In this installment of Hometown Fire, I wanted to give a shout out to one of Brooklyn’s finest, tektite. This guy is one of the hardest working heads in the breaks business and is responsible for the longest running monthly breaks event in NYC. Vitamin B is a fantastic party that has been growing in size for years. He, Tim the Enchanter & Barney Iller bring in some of the quality talent from all around, with Tektite also spinning in parties all over the city. Check out this mix from over the summer that he did. There’s a smooth competency to match his ridiculously potent beats, transitions and fantastic track selection.
And, not only does he DJ and throw events, but his talent as a producer is slowly becoming undeniable. He is super humble, but some of his cuts and re-works on the fly have been pretty fantastic. He’s got one original tune up on soundcloud, and you should put it into your face right freaking now.
If you’re around on Friday, make sure to hit up SRB and show he & the rest of the beat bandits of Vitamin B some love. They deserve it, and it is the holiday season. So give, by shaking your ass on the dance floor like the sun isn’t coming back.
