First things first – Rest in peace Earl Simmons. This is one of those situations where what’s understood doesn’t need to be explained, so I’ll leave it at that.

We’ve had a lot of artists patiently waiting for us to spin their records, so that’s what this week’s mix is about. Last round of submissions was full of melodies – we kept it a bit more bar heavy this time around. Artists, you can hit us up whenever. In addition to these mixes, we have a weekly newsletter where we share your videos.

We’re also pretty active on Twitter & decent at Instagram as well. Always here for the conversation.

Speaking of which – Next week our show falls on 4/20…. What are you trying to hear?

We’re back next Tuesday at 10pm on 91.5FM in Boston & streaming right here.

If you missed our #24in24 episode, you can relive that here.

LFOD Radio 4.6.21 – #24in24 Anniversary

LFOD Radio 4.6.21 #24in24 Anniversary
#24in24 – 24 Songs in 24 Hours by 24 Artists

Tomorrow marks the four year anniversary of #24in24‘s release. The album itself was created on March 25, 2017, when we invited 24 of our favorite artists to record 24 songs in 24 hours at The Bridge Sound & Stage in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

If this is your first time hearing about the album or you’d like to revisit some of the standout tracks, press play on the mix below. We’ve also sprinkled in some commentary from the artists involved. It truly was an incredible day.

One thing we keep hearing from artists is that we’re overdue for another. What do you think? Let us know below or on Twitter/Instagram. We’re always here for the conversation.

LFOD Radio 3.30.21 – Nipsey Hussle Tribute

Nipsey Hussle LFOD Radio 3.30.21
RIP Nipsey Hussle 8/15/85 – 3/31/19

Not much to add that isn’t expressed in the mix… Nipsey Hussle was a one-of-one & an inspiration to millions. He shared his blueprint for success with us as he crossed goals off his bucket list with every release. From Slauson to the world, he dreamed big and lived his visions.

Every mixtape offered a new feel as he grew as an artist and person. And for what felt like forever, he kept telling us “Victory Lap coming soon”. In the meantime, we got Crenshaw, Mailbox Money, Slauson Boy 2… His mixtape catalogue is one of the strongest out.

He also introduced the Proud 2 Pay model, selling 1,000 copies of Crenshaw for $100 a piece and then 100 copies of Mailbox Money for $1,000. Or you could log on to DatPiff.com. Up to you.

When Victory Lap finally came, it truly felt like one. I’m just glad he was around to take it. Just over a year later, he was murdered outside his now-famous Marathon clothing store.

These are some of our favorites from his decade plus run of music, highlighting the different flavors he offered along the way.

DJ Manipulator #LFODMix (3.16.21)

LFOD Radio DJ Manipulator

It’s a pleasure to welcome DJ Manipulator to the stage: We first met at Nightworks a few years back where he was a resident DJ. Of course, his reputation preceded him. However, if you are not familiar, trust you’re about to be. And if you are, then you know what’s next.

This is maybe the most relaxing mix we’ve had yet – It’s mostly instrumental, with original production and some gems from the crates. Some of the records he pulled aren’t even in the database we report spins on to keep in compliance with the FCC… If you like what you hear, be sure to let him know. You can also catch him spinning on The Just Records Podcast & his newest album, Gram Jams III is out now on bandcamp.

DJ Manipulator is our fourth guest already this year – If you missed Candy Raine, DJ STIX, or Jeff 2Timez, you can run their mixes back right here along with quite a few others.

The Notorious B.I.G Tribute (3.9.21)

Rest in Peace to Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls, Frank White, Big Poppa… Not many have made such an impact on Hip-Hop in such a short amount of time. He was signed to Bad Boy in 1993 and murdered in 1997. While he was here, he rapped his ass off. A menacing figure on wax, he also showed his sense of humor and charisma that won him the love of so many.

There’s a lot of different ways you can go with a B.I.G. mix. We chose to focus on the MC tonight. Whether blazing solo or going toe to toe with the heavyweights of his era (and the next), there’s no question that you’re listening to one of the best to ever do it.

We’ve been on a roll with guest DJs this year – If you missed Candy Raine, DJ STIX, or Jeff 2Timez, you can run their mixes back right here along with quite a few others.

DJ Candy Raine #LFODMix (3.3.21)

LFOD Radio DJ Candy Raine 3.2.21

Now this mix is about to be different than anything you’ve heard on LFOD Radio before. We’re joined by DJ Candy Raine, who gets downright nasty for the full hour. Not only that, but she manages to include 50+ artists in the soiree.

We’ve known Candy since the early days, whether she was winning Hoop-Hop chips, DJing at The Workout, or making moves with Code Eclectic. A few years ago she moved to Atlanta, where she’s actively DJing and also a part of the CareFreeBlackGirl movement & The Playbook ATL Show. You can also catch her on Spark FM every Tuesday & Wednesday from 3-5pm. She does a lot! And we’ll be dropping an interview with more about that soon, but right now it’s time to press play on her latest mix.

We’ve been loving the guest DJ flow so far – already this year we’ve had DJ STIX & Jeff 2Timez, with another guest lined up for later this month. Anyone you’d like to hear? Let us know on Twitter/Instagram or drop a comment below.

And Artists! We’re spinning straight submissions next week, so hit us with some heat!!

We’re back next Tuesday at 10pm on 91.5FM in Boston & streaming right here.

DJ STIX #LFODMix (2.23.21)

LFOD Radio DJ STIX

Earlier this month, we asked ya’ll who your favorite DJ was and a whole lot of folks said DJ STIX… So being that LFOD is a platform of and for the people, we’re proud to present to you our newest #LFODMix featuring the man himself.

We’re gonna be doing these more and more frequently, so if there’s someone you want to hear either comment below or hit us on Twitter/Instagram.

Interview with The Record Co

Matt & Maria from The Record Co share their vision & update us on the new space!

The Record Co is a Boston-based community space for musicians, featuring four brand new recording studios, 15 rehearsal spaces, and all the bells and whistles you’d expect from such a location.

They were mid-renovation when COVID hit, so they made sure to include a top-notch HVAC system, as well. Each room has it’s own totally independent airflow. We talked more about safety and a LOT more about the music they’re ready to make in today’s interview.

These guys have a great mission, an exciting vision for the future, and they get things done! Definitely tap in when you can.

Long time listeners may recognize the name… Season VI of the LFOD Radio podcast was recorded at their Newbury St. location last year and we spoke at length with Jesse about their Beast compilation when that dropped in 2017.

And we are BACK. The COVID knocked me out of commission for a minute, but luckily not for too long. Here’s some of what’s been sent our way so far in February. What have you been jamming on?

If you missed our Best of January or Jeff 2Timez mix, would definitely recommend giving those a spin next. Some heat for sure.

We’re back next Tuesday at 10pm on 91.5FM in Boston & streaming right here. New time! Excited to reach some new listeners.
