We cordiallly invite you to attend our beloved NYC Shakedown @ Bembe, a DJ/Live instrumental dance party hosted by yours truly, Nutritious & Wilder. This Wednesday, we present a very special Shakedown (post Bowlive2/BK Bowl btw) with our great friend, Neil Kurland.
As co-owner of Soul Mob Productions, Neil co-founded the epic Visionary Solstice Gatherings that have hosted such acclaimed artists and musicians as Alex Grey, Fort K...nox Five and Shpongle. He’s also a resident of the Philadelphia Experiment (PEX), playing events throughout the east-coast, and has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in electronic music including EOTO, M80-Dubstation, Ron Carroll, Bassnectar, Jay-J, Jask, LTJ Bukem, and Infected Mushroom.
If you’ve ever met Neil Kurland, you know that he is not easily forgotten. In addition to his memorable charisma, he brings with him an excited and energized attitude that permeates every interaction he has. He brings this same excitement to every show that he plays, and revels in passing it on to his audience.
Born in Baltimore MD, Neil came up in the world of Hip-Hop and Baltimore Club, playing alongside such luminaries as Karizma, Scottie B and DJ Spen. Known for being a master of the art of turntablism, and for genre-bending sets of house, hip-hop and intelligent drum & bass, he’s graced the decks of such legendary parties as Miami’s Afternoon Delight (“5 Best WMC Daytime Parties” by MixMag UK), Ultraworld’s Starscape Festival, Baltimore’s Mosaic lounge (twice listed as Spin Magazines “Best Nights Out in America”), and is co-host of this year's Winter Music Conference 4th Annual Future Classics Pool Party headlined by NYC's own Danny Tenaglia on March 8th.
Although still a lover of the music of his roots, Neil has settled firmly in the realm of house music where he has made an indelible mark. Famous for marathon sets of tech house splashed with deep tribal undertones, heavy hitting percussion, and infectious bass lines, Neil is truly the dancer’s DJ. This focus on the dance floor has helped to launch his career to new heights in recent years, and he has been active in the electronic music scene now more than ever.
Special guests will also be announced from deep within NY’s funk, jazz, soul scene to sit-in live and help bring the heat.
Additional dancefloor support by Nutritious & the Dailysession brought to you by Mr. Monchan (Toshi of FunkySlice/Vinymania/Zakka Show).
We thank you so much for your support, fam, we are really excited to bring you this celebration!
Expect warm-vibes and dirty dancing curated by Ms. Wilder along with Bembe’s signature tropical drinks served blessed and fresh by Tory (we suggest the rum punch with a tall glass of fresh cracked coconut juice)
