The entire line up from the 20th (and 27th) are being pushed back one week (or so I've been told). J-Red's now playing on the 27th.

Never seen Simply Jeff. I hear he's the shiznit though.

I'm out of the loop with respect to Simply Jeff so I have to ask.....what type of breaks

When I heard him play in Miami last year he played mostly funky with a heavy electro influence (proper electro, not the Florida fluff). When he played here last summer he played a very funky set with a touch of house and nu school. The last thing he put out on his label Phonomental called "What Direction" had the craziest bassline but it wasn't dark and it's very dancefloor friendly, it's what I would call "funky nuschool".

Jeff is a super versatile DJ because he has been at it for ever (I've got classic old break records that he co-produced with DJ Dan back in 1995). For the kind of breaks you like Shawna I really don't think he will dissapoint.

This is going to be a crazy week. Somehow my reading week coincided with a sweet week to party. It's been pretty dry out in ottawa as of late. I know somebody brought simply jeff to toronto in the summer and the place was empty. Toroto has to support, this is not to be missed. i can't wait.

YAY!! i can't wait for this!! Simply Jeff is the man! The first time i heard him was at fever- a while back- then in the summer at system where there were like 20 ppl.!!- (what the hell???) bottom line is- this man gets me dancing and he is kick ass! Limelight better be busy or everyone is fukked.

Hey Jen that was a different company in the summer who did that event. We are talking about OUTOFHAND and we are talking about a one year anniversary. I think those guys did it on a tuesday. Anyway I think that Simply Jeff with our residents we are sure to pack the place, and it's my reading week as well.
LETS GO TEAM,

yea, i know it was a different company that did it, but still, it's simply jeff. Any place this guy is spinning at, should NOT be dead. However, I couldn't think of anyone who would be better to bring him in.

That's because the other promoters put out their flyer for Simply Jeff barely a week before hand, none of the flyers made it to the stores and there was no internet promotion whatsoever. I remember looking around and noticing that other then yourself Jen, half of the other 20 people in attendance where DJ's (Myself,Wes, Switch, Monkey ect......) barely any party people there because no one knew about it.

Even though I've seen Jeff play more times than I can count..I always get excited when he plays. I probably own more mixtapes from that man than any other DJ. Funk N Trip ('94)is one of my favourite tapes ever. Also Funk N Trip 3 has one of the best trip hop sets I've heard. (the other side is Omar Santana- so only the one side gets played
)

I think an appearance at Limelight may be in order.

It will be worth your while, that's for sure.
I can't wait for Jeff to see the crowd that we bring in for him. I want him to see Toronto at it's best and I think that the third floor of limelight rammed will be a great way to do this.

Dude, I know its a tall order but if you put the decks on the floor so people can see his hands at work, it'll totally be worth it. When I saw him at Fever, I couldn't believe the shit he was doing. I'm not a big fan of cut mixing but this guy can cut like nobody's business and do it so you can't even tell he's cutting. Put him on the floor!

I agree... I want to see him on the floor too... and it would be cool to have him downstairs. It's a bigger room, ain't it? Well, at least it seems bigger.
