I had the great pleasure of playing the closing DJ set to Summit At Sea 2015.
More on that in a minute...
Summit At Sea 2015 featured moving and electric performances from bands like St. Lucia, Francis And The Lights and Twin Shadow, legends like Lee Fields, the youthful energy of emerging artists like Raury and Spencer Ludwig of Capital Cities-- who I counted playing with over 5 different acts, collaborating in real time with everyone from the Wailers to Thugfucker. He seemed to be everywhere, making something bespoke and one of a kind for those that happened to be in attendance.
How was the electronic music though?
Bedouin played in the middle of the ocean surrounded by thunderstorms, with the occasional warm mist in the sultry carribean heat and lightning flashes popping off like strobe lights in the distance.
A cotton candy sunrise greeted all who stuck around for Thugfucker's 4 hour storied set. The perfect soundtrack as we moved from the dark of night into a cotton candy sunrise bursting with purples, pinks and reds.. pure magic.
The rest of the weekend featured world class sets from Eduardo Castillo, Mira, Sabo, LUM, Goldcap, Timujin, Lumerian and The Scumfrog. We were truly spoiled.
On the last night, I played for an hour and then cut my set short to try something I have wanted to do for a while, DJ Teamwork. Basically bring together a lot of great dj's to create the party b2b2b....as a team, one track at a time.
What happened was amazing.
A 2 hour audiophonic journey that spanned soul, r&b, throwback electronica, techno and deep house cuts.
Ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy, DJ Teamwork - Episode 1 Feat. Brett Love (hour 1) and DJ Teamwork (Starting at 1:01) all b2b2b: LUM, Thugfucker, Sabo, Lemurian, All the Colors, Goldcap and Brett Love.
