7′ OF Pleasure Tour
On Thursday, June 18th, Babylon will play host to an all encompassing evening of music and culture – one of the most complete hip-hop throwdowns this city has seen in quite some time. Staying true to the art form of “Real Djing”, the 7″ of Pleasure tour returns with a very rare All Vinyl set by hip-hop’s most legendary producer – DJ Premier. This will actually be his first return to the vinyl format since Djing went digital some 8 years ago. You can expect to hear all your favourite Gangstarr songs, some of the records he originally sampled to make all the hits, and classic NYC breaks cut back and forth like only he can. It’s been a long 6 years since he’s touched down in the nation’s capital so we’re extremely excited to have him back!
This also marks the return of Canadian heavy hitters DJ Pump, Vinyl Ritchie and DJ Illo to Babylon playing all 45RPM 7″ vinyl. Known as some of Canada’s deepest record collectors, all genres of music get touched during this interactive group set that they’ve now become known for throughout the country.
And what better way to start off the night than local preservationists and resident party rockers Timekode turn up the heat with 7″ selections of their own.
But that’s only the music! The back part of the venue will be transformed into an interactive section of culture and entertainment with Flava Factory dancers showcasing and leading b-boy circles throughout the night. Live art is also in the mix by Omar “OMS” and Monster Energy will also be showcasing and giving away a custom low rider bike to one lucky customer. There will also be ticket giveaways to this years House Of Paint festival and a merchandise table DJ Premier is setting up with a wide assortment of Gangstarr merchandise available for sale throughout the evening.
