    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. For the November edition of Afro-Dub Sessions, SLF is pleased to welcome Sal P from the legendary early 80?s “No Wave” band Liquid Liquid for a featured DJ set. Best known as the lead singer and percussionist of the highly influential New York group, Sal P has been active in the NYC music scene for three decades. Liquid Liquid?s three groundbreaking EP?s from 1981-84 on 99 Records forged a template of minimalist funk, dub and world music mixed with punk energy that has been followed by countless bands. Famously, their song “Cavern” was used as the basis for Melle Mel and Grandmaster Flash?s hit “White Lines” in 1983. Liquid Liquid broke up in1984 but reformed in 2008 and continues to perform. Since 1999, Sal P has hosted “Universal Sundays,” a regular party at various NYC nightspots featuring the African and Caribbean music. As it does every month, Afro-Dub Sessions will also feature a pair of live performances by resident band Super Hi- Fi, which has been packing the house with their creative melding of Afrobeat, Dub, live remixing and special guest appearances. The five-piece collective features members of Aphrodesia, Slavic Soul Party, People?s Champs, and the Blue Man Group. SLF resident DJs Linh 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. 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.



    A monthly nyc event of true party bangers from some of the best underground and above-ground talent in New York City and abroad. Focusing on DJ’s mixing across diverse musical genres and styles, FULL SPECTRUM has everyone’s favorite music covered. From old school rave to new school dancehall, retro to future-classic, booty-shaking jams and bass-weight, this Friday affair will have you dancing from start to finish.

    Hey were Banging The Door again at Trophy on Thursday November 18. This time my old time buddy Ole’ Koretsky of the Jetlag duo joins me on a majestic ride to the post-punk side.

    But, before that, at 7pm, I’ll be across the street at the Mishka store checking out the Das Racist show and we will be hanging, and they will most likely be banging.

    Don’t forget your safety helmet!

    German club veteran Timo Maas is a master of reinvention. Emerging during the excess of trance’s heyday in the late ‘90s with his self-labelled “Wet & Hard” style that fused techno, progressive house and funk in a rivetingly futuristic manner, he quickly became the remixer du jour for both the club underground and the commercial big leagues. Paul Oakenfold signed up his debut album Loud for his Perfecto imprint – a modern classic that effortlessly bridged accessibility and raw dancefloor sleaze from electro to breaks to tech and hip-hop – with his second album Pictures sharing a label with the likes of Muse and Garbage. And let’s not forget that “Dooms Night” remix of Azzido Da Bass which went on to inspire a generation of LFO-loving dubstep and bass producers. After a hiatus of a couple of years, he cast aside his chart-breaking fame and re-embraced his old love of techno, teaming up with Italy’s Santos in the studio and becoming a stalwart of Sven Väth’s scene-leading Cocoon Recordings, smashing everyone’s preconceptions of his work wide open. This period of resurrection saw the duo team under the banner of Mutant Clan, again breaking down musical barriers and giving the world their warped version of techno.

    He’s a musician who will succeed at whatever he puts his hand to, and his next move is always highly anticipated. Behind the decks, he packs one of the hardest punches around, pulling you inside his hypnotic world and creating sets that live, breath and thump as one cohesive, gargantuan entity. So dedicated is he to his craft that he’s built a club on his own land – a Funktion One-packed barn next to his farmhouse in Germany where he rigorously tests out his newest productions and finds. Only a DJ and producer as innovative, technically brilliant and downright loveable could be worthy of an undertaking as prestigious and lauded as the mixing of a Balance compilation. This is Maas’ first official compilation in 9 years.
