Old School, East Side, Watts-fried

"LA Love is just that. It's LA like the city, the way it takes all flavors and attitudes, stands them up and salutes them, then let's them mix and melt into each other like an ice cream sundae on a hot day at the beach.

It's love is for so many styles of music that are given respect, with echoes from distant countries dancing with LA homegrown, the indigenous of the indigenous! Old school, east side, Watts-fried fits like a glove into 21st century pop styles that lean on ancient rhythms.

LA Love is about the love between men and women that keeps our city shakin', about the love between the races that keeps our city from breakin', about the love between the generations that sanctifies our makin'.

The way we talk, the way we drive, the way we cook our food (mas caliente!) it's all here in this very special creation. Listen and remember how good it is to be alive, to be alive in Los Angeles!"
