Under the Knife: a Night with MisterDoctor

Thats right friends! I'll be deejaying at the C&D in Northside this coming saturday Oct. 4th at 10pm. This is going to be a hot set, discofunk cuts so funky you wont be able to stop dancing so I suggest all 4 of you that read this to get down there and boogie. $5 pitchers of PBR all night, intimate dance floor, back yard fire pit? No excuse not to be there. I need to take this night back for real music, not that electro-house crap that they play down at Dance MF.

So people I hope to see you all there.

First Post: Baby Huey and the Babysitters - A Change is Going To Come

Alright friends here we go. I've decided to do this whole blog thing as a way to really dive head first into this era of music I love so much, maybe learn something and hopefully turn everyone on to some music they may not have heard before.

I'm going to start it off with this killer Baby Huey and the Babysitters track. This is an amazing spin on the Sam Cooke written song. Tons of echoey vocals as Huey really shows off his pipes. This is off the Babysitters only album Living Legend, released on Curtis Mayfield's label, Curtom. This album also contains the heavily sampled "Hard Times", used by A Tribe Called Quest (Can I Kick It?) and Ghostface Killah (Buck 50). Tragically Huey died of a heroin abuse related heart attack at the age of 26. It blows my mind, that voice coming out of a man only 25 years old.

Alright, y'all enjoy this track and the many to come. As the man says I hope you all become one of My People.
