A fellow countryman, a brother from another Greek Mother, Cocoe Tsimahidis is proudly putting on the 14th year anniversary of Abstract Workshop! Cocoe is bringing in the man who he considers his biggest influence, J-Rocc, and also Stones Throw label head Peanut Butter Wolf. Spinning alongside them will be Cocoe, Scotty Coats, Josh One & Mr. Hyder.

This is the first event I have featured where the music is steeped in hip-hop influences, I personally never sought out hip-hop records or did much solo listening of my own, but I always appreciated coming across a talented turntabilist. Listening to a well versed DJ put down an instrumentalist hip-hop set, I get the chance to hear funk, disco, and boogie cut up and rearranged like I’ve never heard before. J-Rocc is a perfect example of how a well versed DJ cuts across all boundaries, he may be considered a hip-hop DJ but he knows more about disco & soul than I do for sure. He puts down edits that stand up to any of the disco-edit big guns out there. Have a listen for yourself.

Seems like there might be a new person booking over at Detroit Bar, with Cosmic Kids for New Years and now The Juan Maclean only a week later there is definitely someone who has an ear for good dance music. Props to the Detroit Bar crew for bringing OC some good nights!

I care for John Maclean (one half of The Juan Maclean Duo) as a DJ over producer by far. Simply because the energy in his sets is great. Check this dope video of him playing at A Club Called Rhonda.

Tonight Orange County is re-visited by the crew that kicked its ass every Saturday night from ’04 to ’08 at Avalon Bar. They bring with them a heaping helping of debaucherous disco & dance rock.

The original crew Scotty Coats, 2000 MAN (dirtylo), & DJ Poppa are teaming up with GARTH, DJ SPUN & Buck and delivering you two rooms of music, 6 DJ’s, an extensive record collection of classics and oddities, and an assortment of Orange County residents who haven’t had much of an alternative since the crew moved on. People are going to be antsy to get the party moving to say the least.

Located at Detroit Bar. Saturday March19th 9-2am

About the DF Crew, DJ Spun, Buck and Garth

“NEWS? THE WORLD IS ROUND. ONCE UPON A TIME THEY TRIED TO KILL DISCO BY BURNING RECORDS IN A GIANT PILE IN SOME STRANGE MID EVIL FASHION. IT DIDN’T WORK. IT ONLY BLEW MAD NASTY BLACK SMOKE INTO THE AIR AND POLLUTED THE EARTHS ATMOSPHERE EVEN MORE THAN IT ALREADY WAS. UMMMMMMM? DOI!”
