DETAILS: Sunset Promotions and the Fringe, the team that has brought you such epic parties as “Freaksgiving” and the “Icebreakers Ball” team up again for their second annual twisted take on the annual Mexican holiday – it’s “FREQO DE MAYO”. Featuring 3 soundsystems and an all-star cast of future world breaks, latin, house and hip hop including Bassnectar (DJ Lorin), and some of the local future-world music crop including Soulsalaam (Future Juju), Vanka (Misturada), El Papa Chango (El Circo), and Jayo & Kevin Wardell (Seismic). The more modern funky breakbeats will be provided by underground beatslingers, Motion Potion (the Fringe), Evinrude (Space Cowboys) and residents Mycho, Cocoa, Victor Vega and Tim Dietz. Plus visual vibes will be provided by Kaia Jacobi and the Fringe Collective painters, Nicole Andris, Trav Kohler and Micah Circe .
For the last decade, Lorin Ashton has helped develop the North American underground dance music scene. From touring full time as a DJ (an average of 125 shows per year), to his production & remixing under the alias Bassnectar, he has ammassed a dedicated fan base, crossing over from hip hop to electronica to breakbeat to ragga/dub to the jam band scene and the greater Burningman Scene. In January, Bassnectar was voted the #1 DJ in the Bay Area in the prestigious “Nitevibe Dreamteam” poll (www.nitevibe.com).
DJ, producer and percussionist, Soulsalaam (soulsalaam.com) has thrilled audiences from the Bay to Brazil with his future-world breaks, and live conga beats. Able to create, play the freshest African, Brazillian and Latin styles, then augment them with live percussion, Soulsalaam always pushes a dancelub over the edge. The same dynamic is brought by Seismic duo Jaio & Kevin Wardell, who rock Latin beats with live percussion. For that matter, no one has explored the future of latin music in the Bay Area more than DJ Vanka whose long-running Thursday night Misturada party is a fixture in the local world music scene. Ditto El Papachango, the El Circo regular known for merging Latin beats with modern breaks.
Adding to the world music mix will be some of the underground’s future-music talent. Motion Potion, “the Swiss army DJ” is best known for his embrace of the local funk scene, but recently has been seen performing live with Parliament-Funkadelic and the Mutaytor. Evinrude is a regular with the breakbeat driven Space Cowboys crew. Mycho Cocoa has garnered a superb reputation as a top beatslinger in styles as diverse as Arabic breaks, and soulful house. Like the rest of the Fringe DJ’s Victor Vega’s tastes run the gamut, but the NYC native is best known for his superior skills with Latin house and breakbeats. A crusader trying to bring underground hip hop back to underground parties, Billete is a member of the Fringe collective. Kaya (the Fringe): Beginning with homegrown imagery, Kaia has evolved her visual palette with STS9, Anon Salon, Moontribe, Traveling Corn, and other independent productions to bring an E-motion-al graphic eXplosion to an Intelligent Dance party near you.
