DJ Love (Dallas, USA) Stellar music
DJ Love began his dj career inspired by such seminal artists as Coldcut, Bomb the Bass, Simon Harris, Kraftwerk, Soulsonic Force, Egyptian Lover, Art of Noise, Paul Hardcastle and a host of other electronic and hip-hop pioneers. Electronic music fascinated him as a means of expressing raw emotion through beats, breaks and basslines

Having been trained as a classical pianist and violinist, then augmenting his skills by learning the guitar and drums in high school, Love?s musical training gave him strengths as an electronic composer from the start. Developing a small record collection his first few years of college, he was inspired by the fact that most of the music he felt was truly influential was only available on vinyl.

A live performance of "Rockit"by the legendary Herbie Hancock and Grandmaster DST changed his perspective when he witnessed someone scratching over a track live. Experimenting with his small collection, he taught himself to beat mix almost by accident. Attempting a remix of "What?s On Your Mind" by Information Society led to beatmixing a record and a drum machine together, and his DJ career was born. Confined to the small town of Lawton, Oklahoma, Love would often drive two hours or more to find the music and crowds that inspired him. He recreated scratches from his favorite hip-hop records by trial and error until he had mastered them, then began playing out at local clubs in 1988. In 1992, he threw the first-ever, documented renegade "rave" in the OKC area, employing the old-school techniques of maps, an abandoned warehouse and a generator.

This was all while he began a four-year residency at Rome, where he was given his DJ moniker of "Love". The income and gigs allowed him to acquire his own set of turntables, a mixer, and his first real music studio in 1994...six years after he had already started his DJ career. His love of real hip-hop and artists like DJ Premier and Pete Rock, among others, helped him focus on bass and beats as the sound that would define his label, Stellar Music, founded in 1996.

By 1994, Love had developed a foothold in the Dallas music scene, and in 1997 moved there permanently. With a residency at club mainstay the Lizard Lounge in 1998, he achieved a following of those dedicated to old and new beats that followed him to such respected local hot spots as 2826, The Red Jacket, The Wall, Club DNA, Starck, Euphoria, Area 51, and currenty Club One. Love has gained a following across the globe in cities like Toronto, London, D.C., Bangkok...and the dent hasn't even been made yet.

The ElastoCitizens were founded by Steve McCarthy and Jason O'Brien in the fall of 2004. With theatrical grandeur and ecstatic stageshows, they have endeavoured to bring their brand of heavy groove, funky feel good music to the masses. Since their conception The ElastoCitizens have headlined across Toronto at venues such as Crowbar, the El Mocambo, the Drake Hotel, Supermarket, Clintons Tavern, and the State Theatre, playing to over 1500 people in their first eight shows. The ElastoCitizens are distinguished from other bands by their size and by their stageshow. The band is currently made up of twelve members drawn from such diverse worlds as jazz, blues, theatre, and dance. The horn section is led by Geelicious (aka Gordon Hyland), the leader of the Ladies Foundation for the Motion of Hips is Hippapotafunk (Monica Dottor), and the entire band is led by the Grand Poohbah Groove (Steve McCarthy). With its costumes, choregraphy, superhero personas, and anarchic style the band has continued to impress new audiences with its dance-able original music. The shows are finely tuned, constantly workshopped productions whos model is closer to a theatre piece or circus than your usual rock concert. The band chooses to draw from the polyrhythms and themes of the funk era as a means of making groove-ridden modern tunes. The belief that dancing, and the buoyant joyful expression of life and sex that is at the heart of funk music, is actually good for you, unites the citizenship and gives the band unity of purpose!


Big League Chu

Colin Chu, better known as Big League Chu, is simply the leading DJ talent in Canada's breakbeat scene today. After nearly a decade of DJing, his name is synonymous with the funky, party-happy sound that?s become Chu's rallying call - and it's one that crowds answer faithfully. Passion for music and fun are what motivates Chu, who plays the piano, flute and guitar, and counts the Dave Matthews Band and Public Enemy as his biggest musical influences. It's this good-natured respect for good times and eclectic sounds that has garnered this humble DJ of Hong Kong and Singaporean descent to such a steady stream of press, from underground publications like Tribe and Klublife to mainstream outlets like the Toronto Star and Eye weekly. As Make It Funky's main resident, Colin dynamic sets and down to earth nature has made him Toronto's most sought after performer.
