DJ Sureshot (AKA Shane Hunt) and Mr. Supreme (AKA Danny Clavesilla) met back in 1993 due to a shared love of beats and their massive record collections (Mr. Supreme apparently owns over 10,000 pieces of vinyl). They have since been featured on over 30 releases, on labels such as Om and Ubiquity, and have shared the stage with Maceo Parker, Kool Keith, Peanut Butter Wolf, and Ben Harper.
To help celebrate Light in the Attic's reissue of the soundtrack (composed by session drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, known for his work with James Brown, King Curtis, and George Benson) to the blaxploitation film Lialeh--AKA "the black Deep Throat"--the Sharpshooters are playing host to a party that should keep the beats tight all night long with sweaty funk and soul. They'll have the assistance of visuals from the film, and bikini-clad porn wannabes passing out popcorn (extra butter, please). Sounds like this should be an evening of extra-sexy grooves, so I'll be sure to dust off my pimp cane and get my powder-blue leisure suit dry-cleaned for the occasion. NICOLAE WHITE
