Soul Sides – the audioblog version – turns 10 years old on 2/28.1 Frankly, I canâ€™t believe itâ€™s already been 10 years but here we are. I wonâ€™t wax rhapsodic about this anniversary for too long but letâ€™s just say that it was far more â€œsuccessfulâ€ (however one defines success) than I could have ever imagined and I am so very thankful for the opportunities itâ€™s created and how itâ€™s connected me to folks around the country and world.
I’m not going to make too big a deal of all this. We will have a local L.A. party in celebration at Devil’s Pie in Little Tokyo next Thursday. Thes One will be joining me and resident DJs Sean-O and Phatrick. But, I did think the anniversary was a good excuse to roll out the unofficial Soul Sides Vol. 3. I’m going to sneak-peak a few songs off of it tomorrow, during my Shades of Soul show which will be dedicated to some of my favorite songs that I’ve shared through the site these past 10.
I will have a limited number of CDs of Vol. 3 to give away next week, in person. I’ll also make it available through Mixcloud or something similar. I’m not selling it so this is my gift back to y’all. More info on that next week.
- Technically, Soul Sides existed prior to that by several years but as an audioblog, my first post was 2/28/04. ↩
