Cosmic Jason, Andre Lucero, Matt Holland, JD
Deep Crates is excited for this month's guests, Cosmic Jason and Andre Lucero:
André Lucero - DJ Bio
A veteran of West Coast underground electronic music culture, André Lucero continues to reinvent himself. From breakdancing in the early 80's to his present studio efforts, he always kept his focus on beats and sounds of genres to come. Starting with the earliest electro hip-hop, passing through time and space to the present and future of electronic music, his selections are open minded but always have a dancefloor sensibility.
Not being satisfied with spoon feeding or accepting convenience, André has chosen the paths less traveled. Helping foster the rave scene in Santa Barbara; playing at the first mega-rave in the US (Raveamerica); releasing one of the first (if not THE first) underground electronic dance music mixed CD's (Fusion, Volume 1); his involvement with the seminal San Francisco techhouse event/DJ crew, Urban Development; to playing with international legends for Space Children, he has been recognized for decades as a stand alone talent who brings something special to the lineup. Sharing the decks with some of the heaviest hitters on the planet, he understands how to rock a crowd as well as to tell a story. No two sets from André are alike. Each moment drives the relevance of the music selection. Each moment is unique.
The sound: warm, spacey, funky, soulful.
Aside from his current affiliations with Wax Candy and Fiction, André has recently played for Bionic, Go BANG!, lil brthr, Werd and White Label, to name a few.
Currently he is working on remix projects and building a new studio as well as a concept mix set, "Spheres". Stay tuned.
Cosmic Jason - DJ Bio
Who is this guy, this Cosmic Jason? Well, if you've spent any time on an SF dancefloor in the last 20+ years, you probably owe him some thanks. Ever been to one of the legendary Come-Unity parties? Jason's one of the co-founders and was a resident for over 10 years. Ever been to a Wicked? He's one of the founding members. Two of the most influential and important parties of the San Francisco scene, Cosmic Jason was not just there, he was originating it. He was planting the seeds for what was to become an amazing time in the history of SF dance culture.
Jason was also a resident of Vanilla Fudge, Dub Plate, Classique, The Ambient Club, and the Imperial Dub parties. In the late 90s he was the touring DJ for Dubtribe.
Jason is now working on his own productions and re-edits.
He says he's digging deep for us, which is all we ask, an awesome mix of disco, deep house, acid, balearic, and of course, Cosmic!
