"Remember, information is not knowledge; knowledge is not wisdom; wisdom is not truth; truth is not beauty; beauty is not love; love is not music; music is the best."
The more I explore the vast world of music, the more I realize how little I understand. I try to ignore the arbitrary boundaries of music and pay attention to what seems most important to me – the musicality and creative intention of the artists. The collection here is my recorded history of exploring music and attempts at sonic assemblage. Songs with a denote my favorite mixes. Enjoy!

On January 31st, 2012 my brother Solomon Kahn died in a car accident while touring as a DJ in Thailand. Solomon’s fiance Nicole, with friends and family, organized a benefit on February 29th to raise funds to help cover financial costs incurred by the tragedy. The event featured a collection of DJs and musicians from Solomon’s scene including DJ Jazzy Jeff, Justin Hoffman, Chris Clouse, Mei Lwun. Ean Golden and Ryan Lucero. This recording is my opening set from the event - a tribute to my brother. I picked music that either expressed feelings or invoked the music my brother loved. I hope you enjoy.

An attempt to map the evolution of regional world music based on the music on-hand. Africa begins with 1950’s field recordings of traditional song and chant and traverses the 60’s, 70’s, 80, 90’s, then ends with an electronic afrobeat fusion track by Tony Allen (Fela Kuti’s drummer).

The landscape where funk, jazz, soul, blues, gospel, and rock collide is a difficult one to classify. Rare groove is a loose-knit term which avoids the effort of dissection, but describes a fertile period during the 1970’s when these musics merged in beautiful ways.
