fresh. It’s by a band called Magic In Threes. Discovered the band through a YouTube channel now called Proved Records – previously known as Provocative Educative !, Is a YT channel dedicated to dig out the underground gems of Hip-Hop, Jazz, Funk, Electronic & other genres of music.

I would like to take some time here to give a very special shout-out to Bandcamp for being the leading beacon that’s truly keeping the music industry alive. I’ve tried to reach out last year with a new pivot in mind for them, which could’ve been a flaming success now in this new pandemic digital landscape, but unfortunately couldn’t reach anyone there.

I host a show on this leading Indian online community radio station called Boxout FM, where I share my latest finding and purchases from Bandcamp appropriately called the Bandcamp Hour.
