In Celebration of National DJ Day, we release this video to give a shout out to DJs across the globe who love the feel, sound and nostalgic energy of vinyl.
In the dark future music is confined by the digital age and a shortage of quality tunes, vinyl is now a rare luxury. Follow our music lover (Deep) on the search for his next fix. Watch his journey thru a series of gatekeepers (Ben Boogz, Pso, LiKWUiD) before ultimately meeting the Boss (DJ Evil Dee). National DJ Day is celebrated every January 20, and was founded to recognize Moondog aka Albert James Freed.
Pick up the limited edition vinyl “illfayted” 45-inch single today from Germany’s ORIGU. “Illfayted” is taken off the album Fay Grim by LiKWUiD & 2 Hungry Bros, available now on HiPNOTT Records.
Special Thank You to DJ Evil Dee, Pedro and 85 Deli Mini Market in Inwood.
ABOUT THE ALBUM
Fay Grim uses elements of jazz, gospel, hip hop, future soul, haus, afrobeat, spoken word and electronic music to visit topics such as abortion, race relations, friendships, self doubt, depression, betrayal, domestic violence, alcoholism, love, hope, religion, victory and ultimately self-acceptance. Arguably the “New African-American” or the “New Black” has become an auxiliary to the “New Negro” presented in the 1920’s as we reach the Centennial celebration of the Harlem Renaissance in 2020. The album begins with “Faytal Silence”, a rework of James Weldon Johnson’s “Lift Every Voice and Sing”; which is meant to be an artist’s call-to-action presented thru a creative lens of an artist accepting a role in the new wave of color consciousness, androgynous femininity, and social rebellion.
