MoPo (aka Motion Potion aka Robbie Kowal) is one of America’s most versatile, experienced and flat-out joyous party rockers. His decade long mission is to ‘put the party back into the party’, and to connect the casual music fan with the hard core dance music mavens and prove that music is more than just beats. Most commonly a bootleg breakbeat pusher, MoPo is kown for a rare ability to play exactly the right music for the moment and an expertise with a wide variety of genres that he seamlessly melds into a coherent blend. Since breaking out as a rare groove Dj in the 90’s he has spent the 21st Century using funky breakbeat, trip hop and tech house as a backdrop for his genre-bending experiments. From a near religious love of funk and hip hop, to a lifetime study of rock and roll to a massive aptitude for latin, reggae and other outernational formats, MoPo incorporates bits and pieces of music culture into electronic edits that slam the dancefloor. As a backdrop, he creates, edits or chooses only the biggest baddest breaks, hooks and drops to create a sound that truly slams. To the dancer, MoPo is a breath of fresh air, often transforming a room into collective song or crowd chant that connect the audience to the DJ. These abilities have seen him preceding, following or tagging with a who’s who of breakbeat heroes like Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Icey, Cut Chemist, Grandmaster Flash, James Lavelle, Bassnectar, Evil 9, DJ Vadim, Tipper, Freq Nasty, Kraak & Smaak, Aquasky, the Freestylers, Future Funk Squad, Fort Knox 5, A.Skillz, Featurecast, and All Good Funk Alliance.
