OPEN BAR FOR THE FIRST HOUR!!

Revered as “The Sound of New York,” Gimel Keaton, better known as Young Guru possesses over a decade of experience in sound engineering, production, and A&R for the acclaimed Rock-A-Fella Records and Def Jam Recordings. As a Grammy Award winner for best rap song “Empire State of Mind” (2009), Young Guru has worked alongside legendary artists Jay-Z and Kanye West. Most notably recognized for shaping some of the biggest talent in Hip Hop, Young Guru has mixed 10 of Jay-Z’s 11 albums, appeared in his documentary NY-Z, and has earned himself a number of shout- outs on Jay-Z’s tracks paying homage to Guru’s exceptional skill set behind the scenes.

 

 

Young Guru’s latest break-through has been his recent appointment as Jay-Z’s official tour DJ. An endeavor well suited for the Guru considering his impeccable knowledge of Jay-Z’s discography, not to mention their longstanding professional and personal relationship dating back to 1999 after Jay-Z recruited the young engineer to mix at his Baseline Studios. A beast on the beats, DJing is just another notch in the Guru’s belt as he’s been throwing parties in his Delaware hometown since 1985 and even toured as DJ for Nonchalant back in 1996. Spanning across many diverse genres including early Hip hop, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Electro, House and Soul, Guru’s high energy DJ sets are aimed to keep Hip hop represented in the live performances through beat mixing, matching and scratching.

 

No other DJ in the world will ever be a member of the three most innovative and influential DJ crews to ever exist. As a member of the Invisibl Skratch Piklz, Beat Junkies and Triple Threat DJs, Shortkut's years of musical experience and unparalleled presence in the national and international circuits exemplifies his passion and dedication to a culture he helped create.

 

Shortkut’s musical talent magnetizes audiences of all ages both in his hometown of San Francisco, throughout the United States, and overseas. His 20+ years of DJ experience and membership with three of the world's most influential DJ collectives allowed him to enhance his skills, expand his musical selection and develop into an inspiring musician that continues to innovate and lead in progressing the art of DJing.

2nd Annual Women's Empowerment Show at Starline Social Club, Oakland, CA

March 5, 2016 at 9pm to March 6, 2016 at 2am
This will be a celebration of Women's contributions in Hip Hop! Some of us remember the early 80s and 90s when MC Sha Rock, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah and many more were putting it down for the culture. It seems these days any female in Hip Hop is forced to be a sex symbol and we too often hear narratives that perpetuate patriarchy and misogyny. HipHopForChange's fight for the culture must include lifting up our sisters and providing a space for the diverse and powerful female voice!TICKETS: …See More
