More about musicians:
supertaster
Supertaster
is the latest offshoot of the Jazz Mafia, San Francisco’s eclectic and highly talented musical collective. Formed in late 2007, the band features Adam Theis on bass, trombone, and electronics, Jon Monahan on guitar and electronics, Matt Berkeley on keyboards, and Joe Bagale on drums and vocals. With the recent addition of Karyn “Game” Paige on vocals, the band has become one of the most incendiary live acts on the Bay Area music scene. This dynamic five-piece ensemble has developed into a band that slides easily between raw funk, post-rock, glitch-hop and more. Supertaster is currently recording original music for their debut album. For more info: http://www.yonasmedia.com/ympress/supertaster/index.htm

DJ Teeko is a master turntablist, composer, producer, and co-founder of 4onefunk, groundbreaking turntable funk bands The Dollar Bin Quintet, 4onePhonics, 4onefunk Band and F.A.M.E. (Fresh Analog Music Experience).  After receiving recognition and championship awards in worldwide DJ competitions (including DMC, ITF and Guitar Center Championships), he toured from coast to coast and collaborated with some of jazz’s finest musicians: members of the Charlie Hunter Quartet and John Scofield Trio.  Teeko’s performances are frequently met with such requests as his style is often described as truly original and refreshing. Teeko exhibits his mastery of turntable production in his debut album, “My SoundStation,” which exposes his eclectic musical style and creativity as a composer. The widely anticipated album ranked number one on several of the College Music Journal’s Top 10 lists for months after its release in fall 2006. He was recognized soon after the album’s debut for his excellence in production with the Milestones Innovative Producer’s Award given by the world-renowned Berklee School of Music in Boston.  In 2010 we can look forward to Teeko raising the bar once more with his soon to be released second solo album “Light Up The Darkness”, where he introduces some amazing collaborations all within a finely tuned concept.
