The New Parish, Oakland, CA
Z-Trip plays and performs in the bay area a couple times a year, but it's been several years since he's come to the city of Oakland. If you're familar with Z-Trip you already know the calibur of DJ he is. If you're unfamilar Z-Trip brings an old school true analog feel and flavor while still pushing boundries and having fun with his music choices. While rooted in the analog hip hop DJ vein, one of my favorite things about him in addition to the scratching and mixing skills he brings is his music choices. He's not afraid to mix and mash up some country with some funky soul and blues to some rock and heavy metal.
Along for the ride tonight were head "Peas" DJ Platurn and Saurus. Also on support was Goldenchyld. I saw Goldenchyld win a Red Bull Threestyle event in San Francisco a few years ago and he brought his own special flavor tonight during his set and later in the evening when he and Z-Trip had some fun with a slow jam battle. YES. A slow jam battle.
Most of the footage was shot on my iPhone 4s and the photojojo lens kit, but I've gotta thank and credit Brian Vanek (@BVan3d) for some Canon 7D footage too.
