Take a break from 4 on the floor rhythm for a night and throw back to how it all began. Break beats were there in the beginning of dance music and have evolved into mind blowing sub genres of Drum & Bass, Trap, Dubstep, and of course Breaks! Let’s celebrate and explore what they’ve become by blasting the latest and greatest of this evolution through the speakers! SYOTDF.
We are very excited to have Nick Twist and DJ Jeff Hunter out to kick off this new event!!

Jeff Hunter - Jeff Hunter was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota and while in high school, Jeff heard his first 'techno' song. It was 'James Brown is Dead' by L.A. Style. This was to be the beginning of his transformation into what we call a 'techno-head'.
The second catalyst of this transformation came about when Jeff journeyed to Duluth, Minnesota to attend college. While at college he had the opportunity to get a time slot on KUMD public radio. He hooked up with dj Diene and they became 'The Harmonic Sideshow'. This is where Jeff Hunter learned the sacred art of beat matching.
The third and final key to Jeff's transformation happened in the summer of 98'. He and some friends went to Milwaukee for a party. When Jeff got there he realized that this wasn't just a party, it was a rave. Proceed 98', outside Milwaukee, Wisconsin in a recreation center was where Jeff's transformation into a techno-head became complete.
Jeff has been back in the Twin Cities for quite a while now and he's been one of the driving forces behind the increasing popularity of breakbeat music in Minnesota and the surrounding states. His style is comprised mostly of various breakbeat sounds, including Funky, Acid, Progressive, and Nu-Skool Breaks as well as other bass heavy music such as dubstep, electro, and grime.
Jeff is also heavily involved in the Minneapolis music scene as a part of the legendary event promotion company, Sound In Motion.
