ibctime.com - Spank Rock feat. Santigold - Car Song
It's easy to imagine Philly-based party collective Spank Rock swarming the Fabric DJ booth, getting places they didn't really belong until they got there-- that's pretty much their style. Call it a sneak attack, especially since Spank Rock himself, the Baltimore-born MC who provides the public face of the collective, doesn't DJ. Instead, on the decks and below the radar are the group's two DJs, Ronnie Darko and Chris Rockswell, in charge and running things. They're an unlikely choice for Fabric, who historically skew towards dance circles and Europeans. But there is a precedent, another Philly guy who favors mixtapes over 12" and rap over microhouse: Diplo's FabricLive 24 mix is duly acknowledged by Spank Rock's finisher, the soul semi-classic "Love to the World" by L. These days Diplo produces grist for this mill: baile funk, M. Philadelphia is among other things a small town.
