PLASTIK

The talent has been in DJ Plastik's family for some time. His cousin is vocalist / guitarist, Todd Park Mohr, from Big Head Todd & the Monsters and his mother, a professionally trained vocalist. Growing up around these musical experiences and an interest in hip-hop lead Plastik to pick up the turntables. The Los Angeles native has been perfecting his DJ skills for 8 years and creating a head-rushing blend of progressive, techno, and trance. He started off spinning at Southern California parties and is now the resident of Blue After Hours in Hollywood and The Crystal at the Catch One in Los Angeles.

In addition to DJing along side such talent as Christopher Lawrence, Taylor, Mark Lewis, Kimball Collins, Doran, Dave Aude, DJ Micro, and Eddie 'Flash N' Folkes, Plastik has signed a deal with AM Recordings and releases the intense Crystal mix CD featuring tracks by Oliver Lieb, Timo Maas, and Doran. Plastik has a dedication, down to earth attitude and passion for the music that must be heard. -Justin Hardison

Dayv

The self-taught Denver resident Dayv Mckernan got his start about three years ago in college and is now working to take his excellent progressive/ UK hard house sets to the next level. His dedication and practice is such a huge priority that he is leaving his job for a year in an attempt to make a career out of it and plans on playing some larger events by the end of summer. "I will be leaving my regular day job, to pursue my goal/dream of being a DJ. I have one year to put all of my efforts into something that I love. At the end of that year, I have to decide whether to go back to my old day job, or to continue with the new path. Realistically, I know that I'll likely be back to work in a year, but I will at least know that I gave it all a shot." He already has a fine-tuned talent for mixing and track selection on his bustling sets and a year should be more then enough time to build some steady residencies. As any dj will tell you, things don't always go as planned and Dayv seems to keep his feet glued to the ground with his "no bullshit" attitude to his work. "I think that would be the perfect mix of life, being able to have a good job, and do a little spinning on the side."-JH

Jonathan Schippers

Twenty-one year old Jonathan Schippers has been DJing for five years. After receiving his first pair of turntables from a friend, Schippers was clueless as to where to begin, spinning mainly Hip-Hop until a friend took him to the Tunnel where “Danny Tenaglia was doing something amazing, from that point on I was hooked.” He says. Jonathan was inspired, began spending much of his time at Satellite records and spinning at various parties. His he created an intense set of heavy-hitters tracks that primarily combine the darker and deeper elements of House and Techno. The middle of his mix peaks out into some abrasive air raid sirens, tracks that sample Depeche Mode as well as Pink Floyd and ends with a minimal Plus 8 tune. Look out for more of him in the future or book him for your next event.
