The Forty Five Kings Collective Present Dj Fib!!!

15 June 2024

I am super proud to present the 3rd Member Mix by Dj Fib, out of Brisbane, Australia and he has this to say about his mix:

Harking back to the golden era of B-Boys and break dancing, this mix is defined by the sound of the streets of New York City between 1982 and 1985 with each track reflecting the unique style and vibe of this transformative period in music that ultimately broke out of that city and infected the entire world and still resonates with many of us to this day.

These songs capture the raw energy and creativity of a time when funk and disco were evolving into new sounds influenced by latin beats, boogie funk, Hip Hop DJ’s and MC’s blended with syncopated electro beats, drum machines and synthesizers all locked down tightly by sequencers to create brand new infectious grooves that inspired a worldwide movement.

There’s no better time to revisit or discover these iconic sounds and classic songs as we celebrate the 40th anniversaries of the classic B-Boy movies Beat Street and Breakin’ and with break dancing once again about to electrify the world with its debut as a competitive sport at next month’s Paris Olympics.

Grab some cardboard or linoleum, crank up the stereo and get ready to pop, lock and break to the B-Boy Electric Boogaloo Breaks that were the timeless anthems of Street Freaks blasting out of the portable ghetto blasters onto the sidewalks and public spaces of New York and the world.

We loved the mix and if you do to, shares, reposts, comments and likes are most welcome.
