A love for music, as big as his smile, as big as his music range, as big as his <ahem>. It is a joy not just to hear Lucho, but to bask in the energy he puts out from the booth. Adept at breaks as much as house, it's all a matter of mood of what you'll get in his set... or a matter of the queen's request ;)” - Dao, from Dao & Pwny.

Bass crusaders for this month will be...........

Jive - FiX
soundcloud.com/jivebeatz

Stephan Ford aka DJ Jive began tuning his ears and learned to read the language of music at the ripe young age of 10 in Southern California. The pre-teen Jive would often be found challenging the neighborhood kids to break dance to influential music, such as Herbie Hancock's
"Rock-It". In later years, he gravitated toward the progressive sounds of industrial music at LA underground parties. From percussion to strings to turntables, he found his passion in dance music while melding genres, eras, and music disciplines.

Since 2003, Jive has DJ'd the Bay Area's largest clubs such as Ruby Skye, Mighty, Paradise Lounge, plus global events like Burning Man and Love Fest. In San Francisco, he is a resident DJ for FiX for the past 7 years.

In 2006 Jive was asked to take over the global airwaves with his own radio show "JiveBeatz" for Nuskoolbreaks, which is the largest online break beat community in the world.

Ecq - Strategik, StrategiK SF

ECQ aka David Alexander has been in The Electronic music scene since 1993. Starting in Orlando, The home of the Breakbeat, his love of breaks started early on. Living in Seattle back in 99, ECQ Started Broken Grooves @ CONTOUR which is now run by his Crew in Seattle, www.themidnightsons.com. To this Day BROKEN GROOVES is the Longest Running Breakbeat Weekly IN THE WORLD. After moving to the Bay Area in 2003 to start a new adventure with his Wife, ECQ Joined forces with Strategiksf.com and the rest is History. Showing his Love of Reggae and Booty music in his sets, ECQ will always bring the Bass. Its time to Drop the Breaks!

next event Friday September 5, 2014 with Influence (Strategik SF)




FAULTLINE - an all Breaks monthly brought to you by Justin Johnson, Eric Riggsbee, & DJ 138

This month we bring to you,

INFLUENCE

(Strategik)

Influence started his piratical career in a time called Ye Olden School. Quickly rising through ranks of deck swabbing, plank laying, wenching, & rumming; his golden years came to end upon the capture of his ship by a band of jolly rogers on the ship Strategik (they were good with a cannon, but not so much with spelling). Locked away in the ship's depths, every night he was told, "Good night, Westley. Good work. Sleep well. I'll most likely kill you in the morning." All seemed lost, so he got into Djing, took over the ship, called himself Influence, and the rest was basically, history... basically.
