Fans of vinyl and true school hip hop should be happy tonight in Copacabana. Vinyl United is bringing those two great tastes that taste great together to Fosfobox, featuring carioca hiphop dj legends Pachu, Saci, Lulinha, Saddam and special guest Bruno Vinelli.
In the upstairs Fosfobar, it's all about the Botafogo Social Club as Mike Frugaletti and I go back to back all night playing whatever we feel like. I'm still not quite sure what that will be but I do know it will be FUNKY!
Come out tonight and get the weekend started early!
LISTA AMIGA: R$20 até 1h e R$30 após

Daft Punk has never been ashamed to let you know their influences, such as on "Teachers" from their Homework Lp. As the whole world sat and listened to the streaming audio of the new album over the last few days, I was right there with them. The obvious influence of collaborators Moroder and Rodgers is definitely there but there's one guy who's influence stood out that may not have been as obvious; Herbie Hancock. Herbie is one of those rare artists that evolved with the times, from his early 60's Blue Note output to the electro/hip hop stylings of "Rockit" in the early 80's. But his 1978 album, Sunlight, contained one of the best fusions of jazz, funk and disco ever committed to wax. If you enjoyed the sexy disco beats and talk box-drenched vocals of the new Daft Punk Lp, who should definitely dig this track edited here, "I Thought It Was You". Listen and enjoy the free download! Shout out to Severino from Horse Meat Disco for reminding me of this gem!
Tomorrow night at Mekong in Leblon, The Rio Times presents an event the first of it's kind in Rio de Janeiro, Rio DJ MixUp. It will be an opportunity for all those in the nightlife community to come together, share a drink and make some connections. I'll be representing Botafogo Social Club and, along with Mary Byker, we'll be playing the tunes for the evening. Things get started at 7PM so come right down after work! There's no charge to hang out and Mekong will be running drink specials all night!

I've always been a huge fan of Massive Attack, including everything Tricky did with them. I have to say though, I haven't been as excited about a release of his since those days. The new album looks to be amazing and the new single is heavy! My remix takes from the track from it's mid 80 BPM trip hop origin into the land of "dark disco dub". Hope you enjoy it! And, of course, do yourself and the artist a favor and check out the original and the rest of the new album (when it drops)!
