The End of Philadelphyinz

After almost seven years, DJ Apt One and I are ending the Philadelphyinz party.  We will still be doing Hot Mess at Silk City and collaborating on projects through Young Robots.

The final Philadelphyinz will be on 5/12 at Medusa Lounge, and we are thrilled to have Stretch Armstrong joining us.

But first, Hot Mess is a week from Friday (5/4).

Bonus Players Club / Sazon Booya in Philly!

Heads up … bonus extra Players Club tonight (4/11) with me and Sammy Bananas on the wheels.  Usually it’s just first and third Wednesdays, but we’re in for one extra this month.  Lucky you!  You know the deal, 10 PM – ???, upstairs at Pianos, 158 Ludlow in the LES.  I got drink tickets, just ask.

And then this weekend, moombahton stalwarts and friends-of-Skrillex Sazon Booya joining us in the basement at Medusa for Philadelphyinz on Saturday!  SB (aka Mr. Vega and DJ SAV) are the exception that proves the rule for a genre filled with so many terrible artists.  They put on a great show and make great tunes.  We’re excited and proud to have them joining us.

MTV Love + Nicky Digital Mix

STREAM OR DOWNLOAD SKINNY FRIEDMAN – PRE-PARTY JAMZ HERE

MTV named me as one of the leading moombahton producers in this article on the genre. I’m honored! And I will be putting out Trap Rave 2.0 very soon.

Also honored that mustachioed nightlife impresario Nicky Digital tapped me for the latest chapter of his long-running Pre-Party Jamz mix series.  Previous contributors include Crookers, Yelle, Drop the Lime, Soulwax and plenty of others.  My entry is one of my favorite things I’ve done in a long time, it’s a slim 25 minutes and bounces between future bass and space rap.
