Live at the Black Messiah Release Party

Center at Black Messiah Release

Enjoy DJ Center’s set, LIVE from D’angelo’s Black Messiah release party at Converse Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn, NY. Thrown by the people who made the album, for the people who love and support it.

Center’s set was ALL VINYL, 100% Soul. Nothing but D’angelo inspired tunes!

Shouts to Converse, Ben Kane, Russell Elevado, D Prosper, Natasha Diggs, Rashad Smith and everyone who was involved. Special thanks to the good people of Brooklyn who kept dancing and smiling til the lights came on.

Push the Fader Radio – Season of Versions September 2012

Push the Fader Radio - September 2012

More than a few people know I have a thing for cover versions. Both subscribers of the podcast and party goers alike know that I always like to keep a fresh batch of alternate versions in my bag.

After years of moving dance floors with songs that have become certified classics, new interpretations are breaths of fresh air. When a cover is so well done that it can stand up to the original, that’s a piece of gold.

This month’s Push the Fader Radio podcast highlights some of those versions. Songs that nod to the past, with an updated flavor. Perfect timing in my mind, as we make that transition from Summer to Fall and the season eases us in. In NYC it’s not cold yet, trails of the familiar summer are still there, but a little different. It’s almost like a seasonal cover or interpretation during this period.

Seasons change, mad things rearrange…

Push the Fader Radio – Brazil Special August 2012

PTF Radio Brasil Special August 2012

*All Brazilian Vinyl Mix | Disco É Cultura

Welcome to the August edition of Push the Fader Radio – Brazil Special.

Earlier this year I took a trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. While in town, I was no doubt searching for the perfect beat!

What I found was a sea of beautiful records and a tremendous amount of music to go through when I got back to NYC, endlessly combing the crates for those forgotten gems. And really, I’m still just at the beginning…

This mix is put together entirely from records purchased during that trip. On this podcast you’ll hear some of my favorite Brazilian artists, classics and versions in Soul, Jazz, Samba, MPB y more!

From Brazil to Brooklyn, with love.
