BIG BIG BIG UPS to our homeboy DJ Barney Iller for snagging a spot on the lineup at Mad Breaks Tea Party on friday the 19th. He’s spinning with some of the finest: Marty Party (1/2 of pAnTyRaId with Ooah of the Glitch Mob, you can google them yourself) and Do Lab resident Braden. Incidentally, Braden started the 16bit & Beyond (warning: loud autoplay) party in LA, which is hosting whomp-faves Sub Swara in Los Angeles on friday. Between that and Bay area faves EPROM + ESKMO at Dub War the same night, there’s some SERIOUS East Coast/West Coast bass science cross-pollination going on this weekend!
But I digress! This post iin’t about that, it’s about the man DJ BARNEY ILLER. First off, hit play on this mix, then keep reading:
K, now that you’re startin to feel kinda wiggly, let’s get into it: Barney Iller has been makin peeps do dances they’ve never done before for many many years now as a resident at Rubulad (I think it’s so funny that there’s a Yelp page for a legendary underground party venue – since ’94, son!). My first Barney Iller experience was maybe 6 months ago, when a certain pink-haired friend of mine told me, to paraphrase,
Turns out Barney Iller is the (a?) mastermind behind that. And it was pretty much a done deal from there on out. His mixes and remixes are all choice, eclectic, and his sense of humor only serves to reinforce his sense of how to make you dance like you’re feelin the holy spirit. Fuck a tweet, follow this dude on soundcloud! RIGHT NOW!
Barney will also be gracing the decks at Bass Fueled Mischief’s next event, METROPOLIS #2 at Love, tag teaming with 45 legend Shakey (founder of the almost 4 years old now Warper parties). This event totally deserves it’s own post, but for now, just know that it is an EARTHSHATTERING lineup of NYC faves:
Oh yeah, and it’s at Santos Party House, which is the only other club sound system on par with Love’s. Seeing Joker there was the first time I’d been in the downstairs when they turned it ALL THE WAY UP. It was bone-jelllifying
