Kevin Powell is widely considered one of America’s most important voices in these early years of the 21st century. Legendary feminist Gloria Steinem asserts that “as a charismatic speaker, leader, and a very good writer, Kevin Powell has the courage…to be fully human, and this will bring the deepest revolution of all.” Of Kevin Powell the writer asha bandele says “When you consider the intelligence and breadth of Kevin Powell’s writing and activism, you come to the conclusion that there may be no better spokesperson and representative for a generation that has too long been counted out.”
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.
