dear West Coast peoples, this is a quick reminder that I’ll be playing at Portland’s Holocene tomorrow night (1st time in Pdx in ages and its only 5 bucks), and at a big Surya Dub party in San Francisco on Saturday.
tell a friend to tell a friend to form an army and march it on through:
…to the tropical bass & dutty selections of DA hermanos Rupture & Geko Jones this Saturday, late, BK loft style. i got elsewheres to be earlier so expect me on around 3:30… party goes til we find the sun again.
hi my name is DJ Rupture and I WILL BE SELLING ALL OF MY RECORDS at the Brooklyn Flea on Sunday Sept 14th. OK, so probably not all of them. Maybe just 300-500 of them… whatever, I don’t buy bad records so the selection will be choice.
And the day before that, there will be another FIESTA SOOT @ Manhattan’s Bowery Poetry Clubb, lineup TBC.
from The Fader blog:
“For more than a year now little bits of cumbia detritus have been washing up on our screens from all corners—white labels from SF’s Bersa Discos label, uncredited cumbia crunk border radio-style party blends from somewhere in TX, uncredited youtube clips of dubbed out accordion jams…After awhile we felt the need to get the full story behind these mysterious artifacts, so we enlisted the most well-rounded cumbiologist we know; DJ /Rupture aka writer Jace Clayton, to get on the case.
Having been involved in everything from remixes to chicha and Colombian roots reissues, Jace seemed uniquely positioned to give us an overview of the century old genre, so we took him at his word when he said Buenos Aires was the current hot spot and the ultimate origin point of much of the stuff we’d been hearing and hearing about. One plane ticket later, Jace and photographer Gabriele Stabile had embarked on a documentary mission to BA that resulted in a Summer Music issue feature. And now here it is in web-form; back on our screens, where it all started. After you’re done reading the feature, check out Jace guest columning this week’s Ghetto Palms on cumbia here.”

DJ Rupture – Villera Palms cumbia mix with full tracklist/writeup
this just in! DJ C of Mashit, longtime friend & awesome purveyor of bass & breaks, will be mashing up Brooklyn tonite
Yes, Dutty Artz is a recording label with actual (and digital) records in stores, tremendously talented musicians, one extremely dedicated operative, and supporters.
Here’s a tune from DUTTY REMIX ZERO which is still fresh in the stores. This remix is great, but you should really hear SHADETEk’s “Can’t Breathe” remix.
Cauto – Bona Vida
Rupture and JahDan are in the middle of their UK trek. If you are in the area, go and see them! Something wonderful happens when these two are together. Check DATV001 for proof.

We also got teh mixes –
Geko Jones New York Tropical; live on WFMU is still up + popping.
Taliesin got some dark dark dark for ya… Well, it ain’t so dark, but it is.
