with Rich Medina and Akalepse
PROPS(Le) Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker Street, New York, NY) Map it $10
Rich Medina (Jump N Funk) and Akalepse (Truth & Soul) are obsessed with records and playing them for people. When they DJ they bring you that raw, outside the Top 40, heavy, fun, sexy, soulful and honest music they are both known and respected for. These guys are avid record collectors, each with a heavyweight stash of over 20,000+ records, so of course you’re going to hear things you don’t know… that is the point. But not the whole point, they play classic tunes right next to obscurities, always pushing the listening audience a little in a sincere effort to break new records and reintroduce slept on tunes simultaneously. The party they do together is called PROPS, it is a soulful music lover’s paradise.
FREE before 11pm, $10 after
