10 Do Overs 10 Cities | Vinyl Destination
Still on a high from the Shambhala Festival, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Vinyl Destination crew head to Portland where the energy continues! The Do-Over celebrates their 10th anniversary with ten simultaneous parties in cities around the world, including Portland where Jeff is the surprise guest. Before hitting the road, Dayne Jordan and DJ Ferno play a game of “Whodunit” with some suspicious smells. As always, the vibe at the Do-Over is electric. Jeff is especially pleased to see Playlist Retreat alum Sosupersam rocking the party. Post-show, Dayne gets a little choked up after receiving an amazing gift made especially for him. It seems things can’t get any better for the Vinyl Destination crew. But wait…THERE’S MORE. Next up is San Bernardino, California for the Nocturnal Wonderland Festival, and Jeff and the guys discover the festival definitely lives up to it’s name. Unseasonably cool temperatures and dust filled air are no match for a crowd entranced by DJ Jazzy Jeff’s killer set. Then the guys brush the dirt off their sneakers and head to Seoul, Korea. After a long journey, the first order of business is refueling the hungry crew, which is easier said than done in the wee hours of the morning. It turns out, hunger pangs are the least of their worries when a mysterious smell emerges from DJ Ferno’s direction…again.
