250 Productions of San Francisco/Los Angeles will present A Meeting of The Tribes, a collaboration of beats, groove and art featuring Sound Tribe Sector 9, Wonder Bred, Derrick Starr, DJ James Christopher and Particle at Cafe’ Club Fais Do Do in Los Angeles on December 2nd.
Recently transplanted from Athens, Georgia to Santa Cruz, Sound Tribe Sector 9’s community of transcendental euphoria has been sweeping across North America on a tour of sonic and visual spectacles. DJ Wonder Bred of Los Angeles has consistently been spinning a mix of funky house and break beats in the Southland for the last three years. Noted for his clean, tight mixes, L.A.’s own Derrick Starr spins from old school to new school, from house breaks to acid breaks to trance breaks and back again. Also contributing to the transformation of the evening will be Southern California’s DJ James Christopher and rising stars Particle, fresh off performances at 250 Productions’ San Francisco Bay Boogie on ‘Til the Break of Dawn Phish Tour-closing boat cruise celebration. See below for a review of Particle's 11/11/00 performance at the Club Fais Do Do.
A favorite of John Coltrane’s when visiting Los Angeles, Cafe’ Club Fais Do Do is a gumbo of eclectic music and diverse people coming together to build a stronger community by offering exposure to new cultures, foods, sounds and philosophies. 250 Productions plans to contribute to Fais Do Do’s rich history on the evening of Saturday, December 2nd with a memorable event for all at A Meeting of the Tribes.
Tickets for A Meeting of the Tribes are $10 in advance, available at www.420Tickets.com, and $13 at the door.
Particle | 11/11/2000 | Club Fais Do Do, Los Angeles, CA
As the full moon was lighting up the sky, and Club Fais Do Do was filling up quickly for Particle and Project Logic, there was definitely a feeling of electrified anticipation in the air.
Particle took the stage for their second Los Angeles gig, and the crowd immediately began to get their groove on. Bassist, Eric Gould slapped down some CLASSIC funk, to be matched by the wizardry of Steven Mulletz’s keys, Darren Pujalet’s “drop the hammer” beats, and Dave Simmon’s panoramic magic on the guitar. The sound of 70’s electric piano and 80’s synthesizer meshed with 90’s techno beats, created an addictive sound that not only got the toes tapping, but REALLY got people moving.
Particle’s energy was over the top throughout the entire show. Their next level jams methodically intensified. As their sustained jamming worked the crowd into a frenzied mob, the show finally culminated in a highly charged Pipe Dream to close the set.
