The DANJ team welcomes in Alex Ayala aka King Hippo (Fresh Roasted, International Anthem, Lumpen Radio) for Episode 07. The discussion centers around the idea of Cultural Preservation, and the importance of fostering community and supporting individual expression as powerful actions towards preservation. The Chicago perspective is examined both locally and as part of the larger US scene. As well, we discuss the impact US culture has on the global community and the lessons we can learn from other cultural institutions.
As DANJ, the core of our mission is DJ advocacy. We pride ourselves on serving music culture and providing education, and these podcasts are an important tool in achieving those goals. So thanks to all the listeners and subscribers out there! But we also operate in the real world with event productions, and coming up Saturday 3/17/2018 we’re honored to host the Chicago Regional DMC Battle & the US Battle for Supremacy at Lincoln Hall. Discounted Presales are available here –> http://bit.ly/DMC2018CHI
