Search By Tag: Michael The Lion

Formerly known as DJ Apt One, Philadelphia based Michael Fichman now goes under the moniker Michael The Lion, he is staple within the Philly music scene and is involved with among others the Soul Clap Records and the Razor N’ Tape crews. His productions showcases his warm and fuzzy feelings for disco, soul and funk.

This exclusive mix done for us here at Discobelle includes lots of his own edits and productions alongside some disco classics to create a funked up, soulful and practically unstoppable mix that will make sure to turn your listening session into a partyfilled affair wherever you may be.

The mix also includes two new songs from the forthcoming Michael The Lion vinyl EP which will be released via Soul Clap Records in April. One of the songs is the amazing “Get It On” (featuring Amy Douglas on vocal duties) and can be downloaded for free below.

Brooklyn’s disco haven, Razor-N-Tape, are back with their latest slab courtesy of Michael The Lion (aka DJ Apt One). His latest collection of DJ friendly edits kicks off with “Anytime,” a funky, sing-along heater with heavy percussion and jangly keys. Next up, “The Don” takes things international with a cheeky little disco groove, latin vocals and vintage synth riffs while “Get More” is a hard-funk treatment of a classic Teddy Pendergrass tune. Wrapping things up, Michael enlists the talents of fellow Brooklynite, Sammy Bananas, to rework Herb Albert’s most “hypnotizing” effort to date on “909s and Herb.”
