Lower Parts X Dj Assault, Detroit In Effect
When?Start time: Saturday 00:00 (19 May)
End time: Sunday 08:00 (20 May)
Lower Parts presenting first time in Athens two of the most influential and important producers of the Electro Bass and Detroit's Booty Music scene Dj Assault & D.J. Maaco aka Detroit In Effect
••DJ Assault (Jefferson Ave.)
DJ Assault (aka Craig Diamonds) is a Detroit legend.
Having grown up in Detroit during the birth of techno, Assault fused the worlds of hip-hop and electronic music to create a style he has referred to as “accelerated funk.” After more than two decades of music-making, DJ Assault is an international brand. His label, Jefferson Ave. Records, continues to release his music here in Detroit.
In addition to his energetic live performances, Assault’s music has been widely successful with film and TV placements, including programs such as MTV’s Road Rules, Comedy Central’s Chappelle Show, DreamWorks Pictures’ I Love You Man, Coca Cola’s DJ Tour, Géla Babluani’s Oscar-nominated picture 13 and numerous others.
His track “Ass -N- Titties” (Released in on his self run Jefferson Ave label ) featured in a scene in 22 Jump Street an American comedy film directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. The film was released on June 13, 2014, by Columbia Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, received generally positive reviews, and earned over $308 million at the box office.
••D.j. Maaco aka Detroit In Effect (M.A.P. Records)
From Drexciya to Underground Resistance, Detroit has a history of elusive dance acts, and Detroit in Effect (D.I.E.) is right up there. Originally a duo made up of Tameko J. Williams (aka DJ Maaco) and Odell Perry (aka P-Dog), the group steadily released 12″ singles throughout the late 90s and early 00s, usually on their own M.A.P. (Maaco & P-Dog, in case you were wondering) label but occasionally on Europe’s Clone. They also recorded as Cybonix. And they didn’t leave many clues.
D.I.E. have rarely granted interviews, and until recently the only mixes available were self-released physical mixtapes (Discogs lists two: Live Somewhere in Detroit and Nowhere in Detroit). Despite this, and despite them not receiving the same worldwide recognition as some of their peers, D.I.E. are well-respected amongst dance aficionados, thanks in no small part to ‘R U Married’, hands down one of the best songs ever made.
