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.

DJ Center - Everything In Time Remixed

It’s here! After previewing select remixes for the last couple of months, I’m happy to announce that ‘EVERYTHING IN TIME REMIXED’ has officially arrived (and with some good words to compliment)!

The album features choice selections from my debut record, re-imagined by a crew of some of my favorite producers-
DJ Spinna, Waajeed, J.Rawls, DJ OBaH, Captain Planet and Applejac, amongst others.

iTunes featured the album on the front of their R&B/Soul picks the day it dropped (thanks!). Check it out and let me know what you think of the different versions.  Plenty on there for you to enjoy.
