# Jamie 3:26
Hailing from the Beverly area on the South Side of Chicago, Jamie 3:26 has garnered recognition in his own right as a master selector capable of lighting any dancefloor on fire.
Driven by the desire to allow people to loose themselves on the floor and forget their problems, Jamie keeps his irons in the fire. He always seeks out new and fresh sounds. It could be a song from 30 years ago or a new jam, as long as it has a great groove, he’s interested in it. When he plays, his main goal is to connect with the crowd. He feeds off of their energy and has the uncanny ability to read a floor and switch the groove without losing them. Directing them to places he wants them to go is what sets him apart from many other DJs.
Over the last few years Jamie has released a slew of records on his Basement Edits series on both ParteHardy and Strobelight Honey Records, and has earned appreciation all over the world – touring Europe, Asia and Australia. A true gentleman in the scene and connoisseur of fine music with a heart and soul from Chicago and the talent to know how to make people move is what sets Jamie apart from the rest of the crowd.
# Dan Shake
Perhaps best known as the first ever non-Detroit artist to be signed to Moodymann’s prestigious label Mahogani Music, London based Dan Shake has been making his mark on dance-floors all over Europe, both with his distinctive productions and his expertise in working for a crowd.
The former Leeds student secured the feat in a charmingly anachronistic fashion: having just watched Kenny Dixon Jr perform alongside the 3 Chairs at Dimensions Festival, Dan simply handed over a demo CD with a collection of unreleased tracks. Moodymann was hooked almost instantly, taking the first plunge on welcoming an outsider into his tight-knit crew of Detroit strong artists.
Citing influence from the layered percussive rhythms of Afrobeat pioneers such as Tony Allen and Fela Kuti, the soul-drenched sampling of J Dilla and the kind of dark, dense grooves laid out by contemporary producers such as Flying Lotus and Motor City Drum Ensemble, Dan’s situation in winding up on a label renowned for encompassing all those traits is obviously a blessing for the young producer.
