The DJs behind high-energy dance nights Get Cryphy (this year's winners of City Pages' Best Dance Night) are pulling out all the stops for their 5th Anniversary celebration. The crew, comprised of distinguished local DJ's Plain Ole Bill, Jimmy2Times, Last Word, and Fundo, have a sure-to-be-hype show scheduled at First Avenue's Mainroom on Friday, February 8, which promises not only a night filled with club bangers, but plenty of special guests from the local scene dropping by, as well as the evening's hosts MaLLy and St. Paul Slim.
And, to get everyone excited about the night, the Get Cryphy crew have also just dropped a fresh mixtape, Rocky 5 Thousand: Maximum Overdrive, which is available for free download.
The mixtape is a flurry of beats and rhymes from an impressive array of current and classic hip-hop artists, with additional verses from St. Paul Slim, Prof, MaLLy, and others. Maximum Overdrive is a guaranteed party starter for sure, but should serve as just a funky precursor to what the Get Cryphy crew has in store for their 5th Anniversary party.
In addition to providing the beats for some of the areas hip-hop heavyweights (Plain Ole Bill is the DJ for P.O.S. and Brother Ali, Jimmy2Times is the resident Rhymesayers Radio DJ, Last Word is the DJ for both MaLLy and M.anifest, and Fundo is Prof's DJ), the Get Cryphy crew have been heating up clubs and dancefloors for five years now, and this party in the Mainroom on February 8 should prove to be a real scorcher in the middle of the Minnesota winter, when we all need it the most.
Advance tickets can be purchased here, while the full event details are below.
