Scotty’s Music Monday: Bmore Club and Shout out to me
I am Scott Birdsey, born and raised here, and I’m gonna be posting up tracks and mixtapes that will make you pee your pants and otherwise might’ve passed you by. I’m real down with mostly all of the regional club music thats been coming out in the y2k.Â I DJ and make tracks as Mycon, and do parties and mixtapes with Looney as Deep Children.
I also started a moped gang in Albany called Mohawk Mammoths, so I might end up throwing up some moped porn on here to try and recruit some more kids who want to ride around on toys from the 70s. We sandblast and powdercoat too if you got a bicycle or headgear you want done.
Anyone who’s been to any of our parties has heard me play B-more, cause it was the first real outsider club music I fell in love with. It bounces around in content between raunchy, comical, block party feel good, and Lil’ Jon.Â 90% of B-more is built around one of two breaks – Sing Sing by Gaz or Think by Lyn Collins. Hollertronix and a few others brought it out of BmoreÂ around 2003, but it had been knocking clubs and radio in the city for more than 10 years before then.
Anyway Dubstep and London in general has kinda killed B-more, at least for the hipster types, but there’s still bangers being made in kid’s basements and it’s still going hard in Philly, Baltimore, and in random cities with DJs like me.
Bottom line is there’s a deep culture around it, like any good regional dance music, and if you’re into it, you can go way down the rabbit-hole going back through its roots.Â Here is a recent mixtape from DJ Sega, one of the best:
