DJ Malachi’s infectious Luv Luv mix tapes have put him on the map internationally, but his reputation and radio shows have kept him thriving in the Bay Area. Although he plays all over, he still proudly calls the East Bay home. You can catch him on his radio show, Luv Luv Radio on www.alldayplay.fm every Wednesday from 10-11 am. 

Tekneek – Growing up in East Oakland around HIERO and the HOBO - Junction, being influenced by Beat Street, TEK bought his first pair of turntables and a Pyramid mixer, and began djing card games during the original side-show day at Eastmont Mall. TEK knows how to read a crowd and has the skills to elevate any party. When Tek is on the mic, his gift of gab will make a crowd of strangers feel like 200 of his closest friends.
