On The Floor! The Do-Over x RBMA Radio (September 2011)

The Do-Over set off on their craziest California adventure to date with 3 full days of sunshine and sangria this September as we kicked off things for 2 days in Palm Springs with The Sleep-Over followed by an not-so-epic morning flight to San Francisco where we were greeted by a massive crowd at The Phoenix Hotel for The Do-Over SF.

Some of the sets from this trip were featured on Red Bull Music Academy Radio… Enjoy!

Sunday January 16th: The Lei-Over (Hawaii Edition)

The Do-Over crew and family ventured to Honolulu, Hawaii for our first ever party on the islands, The Lei-Over, presented by adidas Originals. Check out The Do-Over crew soaking up the island sangria and letting it all out. We were also excited to experience our first-ever wedding proposal during the party (“I Do-Over?”). Congrats to Jason and Ruby!!!

Special thanks to Dâm-Funk, (thee) Mike B, Dirty Dave, Eskae, Delve and Byze One who joined Haycock, Strong and Blacc on the music side of things. Thanks to Luke at HUMANHAND for the video and Jon Radke for the photos. Big ups to Zeke and the good folks at thirtynine hotel and The Edition. Extra extra love to all of our friends in Hawaii, new and old. We can’t wait to come back!

The Do-Over Portland v.2 Recap (August 22nd, 2010)

Wow! So we are convinced Portland likes to party. We are fully advised that Portland likes to party at The Do-Over. From the look on everyone’s faces throughout the day, it was difficult not to come to that conclusion. Our second installment of The Do-Oregon was a smashing success. Our first edition was great and this easily surpassed it in energy according to those lucky enough to enjoy both.

The Do-Over’s Aloe Blacc and Haycock handled the hosting duties, while Portland friend Ohmega Watts repped for the locals. LA’s own (thee) Mike B & Adam 12 provided all sorts of smiles for the 2nd half of the day, switching off every half hour, easily topping the levels that we predicted.

Big thanks to adidas for the continued support in Portland. Many thanks to Red Bull and Bacardi for extra support. Special shouts to the Portland staff headed by Connie and Alan.

We will return for the 3rd and final installment of 2010 on Sunday September 19th. We will be bringing our biggest lineup to date. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Go ahead and RSVP at www.thedoover.net/portland

Week One Recap (May 16th, 2010)

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.
