For the next Treehouse we're climbing up to a new level of getting down, which we hope to sustain through the fall and beyond.
In the Treehouse tradition, for 005 we'll be featuring two friends branching outside their comfort zone. DJ /rupture (ne Jace Clayton) is known for his triple-turntable global riddim incursions, but of late he's been all about cumbia, the Latino street music. So we're indulging him with an all-cumbia set at Treehouse, which will be welcome new music to many ears. Check out the archives of /rupture's WFMU Mudd Up! show, which rules.
Old pal Gamall works music of all kinds, especially house and techno, appreciates sounds from every corner of the globe (he's lived everywhere), and has played with some of the coolest cats you know and love. But he's a Sheffield native, and he's got a special soft spot for Northern Soul, the UK underground '60s black-soul sound. Unfamiliar? G's got Northern Soul in spades, and he'll walk you through a history lesson at Treehouse.
Treeboy and Raspberry Jones hold it down the rest of the time, naturally. Oh, we're starting an hour earlier (8pm) for all those pre- and post-paternal units and those with day jobs.
Wed., Sept. 16: 8pm-2am
