Greg Belson – Time Less
An infrequent broadcast hosted by DJ Greg Belson, focusing on the beatscapes of 90’s club culture. Tracks that were forward thinking in production techniques, ground breaking in textures and time signatures but yet often forgotten. With the 2000’s came the advent of more powerful computers, easier accessibility to software and an ease to create at home; beatmakers of the 90’s had to either adapt or fall by the wayside. We’ll be unearthing some of the cream of the crop, that still relied on outboard gear, physical mixing desks and insane wired up patch bays to get the job done. With it came a certain warmth, particularly when it was arguably the last bastion of dance music to promote, press and present their music solely onto vinyl….it’s within these grooves that we’d like to celebrate with you a time in beat making. Join us as we spin the original format of what truly was a ‘Time-Less’ age.
4:00pm – 6:00pm

Since introducing his version of the modular synthesizer to the public in the late 60’s, Robert Moog’s legacy – The Synthesizer, has made an impact on the world far beyond that of a mere musical instrument, changing the way we build musical instruments, tearing down boundaries and limitations on the way we compose music, challenging our ideas of listening at large, and shaping the identity of generations to come, by making musical creation accessible to the masses.

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.
