Shades of Soul, 2.13 & 2.14: Summer Jams with Miles Tackett and DJ Soft Touch

Our last two Shades of Soul shows featured DJs who are down with L.A.’s long-running Funky Sole party in Echo Park. For 2.13, we had Miles Tackett, the night’s co-founder and long-time head of Breakestra. He’s got a new album out, The Fool Who Wonders and we talk about his career (and summer songs, natch). Then, for 2.14, we had DJ Soft Touch, a resident at Funky Sole and many other nights and quite possibly, the best dressed DJ in town.
