I love this.
Small worlds lead to big nights. Conversation among friends leading to opportunities. Long story, after kicking it w/ my man Steve, he used to tell me about one of his former students (among the many), and told me about how he and his pals had this beat session going on where they would flip a sample and complete it very shortly after. A quasi exercise in production. This then spread amongst friends, and eventually became what we know as Team Supreme, and they just released a record/compilation via Alpha Pup.
We had been in touch w/ LA's Djemba Djemba when he was still using his older moniker, and were glad to get back up with him. He's been very busy applying his craft producing under the Mad Decent flag, releasing on Jeffrees as well as his own label Rabbit Records. To boot, he's got that Team Supreme, a quasi book club for producers, as they've share samples and flip them for each other's enjoyment. HE stays busy. Djemba's 1st release came from the Jeffrees label in 2011, and has seen support from the biggest names (Diplo, Rusko & The Gaslamp Killer to name a few). On the heels of a recent Low End Theory performance, we are welcoming him to Toronto.
With that, it's our pleasure to announce:

We are very pleased to announce the addition of the mighty Christian Andersen (Xi) to this stellar bill, marking his glorious return to Toronto.
