SKIP is an Orlando-based artist whose unique musical stylings infuse elements of hip-hop, early 70’s-era rock ‘n roll, and soul music. Listed as his genre on Facebook page is “FAHEEM (Free Astral Hiphop Extra-Terrestrially Energized Message).”
SKIP’s latest release, Until the Very End, was picked as one of the ‘Best Albums of 2010’ by Orlando Weekly. “Until the Very End is a smile inducing venture, a top-to-bottom feel good album . . . conjuring sensibilities and sounds from genres such as ragtime, blues, acid jazz and dusty soul, it’s an endlessly danceable soundtrack for the world’s farewell party. Raise a toast to going out in style.”
OMARI JAZZ featuring URBANDY
This young Birmingham producer is only 17 and already has a great record under his belt. Last year he won a music residency at Open Atelier in Amsterdam where he worked on music production. While in Amsterdam, he performed at several venues around the city as well as on the underground station, Redlight Radio. Omari has performed with Mike Ladd, Urbandy, Sharrif Simmons, and Obsolete Gangster, among others.
DJ Tanner has been a dj since 2001, but his passion for music started as a child. He grew up in New Orleans and was raised by his father’s record collection. These two influences gave him a passion for all genres of music and the overwhelming desire to share this music with anyone willing to listen. He strongly believes that you have to know where music came from in order to know where it should go. DJ Tanner uses hip hop as a platform to mix old school, funk, reggae, soul, rock, and dance music. His extensive record collection can get any head to bob and any dance floor hype.
