Hunnypot Live #249


Our Hunnypot Radio show hit it with a bang at The Central: SAPC in Santa Monica last week. We had some killer DJ sets, live acts and we kept the party going until the morning hours. Serious thank you’s to everyone who made it out, and to everyone who was a part of making it happen.

Setting the mood for us, Hot Tub Johnnie had some hot new tracks lined up that included Boy Girl Party, The James Douglas Show, The Hives, Muse, Broke For Free, The Tapeaters and many others. All very current artists that are more than worth checking out.

Our first guest DJ in the Hot Tub was Phil Gallo (Senior Correspondent, Billboard Magazine) who brought us back with some classic artists like The Monkees, The Rolling Stones, Dead Boys, Graham Parker and The Rumour, and some new artists like ZZ Ward, Lindi Ortega, The Record Company, and more. A commendable set Mr. Gallo, we tip our hats to you.

Our last guest DJ was Jonathan McHugh (J-3 Music) who brought an eclectic mix of tunes out for us. We heard from bands like Bajofondo Tango Club, Rodriguez, Citizen Cope, Sheryl Crow, Mind the Gap and more. All around great set and interview from McHugh, lots of rad stories from the frontlines of the music industry.

Lastly, but certainly not least, DJ Boom Shack closed out the DJ portion of the show with some hot new tunes from Eighty4fly, Icona Pop and more. As always, a perfect finish to our DJ portion of the show, Boom Shack.

Starting off our live portion of the show, all the way from Seattle, was a new Hunnypot favorite Eighty4Fly. He had the dance floor moving and grooving to his seriously catchy style of flow. His energy was off the chain, as he showcased new tracks off of his latest album COLORS. Our favorite single was definitely “Cool Kids” and we can’t wait to hear what this guy does next. All around stellar performance.

Up next we had the group, Qualmes, out of Pasadena, entertain us with their hip/hop swagger. Getting the crowd together, they brought an intimate feel to the room by encouraging us to get close and get down on the dance floor. Their style is unique, setting a very jazzy, mellow mood with the music and then hyping us up with their intense lyrical flow. Needless to say, we’re glad these guys are local cause we’ll be following them closely. You should too.

Unfortunately, Flume was unable to make it for his live performance, but we still got to hear a digital set of new tunes from him. Even though he wasn't physically with us, the set still had us hittin it hard on the dance floor to Flume's electronic energy. We look forward to the next time we get to see him in the flesh, cause we know he’ll bring the party.

Once again major thank you’s to everyone who came out to listen to some great tunes and see some amazing live acts, you are the reason we work hard to put this show on!  10/22/2012

COLORS is a smoke-­‐shrouded and swagger-­‐rich,19-­‐track project that is the most refined, catchy work yet from an artist already known for his irresistible crossover appeal. This is a record you can’t help but listen to, party to, drive to, smoke to. Loaded with stellar production from teen prodigy A Dot, like on the ultra-chill lead single "Kush High" and the mellow smoked out banger "Late Night" to name a few. Be sure to check out the current fly single "Cool Kid" which just got a stylized visual treatment to match the upbeat hip hop/indie pop vibe.



Pasadena based hip hop artist Qualmes, will be hitting the Hot Tub to perform songs off his dope new LP InternationalSouthernDopeTunes. The LP features a laid-back collection of jazzy/hip hop cuts perfect for cruising and elevating your pimp status. Be sure to download InternationalSouthernDopeTunes for FREE at Indy LiveMixtapes.
