D.O.T.S J ZOOMBA – PIRI PIRI MixtApe

Vodpod videos no longer available.

PIRI PIRI: AN INTRODUCTION by J. ZOOMBA

This mix is the outcome of a beautiful email (below) sent to DRUMZ from a young man called J. ZOOMBA. Hailing from Spain and recently transported to South London, he wrote to tell us that amongst other things, he believes we have similar taste in music…he wasn’t wrong.

Noteably, the tracklist features artists such as Canblaster, Jamie George, French Fries & Riffs and is riddled with earworms, that I for one, have had the pleasure of feeling at some brilliant Youngunz, Club Cheval & Night Slugs nights here in Paris where D.O.T.S is currently based.

As well as being a sonic postcard of current Friday & Saturday bass orientated dancefloors, this mix is also an exciting indication of what to expect from J Zoomba’s new audio-visual night of the same name – PIRI PIRI, set to hit South London’s Amersham Arm’s on April 2. Expect great things.

Here’s the original email from J Zoomba :

I’m 22, London born, but was brought up in Spain where I started the first international Dubstep/Bass Culture nights about 4 years ago. Back then they didn’t have a clue how to take it (like most), but we kept on pushing and now its one of the main urban nights in the country.

We’ve managed to bring all types of bass heads, from Martelo and Redlight through to The Heatwave, Congo Natty, Foreign Beggars, Baobinga……… most of them for the first time in the south of Spain (we were based in Granada).

I’ve just moved back to south London a few months ago and have been working on a fresh take on the UK bass scene with a few like minded producers, trying to incorporate the Latin influence as much as we can.

We’ve started up a crew called PIRI PIRI, and we’ll also be putting on nights in south London (the first being the 2nd April). It’s mostly aimed to break down the barriers between the different UK bass scenes, and hopefully inject a bit of the unpretentious Spanish party vibe into the dance!
We’ll also be putting on documentaries before the gigs, based around the music we’re promoting (be it Baile Funk, Dancehall, Dubstep.. we’ve been speaking to this guy about putting on screenings of his mind blowing docs: http://rosforth.com/).
The venue is the Amersham Arms, and its also has a really vibesy little gallery in the top floor that we would be looking to use.
Finally, I heard Martelo’s mix you put up a few weeks back, absolutely massive. Like I said I feel we’re on a similar musical wavelength.
The mix is 1hr of jams, mostly on a skankin’ garage/funky tip, with the odd juke bootleg thrown in, a whole heap of dubs, plus some from myself and the Piri Piri mansdem!

LAVA GALLERY PRESENTS  GEORGINA COOK
 

17-23 February 2011

Opening Exhibition Party
Thursday 17th February 2011 | 6PM-9PM | Free Entry
MUSIC FROM MARTELO & SKIPPLE

The bright spark behind Drumzofthesouth returns to London to showcase her photography.

The Drumzofthesouth blog played a big part in the development of the Dubstep scene, from it’s early days in South London to it’s current position as a global movement. What started as a blog later became a monthly club night, which took place at Plan B in Brixton. Georgina Cook now lives in Paris, but she is returning to London to hook up with LAVA Gallery for this event.

Martelo and Skipple are dropping by to DJ at the opening party on 17th February.
