Din Friendlies Defined – Son Ra
The thought process of this show began when discussing music with a fellow Taurean, she being a Disco Aficionado described all of the radio mixes were Den Friendlies. Her definition was that the songs were so common deep house heads had grown tired of listening to the same songs over and over; she wanted everyday listeners to challenge themselves and seek out new exciting music to groove to. I agreed with her halfheartedly but maintained that music is an instrument of life and people use it to get through the day, those common songs still had value because people needed them. I decided to name this series Din Friendlies playing off of the word “Din,” A loud continued noise that’s Friendly to the ears. This Series will contain Soul Music, Jazz Funk, Rock, Blues and Disco, with most having a theme to my first love: Hip Hop.
