djShmeeJay_Baby It's Cold Outside 1

As a little treat to close out the year my friend Akis, aka VinylAddicted, and I have pulled together another collaborative project. It’s a two hour journey into Akis’ wonderful vinyl collection as well as some fantastic music that I’ve picked up during the year.  This set was first presented on my radio show on GrooveSkool Radio on Sunday 12/22, where you can catch me live every Sunday from 10pm (gmt) / 5pm (est) / 2pm (pst), often along with a guest mix from one of my favorite taste makers.

VinylAddicted is, among many other things, the curator of you the  Editor’s Kutz series of releases. You are going to want to keep your eyes peeled for the third installment, set to be released on vinyl during January 2014. Also, you can find more of VinylAddicted on Facebook and Twitter as well as his blog JustLoveVinyls.Blogspot.com. Most importantly, let’s get to the music.

djShmeeJay_GrooveSkool - Sergio

LIVE every Sunday from 10pm – Midnight (GMT) / 5pm – 7pm (EST) / 2pm – 4pm (PST) on GrooveSkool Radio www.gsrs24.com.  GrooveSkool Sunday starts 2 hours earlier with Fingerman, so make sure you tune in early.

This week I hosted a guest mix from San Farncisco based dj Sergio Fedasz.

Born & raised in the East Bay, and having moved to San Francisco in 2001, Sergio is proud of the San Francisco Bay Area’s rich dance music past and especially focuses on keeping our City’s traditions & history alive. His DJing style draws inspiration from legendary Chicago DJ & producer Derrick Carter, San Francisco legend and party partner Steve Fabus, and the one & only Larry Levan. Especially after reading “Last Night A DJ Saved My Life” in 2000, his ‘musical vision’ has crystallized into wanting to present the spectrum of dance music – disco, house, funk, jazz, boogie and more – while preserving & paying respect to the vibe of the legendary clubs of Disco’s Golden Age. He strives to keep the proud tradition of the DJ “speaking to the dancer” alive – through the music, lights, and other atmospheric elements of the dancefloor & club.

In 2005, he was chosen as the New Times (SF Weekly/East Bay Express) “DJ Breakthrough” and was invited to play at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami during the Winter Music Conference. In 2006, he was awarded the title of the SF Weekly’s 2006 Music Awards “Best DJ.” Most recently, he was voted BEST DJ in SF Weekly’s 2010 Reader’s Poll! He was also very honored to be invited to represent Go BANG! at the 2011 & 2012 San Francisco Pride festivities, and to DJ at their VIP party in the rotunda of City Hall. He has also recently been able to play at historied San Francisco locations including the Galleria at the San Francisco Design Center & at deYoung Museum.

To find out more about Sergio, check him out on his webage,  SoundCloud and on KALX.

To find out more about Sergio’s Go Bang! project, check it out on Facebook  and on SoundCloud.

Information about Sergio’s SyntheTigers project is available on Facebook and SoundCloud.
