FleaMarket Funk: Live From Greenville Studios Episode #12

February 9, 2016

After a two month hiatus, we are back in business.  This is our first episode of 2016, and we have chosen this recording session to give our audience a sneak peek in video form as well of what we do here at Greenville Studios.  The video itself can be seen over at the FleaMarket Funk YouTube channel, and the audio for the session is pretty funky.  DJ Prestige goes through some deep African funk cuts, psychedelic soul from Detroit, new tracks from the Pacific Northwest's Liquid Beat Record, a Maurice White early track (R.I.P.), some free jazz from Cultures of Soul's new Boston Area Jazz compilation, West Coast classic hip hop remixed, a NOLA classic re-edit, and a reggae tribute to the G.O.A.T. Muhammad Ali.  Recorded live and in one take at the Greenville Studios in Jersey City, NJ, stay tuned for more episodes and our new FleaMarket Funk TV endeavor which will contain interviews, in the field digging, Big Ups, and more.  If you dig what you hear, please pass it on.

Well, we made it to episode 10 of Live From Greenville Studios.  Almost a year ago we relocated, and we promised we would get a radio show going on, and we are excited to keep on keepin' on.  This episode is an all 45 special.  Nothing but seven inches for the hour plus show.  Not to mention we recorded it on the first day of Summer and Father's Day.  This show is dedicated to my father, who took me from a boy to a man, and showed me what it means to be a father.  It's also dedicated to all you fathers out there who do it and do it well.  Sometimes it is a thankless job, but it always pays off in the end.  This particular episode we highlight new sides from Grace Love and the True Loves, Chris Hazelton's Boogaloo 7, Pat Van Dyke & DD Spinna, NYC Trust's Swing-A-Ling Series, new rocksteady from Queens, NY, with the Frightnrs, new Poets of Rhythm, Jorun Bombay's edit of JB, plus classic funk tracks from Freda Paine, Moon People, Quincy Jones, We The People and more.  There is something for everyone in number ten, including some new digs from the Jersey City Record riot, reissues from our pal Nik Weston, and a whole lot more.  Stay cool as you crank up these hot lava rocks wherever you are.  As always, if you dig, feel free to also tell a friend.

Today we bring you a fresh episode of Live From Greenville Studios.  It's our eighth episode and number eight quite a treat.  For this episode we brought in Robert Perlman of the excellent vinyl music blog Funk For The People.  This site has well over 1600 original vinyl record forty fives of obscure funk, soul, and other assorted funky oddities from Robert's hefty collection.  A lifetime New Yorker, Rob was once the publicist for the Jungle Brothers, worked with A Tribe Called Quest, and tells us some great stories about his time with artists such as the Beastie Boys and others.  We discuss New York City, records (of course), the Roosevelt Hotel record show, and more.  It was our distinct pleasure to have him sit in for a session, as well as give us an incredible all 45 guest set at the end of the show.  We could have done 4 hours of just him and his records easy, so a second show is already being planned.  For now, put on your headphones and enjoy this latest episode.

FleaMarket Funk: Live From Greenville Studios Episode #7: Special Guest Pat Van Dyke

March 3, 2015

On this edition of Live From Greenville Studios, we have the multi-talented musician, band leader, and composer Pat Van Dyke aka PVD.  Originally, we were supposed to have both he and John 'Sci' Robinson, but another snowstorm blew through and held up John.  We are going to reschedule the two to speak on their musical partnership and more very soon.  PVD brought over some records  as well as a bottle of bourbon to share, which was perfect for a snowed out Sunday here in the Greenville Studios.  During the course of the show we touched on his collaborations, his influences, and he brought a bag of records we played and talked about.  It was my pleasure to have this talented cat in the studio, and along the journey you'll hear some tunes PVD is into these days, as well as new tracks out of the Daptone camp alongside reissued soul from Secret Stash, a new Polyrhythmics track, some of PVD's music (of course), and much, much more.  Thanks for tuning in, and stay tuned for the next episode coming to your headphones very soon.

FleaMarket Funk: Live Frome Greenville Studios Episode #6: Special Guests Skeme Richards/ Soki Kimura

February 24, 2015

This week on Episode #6, we have a special treat for you FleaMarket Funk readers and radio listeners out there.  We were joined by The Nostalgia King, Soul Brother #1, Butta Brother and Hot Peas and Butta founder Skeme Richards as well a drummer Soki Kimura from Osaka Monaurail.  They both stopped by the studio after we took them record digging and out for some burgers here in Jersey City.  During the course of the show we play some funky stuff from around the globe, talk the 45 game, reissuing records, choice hamburgers, shady promoters, staying in our own lane, and more.  We also talk to drummer Soki Kimura from Tokyo, Japan about his involvement in Osaka Monaurail, his influences, and his touring time with the great Marva Whitney.  After our interview (which took place in a raging snowstorm!), Skeme gets down to business and laces us with a 35 minute mix of funky records of all sorts, mostly from Japan and abroad.  Needless to say, there is no track list, so like the old days, you'll have to search for these titles.  We were honored to have both in the studio, and hope you enjoy this as much as we did! It's definitely one for the books.

Flea Market Funk: Live From Greenville Studios Episode #3: Special Guest Brian Coleman

December 5, 2014

In this third installment of Live From Greenville Studios, we sit down in the lab with hip hop historian, author, and journalist Brian Coleman to discuss his latest book, Check The Technique Vol. 2.  Along the way, we speak on his book series as DJ Prestige digs through Coleman's record bag and  randomly  plays records that the author talks about on the spot.  We also highlight new tracks from Professor Brian Oblivion, Moscow Nightlife, Buscrates 16 Bit Ensemble, Baby James, as well as sides from Pseudo Intellectuals, Augustus Pablo, Harumi, Myron & E, and others.  Knowledge was dropped, and if you're a fan of golden age hip hop, you get to hear some great stories behind a few of the records in his Check The Technique book series.  We are excited to have Brian here in the studios as our first guest, and we hope you enjoy what he was waxing poetic about as much as we did.  It's a hefty show (just over two hours), but well worth the price of admission.
