Sure, themed dance parties at the Majestic are a dime a dozen, but if you're going to have a funk-and-R&B dance night in Madison you'd be hard-pressed to find a better DJ than Philip Murray, aka DJ Phil Money. Murray has been DJing since the late 1980s, developing a broad ear and a gift for reading a room through his years spinning at parties and clubs in Long Island, New York City, and Atlanta. Left to his own devices, he can deftly skip across hip-hop, Afrobeat, dub, and anything else with a groove (as he did in a 2016 guest mix here on Tone Madison), but he's also more than capable of working within narrower guidelines and adapting in the moment. He does so at regular gigs around town, so think of his set at the new Mad City Soul Club night as a way to experience another facet of one of Madison's finest DJs. —Scott Gordon
