A revelatory manifestation of a divine being.
1. A sudden manifestation of the essence or meaning of something.
2. A comprehension or perception of reality by means of a sudden intuitive realization: I experienced an epiphany, a spiritual flash that would change the way I viewed myself (Frank Maier)
KEITH MACKENZIE - Chicago/Tampa
Having earned a reputation for workin the bassbins proper w/ his upfront selection of breakbeat pressure, Keith MacK has solidified himself as a cornerstone in the US breaks movement. Being apart of DJ Icey's legendary Zone Records and an original member of Afterdark Records, as well as recently starting his own imprint..illeven:eleven, Keith continues to push forward w/ his cutting-edge sound, while at the same time providing a positive vibe towards the dance scene. His releases include collaborations w/ artists such as infiniti, dj fixx, and brian van dalen have made him not only a dancefloor favorite, but also popular w/ breaks dj's worldwide.
Beet & Bad Lieutenant > Live PA w/ Live Percussion
(Zeropoint Records//Parcel Mgmt.//UpliftAM - Chicago & Cincinnati)
We all know who they are and we all know that they rock the stage each and every time. So, do they really need an introduction?
Devine & emilyPLAY> Live PA
(BreaksCollective//UpliftAM - Miami)
Creating quite a stir in the Miami music scene ever since relocating to the area from Orlando in the early fall of 2004. Their live PA show consists of Devine programming live keys and triggering samples live while emilyPLAY> sings and also plays live
keys. The duo brings their entire studio to the stage using multiple synth modules, vocal effects, MIDI controllers and the live performance software program, Ableton Live. Their sound is undeniably breakbeat with a dose of progressive electro bass interspersed with melodic vocal hooks and catchy trance inspired synth lines.
FRIENDS IN STEREO feat. Orange Peel Moses
(www.friendsinstereo.com - Denver, CO)
Much more than just DJs, Friends in Stereo takes traditional deejaying a step further by incorporating live instrumentation, real-time effects and live vocals into a style that can be described as groovy performance art. Friends Colin Chapman, Reggie Lafaye and vocalist Orange Peel Moses have each played an integral part in the Denver dance-music scene's development and maturation for more than a decade, and while it's recently become fashionable to abandon pure electronic music in favor of dance rock like LCD Soundsystem, Friends in Stereo has remained true to its roots and to pure electronic music. With sharp breakbeats, electro riffs and Orange Peel's vocals in the mix, the collective just may be the best thing to happen to Denver dance music since the advent of turntables. -Westword
We are all...Friends in Stereo.
Sterling and James
(orijjinn//esoteric gen//UpliftAM - Fayatteville, AR/Tulsa, OK) Psychedelic House/Breaks (Live Percussion)
As Orijjinn's Resident Boom Technician, Jason Sterling has over 15 years of experience as a DJ and Sound Designer. His sound systems have been the heartbeat of many clubs and events throughout the South and Midwest. As a DJ, Sterling's outstanding mixing skills and shape shifting style have made him a staple and well-respected name on dance floors from coast to coast.
Derek James is one of the Midwests finest multi-talented musicians and DJ. After years of playing with bands in the Tulsa scene, Derek found his love for electronic music while experimenting with instruments alongside some of his friends who were DJs. This inspired Derek to not only become a DJ himself but produce his own tracks as well. As a team, Sterling and James are known for their versatile sounds of gritty house and breaks layered in obscure tribal rhythms. Be prepared for tribal mayhem as Sterling and James make their debut appearance in Indy.
