“I have some friends and I love them. If they weren’t here, neither would I be. I’m not going to pretend to know anything other than this.”
This is the first from a two part broadcast celebrating the lives, work and legacy of many artists who are no longer with us: Chelsea Faith Dolan (Cherushii), Johnny Igaz (Nackt) and Griffin Madden of Tri Works. They have influenced us, inspired us, mentored us and shaped who we are as artists, DJs, producers, as human beings and as music lovers who want nothing but to ride the rhythm together.
This broadcast also features unreleased tracks from both Chelsea and Johnny that are deeply personal for many of us as they all represent these profoundly gifted artists. There are also tracks featured that they loved and were moved by.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this: my cohost budding DJ Blake Alexander Thomas, Roche (100% Silk, Mathematics, Run the Length of Your Wildness), master DJ and human music encyclopedia David Siska (Sonic Sunset), synth goddess The Creatrix (No-Tech), Russell E.L. Butler (Opal Tapes), local DJs Ash Williams (The Chase), Tri works‘ Denim Decades and Dorian. I love that I can hear you laugh and cheer in the background. I love that you have surrounded me and each other with your encouragement and love. I love that I am getting through this with you.
Thank you to Nihar (Surface Tension), Aaron J (T.Vivian, Sure Thing), Guillaume (Spring Theory), Avalon Emerson, Cooper Saver, Courtesy, Cal Volner-Dison and all who came to support us during this broadcast. Finally thank you to all of our listeners.
Chelsea, Johnny and Griffin. This broadcast is for you.
