Oakland DJ Serves Up Sizzling Tribute to Bacon

Posted By on Mon, May 3, 2010 at 2:04 PM

At long last, a DJ mix that has needed to happen for a long time has finally been served up properly. As spotted on the Soul Cocina blog, DJ Enki of the nimble Oakland Faders crew has just released the piping hot "Bacon the Funk," which he's described as "a tribute to pork, ham, and the king of foods, bacon."

The true test of merit for a themed mix is whether it holds up without the novelty. And with its expert scratching and cutting and a sonically diverse playlist, this passes with flying colors. It's an impressive and laugh-inducing romp through a huge spectrum of artists expressing a line or three on swine, including stand-up comedians, rappers, bluesmen, and rock heroes. Sick of the bacon meme or not, it's still a worthy listen.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
