Chart positions

This show was 88th in the global jazz chart.

This was the first DJ set I posted online, recorded at Zeba in Columbia Heights for Mischief's Cross-Pollination party on July 12, 2014.

I'd just started DJing only a few months before, after having MC'd around the world for two decades while working since 2003 as a civil rights lawyer, independent columnist and grassroots organizer in Washington, DC. I originally started spinning to throw myself beats to rhyme over, but then discovered in this new medium a passion that's left me more inspired than I have been in years!
