QUANTIC AND HIS COMBO BARBARO(www.........myspace.........com/....quanticmusic)
‘Tradition In Transition’ – recorded in Cali, Colombia – is the upcoming album from Quantic and his Combo Bárbaro, which sees Will ‘Quantic’ Holland mining the lesser-tapped musical sources from the Caribbean, Latin America and Africa and fusing those rediscovered psychedelic, experimental and rhythmically rich sounds of the past with deep funk and soul elements and folkloric vocal styles. This exceptional longplayer gives life to an explosive sonic snapshot of an ever-evolving musical landscape, played out by a carefully assembled international cast of musical creators.
The Funky President of the Beat Junkie Crew. For well over ten years, this man has established himself as one of the illest DJs around, with his signature blends and supreme selection. A steady globe-trotter, J has travelled extensively and showcased his solid knowledge of music with the very best talents, including the late great J Dilla (RIP). His deep catalog of mix tapes and cds are considered classic, from "Syndromes" to "Taster’s Choice." J is well-versed in a wide array of sounds, and always gets down something serious when behind the decks.
DJ NU-MARK (www.........myspace.....com/djnumark)
Nu-Mark began DJing as a teenager in Los Angeles. Over the course of the last two decades, he has amassed a collection of over 35,000 records and refined his technical skills and performance style to the point where he is widely recognized as one of the key figures in the late-90s DJ explosion which pushed the DJ to the front of the culture’s awareness.

Gary Garay, known by some as Alla behind the paint brush and by others as Ganas behind the turntables at Mas Exitos. He been creating art since the early nineties. He works in mediums of paint, sculpture, drawing and graphic design, and has done everything from gallery shows to album covers over the years. The common theme in his work is that it always makes some kind of social commentary on a current aspect of living in Los Angeles. It touches on themes of mixing cultures, media and consumerism in the city of angels. He is a first generation, US born Mexican with an eye on the interplay of life vs. survival. Music is also a heavy part of Garay's inspiration.
