About

DJ Wardove is an electronic underground artist, music producer, and private IT consultant from Coal Hill, AR (now in Portland/Gresham, Oregon, USA). He is an original member of the Wardove Family, an underground music collective/hip-hop crew that was founded in the general interest of creating free recordings with the artists CydeCovert (of The Earwigs & the PHORX), Savage Systems, and Oxygen Elmo (of the Mediocre Masters of Ceremony AKA Mediocre MCs, PHORX, & Hatecrime) and other members of the Portland/Gresham underground. They never released any official recordings as a collective but many of their materials were folded into later projects. Although many of its members still maintain contact and occasionally work on projects together the collective's nature began to change with time and gradually dissolved in or around 2008. In 2010 DJ Wardove co-founded the net label 'smell sign discs' in Portland, Oregon and went on to produce several albums with his friend and frequent collaborator Oxygen Elmo who left the management of this label in his hands and is concurrently engaged in the creation of a new underground cassette label as well as the further pursuit of his own paintings.

DJ Wardove's name is referential to his experiences as a former member of 'The Wardove Family' (the underground music collective/hip-hop crew mentioned above), the hip-hop/punk DIY aestheticism he intends to evoke, heavy use of 'discs' as media, his roots as a veteran of the U.S. Army, and the fact that he closely identifies himself as a member of the 'hip-hop' generation despite whatever genre or sub-genre he may be producing in, the color of his skin, or ethnic background.
