FEELIN' FESTIVE -- Saturday December 21st BUMP decks the halls of Blonde Bar for our annual Holiday Jam with two dudes who shred decks of all kinds -- we’re proud to feature ALEX OLSON (OlsonStuff, NY) and PAUL T (Sarcastic Disco, InsominacLTD, LA) at the party. Plus it’s BUMP co-founder Shige Koike’s bday JAM!
Alex Olson, if you don’t know, has been skating and digging music since he was a young teen, being a pro skater for crews like Girl, Supreme, Spitfire, Independent, and Nike SB. Alex’s interest in DJing and making edits grew alongside his skate career once he moved to New York around 2010 and met up with Paul T through mutual friends.
They made a quick connection through a shared love for The Music but also through their shared skate and fashion backgrounds, and have kept up their friendship over the years through music collaborations (2015’s big hit “Bianca Chandon presents &co. - Best Of Friends”) as well as DJ gigs together around the world including Tokyo, Italy, and NY. We even saw Alex play a Sarcastic party a few years back and it was a great set!
Both Paul and Alex’s fashion brands (Sarcastic and Bianca Chandon, respectively) have been super connected to dance music (it wasn't called SARCASTIC disco with Dj Harvey for nothing) and have honored dance music from their inception, and it’s a special feeling for us at BUMP to be able to bring these two spirit of the party people together for you under the Blonde Bar disco ball.
FURTHERMORE, it's Shige's birthday! Hot damn he's the man, and he's too humble to make it his birthday himself, but the rest of us at BUMP love him so much and want to celebrate him that we decided it was the right move. Sorry Shige! Lucky us!!!
TLDR - HOT night ahead.
Don't stop The music,
