Detroit Hip-Hop's Ambassador to the World. Michael "HouseShoes" Buchanan has been an integral part of the long burgeoning Motown resurgence. Ask the people coming out of Detroit and they will confirm all of this. Houseshoes, a resident DJ at the Hip-Hop staple St. Andrews Hall from 1994-2004, has had personal influence over (at least) a full generation of emcees, producers, and then-future-DJs. Through House Shoes Recordings he pressed the now classic Jay Dee - Unreleased EP" (1996), Phat Kat – Dedication To The Suckers 12” (1999), and Houseshoes – Loungin’ (2004).
