MTG Festival of Friends 4 Kicks Off with a Boom!

If you are a Bass & Breaks head, don’t sleep on this.  Like I said in my past write up [Link]…I like to hit the club/festie as much as the next chap, but if you don’t have that in your hood this weekend, this is the spot to be.  I popped into MTG FOF4 for a few sets and some pretty off the cuff humor in the live chat last night.  All the music was pumping, jokes were slinging and I was stoked to see people from 4 or 5 time zones and twice as many countries across the planet.  Check the flyer, and more of my jabber below;)

And there are so many hot ones in here, just peep that schedule…but here’s a special shout to a couple that I’ve worked with recently and I’m off my nut to catch the likes of…Atomic Hooligan (UK), Blacklist,  Karl Sav, the Juicy Agent 137  and my SoCal homies Otter, and Genevieve…big ups for brining it proper, and again hats off to JB Thomas, Neil Thompson and the MTG crew for making it happen.

 

 

MTG’s Festival of Friends 4 Announced | Get Your Virtual Party On!

Can’t make it to the club?  Court date with Judge Judy?  Don’t sweat it…Here’s your chance to get as close as possible without pulling a leg out of your pajamas…We can’t help you with the court date part but they usually have WIFI so your probably still good.

Now what is this thing?  Well it’s a virtual party.  I hung out at the Festival of Friends Ladies Edition in 2014 and while I’m one for the live in the flesh show, I gotta say it was kind of fun to listen to great jams and chat it up with a gaggle of energetic, like minded souls from around the world.

The Juice camp has a couple crews in the mix and a bunch of friends too…but no one says it better than the Monkey Tennis Group themselves, so head on over and check out their official site which went up today. [Go Here]

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.
