Prince Paul & DJ Platurn Mini-Set & Signing at Amoeba Berkeley

Prince Paul & DJ Platurn Mini-Set & Signing

Amoeba Berkeley – March 24th @ 4:00pm

Join us in welcoming Hip-hop legend Prince Paul and renowned turntablist DJ Platurn to Amoeba Berkeley on Saturday, March 24th at 4pm for a mini-set and signing! DJ Platurn’s new album Breaking The Ice releases on March 23rd. Buy it at Amoeba Berkeley to get it signed.

Breaking the Ice is an extended mix of rare—mostly never before heard—Icelandic tracks that are heavily underscored with funk, soul, disco, and in-the-pocket rhythms, all of which are expertly mixed by DJ Platurn. The music presented has been compiled through a lifetime of collecting, while others have been passed down through Platurn’s familial, musical roots. The packaging includes rare photos, via Platurn’s father Magnus Thordarson, and other ephemera from Iceland’s small yet vibrant music scene during the late 1960s thru the early 1980s. The release also features extensive liner notes by longtime music journalist David Ma, couching the music’s history as well and the region’s bygone era in which it arose.

Prince Paul — DJ, Producer, man of mystery, crime fighter, people’s champion, Hip-hop skit pioneer, producer of three Grammy Award-winning albums, and so much more — has been behind Hip-Hop’s most creative projectss including The Gravediggaz, Handsomeboy Modeling School, The Dix, Stetsasonic, Dew Doo Man, De La Soul, Negroes on Ice, and DDS. Paul considers himself quiet, quirky, and humble. “I didnt see this coming”…I thought I was going to be a postman.”
