The first season of CaveCast is wrapping up this Friday, June 21st at the Philadelphia Art Alliance with CaveCast 008: Funk: From NOLA to Philly. Join us for a special celebratory Happy Hour from 7:30 to 8:30 (first case of beer is free).
At 8:30 CaveCast 008 will kick off with DJs and record collectors Joshua Kwedar and James Norman aka FROZ1 and Personify, who will share some of their favorite obscure records from their collections. They will discuss how the collection fits into their party Little Big Things, an all Funk party which takes place second Fridays at the Trestle. They exclusively play 45 rpm records, the standard format for singles released on vinyl. The high speed allows for a larger capacity for storing information and produces a high-fidelity recording. According to audiophiles, 45’s offer a far crisper and superior sound to 33 rpm records.
A serious crate digger, Joshua Kwedar aka FROZ1 specializes in the rarest cuts of music made in the Philadelphia area from 1960-1990. His tireless search is documented on his website Septunes, which brings to light some of the most obscure gems produced in Philadelphia, Coatesville, Valley Forge, and other places throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania.
James Norman, aka Personify, brings his varied tastes and turntable skills to bare at the monthly Shindig party at Medusa Lounge.
Stick around for a Dance Party beginning at 10pm as FROZ1 and Personify spin the Funky sounds of Philadelphia late into the night.
This will be the last time to check out CaveCast until the Fall. We return in September with another killer monthly lineup including the return of DEL for his second installment of his series on the History of the philaDELphia Dance Floor on October 4th.
