Are you ready for what's about to hit?
This summer, Compression is on FIRE, with Danny the Wildchild, Bachelors of Science, Social Security, DJ SS with MC Tali, Craggs and Parallel forces, and the one and only Bryan Gee. This week, we get the destruction started in style, with Portland DnB champion, DJ SHYLOK
Head of the notorious GODZ OF THUNDER crew and responsible for helping to build the Portland scene into the juggernaut it is today, SHYLOK is one sexy motherfucker who knows how to rock the house and rock it HARD. Often partnered with the mighty NOAH D and the OOPS crew (including SF's own ROOMATE), SHYLOK is a technically skilled DJ who ain't afraid to drop some bangers you might not otherwise hear at Compression. Rough and funky, SHYLOK always rocks a perfect progression, so get yourself ready to dance your ass off.
(Colonel also says: "Hey bitches, SHYLOK was the first DJ to book me as an MC, is the leader of the first crew I ever joined (G.O.T. forever, baby!), and is one of the best DJ's I've ever played with. He's also smooth all over like a girl and has real purty lips.")
Check out Shylok (and catch a mix) at the G.O.T. site.
Also on the night: Compression's own DJ AYE~N AND THE COLONEL MC
What else can we say about these pimps? AYE~N is back from his alcohol-and-sailing induced leave of absence; Colonel is getting ready for the unbelievably huge STATESIDE party in LA this weekend; both are undeniably out of control when they play together. Like the song says: THEY THE BIGGEST BOSS THAT YOU SEEN THUS FAR!! Roll out and watch them shake the foundations of the universe.
Plus the smooth funk of the mighty mighty DJ SHARP!
He's laughing because not even he can believe how smooth his last mix turned out. The man is a machine, a highly calibrated mixing machine. Expect perfection from the SHARP--he always fucking delivers!!
