DJ Stylus and DJ Meistro of The Sol Power All-Stars kicked off The Vinyl District’s all vinyl monthly at Den Of Thieves with a night of deep, tropical wax. Get the set as a free download!
DJ Harvey takes the perfect disco funk jam, “Gotta Keep On Trying” by Tenderness, strips it down, and stretches it out to build the excitement and energy to epic proportions.
Yesterday Elvis Presley would have turned 80 years old. I coincidentally pulled this 1997 Sol Brothers 12″ single off the shelf, put it on the turntable, and reveled in its late-90s big beat brilliance.
Canny, Celina and Lucy were Golden. They covered Pulp.
“NY So Hi” is the lead single off of NYC DJ/producer Eli Escobar’s debut album.
Happy Halloween! Legendary late 60s teen garage rockers The Graveyard Five’s solitary single “The Graveyard Theme”/”The Marble Orchard” has a truly haunted atmosphere like nothing else from that or any other era.

Captain Planet is one of my favorite producers these days. On his latest single, “In the Gray,” he cooks up a viciously catchy reggae instrumental, but for me it Brit Lauren’s infectious vocals that make the tune.
Monster Rally is Cleveland native Ted Feighan; he produces sample-based tropical pop. Here’s “Orchids,” a track from his last album, Return to Paradise. I think he makes the best music to work to.
