MINDPOOL Catch Up

Hey Hey Y’all!

It’s Jordan here from 88NINE.  Earlier this week I was speaking with our good friend Josh Adams from Mindpool Live about what he has been up to.  On that same day I received an email from Mike Benign about his interview with Mind Pool on Sound Pass.

I’m unsure if it was a cosmic force that brought these two friends into my mind on the same day, but I thought to myself; “hey, I should check out the Mind Pool Channel and see what’s new on Sound Pass.

To my great pleasure, I discovered that there was a lot of new material up on their site.

Here is some of the newest videos that I enjoyed…

1st Annual RIVERWEST FEST

This morning I had the opportunity to have Kelsy Koffman and Sean Hieser in from the Jackpot Gallery in Riverwest on the Morning show to talk about this weekend’s RIVERWEST FEST.
Last year they began a DIY art studio in Riverwest called the Jackpot Gallery. Jackpot soon began to feature shows in the basement, which they dubbed the Eagle’s Nest.
As the nest grew in popularity, the city began to take notice to the crowds, and the Fire Department advised that they bring the venue up to code, or face some serious violations and fines.
In an attempt to become a legit venue, Kelsy and the gang are hosting a weekend long fundraiser called RIVERWEST FEST.

Here is my interview with the gang…

Saturday Session : HORSE FORCE

Every Saturday night here on 88NINE, we invite a MKE DJ to come into the studio and give us 2 hours of his or her choice.  This helps us provide our listeners with new and unique music that you will not find anywhere else, and it help us reach out further to the Milwaukee music scene.

On Saturday August 7th, we invited up and coming Dubstep producer / Deejay HORSE FORCE into the studio.

Milwaukee native Horse Force, is rapidly becoming one of the stars of Milwaukee’s growing dubstep scene. As a DJ, he is giving this city some of the heaviest bass sounds this side of the Mississippi. As a producer, his original work is catching the ears of record labels and fellow DJs across the globe. He had some great things to say about this city’s dubstep scene, and his hopes for the future of DJ culture here in the Brew City.

Take a listen…

Another SUMMERFEST Catch Up!

For the past 9 days we have been down at, SUMMERFEST , the world’s largest music festival. With over 700 bands and 1 stages of music from Noon to Midnight each day of the fest, each day has brought great music here to Milwaukee.

This year’s Summerfest has brought a larger variety of acts to Milwaukee than years past.  The vibe around here, and among much of Milwaukee has been that Summerfest is actually kinda cool this year!

Our good friends at MINDPOOL PRODUCTIONS are recording SO MUCH video coverage of this year’s festival.  They are getting great interviews and live footage of the music on the lake front this year.

Here is a re-cap of what you may have missed this past week….

Our favorite ATL gang THE CONSTELLATIONS were the headliner on our stage Saturday night…

Tuesday night saw Hip Hop legends CYPRESS HILL…

Milwaukee’s own KHB opened up for Cypress Hill and Milwaukee’s newest super-group THE LAB EXPERIMENT opened for Public Enemy on the US CELLULAR Stage…

A number of great Milwaukee acts played the BIG GIG this year.  Jeanna Salzer, Ethan Keller, Willy Porter, Fever Marlene, Jaill, .357 String Band, and the Gufs ( to name just a few )

Even I ( Jordan ) had the chance to play Summerfest 3 times this year.  Tuesday with the Ethan Keller Band and on Monday and  this Friday, I was able to grace the stage with my best buddy KID CUT UP!

( we will be playing after PROPHETIC on the mIller Oasis as support for N.E.R.D. this Friday July 2nd! )
