https://soundcloud.com/djdao


Been spinning a long time, 20 years, almost half my life. Have spun nearly every genre, have vacillated between taking this very seriously and not giving a fuck. It is more than a hobby, this is integrating an artistic conversation spanning the globe and it is my passion. This particular conversation we’ve been having in the Deep (house/tech/breaks) arena is particularly dope, and I’m excited to be a participant again by spinning & producing that which moves my ass and soul, and raises my hands to the sky.

Mixing is my zen-state. It isn’t an intentional act as much as it communion with sound, with the muse.I don’t plan Sets. My mantra is the ‘right song at the right time’, and you’re never going to answer that question until you’re in the moment. I kicked the vinyl habit in ‘05, but I still use CDJs.. You can hear the excitement in a live-mixed set, when there’s no net, when the DJ is a sneeze away from a trainwreck. I like a slippery beat or two, to flash your cards, to show this is real, this is Now, and we’re deep in it, together. I also only like to mix deep, 3 mins or so. It isn’t deep music unless you mix it deep, over your head in sounds, dancing with them as if Tai Chi, rolling them into another as if an Akido master. The tracks dictate how they want to be mixed, the moment dictates what energy wants to emerge next; a DJ isn’t there to be intentional, we’re supposed to be receptive. You can hear the difference.

★RED ARMY (TRANSLATION | DUST AUDIO | ONSET)★

Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/redarmyaudio/

Soundcloud:
https://soundcloud.com/redarmyaudio


In the mid 90’s, Red Army aka ‘James Fuhring’ rocked audiences in seminal punk/hardcore bands Mohinder and Jenny Piccolo. It was during the latter that he accidentally discovered the sound of Drum & Bass while in Berlin on a European tour. James was so blown away by this sound; he shortly sold all of his music equipment to buy a sampler, turntables and a mixer. The first two years were rough as he knew no one involved in DNB, only a local Santa Cruz radio show called 'The Metallic Blurp,' hosted by the Argon Records crew. James, on a whim, emailed the radio show to ask if he could meet up with other like minds. There he would meet the other two members that would form the 3-piece, Red Army. Together, they would shortly set dance floors on fire with releases on Skunkrock, Argon, Phuturo and eventually, N2O. The N2O deal soured on the crew, and it was beginning to be harder to work in the studio as James relocated to Sacramento, Joaquin would move back to San Diego to begin his film directing career and Justin would start what is now known as one of the largest electronic groups right now, The Glitch Mob. This left James as the soul output for the Red Army moniker. While getting nibbles for releases from a few labels, 05-09, saw a hard time on DNB altogether. Labels were switching to digital formats and vinyl was becoming obsolete, folding a great deal of labels, including ones that were planning on new Red Army releases. These tunes still have never seen the light of day. In 2009, James got serious again about the production side of the music and slowly started to release again on Simplify Recordings and Onset Audio, two Seattle based labels who are solely responsible for getting his music back out on the dance floors. Flash forward to the present, Red Army is now being released on Turbine Music (both digitally and some soon to be vinyl releases), Ground Mass, Onset Audio (responsible for 7 of his current releases) and a slew of support from some of the scene's veterans and up and comer's like Bailey, Dexta, Maouq, Stunna, Spindall, Homemade Weapons, Clima, Interline, Gremlinz, Reza, to name a few.

In 1998 he moved to San Francisco where he has continued to dj and hone his talent to this day.

https://www.facebook.com/jamaldnb

Soundcloud:
https://soundcloud.com/jamaldnb


With global affiliations including Commercial Suicide (Klute), Code Recordings (Bachelors of Science), Project 51 (Gridlok), JAMAL is a name synonymous with drum & bass in San Francisco and beyond. Over a decade in the game has made him a cornerstone of the stateside drum & bass movement. From DJing around the world and producing memorable music, to throwing parties and establishing infamous crews like Compression SF and Stamina Sundays, Jamal continues to leave an indelible mark on the genre.

Jamal began honing his skills behind the decks in the late 90's, quickly becoming a crowd favorite in the burgeoning San Francisco Drum & Bass scene. Then only 19 years old, Jamal found himself rubbing shoulders with the drum & bass pioneers and future innovators. At the same time, Jamal was holding down simultaneous residencies with infamous crews like Compression and Phuturo, Juju’s label night - a position which exposed him to the most cutting edge artists and sounds. He's had his finger on the pulse of drum & bass music ever since.

Jamal delivers an undeniably infectious energy with each of his sets - a quality which has kept him in demand for years. Teeming with exclusive tunes and mixed with a level of finesse only achievable by a veteran, Jamal's DJ sets never fail to send dancefloors into a frenzy. This hard-earned reputation has seen him share the stage with drum & bass's finest including Andy C, Roni Size, Goldie, Calyx & Teebee, DJ SS, S.P.Y., Bryan Gee, Marky, LTJ Bukem, Friction, Dillinja...you get the idea. In the studio, Jamal has been making moves for years. The last 2 in particular have proven to be among the biggest yet, collaborating with drum & bass luminaries Gridlok ("Tusken Raider" - Commercial Suicide Records, 2012), and the Bachelors of Science ("Never Die" w/ BoS, Ben Soundscape, and Jo-S - Code Recordings, 2013), not to mention solo releases. With numerous singles slated for release and new collaboration projects in the works, it's clear JAMAL will continue to shape the drum & bass sound for years to come.

next Faultline - special SF edition - Sat Sept 19, 2015 with ShOOey and BENN BA$$



In the almost 2 years we have been doing Faultline it has always been in Oakland. We have talked about doing one in San Francisco & the time has finally come! We are very excited that we landed at UNDERGROUND SF.

Headlining the evening will be,

ShOOey - (SPACE COWBOYS)

ShOOey discovered her love for house music in the Chicago club scene in 1997 but it wasn't until she moved to San Francisco in 2003, where she learned the art of DJ'ing and the beauty of moving and shaping a dance floor. ShOOey is a prominent member of the SF-based Space Cowboys music collective, where you can hear her body-rocking breaks and house sets. With a massive following on the playa and beyond, ShOOey is known for the infectious energy that she brings to the dance floor!

BENNBA$$

BENNBA$$ began deejaying in 1996 during his time in Washington DC. Although initially influenced by West Coast breaks deejays like Simply Jeff, DJ Dan and Spun, it was the harder, techier sound of the DC scene that darkened things up a bit. It was this combined with hip hop envy that led him to the sound of electro. Not that stuff that was really just crummy house music but called electro back in 07’, but proper 808 cowbell – 505 handclap electro. Not realizing that technology had progressed into jockeying files rather than discs, BENNBA$$ is having his Rip Van Winkle moment, convinced of the impending Y2K Glitch and knowing that vinyl will again be relevant.

http://www.discogs.com/artist/376847-Submorphics


Submorphics (Greg Axelrad) has made his name with soul-drenched, deep, emotive, nostalgic yet forward-thinking music. Starting from the very bottom, Submorphics eventually rose through the ranks of the DnB scene, now releasing on only the top labels in the genre: Shogun Audio, Hospital, Liquid V, Innerground, Good Looking, Spearhead; etc.

Anthems such as "Summer Soul," "Organ Grinder (Calibre Remix)," "Higher Ground ft. T.R.A.C," "Burning Love (orig + Lenzman Remix)" and "Long Been Gone" have seen extensive play on BBC Radio 1 and clubs worldwide.

Drawing on eclectic influences from his formative years in Detroit and Chicago, Submorphics' sounds have been heavily supported by a who's-who's list of A-list DJs, yielding praise from both sides of the Atlantic.

Now based in San Francisco, Submorphics continues to relentlessly complete new music, always stepping up his game, while touring the US and Europe as much as possible. As a DJ, Submorphics sonically alloys disparate styles; the grimy and the smooth, the hypnotic and the astonishing.

2014 sees the release of the acclaimed "Burnside Park" EP on Liquid V, followed by a string of highly-anticipated releases on Friction's inimitable Shogun Audio and SGN:LTD imprints. Stay tuned for much more from Submorphics, a rare talent whose unique vision sets him apart as one of the genre's ones-to-watch for the future...

Chip “Mancub” Corwin is currently voted as a top ten dj of San Francisco.He has been blowing up the block party jams for over ten years. Mancub has a very diffinitive style of turntable tricks that have earned him slots beside some of the dance industry’s biggest headliners. His turntable antics are too numerous to mention but include scratching while wearing boxing gloves, he certainly knows how to work the crowd into a frenzy!!You can hear his mixes on the internet radio station pulseradio.net, netamp.com or djmancub.com. The netamp show is aired on the last Wednesday of the month or archived. Mancub also plays for the infamous playa posse The Spacecowboys, ripping up a rare storm on the mighty Unimog at numerous unforgettable party’s.

next event - Saturday, June 27, 2015 with Adam 12 and Micah J!


ADAM 12

Adam Parmelee AKA adam12 is a DJ and co-founding member of ReFreshed Fridaze, which boasts a bunch of DJs whom you're more likely to know (but too many to name, just trust us) among its stable of guests. Firmly rooted in the Campbell, CA underground, adam12 has made a career of rocking the airwaves of internet radio - holding down long-term residencies on nsb radio, breaksfm, and most recently nubreaks.

When not providing the soundtrack for the countless guests at the Campbell community center track, Adam can be sometimes found gracing the decks at big name local venues Johnny V's, the Back Bar (SoFA), and WXYZ lounge (Cupertino) playing along side heavy hitters Cise K, DJFM, Audio Dru, and if you're lucky, Joe Sexual. (He's actually more likely to be found on his couch playing Battlefield Hardline on xboxlive... gamertag = djadam12)

MICAH J

Micah J was the leading House & Breaks DJ in the Lake Tahoe area for over 14 years until his recent move to Sacramento. This move has opened new doors as he joined forces with breaks crew: For The Love Of Breaks, and rejuvenated an already stellar musical career.
In 1999 he started spinning hip hop, where he developed his “in your face” style of mixing and scratching. After an unfortunate accident in the summer of 2000 involving the sun and his entire record collection, micah j switched to House music, started collecting deep, obscure New School Breaks and never looked back. His love of Hip-Hop and Funk has brought him back to his roots for daytime sets and pool parties at festivals or wherever the sexy beats are needed.
Never having planned a set in his entire career has given him experience with reading the crowd and choosing the perfect track for every situation, making every set a new and exciting experience for the DJ and the dance floor.

next event: Friday March 6, 2015 with Gulf Gate Project!



FAULTLINE - a Breaks monthly, first Friday's of the month.

The Gulf Gate Project
Toast & Jam Recordings
soundcloud.com/thegulfgateproject


The Gulf Gate Project is electronic music production duo Scott and Sheldon Gau. Growing up in the Sarasota, FL area, the Gau brothers were influenced early on by the Florida breakbeat scene of the late 90's and early 2000's. In 2008, Scott and Sheldon began releasing tracks under the name The Gulf Gate Project on their own label, Toast & Jam Recordings. In 2010, Toast & Jam had a breakout hit with The Gulf Gate Project – Beezy (Electric Soulside Remix). With support from Crystal Method’s Cummunity Service radio show and BT’s Laptop Symphony radio show, 'Beezy' rocketed to #1 on the Beatport breaks chart for 6 weeks, earning it a top 10 nomination for breaks track of the year in 2011 as well as a Breakspoll nomination.

After several more top 20 breaks hits, The Gulf Gate Project relocated to the San Francisco bay area in June of 2013. Since moving to San Francisco last year, Scott and Sheldon have kicked production into high gear with several more top 20 releases, including their most recent release ‘Spanish Montana.’ ‘Spanish Montana’ went #1 on the Beatport Breaks Top 100 chart and held that position for 4 weeks. Supported by the likes of Crystal Method (Community Service Radio Show), Lady Waks, BreaksMafia, 8Ball,  and other breakbeat notables, ‘Spanish Montana’ has propelled The Gulf Gate project into the breakbeat limelight. The Gulf Gate Project is currently in the studio working on their next release, and supporting the studio work with their two man live show.
