Ear Wax

Saturday, June 8 / 9:30 pm-1:30 am

/ $10

DJs StepDaddy and Fossil are the dual pillars of Nevada City’s vinyl creed. The chemistry between these two turntable samurais is like sonic poetry and with this event we will witness the evolution of a new paradigm. They’ve graduated from the long-standing tradition of Turntable Lab and have embarked upon a fresh endeavor they’re calling EARWAX. This will be an ongoing experiment delving into the furthest reaches of funk, soul, rare groove, hip hop, boogie and bounce.

On the maiden voyage here in April, it was quickly apparent that this was unlike any previous DJ event. Songs were coming at us in rapid fire secession; while maintaining organic flow and sequencing so creative, it was hard to imagine how actual humans were curating it. Much of the music was played off 45s, which made it even more dope!

Every collective project led by these cats is intended as a community gathering where people share in a collective passion for music being heard as it was intended by its creators.

In case you don’t know, StepDaddy (AKA Capt. Save-A-Show) is the co-host of KVMR’s Music Magazine on Thursdays at 4-6pm. He’s the longtime host of JIVE AF on KVMR alt, Thursdays from 10pm – 12am; Also on KVMRX Saturdays from 8 – 10pm. Fossil is a household name for the Nevada County DJ scene. There’s hardly a venue around the region that he hasn’t blown up. The synergy they create when working together is a beautiful thing to witness. These guys are perennial crowd-pleasers who will never settle for the status quo and always seek to raise the bar higher.
