DISTRICT 808 VOL. 1
MIXED BY DJ WRECK
Affiliations : Basshead Music (Miami), Transient Force (Miami), Fuel Records (U.K.)
DJ Wreck (Salim Rafiq) has assaulted the world’s most veteran B-Boys with his signature style of body rockin’ Electro-Funk and Swamp Bass. His dance-floor sensibility is uncanny and his understanding of both groove and time will take any dancer into a deep journey through the evolution of Bass music. His aggressive yet smooth blending habits are what set him apart from the rest.
In support of "Sound Off II", a mix CD he compiled and mashed-up for Fuel Records (UK), Salim has toured the UK and North America alongside fellow electro-breaks assassins Tipper, Cold Fusion Mafia, Si Begg and Andrea Parker. Breakin’ Point, XLR8R, M8, DMC and DJ Magazine took notice, hailing Rafiq, “A true Miami Bass DJ that will take any dancer on a deep, dark journey into electro-booty breaks territory.”
With the advent of a new era on the horizon, Salim has been working relentlessly in the studio. He has joined forces with UK drum and bass producer A-Sides to create the group LIVE 2 KILL. Their mission: To push boundaries on the dance floor by creating their own unique domain, where BASS is the key to unlock yourself from within. The duo has completed their 1st EP and has plans to finish their debut album this summer. Tremors have already been reported by the likes of Otto Von Schirach, Juan Basshead, Paul Blackford and Hydraulix. The LIVE 2 KILL EP was also featured on the "Jam on the Groove" radio show hosted by legendary Cozmo D of Newcleus.
