Stanton Warriors: Bring the Beat Back!
Check out this freaking amazing lineup (seriously, Portland is spoiled): Stanton Warriors (headliners), Jaden, DJ Three, Zita, Nicky Mason & Chase Manhattan, J Renegade, Lets Go Outside, George Holland, DJ Wiggles, and Blue Submarine.
Stanton Warriors, a delicious duo that hails from Britain, and a force seriously into mixing and producing breaks that make you want to dance your pants off. At the last Breakspoll awards, Stanton Warriors were recently voted the #1 breaks DJs in the world and their latest album, Stanton Sessions 3 was voted best Compilation CD of the year.
With their signature sound and the confidence borne from playing for crowds in the thousands, these guys are definitely not new to the game, and …well they're kind of a big deal.Ãƒâ€š I talked to Jaden, one of the headlining breaks DJ's for Thursday. He's a pretty seasoned DJ, plenty of national gigs and a few international radio spots under his belt; yet being approached to be billed with Stanton Warriors, he said was both "humbling and very exciting".
Portland's DJ scene is pretty quiet compared to Seattle and LA, but our growing underground movement is slowly pushing us to the front. Last month was Mark Farina, now it's Stanton Warriors. Seattle, I can hear you burning with jealousy, but you're more than welcome to make the trip (I know many a carpool is being planned as I type).
For those of you who are just looking for a good time (and who isn't?) — this is that good time. It's not your typical Tube or Holocene dance party, and it certainly won't soon be duplicated. Days have gone into setup alone. Expect walls of speakers, superior lighting and sound, and one sweaty, dancing, mass of happy bodies.Ãƒâ€š It's going to be amazing. Join us.
