next Faultline event - Friday, Sept. 5, 2014 - guest DJ Influence (Strategik SF)




FAULTLINE - an all Breaks monthly brought to you by Justin Johnson, Eric Riggsbee, & DJ 138

This month we bring to you,

INFLUENCE

(Strategik)

Influence started his piratical career in a time called Ye Olden School. Quickly rising through ranks of deck swabbing, plank laying, wenching, & rumming; his golden years came to end upon the capture of his ship by a band of jolly rogers on the ship Strategik (they were good with a cannon, but not so much with spelling). Locked away in the ship's depths, every night he was told, "Good night, Westley. Good work. Sleep well. I'll most likely kill you in the morning." All seemed lost, so he got into Djing, took over the ship, called himself Influence, and the rest was basically, history... basically.

coming soon - BLR017 - Go Back (Beatslappaz Remix)

Australia's bass music duo known as Beatslappaz (aka Juxtapose and Eyan) have taken Justin Johnson's "Go Back" track and given it a Holy Bass Fucker vibe of insane proportions. It's a peak-time track full of winding synth hits and of course enough bass to rock the place! Justin takes his Disco House remix that was released on Cable Recordings and gives it a proper Funky Breaks treatment.

Full release date: Oct 13, 2014

SeismiCity Events is proud to present the Bay Area's only official all Breaks monthly, "FAULTLINE," every first Friday at Lounge 3411 in Oakland!

This month we welcome Kimba (Opel Productions)

https://soundcloud.com/kimba-rose
http://www.facebook.com/djkimbarose

Kimba has graced the decks with her warrior-like presence throughout California from her home in San Francisco to San Diego, Seattle, and everywhere in between. Kimba brings a sound best described as Elegant Warrior Breaks, Drum&Bass & Techno ~ a fusion of Sweet and Heavy sounds programmed to take you on a journey through every mix. She brings deep dark basslines intertwined with melodic and musical themes to touch a cord in every dancer.

From the young age of 17, Kimba has been involved in the San Francisco Bay Area Electronic Music scene as a Promoter and DJ for clubs, undergrounds, renegades, and festivals spanning over California. First turned on by the sweet jazzy sounds of deep house music, she eventually discovered the broken beat and has been in love ever since. Kimba always finds a way to incorporate the musical and instrumental nature of her first influences into the heavy forces of bass, breakbeats, drum&bass and even techno. She truly loves this music and community and is always stoked to play any gig, from a small party to a super club, a 10,000 person street faire or a radio show. Getting people onto the dancefloor and seeing smiling, dancing people is really what makes her happy to be a DJ.
