Samo Sound Boy, Jim-E Stack, DJ Funeral
-SAMO SOUND BOY-
Samo Sound Boy is a Los Angeles based producer and DJ whose powerful live sets and original productions have brought him to the forefront of today's forward-minded club scene. Having earned his chops DJing at Fugees 99, a Nigerian-owned dancehall in the south end of Buenos Aires, Samo compounded influences picked up there with a love of crunk, club, and Chicago house. The result remains a uniquely rugged but soulful sound of his own. In addition to having released an array of highly acclaimed remixes and original material, Samo started his own label, Body High, with Jerome Potter in 2011. Furthermore, the two partnered together to produce a side project under the name DJ Dodger Stadium. Moving full speed ahead as a producer, DJ, and label head, Samo is only getting started spreading his club aesthetic that Chicago journalist Dave Quam described as: "Weird, banging, and beautiful. Like a shortwave radio recording of all the best stations at once.
San Francisco born, New Orleans living, DJ/producer Jim-E Stack is young and doing his thing. Drawing influence anywhere from UK funky to Mexico’s 3ball, and house to pop, he strives to create his own eclectic brand of club music. Born James Stack, Jim-E Stack grew up in San Francisco, eating burritos, drinking 40s, and playing drums in a string of terrible punk bands. A new found interest in club music and the World Wide Web would bring him into a new class of young producers as infatuated by musical internet exploration, as they are with pushing the sounds of today’s club music.
