Live Mixtape at Ace Hotel NYC 2/4

prestige-ace-hotel-feb-4th
From the Ace Hotel NYC site:

“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.”
