SHIFTEE – New York City’s Shiftee has translated his intuitive math geek mentality into far-reaching success on the turntables, electrifying crowds from NYC to London to Hong Kong. With a math degree from Harvard, 2 unique DMC World Champion titles, an NYU professorship, and an ongoing international tour schedule, Shiftee seems like an overachiever. His championship titles read like a laundry list of the most prestigious turntablist awards and he has performed on show lineups including A-Trak, Craze, Klever, Dieselboy, DJ Funk, Cash Money, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Tittsworth, RJD2, Murs, The Beat Junkies, X-ecutioners, Q-Bert, Z-Trip, and more. When he’s not teaching the DJ art form at New York University and Dubspot DJ & Production School in NYC, Shiftee spends his time figuring out new and innovative ways to decimate the dancefloor and push the dj artform to new levels. He fuses an astute ear for cutting edge music with a world champion skill set and sense of the crowd, creating an experience that is always unique.
Check out Shiftee, his techniques, and his sense of humor in this video introduction.
Watch SHIFTEE do what he does on his Youtube channel.

SHAHEED & SUPREME – Shaheed, The Scholar Warrior MC – drops thought-provoking rhymes over Supreme’s flawless, soulful production. With a direct, impeccable flow, Shaheed lays out rhymes that define his life and his beliefs in a way that promote positivity without the negative trappings of a “holier than thou” attitude. Shaheed and Supreme teamed up in 2007 and released “Health Wealth and Knowledge of Self.” In 2010 they released their follow-up, “The Scholar Warrior Remix Album.” Both of these albums represent the four elements of hip hop and push a positive message of social consciousness. Shaheed has been performing for over 16 years and has shared the stage with artists such as Amir Sulaiman, Shariff Simmons, Ishues, Raekwon and Akil The One [from Jurassic 5].
