We’re not quite sure how we can follow up last month’s First Friday with Locksmith, DJ True Justice and GQ (click here for a recap!) but the Oaklandish crew has tapped two dope DJs to carry the torch for the month of March. The Oaklandish crew is SUPER PROUD to announce that Track Panthers will host a DJ set for March’s First Friday!
A little history for those who don’t know: Track Panthers is a DJ tandem comprised of DJ Criddy and eazeYOURmind, Bay Area DJs who’ve been getting down
with the get down for some time.
DJ Criddy and eazeYOURmind (real names Chris and Erik, respectively) have both been involved with music their whole lives. Whether listening to various sounds and industry names growing up or headlining opening day jam sessions at the O.co parking lot, these two have developed a shared love of everything related to DJing. The two have paired up for a couple events in the past, but this is the first time they will be spinning together in our store front since Oaklandish’s 2014 Warehouse Sale! We are all in for a treat!
DJ Criddy had the DJ genetics passed down from his father who spun. He has steadily expanded his repertoire and has gone from a beginner to an artist hosting regular gigs all over the Bay. Chris’ favorite artists are Erykah Badu, Kendrick Lamar, J Cole, Maze and The Internet. He enjoys spinning Hip-Hop, Funk and Soul in his sets.
eazeYOURmind started spinning around 2001, sticking strictly to vinyl, and was similarly inspired by friends and family members. Having idolized hip-hop, rap and urban culture in general, Erik began spinning strictly Hip-Hop and rap, but his sounds evolved as he delved deeper into his sets. It was the DJ grind that made Erik appreciate everything about music performance. From audio control to scratching abilities to generally dope blends, eazeYOURmind began using his time as a DJ to share all types of sounds with others, regardless of their familiarities. Erik’s favorite music (right now) is Alabama Shakes, Sango of the Soulection crew, Thundercat and Amy Winehouse. His favorite genres to play are deep house, blues and future funk.
With the combination of experience and originality that Track Panthers bring to the table, the event is sure to be fun for everyone. Oaklandish is really excited to have these two high-caliber DJs join forces for our March First Friday act, so make sure you slide through to 1444 Broadway and catch the vibes. It’s sure to be one hell of a night! As usual, the event is free of charge!
