Beat scholar, party scientist, ragga maniac, and remixer of singers from M.I.A. to Gregory
Isaacs, DJ C continues to spread his
fiercely eclectic gospel of crunkment, mashstep, ragga-bounce, and grime-hall
across the land. He's been pumping out a series of records on U.S., U.K.,
and Japanese labels including a remix of M.I.A.'s U.R.A.Q.T. for
05 single on XL
Recordings, as well as singles for Shockout, Community
Library, and his own Mashit imprint.
The tunes have been killing club sound-systems and airwaves worldwide.
In fact, legendary BBC Radio 1 host John Peel chose Mashit as a "label
of the month" and featured a DJ
C mix of Mashit tracks.
Most recently he's been collaborating with bad-man-ragga-vocalist Zulu on
a series vinyl releases. Their track Darling will be released shortly
on 12-inch with a remix by Montreal bounce maestro Ghislain
Poirier. DJ C's has also done a remix for Poirier's track "Blazin'" which
was released on a Ninja Tune 12-inch.
In addition to all the singles, his full-length album Sonic
Weapons was released this past summer on the Japanese Wimm
Recordings label, along-side a Sonic
Weapons 12-inch EP released on Bristol U.K.'s Death$ucker label.
These followed his Traced
Milk EP released last year.
There's more DJ C material in the pipeline; for Berlin-based Man
Recordings' "Funk Mundial" series, and the upcoming London-based Heatwave 12-inch
series to name a couple. DJ C is also well known for his online DJ
mixes. A recent mix for the Blentcast series
was downloaded fourty-thousand times in its first 3 months online. When he's
not busy recording, he DJs and performs live for crowds the world over. Look
out for a DJ C appearance near you, as a perpetual string of North American and
European tour dates continue...
