Shahid Buttar playing Roman & YoYo's birthday party in Oakland (01.28.2017)

Playing tracks by

The Andrews Sisters, Immortal Technique, High Society Collective, Homeboy Sandman, Mr. Lif and more.

Consider this my ode to the Resistance.

I spun this set during sunset on a Saturday in Oakland for a housewarming and joint birthday party celebrating a pair of brilliant activist lawyers and a new intentional community. It includes the most hip hop I’ve ever included in a set, with some of my favorite and most conscious tracks leading into some swing, melodic, and goofy house before tribal and melodic interludes leading up to a dreamy and finally disquieting close.

Make sure you catch the lyrical mashup around 56:00.

Big thanks to Meg for blessing the mic with me, Roman for including me on the lineup for his birthday party, Yo Yo for helping build so fascinating and inspired a community, and everyone else who joined us—especially my homeskillets Camilla and Robin, who I first met in Black Rock City over a decade ago and who helped keep the music going.
