Hype Blast! New Sensation

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

Totally Mag! is proud to introduce you to the magic that is Hype Blast Crew! They are totally on fire right now! I had the honor of meeting and becoming friends with DJPK (DJ Peter Kirkpatrick) while attending Los Angeles City College. He is the go-to guy  in the electronic music area of Los Angeles City College’s music department.

He has now crossed over to the ever progressive side of  la underground performance. DJPK joined the group Hype Blast! in 2007 after meeting with a dark and mysterious MC Menga. Now Hype Blast consists of many talented artists from all around Los Angeles. They are more of a production force that continues to create amazing music every waking second. They are like the post millenium CNC Music Factory only with a more trance/eurobeat influence. From their press release:

Once upon a time, in the dusty streets of East Hollywood, California, Menga, visionary and leader of Hype Blast Crew, approached DJPK about creating “Music of the Future.”  Since then, over the course of two years, a full cast of musicians, rappers and crazy characters from Hype Blast including Son, Virus, Ajax, Android, Julie, Geek, and Knight and a few guest artsts including Mr. Showtime, Amanda Martindale, and Rose II, collaborated on the self-titled EPK “Hype Blast” which was spearheaded by the visionary MC Menga and produced by DJPK and Jack of Pete O’Carroll Records.

Hype Blast Crew is definitely a force to be reckoned with their beats are commanding hard-hitting and their melodies will get embedded into the deepest and darkest corners of your brain. The vocal styles are beautiful and in your face I said Oops! upside yo head!

What’s Hype Blast mean anyway? Well…

“Hype is one part of the crew which means whatever is going on right now is the Hype. So today you are the Hype. Blast is the other half of the crew. Blast means when you are on the spot light you are on Blast.” -Hype Blast

Hype Blast will be playing our very own favorite venue THE SMELL on July 30th in the beautiful and lush Downtown Los Angeles, CA and we couldn’t be more stoked! Since HYPE BLAST! is such an army of music militants only some of them can join us for the live show on the 30th this includes my man DJPK who will be rippin up some keys and entrancing you with his entrancing beats and melodies.
