House Shoes: The Purest Purist

February 6th, 2014

LA Weekly recently Highlighted Detroit’s own, DJ House Shoes. See excerpts from the article below.

Since relocating to Los Angeles five years ago, the man born Michael Buchanan has become one of the city’s best free-agent acquisitions, regularly spinning at low-key soul wax nights and feverishly crowded beat functions like Low End Theory and the Do-Over. His Twitter bio is mostly accurate: DJ, producer, curator, mentor, assassin. He’s the DJ as bruising power forward, adding necessary grit and rarely falling for pump fakes.

“If you’re a DJ and you only play hits, you have nothing to offer. Fuck all the robots. If I go to the club and it’s the same as listening to the radio, who fucking cares,” Shoes says, sipping a Tsingtao beer at a café a few blocks from his Koreatown home. “I don’t give a fuck about turning up. I’ll turn your shit off.”

This mentality was finely tuned during the latter half of the ’90s and early ’00s at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit, the legendary hip-hop mecca graced by every great Motown rapper of the era: J Dilla, Slum Village, Eminem. We briefly talk about the time that he played Tupac’s “Hit ‘Em Up,” stopped the needle, broke the record and put on Notorious B.I.G.’s “Unbelievable.” The next week, the club got shot up in retaliation.

“Love me or hate me, you have to respect me,” Shoes, 38, says with a laugh. His head is shaved and his beard is grown out to match his “don’t give a fuck” temperament. When he gear shifts between “fuckboy genocide” to talking about his devotion to his two young children, it almost reminds you of Mike Ehrmantraut from Breaking Bad. “All I have is my family and this rap shit,” Shoes says.
