Summer brings nightlife options

Bundown offers varied menu for the season.

For the summer of 2011, the boys have got a number of weekly offerings as well as big events to ensure that your summer is filled to the brim with fuelGOODmusic!

First off, there are four weekly residencies you definitely want to reach:
Charles’ Gallery marks the return of the hip hop night we did at The Lo Pub and continues in the same vein as we celebrate hip hop culture, its various elements and special guest DJs and MCs dropping the finest rap joints this side of NYC. CG takes place every Tuesday at Bar Italia, 737 Corydon.

G.O.O.D. Thursdays was inspired by a certain MC/producer’s weekly download offerings and is a multi-genre night which allows us to take you all over the urban music spectrum: classic and contemporary house, soul, funk, disco and rap to jumpstart your weekends off right at Bar Italia.

Stylistic Fridays is all about unwinding from a week’s work inside one of the Exchange’s newest nightspot offerings, Boa Lounge, 177 Lombard, with music selections that take you anywhere from the latest fist-pumping house remixes to timeless dancefloor joints in a swanky space.

Calculated Soul has found a new home inside The Loft Gastropub, 774 Corydon, the latest entry into the Corydon strip’s nightlife, and continues to deliver that soul and funk vibe – with generous servings of disco and house – for a mature clientele. If you were a regular at Lobby On York then this definitely is the night for you every Saturday.

We’re also going to be a part of two big fetes on Saturday, June 25:

Summer Whiteout Patio Party is going down at Moxie’s Classic Grill at the MTS Centre, 300 Portage. To get the mood started for the upcoming NHL and summer seasons, we’re paying homage to the Winnipeg-bred “whiteout” and going outdoors! There will be prizes for the top 2 sexiest “Whiteoutfits” courtesy of Luxe + Charm and Unfold Apparel! The patio will be open from 4:00pm-way past dark.

BOOYA! marks our first ever collaboration with Refresh Concepts: an all-90s theme party consisting of all your favourite rap, R&B and dancehall joints from labels like Uptown, Bad Boy, LaFace, Rowdy, Greensleeves, VP and more! BOOYA! will make over Mystique Nightclub, 441 Main St, into Cloud 9 for one night only!

Set the alerts on your iPhones and Blackberrys, folks!

See ya on the dancefloor,
BSS

Lucious makes official return

Bundown co-founder Lucious Frazer returns with first live billing in two years.

Lucious will be joining Quadratik for the live reincarnation of Q’s Calculated Soul mix series this Saturday at Lobby on York. It’s good to see him back on the hustle and what better way to make his live debut than Calculated Soul Live!

Air attack expected

Winnipeg bracing for planned “shock and awe” attack.

flashback circa summer, 1997
mood ruff is shooting the video for their debut single, No Hooks. Ofield, Midnight Breakers and Fliproc also make their music video debut, which included scenes shot in the parking lot of what is now known as The Academy.

This team of hip hop representatives – who are later joined by another Winnipeg original, DJ D-LO – would grow to become flag-bearers of Winnipeg hip hop culture: Bundown Sound System and Night Life Types, who in their combined history can be credited for laying down the foundation of the city’s hip hop scene.

fast forward, summer, 2010
For the first time ever, Bundown Sound System and Night Life Types collaborate to bring to you…
