This Orlando, Florida, DJ/producer plays about 150 gigs a year, mostly big rooms and outdoor fests. Icey was the first American to sign to Brit dance mogul Pete Tong's FFRR label and his cell frequently bleats with calls from people like Chemical Brothers, Deee-Lite, and Groove Armada requesting his remixing skills. His gigs are brand-name experiences and thus predictable, but they're still impossible to remain unmoved to. Supporting his new For the Love of the Beat mix disc (System Recordings), Icey mostly reaffirms his uncanny knack for funky phatitude. A succulent Soul Hooligan track ("Algebra," remixed by Mr. Breaker & the Technician) and Two Lone Swordsmen's "Neuflex" mashed together with 2nd Gen's "And/Or" are highlights, along with some of Icey's strongest solo productions yet. Part of Fire & Ice 2 with DJ Skribble & Anthony Acid, Mr. Wiggles, Hyperfunk, and others. Studio-B, 333 Elliott Ave W, 728-6991, 10 pm-5 am, all ages, $20.
If you seek the fluffy vanilla center of popular dance music that will ruffle nobody's feathers (except people with a modicum of taste), go see DJ Skribble do his smoove thang. Best known as MTV's in-house jock and a member of early-'90s New York hiphoppers Young Black Teenagers (they were white and, uh, aren't all teenagers young?), Skribble has eight mix CDs under his belt. His repertoire mostly encompasses mainstream hiphop and vocal-centric house, typified by remixes of Cher's "Believe" and Paula Cole's "I Believe in Love." Skribble is supporting the release of his new mix disc, MDMA Reloaded (Ministry of Sound). He must be stopped. Club Medusa, 2218 Western Ave, 448-8887, 9 pm-2 am, 21+, $15.
SATURDAY MAY 1
DJ LADY TRIBE, DJ BEEJ, BABY-YU & RG, HIN GOGO DANCERS
L.A.'s DJ Lady Tribe looks like Pam Anderson and spins hiphop in a bikini top. Do you care what her sets sound like? Fellow Angeleno DJ Beej looks like Pauly Shore and spins trance and progressive house at his loftily named Pimp 'N Ho parties and Club Rubber monthly events that typically draw 15,000 revelers. Toronto's Baby-Yu & RG undoubtedly will spin the crunkest hiphop bangers allowed to air on commercial radio stations in cities with six-figure populations. The Hin Gogo Dancers will provide the deathless spectacle of silicone-jobbed tits jiggling in Wonderbras. Premier, 1700 First Ave, 382-7877, 10 pm-3 am, 21+, $5 before 11 pm.
