Friday 12th promises to be another musically charged night as Turntables On The Hudson returns with DJ Smash & DJ Center as your deck generals for the night. Manhattan’s DJ Smash (or Wayne Hunter to his mum) is an internationally respected DJ, music producer and project consultant, with an amazing list of remix credits to his name including reworking singles by such legendary figures as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Bobby McFerrin, Roy Ayers, Herbie Hancock, Donald Byrd and Dizzy Gillespie. The man with the Midas touch for reimaging classics from the past and transforming them into contemporary offerings that bridge the generation divide is partnered for Turntables On The Hudson with the equally eclectic DJ Center. The Romanian-born, New York-bred artist first cut his teeth on '90s hip-hop, despite being mentored as a jazz musician. “With that foundation, I never separated music by genres. My influences were, and still are, wide open,” states Center, reflecting on his musical upbringing and insatiable appetite for rap, jazz and hard-bop with a global outlook and immigrant roots. Next up is his production debut with the album, ‘Everything In Time’ – a ride across multiple genres, woven by lush piano chords, warm basslines, boom-bap drum patterns, flying tambourines and soaring horns. A night of seductive funk grooves and edifyingly rich sonic soundscapes are promised.
