Heidi Lawden – Magic Roundabout
Magic Roundabout was a French/English children’s TV show that appealed to adults. It was stop motion and every character had a particular personality or state of being, shall we say. In it’s height in the 80’s the show was broadcast daily and was one of the first to break ‘the fourth wall,’ defining fantasy and reality. Heidi’s Magic Roundabout will reflect every aspect of her musical personality as she invites listeners into her world every Wednesday 6pm to 8pm (PST)
10:00pm – 11:59pm
House Shoes – Magic
House Shoes, a resident DJ at the hip-hop staple venue St. Andrews Hall in Detroit, MI from 1994-2004 has had personal influence over a full generation of well respected emcees, producers, and then-future DJ’s. ‘Shoes was a 4x time winner of the hard earned title “Best Hip Hop DJ” in Detroit and used his platform to expose some of the best and brightest talent his city has had to offer to not only Detroit but the world as well.
As a DJ, ‘Shoes has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Europe, and Australia with artists Guilty Simpson, Illa J, Exile, Aloe Blacc, Percee P, Phat Kat, Slum Village and Elzhi, to name a few, as well as on his own, gaining the respect of acts far outside the scope of Detroit hip-hop. House Shoes also performed as opening DJ on Mayer Hawthorne & The County’s Spring 2010 16-city headlining U.S. tour.
As a producer, ‘Shoes has worked with the late and revered J Dilla and Big Proof, Black Milk, Danny Brown, Guilty Simpson, Roc Marciano, Chino XL, Invincible, Finale, MED, Nottz, Alchemist, Big Tone, Oh No, Elzhi, Black Spade, and many more. ‘Shoes has also helped to advise and mentor several more emcees, groups, DJ’s and producers during his time in both Detroit and California.
As far as his musical output is concerned, he self-produced 10” limited vinyl issues have also been released on Do-Over Records, backed by Flying Lotus, and All-City Records out of Dublin, Ireland. Those 10” limited vinyl releases are already considered rare & highly sought after pieces. He’s produced tracks on Danny Brown’s “XXX” (Fool’s Gold) and Quelle Chris’ “Shotgun and Sleek Rifle” (Mello Music Group) albums. His debut album “Let It Go” was released in 2012 by Tres Records.
He now spends the majority of his free time building new releases and strategy for Street Corner Music, his self-ran label, distributed through Fat Beats since 2013.
