Hunnypot Live #260


Unfortunately there is no Live artist performance audio for Rocky Business or Lil Brown Kid. :(

For our 260th Hunnypot Radio show, we packed the house as usual with one of our most star studded line-up of guest DJs and musicians alike. But before we get to our special guests Hot Tub Johnnie got us movin’ and groovin’ with his set featuring new favorites from Steve PoltzChela, Bite The BuffaloFIDLARShakka and much much more.

Following Hot Tub Johnnie, we jumped right into our first special guest DJ set and interview with Grammy Award winning producer and mixing engineer, Jack Joseph Puig. JJP is one of the most sought after producers and engineers in the entire business. Jack sat down for an exclusive one on one interview with Hot Tub Johnnie. He touched on many of his past experiences working in the studio with Courtney LoveThe Goo Go Dolls and gave incredible insight to his creative process. Jack spoke about the creation of his widely used Waves Audio Plug-ins that have truly changed the way audio is recorded. JJP also came prepared with a set list of some of his favorite songs that he has worked on over his long successful career. His favorites include HUGE hits like "Iris" by The Goo Goo Dolls, "You Get What You Give" by New Radicals, "Soak Up The Sun" by Sheryl Crow, "Glamorous" by Fergie and many many more.

Directly following JJP, Hot Tub welcomed electronic music pioneer Thomas Dolby to sit don't for a very special interview and audio retrospective. Dolby was in town to promote his directorial film debut, The Invisible Lighthouse which had recently won 2 awards at this year's DIY Film Fest. Thomas spoke about the film and also lead us on a journey through his career, as we played some of his top hits including "She Blinded me With Science", "I Scare Myself", "Spice Train" and "Europa and the Pirate Twins". It was an exceptional interview and retrospective as Thomas completely opened up and gave us great insight into his past accomplishments and what we can expect to hear and or see in the future.

After our special guest interviews, LA based indie, rap, punk band Rocky Business took to the stage and performed a killer set of high energy tunes. They had The Central rocking out hard as they played new tracks and their 2011 single "Heath Ledger" which was the highlight of the night.

Following up Rocky Business, was LA based electronic producer/artist, Lil Brown Kid. LBK showed his diverse talent as he played acoustic guitar over dreamy electronic based production and layered them with his chilled out vocal melodies. LBK is the complete package - a DJ, producer, singer and songwriter. Be sure to stay up-to-date with all LBK's latest happenings as Lil Brown Kid prepares to release his self-titled debut album.

Last but certainly not least was our final special guest of the night, none other than iconic French DJ/Producer, Joachim Garraud. Hot Tub Johnnie sat down with Joachim for a brief interview as they spoke about his latest projects, the Space Invaders and how he is enjoying living in the US. Usually performing for as many as 50k in Paris on a nightly basis, Joachim gave the intimate Central crowd one of his classic DJ performances which was so intense it garnered one of the very first Hunnypot encores!

All in all, it was another amazing show put together by the incredible Hunnypot Unlimited team. Huge thanks to everyone that came out to support, everyone that performed, and both the The Central SAPC and Hunnypot crews. We couldn’t make it all happen without each and every one of you.  03/11/2013

Joachim Garraud


World renowned French DJ/Producer, Joachim Garraud will be joining us for a very special interview/DJ set to close out the night. After having perfectionned his piano and percussions for seven years at the conservatory, he decided to move toward electronic music. Along with Laurent Garnier, he started as a DJ at the Boy, the Parisian club that first initiated the discovery of the techno phenomenon in France. He then successfully tried some music production with Maxximum radio station, number one national 100% dance radio station (CTL group). Becoming the pioneer of numerical music, he created his own recording studio in the middle of Paris, which allowed him to remix, compose or produce artists such as David Guetta, Jean-Michel Jarre, Paul Johnson, Deep Dish, David Bowie, OMD, Kylie Minogue, Mylène Farmer, Cassius, Ceronne, Moby, Robbie Rivera… and many more. Joachim developed a new concept, blending Deejaying and musical improvisation, thus giving a true concert, a unique live performance which soon gave him the opportunity to perform all over the World.
