Thanks to the ever-present Aquabooty crew, Osunlade is a familiar face in these parts, traveling down from New York every so often to spin records. The man behind dance classics like Eric "Erro" Roberson's "Don't Change" and his own Paradigm album is a prime force in Afro-house, from his fierce look (a Yoruban priest, he often wears a bone in his nose) to the African-inspired artwork that adorns releases on his label, Yoruba Records. The popularity of soulful house music has now spread to spoken-word happenings and hip-hop clubs, but Osunlade's name and influences are still relatively unknown. This past July, Osunlade released a new album, Aquarian Moon. His upcoming Miami appearance won't be about self-promotion, though, just about having a good time. Bring your boogie shoes. Mosi Reeves
