Final Diggin' Session
Sunday, 12/5/10 marked the final Diggin' Sunday Session.
Diggin' Sunday was the third Sunday chill spot @ Tribal Cafe in Historic Filipinotown, LA, CA for 4 years. For more information www.digginsunday.org
Honored to be apart of the selektor/dj line up - De La came with her final set that included Kalapana, Kui Lee, Sondheim & Bernstein, George Benson and Stevie Wonder.
She was also honored to be a part of the final round robin.
De La has always been a lover of music. After years of mix tapes in the solitary of her room she was encouraged to join the Rap & R&B department on her college campus by her dear friend the L.A.D. Regularly holdin'down a slow jams show she was often playing 'old school' jams before they were in vogue and blastin' all over the airwaves. De La went on to serve as the Rap & R&B Department Chair and Slow Jam DJ and Host on KUPS 90.7 fm in Tacoma, WA from 'Fall '95 til Spring of '96.
After she graduated, her love of music continued, but the means just weren't there - until Aesthetic Fish and Joel Quiz came along. Through Diggin' Sunday - De La, continued her ever-growing collection of music sharing ecclectic lounge, soul, soundtrack and island flavored sets first as a resident dj/selektah at Diggin' Sundays and then at EWP Next Generation Community Nights. De La Cruz has also DJ'd for Art Openings, Chinatown Chinese New Year Celebrations, and Dyke March.
More confident as a mellow selektor, De La enjoys mashing up island grooves, musical theater tracks and r&b sounds.
With the final Diggin' Sunday, De La is happy to continue playlistin' in the comfort of her home and for the occasional special event.
Well, at least for now.
