New Mix Alert: The Beat Is Mine

With another monthly edition of Shake! Brooklyn with DJ Monk One and I approaching (March 17th at Friends and Lovers), I wanted to put together a mix of some cool records that I like to spin at the party. The party itself, is a safe space for people of all ethnicity, sex, and gender to come and enjoy a night of good music, dancing, and good vibes. In the spirit of David Mancuso and Larry Levan, and a nod to classic night clubs like The Roxy and Mudd Club, Monk One and I have been giving party goes and dancers a space to be themselves, to enjoy the music, make friends, and put whatever troubles this world is giving them out of their mind for six hours. We do it all on 45 RPM, and pay tribute to classic NYC dance sounds be it deep funk, proto-disco, disco, house, early rap, or any other records that held the groove to make people move. We also put in some of today’s hottest underground nu-disco, boogie, afro beat and more, keeping the tradition of these legendary NYC DJs that broke records for the masses. Not afraid to take chances, we want to expose audiences to the old and the new, helping them make it through their Saturday night via dancing until the wee hours of the am. We will be bringing this night to San Francisco later on this year, so Left Coast people take note. This mix was done all live and in one take, because when you do it live you don’t get a second chance. Check out the mix below:
