Born & bred in NYC, DJ Neil Armstrong turned his love of music and hip-hop culture into a career that has allowed him to play music for the masses all over the world – and gained notoriety for his mixtape projects, which showcased his DJ skills as well as his vast eclectic knowledge of music. These highly regarded mixtapes generated considerable press – most notably in Rolling Stone, Vibe,MTV.com, Theme, URB and Complex. Eventually Neil’s reputation as a turntable musician landed him a spot as Jay-Z’s tour DJ.
Through social media (twitter, instagram, facebook) Neil has found a new way to connect with his audience, sharing his travel experience through the cultural unifier of food. Neil has created an event series called
Dinner & A Mixtape
which provides the opportunity to enjoy music and food together in a very unique setting. These events have been going on for the last year and have been held in New York, Hong Kong, Manila, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las vegas to name a few. For the night the partner restaurant creates a special menu just for the event, and the soundtrack is provided by a new installment in DJ Neil Armstrong’s Mixtape Library.
Part eating experience, part listening session.
The food nourishes the body, and music feeds the soul.
