Crate Diggers PDX Spotlight: Danny Krivit

Danny Krivit

Crate Diggers, presented by Discogs and Grimy!, kicks off it’s third year in Portland, OR, this Saturday, August 27th, 2016. Record fair featuring 30+ vendors and 8 DJs by day, and after party featuring DJs Danny Krivit and Ron Trent by night, this event is built for you to dig and dance from noon till the wee hours. A certified DJ legend in his 45th year of spinning wax for the discerning dance floor, headliner Danny Krivit was kind enough to share some “random songs I play quite often” in alphabetical order by title, in anticipation of the event.

Danny Krivit's picks: The Hayden Andre Project ‎– Tribal Life

The Hayden Andre Project ‎– Tribal Life

Great sounding classic Deep House, never seem to get tired of it.

Danny Krivit's picks: Chez Damier ‎– Can You Feel It

Chez Damier ‎– Can You Feel It

Another great sounding classic Deep House track that I hear a little more often, but always manages to get people up.

Danny Krivit's picks: James Brown ‎– Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose (Live)

James Brown ‎– Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose (Live) (from Sex Machine)

I saw him do this same live show at Madison Square Garden in 1970, and in all these years of playing, this one record has probably stuck with me perhaps more than any other.

Danny Krivit's picks: Soho ‎– Hot Music

Soho – Hot Music

Pal Joey has this great edge to his sound, this was always a dancer’s track.

Danny Krivit's picks: Maydie Myles ‎– Keep On Luvin

Maydie Myles ‎– Keep On Luvin (Deep Love Mix)

Underrated fabulous singer, this version is really tight…great jam.

Danny Krivit's picks: D.J. Camacho ‎– Renegade

D.J. Camacho ‎– Renegade (The Dance Tracks *Fugitive Version*)

Out of all the Joe Claussell jams, this is the one I’ve probably played the most. Timeless.

Danny Krivit's picks: The Blackbyrds ‎– Rock Creek Park

The Blackbyrds ‎– Rock Creek Park (from City Life)

Great party starter, Merry Clayton kills it in the end.

Danny Krivit's picks: Lorraine Johnson ‎– The More I Get, The More I Want

Lorraine Johnson ‎– The More I Get, The More I Want

Super rare 12” Promo, wonderfully dramatic remix by Rafael Charres. I don’t take it out often, but love playing it.

Danny Krivit's picks: Chyna With Perfect World ‎– U Know That I Love U

Chyna With Perfect World ‎– U Know That I Love U

Very much a pet song. I always play this song with my heart.

Crate Diggers PDX takes place on Saturday, August 27th, 2016 at the White Owl Social Club and will feature a record fair from noon to 6, followed by an after party featuring DJs Danny Krivit, Ron Trent, and Zernell.
