Ali Shaheed Muhammad
Ali is known around the world as one-third of the legendary hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest , but he began his musical career in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York. Ali then spent years DJ-ing parties in his Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood and recorded a slew of demos before co-founding Tribe in 1985 with Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, and Jarobi. Tribe, however, is just one representation of Ali's talent. He's worked with a wide range of artists, including Faith Evans, Mos Def, and D'Angelo, the last of whom he collaborated on the Grammy-nominated single, Brown Sugar, in 1995. In 1999 he co-founded the star trio Lucy Pearl, aligning with Dawn Robinson, formerly of En Vogue, and Raphael Saadiq, of Tony! Toni! Toné! Lucy Pearl fused funk, rock, R&B and hip-hop to create an organic, sexy sound that was unprecedented at the time and still unmatched today. The group's self-titled debut album produced the hits Don't Mess With My Man, and Dance Tonight, the latter nominated for a Grammy in the best vocal performance by a duo or group category.

Ali has also built up a solo career, beginning with his 2004 debut LP Shaheedulah and Stereotypes, featuring the dance song All Night. Ali keeps busy by performing as a DJ around the globe, reaching music fans of all types, each gig adding to the journey he started as an 8-year-old in Brooklyn.



Tuckahoe
Tucker Hill, (aka Tuckahoe) is a Brooklyn based DJ and promoter known for his eclectic DJ sets and his immersive late night DIY parties throughout the city. It's hard to put a pin on his style as he floats effervescently between infinite points of interest. He's seemingly a clairvoyant magician when it comes to his dance floor wizardry, his ability to embody the collective energy of a party and guide them where they've always wanted to go, regardless of origin or destination, is a truly special experience lost on the heels of the laptop DJ scene.
