SHAMBHALA 2011 was an amazing experience, i got to rock killer sets on the beach, and also at The Funk Jam, there were some GREAT sets by Nu-Mark, Skratch Bastid, A-skilz, Mat The Alien, Smalltown, Wakcutt, Vinyl Ritchie that I saw, and I'm sure, Tonnes that I missed (woud've like to have seen: Neighbour, Fort Knox and Nick Thayer's sets)! the Vibe on The beach Friday afternoon was incredible, it started out with Hoola Hoop playing the illest downtempo jams i've heard, followed by Foxy Moron (who played all 45's), Myself, Vinyl RItchie (all 45's) and the homies Fort KNox Five (Jon.H & Steve Raskin) the FUnk Jam that Smalltown puts on included: them, A Skillz, Nick Thayer, Ali B, Slynk, Malente, All Good Funk Alliance on Serato and Myself, Skratch Bastid, Mat The Alien & Ursula 1000 playing 45's......truly an experience that had to be seen to be believed! I got this little bit of video from My girl's camera that Skratch Bastid took, it's low quality and only a minute, but, you get the idea! Boom! THX so much to Hoola for bringing me there & Smalltown for letting me be a part of the Funk Jam.
