I got schooled not only on Angelique Kidjo but also on the Talking Heads’ 1980 album “Remain in Light”. Angelique said that when she moved to Paris in the ’80s and heard the Talking Heads album for the first time (PS her stories of parties in Paris at this time is great), she was amazed at how the sound reminded her of music from her West African roots. She describes how the album has an undeniable beat that mimics west African music. It turns out she was right.

A Playlist for Your Revolution

In January, a community based pop-up art show took over a warehouse space in the downtown Los Angeles area bringing together some of the most talented artists, musicians, and activists working for us today.  The themes of the show were based around topics of "Justice as a Human Right", "Together We Rise", "No Human Is Illegal and No Human Should Feel Unsafe", "Love, Peace and Empathy", "Manifesting Solutions", and "This Moment in History."    With powerful exhibits and moving panels, this was a positive and humbling event that lead those who participated to question their part in today's call to action.

I was lucky enough to DJ at this event and put together a playlist of some of the songs I played.

International Hip Hop: Loyle Carner, Tom Misch and Jorja Smith

Can we talk about Loyle Carner? Carner debuted internationally in January 2017 with the drop of Yesterday's Gone which is AMAZING. His unique voice paired with the hip hop yet funk-feel cadence of tracks carry something to get behind. Check him out with fellow Londoner Tom Misch on the track Water Baby, released 2018. 

We're also super excited about English singer-songwriter Jorja Smith, who'll be in CA for Coachella this year and is touring in April with Tom Misch. Find her on Spotify, her sound is soulful and reminiscent of Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys and your gal Amy Winehouse.

In September we were honored to be a part of the Diamond and Pearl Gala in which a ton of money was raised to help cancer patients and their families.  

"The after party was a high success because of the DJ Lady Sinclair! Our guests grooved to the music all night long and we look forward to hiring Haute Mobile Disco again soon." Kimberly DuBois - G-Force Productions, the Diamond & Pearls Ball -
