jkriv_ain't no big thing-freq2

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 Brooklyn-based producer, DJ, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and label-owner JKriv.

With a professional musical career stretching nearly 2 decades, J has gained serious attention recently for his masterfully crafted disco reworks, original productions, and rousing DJ sets. A Traxsource Top-20 Nu Disco / Indie Danceartist for the past 2 years, his tracks have been played by DJs such as Derrick Carter, Andrew Weatherall, Louie Vega, Kenny Dope, Mark Farina, Greg Wilson, and have gained mainstream support from Drake and Majid Jordan in their Apple Music OVO Radio show, as well as legendary BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong. Bringing a seasoned musicality to everything he touches, JKriv’s talent for stripped-down organic production and songwriting is evident in his original songs Another Night, Make It Hotand Redo, and many of his re-edits have reached modern-classic status. With releases on Disco Deviance, Mareh’s Barefoot Beats label, Secret Squirrels, Whiskey Disco and his own Razor-N-Tape among others, J has solidified his status as a master of the modern edit/rework, and has been called on to remix numerous artists such as Dimitri from Paris, Imagination, Escort and more.Like his productions, JKriv’s DJ sets also showcase his deep and diverse taste, weaving eclectic disco, house, and offbeat selections together seamlessly, always with an ear for groove and harmony, and an eye to the dance floor. In addition to regular nights at hometown hot spots Black Flamingo, Le Bain, Good Room, and Elsewhere, J has performed and DJ’d in over 30 countries and nearly every state in the continental US, sharing bills with Todd Terje, Session Victim, Joey Negro, and many more.

JKriv’s talents as a taste maker extend beyond the studio and DJ booth. He’s a founding member of the live disco band Escort, co-writing/producing and touring with the group. And as co-owner of respected Brooklyn record label Razor-N-Tape. RNT now boasts a 50 release-deep catalog that has garnered support and spins from some of the biggest names in modern dance music, and is one of the most respected and consistent new disco labels in the game today. With remixes coming on Soundway and Z Records, a mini-album of Brazilian reworks on Razor-N-Tape for Record Store Day, international tours and a performance at the Sasquatch Festival with Escort all within the first half of the year, 2018 is already certain to be huge for JKriv.

Look for more of JKriv on SoundCloud, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And of course you must familiarize yourself with Razor-N-Tape.

Martin Hayes_Ain't No Big Thing-Freq2

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.

This episode i host Leipzig, Germany based producer and deejay Martin Hayes. Martin founded, along with fellas LuvLess, M.ono, Lars and Eva, imprint label called Rose Records. As an “Hymne à l’Amour” from slow mid – range house tempo, the label and its artists quickly gained recognition for pushing boundaries of disco & house to a global message where everything is made out of love and where “La Vie en rose” sits atop their arts and become a vision toward their music. Believing in slower music, like soul and disco tracks mixed with the house music, Martin plays a mixture of house & disco in all its aspects, forming a perfect balance on the dance floor. A tireless vinyl collector from soul, funk, hip hop, house music and disco, his releases reveals the true character of a bottomless skilled producer with records signed to Lazare Hoche Edits, Razor-N-Tape Reserve, Editorial, Pantha Rhei as of course his home base Rose Records.

Look for Martin Hayes on SoundCloud and Facebook as well as Rose Record’s Facebook page.
