Estephe_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 Geneva, Switzerland based dj Estèphe. Estèphe and I have been chatting music online for quite a while now, and him pushing out a mix I made several years ago is a big reason how I started to get traction and eventual the offer to host my own radio show. Hence I consider Estèphe a bit of an unsung hero that I am especially excited to have him the show.

Look for Estèphe on MixCloud and Facebook.

Estèphe‘s set is his little secret.

Osmose_Ain't No Big Thing-Freq1

dj ShmeeJay‘s Ain’t No Big Thing radio show, live on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month from 8pm – 11pm (GMT) / 3pm – 6pm (EST) / Noon – 3pm (PST) on BoxFrequency.fm.

This episode I host Atlanta, GA based dj Osmose.

Osmose is all vinyl, all the time turntablist flare with dance floor sensibility. Osmose has worked in the studio and/or nightclub with artists as diverse as Grandmaster Flash, Sleazy McQueen, Ursula 1000, Nicola Conta, Thunderball, Ramadanman, Moldy, CaZ, Mayhem, Boozoo Bajou, Boo Williams, Kai Alce, Paul Rogers, Mykal Rose, Collie Buddz, The Aggrolites, Dubconscious and The Wailers (both versions of the group). Osmose plays a variety of styles from Disco, Funk, Soul, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Deep House, to Nudisco & more, but always keeps it analog! With over 17 years experience behind the decks Osmose now spends most of his time touring North and South America with lots of records.

As of 2011 Osmose launched Smokecloud Records, a vinyl only label that is mastered and pressed in the USA.  The label focuses on the slower side of soul & funk based dance music, but sprinkles in a few dance floor burners.  The label is geared towards DJ’s that play a diverse array of venues. Outside of vinyl releases on Smokecloud records, he also has vinyl out on the France based Whiskey Disco imprint and Canada’s Friendly Monster records with forthcoming tracks on the Toronto based Long Weekend RecordsHoney Disco  and a remix on the boogie and beatdown imprint Rotating Souls! Records.

If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, be sure to catch Osmose live at the following gigs in October:
Friday, October 17 at Anza Club in Vancouver, BC
Saturday, October 17 at The Copper Owl in Victoria, BC

More from Osmose at Twitter, Instagram and Discogs.

And now, to the boogie business.
