This week's special guests:
RED ARMY [SAC] - Skunkrock | Argon | Phuturo | Breakbeat Science | N2O | Freeburning | Simplify | Onset Audio | Hot N Heavy
James Fuhring has been involved with music since the early 90's, although you'd never guess it by his current output. His humble beginnings started as the bass player and/or drummer for such legendary punk bands as Mohinder and Jenny Piccolo. The latter, would be responsible for him accidentally hearing the sound of Drum & Bass while in Berlin on a European tour. By 1999, he sold most of his gear to be replaced by turntables, mixer and a sampler. Not knowing anyone involved in the Drum & Bass scene, James contacted local UC Santa Cruz radio dj and Argon records label don Nman (Nick Manousos) about giving him some bedroom mixtapes he had made. James was invited down to the radio station where he would meet future Red Army members Justin Boreta (of Glitch Mob fame) and Joaquin Ortiz. From that point on, Red Army would start a career that would see them released by such labels as Argon, Skunkrock, Breakbeat Science, Phuturo, and N2O. As of 2006, due to geographical location and/or lack of interest, Red Army would stand at one member, but would more than double the music output as a one man army. Since then, he has released a single and EP on Simplify Recordings, a split single and EP for Onset Recordings, a song on Hot N Heavy Recording's latest compilation, 'Bay Area Bass Vol. 3' and his debut LP also for Onset Recordings entitled Dilaudid.
SPIRE [SAC] - Fathom Sound | Grimey
ZEPHYR [PLA] - Element of Soul
Seth " Zephyr" Ahern, a Dubstep/DnB/HipHop Dj, was inspired by the early 90's rave scene. His hiphop roots & new discovery of Drum & Bass lead him to two turntables & a mixer. In 2009, he joined Element of Soul, an acoustic reggae/hiphop band, providing electronic beats, scratching & sound effects. Bringing electronic music to the hills, DJ Zephyr has opened for Anahata Sound, Destructo Bunny, Apaullo 8 & local Sac talent like Tribe of Levi & Digit. He has held down residence DJ duties @ Pj's, a local bar, doing Friday Top 40 nights. In the recent year, Zephyr has taken up production with his first remix of an Element of Soul original and many more to come! He is currently hosting a Bi-Weekly internet radio show on Sundays, "The Dinner Time Grime from 7 to 9" on v103.Net.
