New York City-based music journalist/ DJ Rico “Superbizzee” Washington turns up the heat on his crate digging expertise with his latest summer audio collage New York Is Red Hot: The Anti-Mixtape! Over the course of 57 minutes, Rico a.k.a. Superbizzee flexes his skills as an eclectic music archeologist and consummate storyteller by intricately weaving sound bytes from Spike Lee’s classic summer film Do The Right Thing, Sesame Street audio clips, and the sweatiest joints from yesteryear into a dynamic web of aural nostalgia. Keenly juxtaposing and cross fading varied genres such as boogie, obscure 80s dance, funk, soul, rock, and experimental 60s pop, Superbizzee adeptly repurposes the mundane and oft-pillaged mixtape format into an intriguing listening experience in the form of a brilliant music connoisseur’s audio collage. New York Is Red Hot! features nuggets from the likes of James Brown, The Free Design, Love Club, Blackbyrds, Quincy Jones, and more!
