The 14th of May is a big day….simply because it’s Strange Fruits fifth year anniversary and of course we are going to do what we do best…invite you over to club Watt to party with us!!
Naturally we have a sweet line up which include Spec Boogie (live), Peanut Butter Wolf (stones throw) & Theo Parrish (sound signature)… We know a lot of you out there already pencilled this gig in and blocked whatever needed to be blocked to be there…if this is you…you can skip this post. This post is for those of you who would really like to be there after you get what you are missing out on…so here we go…
Spec Boogie a simple dude from Brooklyn NY who loves art, women and hip hop. My first real Spec Boogie introduction was the track Bed Stuy a few months ago but this young man has been on the scene for a while now. He already has four mixtapes under his belt…Dollar Sign Language (2008) featuring the track Superfly, On My Grind (2006), Kid Gorgeous (2008), and Specflix (2009).
Off all the mixtapes I personally like Specflix the best, basically because it’s a whole project about movies that are taken as a theme for his beats and raps and as he is also a graphic designer the tracks are all accompanied by very cool visuals. More on the Specflix project can be found on Spec Boogies website and the videos can be watched on his vimeo channel. A very creative endeavour which is not only great to listen to but freaking awesome to watch .
To find out more about Spec Boogie his art and music I suggest you read this interview he did with Shookmag just recently available after you click here.
