TASC – Live at the Channel One NYE (Dec 31, 2010)

For our NYE party the crew all drew straws to see who would play the midnight set. Tasc Money won the draw and took on the countdown with his trademark selection, dropping everything from new gems to certified classic’s all while alternating between Grey Goose and that New Years bubbly stuff (Veuve Cliquot).

The French James Bond built up the intensity to the boiling point and turned the House Party into a sweaty, grinding rave full of normally responsible people degenerating into some illicit and deviant activities… here is the live recording featuring heat from the likes of:

Samo Sound Boy, Riva Starr, Sam Tiba, Mastiksoul, Riva Starr, Julio Bashmore, MJ Cole, Deekline, Bart B More, Kanye West, A-Trak, Plump DJs, Steve Angello, Kingdom, Zinc, Jesse Rose, Todd Terry, Kenny Dope, Treasure Fingers, Drop The Lime, Buraka Som Sistema, The Martin Brothers and Gucci Mane.
