Unfortunately, I will be at a wedding this weekend, so I won't make what is likely to be one of my favorite shows this year.
DJ /rupture is not only one of the smartest and most provocative bloggers around, but also one of the smartest and most provocative DJs around. Neither of those things preclude the dancfloors under his influence from being absolutely slammin with block-rocking beats.
This cat has put immense energy, intensity and focus into bringing together musics from all over the world and cutting them together on the dancefloor in a way that truly ruptures mental (and political) maps, bleeding borders and languages together and underlining it all with earth-fed bass force.
Add to that dubstep juggernaut Dave Q of NY's mighty Dub War, plus local drumnbass/dubstep fave Miss Haze, and the reggae and hip-hop-soul-funk forces of Dj I-Vier and Coop'D'Ville.. well.. it's beyond masalacized this time. Whatever your favorite dish of a million spices is, this is it in musical form. I'm thinking the Vegetarian combo platter plus tuna special at Finfine ethiopian restaurant, but that's just me...
