Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Mosart212 is the producer of the podcast Symphony Sessions(http://brooklynradio.com/symphony-sessions/) on BrooklynRadio.com, as well as one half of the world famous mixtape duo La MoDa Mixtapes (archives at - http://lamodamixtapes.blogspot.com). He has dj’ed in NYC, Boston, DC, Cleveland, San Fran, Seattle, and Rochester NY! International crowds have caught him in Nairobi, Amsterdam, and the Dominican Republic. Ask him to tell you the crazy story about one night he dj’ed in Amsterdam...which involves a shirtless guy with an apron giving out straight-razor shaves... a mountain of cocaine... and a badly dubbed Dennis Hopper movie he has not seen or heard of since that night. His sets feature breaks, funk, and rare finds from far corners of the globe. Mosart212 (aka Maria JoséButter, aka Boston Blackie) is a prolific creator of bad-ass funky symphonies for the post-modern era. While he’s a DJ’s DJ, he’s also so much more: composer, rabblerouser, crate-digger, beatsmith, Baseball Fury, teacher, curator, writer, bargain-hunter, philosopher, boogaloo shrimp, hep cat, and all-around artiste. One week you might get a downtempo pastiche of blunted sounds and lonesome beats, the next you might hear a set full of early proto-house and handclapping, footstomping nu-disco and boogie music. Mosart212 will go there. Anywhere. Anytime.
