July is upon us and Nutritious & Wilder have a very exciting lineup of special guest djs for this month’s Brooklyn Shakedown parties.
July 6th: Wiseacre
DJ Wiseacre runs three very successful LA parties, Funky In The Middle, Custom Sundaze, and now, theLIFT. Just around the bend from Brooklyn, you may find him rockin residencies at the Ace Hotel and deep underground at the flavor filled Sweet N Low parties and his Found Love NYC. Wiseacre’s messed with some of the best: Danny Krivit, Nickodemus, Louie Vega, Joe Clausell, Osunlade, Black Coffee, Mark Farina, Rich Medina, Spinna, dj Garth, Sabo, Vadim, Mark de Clive Lowe, and also Jeremy Sole. While the Wiseacre’s living a bi-coastal existence between LA and NYC, his LIFT party thrives out West and his soon to be restaurant/club Louie and Chan is getting its legs in Lower East Side of New York City. Wiseacre’s a top dj…He selects super fine tunes from the most danceable of genres …from Brooklyn grooves to Balkan beats, South American Samba to Sweden’s indie dance, he blends the house, the funk, the disco, the afro-latin, the broken-beat, and the dub …and he’s one of our faves.
July 13th: Pete Dafeet & Sunshine Jones
What can we really say about a free party with the UK’s Pete Dafeet (founder of the acclaimed deep house record label Lost My Dog) and San Francisco’s Sunshine Jones of Dubtribe stardom coming together on the same night in Williamsburg? Pinch me.
July 20th: Davidson Ospina
Davidson Ospina runs the record label Ospina Digital and also co-heads Open Bar Music alongside NYC’s Oscar P. Ospina’s resume as a producer, remixer, and keyboard session player includes Dimitri From Paris, Grandmaster Flash, Beyonce, Sebastian Fiebak, Jake Childs, Jocelyn Brown, King Britt’s Sylk 130, Arnold Jarvis and many more. As a producer, his hits include the #1 Billboard chart-topping remix of Christina Aguilera’s “Ain’t No Other Man” as well as reconstructions for Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys. The biggest DJs in the world -from Roger Sanchez to Frankie Knuckles- are playing his mixes. And, on this 20th night of July, we’ve got him rocking the decks DJ style, because he’s World class at that, too.
July 27th: Dave Allison
If you’ve been diggin the bins for today’s finest underground house music, you’ve surely come to know the fascinating sounds of Dave’s Kinjo and Editorial record labels. Just ask devout fans of the buzzin Stompy and Traxsource digital download stores and other boutique retailers around the globe. Dave’s recently signed the Corduroy Mavericks, JT Donaldson, Kinky Movement, Joshua Heath, Husky / Random Soul, Neighbour, The House Inspectors, Hector Moralez, Vernon & Dacosta, Combined, and others. C’mon now, that’s like the Who’s Who of the funkiest new school of house. Turns out, his new Editorial label is also jam packed; releasing tasty new takes on classic funk and disco cuts admired by djs and dancers everywhere. Dave’s also done the rounds on DJ duties with the likes of Carter, Farina, Heather, Soul Clap, and more – his dues are paid, and you bet they were mad funky. It’s our complete honor to welcome this Montreal native to the Brooklyn Shakedown.
