DJ Amazing Clay, whose DJ career stretches back some 27 years (circa ‘Planet Rock’, an early staple of Clay’s sets), founded ‘Equipe Curtisom Rio’ ‘ one of Rio’s earliest funk sound systems. Until his recent collaboration with Th' Mole (remixing "Go Horsie"), Clay's definitive production work has remained almost completely within the Brazilian baile funk scene, gracing recordings by Mr. Catra, Deize Tigrona and MC Dido, flanked by the unparalleled baile funk label, Man Recordings. myspace.com/djamazingclay
Bearmod (AKA Blingmod, Briefcase Rockers) hails from Hawaii but resides in Montreal, hanging tough with the Turbo Crunk crew, making people dance to the rocket-powered bleep hop, all in the name of love. He and Th' Mole met long ago when they were aimless young punks in Hawaii; now Bearmod regularly rocks crowds alongside such acts as Megasoid, Lazer Sword, Hovatron, Lunice, and more. For Jump Jack, Bearmod remixes the track "Heart Phire" (from the forthcoming album), transforming it from a hillbilly stomper to a city-slick stepper. myspace.com/bearmod
Th' Mole has been spinning his weird web since the 90's, jumping from the Bay Area to Hawaii to New Orleans and beyond, meanwhile running his own record label, Motion Recordings, and releasing music under a number of aliases. Th' Mole's music has been released by numerous indie labels (Hectic, Zhark, Anti-Party, Vaatican, etc.), and he has performed all over the world, sharing stages with such notables as DJ Krush, Venetian Snares, Living Legends, Meat Beat Manifesto, and more.
