PLAYGROUND PREVIEW 2012
Tonight well hear a live set and speak with JACARANDA about the annual FREE Portland event he produces called "Playground" in Cathedral Park coming up this Sunday 9.9.2012
Founded in 2007, Playground has been an annual family-friendly tradition since. The concept is simple: A day in the sun under the St. John's Bridge with a lineup of musicians and DJs to provide a soundtrack for celebration, dancing and revelry. Playground is free, open to the public, and community-supported. A place for bare feet, smiling faces, frisbees, picnics, dancing, hula hoops, new friends, old friends, and community.
Jacaranda believes less is more, that quality trumps quantity, and subtlety is underrated. Jacaranda's beats are sunshine-infused, joy-drop beauty blossoms. He's holding it down for the analog lovers and still spins his sets with fresh pressed vinyl on 2 Technics turntables. Spanning genres of Downtempo, Trip-Hop, Balearic, Nu-Disco, and Deep Heady House Music - he weaves a seamless tapestry of eclectic sounds that is sure to get your head nodding.
