The sound of melody imploding.

Baltimore Breakbeat

It's the sound of Brooks Robinson scooping up your shoulda-been-a-double and Throwing. Your. Ass. Out!

It's certainly not the sound of Melvin Mora.

It's "Pick 'Em Up" into "Gimme Sum Head" into "Don't Waste My Time".

two years pass...

But a decade ago this weekend, it all changed. Hours after that triumphant set at Artscape, Edgerton hosted a pool party. Guests saw her dive in — but never swim out. She had suffered fatal neck injuries.

Thousands attended her funeral. Many anguished over a hometown hero’s abrupt death. Colleagues and loved ones agree that the city — and its signature sound — have never been the same....
To Club fans, her loss felt that it had an effect on the music scene in an instant, said Errigh LaBoo, 30, the founder of dance and youth management network Bmore Than Dance. Club music, typically heard around the clock on 92Q, dwindled. Though Club continued to have some major moments — the peak arguably coming in early 2009 when Kanye West did a remix of Baltimore Club artist DJ Class’ hit, “I’m the [Expletive]” — the scene had lost its guiding light.

City youth — a segment of fans some DJs ignored but Edgerton embraced by performing at school dances — was also hit hard. Suddenly, there was no leader in music for the youth, and no bridge between old and new school Club listeners, LaBoo said. There were fewer teen parties, which kept kids off the streets, said Terry Wedington, 27, a choreographer and founder of TSU Dance Crew.
...But the love of Club is still there, and residents are still propelling the sound and culture forward. Many credit artists like producer Mighty Mark, Thunderbird Juicebox, TT the Artist and members of the enduring dance community like LaBoo and Wedington.

Cool part of The Wire was when Chris Partlow figured out he could identify the NYC dealers invading their turf by grilling them about Baltimore club music.
