dp_ximeno2July 15, 2015

This month, we’re excited to be teaming up with Danny Holloway and DJ Destroyer to celebrate the release of their sixth Ximeno Records 7″ release: “I Want Your Love” by Norma White b/w “Ceiling Bud” by the Skatalites. To mark the occasion, the two Ximeno founders asked some of their heaviest record collector friends to spin all 45s sets!

Be sure to get there early and cop doubles of their new record in person before they sell out. Their last five releases have sold out and are now very hard to come across but if you get there early who knows what will be available…

Event: 6.17.15 | Herbie Hancock Tribute ft. Mark de Clive-Lowe

dp_herbie2_fix2Wednesday June 17, 2015

From Miles Davis to DJ Q-Bert, Herbie Hancock’s influence on popular music stretches far beyond any one genre. His live performance of “Rockit” on the 1983 Grammys is legendary. It not only brought Hip-Hop into living rooms across America it was the first to ever feature a DJ (Grand Mixer DXT). Borrowing elements from Funk, Soul, World, Electronic, and of course Jazz Herbie has composed some of the most innovative and most sampled music of the last four and a half decades.

What better way to pay tribute to this living legend then by bringing in Mark De Clive-Lowe…one of todays contemporary masters?

Staffed primarily by high school teenagers, these crews created a defining cultural activity for their generation and was the original proving ground for the mixmasters who’d go onto lead the turntablist movement.
