On this day in music history: August 11, 1973 - Eighteen year old Jamaican born DJ Kool Herc (aka Clive Campbell) throws a block party in the first floor rec room of his apartment building at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx in New York City. Advertised as a “Back To School Jam”, flyers handwritten on 3x5 index cards are distributed widely throughout the neighborhood. The event is filled to capacity, attracting 300 people. Herc sets up his powerful sound system in the room, spinning a mixture of R&B, Funk, Latin and Rock records. Using duplicate copies of the same record on two turntables, Herc isolates and extends the breakdown of these songs to the delight of the crowd. The event is a huge success and leads to the DJ spinning at even larger events on the streets and in clubs in and around the Bronx. However, the first party is regarded as a watershed event in history as the birth of the Hip Hop Movement. Happy 43rd Birthday, Hip Hop!!!

just for heads up..

So I saw this post and a companion post about comparison of Victor and John Cameron Mitchell by @victuri-onice

 and then looking back at spoon .2Di. He is the reference of victor. Kubo sensei said it herself.

 I haven’t done much research and I actually haven’t seen Hedwig and the angry inch. This is a floppy research tbh (based on my gut feelings only)

So I’m talking as someone who never knew these people

Here are some parallels I figured out over internet :

1. He is a co-founder and DJ of the long-running New York City monthly party “Mattachine”  - Wikipedia

2.  His collab partner, musician-componist Stephen Trask

nah this is first picture I found on google images I swear

okay, this is where I felt like this thoughts of mine is slipping. I have not found any source stating who his lover is. But Mitchell did have an ex boyfriend who he claimed to be his half, jack steeb. This is why I made this post at first place,  bcs I can’t find anything precise about his relationship. Scold me later

Now no 3 and the rest willl follow up the point no 2, just to justify my thoughts

not that I ship them but

3. Their age difference

Coincidence?

4. Their ages when they first meet on 1990

I don’t know haha

Gimme your thoughts. I’m sloppy when it comes to research thus bad marks so..

Edit : I forgot who is being interviewed tbh perhaps not kubo sensei

Swizz Beatz, photographed playing Jay Z some of his new beats when they were backstage at U2′s sixth “iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour” show at the Madison Square Garden in New York City on July 27, 2015.

In an interview with DJ Vlad in 2014 Beatz said this about his relationship with Hov: “I speak to Jay every day, almost … ‘cause it’s not about music with us no more. I might speak to Jay about not music every time. Most of the people I speak to in the industry it’s not about music. We have life conversations.”
