SummerStage X UVS

On July 25th, 2019, in Soundview Park, history was made at SummerStage. This was an important milestone for the DJ collective: Uptown Vinyl Supreme to create their own show and perform it on a professional stage. I attended all of the rehearsals as a fly on the wall, watching everything unfold up until the day of the performance. There were other collectives and individuals as well that shared the stage,

such as the soulful Hip-Hop group “The B.0.0.M”,

DJ Perly: 1st woman to win the USA DMC DJ Champion title,

“Breakfresh”: a crew of talented dancers from NYC,

“Boogie Down All-Stars”: an Africaribbean soulful band,

and DJ Grandwizzard Theodore: the father of scratch.

Working with Uptown Vinyl Supreme consistently for over the course of 2 years has been a pleasure and this was a SummerStage experience that was special for all of us.
