HotPot vol.12 with South Rakkas Crew

Saturday, January 10th, 2009



Jan. 10th, 2009

HOTPOT #12 brings the very special guests, the South Rakkas Crew (SRC), from the U-S-A.  Comprised of DJ Dow Jones and MC Alex G, the South Rakkas Crew originally hail from Jamaica and are now currently based in Florida where they record under Diplo’s Mad Decent record label.

Growing up with a rich and electic musical background in dancehall, reggae, pop, hip hop, new wave, etc., the South Rakkas Crew perfectly complements HOTPOT’s DJ Wordy and DJ Lomang’s musical aesthetic.

Having toured with the likes of Sinden, Switch, and Diplo across Canada, Sweden, England, Scotland, France, Germany, Switzerland, Finland, and Australia, this will be SRC’s *first appearance in Asia*.  Check their recent EP, “South Rakkas Mix Up,” and get ready for the SRC’s unique blend of Electro and Dance Hall.  And you already know how Wordy do.

For the Beijing revelers tired of hearing the same commercial hip hop and/or house tracks over and over night after night, HOTPOT brings together an eclectic crowd united by the noble goals of (1) zoomma-zoom-zoom’ing (in your boom boom…per your discretion) and (2) just having fun.  Mixing it up from Golden Era hip hop to funk to rock n’ roll to mashups and electro/hipster ish, HOTPOT is already Beijing’s first world-class party for music lovers’ with world-class booty, jiggling to exclusive tracks from New York to Berlin.

No hype, just bangers.
