RUB-A-GRUB feat. DJ Akalepse @ Do or Dine Backyard // Labor Day Wknd // Sunday 8/31
Do or Dine and Sound Liberation Front are teaming up again for "Rub-A-Grub", a food and music backyard party featuring DJ Akalepse (Truth & Soul/ Plane Jane) and DJ Still Life (STR8 West Coastin/ Worldwide Smash) and a three part menu crafted by Do or Dine's chefs.

Continuing the good vibes from Memorial Day's sold out "Rub-A-Grub", Do or Dine and SLF are celebrating the end of summer with another beats-meets-bites backyard party. The event will kick-off in the afternoon and feature three rounds of food and drinks, each coupled with different DJ sets. There will be drink specials and a unique food menu by Do or Dine's chef, Justin Warner.

Obsessive crate digger DJ Akalepse is known for running the full spectrum of soul music. Together with Rich Medina, he hosts the widely respected weekly NYC party PROPS. Before that he was Resident DJ at the legendary & now closed NY Venue APT. Coming up as a Battle DJ, Lepse learned early the importance of moving the crowd. His humility and endless respect for music has garnered him accolades in soul, funk and hip hop circles the world over. With a heavyweight stash of 20,000+ records he plays classic tunes right next to obscurities, always pushing the listening audience a little in a sincere effort to break new records and reintroduce slept on tunes simultaneously. Akalepse has also put his vinyl passion into his role as label manager/ A&R of Brooklynbased Truth & Soul Records, famous for releasing hot wax from artists like El Michel's Affair or Lee Fields.

DJ Still Life is a member of a dwindling tribe: DJs who learned the craft on turntables and vinyl, and were raised on dubbed mix cassettes in the rapid fire cut-and-paste tradition of the Bronx forefathers. Whether spinning golden era hip-hop, brand new electronic productions, vintage rarities, or club essentials, Still Life puts a premium on presentation and inventive mixing. His current regular gigs include a throwback boogaloo party Jackpot! with DJ Small Change, and a summertime West Coast hip-hop daytime BBQ.

Do or Dine has been paving an innovative culinary trail in Bed-Stuy since in 2011, receiving wide acclaim for their fun and eccentric approach to cuisine or "fine diving" as the owners coined it. NY Magazine notes, "nothing is as straightforward as it seems. There are (savory) doughnuts stuffed with foie gras mousse, and fried dumplings under a veil of melted cheese an Asian-fied play on nachos."

Sound Liberation Front has been hosting music events in Brooklyn since 2007. From underground parties to large scale productions, SLF events have been featured by NPR, Time Out NY, Village Voice and National Geographic. Last year's Coney Island Reggae Beach Party was featured in the 101 Best Things To Do This Summer and Top 5 Waterfront Events by Time Out NY.
