It’s Wes Smith Yo! Tour De Dance heads to Broken Grooves in Seattle, Washington

The now famous It’s Wes Smith Yo! The Album Tour winds along it’s path to Seattle, Washington for this Saturday’s show.  Miss 137 puts the brakes on to talk with Brian Trippdub – curator of the Broken Grooves event.

Wes Smith Tour

Tell me about your event:

Broken Grooves is the longest running break beat weekly in the world. On June 7th it will be 14 and a half years. It was started at the time by a local crew by the name of the Midnight Sons, small crew of DJs, an MC and activists. The night originally started on a Tuesday and was moved to Sundays shortly after.

What is your mission for your event?

Our mission is simply to bring the best in breaks whether local or national to the Pacific North West. One thing that makes Broken Grooves special is consistency, every Sunday we attend our church and pray to the breakbeat gods, you can find us every Sunday at the same time in the same spot. Another thing that makes BG special is opportunity. We give everyone an opportunity to showcase different styles and skills, this keeps everyone involved and excited.

What is your main challenge?

The main challenge of operating a weekly is time. I have a family and its very time consuming to constantly have to book DJs, trying to get flyers made and printed, social media postings and events (and not just for BG, you need to post everywhere to get people out), trying to find last minute substitutions (cause sh*t happens), to actually being at the club for 4+ hours every Sunday. The rewards are obvious for anyone that doesn’t get paid. THE MUSIC, that brokenbeat that runs through my veins. Oh and the people in the scene are pretty cool too.

How do you choose your talent?

Talent is chosen by styles, meaning I try to book DJs that have a similar sound. Seattle has so much breaks talent and many DJs only get the chance to play Broken Grooves.

What is your background to the scene?

Everything I know I taught myself. Right out of highschool I saved up to buy 2 turntables and a mixer and proceeded to lock myself in my room trying to perfect my craft. I would spend weeks of frustration trying to match beats to 2 different genres just because I didn’t know any better, no teachers, no mentors, just me, my gear and a few records.

Tell me about the next Broken Grooves event with Wes Smith:

BG is located at the Monkey Loft 2915 1st Ave S, Seattle, Washington 98134

This is the first of many nights at our new home! Same old Broken Grooves new venue. We have a special night planned for you we are blowing the roof off this party and we start the night with the one and only Dot Diggler bringing the breaks, followed by BootyGuard hottest new breaks duo in Seattle. Closing the night is headliner Wes Smith. See you at our new home Seattle!!!

Thank you for your time Brian, having met you at this time last year I really enjoyed the vibe of Seattle and your event. You were a great host to me and I am happy to see Wes breaking the new venue’s cherry with you all.  Have tons of fun and see you on the other side.
