Where drum & bass, trap & hip-hop collide

By WMC 2001 (or was it ’02?) I was already growing tired of the endless “look at me” DJs playing the usual schlock of dribble while endlessly waving their hands in the air. I suddenly began to realize that I did not give a shit. Then I caught Ming & FS performing live at OM […]

We had fun gathering up some of our favorite tracks from this year […]


Remember when central Florida ruled the dance scene with an ecstasy-laced Mickey Mouse glove? Don’t lie, most people don’t either. But it happened. Orlando and Tampa for a brief, delicious, 8-up moment ruled the underground dancefloor with a distinct sound that could only be identified as “Funky Breaks”, aka Florida Breaks. Hard to believe that […]
