MOM (Motown On Mondays) has been running 4 years strong in San Francisco and was founded by DJs Gordo Cabeza & Timoteo Gigante. Over the past few years MOM has become a hometown favorite amongst Bay Area party goers. Every Monday hundreds of soul thirsty, dance ready folks from all industries converge on MOM’s dance floor to absorb and reflect the love that some the best DJs on the west coast and beyond have to offer.
A couple years ago Gordo and Timo had decided to spread the wings of MOM DJs & Events and bring the magic of Motown to other cities. The first cities in line were Honolulu and Los Angeles… more recently MOM has branched out to Austin, New York, Oakland, and Denver.
Since December of 2011, Every Monday in LA has been different with a fresh weekly dance party that showcases some of the most classic soul tunes, forgotten gems, remixes and related off-shoots/inspirations from the Motown catalog. Now over 1 Year old, MOM LA has become an LA favorite, while receiving write-ups from LA Weekly, being listed in the “Top 10 Club Nights For People Who Don’t Like Clubs”, as well as getting write-ups and features from various websites & blogs including Fusicology! This once, best-kept secret, is now becoming the talk of the town!
Over nearly the past 2 years, MOM LA has curated a number of special edition nights including an annual J Dilla tribute during Dilla month, Stax vs Motown all-vinyl nights, a Root Down Does Motown edition, 3 different Coast 2 Coast editions with special guest DJ Spinna, Hip-Hop editions, Chicago Soul vs Motown editions, an annual Michael Jackson B-Day edition, a Stevie Wonder B-Day edition, and a James Brown vs Motown Edition. MOM LA has had the honor house special guests such as: J.Rocc of The Beat Junkies, Lord Finesse, Maseo (De La Soul), Large Professor, Maker (Chicago), Boogie Blind (X-Ecutioners / NY), DJ Rhettmatic, C-Minus, Jeremy Sole (KCRW / theLift / Afro Funke), Ohmega Watts, Pickster One, House Shoes, Supreme La Rock, Chicken George, Inka One, Wonway, Tricky T, Pirumov (Moscow), DJ Mahf, DJ Sarasa, Manuvers, O-Dub, DJ Sun, Doc Delay (NY), Mike Murda, The Whooligan, DJ Low Key, Mr. Len, Eric Coleman (Mochilla), Bennet, Jesse De La Pena (Chicago), P-Nyce, Chorizo Funk, DJ A1 (Erykah Badu), The Root Down Soundsystem, Gazoo, DJ Bonds, Wyatt Case, Inkfat, Small Change (NY), Platurn, E Da Boss, Impala Sound Champions, Ghettoblaster DJs, B.Sears (Austin, TX), Rev Shines (Quannum), DJ Destroyer, Danny Holloway, Sean-O, DJ Evo (Vancouver), Kid Cut Up, Byze One, Ta’Raach, and many others. More special treats await as the night continues to grow!

Here are some pictures from the first MOM LA that featured DJ SPINNA:
Our good friends at Backside Burbank hosted Soul Assassins Radio w/ special guests R Mean, Audio Push, Krondon, & Murs. Many supporters showed up and participated in the live taping of the show. Acrylick also took part, and sponsored the night by giving away Acrylick prizes to the audience.
If you have never tuned into Soul Assassins radio, you should! Every Thursday from 7pm-9pm you can check out the live recording of Soul Assassins radio at Backside, Burbank. You get the chance to watch your favorite hip hop artists talk about their latest projects and their next move, and possibly even catch them freestyle! Artists like Alchemist, Planet Asia, & Xzibit (only to name a few) have been featured guests on the show. It’s free to the public, so no need to worry about a cover charge. Don’t miss out, DJ Muggs, Mr. Choc, Vick One, & Ern Dog host Soul Assassins Radio with special guests every week. The show airs Mondays from 10pm-12pm on Shade45 SiriusXM satellite radio. Don’t sleep!

Every Monday we collect tracks that we have been diggin’ throughout the week! We find the latest tracks, so we can bring you what is fresh RIGHT NOW! We hope you enjoy our selections hand-picked for this week!
MNEK x Disclosure – “White Noise (XY Constant Remix)”
Disclosure has been making a lot of noise this year and XY makes this remix shine…
Flight Facilities – “Stand Still (feat. Micky Green)”
It has been really difficult to find this track, and there has been a lot of teasing around these parts. Nice to finally hear the full version! Don’t forget the name is Micky, not Mickey!
Blood Orange – “You’re Not Good Enough”
Blood Orange! This album “Cupid Deluxe” has something for every type of flavor you would ever need, with a really European sounding touch…
Sarah Winters – “Swimming Pools (Kendrick Lamar cover)”
Sarah Winters has been covering songs that an artist of her style wouldn’t usually touch, which makes her oh, so good…Keep an ear out for an entire album full of odd covers…
Flume & Chet Faker – “This Song Is Not About A Girl”
This new Flume and Chet Faker project is just too good to keep to ourselves.
PEACE & MUSIC
