For this, the final RIPEcast of 2012, the Space Cowboys are pleased to welcome our East Coast breakbeat brothers-in-arms, the Vitamin B crew from Brooklyn.
Now the longest-running (and only) monthly breaks party in New York City, Vitamin B eschews mandatory costumes, expensive tickets, velvet ropes, and all attendant bullsh*t in favor of cheap booze, good times, and booty-shaking beats. On the first Friday of every month, residents Tektite, Tim the Enchanter, and Barney Iller bring their signature blend of slutty, high-energy breakbeats to Bushwick’s House of Yes, raising eyebrows and lowering inhibitions with every track.
The Vitamin B sound goes beyond breakbeat to explore the outer regions of syncopated rhythm, with elements of electro, bassline, Baltimore club, UK garage, old school hardcore, dnb, and a tasteful smattering of soulful house. The surgeon general warns that listening to this mix may result in sore feet, neon urine, and an inability to locate one’s pants.
The Vitamin B crew recently played to a capacity crowd in the main room of the legendary Pacha NYC. Special guest headliners have included DJ FIXX, Udachi, Munchi, Ursula1000, Wavewhore, Michna aka Egg Foo Young, Ninelives the Cat, Morsy, Raydeus, J*Labs (Black 22’s), Duane Harriot, Lee Mayjahs?, $mall ¢hange, Alex Funk, Sequoia, and Tarquin. Upcoming guests include Deekline (2/1/2013) and Zinc (3/1/2013) – so if you find yourself in Brooklyn, c’mon out and dance!
