As I continue my travels in America I have been checking out some seriously amazing stuff in New York. Bembe Bar is a sweet little spot in Brooklyn, and last night it was blasting out some amazing Cumbia and Dancehall. I went to Uproot Andy‘s night, Que Bajo? last Wednesday, but sadly he was away, Geko Jones still held it down though with Chief Boima, who is playing all over New York and producing and is definitely someone to check out.
Dave Parle is hosting True Stories for me while I am away, and this week he has got Barry Farrell joining him. It should be a real nice night. Barry is going to play some Electro Swing or Swing Electro. It sounds great. There should be some nice summer feelings in the Bernard Shaw tonight. Have Fun.
Here are three songs about Brooklyn.
Jay-Z – Brooklyn’s Finest (feat. Notorious B.I.G.)
MC Lyte – Kickin’ 4 Brooklyn
Mos Def – Brooklyn
