DEE J A’LA FU

North, way north went a kid by the name of Dee J A’la Fu. Learning his trade and reaching such diverse places as California, Montenegro, London, Israel, Australia, Scotland, N.Y.C. and Hawaii, A’La Fu has performed, recorded and released material since ‘93. Inspired early on by touring, supporting and sharing the stage with the likes of Gil Scott Heron, Schooly D, DJ Krush and De La Soul, he soon became involved in numerous projects from DJ workshops, to guest spots on radio shows such as Ninja Tune’s ‘Solid Steel’, the BBC’s Selector/World Service programme and their digital off-shoot station 1 Xtra. Mr. Fu has also illustrated the art of DJing via the wonder of television alongside Hip-Hop pioneer/originator DJ Kool Herc, competed against the Scratch Perverts at the first ever DMC Team Finals and later performed for the Perverts at 2002’s Glastonbury festival.

Recent runnings have included close work with the Big Dada / Ninja Tune record labels, remix duties for Coldcut and Saul Williams, a contribution to Big Dada’s ‘Extra Yard’ compilation and of course more Dj’ing, including live stints with Roots Manuva, New Flesh, Infinite Livez and plenty of worldwide touring shenanigans with New York’s Mike Ladd. He’s also found time to turn his well received series of ‘Radio Skool’ mix CD’s into a monthly club/live showcase, entertaining special guests as diverse as Prince Paul, Andy Votel, Roots Manuva, The Sugarhill Gang and Keb Darge.

DON KAZEK

Originally from Polska but born in a castle in Stirling, the Don studied classical and jazz guitar from the tender age of eight. At ten he was forced to study formal composition and orchestration by his mad opera-singing grandmother. Having finally escaped the clutches of the eccentric older lady, he found himself drawn to electrical engineering before returning to his first love – the study of music.

After teaching guitar for a number of years, he eventually moved on to providing soundtracks for numerous short features and animation projects before embarking on his current labour of love . . . his first album proper under the We Yo Nee banner.
