New "What's In My Bag?" Episode With Electronic Producers Prosumer And Hunee

Posted by Amoebite, October 20, 2014 11:20am | Post a Comment
Hunee Prosumer

Prosumer is one of Europe's most renowned House DJ/producers. He was one of the first DJs to play UK Funky white labels, thus helping to break the left-field genre that takes grime, R&B, Dancehall, Dubstep and mashes it over House music. In 2011, Prosumer released Panarama Bar 03 for the Ostgut Ton label and received rave reviews from dance music critics and scenters alike. DJ/producer Hunee (aka Hunch), originally from Berlin but now based in Los Angeles, has released records through various well respected labels, including Permanent Vacation, Rush Hour and Retreat, to name a few. Both DJs are currently on tour in Europe.

Prosumer and Hunee recently visited Amoeba Hollywood and found some really cool records. It's easy to tell these two guys are vinyl pros and they dig deep in the crates! Hunee first picks up a copy of A Synthetic Life by Chicago's own Hieroglyphic Being. Prosumer follows up with a copy of the 94 East's Minneapolis Genius, which was the first official recording to feature a then unknown Prince. Showing their wide tastes in music, Hunee and Prosumer also pick up El Secreto De LAS 12 by World artist Finis Africae and Folk Jazz legend, John Martyn's One World on vinyl. From Electronica to New Age -Experimental Folk, Hunee and Prosumer find some great stuff at Amoeba!

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with DJ A-Trak

Posted by Amoebite, October 15, 2014 06:02pm | Post a Comment

A-Trak

From label executive to GRAMMY nominated producer to lifestyle icon, A-Trak rocks many hats. Literally. Most people in the pop culture world might only know him as Kanye West's personal tour DJ, but that is only one small piece to the multifaceted Alain Macklovitch. At the age of 15, A-Trak became the youngest (and the first Canadian) to win the coveted DMC World DJ Championship title. He holds the distinction of being the first DJ to win all three major DJ competitions (DMC, ITF and Vestax), and was the first to win five World Championships. He's basically the Michael Jordan of the DJ world.

Over the years A-Trak has toured extensively with Kanye West and has lent his skills to the likes of Jay-Z, Common, Lupe Fiasco and Drake. In 2007, he founded the Fool's Gold label and helped launch the careers of Kid Sister, Danny Brown and Kid Cudi. He also developed and published music notation for scratching. Today he's hailed as a go-to tastemaker and collaborates with major brands, lending his image to ad campaigns for Adidas, Grey Goose and Cadillac.
