On August 15th in the heart of Philadelphia we will debut our new 2013 “CodeNamePhantom” collection to the world. We teamed up with long time fashion staple Ubiq to bring you the long anticipated event. Babylon Cartel ( For Years ) has always been a fan of music and we thought it would be only right to bring some of the the best DJs in the game right now to throw it down. Let us introduce you to the soundtrack for the night!
Maybe it’s the enviable mix of impeccable production skill and tempered, rhythmic eccentricity that distinguishes her tracks, forcing you to sit up and start clicking around for more after hours of unsatisfying grazes through SoundCloud.
Maybe it’s the startling swagger-saturated confidence and flow with which she raps on her own cuts (and occasionally freestyles a cappella). Maybe it’s that she’s a woman in the Baltimore and Jersey club music scenes, which—like many others—have been identified almost exclusively with male DJs. These are only a few reasons why Uniique, since starting to DJ parties only a year ago, has been on a steep trajectory to notoriety alongside childhood friends Nadus and DJ Sliink, members of Jersey Club godfather DJ Tameil’s infamous Brick Bandits Crew, and rising stars in NYC’s underground club circuit.
She’s currently set to be featured on a host of upcoming releases including Buzz Trillington’s debut EP on TwerkOut Records, Tommy Jacob’s “Kool & The Beat EP” on La Fille De L’Air Records and on a collab EP with The Westside Shmucks. Teaming up with the likes of Babylon Cartel’s Gianni Lee, Noms, El Cucuy, Yolo Bear and others on tracks, it’s clear she keeps good company.
Philadelphia based DJ/producer Joey “Dirty South Joe” Massarueh, is widely regarded as one of North America’s most influential musical tastemakers and trendsetters. As a DJ, his party rocking skills are legendary, leading Australia’s Beat Magazine to refer to him as a “Rembrandt of the dance floor.”
He’s a highly decorated underground luminary, and has been instrumental in the development and rising popularity of burgeoning music scenes such as Club, Trap & Global Bass.
As the head of New Jersey and Philly’s Brick Bandits crew, he’s catapulted the DJ & producer collective to a position of global club and trap dominance, while playing a key role in launching the careers of DJ Sliink, Swizzymack, Nadus and DJ Sega among others.
A mix tape auteur; his Luvstep and Blood Bros series’ for Diplo’s Mad Decent label (co authored with Flufftronix & DJA respectively) have been enjoyed by millions, and in the case of Luvstep, developed into a full fledged sub genre.
A self professed “innovation addict,” he tirelessly works to propel new and exciting music trends and sounds to the forefront of today’s ever evolving music marketplace and will continue to lead the way for years to come
