  • Hollertronix ... Never Scared CD (2003)

    Money Studies Records

Ranked #168 in the Soul Strut 200

The early 2000s were an exciting time here on Soul Strut.  With no real social media to speak of, DJs flocked to this site's message board to plug their club nights and post set lists.  One night that really stood out was the Hollertronix parties in Philly created by Soul Strut message board pioneer Diplo and his partner Low B (with shout outs to other strutters like Lilly White and Cosmo Baker).  Holletronix was an oddball mashup up of 80s electro, 90s miami bass, modern southern hip hop, classic rock, italo disco, Baltimore house, you name it.  It was when mash ups were an exciting new novelty and it took some significant DJ skill to tweak the vinyl live.  This was pre-Serato, mind you. The night was such a hit that it sparked its own legendary short lived message board and this mix CD released on the upstart Turntable Lab label Money Studies.  It embodies Diplo's humble beginnings before he turned into a world famous celebutaire DJ and renown EDM music producer. Gully.
