DJ Prestige x Ace Hotel NYC

NOV Lobby Nights 15The time goes so quick and November creeps up on you. This month, once again FleaMarket Funk is featured in the lobby of the Ace Hotel New York City every Friday in November. We will be bringing an arsenal of funky treats for your listening pleasure on these nights from 8pm until 2am. You see, the Ace is our home away from home and every time we visit, they encourage us to dig deeper and deeper. Sonaturally, we oblige. As we approach our sixth year at the Ace, we’ve come a long way from spinning 45s for Tanner Goods pop up and then for Q Tip’s residency in Liberty Hall. Fast forward and we’ve hosted special guests like Supreme La Rock, and seen everyone from the Chicago Bulls Joakim Noah to Skrillex nodding their heads to what we are laying down. However, the night isn’t possible without the crowds that come out on the regular when we play the Ace, and for that we want to say a huge thanks. For the residency, we did a live warm up mix that dropped last week, and for those who haven’t heard it yet, here is is again:

We’ve done quite a few mixes for our residencies over the years, which can be found here. Here are a few if you’ve missed them:

This month, the Ace has also curated some really talented DJs who will be spinning the rest of the week, so if you’re in the area the rest of the week, by all means stop in.

These events are FREE, so there’s no excuses, it doesn’t get better than FREE! Check out the Facebook event page.

Live At Iris Records w/ Brian Coleman

This past weekend I had the distinct pleasure of spinning some records with the esteemed author, historian, and DJ (don’t front, dude has heat!) Brian Coleman at Iris Records in Jersey City. He was promoting the second volume of of the Check The Technique book series, signing books, and dropping some lava rocks on the turntables. It gave me a chance to dust off some hip hop 12″s, assorted 45s, and it was exciting to spin a bunch of artists’ music that were featured in both books as well as well as some original samples. I didn’t really plan a set, but just kind of let it flow. It’s live and unedited, so there are some skips, etc. That’s the way we like it, raw and uncut, just like a live show. Mr. Coleman dropped a bunch of heat from his crates and played a wide variety of good tunes. I was able to do some digging to a cool soundtrack while he played. It was great to see a bunch of heads come out and support a great book and good dude all together. Thanks so much to Iris Records for hosting both of us, and I’m looking forward to getting behind the decks sometime very soon.
