Every week in the high desert of New Mexico I DJ at a raw and large space called Taos Mesa Brewing. It sits just on the south end of a vast mesa which is home to the Earthships, as well as the beautiful Rio Grande Gorge and many mesa dwellers living a simple and free life in various structures, buses, and other structures that fit their needs and desires. Its a wild place and I am free to play what I want to hear and share. In this case, on this day, as the unusually sunny winter warmth comes and goes, I was inside of the Earthship Ampitheater, outside amid sun, beer, food, friends, and a need to share some soulful sounds influenced by dj culture, my youth around NYC, and record digging with this high and dry desert community. Bang on.

DALI ‘The Sound’
Dali is a new international collaboration between vocalist Lisa Preston(Wellington, NZ) and beatmaker Lil’dave (Philadelphia, US). They’ve just dropped an EP on Record Breakin.
Lisa Preston (aka LP) hails from New Zealand and is part of the extended Record Breakin’ family, through her collaborations with Sir Froderick and Dotmatic. She first came to the attention of Record Breakin through her collaboration with UK producer K15 and the release of their ep “A New Path”.
Known for her lush harmonies and love of layers, she has joined forces with producers from New Zealand and abroad to create a variety of timeless blends, each one laced with her unique style of soul. She has worked with producers K15, Jellphonic, Bluevibe Studio, Cy Tru, Weedy (40 Winks) , Onur Engin, Lord Jackson, Wehkah, Nigel One & Indigo Pyramid, ClassicBeatz, Benny Tones, Dotmatic, Sir Froderick and Paddy Fred, and has featured on tracks released through much respected labels Record Breakin’ Philadelphia, Wonderful Noise Japan, Tokyo Dawn Germany, 4Lux Netherlands, BBE UK and Laidback Belgium.
Lil’dave is a Philadelphia-based audio tastemaker who has made a name for himself by exposing people to soulful music in all it’s forms. As a DJ, he can easily whip the most mainstream crowd into a frenzy, but he is at his best when he digs deep into his crates for funky grooves, broken boogie, and thumping bass.
When it comes to making music, lil’dave’s productions draw from his hiphop roots, as well as his love of house, afrobeat, uk garage, salsa, jazz, synthesizers, and soul. He has released music as lil’dave, Illvibe Collective, and under his electronic alias, Osage, for record labels such as Record Breakin’ Music, Soulspazm, BBE Records, Young Robots, Bastard Jazz, Luvbug, Exadoria and Swedish Brandy.
In his relationship with the Record Breakin’ Music label he wears many hats, such as recording artist, remixer, artist development advisor, and graphic designer. He has worked with and remixed a diverse range of artists such as Selah Sue, J Cole, RJD2’s Icebird project, Lady Alma Ryat, Apt One, Joy Jones, Captain Planet, John Robinson, Foremost Poets, Laura Mvula, and more.
Turn It Up is a feature on Base FM where we showcase a new track from Aotearoa every week. Tune in weekdays at 10am and 4pm to hear this weeks top local pick.
