It's hot out there!

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.

Just finished reading Kenneth Anger’s HOLLYWOOD BABYLON, a collection of salacious gossip tales from the golden days of Hollywood.  A bit of contrast between that campy moment and this, though the book still managed to keep a meditative pace.

Nothing quite like a castrato to jumpstart your weekend!

HI, MY NAME IS DJ BLK_OUT. I’LL BE POSTING HERE FROM TIME TO TIME. MY POSTS WILL HAVE SIGNIFICANT AND AUTHENTIC CULTURAL VALUES, ALL THE WHILE BEING ENTIRELY GHETTO FABULOUS. THIS GEM “GIT TY UP” BY NEW ORLEANS BOUNCE ARTISTS SISSY NOBBY IS A STELLAR EXAMPLE OF MY POSTING PHILOSOPHY. SISSY NOBBY, ALONG WITH SUCH ARTISTS AS KATEY RED AND BIG FREEDIA ARE THE FORERUNNERS OF “SISSY BOUNCE”, WHICH IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SUBCULTURES HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. IMAGINE TRANSVESTITE MC’S SPITTING HOT FIRE IN A SWEATBOX CLUB IN NAWLIN’S, WITH REAL THUGS TRYING TO MACK ON THESE BIG BOOTY HOES FREAKIN’ ON THE FLOOR. YEAH, THAT’S THE SPOT I WANNA BE AT.
