DJ Zeph


"DJ Zeph, has been a tenacious disciple of music since 1982, starting off as part of a breakdancing crew from his hometown of Santa Cruz, Ca. Soon after, the eminent Kut Masta Murt took Zeph under his wing and often invited him into the studio. From that point on, Zeph began to concentrate on his skills as a DJ.

After aquiring a degree in Audio Production from San Francisco State University and a tenure at the university's radio station, KSFS, Zeph had become a prominent artist from the depths of the Bay Area talent pool. Now, as he steps in the spotlight, DJ Zeph reigns as one of the top Bay Area DJ's, and rightly so.

Inspired by everyone from Public Enemy, Stevie Wonder, Jungle Brothers to Bill Laswell, Zeph's sound is musically daring and pleasingly unique. Equally celebrated as a producer, engineer, and turntablist, DJ Zeph's career is on the steady rise. The momentum has continued with Zeph taking home the honor of "Best DJ/Turntablist" at the SF Weekly Music Awards in 2002. He now sits firmly alongside Little Brother, Wildchild, and GE-OLOGY as an Urb Magazine Next 100 artist for 2003.

Zeph's album, Sunset Salvage (Formerly Sunset Scavenger), steps it up a notch by featuring guest artists Lyrics Born, Vursatyl of the Lifesavas, "Boots" of the Coup, Azeem, and more. This album offers up a diverse range of hip hop including funk driven instrumental jams to disco-infused booty shakers, as well as smooth rocking emcee tracks that roll over Zeph's signature soundscapes. With an aggressive touring schedule and the ability to please any hip hop and jam-funk crowd, Zeph continues to be one of the most successful and in demand Bay Area DJ's and producers." - Widehive Records

"Rise Up, the long-awaited album from veteran underground emissaries Zeph & Azeem, offers thirteen tracks (and two interludes) worth of consciousness lifting metaphors, party-rocking beats, and undiluted, 100% rebel musi. In the tradition of classic pairings like Guru & Premier, the D.O.C. and Dr. Dre, Erik B. and Rakim ( and more recently Aceyalone and RJD2), Rise Up matches one DJ/Producer with one MC, with suitably stellar results. Zeph-an in demand club DJ who’s been active on the remix circuit for many years, in addition to producing two solo albums—matches Azeem’s versatility beat for beat and track-for track, showing why he’s the best kept secret behind the boards since Diamond D." - Erik Arnold
