I am so down with DJs Michael The Lion, Shawn Ryan and Del's vibe for Hooked — loosely billed as "disco classics and the music they inspired" but as you can hear, it's so much more specific than that — that I want to make my own iron-on t-shirts for it or just start tagging elliptical references to the vibe all over town. What will they say? Here's a few tries:
"KISS ME, I'VE GOT PATRICE RUSHEN ON IN MY HEADPHONES"
"LUTHER VANDROSS MEETS KEITH HARING AT NELL'S"
"THIS IS THE SOUND OF DON CHEADLE'S AMAZING STEREO STORE IN BOOGIE NIGHTS"
"NU SHOOZ FAN CLUB PRESIDENT"
"MT. AIRY GROOVE"
You know, stuff like that. Did I mention I love this vibe?
