Herbert Holler has been a full-time DJ for the last 10 years, playing at just about every dance club in NYC. From Tribeca to Harlem, from Brooklyn to the Bronx, Herbert Holler’s seamless, highly sought-after mix of dance music from the ’60s through today continues to be the most buzzed about, hottest set in town, packing dance floors till the wee hours at both posh bottle lounges and big dance clubs alike. A hip-hop kid since “Rappers Delight,” Herbert’s connection to the music and its message is evident through his mix of classic rap, r&b, reggae and rock records from yesterday through today. A disco freak since discovering his dad’s Salsoul vinyl in the attic, Herbert’s sick selection of 70s classics sound as fresh as they did the day they broke, and you won’t even notice when he moves into the 80s, hitting the best records the decade had to offer. Herbert has recently hit the House and Dance scene hard with his own brand of energetic, underground, techy, progressive, global yet always soulful mix of new dance-music must-haves. (His well received “My House Vol 2” mix was featured on MusicChoice’s Dance channel, hitting over four million homes across the US, and “My House Vol 3” has just been released to critical acclaim.) And mashing it up isn’t something new to Herbert: It’s something he’s always done at just about every gig for the better part of the last decade, playing an open-format mix of songs chosen on-the-spot, never pre-mixed or pre-arranged.
Herbert Holler is also very well known for his reviews of music, clubs, restaurants and fashion, in the now 10 years-and-running weekly email distribution, “The Herbert Holler.” Reaching an estimated 28,000-plus inboxes, “the Holler” can be found on every desktop and laptop in the industry, in every trendsetter’s “Saved” folder, a part of every mover and shaker’s weekly must-read. It lists the best parties New York City nightlife has to offer, a list of Herbert Holler’s own gigs, some editorial, and a Top 20 song selection. His database of contacts spans back to 1994, when Herbert Holler moved to the Big Apple and plotted his course, a path that’s been paved to other cities, like Chicago, Miami, D.C., Philadelphia, Atlanta and Cleveland, and other countries, like Japan, France, Costa Rica, England, Canada, Mexico, St. Maarten and Ireland.
Today, Herbert Holler continues to wreak havoc at night. The number of “Herbert Holler” recipients continues to grow, as do NYC-based party brands Herbert is responsible for: “The Freedom Dance Party,” NYC’s longest running weekly Friday night dance party, now in its 10th year, recent winner of Papermag’s “Best Party of 2010 (Peoples Choice)” and nominated for “Best Party of 2010” (nationwide) by URB Magazine, and “My House,” Herbert Holler’s new home for house music, electronica, global rhythms and disco classics. In addition, Herbert continues to work with some of music’s biggest artists, spinning for legendary names like Boyz II Men, Blondie, Q Tip from a Tribe Called Quest, Questlove from the Roots, underground house-music maven Lil’ Louie Vega, Anthony Hamilton, Barrington Levy and many more. His client list includes AOL, Cosmopolitan, Diageo, Grey Goose, Jamie Foxx, Jessica Biel, the NAACP, the New York Times, Tracy Morgan and Virgin Atlantic Airways, to name a few.

Grammy award winning trumpet virtuoso/super-producer Maurice “Mobetta” Brown enters 2012 with a wealth of projects, recording dates and concert appearances that will keep his fans abuzz with anticipation.
Later this year, Maurice will release the follow-up to his critically acclaimed sophomore release, “The Cycle of Love” (Brown Records). This project will again feature his dynamic quintet, the Maurice Brown Effect, who recorded the Cycle of Love, one of 2010′s cutting edge jazz recordings. When Maurice picks up his horn, his trademark soulful melodies soar into a rarefied space that uniquely marries traditional be-bop to hip-hop, producing a sound where neither genre is watered down.
In the two years since Cycle of Love hit the music world with full force, Maurice has balanced a tightly packed schedule of live appearances with in-depth studio recordings. 2011 saw the touring debut of the rock blues chart toppers, the Tedeschi-Trucks Band after the release of their debut album Revelator (Sony Masterworks), which recently won a 2012 Grammy. Maurice is the horn arranger for the 11-piece band. The year long tour spanned more than 100 cities in the United States, twenty-five countries in Europe, Asia, and South America as well as late-night national appearances on Conan O’Brien and the Tonight show. Maurice has also been hard at work on a remix album of “The Cycle of Love”, titled “Maurice vs. Mobetta” (Brown Records, to be released in this summer). This dynamic album features some of today’s top producers & artist who partner with Maurice on a groundbreaking, track by track remix that solidifies him as one of the trailblazers who weds jazz to hip-hop. Additionally, Maurice produced “Self Savior”, the last track on Talib Kweli’s latest release “Gutter Rainbows” and is working with the legendary Prodigy (of Mobb Deep). In April, Maurice will begin a 6-week European tour with the pre-eminent bassist, Marcus Miller, before hitting the road with both Tedeschi-Trucks and his own groups, the Maurice Brown Effect and Mobetta & Soul’d U Out.
Eight years after his highly celebrated debut album “HIP TO BOP” hit the jazz world with a staggering, original sound, Brown continues to explore and expand all musical boundaries. His intuitive musical vision lights a fire under traditional jazz, adds sonic horn playing to rock n’ roll and pushes the production edge in hip-hop & r&b to new creative heights.
