Last Last Friday I attended the Mad Decent Block Party in Toronto for the third time.
If you have no idea what the Mad Decent Block Party is I’ll give you a quick low down. It all started back when Diplo created the label back in 2004 in Philadelphia. Throughout the years the label gained more and more attention. In 2008 the label held it’s first ever MDBP in Philly. Which was a local event and had a lot of children in attendance (this is nothing compared to block parties held by the label today)
Here’s a video of the first ever Mad Decent Block Party below.
(I would honestly just skip to all the parts with Elmo turning up because those are the most entertaining lol)
While looking to the first ever MDBP video I came across the Toronto one too
Personally I like the idea of MDBP being held at Yonge and Dundas because it’s right in the heart of the city and it looks like an actual block party. The only downside I would say is the amount of ‘other traffic’ (such as people trying to convert you into a new religion, trying to sell you anything possible, children … because not trying to see kids while I’m tryna to turn up, and etc.
This year I wasn’t as excited to attend because I was not feeling the line up that much. I used to let everybody know that ‘MDBP is my Christmas’ but this year I felt like selling my tickets and heading to NYC for ‘Fool’s Gold DAY OFF’ instead but I didn’t.
I went anyways, I went pretty late into it too. It was still good, because I went with the right people. I still wasn’t feeling the music though, I’m not saying the music was bad either, it was just really on a dubstep vibe that was not my cup of tea. It also ended right on the dot too, I thought Diplo was going to do an encore but he didn’t it was nbd tho (even tho I basically came for just him).
Will I make Mad Decent my Christmas next year ? Stay tuned to find out lol
