Siyoung, Rx, Doctor Jeep, Elijah, Spooky, and Shiftee aligned forces for the Hot Mom USA Dream Team Tour in the beginning of this month. I went to their first show in Philadelphia, where the Seclusiasis squad joined for a night of low-end bliss. I’ve been talking to and about Spooky for years and got to meet the don of grime in person. Every set was insane.

Elijah and Shiftee went B2B in Boston, and we’re glad that someone thought enough to record this, as it’s conceptually insane. Imagine two CDJs, two Technics 1210s, a Pioneer DJM800 mixer, a Native Instruments Machine, and a Native Instruments Z2 mixer all used for nearly an hour of futuristic bass music. The only thing they’re missing is a tracklist.

This squad performed in five cities in five different states five days in a row. The UK Meets USA (instead of “UK vs. USA”) concept was pulled off flawlessly, bringing two label heads together for a series of marvelous sets. I’ve seen Elijah before but always feel blessed when someone takes the initiative to bring our British counterparts here to represent their culture. It warms my heart to see music bring people together like this.
