Enter Brazilian drum nâ bass legend and V Recordings artist DJ Marky, teamed up with the legendary MC Stamina for the drum nâ bass party of the century for Hong Kong. Undoubtably one of the most talented and electrifying DJâs to emerge in the under populated scene of drum nâ bass in recent years DJ Marky broke through the glass ceiling with his album âThe Brazilian Jobâ. His phenomenal technical skill however was not what kept the crowdâs overt attention at Skitz Night Club, the DJ Marky and MC Stamina tour hot spot; it was his energetic enthusiasm and passion for the music that is his signature alone.
Joining Marky on the tour was MC Stamina whose popularity has been ever increasing since connecting with the Movement crew and working with popular Brazilian DJâs, such as Marky and Patife. There however are simply not words to describe the full capacity of MC Staminaâs abilities. Not only does he create lyrics that seamless mould to the instrumental side of drum nâ bass, but his spellbinding delivery is absolutely magical.
The night was filled with raw energy and passion that was easy to see with the packed out dance floor and non-stop movement of the entire crowd, which is simply not a common site for Hong Kongâs typical drum nâ bass nights. So what this says to me is two things: first, DJ Marky and MC Stamina exhibit unsurpassed talent, expertise, and versatility and here in Hong Kong we can only dream of their return, and second, that the drum nâ bass scene here in Hong Kong has been kick started and is finally receiving the attention it deserves. Continuing along this note leaves me to enter a plug for the party organizers âKoncrete Jungleâ, who have relentlessly and persistently been pushing the local drum nâ bass scene for a number of years, and lets hope that their recent successes will give all of us die hard fans more great music to look forward to.
