Holy Monday you guise!! Do I have the Tarzan and Jane of the Jungle in store for you today! Ohio brethren stepping through, the one like Die~Verse dropped some seriously tremendous, break-ya neck half time jammies for this week’s NAPCast! Good googlie mooglie can this guy murder a mix. I’ve spent my weekend deep inside the likes of Ivy Lab, Om Unit and Sam Binga. Half time vibes are my jam, like seriously the biggest dad boner for these dudes right now. In 5 days I’m going to be losing my shit on the dance floor of Ruby Tuesday Live in Columbus, OHs for the one and only Mr. Binga himself, so Die-Verse is hitting all the spots with this grimey, footworky, hip hop manifested gem. Oh, and he JUUUST so happens to be gracing the bill Friday night as well?? How.bow.dah?
I don’t know what else you can really say about the master of beats that is Die~Verse. I love his his hop sensibilities behind the decks when applied to dnb. If I had to write them down in a list, I’d probably find that the majority of DJs who catch and keep my attention are those who are also heavily influenced by hip hop equally as much as dance music in general. A lot of the characteristics of both genres shine through here and has set my mind perrrrrectly for the week to come. If you’re within hitch hiking distance of Columbus, OH on the 31st, you seriously need to find yourself at Ruby Tuesday Live’s. You already know you’re getting another taste of this badass you’re listening to right now. and NOT ONLY THAT but there is ALSO going to be a sick set from SAM BINGA (!!!! UMMM HELLLOOOO??!! YES.) Torrential T is dropping a Dance Hall set and just for the cherry on top, you get What the Bleep and Foi Oi Oi!! Just the most wicked, wicked, wiiiicked night I can even THINK of putting together. Just another blessing from the In:Direct Audio crew who I am thankful for on the regular basis. Keeping the vibes, good times and DRUM AND BASS ALIVE, one bomb show at a time. I hope I see a LOT of your faces there!!! It’s a Friday, you ain’t got shit to do…..BE THERE <3
