Soappy *Breaks*

(Tight Crew, RI)


DJ Soappy has steadily developed an almost unsurpassed reputation for tearing up dance floors throughout the east coast. He has quickly built a name for himself with his innovative mixing style and superior track selection. Over the years he has built a reputation for bringing some of the most cutting edge breaks as well as bridging the gap between genres (Dubstep, House, Psy-Trance, Garage, & Drum n' Bass). His natural sense to read the crowd keeps the dance floor moving, and people wanting more. DJ Soappy is a staple in the New England Rave scene known not only for his DJ skills, but also as the Co-founder of "Tight Crew" Productions. Tight Crew is the northeast's largest rave event productions company. Drawing thousands of ravers to each event.

In the summer of 2008 a collaborative project was launched that would combine the choice skill sets of two dynamic New England area breaks djs, namely FiG and Soappy, to be known thereafter as Big n' Dope! This combination of experience and enthusiasm is firmly founded in the duo's strong technical proficiency, impeccable selection of quality tracks and their innate ability to deliver high energy and performance to seething dance floors. Soappy and FiG have a combined sphere of influence that reaches from Maine down to Maryland having made appearances at all points there and in between. They have respectively and collaboratively been called upon to open for such leading industry names as: Skrillex, DJ Dan, Zeds Dead, Plump DJs, DJ Icey, Ludachrist, Adam Freeland, the Freestylers and Uberzone versus Bassbin Twins.

In May of 2009 Big n' Dope released their much anticipated self-titled debut demo mix. The mix immediately garnered much praise from all corners of the north east scene and has since become a favorite amongst party-goers and industry professionals alike. Now firmly established as a force within the north east scene this forward thinking duo is cultivating an expanding sound and evolving far beyond the borders of their breaks base to include Dubstep, Drum and Bass, House and various elements of "Psy". Look for many upcoming Big n' Dope appearances in the near future showcasing this sonic evolution as well as the follow up demo mix "Beyond the Breakers" now available at a rave near you!

"It has been an amazing ride over the years, I feel privileged to have the opportunity to share the music that really moves me with others; it has enlightened me with a sense of purpose to give back in some way to the community that has felt like home to me for so many years".
