Classic New York producer/DJ Pete Rock aka Soul Brother #1 revolutionized rap and is one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time. He is often mentioned alongside DJ Premier, RZA and J Dilla because of his impeccable recording career, collaborating with Nas, Common, Mary J. Blige, Ghostface Killa, Busta Rhymes, Public Enemy and Run-DMC.
In the early '90s, Pete rose to prominence as one half of the critically acclaimed group Pete Rock & CL Smooth, merging elements from jazz into hip hop, alongside artists like Stetsasonic, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and Gang Starr.
As New York City's premier Monday night event for the last two years, the Hudson has consistently seen a curated roster of DJ legends and pioneering artists as wide-ranging as Louie Vega, Afrika Bambaataa, Jazzanova, Bobbito and Danny Krivit, playing styles from soulful house, Latin, hip hop, jazz, funk and more.
