Here it is… the 5th and final video from that fateful night at Someday Lounge in June – that was DaveNotti’s The Neck Brace III. You’ve already seen the 4 resident producers of the night – DaiN, Xperiment, FlipFlop & Theory Hazit, now here’s a taste of the performance from the special Featured Producer – the one and only, Exile.
Known in Portland for having already killed, alongside DJ Day, at The Fix the year previous (which he then DJ’ed at the following night), Ex was a natural fit to be the first Featured Producer at a Neck Brace. His live MPC set was also the perfect way to introduce a live performance into the beat showcase’s already established format.
Above, you’ll see Exile performing the track “In Love,” from his 2009 album, Radio, (which was first premiered by yours truly here) live on both his MPC and two turntables. And if you’re in the Portland area, be sure to check out the 5th edition of The Neck Brace this Wednesday 10/20 at Someday Lounge w/ new residents Ohmega Watts, Hi-Res, G_Force, and 5th Sequence – plus featured producer, DJ Babu! We’ll have all the footage for that one for the rest of you soon enough – so stay tuned!
