One of our favorite DJ’s, Afrodjiak has released a mixtape called Fock Love that you can listen to below. Afro is one of Philly’s Creative Ambassadors and one of the driving forces behind the Philadelphia Music Magazine. You’ve seen her at the Roots Picnic, and she curated the Key Studio Sessions we did with Reef The Lost Cauze, Ethel Cee and Peedi Crakk (watch them here). Afro has put together an incredible of mix of hip-hop and R&B. She’s one of the best DJ’s in the game and the mixtape proves why.

This weekend at WXPN studios, we recorded a collaborative Key Sessions video with the good folks at local blog Philadelphia Music Magazine. A trio led by versatile local bassist Rodney “Rah M Sungee” Miller – also featuring drummer Charlie “Chaz Patz” Patierno and keyboard player Elliot “El Smooth” Garland – played house band to MCs Ethel Cee and Reef the Lost Cauze. Later, State Property alum Peedi Crakk performed, backed by a DJ. Everyone involved was interviewed by PMM founders Jamica “DJ Afrodjiak” El and Damion Ward, and you can look for the resulting videos later this summer. For now, check out a slideshow of the day above, and check out Ethel Cee’s awesome video for “150″ below.
Earlier this month at the Roots Picnic, our friends from Philadelphia Music Magazine filmed some of the performances and interviews we did throughout the day. Below, watch the videos of Edward Sharpe’s performance and interview with WXPN’s Mike Vasilikos and The Dismemberment Plan’s performance and Bruce Warren’s interview with bassist Eric Axelson.
