Fatboy Slim and Five More 4th of July DJ Events in Metro Phoenix
Long before the "Harlem Shake," there was "The Rockafeller Skank." Doesn't ring a bell, huh? It should considering the 1998 plunderphonics-heavy groove was one of the more epic big beat hits from the enormous arsenal of British-born musician Norman Cook. Still clueless, bro? Perhaps you know the Englishman by his more famous handle, Fatboy Slim, or maybe you caught his shizzle in heavy rotation on MTV back in the day.
Courtesy of SLE Fatboy Slim is scheduled to appear on Thursday at Maya Day and Nightclub in Scottsdale.
And, ironically enough (as we noted earlier this week) the esteemed Englishman and superstar DJ/producer will stage a spin gig in Scottsdale on the most quintessentially American of holidays, signifying our countries separation from his homeland. It's one of several noteworthy EDM or DJ-oriented events transpiring in metro Phoenix during the Fourth of July. Here are five more worth checking out:
Bottle Rock-It at Club Silver
Every weekend, the respective owners of Downtown Phoenix's various nightspots along Washington Street compete for the attentions (and disposable incomces) of clubgoers. They're apparently quite neighborly the rest of the week, however, as illustrated by tonight's Bottle Rock-It party. To wit: House music czars Pete "SuperMix" Salaz and Sean "Senbad" Bager, co-owners of both Bar Smith and The Monarch, will spend this evening a few doors down at Club Silver.
The pair will perform in a special set against the equally renowned duo of Thomas Turner and Timothy Heit that will feature a "full spectrum of house music" during the DJs-on-DJs fracas. The beat battle starts at 9 p.m. Admission is free if you RSVP online.
