Relax your mind, let your conscience be free…
We’re drawing ever so close to end of our DJ Skate Nights season. This week, we’re doing something special and enlisting Never Forgive Action (NFA) to rock the Natrel Rink — and trust us, they take the term “hip hop you don’t stop” very seriously. NFA, the good folks behind Hip Hop Karaoke (HHK), is an organization that’s been involved in a variety of shows in Toronto including: DJ Cash Money, Prince Paul, Jazzy Jay, DJ Evil Dee (Black Moon), Killa-Jewel, P-Love, Skratch Bastid and many more. DJ Numeric and DJ Dalia will be holding it down as you and your crew skate the scenic Natrel Rink to the sounds of hip hop’s golden era.
DJ Numeric — who was the Art Director and hip hop journalist for Exclaim! magazine for seven years — is the creator of Never Forgive Action, which he imagined/implemented in the summer of 2004. It’s since grown from a monthly dance party to a movement with the introduction of the official Toronto chapter of HHK in 2007. DJ Dalia, an original member of the Chicks Dig It all-female DJ collective, was the co-founder and host of CHRY’s Best Kept Secret, one of the original radio programs to showcase women mixing hip hop and breaks. Today, she is the official DJ for Shebang! and hosts and DJs at three regular parties in Toronto, including NFA. The duo will be mixing/blending hip hop, R&B, soul, funk and more.
So in the immortal words of the great Eric Sermon, “you gots to chill” and check out the second last DJ Skate Night of the season. Next week we have our Season Finale with DJ P Plus from FLOW 93-5 FM.
