ANTHONY VALADEZ (Plug Research, KCRW, LA) — anthonyvaladez.org
LA-native Anthony Valadez became a music fan the minute he heard the opening notes of “Theme from Mahogany” by Diana Ross on the radio in the family car.
The minute I heard that song and those strings I knew music was something I wanted to pursue. I wanted to share it, create it, document it and forever be a fan of it.”
He also worked at a local pool, saving money to buy turntables and, at night, would scan the FM dial for new music. It was then he discovered Michael Mixx’in Moor’s radio show on KCRW and became an instant fan of the station.
“There was nothing like it. It was a collage of sounds, speeches, soul and it was masterfully produced. I knew at the age of 14 I wanted to one day play records and create something different and new for LA on KCRW.”
In high school, he would skip 6th period and head over to local community college and do Guest DJ sets. Then, while studying Theatre Arts at Cal State Northridge, he convinced KCSN (a classical station at the time) to allow an Electronic/Hip-Hop/World Soul radio show on Monday nights which he hosted for several years. He later created and hosted Soundwaves on 90.7 KPFK during Saturday afternoons. A few years later, he finally landed a coveted spot at KCRW.
In addition to his Monday night (midnight — 3am PST) radio show, he is currently the resident DJ at First Fridays at The Natural History Museum. In addition, he can be found every week playing at Cana Rum Bar (DTLA), The Line Hotel (K Town), Zanzibar (Santa Monica), The Sayers Club (Hollywood) and Insert Coins (Las Vegas).
He has remixed songs by David Bowie, Ozomatli and Local Natives and released four studio albums of original material. His latest, In Search Of... was released on Plug Research in 2014.
In 2013, shortly after Istolethesoul Records released volume one of Around Sounds, Anthony became the first international DJ to support the Toronto-based label. He played a number of songs on the compilation and went on to include songs by Maylee Todd and Bird on his best-of-2013 playlist. He then collaborated with Bird on "Good Looking" and worked with The Precious Lo's on "Naive".
