This episode I Los Angeles based deeljay, producer, and legend Cole Medina. Cole Medina is internationally recognized for his entrancing dance music productions. Born and raised in Downey, CA, he played instruments and wrote music throughout his childhood. A background in jazz won him competitions, awards, and scholarships. In high school Cole was presented with the Bronze Viking Award, the school district’s highest award of achievement in art. His productions are heard on dance floors all over the globe in the most respected clubs and online broadcasts. Cole’s music is a sure favorite among noted underground DJ’s such as DJ Harvey, Prins Thomas, Todd Terje, Mark E, Juan Maclean, RubNTug, Alex From Tokyo, Foolish Felix, Ooft, and Rob Mellow, just to name a few heavy hitters.

Owner and founder of House Arrest, a unique label offering past and present releases still heavy in demand. From the instant house-classic “Buffalo Bill” to a more recent sold out Bee Gees remix on American Standard, Cole continues to deliver a sultry-edgy beat, there’s no mystery as to why Cole receives strong support from DJ peers and why his releases do so well…Working on his craft non-stop and forming relationships abroad, all the while remaining humble and open-minded. Cole Medina is guaranteed a successful future as he branches on his new label Licorice Delight as well as distinguished labels around the world.

dj ShmeeJay‘s Ain’t No Big Thing radio show, live on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month from 8pm – 10pm (PST) / 11pm – 1am (EST) on BoxFrequency.fm, and with a podcast syndicated on iTunes.

This episode I host Chicago, IL based deejay and producer Underdog Edits, also known as Leonard Part Sixx. Born and raised in Chicago, Underdog Edits has been a record collector since 12 years old, quoting: “I’ve always been fascinated with the power of music and its effect on the human spirit”. Leonard started Djing at age 15 and recalls he was fascinated by edits and mixes done by legendary Djs like Walter Gibbons, Tom Moulton, Jonathan Fearing, Francois K, Shep Pettibone, and others. Being heavily influenced by these legends have given him the understanding & the aural mechanics needed to start djing and doing his own re-edits. Leonard summarizes his philosophy this way: “A re-edit, when done correctly, can be a powerful way of reconnecting the listener to what they loved about the song, in the first place. My goal was to piece together the cosmic energies of these classic and rare rhythm and grooves and make them my own personal statements to the dancer and the dancefloor.”

But Leonard ‘s talents did not stop at re-editing or running one of the best underground Disco labels in the game. Leonard is also an established recording and mixing engineer. His sense for music and his engineering skills finally came together in 2005 when Leonard became Terry Hunter’s personal engineer. Since then, Leonard has worked for Kenny Dope, Ron Trent, Ron Carroll, and various artists & labels worldwide. His Underdog Edits has been on the playlists of dj’s all over the world. His monthly residency with Ron Trent’s City Beat parties has been introducing a new generation to his groove. And he was recently selected as Music Director of Chicago’s new music mecca, The Shrine Nightclub, forging a new era in music and nightlife. So, though Leonard  may be considered an Underdog, he is rising from the shadows of Disco and is becoming a up-and-coming player in the world of Dance Music.

Look for more of Underdog Edits on SoundCloud, BandCampFacebook, SongKick, Twitter, and Discogs.
