Apt One and Skinny are the latest to be featured in Dirty South Joe's weekly column for the Weekly.
Michael “Apt One” Fichman (right) and Andrew “Skinny” Friedman make up the dynamic DJ and production duo the Philadelphyinz.
The two started collaborating on music in Pittsburgh, where they both grew up. Their moniker is a nod to Pennsylvania’s two biggest cities. “Pittsburgh people are really serious about their Pittsburgh,” says Fichman. “You can take the yinzer out of Pittsburgh, but you can’t take Pittsburgh out of the yinzer."
Catch Apt One's opening set at the Tech Support 2-year anniversary at the Bubble House, 34th and Sansom. Kenny Raw and Properganda hold it down afterwards and a closing set at Hurrah! at Sal's, 12th and Chestnut. Residents Shawn Ryan and Chris Rogy rock on the early tip. No cover.
