With residencies almost every night of the week throughout the Bay Area, the Oakland Faders have established themselves as a staple in the Bay Hip Hop community. The Oakland Faders got together in 1994 and has since gone on to win numerous competitions and awards including Scion Free Up Your Mix, URB magazine’s mixtape competition, a Mixwell competition, toured internationally, and have shared a bill with everyone from M.F Doom to Maseo to Melvin Sparks to Madlib to Mixmaster Mike to Marvin Holmes. Connect the dots and you will understand why the Faders are keeping the lost art of hip hop scratch and sample djing alive.
DJ Spair and DJ Platurn have just added another mix to their arsenal of 16+ catalog, Slot Machine Slappers. The Faders have been nice enough to grace GurpCity.net with a preview of their upcoming album. Stay tuned for info on where you can grab a copy.
