Producer and DJ Shigeto gives us a tour of his home city of Detroit, and tells us all about the best local labels, where to find the greatest wings, and much more.
Come and visit, you can crash at the crib.
Way too many to list... there are more good labels here than grocery stores. Here's a few: Mike Banks, John Collins/U.R., Carl Craig/Planet E, Derrick May/Transmat, Wajeed/Dirt Tech Reck, Theo Parrish/Sound Signature, Moodymann/Mahogani, Kyle Hall/Wild Oats, Jay Daniel/Watusi High, Scott Grooves, Sterling Toles, BMG, Erika/I.T., Danny Brown, Zelooperz/Bruiser Brigade, MGUN, Black Noi$e, Omar-S, Scott Zacharias, and FIT SOUND.
El Club on Vernor Highway, a relatively new venue has been having some great shows. TV Lounge has been a great place as well and funny enough, Takoi, a really nice Thai place has a sweet club attached to it run by a good friend of mine and very talented DJ Ali Berger.
Some DIY after hours spot... most recently the Sound Signature 20 Year Anniversary Party. Always the best vibes when you do it yourself.
Your front stoop.
"You can buy a house for a dollar."
Car... Motor City.
"Whatupdoe", a question/greeting - "Hi, What's going on? How are you?"
My home. Dequindre Cut.
All the stigma attached to it. For better or for worse.
