There’s an old saying that you can tell a man by the company he keeps and if this is indeed true Cassio Ware is a real gem! The House Music legend rolled up in our Brooklyn studios with some of Jersey’s most talented (and nicest!) and we proceeded to have a blast! Cassio laid out a lot of the history of the Jersey House scene and shared new music that the talented Vickie Ryan, Cynthia Tucker and Kyle “The Voice” Abercrombie and DJ Sharif who joined us in the studio, contributed to. What a stellar night from some of Jerseys brightest house music stars!
September is back to school month in the US, however we decided to take it back to the old school, the true school, the cradle of civilization by bringing it back to Africa! Nigeria to be exact! We chat with legendary Femi Kuti prior to his Celebrate Brooklyn show and our featured guest in the studio is the accomplished singer, musician and fashion designer Wunmi! Also in the studio we had a special visit from Haitian DJ Sabine Blazin!
August was hot in the studio as we welcomed DJ, Producer and co-creator (with Lenny Roberts) of the seminal music compilation series "Ultimate Breaks and Beats" Breakbeat Lou to the Sweet Spot!
Check out our exclusive two hour intimate chat with Lou above on Mixcloud and below downloadable on Soundcloud as we discuss his long legacy in music and take a stroll through the foundation days of hip hop, house and new developments in celebration of thirty years of one of the understated but key players in modern musical history.
