This week’s episode of The Boulevard is action-packed, with several tunes that I played in Edmonton, Alberta this past weekend. Some new cuts, some older cuts — all to bring us into frequency.

I also spoke with Tec-troit Electronic Music Festival creator and Southwest Detroit native DJ Roach about his vision to unite under the groove during this weekend’s three-day festival.
