In the last year, Never Say Never has brought the heat: Omar S, Kim Ann Foxman of Hercules and Love Affair, Tim Sweeney, Rick Wade, Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson are just some of the guests we have had our hand in inviting... you know how we do.
Now, to help you get over your Detroit Techno Festival hangover, we are bringing Mike Huckaby, the prolific producer and bangin DJ from Detroit to the Goodlife. Just for you.
Since meeting Mike in Detroit years ago, where he'd help us find Jeff Mills and Moodymann rarities, to his amazing productions on labels like ~scape, Desolat, Harmonie Park, Third Ear, to his remixes of Loco Dice, Losoul and Model 500, and on and on, to seeing him just destroy dancefloors at The Bunker and Kiss n Tell in NYC, Mike has won our deepest respect, and it is a special pleasure to bring him to Never Say Never at the Good Life on Friday June 3rd. Bring your dancing shoes, and get ready to get down.
Just look what Little White Earbuds has to say : "In the twenty-five years or so since his fateful encounter with Alexander Robotnick’s “Problèmes d’Amour,” Mike Huckaby has become one of the most respected figures in house and techno music – in his Detroit hometown and beyond. His love for the music is clear, and he engages that love from every conceivable angle. A legendary DJ, Huckaby stands at some remove from partisan stylistic divisions, winning over crowds with his encyclopedic knowledge of dance music history (the benefit, perhaps, of a lengthy tenure at the Record Time music shop) and an unusually sensitive ear for exceptional, ageless tracks. As a producer, he combines a taste for vintage sounds with a keen interest in emerging technologies, and has devoted untold hours to understanding and mastering a myriad of music-making tools."
