Lil’ Ricky’s Rib Shack

Media Title

Ah, yeah: a monthly DJ Rich Medina residency where you can get down without claustrophobia, a grown-folks fest not at some totally wack, overlit nightclub. Man, the potential here! First launched in NYC, Lil Ricky’s Rib Shack is Medina’s homemade HQ in which to turn you out with vinyl selections in the realms of funk, hip-hop, Afrobeat, soul, R&B and house. He’s got the goods to run some heady spoken-word sample over a disco beat and catch you all, like “This man is deep.” He’s just in time, too. February is getting so tiresome. And heaven knows we need a real release.

What probably makes Medina such a huge success, in addition to 20-plus years of practice, is the way that he doesn’t play a single dud. He’ll never put down a track that sends people to the bar for a break—even a choice that sounds like a turndown, give it a minute. Some chopped and screwed clarinet or fucked-with old-school-diva soundbyte will keep you intrigued—and, most of all, moving. Even if you’re just bobbing your head or bending your knees, Medina will get you in his grips. It’s his specialty, after all. Those who claim they “don’t dance”—ugh!—will be shoving their way onto the Necktie floor.  // BILL CHENEVERT
