I went to see my friend, Mike Soops DJing at Grand Star Jazz Club in China Town last night. The event he span was called "Breaking Atoms". They do this event every second Tuesday of the month. It is an event for beat heads, like Low End Theory. There were not many people there last night, but I saw a lot of beat makers there, such as The Gas Lamp Killer, Ras G, Tokimonsta, Dibiase, Snowman, etc. The Gas Lamp Killer gave me his new 10". I got it autographed.
All the DJs were playing grimy beats off of their laptop. Some of the DJs were not even using turntables or DJ mixer. He was mixing tracks in his laptop. This is a whole new scene to me. I actually like this type of music though.
