DJ ICEY "FOR THE LOVE OF THE BEAT" TOUR-ZONE RECORDS-ORLANDO
DJ Icey, America's foremost breaks DJ/producer, releases For the Love of the Beat – a new mix compilation hitting streets late April – on Zone Records / System Recordings. The 72-minute DJ mix features exclusive Icey productions, remixes and re-edits, “The album is similar to my live sets where ninety percent of what I spin is exclusive material. I wanted everything on this mix to be tunes I've produced, remixed, or re-edited,” Icey says. Visually, the packaging is a throwback to the halcyon days of the 1960s, complete with liner notes and hand-drawn type. “ I wanted to capture the look and feel of the records that I find all of the time when I am digging through the crates at Thrift Stores, you always seem to find that one Herb Albert and Tijuana Brass album which directly influenced the artwork.
