A legend in the DJ world, Cut Chemist is one the most respected and innovative DJs of all-time. An original founding member of both Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli. Cut Chemist has revolutionized turntablism with experimental sampled-based performances since the early 90s. He has headlined the Hollywood Bowl, and performed around the world from Coachella to Tokyo and from Dubai to the Bronx. He was the first DJ to develop a cut ‘n’ scratch audio visual performance. His groundbreaking album 'Sound of the Police' was performed live using only one turntable, a mixer, a loop pedal and all original vinyl pressings of Ethiopian, Colombian, Sudanese and Afro-Brazilian music. His recent tour, Renegades of Rhythm, celebrated the legacy of hip-hop vanguard Afrika Bambaataa, featuring a 6 turntable performance of Bambaataa's record collection in collboration with DJ Shadow.

A devastating live performer, the MdCL experience is marked by impromptu studio production created on stage from scratch using drum machines, keyboards and live effects. The end result: unique remixes birthed live on stage for each and every gig. With upcoming releases for Fania Records, his eclectic mash of jazz, club, and dance music make him a very unique live performance and perfect addition to the night.
Banginclude (NY / Enchufada)
Banginclude is a long-time friend of the Calentura fam and has been dubbed the "Global Booty King" for his hip-shaking inducing beats. His productions take influence from everything from Zouk Bass, Baile Funk, Jersey Club, Moombahton and more! He recently remixed the title track for the Geko Jones-compiled Fania Records album "Ralfi Pagan" Latin Soul Remixed". Watch the music video here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNypVeXLmPQ

Cut Chemist has been recording and performing for over twenty years. He started dj'ing in 1984, at age 11 years old. In 1987 aged 14 Cut started recording with his friends including Chali 2na (Jurassic 5). Cut first became known as a founding member of both the rap group Jurassic 5 and the Grammy award winning Latin funk outfit, Ozomatli. Keeping his involvement with both groups in tandem with one another, Cut has developed a taste for music and rhythms from around the world while keeping his ethic for the hip hop tradition. His mix-tapes and remixes became critically acclaimed. His 'Chemist' moniker was fully realized with his instrumental, Lesson 6: The Lecture. A musical journey that challenged hip hop production with music theory ideals. Cut also found time to collaborate with DJ Shadow on what would be one of the worlds most sought after mix cd's, Brainfreeze, soon to be followed by its sequel, Product Placement.
Mark de Clive-Lowe (MdCL) is one of the most innovative producers and live performers you will find anywhere.
Whether you call him artist, producer, composer, pianist, performer, DJ, or selecta, titles are impartial to the marvel of Mark de Clive-Lowe (MdCL). Many try to classify this impressively fertile music journey, yet to identify with only one label belies the heavy scope of the ride. The piano set the course, the keyboard is the vehicle, and with the drum machine as the fuel, the relentless skill of MdCL is underscored by a rare sonic sensibility. He's an accomplished musician, originally sowing his oats in straight-ahead jazz, before taking the music far beyond. Anchored by the duality of his Japanese and New Zealander parentage and ignited by a love of playing piano at the age of four, it is no wonder this multi-national phenom has seen his explosive natural gifts blaze across the globe from NZ to the US, UK, Europe, Asia and Cuba.
A devastating live performer, the MdCL experience is marked by impromptu studio production created on stage from scratch, using drum machines, keyboards and effects. The end result: live remixes birthed on stage for each and every gig. With bold chops like this, to call him "prolific" is an understatement, having contributed to over 250 releases and being a first-call collaborator for a wide range of artists, including Jill Scott, Jody Watley, Leon Ware (Marvin Gaye/Michael Jackson/Maxwell), Dame Shirley Bassey, Sandra St. Victor (The Family Stand/Chaka Khan), amongst a slew of others.
Currently based in LA after a decade entrenched in London, MdCL is ready to unveil his audacious new album, Renegades on Tru Thoughts Records with guest appearances that include Sheila E (Prince), Omar, Pino Palladino (D'Angelo/The Who), and nia andrews. It's the latest step in the evolution of MdCL, who has cemented his reputation as the go-to man for anyone wanting his unique take on club music, progressive soul and urban alternative. The new LP features club classics flavored from soul and funk, to tech-Afrobeat and Latin twists, all orchestrated by MdCL: a revolutionary Quincy Jones for a new generation, armed with the ability to meld the science of beat-making with the fluidity of composed music.
MdCL's potential is beyond convention. He's one who can take it all on the road like no one else, with a solid fan base that bridges cities as far reaching as LA, NYC, Atlanta, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Tokyo and Sydney.
