This is it! The time has come. While we have been having fun throwing these wacky pairings together for you for over a year now, it’s time to say goodbye. This is the last VS party and we are closing it out with a banger. I have been trying to throw Depeche Mode in there for so long and now we got fast fashion versus southern hospitality.
As usual yours truly and DJ Orion will be playing all your favorite songs mixed, mashed, and everything in between. Of course it won’t be all DM and Luda all night, we will be throwing in their peers and influences to cover all the bases.
Expect to hear 80’s classics and southern rap anthems.
RSVP + More information, you must learn.

The homie DJ Orion (@Dj_orion) has yet to drop this officially, so this is kind of a sneak peak for those that don’t follow the circular DJ blog world.
Speaking of blog worlds, this newest EP sees that of two musical worlds colliding for an interesting take on what Ableton is helping the ADD generation create.
New Orleans Bounce proper has been around since the early 90s that has seen it’s peaks and valleys of mainstream success, but has mostly stayed regional for the better part of it’s life.
Moombahton, on the other hand, is pretty fresh in the musical world and is still finding it’s voice amongst the many sub genres that have already spawned from it. Dave Nada is credited for creating the Dutch House hybrid and has seen support worldwide from it. Moombahton grew exponentially via viral sources through out the internet and I am curious to see where it goes.
Surprisingly THIS WORKS! Orion has been my main man for some time and I am always surprised at what he has in the works, and this is another notch he can add to the belt. I don’t think this will create another unwanted sub genre, but I do think it will create a frenzy on the dance floor.

Austin Night Life / Upcoming Shows
Keeping up with my weekend in Austin, this is happening on Saturday night at The Infamous Scoot Inn and it’s should be out of cot damn control!
Dj Orion & yours truly keep pushing the limits of “themed” parties and this one really takes the cake… if only for the flier alone.
So if you haven’t guessed it by now, we got 2pac VS (everything) George Clinton. How funky is this gonna be?!?!?!?
Be sure to RSVP for cheap entry and bring the rainbow wig for extra lil something something.

I think it is safe to say this is pretty out there, but since when have we gave a f*ck?
Knuckle Rumbler, Dj Orion, and yours truly are at it again at the end of the month bringing our VERSUS party to another level by putting P-Funkster George Clinton up against still living, California lover 2pac.
As usual, we are at our residency of The Scoot Inn on the east side of Austin at corner of 4th and Navasota.

Recommended Listening / Moombahton EP
Orion (@dj_orion) and Guapo Feo teamed up for a new collaborative series not unlike Heartbreak & Munchi’s H&M series. The difference with this first release is Orion’s take on 3ball style giving us his Boombahchero edits and Guapo Feo being aggro with some heavy Moombahcore tracks.
More calavera art for the cover, but not gonna focus on that much. The music is what we should be paying attention. Kids like heavy music these days, we all know this. If you can’t fist pump, then it’s not good seems to be a global mentality these days. Good thing for these guys, not only can you fist pump, but you can two step with it.
The heaviness of the EP does take it to dude territory (see Dubstep), but the Latin base gives it just enough swing that it won’t scare the girls away… well maybe from the soon to be shirtless dudes on the dancefloor.

Recommended Listening / DJ Mix
My really good friend and Dj partner, Dj Orion, has set out to change things with his new mix and edits. Dave Nada’s Moombahton has slowly been rolling down the hill, snowballing into an unstoppable Latin force. Munchi being the highlight of the scene in my opinion, dude is just ill.
Orion has gone and flipped what they are doing and just took it to a whole other level of craziness. This is Boombahton or Boombachero.
You can read more about how it came to be on the homie blog, Beats, Beers, Tacos, and Bikes.
