A tag team duo locally sourced from Columbus, Ohio, foi oi oi and What the Bleep are two selectors spicing up the dance. With their roots marinated in the jungle, their flavor includes a spread of multi-cultural bass-heavy genres. They energetically work turntables while rapidly adventuring through a palette of sounds. The menu today includes a cornucopia of rhythm— bass notes smoked slow and low until tender, a side of chopped breakbeats curried with an herb garnish, finished off with rich vocals. The aim of the “foibleep experience” is to serve a full-bodied blend of organic beats and positive vibes by using only the finest ingredients.
Since 2004, foi oi oi and What the Bleep have jointly attended Movement (aka the Detroit Electronic Music Festival), spreading their music as “brothers”. In honor of that tradition, they annually release the groundbreaking mixtape “Feelings for Detroit”, a mix widely-popular for its multiplicity of sounds and technical mixing. The mix has become the duo’s most treasured creation, from the fluid “Top Mix of 2012” (RaggaJungle.biz) Volume 6: Water Sound to the 54-track dancefloor-focused Volume 7: Conquering Dandelion to Volume 8: Under Mi Sensei in a kung-fu style.
Around the world in 44 tracks, Feelings for Detroit Volume 9: Number One encapsulates and unites the many rhythms of our Earth. The story begins with two children hammering away at a xylophone in an open field, creating their orchestral masterpiece. Their percussive patterns evolve, just as the foreseen world, from the natural to the digital and fly you through the Ivory Coast, Australia, Detroit, UK, Argentina, South Africa, Brazil, Ghana, Israel, Jamaica, India, Outer Space, Da Club, Japan, and Cuba. Let foibleep show you the world, from wonder to wonder; over, sideways, and under, on a multi-culti journey.
