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…

From the DJ that brought you mixtapes such as Viva La Hova (Coldplay+Jay-Z), comes Adele 1988 presented by Mick Boogie.  The mixtape will be available for a free download on Decemeber 17th.

Adele’s album 19 set trends and created influence in the pop, rock and international worlds. But what would happen if the vocals and instruments of 19 were combined with the hip-hop sensibilities of the late 1980s, considered by many hip-hop’s golden age?

The result is the new release from Mick Boogie… Adele: 1988.

More than a mashup, it’s a complete reinterpretation of Adele’s album as only Mick Boogie and friends can do.
