Philadelphia has always been a hotbed of soul, funk and disco artists. Some of the most notables being The Trammps, Gamble & Huff and McFadden & Whitehead. DJ Apt One is yet another artist from Philly who will soon be ranked up there with the more recognizable names.

DJ Apt One first came to our attention as a contributor to one of the more popular music blogs Dollar Bin Jams. We had the luxury of hosting him in Seattle at JACK at Seattle Eagle this past summer. We then coaxed him into making an exclusive mix for Bottom Forty which you can check out right here!

DJ Apt One plays JACK at Seattle Eagle Friday, April 4 and then Go BANG! at Stud in San Francisco Saturday, April 5 2014

I first heard of DJ Apt One from the amazing and ever replete music blog Dollar Bin Jams. As it’s name suggests, you can find rips of all kinds of obscure vinyl here, plus a deluge of funk and soul edits from DJ Apt One, Shawn Ryan and the other DBJ contributors.

Mr. One likes to keep many irons in the fire; touring, making edits, contributing guest articles and now authoring a foodie blog for Vice Magazine keeps his hands from being too idle. He was kind enough to take some time out of his very busy scheduled to answer a few questions for Bottom Forty.
