TWO YEARS OF DEF!
Two years ago, three djs were brought together to lay down the funk, slap down the fresh, to battle... to tha Def. Among many, one man witnessed this first event and our battles following, providing crucial dancefloor intelligence to Defmatch Champions and Challengers alike. Though many returned night after night to witness the Defmatch clashes, one committed dancer became such a regular sight among the crowds that when time came to find a challenger worthy of the Two Year Anniversary Defmatch battle, only one man came to mind.

That man is riverc0il.

This Saturday we celebrate two years of bringing you the electro, the breaks, the def, by inviting our most esteemed regular to take to the decks and challenge our sound in what will no doubt be the ultimate battle between dancefloor and DJ; where Defmatch dancefloor regular BECOMES the DJ.

To answer this looming challenge, phatmike hit the phones and recalled TRAYLOR back into service for this special night alongside resident champion COSINEZERO. You know what these boys can do to a dancefloor, but can they do battle with the man that knows the defmatch dancefloor like only a regular could?

This epic summit, two years in the making, could only be brought to you by DEFMATCH.


TWO YEARS OF DEF!
Featuring RIVERC0IL,
Returning Champion TRAYLOR,
and Resident Champion COSINEZERO

the new defmatch contender...
not that the return of defmatch on the 24th needs any additional hype... but why not add some fuel to the fire? saw new contender russell lewis spin this past weekend at the wellsley party and was VERY impressed. i had heard russell spin once before and knew he was a quality DJ... but that was house music mostly. turns out, russell is an awesome breaks DJ with choice tracks spanning the years and right up to the new stuff. technically on spot with a dance floor edge (had me dancing on a freaking RUG, and i NEVER dance on rugs!). returning champs are gonna have their hands full, this is gonna be good folks!

Current Mood: calm

Haze ltd. edition cover CD and article

We aren’t trying to loose our street mag identity but we do want to move the mag forward and evolve.  That doesn’t mean the contents will suffer.  I have been able to add colour and bring in a designer because Mofo is getting advertising from the right sources allowing the magazine to grow.  It will only progress at the rate allowed by funding from small labels and quality advertisers.  If these areas of finance bring revenue then Mofo will survive.
We believe the contents will improve. After writing 7 issues of this magazine we have learned many things about the music business including who are the right and wrong people to grace the pages of this magazine.
Many of you have offered to take out subscriptions allowing more revenue but we still want to provide a free magazine, which was the whole point in starting Mofo.  A free magazine promoting breakbeat but we may consider subscriptions to over seas readers because we don’t see any other way of getting the magazine to these people.  Thanks for picking up this magazine and reading, it means a lot to the people who have provided articles COMPLETELY FREE of charge working in their own time.

If you can help us get MOFO further a field please mail Jim; mofo@mofomag.com.
For your copy send a stamped addressed envelope big enough for to fit the mag (A5 -half of A4) to:
MOFO. PO BOX 32128. LONDON N4 1GA
