Border Breaks: World Funky Sounds


Globe-Trekker/Beat-Selector DJ B.O (Tou-JAM) brings planet spanning sounds to Saigon. Expect eclectic Asian island ass-shakers; high treble from Sub-Sahara Africa; and yes, nomadic hip hop from parts unknown, when he brings you: Border Breaks – International Funky Sounds.

Born in the USA, as a relentless peripatetic, DJ B.O doesn’t just gig in Shanghai, he’s played more than 11 countries. A cantina in Caribbean nation of Grenada or the State Symphony Orchestra Hall of Mongolia, or yes, even his infamous North Korean gig, DJ B.O incorporates snatches of sounds from wherever he goes. That
provides the tapestry to provide a funky pattern for a warm quilt of poppiness: he’s got a borderline encyclopedic knowledge of hit tunes from the early 20th century to today. Whether it’s 40’s New Orleans jukebox jump blues or Hong Kong hip hop, he knows his
shit. No Shame in the Game.
