It’s time for a beach adventure with some of the best bass music djs around. I, Dj Ripley, fresh off my nine-city European tour, am pulling together this party on the Rockaway Boardwalk, hosted by Caracas Arepa Bar and showcasing global bass music talents from Dutty Artz and beloved by Dutty Artz. The excuse? The existence of such mighty talents that need celebrating, the impending end of the summer, and my birthday!
That means: beach, boardwalk, beer, arepas, ice cream, a dancefloor and plenty of big bass sounds including kuduru, cumbia, soca, uk funky, vogue beats, dancehall, dembow, carioca bass, Baltimore club, crunk, 3bal, azonto, reggae en español, bhangra, juke, and more..
DJ D'hana - recently arrived from Boston, D'hana bring a slamming style sometimes called #KUNQ including hard house, caribbean sounds and vogue beats, among other strains. Check the mixes here:http://soundcloud.com/
DJ Precolumbian - based in Philly, Precolumbian rocks a unique blend of tropical rhythms, indie anthems, dark crystals, and booty jams from all over the globe. If we’re lucky we’ll get some selections from her baltimore/philly club collection as well: she has deep crates and sick dance moves. Precolumbian also has a great radio show (http://
DJ Ushka - another multifaceted talent, Ushka throws (alongside Dj Beto) the amazing iBomba parties in Brooklyn, is an immigrant rights activist, organizer and fierce dancer. Her music weaves together immigrant/diasporic sounds with lively inventiveness and a sharp eye on creating a positive dancefloor experience. Check her first mixtape (at 6000 plays, damn!) here: http://soundcloud.com/
M-Peach - A live performance from this Venezuelan vocalist, beatmaker and video artist always blows the roof off. Luckily here we will be outside so everyone will just hit the water! Here's a link to a cool-ass video, shot in Caracas: http://mpeachhh.com/ MPeach's blend of tropical big bass sounds and fierce vocals are going to take the party somewhere really special.
Dj Ripley will herself throw down a unique mix of global street bass, focusing on kuduro, dembow, soca, with US & UK bass music and a heavy selection of vocals from Eve, Missy, Trina, Lady, Natalie Storm, Tifa, Lady Chann, Macka Diamond, Lady Saw, Warrior Queen and more….knowing her tastes we will get to Jungle at some point in the night!
