DJ Sku - bio

Sku (pronounced skew) is no stranger to the ever evolving musical tastes of today's club going patrons. With over a decade of experience behind the decks and in nightclubs across the globe, he "skews" the notion of DJ-as-selector by laying both hands to the wax and showing his ability to take just about any two records and seamlessly mix them into a battery of butt-movin' beats. Taking elements from his "turntablist" background and incorporating trick mixing, beat juggling, and scratching into his sets, is what easily sets him apart from other DJ's. He's a nationally recognized and award winning DJ with accomplishments in various prestigious DJ competitions held around the world including the DMC, Red Bull Thre3style, and Guitar Center battles. Touring nationally and internationally with industry heavyweights such as Atmosphere and performing alongside Grammy winners LMFAO, Sku is well versed in adapting to any entertainment situation. Spinning in bars for 200 people or dropping tracks at festivals for 20,000 people you can count on Sku to rock any crowd in any room with his seamless mixing style, weaving in and out of genres as if he were actually weaving a blanket of pure musical bliss. Book him today, you won't regret it.

Brent Tactic - bio

A solid decade of dominance can't be wrong. Such is the case for Kansas City DJ and producer Brent Tactic, who in bridging the space where the underground storms the mainstream has successfully kept dance floors filled nationwide. Independent hip hop was the starting point for the Midwest native. Success in that realm mirrors his work now, as between DJing and running an independent label he established solid roots in the game.

Blog fanatics and close followers of indie dance likely know Brent Tactic from his "Tactic" tandem with Ben Tactic (Fuller). The duo first paired in 2002, a common creative ground found in a now pop trending style ignoring genre boundaries. Four turntable DJ sets blurred the line between hip-hop, electro and bass-heavy club music, while their production chops earned them plays on NYC's East Village Radio, London's KISS FM and BBC Radio1 plus spins in the sets of Diplo, Sinden, Tittsworth, Starkey, Jackmaster, Dave Nada, Cosmo Baker and Eli Escobar. With remixes and original tracks released on labels such as Mad Decent, Dress 2 Sweat (Numbers), Starkey's label Slit Jockey, Palms Out Sounds, Get Flavor and Datura Records, Brent's continuing success is a story of advancing expectations.

Rising tropical bass by way of pitched down house genre moombahton may be where Brent Tactic gains he international legacy. Started with Ben Tactic, his Think 2wice Records is a respected early leader in the sound, top Beatport charting release Star Time from Arizona kingpin DJ Melo a sign of things to come. Tactic's own blend of funk and soul informed by traditional Latin melodies taps into his hip hop past, and has found space in sets and key cosigns of top moombahton stars Nadastrom, Munchi, David Heartbreak and Sabo. Furthermore, his voluminous background as a well respected producer and label boss has assisted Kansas City's local party scene to quickly ascend to the top of the list for national dance insiders.
