HAUTE MESS:  sc

INFLUENCE: Influence started his piratical career in a time called Ye Olden School. Quickly rising through ranks of deck swabbing, plank laying, wenching, & rumming; his golden years came to end upon the capture of his ship by a band of jolly rogers on the ship Strategik (they were good with a cannon, but not so much with spelling). Locked away in the ship’s depths, every night he was told, “Good night, Westley. Good work. Sleep well. I’ll most likely kill you in the morning.” All seemed lost, so he got into Djing, took over the ship, called himself Influence, and the rest was basically, history… basically. web / fb / sc

Oh, and I also play Duran Duran.” When was it decided that any jerk with 10 records (or 100 MP3s and Serato) is a DJ, and when was it decided that just being a good old-fashioned hip-hop DJ is passé? web / fb / tw / sc

I have been writing and producing music for a very long and my first 12′ record was released on Brownswood Electr*c Volume 2- Giles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings. I have hundreds of beats that will never see the light of day, mostly downtempo and the occasionally syrup dripped rap jawn. My album will come when it comes, I am not tripping and you should be. I live in San Francisco and I throw parties- tastemaker shows. I try to challenge the audience and have a fun time doing it… I want to do memorable parties with good music. It’s hard. I personally play all the time up down the west coast. I’ve headlined shows and I’ve done a bunch of support.
