THE BOOM BAP feat: House Shoes


The Boom Bap presents…


Beginning as a monthly hip hop round robin in Nashville TN, The Boom Bap has quickly spun itself into a power house, encompassing multiple city residences and involving some of the worlds foremost party rocking DJs. Three residents are joined by guests DJs and a host, rotating every five songs on two sets of turntables. Records are played and played with. Crowds collectively lose their minds.

Featuring HOUSE SHOES:

Detroit Hip-Hop’s Ambassador to the World, Michael “House Shoes” Buchanan has been an integral part of the long burgeoning Motown resurgence. Just ask anyone coming out of Detroit to confirm this.

House Shoes, a resident DJ at the hip-hop staple St. Andrews Hall, Detroit MI, from 1994-2004 has had personal influence over a full generation of well respected emcees, producers, and then-future DJs. Four-time winner of the “Best Hip Hop DJ” in Detroit, he has used his platform to expose some of the best and brightest talent his city has had to offer.

As a DJ, ‘Shoes has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Europe, and Australia with artists Guilty Simpson, Illa J, Exile, Aloe Blacc, Percee P, Phat Kat, Slum Village and Elzhi, to name a few, as well as on his own, gaining the respect of acts far outside the scope of Detroit hip-hop. House Shoes also performed as tour DJ on Mayer Hawthorne & The County’s Spring 2010 16-city headlining U.S. tour.

As a producer, ‘Shoes has worked with the late and revered J Dilla and Big Proof, Black Milk, Danny Brown, Guilty Simpson, Roc Marciano, Chino XL, Invincible, Finale, MED, Nottz, Alchemist, Big Tone, Oh No, Elzhi, El Da Sensai(Artifacts), Black Spade, Now On(Mayer Hawthorne), and Moe Dirdee, among others.

Two self-produced 10” limited vinyl issues have also been released on Do-Over Records, backed by Flying Lotus, and All-City Records, respectively, and are already rare pieces. Most recently, he produced tracks on Danny Brown’s ‘XXX’ and Quelle’s ‘Shotgun and Sleek Rifle’ albums. His debut long-player “Let It Go”, and its pre-cursor “The Time EP”, are now available worldwide on Tres Records.

Currently he lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Constantly Dj’ing at events and parties from LA to Europe to Australia, Shoes’ is revered as a world class producer and DJ.
