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 show I host Nelson, British Columbia based deejay, producer, and rabblerouser The SugarBear. Robert E. Livingood, also known as The SugarBear, was made in Detroit in the 1970s. Soul music and rebellious Rock & Roll were everywhere. Back then even the lullabies were sung to the tune of Barry White and the MC5 so his ear was trained accordingly. His mother was an opera singer who ended up working in an auto factory, his sister was the token white girl in a disco band, and his brother in law partied heavily with Iggy. By age 10, he had already seen KISS on their Destroyer tour and was a member of The Midnight Funk Association, presided over by legendary Detroit DJ, The Electrifying Mojo. As a teenager he started promoting music at the 404 Willis, an infamous underground after hours collective space in Detroit’s rough and radical Cass Corridor neighborhood. Robert also ran the Hopscotch record label and watched techno being born from the filthy kitchen window of the Majestic Theater where he passed falafels and hummus to hungry first wave ravers. He left Detroit in the 90s, lived on the west coast (San Francisco, Oakland, Olympia), fell in love with the wild, became a Grizzly Bear biologist, moved to Alaska, built a cabin, hunted and gathered, started writing books, then began throwing parties in the land of the midnight sun. Though he gave up science to become a full time writer and sound artist, he still spends considerable time every year in close proximity to grizzlies. When he returns from these far out landscapes he plays dance music. His favorite parties are set in unorthodox places–barns, basements, garages, riverbanks, and on isolated patches of tundra. He loves taking part in moments where something spontaneous and unexpected occurs–like re-claiming a busy intersection with a renegade sound system, then getting down in the middle of the street with a bunch of glitter splattered freaks during rush hour. Following in the footsteps of Mojo, the music he spins is unbound by style or era. He loves playing long sets (five hours in he’s just getting started) where he can explore the territories of soul, funk, jazz, psychedelia, house, new wave, punk, garage rock, experimental, hip hop, and disco. He’ll play where he’s called–whether international music festivals like Shambhala, Basscoast, and Burning Man, or even at a yard sale on the side of the highway where Mojitos are served in Mason jars. In addition to all of this, The SugarBear produces dance music, as well as analog, electronic neo-psychedelic soundscapes under the name Divination and Strategy.

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.
