Tell Your LIB Story: Marty Folb aka MartyParty – 1/2 of PANTyRAiD
Posted by: Y2
I first met the Flemming brothers at my music festival on the beach in Costa Rica in 2007. Lightning In A Bottle was their vision at that point and was all they could talk about. In 2008 Ooah and I both went to LIB but didn’t know each other yet. I will never forget how they had manifested their vision exactly as they had dreamt it and described it. Truly impressive. So impressive that I actually volunteered and was part of the crew – and got to experience the incredible Do LaB family and their magical community. In 2008 – I met Ooah at the same festival in Costa Rica where I invited him to DJ. We hit it off immediately! That was the beginning of PANTyRAiD.
In 2009, we both went to LIB as friends and as PANTyRAiD but we had only written music at that point and had not performed. We decided to throw our first PANTyRAiD show in an underground art gallery tent past curfew at LIB. We didn’t know what to expect but when we arrived at the army style tent where the gallery was it was PACKED. We threw down as we do, a sexy dance party, and people loved and it and we had the time of our lives. The rest is history. In a strange way, LIB and the Do LaB inspired and facilitated the creation of PANTyRAiD.
Through the years, as my careers grew, I got to perform as MartyParty at LIB, got to throw some historic backstage parties after curfew but still hope to reunite with Ooah at LIB for a proper PANTyRAiD set.
