In July we’re collaborating with the one and only, DJ Chicken George, aka Mr. Jazztronica, for a special edition of Body Rock. Last Summer, I played a guest set at CG’s Stevie Wonder themed night appropriately dubbed, Hotter Than July. Well this year we’re turning up the heat! Chicken George & Body Rock are teaming up on First Friday in July to bring you the 2013 edition of Hotter than July: A Stevie Wonder Tribute.
Stevie is always in rotation at Body Rock but this month we’ll pay special tribute to the man and his musical legacy. We’ll go back through his impressive musical catalog, which spans 5 decades, with a heavy dose of Stevie hits, covers, compositions, and music from other artists inspired by Stevie Wonder. $5 cover || FB || do512
Practically everybody knows Stevie Wonder’s music, especially the ubiquitous classics, but the man was responsible for so much music that many have never heard. So in an effort to increase your Stevie Wonder musical IQ, I highly recommend the following mix by DJ Spinna. This mix is from 2001, and is probably the precursor to Spinna’s highly successful Wonder-Full tribute parties. Highly recommended!
