Taste Talks All-Star Cookout | Brooklyn Exposed


With all of it’s differing art scenes, there’s one thing Brooklynites can agree on: eating is consistently fun. The first annual Brooklyn Taste Talks set out to appeal to the ever evolving Brooklyn foodie palate while paying homage to a range of topics covering our most basic (and possibly favorite) human need. Over the course of the two day event, there were multiple seminars at the Wythe Hotel, a pancake and fried chicken breakfast at Brooklyn Bowl, lectures and Kinfolk Studios, including guest lectures and appearances by Mario Batali, Wylie Dufresne, Dan Barber, Questlove, Alessandro Porcelli, DFA recording artist Sinkane and more. Much a nod to the international consortium of future progress and intellectual discourse “TED Talks”, Taste Talks culminated in a massive BBQ this Sunday aptly titled the All Star Cookout where foodies from all over the country ate standing adjacent to Brooklyn Smorgasbord in East River State Park. While the weekend’s festivities were curated by New York standout chef April Bloomfield (The Breslin, The Spotted Pig), countless chefs, celebrities, oenologists and restaurateurs including April herself came together to present their finest culinary offerings during a delightful sun-filled pre-autumn day.

May 2 2012 Brooklyn Shakedown: Del & Dexter Lawrence

It’s times like this where we celebrate coming together – sharing a vibe and a groove and making the absolute best of any given night. Well, this night is Wednesday…and these two fine souls are about to drop it on ya.

It’s not easy putting DEL into words. Firstly, we believe he encompasses all that is true and good and real about djs and dance music. As a staff reviewer for 5 Magazine and co-conspirator of the mighty-excellent Do Wanna Boogie? parties, it’s obvious others hold him in high regard as well. 

But, the complete fullness of DEL is experienced in person. His sets are informative, inspirational, and downright FUN. We could say more about him here, but it’s truly better to come see him tear it up.

Friend of the Brooklyn Shakedown, Dexter Lawrence is no stranger to soul music. He’s been holding down and building up to Saturday nights (the Soul Sessions to be exact) at Cafe Noir in SoHo for over a year now. Saturday’s top billing for a Manhattan residency and Cafe Noir (Brooklynites might like to know they run the always tasty Bar Tabac as well) has seen the likes of Liondub, Sid Vaga, Patafunk, and Wiseacre fill the halls with beautiful music, too. 

Great company.

It’s May friends…we’re sprouting freshness over here. SOUL is the safeword.

See you on the dancefloor.

Join us as we welcome back one of the Brooklyn Shakedown’s favorite duos, Clayton & Fulcrum, as we celebrate Clayton’s birthday.

Hailing from the city of soul, Philadelphia, Clayton and Fulcrum have been making funky and soulful music since 2002. Not limiting themselves to any particular genre or tempo, they run the gamut of styles, rhythms, and vibes in search of musical fulfillment. They are influenced by the warm sounds of Funk, Soul, Jazz, Latin, Jamaican, Brazilian, African, and marry it with electronic music production.

They have released 2 albums under their imprint Natural Selection with their third currently in production. Originals and remixes have been featured on Om Records, Fort Knox, Funk Weapons, Dae, and Imperial Dub.

Clayton and Fulcrum have established a reputation for creative live and DJ sets in Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington D.C. and opened for De La Soul, Massive Attack, and DJ Krush.
