PARKER..... If Knighthoods were given out for contributions to crowd rocking, Parker would be curtseying in front of the Queen come New Year. As it is, plaudits range from Massive Attack to DJ Yoda. Royalty indeed! First starting his rise smashing chumps via DJ battles, Bristol's Parker soon turned his hand to production gaining "Lofty comparisons to the marvelous RJD2". The luscious beats and driving Funk of his ..To Eternity.. LP garnered rave reviews and wide critical acclaim. Lead single 'Sugar Coated' was MTV-playlisted, while 'Western Soul', featuring San Francisco legend, Rasco, devastated dance floors. Proving he was no flash in the pan, Parker followed the album with a series of club-rocking bangers, finding homes at such heavy hitting labels as Bombstrikes, Goodgroove, and Jalapeno. Not one to rest on his laurels Parker began to dabble in Bass-Heavy Frequencies with "Deliciously pleasing results". His Dubstep refix of James Brown's 'It's a Man's World' reached number 1 in the Hype Machine Chart, while 'Where's My Monkey?' made him a Household name....well, Households that Flip to the Bass and dig King Kong-Sized Booties! Parker's Crack House remix of Max Sedgley and Glitch Hop collabo with Finley Quay further showed his versatility and confirmed him as a hit with national taste-makers BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss, 6Music and XFM. A hectic DJ schedule has seen Parker's incredible deck talents rock such festivals as Glastonbury, Shambhala (Canada), Big Chill, and Bestival, as well as various club hot spots across the globe including FabricLive. These burgeoning crowds have been treated to Parker's superior selector skills which fuse a multitude of genres designed to make you shake a tailfeather. Always one for "Combining a cheeky sense of humour with a keen ear for a record-defining sample", who knows what styles he'll be running, or inventing next, (Funkstep, anyone?). Parker is, and always will be, your friendly neighborhood beatsmith...
Now, where's my knighthood?
NEON STEVE..... (a.k.a. Steve Robertson) Whether it's his fresh face, fresh beats or fresh attire, it's hard not to notice Neon Steve. Within just a short period of time, this young up-and-coming DJ and producer has quickly made his mark within the Vancouver Island music scene and beyond. Steve's infectious blend of everything from Disco to Dubstep matched up with impeccable turntable skills are what make his Funk Laden sets impossible to not dance to. Throw in his ability of being able to craft Ass-Shaking Tunes in the studio (which are hitting the tops of Soundcloud and Hype Machine charts), and it's no surprise he's had the opportunity to share the stage with some of the worlds heaviest of hitters (Rusko, Krafty Kuts, Boy 8 Bit, the Freestylers, MSTRKRFT, Freq Nasty, Pimpsoul, Fort Knox Five, Deekline, Farace, Mat the Alien, Busta, Stickybuds, and Ed 209 to name a few). When he gets behind the decks, expect a mix of never-before-heard originals, edits and remixes from both himself and some of the best producers out there. With a touring schedule that takes him around B.C. and Alberta, gigs at major festivals like Soundwave and VEMF and an impending vinyl release on the U.K.'s Bombstrikes Records (as well as digital releases with Canada's own Punchout! and Swing Set Sounds labels).
The Future is indeed bright for this guy�they don't call him Neon Steve for nothing!!
