ALL NIGHT LONG IS BACK!! Fri June 08 - Sees ALL NIGHT LONG Chapter 6 at The CLF Art Cafe. Featuring DJ AMIR one half of the trailblazing DJ Duo Kon & Amir and head of Internationally renowned 180 Proof Records. DJ AMIR hosting the 6th leg of this on-going series of on-going Impromptu audio marathons. DJ AMIR dropping a rare eclectic set of spanning everything from Jazz to Soul, Gospel to Disco, Hip Hop and beyond.
From an early age, Amir's ears were saturated with the sounds of jazz, gospel, soul, and disco coming from his parents' stereo. When he got old enough, Amir escaped into the world of hip - op. But instead of the clean break he had intended, he discovered his parents' music sampled in the music of his peers. Intrigued, Amir found himself tracing ties inside the music, soon tirelessly.
Amir has been a man on a mission ever since. He's braved strange and dangerous locations for the rarest wax, dealt with the shadiest characters and collectors, and had his knowledge called upon by some of the biggest names in hip-hop. It was kismet that Amir would meet fellow crate digger and kindred spirit Kon in 1996, and the two became fast friends and collaborators. Beginning with the esteemed underground On Track mix tape series, Kon & Amir have released ten compilations, including four volumes of Off Track, the follow-up to the On Track series. Shady Records, Pete Rock, Diamond D, and Capitol Records (to name a few) have called upon Kon & Amir's expertise.
As half of Kon & Amir, and on his own, Amir has toured the world, building an underground following into a worldwide network of fanatical fans. In a world where anybody with a laptop, or even an iPod, fancies themselves a DJ, Amir is here to keep the true tradition of the DJ alive.
