DJ COLLAGE (Masse-One, Jam Jam - Seattle)
Since early 2002, the raggamuffin voice of DJ Collage has been a rising sound within the electronic music community worldwide. His vocal performances have been featured on top Viennese records by the Sofa Surfers, Stereotyp, I- Wolf & Megablast. He also has had collaborations with Berlin based breakbeat duo- Dangerous Drums, LA based producer- 60 Channels and the original breakbeat electronica master- Meat Beat Manifesto. With these collaborations, Collage has been able to fuse his dancehall vocal flavor with abstract dub, breakbeat, house, drum & bass and still nice up straight dancehall parties. He has also performed live extensively throughout the US, Canada & Europe. DJ Collage began his musical journey by chatting on reggae soundsystems and with live reggae bands throughout the Midwestern US and Canada in the early nineties. He then relocated to California in 92' and began work with selectors and bands around the Bay area. Currently, Collage is living in Seattle and does many performances in the Pacific Northwest area.
Before he left the Bay Area in 2003, DJ Collage performed at many UK Garage & 2-Step events alongside local DJs Mikebee, Jus Wan, Subtek, Jamin Creed and DJ Science. Nuff said... Go and check out di man called DJ Collage at the next Grime City!
