mixTape Time 13: DJ Kon Plays 4 Keeps

So, we try really hard not to pick favorites in Soulclap land. You know its a lot like middle school where the teachers tell you not bring candy because someone always gets left out or upset or hung up on the wedgie hook. Well, we’re making an exception with DJ and re-edit king Kon, so here it goes: DJ Kon is the best Disco/Funk/Soul/Boogie DJ in the world, yeah I said it. Yes of course, I know. You’re probably saying “but but but, what about DJ BLAH BLAH”! Well, Kon will not only mix circles around whoever you’re thinking about but then at then end of the night he’ll go home and sleep in Dorchester. Being from Boston is 10 extra points.

Saturday July 12th, DJ Kon will be performing from 8-10p at Dancing On The Charles. We are very lucky to have him and are extra excited to hear the man throw down. In case you’re not up to speed on the Kon & Amir compilations like The Kings of Diggin (released 2006 on Rapster Records, sub-label of Studio !K7) or the more recent Off-Track compilation series on BBE, you should get hip. To give you a taste we’ve got a perfect summertime mix to get you in the mood that Kon did a few years. Check for more goodies on his blog Playin4Keeps.
