Sorry for my absence and neglect ... but I'm back - and with some serious sounds!
I'm in my hometown of Miami for the next couple of weeks diggin in the crates hard with my boy (and South Florida's hottest record collector) Mr. Brown aka Rankin' Brown. We've hit some serious gold mines out here and bought a few collections, so of course I'll be posting some of the heat we've managed to dig up.
But before that ...
I've posted a promo mix for my Soul Shakedown Party, which if u don't know is a monthly I started in Brooklyn, dedicated to the funkiest vintage roots, culture, rocksteady, and whatever we're feelin at the time, reggae music. The Party features the Cool & Deadly Soundsystem, which is comprised of myself Prince Bam (PQ) and longtime BK veteran toaster, Squintee (of the mighty Macintosh Hi Powered soundsystem of the 80's) and a slew of special guests.
It's a great time ... and a perfect party for the summer heat. The next date will be Saturday May 24th in Prospect heights at SODA Bar (629 Vanderbilt Ave) from 11 - 3am. Be there!
Enjoy these very large chunes!
