Hey all,

Whatever is left of my reputation is going down the pan with this invite. But who cares, and what a night!!!!!

We are 4 definites before the invite has even gone out, so for all those Fresh Prince fans and lovers of 80's Hip-Hop (I know you are out there) come and join us for what is guaranteed to be a superb night of going back to the old-skool. Skaters, BBoys, BGirls, Spandex wearers, cap back-to-front havers, BMX riders, ET watchers, my little pony lovers, Carebear hugers, HE-Man watchers, transformer transformerers, pez eaters.... you know you wonna.

I have seen him dj-ing twice before and he never fails to get the whole club involved. I guarantee noone will be sitting down..... (well we won't be).

De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Blacksheep, Jungle Brothers, Africa Bambaataa, Biz Markie, NWA, Slick Rick, Ultramagnetics, Fresh Prince, EPMD, Run DMC, superbly mixed with Nirvana, The Jackson 5, Cypress Hill and House of Pain....he plays all the classics and loads of the more recent-decent stuff.... classic Biggie, classic Wu-Tang, classic Snoop... well the rest is crap anyway.

So for a chance to go back to the daisy age, get your tickets from www.STARTICKET.ch and I'll see you there!!!!

Alternatively, tickets are available for cash over the counter at the ticket office in Jelmoli.

Do you reckon you can get tickets on the night? It's gonna be a pain in the arse to transfer cash into my UK account so's I can buy the tickets online...

Terry mate, I've just bought a stack, but just get some of the footie boys to pay, and then they can scan the ticket and send it to you via email. Pay em back on the night.

Re: OLD SKOOL CLUB NIGHT - DJ Jazzy Jeff @ X-tra

What about some later stuff like Onyx - Slam... another great party tune that he likes to drop.

I went a bit funny last time, cos he played two tunes of my all time favourite hip hop album. "A Wolf In Sheeps Clothing by BLACK SHEEP".

Never heard them in a club before and I went mental.

I love the lyrics to "For Doz That Slept".

Re: OLD SKOOL CLUB NIGHT - DJ Jazzy Jeff @ X-tra

Ok last lyrics post about accidentally picking up someone (ugly) in a dimly lit club.


Blacksheep - Strobelite Honey

I skipped the line, I paid my dime

I hung my coat, and now it's time
To move to the forefront take my rounds
Say peace and give a pound have a drink, get down

I'm on the floor, besides the door
The sound is rich, and I ain't poor
I'm looking for Susie or Wendy or Judy
But look at her, look at her, look at her.. "Who me?"

Yes, you sweetie, although it's hard to see thee
I see your silhouette and what I see has got me needy
I need you for a second of your time
But then I reckon that a second is too short let me try
"You're slammin!"

But anyway, I'd like to say
I'm Dres of the Black Sheep givin you play
Step out in the light, come show off yourself
Yo, I'm sorry, I thought you were someone else.

I gotta go, I gotta go, I gotta go "Don't go"
I gotta go, I gotta go, I gotta go "Don't go"
I gotta go, I gotta go, I gotta go "Don't go"
See Something ain't right "Why?" Its the strobelite.

Re: OLD SKOOL CLUB NIGHT - DJ Jazzy Jeff @ X-tra

This? or That? This? or That?



With all this lyrics talk let's not forget Finesse:

"Finesse (Yeah yeah) my man, my cousin
I know you're going to kick some sh*t"

[Lord Finesse]
You thought I wasn't?
When it comes to being funky I'll show you who the boss is
(Yo money rock that shit!)
Hold your mothering horses
Wait up, hold up, I sport the low cut
If rap was a game I'd leave opponents on a doughnut
Funky warlord, top on the scoreboard
Dissing Finesse, that shit is uncalled for
Brothers front and fret how they roll correct
Grab the mic and think they pose a threat
Talking about all the brothers they coulda killed
I don't care if you're a New Jack or you're older than Sugar
Hill
Cause I slay with no delay
I stomp you out, so be about your way
You can't hang, you're still in the slow poke zone
You're helpless like a patient in an old folks home
So keep up with my further adventures
I'll have it going on til I'm old with dentures
I rock parties and tear the roof off of houses
Think I can't? Put your money where your mouth is
Give me a mic, let me clear my throat
Guaranteed I'll send you home broke
Fast and quick cause I'm quick with the gift
Give me my money I don't wanna hear shit
And those who can't rap, I don't wanna hear jack
I dust opponents in two minutes flat
When it's showtime, MC's they don't wanna fight
They start bitching saying
(Why he have to come at night?)
It's the Funky Man the brother with the new swing
Lord Finesse just showing you how I do things.....

Lots of talk, but no "yes" answers.

Come on people, get those tickets bought.

Kids kids kids.... we are in Switzerland now. You need to get yourself a credit card.

Alternatively you can head to Jelmoli on the 3rd floor by the canteen. You can buy your tickets over the counter there.

Do it, do it, do it !!!!!!

Re: OLD SKOOL CLUB NIGHT - DJ Jazzy Jeff @ X-tra

So looking forward to this. Was quite a clubber a few years ago and with the help of about 6 years at Creamfields, I think I've seen pretty much every big-name dj at some time or another. Without any doubt at all, Jazzy Jeff is the best I have ever seen. Only DJ Shadow is close to him in terms of technical ability but nobody can touch him for pure funkiness and dancibility (yes, that is a word).

Re: OLD SKOOL CLUB NIGHT - DJ Jazzy Jeff @ X-tra

Hi. Stupid Question. I have a crew of people that wanna go but we're all going to see The Departed first. We won't be able to get there until midnight. Are the CHF 25 tickets for the whole evening til x-tra closes or will we be able to get when we arrive for the regular club price? I just don't wanna spend the CHF 25 if 1) it's gonna be over or 2) we can get in later for less.

Any help?

My ticket doesn't specify a time that it's valid till, just the date and that the doors open at 9.00pm
I can't imagine Jeff will be on till later in the night so you should be fine. And even if you only caught 5 min of him playing, it would still be worth it.
see you there

In that case I would say chance your arm, and just rock up at 12 ready to pay at the door. If DJJJ has finished you might get in for less, but I recon it will only have just got going by then.

Alternatively, just fork out 25CHF... its not the earth and at least there is no chance of getting turned away at the door. Your call.

I am liking the sound of the crew. Have the crew got a name? If not.. name it!!!!

Re: OLD SKOOL CLUB NIGHT - DJ Jazzy Jeff @ X-tra

Thanks, that's kinda what I figured. I just didn't wanna pony up the CHF 25 and then end up getting turned away cause it was over.

Hmmm. . . name for the crew. . . . I think I've already used up all my creative juices today at work cause I am stumped for something catchy/creative.

How's about "The Double Fisted Bandits"

(and that refers to drinks in both hands, perverts.)

Oh my god!! Not the DFB....

Everyone knows the RPL have had a long runing fude with the DFB... ever since they stole their hammer pants at 1983 breaker championships.

It looks like there's gonna have to be a serious dance off between the Rotten Peg Legs and the Double Fisted Bandits.

R.P.L. till I die !!!
