WHAT SO NOT

‚ÄčThis week's DJ Spotlight is DJ Boosie Doosie 2, AKA Betty Yu! Learn more about this creative DJ below!
Artist: 
ALA-NI
Label: 
Missing Piece Records

From the moment I loaded this album into my stereo and heard the first few notes of the first song I was simply blown away. ALA.NI's vocals are some of the warmest and smoothest and most delightful I've ever heard, and listening to You & I is like slipping into warm bath...for your ears. With vocals somewhere in between Billie Holliday, Judy Garland, Vera Lynn, and Edith Piaf, ALA.NI is one of the best singers I have ever heard. Ever. It's not surprising - apparently NI is related to a legendary cabaret singer, and trained in Paris.

Fifty years ago, the Grateful Dead released their eponymous debut album, and tens of thousands of hippies converged on the Haight-Asbury neighborhood in San Francisco for what would become known as the Summer of Love. The United States was embroiled in the Vietnam War and one of the biggest riots in history over the course of five days in Detroit. I have been thinking a lot about the role of music and festivals in our current society, and the role of music in escapism.
