Juice Drops | The Armory Podcast – 079 – Omega Squad

Extremely happy for Omega Squad, the most recent addition to the Juice Camp.  They have a fresh new mix on The Armory Podcast produced by DJ Zach Moore [Facebook] out of San Francisco.  It’s really awesome to see our San Diego based breaks crews bringing their A-Game.   The Juice Drop is their own “Shake” which was released in January and bumped it’s way into the Beatport Breaks Top 20.  BLAM!

Juice Drops | The Legendary Breakers of Boom Presents: Breaker Series Vol. 004 – Fonik

Review
Hot mix here.  One look at the track list and you know the funked out vocal crew is in for a must hear session.  From the start, there’s no delay with the energy, rolling out some current bangers and and armory of deliberate classic nods.

With absolutely no stress on the promo situation, DJ Fonik delivers a really fun mix, with great flow that reminds me of what DJ’s do when they aren’t freaking out about their Stock Price or branding a new genre.

If you dance, to breaks anyway…which I imagine most anyone reading this at least gives it a go… or you just like that hands in the air business…this mix is on that vibe from start to finish and alas for you.

The second half gets a bit darker, but only in an electro way, and even here there’s plenty of hype and old school feel to it all with no shortage of Quad.  Turn up the center knob in that low rider and roll out to a classic Rob Bass edit courtesy of The Juice Squad and yours truly!

All in all, this is the kind of set you’d really love to hear follow up a headliner, or for that matter from a headliner, perhaps an old school night, at a club where chin stroking is not your main interest.  For all these wonderful reasons, Juice Drop Meter = 9/10.

Juice Drops | Coast To Coast by DJ Rockit & Orkid

Big ups to Rockit and Orkid for a couple Juice Drops on this bass heavy Monkey Tennis Group breaks mix.  Kicking off with a few massive bassline heavies…make sure you have some 18’s for this sesh.  This thing rolls out a flurry of massive bass, breaks and electro rhythms like you’d expect to hear as the background tracks for a hamster driving a Kia.

Around 10, there’s some solid turntablist flava going down…then get ready for an electro bass assortment like that 50 flavor jelly belly mix.  Roll with that for 30 minutes into a darker space and if your head isn’t nodding check yo pulse.  I’m not going to lie, this one gets heavy in a good electro sort of way…if that’s your vibe stay tight, otherwise roll to about the 40:00 mark for some more DMC level wiki wiki and get ready for a breakbeat funk fest.

Orkid comes in around the 1:00 mark and kicks into some hands in the air business with trance undertones.  Around 1:12:00 comes the Juice Drop b/w of Feel The Break (Wes Smith’s Dirty Juice Remix) a jam I did for my pals MutantBreakz on Lady Waks InBeatWeTrust (IBWT) imprint out of Russia.  Funny how things sound so much different when you haven’t been listening to it 465 times.  Love this one.

After this Orkid takes the mix back in that 808 direction.  Lots of vocals on a several mix segue way get us into some Dirty Birds/Punks feeling rhythms.  Don’t get to comfy, in short order she’s back on that bass line grind with some half tempo sections and big EDM/Trap/Twerk level shit that will flex your Cerwin Vegas straight through the car wash.  BrokeAsFCK meter = 8/10.
