DJ Psycho- Flint, MI
Detroit Techno Militia/Bang Tech 12/Irrational Muzikwerx
The first thing that you notice about DJ Psycho (Dezi Magby) when he plays is that he pays absolutely NO attention to the rules. Genres? Mere suggestions. Somehow he ties everything together quicker than your brain can process the method. He engages the audience in a sort of willful combat for the soul of the party. leaving you at once satisfied and begging for more. Musically knowledgeable with a flair for the dramatic, Psycho bridges the gap between the technical aspects of being a DJ and the stage antics of a rock star, all while EXCLUSIVELY using vinyl. Not many DJs have that sort of controlled chaos as their calling card these days; he is at once a throwback and the wave of the future.
A multi-instrumentalist since elementary school, Dezi began learning the craft as a result of watching an uncle DJ several family functions, and soon started DJing at elementary, junior high and high school functions, while studying music theory under the tutelage of Master Charles Fair. In 1984, he co-founded local funk band Your'z Truly with band class friends from Flint Northwestern and Northern high schools, but never strayed from the records. He closely studied videos of Grandmaster Flash, cassettes of Ken Collier mixes and radio broadcasts of Detroit legends Electrophying Mojo and Jeff "The Wizard" Mills during this period. At age 17, he brought a mix of those styles, coupled with intense musical knowledge of other genres, to local nightclubs and quickly gained the reputation of being the one man in town not afraid to play anything. In 1989, he started interning at local radio station WWCK-105.5 fm, doing commercials and eventually became the first local DJ to have his own mix show. He kept one foot in the streets, however, gaining notoriety for hip-hop production for local artists, including co-producing MC Breed's "Ain't No Future In Yo Frontin" in 1991, and playing the burgeoning rave scenes in Detroit and Flint areas. Psycho also competed in the 1990, 1991 and 1993 Midwest DMC championship battles, placing first two times and second once. He later brought his indelible hand speed and musical ability to other endeavors, becoming a member of funk-rock band Rev. Right Time and The First Cuzins of Funk in 1997, R&B/Soul band Funkilinium in 2004, and hip-hop groups Artfull Dodgers and ChipVicious in 2006 and 2010 respectably. He's been featured in publications such as High Times, Rolling Stone and Detroit Free Press, as well as his hometown Flint Journal several times.
Oliver Long - Charlotte, NC
Native of his namesake, Brian San Diego moved to the triangle six years ago and brought with him over 15 years of deep,
groovy, and jackin' house and techno. Hailing from one of the strongholds of House, his style is strongly influenced by
the intensely warm and solid sounds of the West Coast.
