Steef_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 9pm – 11pm (GMT) / 4pm – 6pm (EST) / 1pm – 3pm (PST) on BoxFrequency.fm.

This week I have the pleasure of hosting a guest mix from the mighty Fred Berthet aka dj Steef. dj Steef is a Marseilles, France based producer known for making slow & funky downtempo house tracks. dj Steef started out working with Biomix (organizer of “Electronic Territories” Festival, later known as “Seconde Nature”), and after composing singles with Antoine Boullé under the pseudonym Venus Attack Project (on the label US Guidance), he created the band known as Troublemakers with his friend Lionel Corsini & Arnaud Taillefert. After an over-welcomed first LP (“Doubts & Convictions” on Guidance Recordings) and well received worldwide, Concecration came on the second one on Blue Note (“Express Way”) pushing The Troublemakers at one of the top electronic band in the French scene.

Fred later on focused his attention on Copyshop project, influenced by the 80’s (Gomma, Toy Tonics, La Dame Noir, Numoment…). Producing now under dj Steef its was the occasion to synthesize his musical roots such as 80’s electro pop, poisonous disco, classy french influences, insistent downtempo and up warding house. Fred has found in his alter ego dj Steef the perfect combination of incredible fat, slow, funky downtempo house tracks that every body is so crazy about. As Gomma label boss says on him its not about fashion but clearly about style & that’s why we all love his production stamped Biomix, in the shadows, under cover & simply outstanding.

djShmeeJay_GrooveSkool - Sergio

LIVE every Sunday from 10pm – Midnight (GMT) / 5pm – 7pm (EST) / 2pm – 4pm (PST) on GrooveSkool Radio www.gsrs24.com.  GrooveSkool Sunday starts 2 hours earlier with Fingerman, so make sure you tune in early.

This week I hosted a guest mix from San Farncisco based dj Sergio Fedasz.

Born & raised in the East Bay, and having moved to San Francisco in 2001, Sergio is proud of the San Francisco Bay Area’s rich dance music past and especially focuses on keeping our City’s traditions & history alive. His DJing style draws inspiration from legendary Chicago DJ & producer Derrick Carter, San Francisco legend and party partner Steve Fabus, and the one & only Larry Levan. Especially after reading “Last Night A DJ Saved My Life” in 2000, his ‘musical vision’ has crystallized into wanting to present the spectrum of dance music – disco, house, funk, jazz, boogie and more – while preserving & paying respect to the vibe of the legendary clubs of Disco’s Golden Age. He strives to keep the proud tradition of the DJ “speaking to the dancer” alive – through the music, lights, and other atmospheric elements of the dancefloor & club.

In 2005, he was chosen as the New Times (SF Weekly/East Bay Express) “DJ Breakthrough” and was invited to play at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami during the Winter Music Conference. In 2006, he was awarded the title of the SF Weekly’s 2006 Music Awards “Best DJ.” Most recently, he was voted BEST DJ in SF Weekly’s 2010 Reader’s Poll! He was also very honored to be invited to represent Go BANG! at the 2011 & 2012 San Francisco Pride festivities, and to DJ at their VIP party in the rotunda of City Hall. He has also recently been able to play at historied San Francisco locations including the Galleria at the San Francisco Design Center & at deYoung Museum.

To find out more about Sergio, check him out on his webage,  SoundCloud and on KALX.
