Blasts from the Past: Ohoi! turns 6

We are going deep underground today, somewhere hidden, where pigs, bottles of rum and graffiti go to die. After a bit of mixing and blending, everything gets reborn in new forms.

This is the 6th anniversary of Ohoi!

There are lots of presents and give-aways in the photos, but do not feel left out. There is a Christmassy Competition after the photos where YOU have the chance to get covered in pressies and spilt rum. In a nice way, of course.

And then everyone digs in.

TIME FOR PRESENTS! FOR YOU!

If this has gotten you in an Ohoi! mood and you want more, here is your chance!

This Saturday Ohoi! is hosting their annual JuleBass party at Stengade in Copenhagen. Lots of proud traditions here, like bass shaking up the entire building (dj’s on all three floors) and lots of Christmas presents and give-aways from Carharrt, Streetmachine, Bas Under Buen etc. etc.

To get you in the mood, here’s a Bas Under Buen shot (yup, from my Hipstamatic phase).

The Ohoi! crew has done so many parties and pushed and pulled so many Function 1 sound systems up and down everywhere, they don’t even remember how many JuleBass parties they have thrown anymore.

No matter! But it’s the Christmas month and time for friendly nostalgia and reminiscing. Let’s help them relive some of the good memories from Rum’n’Bass, Bas Under Buen, early beginnings at PappaHotel etc. etc.

  1. Saturday april 12 2008: Skream & Kromestar at Stengade as a young gun:) Bass in the pants and nostrils make the girls find their inner “spirit”. Intense!

    • Jeg nåede ikke selve festen, til gengæld var jeg til efterfesten i den lejlighed som Stengade havde på det tidspunkt, som nok er det voldeligste jeg nogensinde har oplevet. 2000F, Tim, Mami, Rolf og mig + nogle der gik ret hurtigt fordi det blev alt, alt for crazy. Skream og Kromestar lå og sov. Jeg endte med at gå da Frederik begyndte at snakke om at hænge mig op i loftet og sætte strøm til mig. Inden da hang jeg på et tidspunkt halvt ude af vinduet mens Frederik tog kvælertag på mig og der løb en maraton forbi nede på Nørrebro. Godt billederne er blevet pillet ned fra nettet igen. 😀

  2. “grime part 3” – 10. november 2008, må være den mest intense OHOI fest jeg har været til! Virus syndicate og andre Manchester grime folk rev stengade midt over! Store pinde og whiskey flasker røg rundt på scenen, mens mc’erne (og der var mange) nærmest sloges for at komme på miccen, og blev i øvrigt ved med at være på hele aftenen! Hvis jeg ikke husker galt var det MRK1 der var bag pulten den aften! endnu en legendarisk aften i det bagerste hjørne af mainfloor 😀 Har stadig plakaten hængende der hjemme 😀

    • Smuk beskrivelse af grime-mc-kaos på scenen! – man kan lige se det for sig, haha. 🙂 Kan du ikke lige tjekke din plakat, om det ikke var den 15. nov.?

      • Ah, i så fald har du årstallet forkert. Dit favoritmoment er fra 2007! 🙂 Året efter, den 15. november 2008, var der en Krakenfest på Stengade. DEN var jeg til. Festarkivaren, at your service! 😉 Og nyd det maximalt i aften.

  3. Så, så mange oplevelser…. Den første er måske den nemmeste: jeg er til housewarming hos min ven Klaus B ude i Sydhavnen og kender nærmest ingen bortset fra ham. Det hele foregår i en relativt lille 2-værelses, men der er vist 4-5 DJ’s på programmet den aften… altså inde i stuen for de 20-30 mennesker vi nu var. På et tidspunkt spiller der så en DJ, der gudhjælpemig har en MC med ovenikøbet, og de spiller PRÆCIS den musik jeg ikke vidste jeg gerne ville høre men på et ubevidst plan har gået og savnet efter jeg var flyttet til København. Jeg falder hurtigt i snak med dem og de fortæller at de kalder sig 2000F og Tim Driver og lige har startet en ting der hedder OHOI!.

    Fra det tidspunkt og de næste 12 år frem har der været SÅ mange fantastiske og skøre oplevelser:
    – Den månedlige postordre mix-CD
    – Høre Kristobal spille Dark Garage nede i Basement
    – De første gange 2000F spillede Rusko: Cockney Thug
    – Wiley på A-huset
    – Snitter alene med Riko Dan på hans hotelværelse kl. 8 om morgenen efter at han havde MC’et nonstop i 4 timer på Stengade fordi vi havde røget Jammer ned.
    – Benga & Skream første gang på Vega
    – DJ EZ på Rust for 30 mennesker med hele festen på scenen
    – DMZ til RAW i siloen
    – Den røde løber hele vejen ud til Enghavevej til den første fest i Basement
    – Fat Morgans hest på fodgængerfeltet
    – J Da Flex i Basement
    – Vex’d og Quiet Storm på Stengade
    – jeg kan blive ved men gider ikke mere….

    Hvis jeg vinder, så giv billeterne til en værdigt trængende. jeg kan desværre ikke være med til Julebas i år. 😥

    • Haha, jeg elsker begyndelsen!!! Min første erindring om 2000F er faktisk også fra en eller anden helt mast, meget lille privatfest i en kvartværelseslejlighed, men med dj-pult. Det var vist i Valby.

  4. Bas under Buen sidste år var for sprødt! Vi mødtes 7 stykker til frokost først. Der blev drukket snaps og fisk i store mængder inden vi tog til feeest! Det var sidste år, det var mega varmt, så vi svedte i solen og svedte foran scenen. Glæder mig til julebas på lørdag! 3 af os 4 der kommer lørdag var faktisk samlet til den bas sidste år, så der bliver par-ty!! SES ❤

  5. Meldte mig som frivillig til Bas Under Buen på Frederiksberg dagen før, da der var nogle stykker der var hoppet fra i sidste øjeblik. Opsatte plakater, samlede barer, træk kabler mm. og blev belønnet med den vildeste basfest!
    Der var intet at gøre jeg var hooked!
    Røg med BUB-bussen til Odense og weekenden efter til Jylland, hvor Aarhus og Aalborg blev lagt ned!
    Startede som last-minute-hands under Bispeengbuen og sluttede som ansvarlig for strømmen under Limfjordsbroen.
    Når jeg i fremtiden tænker tilbage på 2014 (og det vil jeg!), vil BUB touren klart være en af de fedeste oplevelser!

    – Tak for en fantastisk tour og alt det lækre OHOI! arrangerer!
