Southern Hospitality

About

  • Southern Hospitality was formed four years ago by DJs Rob Breezy and Superix. With both having spent their lives immersed in music and DJ culture, Rob and Superix, immediately recognised each other as kindred spirits and the partnership was formed. Since then, Southern Hospitality has gone from strength to strength, spreading the word of good music at clubs, festivals and major events throughout London, the U.K. and Europe. Drawing on their wealth of DJ experience, Southern Hospitality are well known for being able to rock ANY crowd put in front of them, with all their residencies garnering a strong following. Southern Hospitality founded the now infamous Hip Hop Karaoke London, the first of its kind in the U.K. and an event that has been a road-block every single month at The Social, in central London. As well as being featured on Radio 1, Channel 4 and in The Times, The Guardian, Metro and many others, Hip Hop Karaoke London was most recently seen on prime-time BBC as a main part of their Saturday night Glastonbury coverage. This was the second year Hip Hop Karaoke London and Southern Hospitality have taken Glastonbury by storm, and in 2008 have been booked for all the major festivals including Bestival, Camp Bestival and The Gatecrasher Summer Soundsystem. Other major events over the past three years have included the launch of Playstation 3 and work with MTV Base. Southern Hospitality the club night has taken up various residencies around London, including Dex and Harlem in Brixton, The Social in Central London and The Electricity Showrooms in Shoreditch (where it ran weekly for 2 years under the guise of ‘Crunk’). The emphasis is always on the party and the promotion of new and classic music. As a result, Rob and Superix have also been fortunate enough to support many great acts including; De La Soul, DJ Shadow, Mark Ronson, Norman Jay, Dangermouse, Afrika Bambaata and Roni Size to only name a few. Rob also ran the classic London weekly Spread Love with DJ Yoda for five years, whilst Superix was resident DJ at one of Sheffield’s biggest club nights NY Sushi. Their collective experience led them to being invited to run the DJ workshops at both Prince’s Trust Urban Music Festivals in 2004 and 2005 and continued giving back to communities with DJ tutorial work as part of Lambeth Crime Prevention. Rob also went out on the road for 25 date University tours in both 2006 and 2007 as part of the Malibu sponsored Soundclash, and can be found monthly behind the decks and on the mic for Baby Loves Disco – the new afternoon party phenomenon for families, which has been covered by BBC Breakfast News, London Tonight and The Times to name a few. Southern Hospitality’s mix-CDs have always received rave reviews whether it’s their specialist mixes like ‘The Hyphy Life’ or ‘Rappers Have Feelings Too’ or their bi-annual round-up ‘Coast To Coast’ series or their latest summer smash ‘BBQ Bangers’. Superix meanwhile has just released his long anticipated official mix of every track from the Ultimate Breaks and Beats series, the double CD ‘Ultimate Ultimate Ultimate’, which has now gained worldwide distribution and is set to become the definitive CD of its genre. Whilst not DJing or running Hip-Hop Karaoke London, Rob works as a freelance journalist and is Contributing Editor for Hip-Hop Connection magazine, the longest running publication of it’s kind in the world. Superix meanwhile is a music producer /designer/art director, also based in London. Our newest affiliate, Davey Boy Smith (aka David Sadeghi) has been contributing to Hip-Hop Connection magazine for several years, specialising in southern and west-coast rap reviews, interviews and features. The Memphis underground enthusiast and Three 6 Mafia obsessive joined the Southern Hospitality team in 2008 and has been helping to push the movement ever since.
