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.

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.
According to Juno, JB Dizzy is a newbie to the scene, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Just think of him as an old soul that got lost on the way back to the Disco. Dave Backes AKA JB Dizzy got his start DJing in the golden era of Hawaii’s underground house music scene in the mid to late 90’s, and quickly became a regular selector on its circuit.

Moving back to the mainland just before the DJ boom, Dave took many years off (aside from many guest appearances when he traveled back home to Hawaii) until 2012 when he teamed up with North Florida’s Garage crew, a group of artists who shared the same passion for rooted house music, disco, funk and global soul. The Garage quickly gained notoriety for its underground flavor and true-skool vibes.

In 2015, JB Dizzy signed to Discoalition Records out of France and released two tracks, gaining the attention of some of Nudisco’s respected DJs around the globe such as Fingerman, dj ShmeeJay, Evil Smarty, Rafael Cancian, Tonbe, Goby and many more. Tonbe’s Disco Fruit imprint was the next stop for the sophomore effort and JB’s Midnight Power EP fared well, with its title track appearing on Disco Fruit Selections Vol. 4 (subsequently assisting the LP to gain to the 3rd position on Juno’s NuDisco Album chart).

Taking a long break from the edits/reworks, Dave joined back with the Garage Party founders Ancient Deep (whom have been holding their own over at Open Bar Music, Intimate Venues Recordings and Soul Clap Records) to form Immers Music, and is due for another EP with Immers at the end of the year.

Beyond the busy year and “re-awakening” if you will, JB Dizzy is also a reoccurring DJ guest with Orlando’s Crosstown Sounds monthly party and has forthcoming remixes coming out in the future on their newly established Xtowns label.

Look for JB Dizzy on SoundCloud, Twitter, and Facebook.

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.
