We are taking things seriously subterranean this month with a double header of the highest order. Introducing a real house stalwart and one of New Yorks finest beatsmiths…Underground Quality’s big boss man JUS ED. Bringing the support we also have a real underground cult heroine in the form of the majestic selector…JANE FITZ.
Edward McKeithen AKA Jus Ed has represented in some form of musical output since the tender age of 6 (yes 6!) when he was kickin’ it on the beats with his grandparents from coast to coast in their jazz duo ‘Tomi & Eddy’. After hitting the books to study percussive instruments at University aged just 10, Ed had bags of experience and talent under that fledgling belt of his with his influences already stemming from the likes of James Brown, Luthor Vandross and ‘the world’s greatest drummer’ Buddy Rich. Ed’s early DJ career finished almost as quickly as it started off in 1982 but he decided to bow out in 1985. However, after a 15 year hiatus from the scene he decided to dust of those turntables and get back in to the swing of things in early 2001 as well as setting up his undeniably unique Underground Quality imprint shortly after for which he is most renowned for. Unearthing superior quality deep grooves from the likes of Anton Zap, Aybee, Nina Kraviz and Fred P as well as the 5 full length LP’s he has released himself, Ed has become a household name in any discerning record collectors bag of tricks. Adventurous in his selections and brimming with energy, we are ecstatic to have this true house legend grace the BSU stable.
Jane Fitz has long been one of our favourite selectors on planet earth. There aren’t many DJ’s who can hold our attention so fervently as she can with a continuous flow of the most obscure, flowing underground rarities that your ears will ever likely witness. A connoisseur of the finer elements within house and techno, Jane is a real DJ’s DJ if ever there was one. Plying her trade for near on 20 years, Fitz has picked up a serious cult following amongst the real heads in the underground house scene and people have travelled far and wide to get a taste of what she has in her Pandora’s box of wax.
So, 2 of the finest selectors in the business plus a sweaty little basement…what more could you want ey?
