GREENSKEEPERS "Live Like You Wanna Live" CD RELEASE PARTY:
File Under: House, electro
James Curd: James Curd began his DJing career in Chicago when he was only fifteen years old. Being underage, Curd was snuck into events to play at raves and clubs he was not legally allowed in. He played along side some of electronic music's most respected acts and DJs. Through his love of DJing and music Curd began to write and produce for himself. At nineteen Curd released his first track on the globally respected label "Basenotic" out of Paris. From there Curd created "Greenskeepers", a name to represent himself and the wide range of music he wrote and the artists he collaborated with.
VHS or BETA DJs: The band combines elements of French funk and dance rock. Their self-released debut, ‘Le Funk’, was a minor splash in the record charts but it wasn’t until 2004’s “Night On Fire” that the band achieved measurable success. The song is in the movie Grandma’s Boy and on The OC. The band’s members are guitarists Craig Pfunder and Zeke Buck, bassist Mark Palgy, and drummer Mark Guidry. VHS or Beta released a new album, ‘Bring on the Comets’ in August of 2007 which featured the modest alternative rock radio hit “Can’t Believe A Single Word”
Justin Miller: Employed by the iconic DFA Records by day, Justin Miller has, in many ways, become a public face for the label. He couldn't be happier to have been given the opportunity to work so closely on a day-to-day basis with the company's founding members James Murphy, Jonathan Galkin, and Tim Goldsworthy. Miller has recently spun at several MoMA openings and galas, including a special DFA "Dance Party for the Color Chart: Reinventing Color 1950 – Today" exhibition, the 2009 and 2010 Armory shows with Gang Gang Dance and The Walkmen respectively, and the benefit for Tim Burton's retrospective.

Spinning Funk, Soul, Disco, Hip-Hop, Salsa & House.
Like any truly embedded DJ in Hip Hop culture, he pays respect to an extensive list of influences including Kool DJ Red Alert and DJ Chuck Chillout, whose early radio shows he listened to, wanting to find out “how they were making that scratch sound.” To DJ DP ONE, DJ Enuff is the “Puerto Rican version of Grandmaster Flash”. DP ONE explains, “He introduced me to DMC DJ battle videos and blessed me with a lot of my foundation.”
