The Bump and Hustle has been one of Lawrence’s finest parties since its inception almost 3 years ago. When we created this gig back in May 2010 we had little idea exactly what we were getting into, all we knew was that snobby soul parties were getting stale and that the EDM/Macbook aesthetic wasn’t for us either. Over time this night became OUR thing and thrived in bridging the gap between dubstep’s intensity and the soul scene’s taste. We worked on our turntable chops, we played rare records and common records, and, above all else, we danced our blues away. Back then it was just a feeling but now it’s something way more palatable: join us this weekend as we get-down for the last time with Cyrus D on the 1s & 2s, join us this weekend as we bid winter adieu and embrace the good times to come this spring.
The Bump & Hustle serves to showcase the finest sounds of the 1970s and early 1980s. Polished 70s soul sides and smooth disco anthems of yore made for the first brand of club music as we now know it, we celebrate the old that made the new possible: classy steppers, lavish grooves, rich production, and heartfelt vocals are what we’re all about. We’ll even mix in some contemporary records just to keep things relevant so stop on by cause we’re all about having a good time.
