THERE ARE SOME BANDS THAT YOU WATCH AND FEEL LIKE YOU’RE TRULY WITNESSING SOMETHING SPECIAL. I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE TO SEE THE RAMONES FIRST SHOWS, OR MARS AND DNA, BUT I HAVE SEEN THE TELEPHONE CALLERS PLAY SOME OF THE MOST MIND MELTING SETS OUT OF ANY BAND IN MY LIFETIME. THESE GUYS RULE, AND THEY FINALLY HAVE A 7″, IT’S ABOUT FUCKING TIME. IF YOU’RE LUCKY YOU CAN FIND SOME OF THEIR TAPES LYING IN A DUMPSTER SOMEWHERE, BUT DON’T BE A JERK BRO, PICK THIS UP!

I HAD THE GREAT PLEASURE OF DJING SOME WERKIN’ HOUSE IN THA D LAST NIGHT. AS MOST LOFT PARTIES GO IT WASN’T REALLY POPPIN’ UNTIL ABOUT 1AM, WHEN THIS JIT CREW STORMED THROUGH AND TOOK THE DANCEFLOOR HOSTAGE! IT WAS A TRULY BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCE TO SEE AND BE A PART OF. THIS VIDEO IS A GOOD INTRODUCTION THE ART AND CULTURE OF DETROIT JIT, AS IT SHOWCASES SOME OF THE MORE POPULAR STEPS.¬† AS AMAZING AS THIS TAPED FOOTAGE IS NOTHING CAN COMPARE TO THE ENERGY AND POSITIVE VIBES OF WATCHING LIVE JIT CREW DOING THE DAMN THANG.

One of many reasons to be stoked for DEMF – 19 year old Kyle Hall. ¬†Active in Detroit’s music scene since the age of 11 he has releases forthcoming on Hyperdub and Warp.
