Authentic Sh*t, Delancey Music Service, & The Rub
We are big fans of the musical taste of Mark Ronson. BIG fans. I've heard so much amazing music (new & old) on his Friday night East Village Radio show, Authentic Sh*t, it's unbelievable. J.Period & K'Naan, the amazing Joker remix of Simian Mobile Disco/Beth Ditto's "Cruel Intentions," Penguin Prison, Theophilus London, Jay Electronica, Primary 1, Mr. Chop, Mayer Hawthorne, Diamond District, The Electric Prunes, Todd Terje, new jams by the Clipse... and I COULD go on. For a really long time. I can't think of anyone who has been more influential with the type of music I listen to these days, so, thank you, Mark. You can listen to Authentic Sh*t archives here. And, as it happens so many times, when you discover one artist/dj/tastemaker, you get a tiny glimpse into their world and what/who influences them. Through Mark I've become a big fan of Dj's Eli Escobar, Stretch Armstrong (together they host their won East Village Radio Show, Delancey Music Service), Aaron LaCrate (he guested on A.S. last night, btw), and the geniuses who make up Brooklyn's The Rub (DJ Ayres & Cosmo Baker). These guys are all mad talented and have brilliant taste in music. Thanks for all the tunes and inspiration!
