Circa 2000, the four members of Soulico were just friends that loved records, liked to party and had stockpiled massive collections of rare and unique Middle Eastern vinyl. DJs Sabbo, Rob, Shimmy Sonic and Wido would sometimes spin together, but mostly alone, rocking beats that masterfully fused hip hop, reggae and dancehall to Israeli folk and disco from the 1970's. The excitement surrounding their eclectic sound was more akin to that of the underground club scene budding in Europe than anything the Middle East had experienced prior. They decided to throw a party as a group, pooling the genius of four radical DJs into one red-hot set. But what to call it?
(((SHAKE))) is happy to welcome Soulico this Thursday!!
We are also celebrating Manny Duran's birthday--
Come to the back patio for some body art painting by artist Moises Exposito; bring a bathing suit to complement the hot Miami weather and get painted to then dance the night away.
