The Wire - The HBO Series 4th Season Premiere Party '08
With a party that's much more sophisticated than the scenes depicted in the show, this season's party started with a nod to the grown folks in the cast. Later there were sounds for the new youthful cast members that Season 4 focused on.
One of my strategies when playing is to get everyone in the room involved by touching them musically. Some think, reasonably so, that the older generation is irrelevant in a party scene...play that new stuff and the geezers just gotta deal (or are invisible). It's hard for me not to see people that I admire. If you've been here longer than me and you have some exceptional accomplishments - I love you and you matter! At some point at everything I do, there's a 'here's to you' moment for my living legends in the house. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrD2172EkF4
Starting with some un(familiar) songs this blend moves quickly into NYC garage classics. Hip Hop came after Funk, Soul, & Disco, & Jazz so generally, in my sets, Hip Hop comes after all that's played.
Tracklisting forthcoming, press play and be there....
