Dj SmoovGroovs Dj
Birthplace: San Jose, CA
Hometown: San Jose, CA

Musical Influence: My ear takes bits and pieces from music of all kinds in which contributes to my music. From the smooth neo soul hiphop vibes of Dwele, Slum Village, Pete Rock, Little Brother, Freddie Joachim, The Foreign Exchange, Badu, Nicolay, to the future/electronica sounds of Flying Lotus, Dam-Funk, Abjo, Onra, Vince P., to the uptempo realm of Mark Farina, Fred Everything, Lawnchair Generals, Eddie-C. On the DJ tip, my hats go off to Teeko, Shortkut, Dstrukt, Sig-O, the Bangerz, HGB.

Bio: Born and raised in San Jose, CA. DJ x Producer SmoovGroovs began his musical journey at the age of 6 when he first started taking Piano lessons. As his ear developed, SmoovGroovs grew attraction to the smooth sounds of Neo-Soul, Hip-Hop, & R&B. SmoovGroovs started to heavily build his DJ skills while attending San Diego State University from 04-09', playing at venues such as Bar Dynamite, The Office, & Red C Lounge. In 2009, SmoovGroovs returned back to the Bay Area and has started to dip into the realm of the uptempo/house scene while still holding on to his firmly rooted hiphop/soul roots. SmoovGroovs also contributes to a NPR public radio station called SnapJudgment [Story telling with a beat]. SmoovGroovs delivers style in his song selections behind their podcasts and radio show. www.snapjudgment.org

SmoovGroovs & Dstrukt Present: OVOBEVMO: A REMIX ALBUM


      

Myself and DJ Dstrukt recently put out our first ever production project together. The project includes 10 tracks — all originally produced remixes ranging from hiphop, soul, moombah, and a hint of trap. Lots of countless nights in the lab of mixing, chopping, laying down keys, and listening were put into this project. Here’s a sample of what’s on the project.

My HGBrethren Supa Koopa just put out a fresh 5 Track EP. In a nutshell, this EP integrates Samba samples, swingy drums, latin rhythms, and catchy classical guiar riffs, all pieced together to form a hip hop rooted/neux-retro version of Samba music. Good $hit Koop!

riday, March 9th
The PAGODA x D1ME in accordance with the 22nd annual Cinequest Film Festival presents 

The Pick-Up

Featuing the Pick-Up DJ’s
Sig-O & SmoovGroovs

The Pick-Up was an evening dedicated to the art of movin bodys as a weekly event that took place on Wednesdays based in downtown San Jose for just over a year from 2010 - 2011. Their cathcy slogan stated it all “Providing the bump for your mid-week slump.” Similarities through the vision of D1ME parrallel those of The Pick-Up in a sense of the higher BPM’s variation. That is to say a healthy dose of global groove, consisting of House, Funk, Future Soul-Jazz, Electronica, and for this special edition, they will look to add a lil Moombahsoul. It ain’t hard to tell, that the two gentlemen behind the creation of this dancers haven have been holding down the D1ME decks as residents too. 

Doors and Music starts at 9pm | 21 + | FREE

Frank Ocean - Thinkin’ Bout You [DStrukt & SmoovGroovs Moombahsoul RMX]

my dudes from the one and only BEVMOsj and the first few DJs to bless the decks at last call just dropped this smooth ass remix, guaranteed to get into any girl’s panties tho…. haha. a few words from the team via mixcrate:

Happy Valentines/Singles awareness day yall, myself and SmoovGroovs have been anticipating on this release for a while. Instead of doing a whole V-Day mixtape, we’ve both decided it would be best for our listeners to experience the production side of BEVMOsj. So get ready to cuddle under the sheets w/ your significant other and press play on your itunes. We present to you Frank Ocean’s “Thinking about You” with that BEVMOsj twist.
