US West Coast House Biz

A long time friend of mine, brother in music, and former Pittsburgher Vincent Intrieri has been busy over the last year. After living in Hawaii for a while, he relocated to San Diego and is now setting up shop in southern California to bring some of that Midwest style of dance music to the area. I have known Vinnie for somewhere close to twenty years. His time in Pittsburgh included running an afterhours at Shadow Lounge with John Eperjesi, playing at all the real house music nights like Havana Thursdays and The All-Star Game, and getting banned from the club for socking a DJ for playing trance. This is a cat who knows his shit.

His new label Vicente Sounds is digital only for now, and kicked off with releases by Nigel One & Joel Oliver as well as Brian Nance. The next release is by Loftsoul & Miruga entitled California Deep, and to celebrate its January 27th release he is bringing Loftsoul aka Uchikawa Masahiko over to the US for some dates. You may know his name from having done jams with cats like Glenn Underground and Ricardo Miranda. Having caught him DJing at last year’s Excursions afterparty in Detroit over DEMF weekend, I can definitely say it will be worth it to go check him out. He knows how to play that real deepness. Vinnie and Uchikawa will both be playing in LA as well as San Diego. Check those links for more information and see how Japan and Pittsburgh come together at the midway point and smash California. Tell them Pipecock says “Hello”….
