Mr. V

Editorial Review

When Mr. V (listen) is on the set, hip-house is no longer solely an '80s phenomenon. His sound combines the soul of his mentor Louie Vega with deep classic club beats and rapping that you generally don't find on today's dance scene. Mr. V's partnership with Alix Alvarez in creating the SOLE Channel label has allowed his work to blossom through multiple solo releases. Chris Burns will be opening for the Nuyorican Don at the Trinidad & Tobago Association tonight with the Columbia Heights All-Stars holding down the basement.
