True Skool presents an Exclusive 3-hour Set by:
Afrika Bambaataa (Godfather of Universal Hip Hop Culture / Father of Electro-Funk Sounds)

Afrika Bambaataa is one of the three main originators of break-beat deejaying, and is respectfully known as the "Grandfather" and "Godfather" of Hip Hop Culture as well as The Father of The Electro Funk Sound. Through his co-opting of the street gang the Black Spades into the music and culture-oriented Zulu Nation, he is responsible for spreading rap and hip-hop culture throughout the world.

Due to his early use of drum machines and computer sounds, Bam (as he is affectionately known) was
instrumental in changing the way R&B and other forms of Black music were recorded. His creation of Electro Funk, beginning with his piece "Planet Rock," helped fuel the development of other musical genres such as Freestyle or Latin Freestyle, Miami Bass,Electronica, House, Hip House, and early Techno.

Special guests:
Apollo (Triple Threat)
J-Boogie (Om Records / Beatsauce)
M3 (Green Gorilla Lounge)
Teeko (4onefunk)
