Hometown: Portland, Oregon

What he’s all about:

“Every Friday from 3-4 PM, I host Super Soul Set on KWVA. The majority of the music I spin comes directly from the dusty crates of my vinyl library. There is something so satisfying about being able to hold onto a big, circular plate of wax; when you touch the music you play you feel more connected to it. My goal with my show is too keep the funk alive. Many people don’t know it, but funk is a music almost anyone can get down to. I want people to head into their weekends with music that will make them want to get their party started as early as 3 in the afternoon. Most modern music lacks that soulful vibe, so I want to bring that back.”

Sample Playlist for Super Soul Set:

1. D’Angelo – “Feel Like Making Love”
2. Cheri – “Murphy’s Law”
3. Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings – “My Man is a Mean Man”
