Imagine climbing inside of the score playing inside of Dave Chappelle’s head. Which of your favorite songs do you think he has curated … making him bob … creating that vibe? Well, you no longer have to wonder.
His tour accompanist, DJ Trauma who has been making the comedian’s audiences crazy with sets that includes everyone from Stevie Wonder to SZA to Chris Brown and Missy Elliot, has dropped his latest mix to help folk get through their quarantine blahs with some cool R&B.
This latest episode, Trauma marries his musical aesthetic with that of DJ Iesha Irene with their new collab entitled, “Electric Vibration.” Well, what makes this electric? It is the energetic thread that aurally streams through each carefully curated selection.
Or it could just be the energy between the two mix-masters? Well, Iesha Irene gives you a glimpse into what inspired the title of this playlist.
“When I think of Electric Vibration, I think of it being a combination of dope music and some hidden gems—B sides, that’s my thing. I love B Sides.” DJ Iesha Irene shares, “It’s good music to ride to. Music that’s wavy, music that makes you wanna turn the volume up.”
She continues, “I wanted Electric Vibration to be a discovery of new R&B music and some B-Sides that people might not have heard before. I’m really big on playing B-Sides, too. There are so many great artists/songs out right now and we wanted to present in a way that was fly.”
Sharing his platform and sharing in the art of playlisting is why Trauma is so successful.
