After taking a week off, SOUNDLIB is back this week and we’ve got a special treat: my good friend and one of my favorite DJ’s CHIKCEN GEORGE will be in town from Austin to get down on the decks with me.

CHICKEN GEORGE has made his name internationally through his signature “Jazztronica” style, an amalgamation of jazz, soul, eclectic bass and everything in between. His sets are known for their rare combination of superb technical skill and exceptional song selection.

Aside from being one of the premier tastemakers in the Austin music scene, CHICKEN GEORGE has released two records on the world-renowned, Stockholm-based label SWEDISH BRANDY. The two EPs, The Swed.u.s.h Connection 1 and 2, bring together tracks from Ocote Soul Sounds, J-Boogie’s Dubtronic Science, Lady Alma, and Hydroponic Sound System, alongside some of CHICKEN’s own production.

He has shared the stage with a wide range of talent including The Wailers, Pete Rock, Jazzanova, John Legend, Grandmaster Flash, Biz Markie, The Roots, Talib Kweli, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Afrika Bambaataa, Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra and Erykah Badu. So, we’re deeply honored to have him join us at SOUNDLIB.

For more on CHICKEN GEORGE, check out this recent interview he did for AOL’s Spinner music blog.
