Finding early success as a songwriter, Caro's songs were covered by the likes of Julion Alvarez, Los Bohemios de Sinaloa, Los Nuevos Rebeldes, and Raul Hernandez to name a few. Backed by Del Recrods, who are at the forefront of the modern day regional Mexican scene with young stars like Gerardo Ortiz and Luis Coronel, Caro is poised to have a long, successful career.

Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange

Devonte "Dev" Hynes is a British singer, songwriter, producer, composer, and author who is known by the stage names Blood Orange and Lightspeed Champion, the latter taken from a comic strip Hynes drew as a teenager. Hynes got his start as a member of the short-lived England based band, Test Icicles. In high demand as a producer and songwriter, Hynes has written for artists such as Florence and the Machine, The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Sky Ferreira and Solange Knowles, among others.

Blood Orange's follow up to his 2011 debut, Coastal Groovesis the super collaborative production, Cupid Deluxe (Domino Recording Co, 2013). On Cupid Deluxe Hynes digs a little deeper to touch upon stories of change and people forgotten, but he still delivers those catchy pop textures we love from him. The album's 11 tracks take us from smooth backseat make-out music to funky influenced boom bap. There's a good reason why Hynes was hailed as the "20th coolest person in rock." Everyone could use a little Cupid Deluxe in their life.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode With The Budos Band

The Budos Band at Amoeba Hollywood

The Budos Band is a New York-based instrumental ensemble rooted in Afro-beat, soul jazz and funk music. After forming at a jam session hosted by Antibalas, the group released their self-titled debut on Daptone Records in 2005. Two years later, they followed this release up with The Budos Band II, a lengthy promotional tour, and a hiatus during which the many members contributed to other projects. In 2010, the band reunited once more for their third effort, aptly titled The Budos Band III.

2014 marked a slight shift in direction for the band, when their new album, Burnt Offering, saw the group dabbling in psychedelia and vintage soundtrack music while still staying true to their Afro-beat and funk foundations. The Budos Band will be appearing at several North America summer festivals this year, such as Sasquatch and Desert Daze.
