PHILLY AND DETROIT in April

A few things coming up, but they're hot ones!

Throwing down with longtime homie Dev79 my sister-in-bass Anna Morgan and all the philly footwork fiends:


And then off to Detroit at the end of the month with fellow Dutty Artz hermana MPEACH for the amazing and inspiring MOTHER CYBORG's record release party!

Continuing the theme

Pleased to dj, for at least the third time, the Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJNYC) Annual PurimShpil! This great organization pulls together a tremendous spectacle, featuring song, dance, puppets, costumes, and the retelling of Queen Esther's heroism and cleverness with a spin that links it to current issues of the day, from police brutality to water rights to gentrification. The play is followed by bands, hip-hop and finally a set from DJ Ripley until 3am! Here's a write-up of the past few (although they neglect to mention I dj'd many of them): http://jewcy.com/jewish-arts-and-culture/radical-queer-purim-spiel-must-attend



And the next day, another Party With A Purpose, courtesy of a new brooklyn based family-centered progressive group called B-FREE, plus music and dancing from City Stomp, ballet foklorico, and DJ Ripley all support Mixteca, a local immigrants rights organization.


We raised 6,000 for Mixteca!

More music and action to come in 2017.
