Pass The Butter Baby! Wednesday July 7th w/ Kris Hernandez

Every Wednesday night at Andy Poolhall, Bruckbeat radio's Splattermonkey & Friends present... Pass the Butter Wednesdays!

We asked Splattermonkey, what he was going to do with his night, and he said, "W'ell be drippin' some hot buttered Soul, Blues, Funk, Latin, Afro, Afro-Latin, Ska, Reggae, whatever's good. You know, from our crates and crates of Motown, Stax, Atlantic, Cadet, Cadillac, Daptone, Tru Thoughts, Studio One and... blah blah blah blah..."
Thanks Splattermonkey! Never ask this guy about music. He never shuts up. It's much better to hear him spin. Check out his podcast at http://splattermonkey.podomatic.com

AFTER PARTY!!!!!!!

 

Hosted by Robb G and friends. Funky house and filthy bass to make your shake your rump.

Robb G is literally "in" the music when he's on stage, dripping with sweat as he screams at the crowd, possessed by the music while he throbs in a head banging body thrash. After seeing him live, there is no questioning that Robb G is a man who truly loves what he does. Known for his speedy beatmatching and continuously layered mixing, he's performed in Europe and from coast to coast in North America, appearing in over 40 cities on his
native continent.

Robb G has had releases and remixes on over a dozen labels in the last decade. His 12 Inch Therapy single received tremendous acclaim, making its way to the top of URB, iDJ, and Mixmag's Best Of 2008 lists. It hit the
number 12 spot on the UK buzz charts and became the number 1 most requested song on Sirius Radio's Boombox Channel for the entire year. It is no surprise that the Plump DJs named him alongside Justice and Switch when
asked who the most exciting producers are.

With his current releases being played by the likes of Kissy Sell Out, Lee Mortimer and DJ Dan, a second full-length album already in the works and a 2010 touring schedule that will take him to the 4 corners of North America and abroad, it's a real special treat to catch Robb G in the intimate Andy Poolhall environment.

Special guests: Evan G from Activate and Chiclet from Eclectic Groove.
