20yrs ago, we took the world by storm with the new sound of Philadelphia. Sylk130 was a collective of the best of the best singers and musicians that frequented the Back2Basics events at Silk City.
While I was on tour with Digable Planets, I started working on the album concept and ideas. When The Funk Hits The Fan was the result, an 'audiobiography' of a life of a dj growing up in Philadelphia in the 70s. The album went on to sell 500k worldwide without crazy marketing, but from great publicity from Sony. Then word of mouth took over.
Then 3 years later, I completed Re-Member's Only which featured everyone from De La Soul and Kathy Sledge to Alison Moyet and Grover Washington Jr.. This was my ode to the 80s before the trend to do this era.
So, I am pleased to present the only live reunion show featuring all the original members September 4th at TLA.
Afterparty will be Back2Basics at Silk City.
There will also be a new release of hits and misses called "So What Happened Was..." that will be released later in September.
