QC radio show hosted by King Hippo @ Lumpen Radio 105.5 FM Chicago
Got the head of Tropical Diaspora Records , DJ Garrincha (Sao Paulo / Berlin), joining me on air this Wednesday for a talk and an all-vinyl set (deep latin, Brazilian and African of all styles). He’s a super interesting cat with heavy crates, please tune-in or stream live!
King Hippo curates music digitally from Chicago on his website, cuerators.com, and through live events and on the air for the University of Chicago’s WHPK 88.5 FM. He has organized and promoted such unique performances as Grammy-nominated Hiatus Kaiyote’s first concert in Chicago, and beat-making events where producers sampled a live jazz band and created original recordings in the moment. He has performed as a DJ in some of the city’s most respected venues such as Danny’s, Harbee Liquors and Tavern, Maria’s Packaged Goods, Rodan, the Silver Room, Sportsman’s Club and the Whistler.
