Ramadanman: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Apr 27 2011

U.K. producer Dave Jones' many aliases have marked major evolutions in bass-heavy electronic music. As Zed Bias he added a sophisticated twist to late-'90s garage tracks, while his Maddslinky and Phuturistix productions married rich jazz and vocal riffs with taut, technical beats. His 2010 album, Make a Change, was heaped with acclaim for uniting myriad underground dance genres with stylish songwriting. No doubt he has influenced relative newcomer David Kennedy, whose Ramadanman and Pearson Sound projects have shown equal disregard for genre conventions but similar creative precision. Whether he's making funky house, dubstep, or techno, Kennedy seems to find an arresting, irresistible formula.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
