Solid: An All Live Mix

solid-bar-belly-mix-cover

This is a mix of tunes that would typically be played on my Wednesday night residency at bar belly in the Lower East Side of Manhattan in NYC. Bar Belly is an intimate space where I go from deep funk, to soul, Brazilian beats to instrumental early rap, original samples to dub reggae, and Latin boogaloo to garage rock, spinning for a crowd of music lovers and dancers who come for the vibe. The Wed. night features Pat Van Dyke and his trio getting the crowd warmed up with their brand of funky jazz and more, and then I take over with my funky little box of 45s to end the night. The mix was done live, all in one take, because you never get a second chance. Enjoy!

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.”

11.19 Shake! w/ Monk One in Brooklyn

shake-nov-19Tonight’s party, Shake! An All 45 RPM Party You Can Move To is a safe space where people of all races, creeds, religion, and sexes can come to hear great music. DJ Prestige and DJ Monk One provide an eclectic array of deep funk, proto disco, disco rap, and other funky delicacies on vinyl for you to get down to. With the recent passing of legend David Mancuso, and the soul great Sharon Jones, we are dedicating the party to both of them and the spirit they embody. As Monk One stated:

“Come together in a safe and welcoming space to let loose and celebrate the lives and energy of some of the great ones we lost this past week, consider joining us tonight as we pay tribute by championing the things David and Sharon did — transcendence and catharsis through music and dance, and sureshot motherfunkin’ grooves.”

This is what this party is all about. Come as you are, dance like no one is watching, and enjoy some music that reveals the true New York City. We may be from different backgrounds, but we are all one as we come together with this music. As usual, G Man is on the mic, taking us all on a fantastic voyage through these feel good classics. It’s a free party, so join us, won’t you?

Shake! w/ Monk One in Brooklyn 9/24

shake-9-24Saturday night, 9/24, we will be getting down in Brooklyn once again with our brother Monk One. Overheard recently, “Monk One is that dude.”, and they were right. Known for his deep, deep crates in many genres, this is our second installment of Shake! at the esteemed Friends and Lovers in Brooklyn. Shake! is all about the groove, and both of us bring our 45 RPM boxes filled to the brim with joints (or jawns if you’re from Philly) that are funky. Classics and future classics ride along side deep funk, proto-disco, and classic breaks. The first installment drew a break dance troupe from BK as well as a wide variety of people who wanted to dance to the break of dawn. We have a special treat, as emcee and host Glenn “G-Man” Holt will be in the house holding down the mic, so any time dude is in the house it is always a pleasure. FNL has a back patio for your smoking pleasure, plus the sound system BUMPS. All the more reason to get yo ass to BK Saturday night. This event is free, so we hope to see some familiar faces as well as make new friends. Music is the message people. See you on the dance floor.
