    The Guy Behind The Lost Lands Booty Eating Competition Bares It All [EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]


    Guest

    Lost Lands 2017 was one of the most interesting festivals ever to go down in prehistoric history, and some of the most outrageous stories of all time came out of it!

    After all the hype surrounding the now infamous “Booty Eating Competition,” we just had to get to the bottom of it (pun intended). Brett Fabina has stepped forward as the fearless leader behind (another pun intend) the contest and we had the opportunity to speak with this now legend.

    It wasn’t just all about fun and booty, as many would assume. Like a cherry on top, this camp also raised $2,255.80 in cash for Feeding Florida, an organization currently dedicated to providing hurricane relief.

    Without further ado… Here is the legit scoop on the booty sundae competition as told by Brett Fabina himself. This guy definitely knows what’s up — no ifs , ands or butts about it.

    Who thought up this crazy idea?

    I’ll admit, Booty Sundaes were my idea. It was not meant to be sexual in any way. It was all in good fun and was intended purely for laughs. I love to have a good time and I try to make things as unique and memorable as possible. I’ve been doing this for years and each time I try to make it different. We go bigger and better every time. We made trophies for the contest and handed them out to the competitors. It was all pre planned and had nothing to do with the fundraiser. P.S. all participants showered prior to the contest.

    Did you engage in the contest? Giving or receiving (lol)?

    Of course I did. You can’t host a booty eating contest and not participate, haha. I participated in both sides of the contest. I don’t think any of us have ever laughed so hard. No, we did not actually eat each other’s booty holes. We simply licked some whipped cream off of some cheeks. We spent 2 days working and raising money for hurricane relief, so on Sunday we wanted to laugh and hold all of our contests that we promised everyone. We had a wet T-Shirt contest and handed out trophies for that as well.

    How many other people participated?

    There were 5 people who participated in total. There were a lot more that signed up, but initially we were supposed to host the event on Saturday. We had food from the fundraiser left over and received some extra food donations, so we did another brunch to raise more money instead. That was of course our primary objective. As a result, we lost a large number of contestants by switching to Sunday. However, we managed to raise an additional $900 on Saturday, so it was well worth it.

    Were there actual winners, and how were they chosen?

    Yes, there were actual winners. We had judges for the competition and used white boards to keep track of everyone’s score. The score was out of 10 and contestants were judged based on how hard they made us laugh as well as on personal style.

    Pro tips for booty sundae eating? 

    Don’t even think about it. Just dive in and have a blast! Live your life, be free, and be free of judgment. We can’t be a part of a festival community if we’re going to judge and bash each other. We all know that’s not what festivals are about. They’re about peace, love, unity, and respect. If you can’t live by that, then why even attend EDM festivals in the first place? They are supposed to be a place for people to be weird together and be free. So jump on in to a booty Sundae and enjoy yourself!

    What are some other crazy things you witnessed at Lost Lands?

    I was honestly so busy enjoying the stage and the production that I didn’t see too many crazy things. On Saturday we put a fork in the ground at the paradox stage and danced around it for over an hour. As we continued, more and more people came over and joined the dance circle. They started giving it offerings (kandi, clothing, hats, glasses, helmets, etc). Definitely one of the strangest things we’ve done, but once again, it was hilarious and everyone loved it.

    Please expand on your charity effort… Because that is hella awesome!

    After the destruction from Irma, Charlie Bales and Eliot Myers from my team came to me with the idea of raising money for hurricane relief. I loved the idea and immediately started looking into different charities with Susan Quick (another member from our team). Susie made initial contact with Lindsay Fountain with Feeding Florida and told her what we were doing. I talked to Lindsay the next day and we have all been in touch ever since. It has been a pleasure working with Feeding Florida and we look forward to the future. This will not be the last time we do this. We plan to continue fundraising at festivals and change the festival world for the better. We want to make a difference and get help to those who need it. That is after all what EDM is all about. Peace, Love, Unity and Respect. If you don’t live by that, then what is the point of going to festivals in the first place? We have brothers and sisters within our group who were affected by Irma. They almost were unable to make it to the festival because of it. We hope what we accomplished here encourages others to do the same in the future. I do want to give a shout out to those who went out of their way to make this fundraiser a success. They deserve it. Charlie Bales, Claire Koellhoffer, Susan Quick, Brandon Smith, Aaron Stemple, Shane Garrett, Gabriella Giancola, Amanda Lawrence, Nathan Meyer, Lindsey Prochaska, Eliot Myers, Oscar Lopez, Andrew Wilcox, Taylor Montgomery, Steve Vance, Devon Dougherty, and of course Brett Fabina (That’s me). I also want to give a very special shout out to our video and camera crew (we will have an aftermovie for the afterparty campsite. I’m hoping to have it done by Christmas). Thank you Alan Joseph, Travis Barron, Jorge Hinojosa, and Jeff Van Fox. These guys did a phenomenal job!

    Are you guys going to throw booty sundae competition 2.0 at Lost Lands 2018?

     
    Absolutely! Next year we will make it even bigger and better with one exception. All participants need to know their boundaries with their partners and must be respectful. Remember, what we are doing is all in good fun. We do not want people to actually perform sexual acts on each other publicly. For Lost Lands 2018, I’m bringing sprinkles, caramel and strawberry syrup, and cherries. We’re going to have build your own booty sundaes.

      DJ SPEN:
      US house icon DJ Spen first laid his hand on the decks at the age of thirteen while growing up in his native city of Baltimore - he hasn’t looked back since.
      Also known as Sean Spencer, the talented DJ and producer began his illustrious career in the mid-’80s as a hip-hop radio DJ making beats under the moniker Numarx, responsible for writing and recording 'Girl You Know It’s True,' later covered and made into a smash hit by Milli Vanilli. The years that followed saw DJ Spen move away from hip-hop and towards the classic Chicago house sound that would define his productions for years to come, after joining forces with famed production collective The Basement Boys. Working under the name Jasper Street Co., DJ Spen released his first 12″ through Basement Boys Records in 1995, the energetic gospel house cut ‘A Feeling.’ This was the first in a lauded series of releases for the label that brought Spen commercial and dancefloor success over the next decade, earning him international recognition as a house music pioneer.  In 2004, DJ Spen split from Basement Boys, releasing through Black Vinyl Records and his own label Code Red before founding his second imprint Quantize Recordings, which has since become a regular outlet for his music. Alongside his own productions, DJ Spen has built a reputation as a talented and prolific remix artist, putting his own unique stamp on pop anthems from Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Everything but the Girl, Toni Braxton and more. If that isn’t enough, he’s still spinning eclectic and soulful jams in clubs across the globe, further establishing his status as an eminent figure in house music, both past and present.
       

      DR PACKER:
      Dr Packer is an alias of West Australian DJ/Producer Greg Packer, set up for Remixes & Edits of mainly retro music such as 70’s, 80’s, 90’s Soul, Disco, Funk, Hip Hop & Reggae. Greg although known more for ‘Liquid Drum & Bass’ regularly plays sets of ‘Old School Funk, Disco & Hip Hop. Greg purchased his first record in 1982 at the age of 10. That record was ‘Grandmaster Flash – The Message’! Greg grew up in Northampton in the UK, frequently listening to his mother’s disco records (to which he says he had no choice!). In the 70’s it wasn’t uncommon to hear music such as ‘Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now’ or ‘And The Beat Goes On’ played in the house, so the disco thing really was his first introduction to music, records became his life and he has collected 25,000+ over the years.  Dr Packer has quickly become a mainstay in the sets of some of the biggest names in the disco world with the likes of Greg Wilson, Hot Toddy, Fingerman, Joey Negro and Norman Jay regularly featuring his edits in their performances. All of this support helped Dr Packer to be voted #1 in the Traxsource Top 20 Nu Disco Artists midway through 2015. At the end of the year Dr Packer came in at #4 in the Top 100 Disco Artists

      Following on from epic originals and impeccable remixes earlier this year, you’d think Benson had already reached the pinnacle of 2018. Yet as we move into the latter part, his next release featuring Stace Cadet and Yeah Boy continues to see Benson rise above the ranks. Releasing on his own esteemed Medium Rare label, check out heavenly collaboration – Faith. 
       
      Glorious chords and an impelling vocal graces the track with ethereal touches whilst the euphoric bass line ascends this psalm into clubbers paradise, making Faith a moving piece of house music fortified with saintly credibility. A club ready anthem as well as a peak time track, Benson is set to reach listeners of biblical proportion. 
       
      Having already had an exceptional year, Benson’s career continues to skyrocket. The Australian producer has accumulated millions of streams with the likes of originals including Hold Out and a remix of Stace Cadet’s High. Not stopping there, Benson is also dominating our airwaves with national airplay whilst securing an in demand residency slot with triple J. Gig-wise, Benson impressively launched a sold-out headline tour, clearly demonstrating himself as an artist of prominence we can’t wait to see where Benson takes us next on his musical journey. 
       
      Benson – Faith ft. Stace Cadet and Yeah Boy is out now via Medium Rare Recordings.

      OzClubbers Feature
      ICARUS - Man of the Land (feat. Real Lies)
      Release date: Friday 2nd November

       
      Their last track ‘Echoes’ hit #3 on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Chart  Annie Mac has been a long-term admirer, not only picking four consecutive singles as her Hottest Record but also booking them for her Lost & Found Festival. Currently the duo are on tour Rüfüs Du Sol for North American shows which culminates with three nights at New York’s Terminal 5, and then are also special guests at various UK shows.  “The Bristol-based brotherly duo have established themselves as out of the box thinkers.” – Mixmag “Clearly illustrates why the duo is being heralded as one of the UK's most promising talents at the moment.” – Earmilk  
      Fresh from releasing their latest track ‘Echoes’ which hit #3 on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Chart, Bristol’s innovative crossover production duo Icarus have teamed up with London trio Real Lies for their new single ‘Man of the Land’.
       
      Both ‘Man of the Land’ and ‘Echoes’ feature on Icarus’s new EP ‘This Must Be The Place’ which follows on November 30th. The EP represents Icarus’s latest longer form conceptual project after releasing the ‘In The Dark’ EP earlier this year.
       
      ‘Man of the Land’ represents the darker, cinematic extreme of Icarus’s sonic spectrum. The hypnotic beat captures the feeling of pounding the city streets late at night before the drop accentuates its dramatic feel. It’s a track which finds Icarus strengthening the evocative atmospheric qualities of past tracks such as ‘No Sleep’ and ‘Hiding’.
       
      Real Lies’ lyrics delve into the experiences of a transient character whose solitary life on the capital’s empty streets is set against the contrast of its hectic late night bars. It captures a feeling of urban anxiety that could only be nocturnal London. As the song’s narrator notes, “I come from Cally Road, not California.”
       
      Widely praised for their self-titled debut album, Noisey summarised Real Lies’ approach by stating, “Although an echo chamber of past influences mixed with the contemporary ambience of Burial or Jamie xx, their defining factor is the thoroughly modern ennui that infects their lyrics.”
       
      Icarus explain the EP’s concept: “The theme of this EP is based around always moving from one place to the next, or running away – as well as the thoughts, feelings and emotions which come from living this way. There are moments of feeling free from being tied down and having endless possibilities. But there’s also a loneliness and anxiety that comes from simply moving on rather than addressing your problems. It’s not about making a judgment on people who are in that situation, it’s just an exploration of a yin-and-yang lifestyle.”
       
      Since debuting in 2015 with the ‘Don’t Cry Wolf’ EP, ICARUS have progressed from being a hotly-tipped name to become a regular fixture on daytime radio. Annie Mac has been a long-term admirer, not only picking four consecutive singles as her Hottest Record (‘Love Has Come Around’,‘King Kong’, ‘Trouble’ and ‘No Sleep’) but also booking them for her Lost & Found Festival.
       
      ICARUS’s other radio highlights include a sun-scorched set at Radio 1 Live in Ibiza and contributing an Essential Mix for Pete Tong. In addition to Annie Mac, their other supporters at radio have included Pete Tong, Phil Taggart, Danny Howard, MistaJam, Monki and Alice Levine. Their wide-ranging list of fans also includes Pendulum, who invited them to remix their classic track ‘Tarantula’ from their all-star collabs album ‘The Reworks’.
       
      Earlier this year, ICARUS debuted their full live band show which they then took on a headline tour and then to the South West Four Weekender. They’re now poised to hit the road with Australia's own Rüfüs Du Sol on their ‘Solace’ tour: first with a run of North American shows which culminates with three nights at New York’s Terminal 5, and then as special guests at various UK shows.
