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.

This episode I host German deejay Martin Welzer, commonly known as dj Friction. Martin was born in 1970 near Stuttgart in Southwest Germany and began mixing and collecting Records in 1985. After competing in various deejay battles (such as the DMC German Championships 1991) he had his first residency in a Club in Stuttgart in 1991. Troughout the 90’s he was mostly known as a Hip Hop deejay and as a member of chart topping Hip Hop Band Freundeskreis. With Freundeskreis he released 2 Studio Albums (incl. the Gold Selling “Esperanto” LP), 1 Live Album and a Best Of Album (FK 10 in 2007). He later released 3 Solo Albums, made countless Remixes (for the likes of The Jackson 5, Das EFX, The Pharcyde, Die Fantastischen Vier, Malente just to name a few) and his current projects include Motor Mouth with Philip König and Bodymovin with DJ Thomilla. Nowadays he’s mostly into Nu-Disco, House, Electro- + Discofunk. As a kid growing up in the 70s and 80s his influences are Discofunk, Electrofunk, Boogie, Soul, Italo Disco, Hip Hop and House.

Fiervo_Ain't No Big Thing-Freq

 

 

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 Brazilian dj Fiervo.

“You may find dj Fiervo, aka Fernando Iervolino, spinning some disco and house records at undergrounds clubs in Sao Paulo, Brazil, like legendary D-Edge or at big festivals like Creamfields and Rock In Rio. But maybe Fiervo’s favorite dancefloor is a beach. His love for balearic music comes from a long time, since his trips around Brazil’s coast, full of good music and abundant sun. This passion for laid back vibes resulted on a project called Sunny Disco, a series of occasional day parties and special mixes. This recording for Ain’t No Big Thing is a small sample of what Fiervo usually plays. Expect a mix of classic tunes, new stuff and edits, all packed in shapes of disco, downtempo, balearic, house and Brazilian pearls… Underwater synths, slow beats, sun kissed sax, lazy pianos, trippy pads, a lot of melody.

Now go grab your favorite colorful drink and get a tan!”

To stay up to date on what Fiervo is doing please look for him on SoundCloudTwitter, MixCloud, and his webpage.
