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 good man, ATL to Seattle transplant, Mark Lippert. Mark’s musical journey started with two 15’s in the back of his ’78 Corolla and has pretty much gone down hill since then. Hailing from the lazy left-coast of Florida, Mark started DJing in Atlanta 15+ years ago, and now resides in Seattle.

His primary focus is that he has no focus. All the manifestations of house are game: from slo-mo disco-infused jams to tripped-out techno and everything else in between. Being part of both the Atlanta-based Warm Art music collective and a resident with Cardio has allowed him to play with several of his music idols, like Charles Webster and Morgan Geist; as well as stalwarts like Alexi Delano, Franklin de Costa, and Ame. Plus disco-house stars Psychemagik and Eddie C, and up-and-comers like Trus’Me and Soul Clap.

In essence, Mark enjoys doing things with people who enjoy doing things with people in places where music can be enjoyed with those people.

Look for Mark Lippert on SoundCloud, Facebook, ResidentAdvisor, Twitter, HearThis.at, and MixCloud.
