DJ SHORTKUT, San Francisco – MySpace.com - Shortkut - 102 - Male - Daly City, CALIFORNIA - www.myspace.com/djshortkut - Invisibl Skratch Piklz / Beat Junkies / Triple Threat DJ’s

No other DJ in the world will ever be a member of the three most innovative and influential DJ crews to ever exist. As a member of the Invisibl Skratch Piklz, Beat Junkies and Triple Threat DJs, Shortkut’s contributions to the DJ world greatly assisted in building this culture into the multi-million dollar industry it is today. His years of musical experience and unparalleled presence in the national and international circuits exemplifies his passion and dedication to a culture he helped create. In 2008, Shortkut celebrates 21 years as a DJ, producer, DJ equipment designer, and battle champion.

Shortkut began his DJ career in 1987 with Just 2 Hype!, a mobile DJ soundsystem based out of Daly City, California. In the early 90’s, Shortkut, Q-Bert and Mixmaster Mike, formed the Invisibl Skratch Piklz, a legendary turntable band that led a new era in the DJ/turntablist world. The Invisibl Skratch Piklz went on to become the most influential DJ crew of all time. In 1994, Shortkut was invited to join the internationally acclaimed collective, The Beat Junkies. Since Shortkut’s addition to the group, he has diversified the Beat Junkie audience. In 1999, Shortkut, along with world DJ battle champions Apollo and Vinroc, founded the Triple Threat DJs. These DJs all shared the same philosophy of combining raw turntable skills for the hardcore, while satisfying dancefloor crowds. This musical philosophy exploded with the birth of the Triple Threat DJs, and is now what DJs around the world follow today.

Throughout his career, Shortkut has made numerous contributions to the DJ culture. His involvement with seminars and tutorials in techniques and DJ history helps develop aspiring DJs and turntablists from middle schools to college classrooms worldwide. He was also a key designer of the Vestax 05 Pro, which became the best-selling mixer of the Japan-based Vestax mixer line.

Shortkut claimed numerous titles, notably the 1994 and 1998 US/West Coast DMC Championships. He has also been featured in prized national and international publications including Rolling Stone, Scratch, and VIBE. His talent has taken him to almost every continent, in which he showcases his performance/mixing DJ style to crowds - many of whom were introduced to the artform for the first time. In 2001, Shortkut appeared alongside Rob Swift and actress Shannon Sossamon for a GAP clothing commercial that aired worldwide.

Shortkut’s diverse selection in music, combined with turntablist roots makes him one of the world's premier DJs. He has the creative ability to fuse many styles, which enables him to play for various audiences. Influences such as Rob Swift, Q-Bert, and his DJ crewmembers have contributed to Shortkut's well-rounded DJ style.


** SPECIAL VIDEO / VISUAL SHOW **

Countries that have Shortkut playing in their cities in the coming months will experience a new and thrilling visual show. Shortkut recently added an exciting visual element to his DJ sets and performances. With the numerous advancements in music technology, Shortkut has enhanced his sets with visuals that complement his musical selections. These visuals, made up of a collection of classic and new music videos, will keep the crowds highly engaged. The crowds will now be able to see how Shortkut mixes and manipulates the songs, as the video mixing and video manipulation will be in sync with how he controls the turntables. With the addition of the visual element to his DJ sets, Shortkut continues to innovate and lead in progressing the art of DJing.
