DJ SEGA – Pinky and the Brain Theme

DJ SEGAPhilly Action News Theme (go here for reference)

Baltimore Club is a love it or hate it type genre. Most people outside of I-695 and your blogger/hipster scenes can’t stand it. Even though I’ve been following the sound for the past few years, I’ve been diving in head first into the scene recently. Going to B-More reminds me of going to those underground house parties in London during the 2-step/pre-grime era, where a DJ would take the hottest US pop track and put their own spin on it. The B-More culture is the cousin to that UK House scene (most early Baltimore releases were on UK labels) and a whole Black subculture exists 45 minutes up the road that people either hate on or don’t know about. The Baltimore sound has spread worldwide, and now there are dudes in other towns putting their own spin on the genre–like Philadelphia’s DJ SEGA.

DJ Sega’s set at Feedback last week was phenomenal. SEGA is a modern day Andy Warhol, taking bits and pieces of our pop culture and slicing them up into new, and sometimes unrecognizable tracks. SEGA’S set included a bevy of songs from my childhood–“Pinky and The Brain,” “Bill Nye The Science Guy,” and “Power Rangers,”–in addition to a Quagmire montage from Family Guy, all set to 130 bpm. It’s almost like SEGA–who was barely legal enough to be in the club–used the turntables as his canvas during his non stop set of almost all original material.

Clearly DC wasn’t ready for the Mad Decent protege, which was a shame. The crowd thinned out considerably during his set, with only the craziest and drunkest people left in the building towards the end. Those who stuck around were treated to one of the future pioneers of the club music genre. Check out DJ SEGA at his MySpace.

    The Pinky and The Brain joint is cool but I really fuck with the Philly Action News joint more. It’s crazy that years prior to hearing this mix, I lived in Philly and always thought the Philly Action News theme was vicious. Then again I do like a lot of late ’60s-’70s era theme songs.
