More Info for GRUM




If you've been to any bar, club, or underground playing indie-dance/electro in the last 2 years, chances are you've danced to a single or remix by GRUM.

Graeme Shepherd, better known by his stage name Grum, is an electronic musician from the United Kingdom. Grum's debut album, Heartbeats, was released in May 2010. A confident debut record[1], inspired by 1980s disco, it has been compared to Daft Punk's Discovery and Mylo's Destroy Rock & Roll. The song Turn It Up was picked as single of the week by iTunes & was available for free download from the iTunes store.
Grum's first two music videos from Heartbeats, Can't Shake This Feeling and Through The Night were shot in Los Angeles, CA and directed by The General Assembly.

Charlie Rock in tha House!


TAKEN FROM CITY BEAT

DJ Charlie Rock on how he came up

Back in the days, people had to figure things out for themselves

By Kinsee Morlan


DJ Charlie Rock

The Music:
Jazz is No. 1 on Rock’s list. He throws in funk and hip-hop and sneaks the jazz in by playing its funkier, more club-friendly cousin, acid jazz.

The Scene: Rock just scored a new night at El Dorado. It’s called Soul Flexin, and he and DJ Grandmasta Rats take over El D the fourth Friday of every month. “Soul Flexin is a night for the people that respect the art of moving butts,” Rock says.

The Story: Sitting down to talk with Rock is like sitting down with an unofficial hip-hop historian. The dancer and DJ has been at it since 1976, and he remembers a time when it was all about figuring things out for yourself.

“In the beginning,” he says, “I didn’t even know it was DJing. When I first heard a mix on a tape, I was like, ‘How did they do that?’ Me and my friend used to just grab our boom-boxes, and I would put it on pause and I’d switch to a different radio station. Then I’d record some Spanish or something. Then I’d push pause, and I’d find the Art of Noise beat-boxing show on the radio, and I’d record some of that. So, throughout the whole tape, I’d record bits and pieces of stuff, and then me and my friend would share and kind of battle, like, who had the better tape." FULL ARTICLE

Saul Q has been the biggest promoter in San Diego thus far in 2010. He has taken partying back to the basics:
-Local Artists
-Party Music
-Great drinks

Join Saul Q with special guest DJ Chris Cutz this Friday for a night of the best in Old School Jams! Here is more on DJ Chris Cutz:

Growing up grooving to all the greats of 70s, 80s and 90s music, Chris turned to DJ-ing as a way to pay homage to the genre of music that he loves so much: Hip Hop. Fast forward to the present, he’s now a musical force to be recognized and reckoned with. When he’s on the clock his sets flow effortlessly between Hip Hop, Funk, Soul, House and Electro and the dance floor is packed until the house lights switch on. For 8 years Chris Cutz has been one of San Diego’s most sought after DJs. He’s the go-to guy for nearly every celebrity party that’s come into America’s Finest City and has entertained big names like: Beyonce, Kanye West, John Legend, Estelle, Jamie Foxx, Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton.

Promoters and venues know that his name on a flyer equals big numbers through the door… And club-goers know that if he’s behind the decks, they’re in for a party rockin’ good time. His ingenious mixes, uncanny knack of choosing the right song at the right time and mind-boggling turntablist skills are what sets him above other DJs. He’s not just a club DJ playing for the girls and the hosted bar tab—he’s an artist, a student of Hip Hop and a practitioner of his musical craft. As a professional, he’s shared the stage with Z-Trip, AM, Mix Master Mike, DJ Riz of the Crooklyn Clan, Samantha Ronson and DJ Vice. And he’s also opened for big name acts like the Pharcyde, Blacksheep, People Under The Stairs, Mickey Avalon and Pittsburgh Slim.

The Biggest DJ Ever at El Dorado?



FRIDAY APRIL 23RD

ADAM SALTER & SAUL Q
BRING YOU A SPECIAL EVENT

********SINDEN*********
(United Kingdom)
http://www.myspace.com/graemesinden


Straddling a bass heavy club sound that also encompasses leftfield rock music and global beats, Sinden is renowned for his genre-blending DJ sets, cracklin’ hot radio show, his banging remixes, and for being the Sinden in hotly tipped ‘The Count & Sinden’ and, alongside Herve.

His DJ career sees him criss-crossing the globe turning clubs on their heads with his fresh, eclectic sound, and throwing Count & Sinden’s Mega Warehouse parties in the UK. He had recently begun a column in the UK’s DJ magazine, and he’s also known for his lauded show groundbreaking UK radio station Kiss FM. Sinden’s show on Kiss was the first of its kind to host an eclectic selection of music that includes Funk Carioca, Baltimore Club, Kuduro, Juke House, Southern Hip Hop, Dancehall, House/Electro and much much more.

Having the radio show and the column keeps Sinden one step ahead of the game when it comes to finding new music, and he brings this taste-making approach to his productions. Sinden began making his own music around the time he forged a friendship with Dave “Switch” Taylor and was taken under his wing to learn the production game. Together they began to create progressive hip-hop, dancehall beats and other unclassifiable rhythms. Testing the water with his remixes of other artists has led to an impressive, diverse reel which includes mixes of Miike Snow, Jack Splash, Robbie Williams, Basement Jaxx, Bjork, Mujava, Armand van Helden and Mark Ronson, to name a few.

His production technique has further evolved in his collaboration with Joshua Harvey, aka The Count (aka Herve), on their project The Count & Sinden. Their single ‘Beeper’ was a crossover club smash which built on the success of early release ‘Tambourzouda’. Subsequent singles Hardcore Girls and Mega have been topped charts and been supported by a who’s who of top international DJs and producers. The Count and Sinden album is due out mid 2010 and features exciting vocals from a number of exciting guests.

Sinden has also announced the launch of his own label, Grizzly, which will feature more of the amazing sounds we’ve come to expect from him. First releases in Spring 2010 include a collaboration with SBTRKT, a new EP from Brodinski, and a WAFA, a solo project from the drummer in Basement Jaxx. Stay tuned!
