Lil Tiger

BuhbOmp’s own JD will be joining me this week at SoundLib. It’s been a minute since I’ve DJed with dude, so I’m really looking forward to having him as our special guest for the night.

Of course, the Houston native is known best here in New York for his collaboration with The Rub’s DJ Ayres on the critically-acclaimed Houston for Dummies mix CD showcasing some of the best tunes from Houston’s storied Hip-Hop scene. He’s also known for his killer bounce and reggae sets. But JD‘s range extends much deeper than country rap tunes and bounce.

Dude is about good music in any genre, whether it’s soul, rock, funk, disco, house, remixes or a melding of any of the above. He’ll have free reign at SoundLib to do whatever he wants. I’ve known this dude for a long, long time, and on the decks he never disappoints.

After taking a week off, SOUNDLIB is back this week and we’ve got a special treat: my good friend and one of my favorite DJ’s CHIKCEN GEORGE will be in town from Austin to get down on the decks with me.

CHICKEN GEORGE has made his name internationally through his signature “Jazztronica” style, an amalgamation of jazz, soul, eclectic bass and everything in between. His sets are known for their rare combination of superb technical skill and exceptional song selection.

Aside from being one of the premier tastemakers in the Austin music scene, CHICKEN GEORGE has released two records on the world-renowned, Stockholm-based label SWEDISH BRANDY. The two EPs, The Swed.u.s.h Connection 1 and 2, bring together tracks from Ocote Soul Sounds, J-Boogie’s Dubtronic Science, Lady Alma, and Hydroponic Sound System, alongside some of CHICKEN’s own production.

He has shared the stage with a wide range of talent including The Wailers, Pete Rock, Jazzanova, John Legend, Grandmaster Flash, Biz Markie, The Roots, Talib Kweli, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Afrika Bambaataa, Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra and Erykah Badu. So, we’re deeply honored to have him join us at SOUNDLIB.

For more on CHICKEN GEORGE, check out this recent interview he did for AOL’s Spinner music blog.

We’ve also featured three of his mixed here on buhbOmp:
¬ DJ Chicken George – The Legendary Latin Funk Sounds of Brownout
¬ Chicken George – Soundwave 10-Year Anniversary “Jazztronica” Mix
¬ Chicken George mix for Phunkwhatchaheard! Radio’s one-year Anniversary Show

As always, the party is FREE, and starts at 9pm. Details below. Hope to see you there.

/// This month at AFRO-DUB SESSIONS we’re proud to present featured guest DJ BRIAN SHIMKOVITZ of AWESOME TAPES FROM AFRICA.

After a stint in Ghana researching Hip-Hop music, Brian has accumulated thousands of cassette tapes of rare African music from Zimbabwe to Ethiopia to Senegal. He has been sharing his bounty through his popular blog and his DJ mixes, both of which have been featured in Fader, XLR8R, The Wire, The Guardian, and The Village Voice.

In keeping with the African spirit of the night, DJ AFRO-MARC of the acclaimed AFROBEAT BLOG will also stop by to play some choice Afrobeat and global music cuts from his collection.

As usual, the night features two performances by SUPER HI-FI, the resident Afro-Dub band which has been packing the house with their creative melding of Afrobeat and Dub.

SLF resident DJ’s LINH, Q-MASTAH and LIL TIGER will keep the party popping on the decks. And of course, the party is FREE all night long. ///

This week at SOUNDLIB, crate-diggers DJ LINH and BERT of Wax Poetics will join us to share some gems from their music collections.

Some of y’all may know LINH from her sets at our monthly Afro-Dub Sessions, where she’s been throwing down some killer African records alongside some great reggae and dub each month. BERT hails from the supremely knowledgeable team at Wax Poetics, the magazine of record for discerning record and music aficionados, and probably the best source of music journalism on the planet. The Wax Poetics crew know. their. shit. I know they’ll have some great tunes to share this week.
