TYREE COOPER If you don't know the name by now, it's time for a history lesson: Tyree grew up on the south side of Chicago jacking to the sounds of FARLEY JACKMASTER FUNK, the Hot Mix 5, RON HARDY, and the electrifying energy of FRANKIE KNUCKLES. His first release "I FEAR THE NIGHT" instantly became a Chicago underground classics. Monster tracks like "ACID CRASH," and "ACID OVER" followed. Collaborating with artists like FAST EDDIE and JOE SMOOTH on the classic Chicago-based labels DJ International and Dance Mania on tracks like "TURN UP THE BASS", "LET'S GET HYPE", and "LET THE MUSIC TAKE CONTROL" in the late 80s and early 90s, Tyree defined the hip-house phenomenon during house music's formative years. Currently residing in Berlin, Tyree keeps up a non-stop releasing schedule, putting out slamming wax on Clone, We Play House and a number of other underground labels, including his 2010 release "NOTHING WRONG" on Mojuba, which got massive club rotation from a huge roster of DJ's as diverse Ben Klock, Oliver Deutschmann and Jaques Renault. He's also lent his unique vocal talents to an array of contemporary tracks, including Tom Trago's 2012 Rush Hour banger "WHAT YOU DO". Tyree currently plays a monthly residency in Berlin called Jack The Box at the indoor/outdoor club KaterHolzig and regularly detonates club dates all across Europe.
VIN SOL & 5KINANDBONE5 VIN SOL is a drum machine-hoarding vinyl-gripping dance music otaku with a dangerously sharp pair of sunglasses. He's also the head of his own new-minted hard-jacking label, Soo Wavey. Research suggests 5KIN is a VR construct being streamed from a remote server in Zimbabwe at a 9 hour time lag from its original reception by a galactic antenna composed of broken body parts from failed cyborgs and discarded Coke cans. Between the two of 'em they've dropped tracks on Fool's Gold, Unknown to the Unknown, Grizzly, Soo Wavey and a boatload of others underground labels. Check out their brand new 2 player co-op takeover of FCL's burner acappella recast of IT'S YOU: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjiAoCZgMLo
DJ DEDAN Considered by many to be one of the key figures in Oakland's GOLDEN ERA OF HOUSE MUSIC alongside names like David Harness, Beni B and Julius Papp, DJ Dedan has been a force in the Oakland scene since the early 90's. Dedan's party was the first Oakland house party that really spoke to the youth and the hip-hop generation. Dedan became known for mixing hip-hop into house music, which created a space for hip-hop and house culture to meet. Dedan is probably best known to most people for his dedication-inspiring party Brothers and Sisters with DJ Daniela, which ran from 2004 to 2009. The party took a hiatus after operating for almost 5 years straight and was revived in 2011 with a new line-up of Dj Dedan & Dj Emancipacion.
