Editorial Review

DJ Day's solo releases are breezy constructions of jazz loops, beat breaks and sample collages that are the audio equivalent of his native California sunshine. Those records only touch the surface of a DJ who can play every position on the court. He's got hand skills on the cut that match up with top turntablists and a remixing touch that ranges from People Under the Stairs' underground hip-hop to Tittsworth's club bangers. DJ Day is also touring with DJ Exile, performing intricate live sets with dueling MPC drum machines. You can get a taste of DJ Day the party rocker when he touches down at Eighteenth Street Lounge tonight.
