Do you have a hat with your name on it? DJ Tim "Co-op" Hoover does! (Nico Wlock)
Strap on your skates and earmuffs everyone, Manitoba musicians and DJs will take over the warming huts on the River Trail at The Forks on Sunday, February 17.
Red Moon Road, fiddler Melissa St. Goddard, JD Edwards, Haley Carr, The Lucas Sader Project and DJs Hunnicutt and Co-op will each set up at huts along the trail, from The Forks to Osborne Village.
Since he'll be spending several hours out in the elements, we asked DJ Tim "Co-op" Hoover for his Top 5 picks to heat things up on the River Trail.
"Bounce Rock Skate Roll" by Vaughan Mason & Crew
When we started Soul on Ice, we wanted to take the classic roller-boogie scene and put a Manitoba twist on it. This is the ultimate roller boogie tune!
"A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays" by De La Soul
This was was one the first 12 inch vinyl singles I got as a DJ, I'll always love how they made a hip-hop tribute to the roller disco.
"The Groove Line" by Heatwave
An sweet disco jam written for this British funk band by the legendary Rod Temperton. "Heatwave" will keep you warm on the river!
"On Our Own" by Bobby Brown
I've got a lot of love for the late-80 New Jack/R&B of my youth, plus this joint was featured in Ghostbusters 2! Pretend Slimer is chasing you, you'll skate faster!
"Everybody Loves the Sunshine" by Roy Ayers
One of my favourite things about Winnipeg winters is even when it's cold out, it's still sunny! You gotta love it.
Manitoba musicians will be performing in various warming huts along the River Trail on Sunday, February 17.
