Lady Fingaz (Females Wit Funk)
Although an Austin,Tx native, it was in New Orleans where DJ Lady Fingaz quickly made a name for herself as a rising female talent in an all to often male dominated genre. In 2004 Lady Fingaz collaborated with local indie hip-hop label Media Darling Records, and toured the U.S. along side some of the labels most talented artists. She has played alongside such artists as Floetry, Galactic, Murs, Saul Williams, Dj Disk, Faust and Shortee, Buck 65, Dj Klever, Live Human, and MC Chris just to name a few. Following the destruction of Hurricane Katrina, Dj Lady Fingaz relocated to San Francisco to further pursue her musical career.
The genie is a performing artist and guitar innovator. Sponsored by the Line6 production company, he is the creator of a unique live-looping method called ‘scratch guitar’ as well as a unique brand of live-remixing called ‘gemixing’. Bringing together a hybrid of genres, including jazz, dubstep, latin, reggae, hip hop, blues, middle-eastern, Indian and electronica, he utilizes unconventional slide techniques while manipulating knobs on his pedals with his toes. Always a crowed pleaser, his live shows are uniquely inspiring.
Kat010 (Crown City Rockers)
Known for her keyboard savvy as part of the Bay Area power group, Crown City Rockers, Kat 010 is originally from Philadelphia yet is recognized globally for her Trip-Hop and Down-tempo musical style. Although most notorious for her skills on the keys, Kat is also a very impressive one woman band, which is what she will be blessing us with this ‘Jam On It’.
