Dooley-O DJ SET (Connecticut, NH, USA)
Legendary Connecticut rapper producer, DJ Dooley-O is widely recognised in DJ circles as the first in Hip-Hop to sample obscure 70′s band Skull Snap. Not many people know that Stezo’s cousin Dooley-O is actually the producer who discovered the break, and was to use it for his “Watch My Moves” before Stezo beat him to the punch. Of course, the two beefed about the use, till an even bigger one came down the pike – a beef with EPMD, Stezo’s former employers (he was their dancer -yeah, there was actually a time in hip-hop’s history when that was cool).
Originally part of the Stezo crew, he fell out with them, inked a solo deal with Tavdash (one time home to R Kelly), recorded an LP between 88 & 90, but it never came out and a frustrated Dooley tossed most of the masters out. He presented the public access series Graffiti TV which sold and distributed world wide became a mentor figure to funk-curator Egon who would later head prestigious indie Stones Throw. Beat digging fiend Dooley fashioned a series of demos from his unbelievable archive of dusty gems, which caught the ear of producers like the legendary Paul C and Large Professor. Cut Chemist has been known to quote it as one of his hall of fame favourites and it still sounds funky as hell now.  Also released on Lewis Recordings to rapturous acclaim for it’s expertly helmed gritty production and everyman lyrical perspective, “I Gotcha” showed Dooley’s musical gifts, released a EP “Still Gotcha” and then released the “Lost Basement Tapes” from the early 90′s.
Owner of the Bridge Store and Tunnel Gallery as well a graffiti writer, Dooley-o continues to create and develop his street Art for the public to see. From group and solo Art shows and a feature in NY Times. Now he’s releasing his brand new album on Sleediz Records wich is full of great funky tracks to heat the crowd with many guests as Stezo, Runaway, Blacastan, Double K, Majesty, The Northern Lights & Frankie Numi.

Frankie Numi DJ SET (Strasbourg, France)
The music is his driving force for already a long time. As DJ Remsey Lef he has been a member of different French music groups and produced many beats for rappers, broadcasted a hip hop radio show and was invited as DJ for many contests and parties. During this time (ten years) he developed his style until 2008 when he came up with his own project, his EP NEAB.
The fox is his symbol, which was chosen to express his attitude of staying hidden in the background and his preference of being independent and individual. Frankie Numi has a broad knowledge in different music styles but never forgets his roots: Hip Hop. Creating new projects with rappers from the golden age of Hip Hop as well as actual, more or less known, rappers from all countries is his motivation. The topic of his music is the old-school Hip Hop which he combines with elements of other genres and transforms to a contemporary sound. His first EP “Never ending always building in Jazz Soul Funk” released on Sleediz Records “NEAB” was a lifetime mission. It combines the elements of Jazz, Soul and Funk with the Hip Hop beats of the 90s.
The variety of his music is also displayed by the list of artists he worked with: Prince Po (US), Count Bass D (US), Wildchild (US), Insight (US), Laws (US) & Suika (JP). These international guests were chosen to diffuse the project “NEAB” around the world using music as the common language. According to him music has its own voice and this is the way to transmit his emotions to the audience. Thanks to his creativeness and his large network of various artists he has just started to realise some of his ideas but there are thousands left, so he always keeps on moving!
