Bassment Sessions July 21: Triple Play

By SpinnZinn posted Jul 21, 2011 at 11:45 AM

Join us tonight at 9pm as we bring you 3 local Djs: Dj Ology, Brian De La Funk, and QBA Catch Bassment Sessions at 9pm.

 

 
DJ OLOGY 
 
DJ OLOGY was born to make music a priority in his life. His father, a seasoned percussionist in Cuba, beared a child with music in his blood. He shadowed his DJ mentor, Mike Red, who he grew up watching how he would climb his way towards success and sonic perfection in his mixing and music, becoming a resident at legendary nightclub, "The Edge" during the Fever parties in the early 90s, which landed him to open for Afrika Bambaata & Soul Sonic force, one of the grandfathers of electronic dance music today.
 
DJ OLOGY was first taken notice of when he had the idea of keeping the dance music scene alive on his former radio show, The Burrow, first with Radiate FM in 2003 during the fall of Party 93.1, taking the torch from the forefront of dance music on the radio, supporting local recording artists such as Willie Morales, DMS 12, Parantula, Armand Pena & Alexander Orue. His love, support and name in his local scene landed him guest spots at Nikki Beach, Amika, Flavor, Club Rain, Discotekka and Pawnshop, but his talents truly shined when he took Miami by storm at the Ultra Music Festival in 2006 & 2007, performing for four years consecutively.
 
DJ OLOGY addictive sound does not pay tribute to any specific groove of house but has a particular taste to deep Minimal & Funky Tech House, Progressive Tribal, Electro & Fidget House. DJ OLOGY is always keeping his sound fresh, cutting edge and full of surprise.

Brian De La Funk
 
Brian De La Funk a.k.a. Brian Sims, began his DJ career in Hip Hop and Miami Bass at 14 years old.  As he began to take the profession more seriously, he discovered Breakbeats from his friends, and got hooked.   At the age of 18, Brian was already spinning at parties hosted at clubs on Miami Beach and in Downtown Miami.  After attending the University of Central Florida, he spun at the World Famous Firestone Niteclub in Orlando, as well as BAR Orlando, Mako’s, and other local venues.  By the age of 21, Brian had residencies at Friday and Saturday night parties at clubs like Space (Miami), State, NV, Oxygen and Love.
 
Being heavily influenced by the smooth latin rhythms in South Florida, along with the great electronic music heard year ‘round in Miami, Brian’s style has no “definition.”  “Defining myself would limit my ability to perform for a variety of crowds, and allow me to truly express myself creatively,” said De La Funk. “You will definitely find a lot of bass in my sets, and synths too.  You will probably hear 4/4 grooves along side breakbeats too.”  
 
Brian loves to add effects and play with the beats as much as possible, so you will notice him tweaking a lot of knobs and bringing in outside instruments, software, and hardware into his performances.
 
“I love EDM (electronic dance music) first, so if you don’t see my dancing or me rockin’ to the beats I’m playing, there must be something awry!” said Brian, “afterall, isn’t that why we’re all together in the “house movement’ anyway?”  
 
 
QBA
Comprising one part of the DJ duo Parantula, Gino a.k.a. QBA is one of Miami's up and coming underground DJs, earning respect with having had residencies at Space, Crobar, Nocturnal, and Nikki Beach. QBA is a South Florida native who was first introduced to his DJ partner Andrew in late 2003 and soon after began working side by side with him, fusing their complementary artistic and technical talents. Characterized by diverse, energetic and flowing grooves, Parantula contributes their understanding of the crowds to a deep appreciation and understanding of all styles of music.
While QBA's early influences in electronica included, Freestyle, Deep House, Trance, Breaks, and Acid Jazz, his partnerships have steered him into a different style of house music, without causing him to lose appreciation of his roots. He still holds on dearly to the music he listened to before electronica including Classical, Jazz, Soul, Rock, Old School Hip Hop, and Disco the influence of all these sounds can be heard throughout his sets.
 
QBA has played alongside the greats of the house music world such as Roger Sanchez, Robbie Rivera, Danny Tenaglia, Oscar G, Erick Morillo, Steve Lawler, Deep Dish, Victor Calderone, Loco Dice and many more. He delivers when the time comes and his fans never forget his style or passion that he brings to the decks. Whether you caught him in Colombia or in Santo Domingo or in the Space (Miami) patio he will take you on a musical journey that will leave you hungry for more.
 
In the summer of 2006, Parantula released their first single “The World” on Juicy Music. “The World” was supported by the likes of Robbie Rivera, Oscar G, Willie Morales, Ivano Bellini, Saeed Younan and many others. From there on they entered a different world where fans wanted to hear more of what they had in store. In the spring of 2008 QBA had his first release on Juicy Music “Colombian Rush” an original track on his own. Since then he has continued to work on remixes for his friend Charlie Solana at Southside Recordings as well as release other originals works on different labels. Whether it’s a remix or an original track his style and passion for the music cuts right through to you on the dance floor.
 
His love and respect for what he plays can be seen any time you watch and hear him spin.
