• NEWS: GOOD RECORDS SHOW IN JUNE

    Before 2005 Jonathan Sklute was working in finance and moonlighting as a hip-hop artist and DJ. But in 2005, Jonny decided to leave the spreadsheet world and open his own record shop, chasing the dream many don’t dare to touch. Good Records NYC was born and after word got around on the internet, DJs and collectors from around the globe were interested in what Jonny and the crew were selling. The list of rare and pricey selections can get as high as the four-figure range, but Good Records NYC has plenty of dollar bins, re-released, and used records to keep any shopper’s pocket satisfied.

    DailySession is proud to bring Jonny and his crew on board for our LIVE broadcasts. Starting June 4th @ 8pm (EST) we’ll be broadcasting LIVE every FRIDAY from the Alphabet City record shop, and we can’t wait to hear what they’ll be adding to the DailySession line up.

  • AfroDubSesssion-Amir

    SLF presents Afro-Dub Sessions
    Saturday, May 29, 2010, 10 p.m.–4 a.m.
    (and every last Saturday of the month)
    Rose Live Music, 345 Grand St., Brooklyn, NY

    Sound Liberation Front (SLF), an arts and music organization based in Brooklyn, presents Afro-Dub
    Sessions: a monthly party at Rose Live Music in Williamsburg that combines live music and DJs to
    celebrate the best in Dub and African-influenced sounds.

    This month?s party will feature an Africa-inspired guest set by Amir from the world-renown record-
    collecting duo Kon and Amir. Revered for his extensive knowledge of music, Amir has made a name for
    himself compiling rare grooves for the duo?s legendary Kings of Diggin?, On Track and Off Track releases
    on BBE Records. This includes the just-released Off Track III mix CD, which features eclectic African
    disco and soul from the period following Fela Kuti?s mid-70s creative peak. Amir also heads the record
    label arm of Wax Poetics magazine, and has been featured in XLR8R, Spine Magazine, The Source,
    Scratch, and Urb.

    As it does every month, Afro-Dub Sessions also features a pair of live performances by resident band
    Super Hi-Fi, which combines Afrobeat, Dub, live remixing and special guest appearances to create their
    signature Afro-Dub sound. The five-piece collective features members of Aphrodesia, Slavic Soul Party,
    The Superpowers, and the Blue Man Group.

    SLF?s resident DJs Linh, Q-Mastah and Lil Tiger will bring their diverse musical selections to the
    turntables to round out the night.

    Afro-Dub Sessions is dedicated to the idea that dub, born in Jamaica, and African musical styles like
    Afrobeat, Afropop and Afrofunk are natural partners in the origins of global dance music. Each month
    SLF explores these connections by hosting a different guest DJ specializing in Dub or African-influenced
    styles. The June 26 party will feature New York reggae specialists Deadly Dragon Sound System.

    SOUND LIBERATION FRONT is a Brooklyn-based non-profit organization devoted to the power of music
    as a socially liberating and unifying cultural force. Last summer, the group organized the Sound
    Liberation Festival in Brooklyn. The event featured hip-hop legends Brand Nubian; electro-Afrobeat
    pioneers Chico Mann; Ticklah; DJs Kenny Parker, Cosmo Baker, and Ian Friday; and, workshops by
    Afro Mosaic Soul and DubSpot. SLF also hosts SoundLib Wednesdays at Moe?s Bar in Fort Greene.

  • NEWS: LIMEWIRE AT CROSSROAD

    By Joseph Plambeck – NY Times

    Mark Gorton is a confident guy. He’s confident about his ideas. He’s confident about his enthusiasms. And he’s confident that his successes — like making money on Wall Street and promoting alternative transportation in New York — provide a record that backs him up.

    But that confidence faces a new test. Two weeks ago, a federal judge ruled that he and the popular file-sharing service he created, LimeWire, were liable for copyright infringement and could be forced to pay up to $450 million in damages. [Read More]
