Special Guest Party Shark Sundays July 15: DJ Rashka!

July 12th, 2012 | Events, People | 0 Comments

We got another episode of Party Shark Sundays rolling through July 15. DBO and artistIQ will be on deck (no pun intended), and we have a very special guest DJ Rashka! @rashkadj

Born and raised in Denver’s Capital Hill area, DJ Rashka has been in the music scene for a minute and a half. DJ’ing has been a big part of his musical career digging up what he could and still what he still can residing near those places we call record shops; yes, there are a few left near Capital Hill.

Highly influenced by his father, who is a local musician, DJ Rashka was introduced to a wide variety of music and styles early on. Near age 15, Rashka took to the turn tables and was hooked instantly. He has been busy cultivating his love for spinning ever since, exploring a wide range of genres and mixing technics and taking DJ’ing to the next level to entertain the listeners and experience a way to enjoy life.

His current side projects are:

  • back-up for S.T.O.I.C. (local Denver Hip Hip group)
  • 3Two

We are proud to have him as our special guest DJ this Sunday July 15!

Special guest: DJ Sounds Supreme Sunday June 17

June 13th, 2012 | Broadcast, Events, People | 0 Comments

Our long term friend and one of the best DJ’s we know will be gracing our studio this Sunday, June 17. Denver’s own DJ Sounds Supreme! ( @djsoundssupreme )

DJ Sounds Supreme has a long history in Denver and the DJ world. He is part of the Radio Bums crew, paid his dues; collaborating on mix tapes with the likes of Guru of Gangstarr, Kid Sister, Cool Kids and UNI, a co-founding role with The Solution (featuring: Low key and Lazy Eyes), DJ’s on Denver’s HOT 107.1 FM radio Mon-Fri, has had countless appearances throughout Denver’s hip hop scene, including opening up for Diplo, Steve Aoki, DJ Qbert, The Xecutioners, Pete Rock, LMFAO and Kid Cudi, to name a few and  residencies Friday nights at Chloé on & Satrurdays at Suite 200

Like we said, he is one of the best DJ’s we’ve ever known, he can mix about anything smoothly and flawlessly, along with providing tight cuts that even the best turn tablist would appreciate. He has definitely been a huge inspiration to both DBO and myself (artistIQ). He is also one of the most humble and chill people we know, which makes him not only an amazing DJ, but a great friend as well.

He can even MC a bit too, we have a track with him freestyling from back in the day, like 2005 – we might have to break this out.

In addition to contributing to the DJ and music scene throughout Denver, he also contributes to the community with Scratch Academy, teaching and educating children about the art of DJ’ing and turn tablism.

You can catch his mixes, and mix tapes via his online resources:

Macklemore’s visit to Denver

April 30th, 2011 | Events, People | 0 Comments

I caught the Macklemore show Friday night at The Bluebird Theater. This is the first time that I have seen him live and it was an awesome show. Aside from the stage dynamic he had with his producer Ryan Lewis, his trumpet player and the crowd, the sound was great.

This was quite a decent change from some of the recent shows I have attended. I know that the Bluebird is a smaller venue, but their system and audio engineer was great and better than many of the larger venues lately.

It gets frustrating when going to some of these underground hip hops shows where you cannot hear the masterful lyricism of the MC’s, which is a large part of the music. So props to the Bluebird on the sound, and of course, props to Macklemore for creating the sound and entertainment.
