Adv tix available online at:
Y-Love (Yitz Jordan) is an MC unlike any other. Having converted to Orthodox Judaism in 2000, and later taking on the traditions of Hasidism (the mystical branch of Orthodox Judaism). He is among the most innovative freestylers on the scene, weaving seamless polyglot rhymes in English, Arabic, Yiddish, and Hebrew. Most unique is Y-Love's revival of Aramaic, the language used to discuss Jewish Law and Kabbalah. With each word he spits in the tongue of ancient Babylon, Y-Love breathes new life into hip-hop, one beat at a time.
Jake Break is a souled-out independently affiliated producer. His music bridges Afro Beat, Brazilian jazz and funk rhythms with layers of instruments that stray from your cousin's boom-bap loops. His style is 60's pleats, hairgreased, and satin sheets, 8o's turbo creased, 70's jazz-fusion funked out, 90's bubble fat geese-tommy hilfiger fleece. Basically, he's a record fiend, with vast quanties of tight beats and records of generational genre smashing musicians.
The brains behind Modular Moods and many of the hyped parties in and around NYC, dj handler's music defies stereotypes. He frequently includes collaborations with non-electronic musicians, creating textural fusions of live and recorded sound. He references Ashkenazic cantorial music, traditional Yemenite melodies and hip hop. dj handler is a multi cultural maestro that spins a mix of Baile Funk and Afro Beat blended with 80's free style and hip hop, which gets the most famous US clubs to resemble the craziest festivals abroad.
Erez (dj handler) currently runs Modular Mood Records, an independent record label that produces a variety of hip-hop, rock and klezmer-jazz bands. Modular Moods began in Washington, D.C., but has since moved to New York City where it continues to thrive and collaborate with other artists and organizations all across the board, such as The Workmen's Circle, DJ Rekha, MC Paul Barman, Daniel Carter, and Heeb magazine to promote the arts, and specifically a variety of cultures fused with a modern edge. London Radio's 104.4 FM called him, "One of New York's hottest Jewish musicians" and Heeb Magazine listed him in their "Hundred Heeb". He resides and maintains his label, Modular Moods, within the auditory heart of Brooklyn.
