Here’s more info from the folks at SLF:

Do or Dine and Sound Liberation Front are teaming up again for RUB-A-GRUB, a food and music backyard party featuring DJ Akalepse (Truth & Soul/ Plane Jane) and DJ Still Life (STR8 West Coastin/ Worldwide Smash) and a three part menu crafted by Do or Dine‘s chefs.

The event will kick-off in the afternoon and feature three rounds of food and drinks, each coupled with different DJ sets. There will be drink specials and a unique food menu by Do or Dine’s chef, Justin Warner.

Obsessive crate digger DJ Akalepse is known for running the full spectrum of soul music. Together with Rich Medina, he hosts the widely respected weekly NYC party PROPS. Before that he was Resident DJ at the legendary and now closed NY Venue APT. Coming up as a Battle DJ, Lepse learned early the importance of moving the crowd. His humility and endless respect for music has garnered him accolades in soul, funk and hip hop circles the world over. With a heavyweight stash of 20,000+ records he plays classic tunes right next to obscurities, always pushing the listening audience a little in a sincere effort to break new records and reintroduce slept on tunes simultaneously. Akalepse has also put his vinyl passion into his role as label manager/ A&R of Brooklyn-based Truth & Soul Records, famous for releasing hot wax from artists like El Michel’s Affair or Lee Fields.

DJ Still Life is a member of a dwindling tribe: DJs who learned the craft on turntables and vinyl, and were raised on dubbed mix cassettes in the rapid fire cut-and-paste tradition of the Bronx forefathers. Whether spinning golden era hip-hop, brand new electronic productions, vintage rarities, or club essentials, Still Life puts a premium on presentation and inventive mixing. His current regular gigs include a throwback boogaloo party Jackpot! with DJ Small Change, and a summertime West Coast hip-hop daytime BBQ.

Do or Dine has been paving an innovative culinary trail in Bed-Stuy since in 2011, receiving wide acclaim for their fun and eccentric approach to cuisine or “fine diving” as the owners coined it. NY Magazine notes, “nothing is as straightforward as it seems. There are (savory) doughnuts stuffed with foie gras mousse, and fried dumplings under a veil of melted cheese an Asian-fied play on nachos.”

This go around we welcome fellow R&B lovers Soul Korea and DJ Benny B into the mix. No stranger to the groove, Soul Korea is the godfather of the Smooth Move summertime party movement for NYC featuring the best in soft jams and light rock. Not to be restricted in musical reach, he’s also a lover of soulful, funky jams from yesteryear, especially ones with synths, drum machines, and questionable hair products. Nightlife DJ and avid mixtape maker DJ Benny B wears many hats with his DJ duties, but in the realm of R&B, this hat would most likely be cocked to the side with a tilt of the brim… and maybe a condom over one lense of his glasses. Listen to his Feels Good 90s mix here for a sample of his stylings.

As always, expect a range of throwback favorites and future classics – soul classics, disco, slow jamz, hip-hop remixes, new jack swing, lovers rock, house, neo soul, Atlanta Bass, pop… whatever goes – all wrapped into one seamless groove.
