You want cool? Try this on for size. In a town and a time where everyone works every angle and drops every name, here comes a cat who, in this interview, didn't mention the fact that we both knew each other in the old-school days of Jessie's, Rose's, Brandt's Break, and Chili Pepper. Whether he did so to spare me the potential embarrassment of not immediately remembering, or simply because he wanted to stand strong on the laurels he's earned since then, is really beside the point. The fact is DJ Meta 4 is cool like that.
This street-credded sound slinger, alongside DJ Radamas, holds down the main room at Space each and every Saturday night. And if you know Space, you know that for the past two months, the megaclub's main room has been heavy with hip-hop. And if you know Meta 4, you know beats don't get much meatier.
But Meta 4 didn't just waltz into Space a couple of months ago and start dropping the knowledge. He's been turning the tables at downtown Miami's best-regarded dance joint for the past four years; before the main room, he and Radamas held court in the club's loft. Now you might say they've taken hip-hop and put it front and center.
