“50 told me: go ‘head, switch the style up and if they hate then let ‘em hate and watch the money pile up” - Kanye West
With Kanye West and 50 Cent proudly looking on, it gives me great pleasure to officially “switch my style up”. I’m breaking my DJ/production personality in two: Austin Gregory plays progressive house and trance. Period. Check him out, he’s awesome. Hella Beats, though, is not restrained by genre labels.
Under my new DJ persona I am freed to play whatever new hotness catches my ear: uptempo or mid; broken beats or fixed; grimy or pristine; house, breaks, funk, wobble, Hip Hop, dubstep (yeah, I said it) or moombahton; it’s all on the table. Which brings us to this set right here.
The new sounds catching my ear of late are: nu-funk, mid-tempo wobble, Ghetto Breaks and moombahton. Don’t even trip if you haven’t heard of these, we’re talking micro EDM sub genres here. What’s important is that they all go about 100-110 BPM and get heads bobbing, booties shaking and bodies grinding.
I am totally drinking this mid-tempo Kool Aid and I invite you to try a glass. It’s refreshing, cool, and ohh so funky in the best of ways! Drink up!
