We are excited to share this event with you, we are a night called “1st Friday super jam” a funk, soul, disco, hiphop dance party started in 2001, and we are celebrating our 13 year anniversary.
Originally the night started out as a weekly event where we could hear funky jams and celebrate life over some beer. At the time, DJ Magneto (the founder of the night) was DJing at breakdance events/competitions and was heavily involved with other breakbeat based music nights around Portland.
Soon the b-boy community was involved and the soulful people in the neighborhood grooved along with the breakers and here we are, Unofficially the longest running DJ night in Portland.
For this night we bring out a long time friend and great musician, DJ Day, he has been rocking at 1st friday super jam since the beginning.
Championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson and Jazzy Jeff, DJ Day is a producer, DJ and musician from Palm Springs, California and one of the founding members of the Innernational crew. Having worked with artists such as Aloe Blacc (Stones Throw), Clutchy Hopkins (Ubiquity), and doing extensive remix work for the likes of Quantic, Alice Russell and People Under the Stairs, Day has always shown musical diversity while bringing a style all his own. He has played the world over at venues such as The Rub, The Do-Over, APT, SXSW, WMC, Choice Cuts, The Dour Festival and shared the stage with artists from Amy Winehouse to Eminem.
DJ Day was nominated for both a Pazz & Jop award in the Village Voice and Song of the Year for Gilles Pererson’s Worldwide show on BBC/Radio1. His music has been used in ad campaigns for DC Shoes, feature films and appeared on numerous compilations such as Brazilectro, Bazoo Bajou’s Juke Joint II and Brownswood Bubblers. Day has also been featured in XXL, The Fader, URB Magazine, XLR8R, Stealth Magazine (Australia), Hidden Magazine (Japan), Juice Magazine (Germany) and more.
He currently hosts a weekly party at The Ace Hotel Palm Springs and is following up his successful first full length “The Day Before” with a new album: “Land Of 1000 Chances,” out now.
