Episode 9: DJ Mr. Wriff

DJ Mr. Wriff guides us through the trippier reaches of the jazz spectrum, focusing on the pivotal late ‘60s through the ‘80s — when synthesized waveforms, drum machines and effects pedals transformed straight-ahead sounds into something otherworldly. From the dusty crates of swap meets and flea markets throughout the Americas, Africa and Asia, DJ Mr. Wriff mines forgotten gems, jogs our nostalgia with well-known outfits of the era, and tops it off with a sampling of the contemporary acts that seminal ‘60s psych-jazz inspired.
