Hellow friends…out and about, thanks for all the support;)

Deep Down by Wes Smith

Combine funky synth leads with club shaking bass and what you end up with is Deep Down. The Califunkya Mix is an A grade banger that features some serious firepower. With a change of the pace in the Califournya joint, switching it up with some booty shakin’ wub action.

Sound the alarm, “Get Hyped” is here. A Summer 2016 sonic assault with two ragga heavy riddas. The Califunkya mix breaks thing up with that funky flavor as the Califournya ride straightens things up for the four on the floor crew.

Stoked to have my latest out on Dog Eat Dog Records.  Release notes below…

“Every Move I Make” is nothing short of a Califunkya bass banger with excellent transitions, great vox hooks on top of a excellent horn riff. The 2nd half build comes drop with a chunky bassline to change up the lead & an added syncopated percussion riff to make this one a DEDRockin gem!

The G-Spot is on the Loose | Check out the Interview, Release and Other Fun;)

My remix for G$Montana’s “G-Spot” dropped this week on Gigabeat Records.  The original was written by Geo Lopez aka G$Montana of Project Mayhem (Miami).  Geo and I first met @ WMC 2014 when I played his Gimme A Break Pool Party.  Since then we’ve played a few fun parties together and worked for some of the same promoters.

Kelly Ross/Agent 137 recently ported herself down to Miami to talk with Geo about what it means to be a promoter-turned-DJ/producer and how he finally came up with G Spot.  Check the interview below.

Hi Geo, I know it was your birthday last week, tell me about the weekend:

It was awesome and the first time I had an really awesome birthday in a very long time because it fell on a weekend. On Friday I played the “Breaks Yo” party in Miami where I played early enough to have a good time and late enough to have a great crowd. It was a night of entertaining people and networking – it was crazy. Martin Flex ripped it the fuck up, TwoSweet of the Geishas was a beast, she just made it happen. Then on Saturday I went to Tampa for Revelation where I got to play and also watch Wes Smith absolutely crush it.

When I met you it was in Miami back in 2013, you hosted a Hotcakes/Essential Bass show that was my Miami debut. How did you get into hosting shows?

I was into throwing parties way back in the day and my birthday was coming up so i met with a club owner. I convinced the him that I could bring 100 people to the club for my birthday, so he gave me the side room. I offered to pay him and I packed it out, so eventually he gave me the other room so I put in drum & bass and breaks. People were buying bottles so I sparked it up again and then the club owner gave me all five rooms (jungle, electro breaks, house, etc). The event went on until the venue was sold. It started with a birthday party and became a real business. Then this other production company came up and saw I had drive, motivation and ambition so they asked me to do an event at a new venue. I grabbed it and said I can make it happen. I/O Lounge in the center of Miami right near Space. I did my first major party called Masters of Mayhem there with a ridiculous lineup of 45 artists, the line was down the sidewalk with 2700 people inside. From there we started Project Mayhem, a spin off of that party with Mike aka Malo to become a Miami entertainment promotions agency.

Suddenly, the phone gets muffled and Geo yells out: 

Hold up, hold up, as I explain the rules- let me play you a piece :

 

… sirens wail… breakbeat starts… shake shake…shake…rahhhhhhh!!!

 

This continues for about three minutes only broken by him asking if I can hear it. We laugh, he apologizes, asks me if I like the new tune and when i approve, he tells me to continue.

 

That’s my new track vs Neuroziz. We are putting in my flavor and he is putting in his flavor and we are shaking it up. Working together is fun to meld our sounds together. So far I am liking what I am hearing. Sorry, go ahead…

Perfect segway, Geo, tell me how you got started with djing & production:

I had been in the scene since 1997 – during that time i would always walk up to the DJ and ask them how they made it happen. I was interested in promoting and creating events but would always go to studios and ask my friends all kinds of questions on how things work.

At some point I figured I might as well start djing, all my friends I had met as a promoter, like Eddie Light and Phat Kidz, were all sending unreleased tracks, so I starting DJing 2 years ago after WMC [Winter Music Conference]. I bought my first pair CDJS and a flight case on Craigslist, I wanted to play out with the people that had become family to me and I started playing with them.

Geo mic

As an agency i would tell artists to create an identity but also to go beyond djing and make their own beats. Djing alone doesn’t mean you are gonna make it big and it would be critical not to produce after I told all my friends and artists they needed to produce. I realized I needed to get serious and need to make this happen so I spent months and months in the studio learning. I do my main job during the day, run into the studio all night, fall asleep and do it all over again. It took me 4 months to make the track, but I finished that original then shot it off to Wes Smith. He remixed it and here we are… Regardless, I feel like I have big shoes to fill because I have seen all these artists all my life and hung out with them, but I have to be a producer and dj well. I expect no handouts, I want to learn and get opinions to make sure I am following in the footsteps of others, I still have to prove myself.

Talk to me about G Spot:

It’s on the label Gigabeat and will release Oct 20th. Micheal Anthony Lauzardo (aka Malo aka slip 187 knew me from the start). My choice for the remix was my favorite producer Wes Smith. His style is different with a funk flavor that is just wow. I’m really excited about it’s release.

What’s next for Geo Lopez/G$Montana? Will I be meeting up with you again in Miami for WMC?

Yes! After coming off tour in San Diego for Wiggle (thank you Wes Smith and Omega Squad) and St Louis (thank you XeroTribe) and playing in Florida, I’m back in the studio again. My goal is to have 6 finished tracks by March for the WMC events so I can play half of my own set and the other half my fav artists. One of the greatest pleasures is when an artist you look up to plays your tune it’s so humbling and such and honor, you want to run up and say thank you so much. Like Wes Smith did at the Tampa show this weekend. I got to sit back and observe from a different perspective than just djing it and the reaction was great- so very very appreciate of that.

What’s for next : Oct 23rd Breaks Yo! and I just joined Theoryon Records as my new booking agency, Gary Gitlin works hard and makes it happen, I’m proud to be a part of the family.

All the <3.
