This Monday! Let me get your week started nice and easy… I just scored some classic 90s R&B from Lō-Key, Jodeci, and Tony! Toni! Toné! If three exclamations aren’t convincing enough I also have on tap a choice selection of solid electro boogie jams from Chemise, Barbara Mason, Shirley Lites and more for those wanting to cut some serious rug. Hope to see you there! Peace, DJDP
Brrr, it sure is damn chilly out… Good thing this Saturday Beech Street will be sporting the coziest couches, hottest toddies and smoothest 80s and 90s soul, funk and r&b hits spun by yours truly.
I got all sorts of new goodies to share: Sherrick’s debut (and sadly only) album, Levert’s classic Big Throwdown, some O’Bryan, Luther Vandross, Kashif, Ready for the World, After 7, Slave and The Isley Brothers.
Join me, won’t you?

Time to let me turn down the BPMs on the start of your weekend with the smoothest in 80s funk, soul and R&B. It’s been a while and I got lots of new jams to unleash including some spacey funk from Chicago’s Faze-o, old school Cameo, Slave, and a very guilty purchase of Newcleus’ Jam On in case anyone feels like break dancing mid-set (looking at you Mark).
Hope you can make it!
NY Peeps: I’ll be spinning more of the finest Funk, R&B and AM Gold with my main man DJ De La Rose (together again after a 1 year break!). It’s all going down at Troost in Greenpoint, Brooklyn (1011 Manhattan Ave) a day after my birthday — so come toast my new found old age and maybe dance to a number or two. The goal of the evening will be to reach MAXIMUM SMOOTHNESS. Join us, won’t you?
Spring has sprung! Time to relax with a refreshing vodka lemonade while grooving to some choice slow jams and ease-z rhythms. DR’S ORDER.
