The turntables in KCRW’s Master Control studio were treated to a work out that I haven’t seen in quite some time this past Wednesday.
Now, truth be told, these tables are put to work each and every night by our DJs – myself included – but not the way DJ Bitman used them in his super exciting guest DJ set. If I wasn’t there to witness it live during the show, I’d swear he had 8 hands or a couple people helping him.
His mix is non stop. We also bookended it with short and sweet conversations about his roots in Chile and a free show happening this Sunday, September 9 at Macarthur Park’s Levitt Pavillion by Ritmo Machine (his project with percussionist Eric Bobo). He’ll also be spinning at Los Globos tonight.
If you missed it or want to check it out once again, check the archive.
