“Listening to records is how I travel the world without leaving LA.”
In VF Live our favourite artists take you inside their homes, record shops and studios, for intimate mixes and performances.
For Koreatown Oddity’s first VF Live set, on the heels of the release of his album Little Dominiques Nosebleed, he delivers a mix spanning from jazz and spoken word to hip-hop, soul and downtempo funk.
“I’m always listening to an ever expanding range of music that excludes no genre. Everything has some hot shit in it! Listening to records is how I travel the world without leaving LA. I’m inspired by all aspects of a record – artwork, song titles, photos, song lengths, instruments played, names of people, the year, the label, the country of origin, and of course the sound.”
“One record can just have a single note in a small part of a song that peaks my interest. With the records I chose to play. I just wanted to show how my brain can go from one style to the next and how cool soundinh shit is like candy for my ears. When you listen to the production I did on my latest album Little Dominiques Nosebleed you can hear how much different types of shit I enjoy.”
