  DJ Rap 3.28.99
by Kevin Price

Venue: The Warehouse - Atlanta, GA
Presented by: Pleazure

Kevin PriceI would like to begin by offering not only thanks, but some sort of ritual sacrifice, to Pleazure for bringing DJ Rap to Atlanta. In one of only eight U.S. dates this year, the "most important DJ of the new millennium" according to the March Mixer Magazine, graced our fair city with an amazing performance at the Vault.

DJ Rap was joined by MC LP during her set, and the two worked the crowd into a swirling frenzy of celebration. There was a larger percentage of the crowd dancing than at almost any other event that I've witnessed, and it wasn't just the percentage that was so impressive, it was the enthusiasm with which they danced that got me. Everyone that attended the event seemed thrilled to be there, eager to be a part of the vibe that Rap and LP wove for our benefit.

Not only did DJ Rap tear up the decks with some familiar material, but she blessed us by spinning a virgin dubplate as well. She has said that she didn't want to put drum and bass on her major label release because she felt as if the general public wasn't ready for music that is still so underground. It seemed by the smile on her face and on the faces of everyone in the crowd, that Atlanta was more than ready for her and her music. The folks from Pleazure really brought a treat for us in DJ Rap, and anyone who missed it missed something special.

DJ Wednesday followed up with some jungle sounds that proved that Atlanta locals are hot on the heels of international talent. He kept the crowd dancing until the wee hours of the morning and didn't stop droppin' bass. Look for both Wednesday and LP in an upcoming article profiling the jungle scene in Atlanta that will include samples of their work.
