DJ Pump - Canadian DJ Champion 2000

Calgary DJ - DJ Pump

In Calgary, the hip-hop scene began and grew into one of Canadas best with the help of a few important players, one of the most vital being DJ Pump. His relevance, influence and impact on the local scene are unparalleled. Pump is one of the few Calgary bred DJs to receive global recognition from many of the worlds most elite hip-hop DJs and turntablists. To this day he is the only Calgarian to represent Canada in the DMC World Championships. Simply put, Pump is a pillar in the foundation on which Calgary hip-hop was built and almost single-handedly put Cowtown on the turntablism map opening the doors for many to follow. myspace (www.myspace.com/djpump)

In a world full of run of the mill DJs, Pump stands out as being extremely talented and unique. Pumps abilities are surpassed by few, while his diversity stretches the boundaries of Turntablism and what it means to be a DJ. While theoretically speaking, there should be no boundaries between a Turntablist and being a DJ, many Turntablists isolate themselves into the monotony of doing three-minute routines, while forgeting the basic elements of DJing, rocking a party and mixing records. When scratching, creating beat juggles or blending beats, Pump focuses on the overall musical composition and the sound of the end result. His performances have earned him the respect amongst his peers as one of the funkiest DJ's around, as well as one of Canadas best kept secrets. Styluswars Records (www.styluswars.com)

The brash DJ Pump, who ignited a city and a country back in 2000, is most comfortable when hes rocking the crowd with his unique blend of hip hop, funk, soul, old school, disco and everything in-between using his unbounded DJing skills and talents. His no-gimmick style of skilled accuracy coupled with a distinct ear for all things funky makes him one of the nations most versatile vinyl violators. Its this balance and diversity which basically encompasses his entire being, the balance of musical value and technical skill, the balance of commercial success and underground credibility and the balance of b-boy cockiness and soft spoken humbleness.

Throughout his career Pump has received many notable awards and accolades, headlined some of the most exciting club nights around the globe and showcased alongside a myriad of hip hops elite such as Afrika Bambataa, Kool Herc, Grand Master Flash, Jazzy Jeff, Questlove, DJ Premier, A Tribe Called Quest, Snoop Dogg, Sean Paul, A-Trak, Q-bert, Rob Swift, Wu-Tang Clan, De La Soul, Beatnuts, Masta Ace, Jurassic 5, Gang Starr and Blackalicious just to name a few. Since then, hes crafted his credentials to include his highly sought-after mixtapes and CDs. This is a testament to Pumps keen ear for music, credibility and branding. One look at his resume and its no wonder why his loyal fan base continues to grow. myspace (www.myspace.com/djpump)

My Tung Ting and DJ Pump had the opportunity to throw a bash together at the Cherry Lounge for Remembrance Day 2006. Like always his Calgary music scene knowledge kept us banging all night long.

DJ AL Testa

Calgary DJ - Al Testa

This cat has been in the Calgary DJ game for over 20yrs and has been educating and leading the Calgary Scene for some time now. Currently the Friday Night DJ at Mercury Lounge he also plays down on 17th ave at Classic Jacks on Sundays. AL has killed it at many infamous Calgary Club evenings including the former Night Gallery and The Embassy. Boy were those the dayz!!!

My Tung Ting and DJ AL Testa had the opportunity to work together not only for our 6 week running bash at the Velvet Lounge, but for Rude & Dule's Infamous BLACKOUT PARTY! Great times, good peeps, and mad beats.

From hip hop to old school from break beats to house DJ AL Testa has it all and can cut it up on the 1's and 2's like very few can! Al has also created his own music and mixes that have been recognized and praised highly by the music public and his peers. Check out one of his mix sensations, Your Girl Digs My Style, and learn more about the master, Al Testa.

"Your Girl Digs My Style" is the real deal. A metaphor for Calgary's very own Mr Testa - sharp, stylish, and surly. Sure, it's been two years in the making. Sixty-two minutes in the execution. A nanosecond in the purchase of. But as Rob Gordon says in "High Fidelity," "The making of a great compilation - like breaking up - is hard to do. Takes ages. Longer than it might seem. You got to kick it off with a killer to grab their attention. Then you got to take it up a notch. But you don't want to blow your wad. So then you got to cool it off. There are a lot of rules."

From Jhelisa's tumbling heartache "Friendly Pressure;" to the frenetic midsection that squares off new school (Sharon Jones and Breakestra) against the old guard (James Brown and Dennis Coffey); to that moment when you head home, tired of feet-giddy of head, to the pop and pulse of some rare Acid Jazz by Lalomie Washburn, "Your Girl Digs My Style" takes Gordon's blueprint and adds a strain more infectious than Herpes. Mr Testa blends, drops, tweaks, and lets tracks simply breathe on sixty-two minutes of what he likes to mutter under his breath as "perfect." I think you'll second his emotion after one listen. And from then on, like the sinner in the Book of John, you may once have been blind but now you will be able to see. Sideshow Sid (http://www.musicpeople.ca/music/digsmystyle.html)
