TONIGHT: KCRW's Jeremy Sole Spins at Continental Room
Okay despite the fact that he mentions playing in the "IE" tonight on his Myspace page when referring to his gig at The Continental Room, we're willing to give Jeremy Sole a break. He's just that good. And maybe while he's down here, someone can remind him that Fullerton is still in Orange County.
But either way, the fact that this late-night turntable wizard from KCRW 89.9 FM is coming down to show some love adds another solid lump on to Continental's DJ cred. As one of the co-founders of Afro Funke Thursdays in Santa Monica, Sole has been heavily entrenched in the L.A. underground scene for years, also fronting his own live 9 piece band and of course spinning his favorite funk, afro beat and world music in the wee hours of the weekend. He's also had the privilege to DJ and record with names like Lauryn Hill, Cut Chemist and Stevie Wonder. No, that last name was not a type-o.
Tonight, he'll be joined DJs Bobby Soul (no, they are not cousins) and Thee Conductor, in an all night vinyl session tailored to fans of rare, exotic grooves and some shit that just makes you want to pack the dance floor. Sets start at 9 p.m., no cover.
