The Boom Bap - a celebration of Hip Hop culture and golden era Hip Hop. The brainchild of Take it 2 the Bridge founder and ex Funkin Pussy party smasher DJ Hudge, The Boom Bap has been going from strength to strength in the year it has been around. After playing host to DJ Ollie Teeba (The Herbaliser), Brad Balloo (The Nextmen), DJ Food (Ninja Tune), Tha Dump (Funkin Pussy), Mr Thing (Extended Players, BBE), Marc Seven (Shell Toe Soul), Dan Greenpeace, Dr Rubberfunk, Big Ted, DJ Vadim and Classic Material's Chris Read we have decided that one night a month is not enough. "We need more" has been the cry and we have awnsered!
The Boom Bap is moving to bi- monthly Wednesdays at the mighty Hoxton Pony so that we can have this dope jam twice a month. To start this new night we thought we'd come out all guns blazing. On the 5th of October The Boom Bap residents DJ Hudge and Shredded Pete have enlisted the help of one of the best Hip Hop DJs around - The UK DMC champion - DJ Matman.
DJ Matman is one of London's most prolific DJs - his world-class technical skills have owned him the titles of UK DMC Supremacy Champion, London DMC Champion, ITF World Finalist and European Turntable Techniques Champion. He also a co-founder, podcaster, DJ and writer for Droppin' Science - one of London's freshest Hip Hop collectives. Watch out for the forthcoming DJ based video game 'SKILLZ' where Matman has teamed up with his multi award winning brother DJ Daredevil to create this game which has already picked up an award for 'Excellence in Audio'. Big tings!
