BORSCHT! Featuring MC SoCalled’s Hip Hop Klezmer, plus Yuri Lane
MC Socalled, aka Josh Dolgin, was an uber-nerd, Yiddophile and part time Klezmer accordionist who made curiously fresh beats in his basement apartment. Those beats became the basis of THE SO CALLED SEDER: A HIP HOP HAGGADAH, CD recorded, produced and mastered in NYC featuring cameos by Wu Tang Clan’s Killa Priest, Hasidic Reggae singer Matisyahu, Mr. Bungle’s Trevor Dunn, David Krakauer and Susan Hoffman Watts.

This mini symphony of hip-hop beats and old Jewish record samples centered around the Passover Seder has now hit the road. Dolgin combines hip hop beats with samples taken from old Jewish LP’s, then shakes up the formula by adding live klezmer musicians into the mix for a dance party sound with mad Yiddish flavah!
Socalled has been featured in dozens of publications like the Forward, and The New York Times Arts section this month. Human Beat Box Yuri Lane will set the scene with his one-man one-mic magic and unreal beat technique.
