It’s Wes Smith Yo! Burning Man 2015 Tour @ Dusty Poon Saloon

Wes Smith kicks off his broken beat tour of Burning Man 2015 @ the Dusty Poon Saloon.  When Chuck Wheeler (of the Dusty Poon Saloon) and and I finally caught up, he was just getting back from fishing with a big yellowtail catch in his cooler for dinner.  With Burning Man coming up soon, the buzz and excitement was clear in his voice.  We sat down and talked about Burning Man, Wes Smith and what makes a Dusty Poon.

Dusty Poon Saloon

Tell me about your history with Burning Man camp “Dusty Poon Saloon”?

I’m one of the co-creators of the camp. Myself and 4 other close friends started it back in 2010 and this will be my 5th burn since 2009.  The Saloon has been growing and growing each year, we started with 20 camp mates and today we have 55 people with us.
 Dusty Poon Saloon 2
 What is the camp about?
Our theme camp is definitely for the people of Burning Man and the community.  We are a bunch of givers and have a multitude of things to offer.  In addition to having some of the best cocktails on the playa, we set up an old Western photo booth and provide 1000s of costumes with different backdrops.  Back in 2009 we were brought car buffers to the playa since then we have been buffing people’s buns for them to combat what the desert does to them.  We also do a lot of theatricals including wild western showdowns, we do communal burn pits and throughout the week we throw parties.  We bring a large sound system and equipment to the playa so our camp is one for people to come in to enjoy, dance, have a great time and stay awhile.

Dusty Poon Saloon

How did you meet Wes Smith and decide to include him for Poon shenanigans?

We went to Electric Poncho in Mexico and Dusty Poon put together a renegade camp on the side of a cliff that overlooked the whole canyon. We brought down an bunch of booze and put up our saloon doors and threw a RAGER all night with DJs playing.  My buddy Ben met Wes and they hung out together and got along well.  I also ran into him at Kava Lounge (San Diego) at a event and we hit it off there.  He showed a lot of interest and we consider our camp a breakbeat camp. His style really fits with what we like so we invited him to play this year at the saloon.

Wes Smith

Tell me about the events you are throwing at the Dusty Poon:

We have 2-3 parties throughout the week and our big blow out feature party with Wes is called “The Poon at Noon” on Wednesday from noon-6pm.  We are going to have a giant cactus that blows fire out of the top and this year we are going to try to do a ghost pepper Russian roulette wheel…spin the wheel with one ghost pepper shot.  Anyone who wants to step up though we have ghost pepper bourbon or vodka all week. It gives you a euphoric feeling once you get past your mouth burning but then the endorphins come out that gives you a natural high.

Well I can’t wait to meet you on the playa and get down and dusty at the Poon, Chuck!  

Come join the crew all week and especially Wednesday for the Poon at Noon and Thursday at 9pm for Chuck’s birthday. Happy Birthday!

Playa placement: 4th & C

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.

Broken Grooves 1

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.

It’s Wes Smith Yo! Album Tour Heads for Charleston with DJ Skitch

Rolling on from NYC, Wes heads for Charleston SC to throw down with DJ Skitch.  Continuing my IWSY info gathering mission, I caught up with Kit Giles (aka Skitch) for this leg of the tour. I poked around for some intel on the breaks scene in SC and Kit’s take on things.  Check the event and interview below.

Wes Smith - Charleston

How did you start out in your scene?

I started listening to trance and drum & bass but the first events I attended were breaks shows so when I finally heard breakbeats I said WHAT IS THIS and I was hooked. I got into breakdancing and started djing. Breaks was really all I knew and I am very thankful I was brought into the breaks scene. I think that it’s the most loving of all EDM genres and I am glad to see it rapidly growing back to where it was years ago.

We met up in Miami for the Winter Music Conference. What was your favorite Miami moment?

Definitely opening up for Monk with Aaron Sigmon at the Industry Social (Project Mayhem) event. I loved Monk even before I had become a dj so it was almost surreal. Also, Icey crushed it on that system at the Dog Eat Dog event. Tommy Sunshine at Future Sound of Breaks was absolutely amazing. The way he played was so unique I really enjoyed it. Christian Martin at the Stanton Warriors event was so good. Considering he doesn’t really identify himself as a breakbeat artist, I thought what he did was unique and fresh.

(btw- I was there for that one I think you both did a phenomenal job)

SkitchCharleston used to be a place I would frequent edm shows when I lived in the South. How do you keep the musical interest alive in your city?

We started working with colleges and we would look to book opening support of all genres and bring in a large breaks headliner. It opens people’s eyes to the genre because they are there to support their friends and the college crowd brings in the youth to the scene. Once they hear the headliner, they are blown away and they want to know what this music is that they are hearing, it has been working – our shows are very well attended.

What shows are you currently throwing?

On Thursday nights we do a full EDM show at Club NV called the “Charleston EDM Series” but EDM is growing in South Carolina so we try to do additionally a regional or national act at least once a month. The Wes Smith tour is going to be the one year anniversary for our EDM series so we wanted to book someone special for the occasion.

Damn right! Well, I thank you Kit for sharing all of this with myself and the rest of us reading about the Charleston scene. We wish you luck and have fun on Thursday!

Wes Smith’s Q & A w/ DJ Loomer of The Cruz Coalition

Stop #3 on the It’s Wes Smith Yo #MagicFugu tour includes a supporting slot for the mighty Stanton Warriors.  It takes a lot of work to make events happen, so I dug behind the scenes a bit to find out who’s making the gears turn.  I was able to get a few words with DJ Loomer of The Cruz Coalition, who is essential in promoting the Rebel Bass show this Friday, March 20th @ King King in Los Angeles, CA.  Check it below.

What is the The Cruz Coalition?

The Cruz Coalition is a partnership between Art Cruz and David Loomstein (Loomer) that produces and promotes live music events in Southern California, and manages production and staffing for dance music events around the world. International events include Coachella, EDC (LA, Las Vegas, Mexico, New York, Puerto Rico), Beyond Wonderland (LA, SF), Lightning in a Bottle, Envision Festival, Boogaloo Mountain Jam and more.

What other shows have you produced in your area?

ONE LA with Elite Force / Simon Shackleton, Opulent Temple White Party LA with Crystal Method (2013), Lee Coombs (2014), Funkagenda (2015), Dark Karnival LA with Mafia Kiss (2014).

So, we met at Burning Man, I hear you’ve been a few times, any memorable moments?

2015 will be my 10th year running. So many memorable moments, but one that happened in my first year involved a naked run across the playa to the famous Belgian Waffle on the afternoon before they burned it. I was permitted to cross the police line around it and have an unguarded (literally and figuratively) moment with one of the great functional art pieces I’ve ever experienced. Special.

Tell me a little about your DJ/Producer life?

I began DJing with the intention to produce, and have been fortunate to play in front of so many great audiences at shows and festivals in the U.S. and beyond. There is a common element to my sound – it’s minimalist, with a funky, driving breakbeat that may or may not occasionally morph into dirty, phat house. Lyrics are spare yet intentional.

Just getting rolling as a producer, with a ton of edits, six original remixes (releases on illeven:eleven, Teknical Funk, Booty Trax) and counting. I’ve spent the last few months on sound design and production work-flow and am loving the results jamming with four different, connected instruments in the studio. This will carry over into a live show that will offer plenty of spontaneity and surprises.

What’s Next for You and your Crew?

We are setting our spring lineup of dance nights in LA, and participating in a few of California’s favorite home-grown festivals.


Awesome stuff David, see you all Friday and at the next Burn;)
