User Rating:  / 1

MTV's hit dance competition, "America's Best Dance Crew (ABDC)," has become a phenomenon for wannabe dancers in much the same way "American Idol" has lifted the hopes of vocalists around the country.

Capitalizing on ABDC's popularity, local nightclub "Wherehouse" (818 S. Water St.) will host "Milwaukee Meltdown: Dance Crew Competition," a four-week contest showcasing some of the Midwest's best dance teams.

Starting this week, competitions will be held each Thursday night at the club until a winning team is announced at the July 28 finale.

The final round of competition will feature performances by Enigma Dance Kru from Season One of ABDC and Milwaukee native and world traveler, rapper Juiceboxxx.

"Milwaukee Meltdown" begins at 10 p.m. and is hosted by local break dancing specialist "Mijo" of Motion Disorderz Dance Crew - the winner of the 2010 BC1 Red Bull Cypher One Break Dancing Championship. Cover is $7.

  • Music coverage always focuses on the musician. I think that’s a mistake. That only covers half of it. The other half of the relationship is the listener. And I think that half is just as important. Collectors is about the listener. Obsessive listeners. Collectors. Guys in basements with creaking shelves of 45’s from the past half a century. Girls who dig through dusty crates looking for that rare Japanese print of their favorite punk band who broke up in the late 70’s. People who have spent more money on an original Paramount 78 than they are comfortable admitting to someone who isn’t in the know. This is Collectors. Episode 1 is about Ken Freck, owner of Musical Memories, half way underground on the corner of Kilbourn and Marshall. Musical Memories always struck me as the type of place that was started because a collection got too large, a pushy wife forced this guy to open a store against his will, so, begrudgingly, he did, and kept everything piled however he wants, stacked wherever it can, and preserved with a thin coat of dust. It’s a collector’s paradise. The back wall is a 45 shelf. Top to bottom. All the way across. With hand written dividers. Everything from Arthur Alexander to ZZ Top. They have 78s under glass, and Edison cylinders. Yes, Edison cylinders. I knew that for the first episode I had to talk to the owner, Ken Freck. 

  • Big ups to Justin who pointed this one out. It's fantastic! Future Islands - "Seasons (Waiting on You)"     Niia - "Seasons (Waiting on You)"        

  • I haven't the faintest clue what Ata Kak means, but I do know it's the coolest re-issue of the young year. Just re-released, the ultra-rare Obaa Sima by Ghanaian synth-funketeer Ata Kak is ground zero for the entire Awesome Tapes From Africa record label being the culmination of a 13-year story for Awesome Tapes From Africa founder Brian Shimkovitz. Apparently Shimkovitz bought a cassette copy of Obaa Sima from a roadside stall in Cape Coast, Ghana, in 2002. The tape was the subject of the first post on his Awesome Tapes From Africa blog in 2006—the blog that spawned a full record label in 2011. The album was originally released on tape (frickin tape!) and on a limited run of 50 copies. After the initial score, Shimkovitz searched for years to find Ata Kak; eventually "discovering" his real name Yaw Atta-Owusu and that the album had been recorded in Toronto before Atta-Owusu moved back to Ghana in 2006. The album's original masters had deteriorated to the degree that the tape Shimkovitz bought so many years ago was the best remaining copy! Hats off to the perseverence because this synth-funk afrobeat gem is a burner. Best thing I've heard all day.      Story Tags  Awesome Tapes From Africa Ata Kak Obaa Sima
