The Mixcloud crew were out in L.A. last month, so whilst they were in town we teamed up with our extended U.K. family for an epic all-day DJ jam. The Mixcloud in L.A. party took place on Saturday 25th May down at the DV Shop (6611 Sunset Blvd) with great music, plenty of drinks, and classic Cali good-vibes. On the turntables we had DV crew residents, including Chily T, Cee Brown, and Cazal Organism, plus friends from Soulection, Team Supreme, The Melt, Soul Circle Radio and more, all serenading Sunset Boulevard with the dopest of DJ sets.
The event was live streamed via DVTV, and, over the next few weeks we will be sharing the various recordings alongside some exclusive Q&As with those who took part. To kick things off we have Mixcloud in LA #01 from LA beats staple Sweatson Klank (a.k.a. Take.)
I am .. Sweatson Klank, formerly known as Take, from Los Angeles.
I be .. a Producer, DJ, and Music Supervisor. Current projects include my latest release on Project Mooncircle called “You, me, Temporary,” the upcoming launch of my label, a tour of Japan in August, and a EU/UK tour in September/ October.
First mixtape I made was .. in ’97. It was a hip-hop mixtape on an actual cassette…this was back when owning a CD burner was baller! Back then I just called myself DJ TOM.
The most Delicious record I own is .. probably some of my rare Italian library music LPs by Pierro Ulimiani. That’s a hard ass question though.
The hottest beatmaker or DJ in L.A. right now is .. just too many to name. L.A. is on fire right now!! I like to think I’m one of them.
