with my guest H Boogie in the studio

March 22, 2016

Several months ago, Manley (the afternoon/evening guy) passed me his neighbor’s number. He said he always sees him dragging DJ gear and records in, returning from gigs at ungodly hours. Manley had no idea what he plays, but thought I should find out if he’d make a good guest on Subtronic.

Finally I got around to giving this guy Howie a shout and we met for some beers. Turns out he’s a lifelong New York resident with a massive record collection with a love for House and all things boogie. In my experience, seasoned DJs hailing from cities with a Dance music heritage throw down, so I invited Howie into the studio and he did exactly that.

A solid mix of new and old groovers played out on the vinyl we love. If you want to hear more, find him fourth Saturday’s at Vermillion where he throws the Spread Thick boogie parties. That’s this weekend so grab your dancing shoes and go break a sweat. Here’s a little about him and the playlist from Saturday night:

Meet H Boogie, recent Seattle transplant, but Brooklyn for life. His early influences were house music from New York, Chicago, and Detroit. He started collecting vinyl at an early age like any proper raver would then worked at Satellite Records for some time.  Originally, he started DJing house parties for friends and eventually moved to holding down residence in SOHO with a both weekly and party series called Hump, which lead to 14 years dDJng and residences at bars and nightclubs in Williamsburg including Rose Bar, Bedford Stuyvesant at Littleton, Red Hook at Sugar lounge, and lower east side at Porch.
