Summer of Badness: Craggz & Parallel Forces

Last week was our biggest yet at TEMPLE. More beer got drank, more fists got thrown up, and more people rocked the dancefloor than ever. DJs SHARP, MAL, IVRY, AYE~N and guest DJ GENOME firebombed the motherfucking house, while MCs COLONEL, AX!OM and special guest ZEZO had the crowd shouting along. WHAT COULD BE ROWDIER?


After taking time out for cheese and wine tasting, intergalactic travel and self-discovery, Craggz and Parallel Forces are back! Having fulfilled their album commitment to Valve and releasing the critically acclaimed "Northern Soul" album, the lads have decided to spread the joy and pen some original offerings for some other great labels. Over the next few months they have releases lined up on Critical, CIA, and their own label, Product Recordings.

Be sure to check their myspace for information on their bio and upcoming tracks, but trust us: C&PF ain't no usual COMPRESSION guest, and don't drop only that usual COMPRESSION sound. These guys will smooth it out, build it up , take it deep and bounce it around. If you don't know what we're talking about, check out their brand-new mix for PYRO RADIO or peep their KNOWLEDGE mix from last year with MC Deeism. Both mixes showcase C&PF's diversity, skill, and excellent sense of flow. Expect sheer D&B freshness when these dudes blow up the spot this Thursday.

Support on the night by COMPRESSION CREW's resident technicians IVRY, SHARP, and THE COLONEL.

IVRY and SHARP were on FIRE last week, people, and we anticipate even more heat from them this week when they open for C&PF. Also, Look for THE COLONEL to rip it on the mic like always, this week with special help from MC ASTRO.

Reppin the dirty dirty (well, Texas--is that the dusty dusty?), ASTRO is a serious contender for best new USDNBMC. He's lit up COMPRESSION before, and we're happy to welcome back ASTRO's fresh blend of hip-hop realism and DnB musicianship. He's a pro, maaaaaan, and will be rocking in the TEMPLE this week!

In the second room, take a break from the D&B and get sexy with the DOWN LIKE THIS DJ'S . . .
