May is Asian American and Pacific Islander History month, and it?s come along with a rise in anti-Asian American violence, and some grim news about the visibility of Asians in the U.S. So being a proud Asian American, I wanted to showcase music by the AAPI community for this session of Bridging the Gap.

Set List:

Nick Yee’s passion for music developed at an early age, as he collected jazz and rock records pulled from dusty locations while growing up in both southern California and Honolulu. In college he started DJ-ing around town, playing long acid jazz and bossa nova sets at various lounges under the name dj mr.nick. He started to incorporate down tempo and electronic music into his sets as his popularity grew, eventually getting DJ residences at different Chinatown locations. To this day, he is a fixture in the Honolulu underground club scene, where his live sets are famous for being able to link musical and cultural boundaries, starting mellow and building the audience into a frenzy.
