Meet Large Professor - Coming To The Lodge May 31st

Large Professor is the NYC based producer, DJ and MC that demanded the world’s attention from his work on the widely successful A Tribe Called Quest album, “Midnight Marauders.” But it was years beforehand that Large Processor, also known as Extra P or Large Pro, broke into the industry as producer and MC for the group Main Source.

Large Professor soon after became a full-time producer and worked with every monumental act in hip-hop from Big Daddy KaneEric B. & RakimMobb Deep, Grand Puba, and Busta Rhymes, to the Beastie Boys, Slick Rick, Common, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, and Gang Starr, while also serving as mentor and collaborator to Nas. Some say it was his legendary work on Nas’ forever classic Illmatic record that put him in the books as one of the world’s best hip-hop producers. ranked Large Professor #5 on its Top 50 Hip-Hop Producers list.

Whatever Large Professor touches seems destined to become classic and through it all, this Queens auteur continues to push the movement forward whether lacing others or blazing his own path. The Lodge At RedRocks is very excited to have Large Professor on Saturday May 31st for an exclusive DJ set.  Also on the bill is DJ Stylus of The Sol Power All Stars and localy acclaimed DJ/producer, SHARKEY. Doors are at 8pm. As always at The Lodge, NO COVER.

Meet Diamond D - Coming To The Lodge April 26th

Diamond D is a Producer, writer, DJ and Grammy Award winning hip-hop legend. Period.

The first time I was introduced to Diamond D’s work was in 1992 when I heard Brand Nubian’s “Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down.” I was blown away by everything that track included; from the beats and rhymes, to the way its rhythms swung with an aggressive nature mixed with its nonchalant and somewhat effortless delivery. That same year I was blindsided by another record that became one of my favorite tracks of that year, fellow D.I.T.C. members, Showbiz & AG’s “Soul Clap.” Being a DJ myself, when I play these tracks in a club still to this day, its more than just playing classic hip-hop records, it’s like making a statement, telling the crowd that you’re in the know and aware of something that once shook music. These tracks helped change the way a lot of people looked at hip-hop. And definitely helped change the way hip-hop producers made music going forward.

In the years to follow, Diamond D produced classic records for A Tribe Called Quest, Outkast, Fat Joe, Cypress Hill, House of Pain, The Pharcyde, KRS-One, Busta Rhymes, and Mos Def, as well as tracks for The Fugees iconic album, “The Score,” in which Diamond was awarded a Grammy for his contributions.

Diamond D is currently releasing his highly anticipated album “The Diam Piece” which includes guest appearances from Pharoahe Monch, Black Rob, Talib Kweli, A.G., Fat Joe, Pete Rock, Alchemist, Sadat X, Hi-Tek among others (see official trailer to the right). The Lodge At Red Rocks is very happy to have Diamond D on Saturday April 26th alongside Sirius XM radio’s Shade 45 co-host, Sammy Needlz for Diamond’s official, “The Diam Piece” listening party. Come early at 8pm to hear the album and discuss the record with Diamond D himself. Then Sammy Needlz kicks off the dance party at 10pm. 21 & Over. As always, The Lodge is NO COVER.
