DJ D-Mac is returning to the Den of Thieves this Saturday night with Eric Hilton. Gonna dust off the funky 45 box and spin some real vinyl!
Qdup returns with the 21st volume of the Fort Knox Recordings Monthly Funk The World Cloudcast. Free download!
A few folks have covered Junior Murvin and Lee “Scratch” Perry’s “Police and Thieves,” but as far as I know no one has done a jazz version until Zara McFarlane!
“Bizness” by the tUnE-yArDs gives me the excitement of hearing new sounds. One of the most amazing things about this music is that it’s largely made by just one person, Merrill Garbus.
See-I is one of my favorite DC Metro area bands. Always bringing a fun mix of reggae mixed up with contemporary party music vibes.
Digging through the mix archives, I unearthed and edited this early evening segment of a live set from summer 2012.
Here’s a holiday treat! Video artist &/OR [re]added the visuals to The Bird Peterson Holiday Spectacular, a Dilla-like production using music from vintage animated TV specials.
Dancing was nonstop from the first song to the last at Rebecca & Randolph’s wedding at the Capitol Hill Club.
DJ D-Mac & Associates are back with the rinkside beats every Thursday, December 5th thru February 27th, at the skating rink in the Sculpture Garden at the National Gallery of Art!
The guitar, horns and vocals on The Specials “Ghost Town” are distinctly ska but the song gets a spooky vibe with the background vocals, and those ghostly keys. Happy Halloween!
