As we embark upon Year Six of The Do-Over, we realize that the old proverb “it only gets better with age” does indeed hold some truth. It has already been a milestone of a year with our first ever Do-Lover Valentines Party to our first event outside of LA with our invasion at The Winter Music Conference in Miami which was beyond crazy (“One of the real highlights of WMC” – Gilles Peterson). Each Season we somehow manage to do it bigger and better and this Summer is no exception as we have plenty of surprises in-store. You just never know who will show up and/or where The Do-Over will show up.
Speaking of which, we kicked Do-Over 6.0 off with a first time guest and The Queen of The Beats, Miss Mary Anne Hobbs who delivered a head smacking affair of beats and dub step. If you missed this set, you will have to seek out her radio show on BBC to get a taste as this set will never see the light of day. The only person who could follow a set like that was none other than The Funky President himself – J.Rocc who proved once again he is one of the All-Time Greats to ever bless the decks. We were treated to a very rare two hour set of disco, house, broken beat & uptempo madness. And the only person who could follow a set like that and close it out was none other than bday boy (thee) Mike B rocking an all vinyl set. From the moment Blaqstarr joined him on the opening song to the last song of the evening, Mike B had folks in a dancing frenzy.
What’cha Wanna Do? Do-Over!
