Phonica continues their well-loved in store gigs with dance music legends of today such as Boo Williams and Ron Trent. This Friday, the 12th of December, Phonica presents Jersey/New York house and techno veteran, Brothers’ Vibe.
Brothers’ Vibe AKA Tony Rodriguez has been around since the colourful, disco days of Tony Humphries and Studio 54. He is celebrated for his musical knowledge and experience as a music collector and selector, where he has been spinning records since the age of 14. In 1994, he started Brothers’ Vibe, and today, he homes more than 60,000 records. A true pioneer of underground dance music, Tony manages five and soon six labels, most famously SOM Underground and MixxRecords. His labels continue to release musical gems after more than a decade of existence. He clearly has a strong and loyal following. Known to listening to almost all the demos he receives, this friendly guy has certainly helped many artists pursue their musical dreams.
Tony too is a compulsive producer, where he has released classics such as his “Revolution” on SOM Underground, and is known for his diverse range of productions, from his beloved tribal and latin sounds to deep and dark techno. After taking a breather from his own original productions, Tony is back with a promising line up of music and gigs.
Tony’s in-store gig at BM Soho in 2009
In fact, he returns to Soho’s street of record stores (his last in store showcase was in 2009 at BM Soho) to mark the beginning of his European tour, this time at Phonica. This move certainly fits well with his mantra of supporting local record stores.
He continues into the night for his only gig in London for well-respected Cartulis Day. After London he joins the mouthwatering line up at the highly anticipated Return at Hoppetosse event in Berlin, where he will share the decks with artists such as Zip, Onur Ozer and Fumiya Tanaka.
An in-store gig at Phonica is the perfect way to start a weekend, and a great opportunity to listen to your favourite DJs spin tracks in such an intimate location. Bring your own Beer, browse through Phonica’s collection and feast your ears on some fantastic music!
