On September 24th, 2016, Crate Diggers, presented by Discogs and Grimy!, makes its international debut, in Berlin, Germany! Featuring a Record Fair during the day, followed by an all night After Party headlined by Theo Parrish, Marcellus Pittman, and Zernell, Crate Diggers is the ultimate event for record junkies! In anticipation of the event, we caught up with one of the After Party’s opening DJs, Lakuti, who runs the Uzuri record label. Lakuti filled us in on her Top 10 “music for the mind, the body, & the soul.”
This is one of those rare moments where a piece of music can just really cut through your heart and touch you in a very profound way. Universal music that has been doing the business on many diverse dance floors. Each time I have played this, people just want want to know what it is.
The master and purveyor of all things soulful delivers a masterpiece. On vocal duty the fantastic Caron Wheeler.
Created by the inspired young Jared Hines and produced by master minds Ron Trent and Jonesy, it comes with a Ron Trent seal of approval. You know that the level of quality will be next to none; in the great tradition of Jazz-Funk. Watch out for the new EP from the band which is also pure quality.
Twice & Native are like mad scientists. All things good about quality music come together right here in this piece.
A recent rediscovery. It’s amazing what you can find when you decide to sort your records properly after a long time. Justin Chapman on point with this, on the wonderfully put together Neroli imprint by the one and only Volcov, who will be putting out an EP shortly as well, by Just One and DJ Kemit under their Kemetic Just moniker.
Ron Trent doing what he does best, delivering the goods each time.
A bit of a shameless plug here, but happy to put this out to the world and looking forward to having the record finally released after months of waiting due to manufacturing delays. Young Italian producer who has releases on Jamal Moss’s Mathematics label, now gracing the Uzuri catalogue with the first of his two EPs.
