Peace, Love & Beats
Hip Hop. Its a way of life. Its my way of life. I founded Mental Genius here in Ibiza as a way and means of bringing old school influences back, way back, ever since I heard 'My Philosophy' by KRS 1 back in 1988 I knew this was something I had to be down with. It's more than the beats, the boom and the bap. It's more than the clothes we wear, it's more than the DJ cutting and scratching, Hip Hop is an intelligent movement.
If you need a reference go watch Beat Street, Scratch or Wild Style, and you will see that hip hop is more than what's currently poppin' in the charts. Ever since Kool DJ Herc put on his first block party. We all knew this was a scene that wasn't about to pass and we at Mental Genius celebrate this movement and blast it on a daily basis. You'll even hear samples and references in our house tracks. I was bitten by the bug back when I was a teenager and will keep passing the message on until I hang up my Air Max.
Dave Lubin - Co Founder, Mental Genius will be on decks at Sole DXB 14th Nov at 3.30 – 5.00pm
