Larceny Dub

Universal Cave has some more summer heat on deck: The Beat Broker's "Satin Kimono" is dropping on June 27th. "Larceny Dub" will give you a taste of the vibe: it soars to new heights of AOR bliss, featuring an extensive re-working of a record that was passed along to The Beat Broker by an ex-Deadhead neighbor.

Hooked Returns for Philly Pride

Special Pride Edition

JUNE 11th, 2016
Michael The Lion (Soul Clap, Razor-N-Tape)
f/ Amy Douglas (Live!)
Shawn Ryan (Superprince, Universal Cave, Razor-N-Tape)
DEL (5 Magazine, Do You Wanna Boogie)
Franky Bradley's
13th and Chancellor, Philadelphia

I'm very excited to once again return to Franky Bradley's for #Hooked - Philly's soiree for the disco classics and the music they inspired. This is one of my favorite parties the world over, and it's gonna be smack-dab in the middle of Pride weekend in the Gayborhood. Shawn Ryan and Del will be alongside on the wheels as we bring you the heat!

But I'm doubly excited because Amy Douglas will be coming down from Boston to join me and sing our Soul Clap Records hit Funk Train. Plus we will be debuting "Get It On," a tune from my upcoming vinyl EP which will be out this fall. This is the first live performance at Hooked and the first live performance of either of these songs anywhere!

If you haven't heard Funk Train yet, here's the legendary Francois K (Prelude Records, Studio 54, Paradise Garage) dropping it in one of his Deep Space sets (@ 28:10):

Lift You Up Draw You Out

Elvin Tibideaux focusing on a heavy Vince Montana breakdown, with two variations on the edit:
Heavy Vibes Mix:Breakdown of a tune stretched out, sped up, reinforced, and some performance effects for a dancefloor. 
Heaviest Vibes Mix:All of the above except w/o all the special FX, probably best for DJs with an isolator or folks who like to mess w/ the EQs a lot like myself.
