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 San Francisco based deejay and producer The Beat Broker. The Beat Broker was born in 1975 and raised in Southern California. His earliest musical influences include radio synth pop and soon after, mid-80s hip-hop by such artists as Eric B. & Rakim and EPMD. It’s these production styles of sampling, updating and remixing that would later become a huge influence on his own work.

Working at the local college radio station in the late 90s launched the next chapter of his musical interests. The vast music library opened the door to a variety of electronic music and led to the late-night experimental soundscape show called ‘WIRETAP’ which became the first step into DJing and studio time. With production partner Ryan Fitzgerald, the two decided to record their sessions and eventually have a studio of their own. They later became Broker/Dealer and have released music on labels such as Asphodel, Spectral, Traum and Sentrall.

The Beat Broker began DJing outside of the bedroom in 2001 playing everything from German minimal techno to classic 80s electro to italo disco. As part of Broker/Dealer, the duo created a monthly/weekly party in San Francisco called ‘POP’, which in its 5 years, had hosted many popular acts ranging from Erland Oye, Brennan Green and Tako/Loud-E. To create just the right mood, the Beat Broker began to make edits, remixes and even original tracks to mix into the night. From slower “cosmic” music for the beginning of the night to up-tempo synthesizer based crowd pleasers for the peak hours. These productions later became completed works and have been released on labels such as Bear Funk, Flexx, Disques Sinthomme, Ghost Town, Adult Contemporary and Sentrall. In the past few years the Broker has been up late working in his office producing and remixing for Eskimo, Is It Balearic?, Rebirth, Emerald & Doreen, Voltaire and Internasjonal to name a few. While continuing to make remixes and original tracks, the Beat Broker is constantly attempting to fuse old sounds with new ideas and create something for the crowd as well as the listener.

Look for more of The Beat Broker on his website, SoundCloud, Twitter, Facebook, and BandCamp. And of course you must familiarize yourself with Dream Chimney, a music blog and podcast series curated by The Beat Broker.

The Beat Broker’s set is his little secret, but if you ask nicely maybe he will tell you.

This episode I host Bad Barbie. Bad Barbie burst on to the scene playing her unique style, a special blend of Disco re-edits, Funk, House and Reggae. She quickly established herself on the music scene and is now widely regarded as the First Lady of Nu-Disco and The Queen of Re-edits. She really is a star performer in promoting the world of retro re-edits & bootlegs , which is currently bubbling away in the u.k. underground. Known for her Bad Barbie Radio Show on Kane FM where her love of music and lively personality really get a chance to shine. Her love of music and energetic personality are infectious as she always champions new, up and coming artists, this is her niche finding great new music that keeps the Bad Barbie Army listening every week. This energy translates well into her live gigs from clubs to bars to festivals her fantastic selection is guaranteed to pack the dance floor and keep it that way. Recently Bad Barbie has teamed up with co-producer Evil Smarty to create a string of re-edits currently riding high in the Juno chart. Their work has caught the attention of fans and peers alike, including the likes of Greg Wilson who commissioned an exclusive remix of their number one hit “Get It”. With many more releases planned this woman is one to watch.
