Honors Student Full Bio:
Hailing from Lansing, Michigan, Detroit’s blue collar sister city and state capitol, it’s hard not to hear Techno, Electro and Ghettotech (then called simply “bass” or “booty-music”). Infatuated by these local sounds and the emerging Midwest hip-hop scene, Contakt suddenly found himself at the center of it all, djing at illegal parties, and launching Lansing’s first record store devoted solely to hip-hop, electronic music, and hardcore/punk. This success quickly lead to relocating to New York and landing in the epicenter of the independent hip-hop movement running the world famous Fat Beats Records, and DJing at shows with everyone from Cormega to J-Zone, MF Doom to Necro.

As dubstep gained traction in the states, and 2-Step and garage were resurrected by artists like Burial and Kode 9, Contakt returned to his roots launching the first party in the United States devoted to “bass music” or whatever you call the interesting stuff that isn’t quite Dubstep. The event; TURRBOTAX®, quickly found success as part of the NYC bass trifecta (alongside Trouble & Bass and Dubwar) with a devoted following and world class headliners like Todd Edwards, Mosca, Bok Bok, Robert Hood, Kode9, Julio Bashmore, Ben UFO, Oneman and more. The success of TURRBOTAX® lead to inevitable UK and European tours, as well as guest appearances on RinseFM, London’s premiere radio station for bass music, house, and garage.

At the top of 2012, TURRBOTAX® is already poised for an incredible year, and Contakt is readying several releases and remixes, and even more DJ bookings. Known for combining an amazing selection dubplates from the best in bass music with rare Detroit Techno vinyl and his own productions – Contakt’s DJ sets have a vibe entirely of their own.

New Traktor + Maschine Routine w/ Joker’s “Slaughterhouse”

I just dropped a new routine for Dubspot.  The video is the first part of a three part series, which you can find more information about HERE.

YouTube Preview Image


My official statement on the routine:

“This is a routine I put together for my recent appearance on the legendary Rinse FM (big shouts to DJ Wonder for having me on!).  It’s meant to show my softer side. Yes, you may know me for my manly feats of strength and untapped primal aggression on delicatessen waiting lines.  When you think Shiftee, you probably think of a brute force who opens jars, lifts heavy boxes, and attends the gym regularly (big shouts to my trainer Sergi for keeping me toned!).  But there’s more to me.  I take long walks on the beach.  I gaze wistfully at setting suns and old people.  I once watched a trailer for The Notebook and felt something deep inside (it was indigestion, but still).  Please watch the following video, and get to know the real me. – Forever Yours, Shiftee”
