It's Wes Smith Yo! w/Vitamin B Crew, New York City

Agent 137 is on a spy mission following Wes Smith around the world for the Magic Fugu tour.  Her mission is to gather musical intelligence on the crews that make the record go round, so peep this and more upcoming briefings in this space. Next stop is NYC so today we interviewed John (Tektite) and Tim (the Enchanter) of Vitamin B in the middle of a photo shoot for the album cover of Tim's new single.

10414381_10152665611412191_6055306977020889985_n

Vitamin B... What's in the name? Vitamin B is almost in their 7th year of promoting a monthly 1st Friday breakbeat show in NYC. Made up of purveyors of the broken beat : Tektite (founder), Tim the Enchanter, Illexxandra & Shisaa. There was a need in NYC for breakbeats in an unpretentious space to offer drinks at a decent NY drink price and a ticket price that would allow them to break even (but also throw a great party). They started an underground movement that has grown over the years to bigger (and legal) spaces, but kept the same grit and authenticity of the original movement.

Why the B? There was an element missing in Brooklyn so they felt Vitamin B was the right element to infuse. What the B stands for is a sealed and top secret only for them to know.

What are you bringing to NYC with these shows? Do you see the rerising of breakbeats? Breakbeats are the alternative to the 4X4 - they are bringing it all to the table but breaks spans such wide variety of different subgenres though juke, bounce, 2step, jersey club, drum&bass, etc and they always give the show a different feel from the 4X4 NY scene. Some of the newer up and coming producers like Mafia Kiss, Tony Quattro and Wuki don't necessarily identify as breakbeat artists so the newer generation is getting turned on to it more and more. The lines get more blurred and everyone is there for good music.

What's up next after this week's show for Vitamin B? DJ ICEY! July 10th - One of Tim the Enchanter's Miami Music Conference favorite moments was getting down to Icey at Future Sound of Breaks ( I actually ran into him during Icey and the smile was grand). He said listening to Icey come out with fresh rerubs and watching the whole room get down was refreshing and one of his favorite WMC moments.

The photoshoot - what's it about? Tim is coming out with a new single "BAD BITCH "on Martin Flex's label "Let's Go" soon, very very soon (It's the hotness).

Let's talk about Friday - ARE YOU EXCITED?

Yes! The Freestylers! Wes Smith! From buying Freestylers records back in the early 90's to where they are now, John is truly so damn excited to see em for the first time ever. They talked about Wes Smith and how he is an absolute pioneer of the era and they can't WAIT for him to bring the funk.

Can I get an Amen? The Amen Tee! A friend of theirs developed the design and actually did a "shirt off your back" silk screening at a show, but now you can get them online. Screw Capitalism! Unless you are buying this shirt. www.teespring.com/vitamin-b-presents-the-amen-b ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for your time guys, I just bought my ticket to get up from 137 headquarters DC to NYC for the weekend. This will be my 4th VitaminB show (second Wes Smith VB show) and I wouldn't miss this one for the world.

Catch the Vitamin B crew this Friday with The Freestylers and Wes Smith and special guest DJ Quesquecest?
