Sip The Juice is proud to present a one-off party that Bristol hasn’t seen the likes of before: a rare showing of DJ Bobbito Garcia’s acclaimed basketball documentary, ‘Doin’ It In The Park’ complete with all-vinyl 45s DJ sets from Bobbito aka Kool Bob Love himself plus DMC champ Mr Thing, local hero Boca 45 and funk edits king Jim Sharp.
Back in the 90s, if you knew your hiphop you’d know about Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito’s show on WKCR radio. It ran from 1990-1998 and from Nas to Jay-Z to Big L to Wu Tang, the show gave many of today’s hiphop superstars their first few bars of airtime, and was rightly rewarded the most influential hiphop show of all time by Source Magazine.
But music isn’t Bobbito Garcia’s only area of expertise. As well as being a sneaker aficionado (his book ‘Where’d You Get Those?’ is essential reading for dap lovers), he can ball too. The cultural overlap between hiphop and basketball is bigger than Lebron James’s flip flops, and ‘Doin’ It In The Park’, a documentary focusing on pick-up basketball (aka street b-ball) co- directed by Bobbito is another superb entry in the list of films that bridges the gap between the sport and the art form.
Sip The Juice have secured an exclusive screening of the film and on the night will feature DJ sets from the aforementioned artists plus food from Bagel Boy, 5 Pointz giveaway and streetball competitions with the Bristol Braves basketball team in the yard too. So what you waiting for? Come watch a legend of the court and the turntables in action.

“On November 9th 1993 A Tribe Called Quest’s ‘Midnight Marauders’ dropped. ATCQ was and still is my favourite rap group and listening to Marauders now, it seems incredible how it’s endured the test of time. With the advancement of technology it has been possible to attain previously unreleased vocals and with this in mind I started to rebuild tracks from Marauders from their original samples. (it’s important to note that technology has only moved so far and the majority of vocals were impossible to get) I took a lot of time to imagine how Q-tip would have captured the samples, probably using a turntable and an MPC. Consciously not using pitch correct, sampling one side of the audio and bouncing it to stereo and continually trying to get the right filter, echo, pitch and sound from the original sample. I also re-imagined big sections of tracks paying homage to some of my favourite producers such as Premier, DJ Shadow, 9th Wonder and Large Professor. I thought about what it would have been like to have some legends of the game such as Biggie, Nas and Biz Markie dropping guest verses next to Tip and Phife. I completely understand how dear Tribe fans hold Marauders and it was important to me that it had a fresh take but stayed true to the original ethos. This was a labour of love and I hope people dig it for what it is.” – Jim Sharp
