Welp, one of the best holidays of the year is here one mo’gain.
Heres a look at some spots where we feel you should be doin the damn thang. Cuz we’re getting doooooowwn, ya diiiiiiig?!
Moombahton Massive @ Grand Central:
We fux with Moombahton, HEAVY.
To me it sounds like electro reggaeton and also party gods answering my prayers of bassy music that sessy girls can really get down to. Hot girls fuck with dubstep but with moombahton you get also get the girls that usually go out in heels and shit and make them act like releasing their inner chonga. If you’ve never heard it but enjoy having fun then shut your face and stop by. This is a who’s who of Moombahton move makers. Im excited to see the Buraka Som Sistema mc set cuz I aint seent that before. Ive seen J-Wow spin before and he’s dope. Im ru-heeeeeally hoping one cat who shall remain unmentioned comes through and rips shit. Moombahton Massive in Miami without him just wouldnt be right. Sandungueo!!!
* I also want some fukkin Nada empanadas and Smoothie Wolf.
Check this out in the mean time:
Nadastrom x Sabo – HARD Miami Moombahton Massive Mix
Smog vs Basshead @ Mekka
Fukkin ay, dawg. Really? This needs no type of explanation. I guess this is dedicate to the folks that swore dubstep was a trend and would only last a few months. Sucks to be you. Years later we still have this going on. All I can say is get there early cuz it will sell out and be packed as fuck. Smog and Basshead dont mess around.
More bass than you’ll know what to do with. Rill tawk.
*Much respect to Juan Basshead for holding down Miami forever.
* Fools Gold rap party
Future Sound of Breaks – 10yr Anniversary @ Mekka
This lineup is too intense.
Much respect to Mr Glynn Morgan and his crew for continuously putting together top notch madness.
“The Mothership has landed, MIAMIIIIIIII” -12th Planet
I hit up Danny from Media Contender because I wanted to come through for the show at the Fillmore even though it had been sold out for months. He said yes but asked that I cover all 3 Mothership parties that weekend.
I got to the Fillmore after 9pm. They’re really puntcual there and 12th Planet has just begun his set when I walked in. The crowd was live. It was an all ages show though so I kept my gangster to a minimum. 12th Planet is a G. After his set I chilled backstage w/ some of the Slow Roast fam and watched magic for a bit but got kicked out of backstage for being too handsome. At least thats what I think. The girl that kicked me out was really formal so theres no beef. Anyway I went out front because Skrillex was already on. The Cell (motion capture stage setup device thing )was dope. I kept seeing footage of it pop up online and had to witness it in person. Im positive a lot of people had the time of their lives at the show.
“Put your hearts up”
I wanted to make sure I had time to get to the next event so I bounced before it ended and inhaled a slice of pizza to cushion the alcohol I was getting ready to drink. Off to Grand Central for round 2.
12th Planet was headlining the after party and a *special guest* was scheduled too. It was obvious to me the second I got the notice about the show who it was gonna be. A good amount of people didnt know so that must’ve been a sweet surprise to see Skrillex come out and spin back to back w/12th Planet.
12th Planet + Skrillex; brothers from another mother
From the moment I walked in people were feeding me drinks like it was my birthday even though it wasn’t. But then I made it my bday. Shit was so real. Too real. But it was the motherfukkin Mothership meng what do you expect? People got pregnant. Babies were born. The full circle of life took place in the crowd that night as the Mothership had its way with downtown Miami. Another memorable night.
*LOOOLOLOOZLLZ I just remembered how that night ended. Fuck. What a mess. I amaze myself sometimes. Fuck.
The following day was the pool party at Arkadia at the Fountainebleu Hotel. Sundays all I ever want to do is lay in bed and not do shit but I had responsibilities to fulfill. I was kind of bleh about it only because I didnt know of any of my peoples going and that beach crowd is usually douchey. Also, I went hard in the paint at GC the night before meng and was on 3 hours of sleep. I went anyway and I’ll tell you what though, the girls there were Tv show fine. Holy shit them girls were hot. Something like runway models with a strippers essence. I was smitten.
Nadastrom was warming up the crowd on some chill vibes for a while then hit them w/the one-two party rocking tunes they’re known for. Everybody was up and dancing in no time. 12th Planet went on a little late voluntarily because as he acknowledged “they were killing it”. They were indeed doin the damn thang. I wanted to see how the crowd would react to his set but they went for it, all the way. Ignorant ass bass and grimy dub step and all. I hadn’t ate anything all day so I drank beers cuz there was enough dranks going around to sink a pirate ship. Im serious. By the time Skrillex went on the crowd was heavy so I chilled in the VIP cabana for a while like a boss. Met Niles from Jam Tech Foundation. Cool dude. I think he was right when he said “people love drum and bass and they don’t even know it.” *He made the comment because Skrillex threw down dnb towards the end of his set and everybody went crazy loco.

The Mothership was only in town for 24 hours but by the end of the night I felt like I had been up all week.

And finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…
I came up with this character the first time i did acid. I was still trippin when i had got back home from a pretty wild night that consisted of car hopping, party crashing, girls with big tits wearing red t-shirts (prior to that day I kinda hated the color red, no lie) getting chased by friends that looked like leprechauns and traveling through the matrix via Dunkin Donuts bathroom. I remember trying to convince my brother to stay awake because I couldnt fall asleep. He stayed up for a bit and started showing some pretty crazy drawings he had done himself which is what triggered that inspiration to start drawing from a multiple perspective…Any who. Basically by looking at this character you would assume that “Its you” that is looking at an illustration of an oval head shaped dude with a pointy nose. Really its suppose to be somebody from an outside world looking through a peephole making observations of whats going on in our world today. Which in this case would make us the heartless and unconscious illustrations that keep creating yet effortlessly destroying….Huh??? WHAT?!?! (I’ll upload the original drawing sometime next week, if i remember too)
A camera phone pic i took of Jerry Springer from the Hotel LaChapelle book. This is one of my favorite photography books of all time.I found it at Barnes & Nobles and the book was literally falling apart with missing pages. I asked the manager if he could sell it to me on the reduced tip because of its conditions but he insisted on selling it at full price.I guess he thought I was a sucker. I ended putting a sticker and taking a camera phone pic of all the images that I liked from his book . I retouched the original image a bit to give it a grimier effect. Dave LaChapelle x Rok The Spot collabo coming soon,haha.
I found a sketch I started around 2004 a week before I got my wisdom teeth pulled out.I had this irratating pain in my gums that felt like somebody was literally twisting a rusty screwdriver in my gums (No Method-Man intended).I went to the Doctor ,got some antibiotics in the meanwhile, went home and started this drawing while my Mom was preparing me almost a weeks worth of smoothies.This is just a fraction of the drawing because the entire piece is actually 2 pages.The girls face in the drawing is actually a combination of facial features of these two girls that I know.I happened to find them really annoying at the time and this was my was of saying “SHUTTUP ALREADY”…stay tuned for the finished product
Id like for you to welcome our new friend, ms Ashtro. She’s a really sweet girl and she made history by being the first to wear the Rok The Spot logo girl underwear for girls to wear.
Bar had an oil wrestling match last Tuesday for ladies night where ms Ashtro went to war w/the new Rok The Spot gear.
The only thing under the kiddie pool was a layer of cardboard, directly over the concrete. Mad props to all of the girls cuz I know falling on that shit had to hurt. There were a few dirty slams and I thought someone would end up w/a concussion for sure. So glad I was wrong.
*** The underwear will be available for sale soon ***
