Well, it’s quite uncommon for us (being based in Germany) to post about parties on the other side of the globe, but this one got me interested.
First: Because I got told that there is no proper Tropical Bass party up to now in Philly – imagine, Mad Decent is based in that city! Reminded me a bit of the situation in Berlin, my love-hated hometown (read our interview with Man Recording’s Daniel Haaksman if you want to know how it feels to run a label in a city that does not catch up on your vibe)…
Second: They got Uproot Andy spinning on their premier party, and all I can say is: Hey Philly, don’t miss on that! Expect Dembows mashed up with folk tunes, crunked out cumbia, dancehall mania en español, coupé décale collides with hip-hop, Carnival mass hysteria, kuduro avec grande vitesse, soca-fied funky house.
Third: I’m curious. Do we have readers based in Philadelphia? Let’s start kind of a statistical investigation – holla at us, folks. And to all our readers: would you like to read more about international dates and tours?
