Hunnypot Live #282


Hot Tub Johnnie and the HP Radio crew kicked off 2014 with a blazin' show last week at The Mint. Hot Tub treated us to new gems by The Dollyrots, Future Of The Left, Awfully Awesome, Future and much more.

Renowned LA based supervisor, Alyson Vidoli of GO Music Supervision joined us for a special interview/DJ Set. Alyson delivered an exceptional set of her current favorites over the past year til' now. Some highlights off her playlist wereFoster The People, Mansions On The Moon, Sharon Jones, Phantogram and much more.

Our next special guest of the night was none other than Detroit's own DJ Godfather. A true pioneer in the DJ world and known as the originator of Ghettotech, Godfather sat down for an intimate interview before he took over the 1s & 2s. We also had a chance to premiere his new single "Where The Hoes In This House" and "Super Swag".

Kicking off our live performances was LA based (via New Jersey) big screen/broadway actress, singer, Antonique Smith. Miss Smith set it off like no other with her beautiful vocals that soared over the soulful, r&b production layed out. Highlights included her opening track "Speechless" and debut single "Hold Up Wait A Minute (Woo Woo)".

Syracuse, NY based funk/hip hop trio, Sophistafunk was next to hit the stage and they did not disappoint. This multi-genre tour de force completely stole the show and opened up the dancefloor with their electronic infused funk dance grooves and catchy hip hop rhymes. The highlight of the night was their standout track "Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll" off their new album Freedom Is.

Closing out the night was LA/NY female alt/hip hop dance duo, Nola Darling. This spit fire duo performed a smokin' set of high energy hip hop dance tracks , none of which hit harder than their standout jams "STFU (Start The Riot)" and "No Bra, No Panties".

Huge thanks to everyone that came out to support, perform, and both the The Mint and Hunnypot crews. We couldn’t make it all happen without each and every one of you! 01/13/2014


Alyson Vidol


In 2006, Gary Calamar founded GO Music with colleague Alyson Vidoli to manage various music supervision projects.  This led to their work on some of the most acclaimed shows on television: Wilfred, House, Dexter, Entourage, Weeds and True Blood.  GO Music also hosts a very popular concert series, The Mimosa Music Series which showcases great artists on Sunday mornings.  Alyson is working on several projects in the new year including Sex Ed, Coffee Town, Windwalkers and God, Guns & Automobiles. This is her 1st time curating an official Hunnypot listening session.



DJ Godfather is considered one of the founding fathers of the genre we now know as Ghetto Tech. He started DJing at the age of 15 with the help of, now business partner, DJ Dick. Within a few months of getting his turntables, Godfather was already playing in nightclubs and after hour parties all over Detroit. He started producing at the age of 17 for his first Miami Bass style group Bass Association. With the buzz of a few singles off the Bass Association album on 3 Detroit radio stations, Godfather made his first solo record at the age of 18 on Twilight 76 Records entitled ”Work Dat”. Taking his turntablism skills and mixing Detroit Techno music with Miami Bass music, a new sound was born, Ghetto Tech. You can hear DJ Godfather tracks on the 2 videos games, ‘NBA 2K6’ and ‘NBA 2K7’ on 2K Sports. He was the first DJ to be released on the Serato digital download series, using Scratch Live technology and tracks only available digitally for a mix CD entitled “For The Freaks”.

Her new single is “Hold Up Wait A Minute (Woo Woo)”, don’t miss this special live performance.



Fans across America are talking about SOPHISTAFUNK, the product of three multi-talented musicians [Adam Gold, Jack Brown, & Emanuel Washington] who combine spoken-word artistry, old-school hip hop, & funky rhythms to create a unique live band experience.The 4 elements of Sophistafunk: (1) a 1950s jazz club, (2) a 1960s poetry den, (3) a 1970s funk party, (4) a 1980s hip hop show.
The band are from NY and are touring in support of their just-released Freedom Is album. 



Hailing from New York and Los Angeles, by way of Haiti & St. Lucia, NOLA DARLING’s sound is new school fresh, yet old world cool. Tongue-in-cheek sensibility and spit-fire flows mashed-up with sweet and siren-like vocals make Alexandra and Jaquita the girls you want to get to know.

Citing The Fugees, Zap Mama, Tanya Stephens, Steel Pulse, Esthero and Salt ‘N Pepa, among many others as strong influences, Alex and Jaq continue to hone their crafts and unique sound. They have collaborated with an impressive and growing list of artist/producers including: Grammy winners Om’mas Keith (Frank Ocean, Erykah Badu) and Shafiq Hussein (Robert Glasper, Erykah Badu), Tim K (Esthero, Tiny Hearts, Dam Funk), and the legendary Kwame (Mary J Blige, Christina Aguilera, Will Smith).

Nola Darling also collaborated with chart topping Australian group, Yolanda Be Cool on the international smash “Change,” for YBC’s debut album, “Ladies and Mentalmen” (Steve Aoki’s DIM MAK Records). “Change” has been in heavy rotation on radio stations from Bali to London, to Australia and beyond. The tune hit #1 on the official Korean EDM chart in May 2013.

The ladies of Nola Darling are currently working on top line for an array of up and coming producers as well as writing for their upcoming releases. Stay tuned for much more to come from Alex and Jaq in 2014.
