Local man-about-town and house-music ambassador, Brett Starr, has found a niche with his fifth-Friday House Revival shows at Funky Buddha; the basic idea is to bring together three DJs with different styles and have them spin a cohesive set together, switching off one-after-another at the decks. It's proven to be an innovative and successful format, and next month's House Revival is a very special edition. An all-vinyl edition.
As anyone who's spun actual records before -- or listened to someone spin actual records before -- will know, there's nothing quite like the crackle and hiss of vinyl over a bumpin' system. It might not be as convenient as a CDJ, and it's also much more challenging to mix, which is why Starr and guest DJs Beekay and Matt Bass will no doubt be at the top of their game. The party will kick off at 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 30, at the Funky Buddha Lounge.
