The STR8 Westcoastin Episode
This week the crew welcomes DJ Still Life, creator of Str8 West Coastin, a West Coast hip-hop party hosted in Brooklyn every summer. We talk about how Still Life got started DJing in California, and how legendary crews like the Beat Junkies and Invisibl Skratch Piklz inspired him. Then we switch gears to discuss his experiences DJing in NYC over the last decade. We get into minutiae of planning and hosting your own party, including how to find the right venue, dealing with food vendors, the role of marketing/advertising, and finding the right mix of music, vibes, and frequency that can help make the party a success. If you are in Brooklyn on Saturday, August 19, drop by Project Parlor in Bed-Stuy for the final Str8 West Coastin party of the summer.
