Us & Us: “Digging Is Therapy…”
A Motion Mixtape for Phuture Frequency, transmitting from Mount Vernon, New York, USA.
Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3.

It never fails: I always end up spending more time with my vinyl once Record Store Day comes and goes. This all-vinyl mix includes some old favorites as well as new additions to the collection. The inclusion of Portishead was unexpectedly timely given their recent Glastonbury performance. I finally get a chance to represent for one of my favorite Talking Heads album cuts, plus the Theo Parrish/Tony Allen collaboration is a current favorite with me right now. In light of the recent passing of soul singer Darondo, I included Tall Black Guy’s re-edit of one of his songs. And Dilla’s shown some love through a Raymond Scott sample origin and a remix of “Waves” from the Donuts album. Not sure who was behind that, but respect is due: it’s b eautiful.

DJ ZAZ Brown – IntroDeucing

I am (DJ) ZAZ Brown. I’m from Washington, D.C. U.S.A. I’m a Renaissance Man with an affinity for dusty vinyl and digital simplicity. My Pops was a serious music lover and it rubbed off. Now you all have to pay for that…

This mix here consists of a few things I found out on the Internets and a couple of cool grooves from a friend or two. If you like these tunes, there are a lot more where they came from. I mostly mix and mash music around the house and then ride out to it.

The Soulection camp has been in heavy rotation lately, with a strong camp of beatmakers and young rappers (Abjo, Waldo, Sango, Atu). Definitely keeping an eye on them. I dropped a gem by my man Dirdy Redzz from my side of town in there as well as rare grooves by Cut La Roc.

Lately, Soundcloud has been home for my ears, but I have an extensive reach in the crates saved up for future shows.

Thanks to PFRadio for giving me a platform to spin my records. Don’t expect the expected…

Act Now with Airplays No.34

As well as having two guest mixes, one Funk, Soul, Hip Hop and one Drum & Bass, I’ve also gone and done my first recipe ON AIR! I’ve written up the recipe below as I expect it’s not the easiest thing to follow.

Green Bean and Sweetcorn Thoran
A dry vegetable curry with coconut


Large handful of green beans
Tin of sweetcorn (Baked bean sized tin)
2 tbsp desiccated coconut
2 tbsp sunflower oil
1 tsp brown mustard seeds
2 tsp finely chopped ginger and garlic
1 tsp finely chopped green chilli
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp cumin powder
2 tsp coriander powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste


Heat a pan on a medium heat, add the oil and wait until the air above the oil starts to waiver. If you oil starts to smoke, turn off the heat and allow to cool.

Once the oil is at the right temperature add the mustard seeds; they should start to pop & crackle. If they don’t pop turn the temperature up slightly.

When they start to stop popping after about 20secs turn the temperature right down and add the ginger, garlic and chilli; stirring for 20secs to avoid burning.

Then add the turmeric and stir until the raw smell has gone. Then add a dash of water; around 2 tbsp and add the rest of the spices; stirring for around 20 secs.

Add the green beans and cook for around 4mins. You can turn the temperature up slightly at this point. When the beans are nearly done add the sweetcorn, coconut and salt to taste.

Serve with flat bread or rice and yoghurt.

Us & Us Episode 18

Us & Us: “The Sensitive Adventures Of Ebb And Flow…”
A Motion Podcast Episode for September 2011
Transmitting from Mount Vernon, New York, USA
Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3

I’ve been wanting to say something. Prior to the two episodes from me that popped up out of nowhere last year, I was absent for a year and some change, so I feel like I ought to

actually say something. At the same time, the music speak volumes on its own and is far more eloquent than I am.

Acts like Jonti, Sepalcure, Toro Y Moi, and When Saints Go Machine represent the current obsessions while the music of Arthur Russell remains a constant inspiration. Arthur’s

Landing represents lovely for Russell’s compositions. There’s some beat science from Andres and Sir Froderick as well as Bullion, who had a remix project marrying the work of

The Beach Boys with J Dilla’s b eats. Ultramarine put out their first new material in over thirteen years, which thrills me to death. And there are pieces from Phil Upchurch and Bill

Cosby that resonate strongly with me as of late. The glitchy sensitivity of Claro Intelecto and Auch, the wide-eyed fun of Saint Etienne remixing Pizzicato Five, the album cuts from

Funkadelic and The Crusaders that I’ve been wanting to play for you for months now…this is just me doing what I do. Grabbing some selections from the collection and trying to

connect some dots.

Thank you very much for joining me. Hope you enjoy the set…

Us & Us Episode 17

Us & Us: “Making Up For Lost Time…”
A Motion Podcast Episode for November 2011
Transmitting from Mount Vernon, New York, USA
Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3

On this episode, I had to dedicate some space to the words and music of the late Gil Scott-Heron. In addition, a Johnny Hammond cut is included to big up the production genius of the late Alphonzo “Fonce” Mizell, one-half of the Mizell brothers. Other than that, some past, present, and future side room flavors along with some pieces I’ve long since forgotten about and deserve to get some shine. Check the free verse from Antipop Consortium’s High Priest guest starring on the Diego Cortez track. New releases include some beat science from Lee Bannon and Katalyst, the Billie Holiday meets Bjork beauty of Amenta, and an ecstatic piece from Matthew Herbert’s latest album (the one that got PETA really, really upset). And if the thou ght of Sly Stone being homeless and living out of a van depresses you as much as it does me, perhaps you’ll appreciate my reaching back for the closer on his *Life* album with The Family Stone.

Us & Us Episode 16

Us & Us: “Styles Upon Styles…”
A Motion Podcast Episode for September 2011
Transmitting from Mount Vernon, New York, USA
Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3

It’s been almost a year since I last did a show for PFRadio, which is entirely too long to be away. A laundry list of talented people within the world of music have left this earth during my absence, so I figured I’d pay my respects a few at a time. For this show, eternal gratitude goes to Harry Whitaker, Eugene McDaniels, and Frank Foster. Other than that, just grabbing a few selections from the library and seeing what works. Strangely enough, I recorded this prior to the execution of Troy Davis in Georgia. The inclusion of Frank Foster’s “The Loud Minority” seems all too timely right about now.

This set goes out to anyone and everyone who has ever felt like music was all they had. Hope you enjoy this one…
