About DP ONE
—————–

Born, raised, and still residing in Brooklyn, New York, Daniel A. Pinero p.k.a DP One has spent most of his life immersed in Hip Hop. As a DJ, b-boy, and even occasionally lacing the mic with some rhymes as an emcee, he puts an immense amount of effort into keeping Hip Hop moving in a positive direction. Besides spinning at parties and b-boy jams around the New York City area as an active member of the Heavy Hitters and Turntable Anihilists, he serves as a resident DJ of two internet radio shows, and has toured internationally with notable artists such as Lauryn Hill, Estelle, John Legend, J-Live, Q-Unique, and Wordsworth. He has also been involved in various high-profile events such as the first Red Bull BC One battle in North America, which was held in New York City and hosted by KRS One.

Born in 1977, DP One began to hone his DJ skills at the young age of fourteen, in the midst of what many consider to be the “Golden Era” of Hip Hop. As a DJ he credits a lot of his foundation to the Alava family, who had the first DJ setup DP ever laid his eyes upon. It was with the Alavas that he deejayed his first house parties, which served as his first glimpses into life as a DJ. Additionally, DJ’s Enuff, Vandal, and Tchak Nasty introduced him to battle videos, taught him his first scratch patterns, and inspired him to enter his first competition. He was later exposed to b-boying by A-B-Girl of the Domestic Apes Crew, which proved to be advantageous to his career as a DJ. He became familiar with break beats and the type of music that brought out the best in various dancers, and applied this knowledge to spinning at b-boy jams and battles, establishing his name as one of the premier talents in the scene. DP, an active member of the Universal Zulu Nation and Supreme Beings, served as the resident DJ of the well-known Braggin’ Rites battles, which have been re-established as of October 2009, and also held down the wheels of steel at notable battles such as Kings of NY, Bboy Massacre, the 2007 Zulu Nation Anniversary, The Battle On Shaolin, and the Skill Methodz 10th Year Anniversary.

While he was making a name for himself amidst the b-boys and b-girls of New York City, DP was still making sure that he was making moves in other realms of Hip Hop as well. As his DJ career progressed, he had the opportunity to DJ for the likes of Miri-Ben-Ari, Lauryn Hill, The Fugees, Estelle and John Legend. His cuts and scratches have been featured on a multitude of tracks, including those of artists such as Pumpkinhead, Jadakiss, Marco Polo, Immortal Technique, Kurious Jorge and Statik Selektah. He also teamed up with DJ’s Blowout, Xplor, and GI Joe to form a crew known as Turntable Anihilists, who have been living up to the name for quite a few years by releasing various mixtapes that have received positive reviews, including the Fire Your DJ and Underworld series. He has also appeared on TV shows such as MTV’s My Super Sweet 16 episode about Star Trak recording artist Teyana Taylor. DP even performed in a Broadway play entitled Soular Power’d, produced by Kwik Step and Rokafella of Full Circle Productions. This opened the door to another Broadway opportunity in the form of NY Hip Hop Legends, produced by Rennie Harris. Both productions ran successfully for three weeks at the prestigious New Victory Theatre in NYC. Besides performing in New York hotspots such as SOB’s and the Nuyorican Poets Café, DP One has performed on various continents, rocking shows in Colombia, South Africa, Japan, Iceland and in nearly every country in Western Europe. Currently, thanks in part to the growth of technology and the internet, DP one showcases his talent for free to the world, in the form of two internet radio shows. He is one of the resident DJ’s for The Wax Cafe on pncradio.fm from 5pm to 7pm (EST) Fridays, with host Social Ebonics. He also appears every Wednesday night on The B Side with DJ Enuff & DJ Quiz from 10pm to 12am on www.alistradio.net.

Although DP One places emphasis on showcasing the positivity that Hip Hop has to offer to the world and making sure that he is contributing to the progression of the various art forms that it encompasses, he takes this same approach to a smaller scale and strives for progression on a personal level. As a person who is constantly seeking to learn different scratch patterns, perfect a new routine, and dig through crates for hidden gems, he continues to grow and expand his knowledge and skills as a b-boy, DJ, and emcee, as styles, music, and technology evolve as well. The sky is the limit for DP One as he looks forward to nothing but bigger and better things to come in the future.

With countless DJ’s in the Sydney scene MK-1 has firmly carved out his own lane, this man simply cannot be compared.

The following recording is of a set from the Sounds of the Zulu Nation hosted by MK-1 on Bondi Beach Radio. Most of the tracks played on this particular show are all highly sought after edits of well known anthems re-arranged straight from the MASTERS.

Named by LIFE Magazine as one of the most important Americans of the 20th Century, DJ AFRIKA BAMBAATAA is a musical visionary, DJ extraordinaire, living legend and founder of the Universal Zulu Nation – a collective of socially and politically aware emcees, DJs, graffiti artists and break dancers. With over 35 years trailblazin’ around the world, Bam, as he’s affectionately known, can almost single-handedly be credited for the urban music revolution – redefining music and culture as we know it today. In fact, Bam is the person responsible for coining the term “Hip Hop” in reference to this global movement.

 

The man behind Hip Hop/Electro Funk classic ‘Planet Rock’ over the years has co-produced and performed with the likes of James Brown, George Clinton, UB40, Fort Knox Five, Leftfield, Jungle Brothers and A Tribe Called Quest among many others.

 

Bam’s futuristic soundscapes became a major influence in the development of not only hip-hop, but have also been instrumental in laying the foundation for Breaks, Electro, Freestyle, Techno and House music. “Planet Rock” has become arguably the most sampled song in music history, having been remixed and sampled by the likes of Paul Oakenfold, Westbam, George Acosta, LL Cool J, Mariah Carey and countless others. Rap/Metal band Rage Against The Machine also famously covered Bam’s track ‘Renegades of Funk’.

 

Still extremely active, Bam continues to record, tour and educate, maintaining his status as a living legend and forefather of the art. In 2006, Bam was honored for his incredible achievements by American music channel VH1 at the annual ‘Hip Hip Honors’ show and in 2007; he was nominated for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. More recently, Bam accepted an appointment as visiting scholar at Cornell University where he speaks to classes, meets with students, community groups and performs the music he helped create and expand.

 

This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to sample what a New York City Block Party is all about, live and direct from the Boogie Down Bronx! Be immersed in the knowledge of a master, icon and living treasure that is DJ AFRIKA BAMBAATAA.
