Really good stuff here! We also love the fact that they take production and live performances VERY seriously. These guys are definitely NOT button pushers, hiding behind pre-mixed tracks. It’s great to see artists with integrity who are in the game to IMPROVE the game. Check ’em out! –J. Medley

Vinyl Life – comprised of true New York City boys Butcha, Phaze Future and Richie Roxx – understand the power of a live show. Blending the worlds of electronic house music and classic Hip-Hop, Vinyl Life have carved out a niche of their own at a time when live and actively touring acts are few and far between. With just a few EP and single releases under their belt, Vinyl Life has already brought their unique live show to venues across the United States and international territories.
Keeping with the “old school vibe” and love of classic Hip-Hop, Vinyl Life produces with real instruments and hardware both in the studio and on stage. It’s the “gear-only” philosophy that gives Vinyl Life a sound like no other and their studio tracks have a live feel because they are produced in a dub style – the mixing board is the main instrument. Club audiences love seeing Vinyl Life create live house music on stage with an energy and vibe that no single DJ could supply.
Beyond the music production, Vinyl Life’s Phil Moffa is also a contributing editor for dance music’s longest running magazine DJ Times; its sister publication Club World Magazine; and is a Production Master Class Instructor at State University Of New York at Purchase (all three Vinyl Life members also graduated from the school). BTW – He also once lent his classic Roland TR-909 to Detroit techno legend Jeff Mills for a live performance. When not slammin’ the keys in Vinyl Life Richie Roxx showcases his indietronic sides in Nite Club, while Phaze Future smokes it with Harlem-based Hip-Hop act Smash Mechanics.
So, this is a little introduction for the masses. A way to whet your appetites for what’s coming around the bend – that is, a debut Vinyl Life artist album and tour. Set for a summer 2009 release on Vinyl Life’s own Tape Theory label, the music reflects the varying tastes of its three members and traverses multiple genres including house, Hip-Hop, hip-house, electro and reggae. This is music made from the heart and from the streets of NYC as guided by oldie-but-goodie machines.
