The Rooftop presents 'Pleasure Tape Vol.1' Release Party
feat. Adam Auburn & very special guests.
Vibe out under the stars to a sexy af soundtrack where classic meets future — from the jazzy, funky, and groovy, to future fwd electronic grooves, plus tonsss of jazzy hip hop throwback jams (ie A Tribe Called Quest, Pharcyde, Biggie, Tupac, De La Soul, Digable Planets, Gang Starr, Souls of Mischief, Pete Rock, etc).
about PLEASURE TAPE: VOL. 1
«i wanted to take it back to a time when you could get lost in your headphones to a dj's mixtape… a tape that took you on a journey of varying, unexpected soundscapes as surprising as they were harmonious. from hip hop, to future bass, to dusty/dirty beats filled with jazz, funk, and soul, i wanted to try to make something that straddled the line between the past & the present. something future forward yet classic & timeless. a place where golden age hip hop like biggie smalls & tribe called quest could live in the same place as today's modern sounds. to create something original as a dj rather than as a producer is actually pretty hard, and i sincerely hope u are able to get a chance to throw some headphones on, take a walk on a sunny day, and listen»
