Events: Friends

Since buhbOmp, for reasons that should be obvious by now, supports all things Sound Liberation Front, I wanted to pass on to you a plug for the latest event we’ve gotten behind:

In collaboration with our friends Planet Rump and AfroMarc Productions, Sound Liberation Front is proud to bring you … Booty Crisis on November 14th at Public Assembly. This is a monthly dance party thrown by Planet Rump, and it showcases some of the hottest and freshest electro-funk acts around — guaranteed to move your body into a pleasure-inducing dance seizure that may take days to recover from.

For those who missed them back in August at the inaugural Sound Liberation Festival at Littlefield, Chico Mann is absolutely fucking great live, and this Booty Crisis party promises to rock pretty gotdamn hard.

Peep the facebook event invite for all the specifics.

Looking forward to this.

I went see one of my favorite producers, Domu, at the Raw Fusion Loft Party this past weekend, and had the good fortune of running into Ernesto Vigo and Probe dms, the Harlemite bruk gurus who hosted the brilliant Elevations Harlem broken beat radio show on WHCR in Harlem when I first got to New York.

That show went off the air a while back, and it has been sorely missed. The last time I saw Ernesto, he assured me that they had something special and new in the works, and that, despite taking a hiatus to attend to life, love and happiness, he and Probe were definitely still putting in work for New York’s broken beat scene.

So, when I saw them at the Domu party, I was ecstatic to get my paws on handbills promoting a party to celebrate the rebirth of Elevations.

If you didn’t get the chance to check out the original Elevations when it was on FM radio, you missed out on some serious heat. Ernesto and Probe, both deep and focused with their music knowledge, always had the latest and greatest bruk tunes on rotation. With their deep connections to artists across the pond and in the boroughs, they carried the torch in New York for the forward-focused, progressive, and soulful sounds of the broken beat scene.

And now, they’re back. I’m geeked. They’ve teamed up with Brett from Boundless to raise Elevations from the dead, launching a new website,, and a weekly podcast. They unleashed the first episode last week. You can check it here:

As usual, it’s a mix of classic and new bruk tunes with a bunch of exclusive and unreleased gems, including a dope new cut called “Ghost” from Probe’s upcoming album Life is a Movie.

Here’s the playlist:

1. These Things Will Pass – Kaidi Tatham (Freedom School)
2. Believe In Something feat. Heidi Vogel – Grey Matter (Unique Uncut)
3. **M.J. Tribute: Do You Remember The Time (Aroop Roy’s Brukup) – Harry Coade vs. Michael Jackson (CDR)
4. Jump Up feat. Lindah E and Koder- Jason Eli (Groovadelica)
5. More Ways Than One – Altered Natives (Eye 4 Eye)
6. Lose It – 2000Black (Third Ear)
7. Calling Out (Maddslinky Remix) – Mr. J (Askew Recordings)
8. Ghost – Probe dms (DMS CDR)
9. Untitled – Arch Typ (CDR)
10. Hope – Fujimoto Tetsuro (Unique Uncut)
11. Spoiled Edit- Daz-I-Kue feat. Bembe Segue and Colonel Red (Ben E. King) – Ubiquity
12. Fire – Jonny Miller (Jus Listen)
13. The Galactica Suite (Domu Remix) – Simon Grey/Domu vs Papa (Papa)
14. Bamboo – Yellowtail (CDR)

If you’re in the New York area, you should stop by and support their pre-launch party in Brooklyn tomorrow. Ernesto and Probe will be on the decks alongside Yellowtail and DJ Zhill of Bagpak, one of my favorite online music stores. Here’s the info:

Note: the pic above is not from his SS’10 collection, but rather from a collection showcased in 2008.

The Buhbomp crew are a motley (no Crüe) looking bunch, we wear mostly XXXXL free Bush Babees promo tees from the mid-nineties to compliment our hand-me-down khakis and Nike Cortez. Basically, we’re raggedy. Luckily, Buhbomp Amsterdam office president, Daryl Van Wouw is about to launch his SS’10 collection on our tasteless asses.

So peep serious style game over at the SS’10 Hypercube for what you’ll be rocking in the year 2012.

The Almighty Kracker Nuttz | A Decade Strong Anniversary
Wednesday, November 26, 2008
Club Next (2020 McKinney, Houston, TX)
Admission: $10/$7 with a canned good
Doors: 10 p.m. – 2 a.m.; 18+ ladies, 21+ fellas

When the city’s most recognized on-air DJs get together to celebrate, it’s always a party. But give them a special reason to reunite and reflect on a 10 years of solidarity, then it’s really goin’ down! KBXX The Boxx’s Almighty Kracker Nuttz are going “A Decade Strong” and gathering folks up the night before Thanksgiving, Wednesday, November 26, at Club Next (2020 McKinney) for what should be absolutely memorable.

Founded by in 1998 by brothers who shared a vision of integrating culture into their music and entertainment, DJ KleanCutt and Baby Jae established the Kracker Nuttz in the city of Houston. Their passion for turntables and good music soon became a strong bond that resonated with friends, family, and the community.

 In no time the KNuttz organization grew with the addition of long-time friend and radio veteran DJ Ron EG. Also added to the group were DJs Akshun Kid, Kosuri, Cipher, Eddie, Milo, Rodney, Nino, Debbie, and finally Roy. Soon after the KNuttz became a staple in Houston’s nightlife and on the airwaves. They landed a coveted spot on Houston’s widely acclaimed hip hop and R&B station, “97.9 the BOX.” The KNuttz had hit the Houston scene in full force, incorporating their turntables, tricks, and scratches into all of their live radio mixes.

 The KNuttz make regular guest appearances at shows, special events and some of the South’s top music venues–proof that the music industry has taken a notice of their crazy antics. Most notably, the KNuttz entertained events such as the premiere party for film X-Men (2000) in New York City, the Import Expo Show (2000, 2001) hosted by M&N Entertainment, R Kelly’s “Best Of Both Worlds” after party, and opened for legendary rap groups De La Soul, Common, and the Pharcyde, just to name a few.

Entertainment is covered when you call on The Kracker Nuttz: everything from radio to the club, competing in DJ Battles, hosting parties, producing and remixing, and to hands-on, face-to-face street promotions. They continue to leave a lasting impression, because the Kracker Nuttz stay “ALL UP IN YOUR MOUTH!”

 A Decade Strong features a solid lineup of local cats alongside the KNuttz DJ roster. The Main Room offers up Dayta, Squincy Jones, Klean Cutt, Kosuri, Akshun Kid, Baby Jae and Cipher; in the Smoking Section is Ace Booncoon, Gonz, Klinch, El Roy Boogie and Brotha Jibril. Early arrival is strongly suggested.

 Please contact Fahrenheit Media to set up interviews with those involved with the Kracker Nuttz event or to arrange for press/photo passes for the night. For more info, visit or
