We've been meaning to make it over to Mai for one of their weekly Rockstar vs. Drum N Bass parties for a while now, but the whole rockstar thing has been a little off-putting. The last thing we want to see is another white belt with a copy of Jock Jams and a underdeveloped sense of irony playing 2 Unlimited and thinking theyre the shit. It's tired, folkslet the real DJs behind the decks and keep the rockstars well enough away, puh-lease. This week there are no such problems, though, with ATL's globe-trotting drum n bass superstar DJ Mayhem sending the rockers home to cry in their PBRshalle-fuckin-lujah! Mayhem's propulsive tech-step is accompanied by the monsters of the local massive: Hunter, Anok, Squake, and our favorite double-X-chromosome duo, RX2.
