Calling all of my Boston, MA people! Tomorrow night we will be bringing a little slice of NYC to Beantown/ Cambridge at the famous Soulelujah party. This time, we are changing it up and will be dropping the deep funk/ disco vibes for the number one dance party in Boston. It’s an all forty five affair, so bring those dancing shoes and get ready to sweat until last call. These cats have been doing it STRONG since 2003, so you know it’s going to be a good time. If you are in the Boston area, we will be doing it disco this Saturday night March 25th, so come rock with us. Also on the bill is the ever reliable Claude Money and more, so if you like good, funky music, here’s your chance to sweat it out until the lights go on. See you on the dance floor.
Dropping a grip of 45 rpm gems tonight over at Donna Cocktail Club for their weekly Taco Tuesday night. I’ll be bringing some funk, soul, latin, boogie and reggae joints for the people. Good cocktails, great food, and good vibes in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. NYC stand up!

It’s always an honor to be asked to do a mix for people you respect. At the end of it, I am just a dude who loves music and followed his passion to make it a career. A career that is rewarding, but as my brothers and sisters in this game are well aware of, is a struggle. Success for me, has never been measured by monetary gain (but it helps when you get paid for doing what you love), and what I love so much about DJing are the relationships you make with people as you go along from city to city, the long lasting friendships, collaborations and of course the massive amount of music you learn about every day from people you work with, respect, and meet. I not only have the utmost respect for Junior and the Record Breakin’ crew, but am inspired at the wide spectrum of music they put out. On this particular mix, I wanted to step outside my box a bit and put together an hour of music I really dig, but don’t always get to spin out as much as I’d like. I recorded the mix in my Greenville Studios in Jersey City all live and in one take. Go to the link below to listen to it, and if you are feeling it, please pass it on to a friend. Thanks to Record Breakin’ for the opportunity to share my passion with the world, looking forward to hanging when I bring my records to Philadelphia to play live soon. Cheers.
On February 10th in the Heights of Jersey City, DJ Prestige will be performing an all 45 set before, during, and after a live performance from bandleader Pat Van Dyke with a full band in The Parlour of Fox and Crow. This intimate space has been a hot spot for a minute, and the pairing of the band and DJ has consistently sold out quick, so get there early! PVD always assembles a top notch bunch of musicians to accompany him for this gig, so it’s not to be missed. Prestige will be dropping a variety of funky 45s for your ears, so swing through!

“DJ Prestige is a fine purveyor of funk, soul, jazz, hip hop, reggae and other assorted funky treats. When not preserving and promoting quality vinyl records, he is working like a mad scientist to make the perfect cup of coffee at home. He brings his version of the live mix tape to the lobby of Ace Hotel, where funky jazz, deep funk, raw soul, classic hip hop, real reggae, disco tracks, and drum breaks of all kinds make you move and groove like the park jams back in the day. It’s all about the vibe.”

It’s been about six years since I have DJed in Asbury Park proper, so I’m excited to be asked to drop a guest set over at The Asbury’s Tuesday night all vinyl Revolutions party. I’ll be bringing an eclectic bag of funk, soul, reggae, African, Brazilian, latin and other assorted funky 45s to the tables that evening. Hope to see some familiar faces out. Cheers.
