You know we show love to our extended friends and family, and for those who don’t know, there is something super fantastic going on this Sunday in the City of Angels. On behalf of my peoples Eric Coleman and Brian Cross, I present to you a brief message from our Mochilla family…

If you are anywhere within driving distance of Los Angeles, you SINCERELY owe it to yourself to make the drive and share in this beautiful occasion this Sunday as we celebrate the life of Mr. James Dewitt Yancey.

Peep the details below…I’ll be there with Ms. Cecilia…SEE YOU THERE!!


So Timeless has begun and it has buried the Mochilla camp in details. Details like how can we accommodate such amazing musical talents in one go as Verocai, Mulatu and Axelrod. Damn, this is beyond our imaginations. By now Mulatu has come and conquered. Three hundred were turned away. If you are reading this and you were turned away, we’re truly sorry but we sold it out. A huge victory for music and culture in our fair city. If you were inside then you know whats really going on. An amazing night was had.

So onto the next.
Please please don’t sleep on Miguel Atwood-Ferguson + Carlos Niño’s “Suite for Ma Dukes” trust me when I tell you that you have not heard “anything quite like this”.

We have a blog specifically for the EP here: mochilla. com/suiteformadukes where we will be putting up parts for all you beatmakers to sink your drum machines into. The show is on February 22nd, we highly recommend getting pre-sale tickets by calling or visiting the Luckman Box Office (+1 323 343 6600) or by Ticketmaster because it most likely will sell out. There will also be several heavy hitters on board to celebrate the music of the sadly missed James Yancey.

Okay back to the details… Happy Valentines and Black History to the future.



“Timeless” is an homage to the arranger/composers that have influenced hip-hop
in the most literal and profound ways. Hear what happens when these two worlds come together.
