I'm honored to bring to you an exclusive mix I curated for Made In NYC and The Pratt Center For Community Development. The mix you have before you is an eclectic mix of New York City musicians, producers, and artists. I tried to stay as close to artists who were born, raised or lived in New York City during their career. There are a few artists that I dubbed honorary New Yorkers for obvious reasons; the music was that good or is synonymous with one of the five boroughs. I wanted to give a broad overview of what I believe are great NYC artists and the music they make. This blend of Funk, Soul, Jazz, Latin, and Hip Hop has artists that they are New Yorkers in one way or another. It was done all live and in one take and showcases some of the artists in NYC from the 1950's right up to the present day. It’s not every artist, but a cross section of musicians that I feel are important to the beautiful City of New York and am proud to call New York City my home.
