FLIP PHONE XXL IN THE MAINROOM

We recently caught up with DJ Fancy Restaurant for a Q&A. Check it out below! You can catch him in the Mainroom on Saturday, August 1st, for Flip Phone XXL.

Q: Which “flip phone era” bangers are you most excited to spin in the Mainroom?

A:
I have a soft spot for Beyonce and Sean Paul’s “Baby Boy,” it always
gets the crowd moving. I also can’t wait to play Robyn’s “Call Your
Girlfriend,” it’s fun to see everyone re-enact the music video. Other
favorites: “Get Ur Freak On” by Missy Elliott and “Bossy” by Kelis.

Q: Tell us about your favorite experience in the Mainroom.

A:
There are too many to write down! It would have to be when I saw
Janelle Monae perform and Prince was dancing to her in the box. You
could feel the energy and excitement in the room. Other top experiences:
Robyn, Cut Copy and Paul Simon.

Q: TLC or Destiny’s Child?

A:
This is the most difficult question! TLC’s Creep is one of my all-time
favorite jams. However, Destiny’s Child is always a 100% guarantee to
get the party started, they had so many great hits. Can it be a tie!?

Record Store Day 2015 with TV On The Radio

Record Store Day 2015

“This is the most I’ve ever participated in Record Store Day,” said TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe. He is not referring to the limited edition single that his band released for this year’s annual global vinyl celebration, but something much more intimate: he is sitting across a table sketching a caricature of me.

This mind-blowing promotion is part of Amoeba Records’ Record Store Day celebration at Space15Twenty, on the other side of Sunset Boulevard from the bustling Los Angeles music emporium. The event featured the caricature session with Adebimpe and Julian Gross (the album artist for TVOTR’s “Seeds”) while the band’s Dave Sitek DJs.” - billboard
