Two weeks ago, the homie Darrell D made another summer sojourn to NYC. As usual, he got a chance to rub shoulders with various legends of hip-hop at the park jams and elsewhere. Before breaking back to the Southwest desert, he brought the Arizona heat to the East Village as a guest deejay of Mobile Mondays at The Bowery Electric. Every Monday night, from 10PM to 4AM, Mobile Mondays unites local New York disc jockeys (Just Blaze, Misbehavior, Operatorz EMZ, Natasha Diggs, etc.) with visiting vinyl addicts from across the US and other parts of the groove-lovin' globe -- and they play strictly 45's all night. Now, I'm prolly a lil' biased, since Darrell D is my boy, but I've heard the MP3 of his time on the tables, and I think that he nearly burnt the Bowery down. You can hear (and judge) for yourself, though. Courtesy of The Bowery Electric, YKFS offers your lucky ears forty fiery minutes of funk, soul, hip-hop and Afrobeat grooves direct from Darrell D's Mobile Monday's set (click here)!
