09.14.07 Asbury Park 45 Sessions Recap/ Live Set Download

uh huh

After a long, and I do mean long night of 45 madness, I’m happy to say the September ’07 edition of the 45 Sessions was a great success. The music was heavy, the crowd was large, and knowledge was dropped from all the DJs throughout the evening. If you weren’t there, the good people at Jam Now! have our sets archived for your listening pleasure. Now broadcasting over the internet can be a bit dodgy at best, but Jason from Jam Now! was on hand, and really hooked it up. These guys are professionals, and the sound quality for the night is really top notch. I listened several times as we were broadcasting live and it sounded great. As with any live event, nothing ever goes smoothly (there were a few skips, open fader back cues, and a metal 45 cone getting stuck to the turntables; wedged until we had to lube it with lube from the bowling machines to get it off), but the night was spot on. All the DJs delivered the heat as promised, and both of the guests had the crowd and the resident selectors rushing up to the tables to see just what records were being spun. You see, inevitably some of us have the same records, that just happens in the digging world. However, alll 8 of the DJs have their own signature sound, and that makes this night what it is. You know the record is hot when the rest of the DJs get up to see just what the hell the record is, and what we need to put on our want lists. Vincent the Soul Chef did just that. Dropping hot drum break after hot drum break plus a really great selection of sides, he had the dance floor moving, and heads nodding. DJ Save1 got Larry Grogan out of his seat (as well as all of us) more than once to see exactly he had brought down from Providence, RI. Then there was the 45 birthday cake (surprise, surprise) for Larry Grogan, Jack the Ripper’s blood exploding end of set, Connie T.’s tribute to Bobby Byrd, M.Fasis’s kick off set, my gentleman dapper Funk and Soul set with the suit on, and DJ Bluewater once again killing them with HEAVY drums and the sweetest, sweetest Soul. A big shout out to Bob Shannon from WCBS FM in New York City for MCing a little bit and for playing one record that had us all jumping up and down: “The Dog”, by Jimmy McCracklin. Don’t sleep on this guy, he has got 45 heat on the down low. He knows his stuff. He will be the MC for the November Sessions, which tentatively is November 30th. Mark your calander. Here’s my set list for the night and some photos. I need some serious sleep. More set lists as they roll in. Keep Diggin’!

  1. Just like my uncle would say: good times were had by all… Thank you all once more for the hospitality and for liking my records. Remember, I learned it watching you!!!I’ll have my recap and a new mix up tomorrow.

    Peace and blessings.

  2. you should of heard the dj at the wedding I was attending…Man I wish I was in Asbury on friday night….

  3. There’s some great tracks being played there. A mate of mine is trying to talk me into visiting the States sometime next year, we’ll have to try and stop by.

  4. Great job by all. Listened live for a little from out here in Cali…checking archived version right now. Thanks for getting this gigs up on the internet, man! I’ve been wondering what they sounded like.

  5. cool. glad you were feeling it. my set is buried after vincent’s and save1’s set on my archive link. i put my set in it’s entirety on the page for D/L. thanks again for checking it out. cheers-

  6. thanks for everyone’s concern. it wasn’t as bad as it looked and I only needed ten stitches.

  7. btw, on the JamNow site the sets are mis-labeled. The one marked as “Prestige” is Save1’s set. But I’m not complaining. Otherwise, they seem to be doing a good job.

  8. once again thanks for having me out their. all the dj’s really chill. Respect to Dj Prestige for the work he puts in and finding a great venue for a great soul night. Props to making it only 45’s. I will be planning on making my way out their again this winter, hopefully with my man Joe Ro.
