Located in the heart of Space City, 90.1 KPFT a small independent fm radio station gave 3 young South Asians a chance to share their music and culture on the airwaves with a broadcast unlike any of those before them. In the summer of 2002 Deepi Sidhu, Dj Alx and Yogi-G formulated one of the longest running fusion/world music broadcasts that explored traditional folk music such as Bhangra to genre-bending styles such as Glitch-hop and Dubstep.
Hosted by Dj Alx (MahaBeatz, Original Masala Crew, Karma DJs) and Yogi-G (Maha Beatz, Masala Crew, Gruv tunes), the duo has more than 20 years of individual experience behind the turntables. They have opened for such acts as Run DMC’s Jam Master Jay, Brooklyn Shanti, Apache Indian, Bass nectar, Karsh Kale ,Nickodemus, MidiVal Punditz, and UK’s own DJ Kayper.
In 2005, the collective hosted their own Generasian Parties, christened Turntablas on the Bayou. Inspired by Nicodemus’s Turntables on the Hudson,these unique parties included a live table player while the djs spun everything from Biggie to Bombay Dub Orchestra. Featured guests djs included a roster of Pioneer World Musicians including: Janaka Selecta, Nickodemus, Zeb, The 1Shanti, Karsh Kale, Dj Rekha and Navdeep.
Now more than a decade in, Generasian Radio has expanded its reach to podcasting. The show has interviewed a host of celebrities and musicians including Cheb-I-Sabbah, Zakir Hussain, Kal Penn, Russell Peters, Dat Phan, Karmacy, Bohemia, and RDB. Giving seasoned musicians and bedroom producers the opportunity to share their tunes, Generasian Radio is a show like no other.
