Tonight we are back at Tokyo-style speakeasy bFlat in Tribeca for an evening of dusty jazz records and pristine cocktails. NYCTrust alum & Midnight Lab Band member DJ Oneman will be joining Scotchtape and I and pulling out the big guns from his collection. I’m already intimidated.

"A Beirut Minute" — Nickodemus and Justin Carty’s 2nd video together for their Global Minute project captures the edginess + vibrancy of the former "Paris of The Middle East" through Hip-Hop. Sick.

New Kid Loco 12” out today on Bastard Jazz

This little 12” beauty dropped today on Bastard Jazz and I’m excited to to have released it, as I’ve been a fan of Kid Loco’s for well over a decade and it was a pleasure to curate these remixes from some of my favorite producers from around the globe. 

You can grab the 12” and digital now on the Bastard Jazz shop, or use the links below. 

A real journeyman of styles and scenes, French producer Kid Loco’s chilled and exotica-laced nu-jazz gets a makeover from three different sources on these new remixes of “My Daddy Waza”. While Ezequiei Lodeiros Latinazo brings an uptempo samba-jazz feel to his very live makeover, Suonho couched Loco’s original in more studio-based funk for his more housey excursion. The most radical mix though comes in the form of the excellent, slo-mo disco rerub from Greenwood Rhythm Coalition, which gets delightfully deep thanks to some bassy pads and soft vocal loops.

Test pressings for our upcoming Kid Loco 12” are here! Here’s a short teaser of the Suonho Remix of “My Daddy Waza”, which sits nicely sandwiched between the Ezequiel Lodeiro and Greenwood Rhythm Coalition remixes. More previews coming soon & the record drops mid April!

You know you’re getting old and crotchety when you get more excited about playing Jazz Records with your friends at a fancy Cocktail Bar from 8 to Midnight than most other gigs you’ve had over the course of the last 3-4 months. 

That being said, I’m excited for tonight at Tribeca cocktail den bFlat - a Japanese Jazz bar staffed by ex-Angel’s Share alumn (so you KNOW the drinks are quality) - I’ll be playing Classic Jazz, Hard Bop, Free, Fusion, Cool, Vocal and more alongside my friends Scotch Tape and Yellowtail…All vinyl!

Here’s the Facebook invite

BFlat is located at 277 Church St, in Manhattan. 8PM-12AM. No Cover!
