Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Based outta SASKATOON, SK, CHARLY HUSTLE is a DJ/Producer/Record-Collector/B-Boy/Intaker-of-fine-light-beers. He's been djing since 2002, and steadily built a fan base and a reputation for exquisite musical taste while moving butts.
In 2002 with the essential help of nationally respected DJ, the Gaff, CHARLY HUSTLE bought two turntables, a mixer and got to work learning the skills of djing/mixing/scratching. Through the magic of hip-hop, practice and well...magic, he has matured (professionally - yes, personally - mehhh) into the best DJ in Canada named after a baseball player. Period. Suck it DJ Derek Jeter.
CHARLY HUSTLE has hosted many regular nights...Most notably being the SOCIALIST at legendary indie-club, SCRATCH (R.I.P.). He was one of SCRATCH's resident DJs from the beginning and helped build it's reputation as one of the best in CANADA. That's like a whole country.
He has had the pleasure of rocking nights with some of Canada's and the world's best partyrockers...Skratch Bastid, the EH! TEAM Djs, Smalltown Romeo, the Freshest, Jayceeoh, Starting from Scratch, DJ Nu-Mark, Jazzy Jeff, the Glass, YACHT, Jon H (of Fort Knox Five), Mat the Alien, Sammy Bananas, Top Billin, Champion, DJ Pump, DJ Hedspin as well as many other talented DJs and bands.
Recently CHARLY participated in the 2012 Redbull Thre3style DJ competition. He won his qualifier in Saskatoon; Won the Prairie Regional Final in Calgary; and was Runner-up in the National Final in Halifax. That means that if revealing photos emerge of the winner, and he is not able to fulfill his duties...CHARLY's IN!
Although his first loves have always been FUNK, DISCO, BOOGIE and HIP-HOP, he is equally willing and adept at playing HOUSE, NEW WAVE, ELECTRO-FUNK and REGGAE. What we're saying here is that he does the CLUB/B-Boy/Paradise Garage thing with the best of 'em, but he also has all of the Talking Heads' records, knows how to JACK and has smoked pot like twice.
If you've seen him play, then you you've been sweaty. If you haven't, don't sweat it...you will soon.
