Special guest DJ House Shoes (Detroit / LA)
Detroit Hip-Hop’s Ambassador to the World. Michael “HouseShoes” Buchanan has been an integral part of the long burgeoning Motown resurgence. Ask the people coming out of Detroit and they will confirm all of this. Houseshoes, a resident DJ at the Hip-Hop staple St. Andrews Hall from 1994-2004, has had personal influence over (at least) a full generation of emcees, producers, and then-future-DJs. Read more….
Rich Medina (Jump N Funk) and Akalepse (Truth & Soul) are obsessed with records and playing them for people. When they DJ they bring you that raw, outside the Top 40, heavy, fun, sexy, soulful and honest music they are both known and respected for. These guys are avid record collectors, each with a heavyweight stash of over 20,000+ records, so of course you’re going to hear things you don’t know… that is the point. But not the whole point, they play classic tunes right next to obscurities, always pushing the listening audience a little in a sincere effort to break new records and reintroduce slept on tunes simultaneously. The party they do together is called PROPS, it is a soulful music lover’s paradise.
