Once upon a time, we decided to have a party with bands/DJs we like. One of them happened to fall upon the celebration of the opening of this very blog and featured one of our favourite duos, Bag Raiders (and Miami Horror, although he totes got barrado no baile and stayed at the airport). That night we were party to one of the best DJ sets of our young lives.
Not only technical perfect, Bag Raiders' set has something that's even more difficult to find these days: personality. So, listening to these guys, you'll hear your Hype Machine hits, but you'll also get tunes that you’ve never heard before that will compell you to stick around to hear what else they'll pull out of The Bag.
It's been a while since then, but the boys have finally released their debut single and are now doing a live tour (which includes them coming back to Brazil as well!), and they've managed to keep themselves in my list of favorite DJs. Their disco mix for Australia's Triple J illustrates my point brilliantly. So no more talking, it’s time for some dancing!
