★ DJ DAVE PAUL (Bomb Hip-Hop/Return of the DJ)
For over 20 years, DJ Dave Paul has been an integral part of hip-hop and DJ culture. During the late 80s and early 90s his weekly radio show “Beat Box Fridays” on college radio station KCSF in San Francisco was instrumental in breaking many hip-hop records in the Bay Area market. In the early 90s, he launched the now legendary publication, The Bomb Hip-Hop Magazine, and in 1995, Paul transformed the magazine into a record label. The company was named “one of the fifteen independent labels that matter,” according to Rolling Stone, and the label’s Return of the DJ series was ranked by Spin Magazine as #25 in their “The 90 Greatest Albums of the 90’s” (Sept. 1999 issue), receiving a higher rating than Gold & Platinum albums by Lauryn Hill, Pearl Jam, Metallica, Green Day, and Fatboy Slim. Dave Paul has appeared on the front cover of Billboard magazine and is featured in the motion picture Scratch. Mr. Paul has DJ’ed throughout the US, toured Europe, released over 100 projects on his record label, and currently produces theme parties, including That BIG 80s Party and The Prince and Michael Experience.
★ DJ DESIGN (Look Records/Stonesthrow)
DJ Design was an early member of the Stones Throw roster, releasing the compelling instrumental album Gather Round as well as the “Sparkdala” single with Quasimoto. He produced the first two Foreign Legion albums Kidnapper Van and Playtight and toured the world as the dj for the group. Design also remixed a track from the Beastie Boys album Hello Nasty called “Negotiation Limerick File.” In 2003 DJ Design formed his own record label, Look Records, which has released full lengths from Foreign Legion, A.G. (DITC), Phat Kat (of J Dilla fame), G&D (Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins) and Grip Grand. DJ Designs album Jetlag features guest appearances by Stones Throw recording artists Guilty Simpson, Oh No & Roc C and former Stones Throw artist Dudley Perkins, football star Brandon Lloyd and Detroit’s Phat Kat of J Dilla fame. Between tour dates and the daytime gig as president of Look Records, DJ Design produced and his album to what it is today. Jetlag is a snapshot of Designs past as well as a look into the future of this eclectic producer.
