Golf Channel founder Phil South started his label in 2007 with a Janet Jackson edit by Mark E calledR&B Drunkie pressed on 100 numbered, one-sided twelves and handed out mostly to friends in lieu of the usual promotional routes. It’s a universally danceable track that spread across genres and introduced many to slower House music. The sound that South proceeded to carve out with his catalog of releases is both challenging and unique. Elements from the past blend naturally with a much wider variety of styles than most dance-oriented labels consider. Many of the label’s best releases are primarily instrumental, not sample-based. On the other hand, there are a great deal of edits included as well. These usually disparate musical regions come together under the same roof easily with great taste, timing, and a great deal of love for the craft of vinyl-making. [Read More]
Aqua-Booty! is back this month with more great music to get your groove on with special guest Mike Servito (Ghostly International) who will celebrate his Birthday with us!!!!!!!!!!!
Brought to you by Good Peoples Entertainment, Aqua-Booty! have been serving up the best music in NYC since 1993!
As always residents DJ Spun (Rong Music) and Greg Cuoco (Aqua-Booty Records) will be bringing out the best records in their collections for your dancing pleasure.
Mike Servito is a DJ’s DJ — a lifelong music fanatic with a truly unique ability to move a dance floor. Fearless in his seamless transitions from one style to another, Servito has an unpredictability and a deep trust in his music knowledge that has garnered him a cult following and made him an in-demand DJ the world over.
Although Servito is a NYC transplant, his DJ style is unmistakably Detroit. Inspired by Detroit radio of the ‘80s and the city’s local DJs in the ‘90s, Servito came of age in a flourishing electronic music scene, making his debut in 1995 and immediately gaining the attention and respect of his peers and local techno heroes. After a brief hiatus, Servito was lured back into the game through the vigorous encouragement of his close friend Magda, and returned to the DJ realm in 2002. Servito redefined himself, finding inspiration in the new generation of electronic-music producers and DJs.
In 2008, Servito became the newest addition to Ghostly’s DJ roster, and has happily returned to DJing and traveling the world playing his favorite music

Mixed by Anthony Avatar
Anthony Avatar is the last of a dying breed, a true native New Yorker of almost three decades. Anthony was born & raised in the heart of downtown’s melting pot. Rhythm has always been a fundamental part of Anthony Avatar’s development. He can still call on his earliest memories of his neighborhood… Hip-Hop booming from boom-boxes, Deep House & Disco pumping out of car systems, meringue in passionate flight from apartment windows… and after dark when the mosaic of NYC nightlife seemingly fled to the legendary Roxy. As 1/3rd of the Boogie Brothers Collective, a group that made and played – purely on vinyl – music for people to dance to at spots like Hammerstein Ballroom, Norwood, Hotel QT (alongside Shane Daddy,) Apt (alongside Neil Aline,) and Canal Chapter whilea holding residencies at Leux De Gamin, Ella and Santos. Inspired by Wayne Ford, DJ Harvey, Mark Farina, Gene Farris, and Todd Terry, Antony still aims to be the humblest of crowd-pleasers. Also contributing to his creative influences are Anthony’s experiences skating for Zoo York & Supreme in ’97, B-Boying, reading, and doing Graffiti pre, post & all through the Giuliani era. When asked what his goal is when he performs, Anthony simply states, “ I want the guy in the corner that doesn’t even like dancing getting it ON!” (adapted from Bio by BVD)

Solid is back on Saturday 13th for a special “Summer Of Love” ! ! ! Celebrating the classic house music vibes from yesteryear and today, along with the good people who make it happen, our mid summer Solid special is pleased to welcome special guest from London, UK –
the up and coming Deejay Mista Nugget ! ! !
Starting his career as one of the leading underground MCs in the UK drum and bass and two step/garage scenes, Nugget toured with top artists Goldie, High Contrast, Robbie Craig, Noel Mckoy, and Miss Dynamite. With his verbal flair, Nugget became known for his ability to hype up stadium crowds with his tireless energy …
However, his true passion was ignited when he turned his hand to DJing in the early 2000`s immersing himself in the nascent London soulful house and broken beat scenes. Building a name for himself as a DJ versatile enough to cross over between hiphop, deep house, garage, broken beat, and rare groove all within one set, Nugget soon established residencies through out London, including his own deep house night Hot Yoga.
As a producer, Nugget has done original and remix work for various artists and labels, with critical acclaim from labels such as Defected and MN2S, as well as DJ support from Phil Asher, Tony Humphries. Louie Vega, Nick Holder and more …
Making his Japan debut at Solid, Nugget is set to showcase the deeper shades of house, with records by the likes of Osunlade, Black Coffee, Lovebirds, Peven Everett, and Franck Roger filling his box. Throw in a little Tribe Called Quest, Foreign Exchange, and Slum Village, and you`ve got the “Hot Yoga” sound served right up courtesy of one of the most talented up-and-coming DJs from the UK – Deejay Mista Nugget ! ! !
Throw in the Solid resident DJs – Nebu Soku aka Kai and Megumi, Marshall, as well as smorgasbord of underground house music talent in the second room, and Saturday August.13th promises to an unforgettable night ! Thus, celebrating what we call “the summer of love,” a return to the roots of Solid and what good house music is all about – dope music, fun people, and good times !
Come and join us !
