Join us on Saturday, March 25, at 9:00 PM at the Cave for a benefit for the Orange County Rape Crisis Center. The Cave is located at 452 W Franklin St, Chapel Hill, NC 27516.
Mighty Neighborly presents Selector Dub Narcotic at The Cave. ￼Selector Dub Narcotic’s debut album is an exercise in ecstatic genre-smashing, blending and up-ending. Calvin Johnson (musician) of Beat Happening, Dub Narcotic Sound System, The Halo Benders and most recently The Hive Dwellers (as well as K Records) has been working under the nom de plume Selector Dub Narcotic since founding the Dub Narcotic Studio in 1993.
This Party Is just Getting Started is a collaboration with NW hip hop producer Smoke M2D6, who first began working with K producing the All Your Friend’s Friends [KLP255] compilation. As a member of the Oldominion crew Smoke M2D6 has produced almost every major hip hop artist in Washington and Oregon. This Party Is just Getting Started began with the song “All for the Sake of Rhymin’” (which samples K artist Mahjongg) and snowballed into an entire album of dance pop garage soul with Calvin’s trademark melodica wafting overall.
Since founding the legendary independent label K Records in 1982, Calvin Johnson has recorded and released music by artists such as: Beck, Modest Mouse, Gossip, Built to Spill, and The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion as well as releasing his own music with the groups mentioned above.
Additional artists TBA.
