Good morning folks! As I type this it's late and I'm craving another bowl of Reese's Peanut Butter Crunch cereal. That shit is good!
Anywho, this here Spotlight blog is devoted to the wonderful DJ's performing at this years fest! To start things off lets give a listen to Fresno DJ and producer JUKEBAWKS!
Jukebawks is one of the preeminent DJ/producers working in the Valley today. If there's a rapper with the "up and coming" label attached to them, it's likely that Jukebawks is behind the scenes, crafting that rappers beats. See for example his soulful production on the debut single from rap supergroup the Grizzly City Boys (featuring Fashawn, Omar Aura, Otis Reed, & Halo).
And Jukebawks ain't no slouch when it comes to releasing his own material. 2015 has seen the release of two Jukebawks albums (instrumental and otherwise), full of futuristic R&B, 90's covers, and remixes of locally created songs (see remix of Sahab's "No?" below).
Jukebawks is an incredible talent and we're proud to have him perform at this years festival! For more info on Jukebawks, visit his Soundcloud, Twitter, and Instagram.
Next up is up and coming Fresno DJ GREEN GIANT!
Green Giant is quickly becoming one of the go to DJ's on the Fresno scene. His cruise night ready tunage has resulted in Green Giant consistently heading up shows at Veni Vidi Vici and other prominent ArtHop venues, not to mention almost every festival this summer. Plus, he's a suuuuper nice guy, always willing to help out a fellow musician in need.Green Giant is guaranteed to rock the turntables! Don't sleep on this dude! For more information visit his Soundcloud and Instagram.
Last but not least, give it up for Reedley phenom and Spanspek alumni NESTO!
Nesto has performed many times before at Spanspek as the drummer for prog/instrumental group Tokyo Death March. This'll be his first time going solo at the festival and we're pretty excited. Nesto's homebrewed mix of oldies, 90's/00's raps, and the kitchen sink is the perfect cure to what ails you, assuming what ails you is curable via dancing your ass off.
We're happy to welcome Nesto back into the Spanspek fold. For more info, visit Nesto's Soundcloud!
And that's it for the DJ's! They'll be performing within the Spanspek Bar area, so be sure to bring your ID's! Thanks and we'll be back with spotlight blogs on the rest of the bands performing at Spanspek!
