Motown stands as easily one of the most important and influential record labels of all time. Distinctive and yet difficult to define, the “Motown sound” can mean different things depending on the context and perspective. For the last seven years, a collective of DJs has been celebrating and expanding on the Motown catalog under the Motown On Mondays (or MoM) banner. The weekly party series began in San Francisco and has expanded to numerous cities across the country, as well as an ongoing collection of custom remixes, edits and re-interpretations. The MoM approach is a broad and inclusive one, incorporating originals, custom remixes, cover versions, and close relatives of the Motown sound for a party that pays tribute to the label’s legacy while contextualizing the music for modern dance floors.

Monday April 4th sees the launch of Motown on Mondays BK at Bed-Vyne Brew (370 Tompkins Ave) in Bed-Stuy. DJs Tara, Tap.10, Mawkus, Still Life & Dstrukt comprise the dream team resident DJ line-up, and special guests are sure to be showing up as well. The party begins at 6:00 PM and ends at midnight, giving you a chance to get loose to quality music without losing sleep at the beginning of the week. With just a week left until the party launches, the MoM BK crew is taking over Mixtape Mondays with an exclusive mix of their own, as well as a round-up of other mixes that are worth checking for. – DJ Still Life
