Gin & Juice presents Grandmaster Flash
On Friday 18th December, Gin & Juice London Presents Grandmaster Flash at Electric Brixton.
Hip Hop legend and multi award winner Grandmaster Flash will be bringing his revolutionary DJing style to the heart of Brixton. Dubbed as 'the first man to make the turntable a musical instrument, we have no doubt that he will bring the house down.
On support we have Leeds favourite DJ Dan Hills and Ministry of Sound regular Martin 2 Smoove.
Room 2 is set to host a Hip Hop Showdown with some of the best Hip Hop brands from around the country representing.
Event Write Up:
"With an amazing year coming to a close, we figured we had to pull out the big guns to see it off to a justifiably big end.
I think we can all agree there was one man that could certainly do that for us. The one, the only GRANDMASTER FLASH."
*** GRANDMASTER FLASH ***
One of Hip Hops founding fathers, Grandmaster Flash has been not only in the game for 30+ years, but pretty much inventing it.
The first DJ to physically lay his hands on the vinyl and manipulate it, he invented the Quick Mix Theory which included techniques such as the double back, back door, back spin and phasing. Flash's template grew to include cuttin' which in turn spawned scratching. Flash laid the groundwork for pretty much anything a DJ can do with a record today.
With not only multiple awards under his belt (Grammy, Urban Music Lifetime Achievement Award, BET I Am Hip Hop Icon Award) in 2007 he made history with The Furious Five by being the first ever Hip Hop act to be honoured with induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Safe to say this man is well and truly of legendary status and we cannot WAIT to see him lay it down!
On support in room 1 we've got Gin & Juice long standing resident and Leeds favourite party DJ, Dan Hills. Having supported the likes of Snoop, Mos Def and DJ Yella of NWA, Dan is no stranger to working a room into a Hip Hop frenzy alongside a Hip Hop ledgend.
Alongside Dan we've got Ministry of Sound regular Martin 2 Smoove who's taken his open format, party-friendly stye around the world and recently saw him secure a weekly summer residency at Pacha in Ibiza.
Room 2 is set to host a Hip Hop Showdown with some of the best Hip Hop party starters from around the country going head-to-head for ultimate glory.
