guest deejay:
OBAH(Recycled Funk / NYC)
DJ OBaH turned a family legacy into a profession, becoming a rising industry music producer and highly sought after NYC DJ. OBaH stands for OldskoolBeatsAndHarmonies for a very good reason... the son of veteran NYC DJ/Record Dealer, Baba Chico, DJ OBaH had the world’s best funk, jazz & soul records at his fingertips. Armed with his father’s epic record collection, OBaH quickly made his mark on the NYC club scene, becoming the resident DJ at several nightclubs in his native Brooklyn.

His talents have also been commissioned by such companies as Louis Vuitton,Vogue magazine, DKNY Jeans, Yahoo, Getty Images.

His tracks are currently in rotation on networks such as Mtv, Bravo. He can also be heard on the Giant Step jukebox radio, as host of his own show, Recycled Funk. OBaH is also employed as a DJ instuctor at Dubspot, a dj/production school based in NYC. He takes his “formative education” with him wherever he goes (thanks dad).

listening party:

"It's Not Me It's You"
9 to 10pm w/ giveaways!
"It's Not Me, It's You" is both a continuation of the preoccupations of "Alright, Still", as well as a stiletto-heeled leap forward. The forensic, affecting, often very funny examinations of relationships and sexual politics are still there - and joyously so - but bigger themes are also tackled: God is on this record, as is George Bush, and Allen's family are here, too. (Though not on the same songs as God and George Bush.) Plus all the triumphs and tribulations of life as a young woman in late Noughties Britain.
