May 30, 2008: DJ Dirty Finger and DJ B-cause
"I have way too many rap tapes," chuckles DJ Dirty Finger about the vast collection of rare albums he's compiled over the past 15 years. This master mixer has become a familiar face among club rats in his adopted hometown of Brooklyn, and he was voted Brooklyn's best DJ by the readers of the NY Press. Maybe it's his keen ability to own the dance floor by crafting shifty melodies that combine hip-hop, Latin-soul, and euro-newwave rhythms. So what does Finger have to say about his DJ style? "I try to ramp it up from the very beginning!"
Opening is San Fran up-and-comer DJ B-cause, who has been dubbed "one to watch."
