Night Fever! Vol XIX : Reggae Edition w/ Nappy Riddem (DC)


*Nappy Riddem (Fort Knox Recordings/Wash DC) 

Nappy Riddem are the Original Rastars. Rex Riddem, Mustafa Akbar, and Ashish “Hash” Vyas formed this ragga-soul electro-funk super group. The trio is a unique combination of longtime collaborators with independent music industry stalwarts Afrika Bambaataa, Thievery Corporation, Thunderball, Fort Knox Five and Gogogo Airheart. The three cherry picked an all-star cast of D.C. artists to record with for their debut album “One World Sovereignty”. Edgy guitar riffs by Rob Myers (Thievery Corporation, Fort Knox Five, Thunderball), funky saxophone from Frank Mitchell jr. (Thievery Corporation See-I), and Rhymes from Asheru (Unspoken Heard, “Boondocks” theme song) are all included. Something special is created when the contributions of these superstars are blended with the sultry soul of Akbar’s voice, Hash’s dubby basslines, and Rex’s funky afro-Latin percussion.

Nappy Riddem was recently nominated for a Washington Area Music Association award as 2010 best performance artist in electronica. The Nappy crew just finished 2010 playing several sold out shows, headlining the Night Fever Wax Poetics party at the Scoot Inn Austin, opening for Bassnectar at the 9:30 Club in DC, and playing the CD release party for their label mates Los Empresarios at U St. Music Hall in DC.

Fresh from playing 3 showcases during SXSW, Rex Riddem recently finished mixing down Nappy Riddem’s debut album, due to be released September 2011 on Fort Knox Recordings. Their recent releases, deemed “groovy” and “awesome” by Steve Aoki, are featured on Fort Knox Recordings “The New Gold Standard 2″ compilation featuring a guest appearance by Asheru. Nappy Riddem’s sound, which is affectionately called “the Riddem Method” has even traveled as far as Budapest, receiving regular airplay on Hungary’s FM 90.3 as well as nationally on KEXP in NYC and Seattle.

Night Fever! Vol XVIII : Halloween Edition + Ursula 1000 Album Release Party!



*Ursula 1000 (ESL Music/NYC) 
ESL Musics URSULA 1000 is the alter ego of Brooklyn, New York based producer/DJ/multi-instrumentalist Alex Gimeno. His albums and mix sessions have taken on a broad scope of retro tinged spy grooves, bumping latin disco funk, hints of post punk, electro, go go, sleazy glam rock...and he never stops evolving.

You can hear it in his remixes for the likes of Quincy Jones, Felix Da Housecat, The Faint, Fort Knox Five to a slew of television remodels for themes to Sesame Street, The Powerpuff Girls, The Incredibles and Yo Gabba Gabba. Scenes and promos for Sex And The City, Greys Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother and Modern Family popped even more with a helping of a little Ursula as have campaigns for AT&T, Samsung, Adidas and Grand Marnier.

His collaborations with Dr.Luke, Shag, Cristina, Los Amigos Invisibles, Misty Roses, Federico Aubele to name a few brought forth sheer magic on the four albums, The Now Sound of Ursula 1000, Kinda Kinky, Here Comes Tomorrow and Mystics. All Systems Are Go Go and Ursadelica showed the world his dj skills and ear for the best in hip shaking groovers. Undressed had it all re-imagined by electronics finest like Deekline, Ladytron, Product.01, Malente and more.

You can find him traveling the world dj-ing at places like Fabric, The Big Chill Festival, Shambhala or even at his hometown funspots like Trophy Bar and The Commodore. For a more obscure selection of songs that make him tick, check out his radio show, Guilty Pleasures on

Ursula has just recently set his time machine controls towards primitive garage punk for his new E.P., FUZZ, featuring the inimitable Fred Schneider from The B-52s on the opening song, "Hey You!".

Drenched in snarling fuzz guitars, savage drums and spooky organs, this new collection of tracks unleashes his technicolor take on this sound.....and is a tempting taster for the next new album adventure...MONDO BEYONDO! (where our hero gets back in touch with his roots but channeling it through a new set of kaleidoscopic eyes)

"Mundo Beyondo" Austin Album Release! Ursula's new album out August 8th on ESL Music.

Night Fever VOL XVII : J-Boogie Album Release Party!


StrangeTribe Productions and Soul of the Boot Entertainment present 

Night Fever! Vol XVII : J Boogie Album Release Party!

*J-Boogie (Om Records/SF CA) 
The man, the myth, the Kangol. Known for his signature choice of headgear as well as a prolific career which has spanned two decades, San Francisco DJ legend J Boogie is back with Undercover, his fourth album with his live band, J Boogie’s Dubtronic Science. A decade after the first Dubtronic Science album, which fused electronic music with live band sound to create a genre-blending model, the musical landscape has become cluttered with more sub- and microgenres than you can shake a stick at. Luckily, J Boogie’s background as a radio and club DJ in the eclectic SF music scene has afforded him the ability “to roll with any situation and rock it,” he says. Rather than concentrate on a particular style, J Boogie’s strength has always been his adaptability; he’s created and refined a sound which can travel from the Bay Area to Bollywood to East London to Kingston to Chicago to Mexico City, and back. Live, the Dubtronic sound takes on added value, becoming a DJ set enhanced by real musicians. Undercover marks a shift in musical methodology for the veteran producer and club jock. “I started sampling less and started recording live instruments more, and treating the live instruments as samples,” he says. “That was a huge move for me. 90% of my material before then was sample-based.”

"Undercover" Austin Album Release! Boogie's 4th album due out October 4th on Om Records. 

Peep the dope video for the 1st single, Undercover featuring Chrys-Anthony! This New wave Nu Disco Soul sounds like a lost Cee-Lo Green jam session.

2nd Single

***FUNK ARK*** 10:45p

ESL Music's newest signing, The Funk Ark is a world funk ensemble based in Washington DC. The band's debut album was released on ESL Music on June 14, 2011.

Recorded at ESL Music Studios in Washington DC by Thievery Corporation’s sound engineer Christopher “Stone” Garret, From the Rooftops is the funk-tastic debut album from ESL Music’s newest artist signing The Funk Ark! Fronted by keyboard savant and long-time ESL Music session player Will Rast, the album delivers a healthy dose of vintage afrobeat, Latin, and funk stylings. Recalling the best of Afrika 70, the JB’s and the Fania Allstars all at once, The Funk Ark is your new one-stop shop for booty-shaking vintage grooves. Shout it from the rooftops!​tist/the_funk_ark

***BROWNOUT*** 9:30p

If ever a band could boast having a complex genealogical tree, that band is Brownout. The eight-piece, Latin funk ensemble based in Austin, Texas, is both offspring and germinating seed to Grammy-Winner Grupo Fantasma.
Brownout may well be Grupo Fantasma's psychedelic Latin funk little brother, an offshoot of the collective that regularly backs Prince, its latest incarnation, or even its alter ego. What they are not is the sprawling conjunto's side project. Brownout has taken Grupo Fantasma's funk roots and blown them up. In the process they've taken on a life and developed a unique sound all their own. Aguilas and Cobras, the group's new album on Six Degrees Records (9/15/09), stands as testament to their one of a kind evolution.

***Manolo Black*** Before and After Live Sets (Inside)

ATX based party rocker and hustler of culture, Trey Lopez, specializies in all sounds Latino: Cumbia, Latin Funk, Salsa, Chicha, Meregue, Baile Funk. Part of the DJ collective that holds down the largest monthly Latin dance party in the South ... Peligrosa.

StrangeTribe Productions & Soul of the Boot Entertainment present

Night Fever! VOL XII: The Boogie Edition

A special night of rare ghetto disco, funk and african boogie!

Kon (Kon & Amir/BBE Records)

1st EVER performance in Texas!!!!!

The story of Kon begins in the record bins of Boston. Like the vinyl he collects, Kon is a rare breed. He consistently shakes up dance floors all the world over, and his popularity is so high that fans actually offer up their own dusty singles and LPs as a gift to this beloved collector. His working command of music history makes him a breathing tome of wax knowledge; to that effect, Shady Records, Dr. Dre, Pete Rock, Diamond D, and Capitol Records (to name but a few) have called upon his expertise. Kon has gained legendary status oversees while achieving domestic recognition from some of the most beloved beat-diggers, DJs, and producers in the game.

"One of the most extraordinary beat diggers in the game." Lord Finesse
"His compilations and mixtapes are underground DJ classics." A-Trak
