Agent 137 keeps steady on her mission to follow the magic fugu aka the It’s Wes Smith Yo! tour. This time she catches up with Brandon DeRosa part of the “Bee Humble Collective” to see what all the buzz is about in Boulder.
How did you start out in the scene?
I got into the scene at 16 when I bought first tables. My intent was to start scratching in a band (like Limp Biscuit did then), however, bands fell apart when you are a kid. Instead I started doing my own parties at 18 starting with a warehouse party. Eventually I got out of the scene when it started to decline but then got back into it eventually. I starting meeting people and crews in Denver – Denver is a really small scene with a REALLY big heart. It’s been an uphill struggle but our scene has been coming back strong and all the crews have come together and really supported one another.
How did “Why We Groove” start?
Around 4 years ago we used my uncle’s property and threw a small BBQ. The next year Karl Sav lived in Colorado so we booked him and really started thinking about expanding the show. In our third year we brought in Bella and Omar Santana because we grew up on this type of breaks and really wanted to portray both older and new styles. This year we are bringing in Wes and have a huge lineup of Colorado talent from all over the state and beyond as well. It is a bunch of different styles and djs from different crews including some other types of broken beat, including drum & bass.
