Danny Holloway w/guest Dave Salvaje – Heads Up
I spin at clubs, lounges, parties + on radio. From ’97 to ’05, I spent up to twelve hours a day pursuing obscure funk music, traveling to Brasil, Jamaica, Nigeria, Ghana, France, the UK, Mexico and Canada digging for records. I’m from the LBC, but professionally began in London in the ’70s: first as a staff writer on the NME music weekly, followed by a few years at Island Records. I worked with BOB MARLEY, BURNING SPEAR, TOOTS & THE MAYTALS, JIMMY CLIFF and produced the HEPTONES album “Night Food.” I moved back to L.A. after five years in London and went back with Island, eventually lasting 23 years. I produced THE PLIMSOULS, signed SUBLIME, put together 22 soundtrack albums, etc. I recently returned to music journalism and I’m the music supervisor on a Marley feature film, doing consulting work for iTunes and still producing music. I’m also still digging and share the wax by spinning out or creating mixes for DUBLAB.COM.

Boss Harmony – Punky Reggae Party
David Orlando, AKA Boss Harmony, is a Los Angeles based DJ and Artist. He started spinning records in 1995 after studying at Otis Parsons and has earned a reputation for the breadth and depth of his unique and compelling musical selections. David took the name “Boss Harmony” in 2001 when he joined the Echodelic Sound System, the group responsible for the 12-year-running Roots Reggae night, DUB CLUB. As an avid vinyl collector of many styles of music, Boss Harmony has pushed the limits of party music in Los Angeles. In 2006, he created PUNKY REGGAE PARTY (along with DJ Michael Stock of Part Time Punks), which is now a Los Angeles staple of party madness. A year later, he teamed up with DJ Dina Juntila to create DR. WHO, a night exploding with obscure and psychedelic 60s world music.
Punky Reggae Party features musical selections from the Punk & Post-Punk period between 1977 – 1982 (although the show also features other era’s, sub-genres & Pre-Punk influences), as well as Jamaican music from the Ska, Rock Steady & Roots Reggae era’s, respectively. Reggae music & its recording techniques influenced many of the British Post-Punk bands & it’s recording techniques.

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.
