About DJ Nu-Mark

Juassic 5 // Blend Crafters


Los Angeles, CA

Nu-Mark began DJing as a teenager in Los Angeles. Over the course of the last two decades, he has amassed a collection of over 35,000 records and refined his technical skills and performance style to the point where he is widely recognized as one of the key figures in the late-90s DJ explosion that pushed the DJ to the front of the culture’s awareness. He has been featured in a diversity of publications and in several films: the critically acclaimed documentary “Scratch,†“KeepinTime†(which features impromptu collaborations with Mad Lib, Cut Chemist, Babu, J-Rocc, and drummers James Gatson and Paul Humphrey), “Coachella: The Movie,†and “Rock the Bells – The Documentary.†His innovative DJ routines and creative on-stage antics have made him a favorite of crowds all over the world. Nu-Mark revels in surprising an audience with a forgotten gem, an unknown banger, or a fresh take on a well-known hit. From Sao Paolo to Sydney, from Toronto to Tokyo, Nu-Mark’s carefully crafted, explosively energetic DJ sets never fail to get a party rocking!

A member of the gold-selling hiphop collective Jurassic 5, Nu-Mark is responsible for half of the production of Jurassic 5’s entire body of work: Jurassic 5 EP (1997), Quality Control (2000), Power In Numbers (2002), and Feedback (2006). His most famous J-5 joints are the raw anthem “What’s Golden†and the smooth and soulful “Work It Out†featuring Dave Matthews. Known for their thrilling stage show, Jurassic 5 toured the globe several times over, and have made numerous television appearances. With Jurassic 5, Nu-Mark has performed at many of the world’s most important and exciting music festivals – Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza 2003, Australia’s Big Day Out, The UK’s Reading Festival, and Japan’s Summer Sonic – where his mastery of a complex, six-piece DJ rig and his playful incorporation of children’s musical toys have amazed and delighted crowds of up to 50,000 fans. Jurassic 5 has appeared alongside some of the biggest names in music, including: A Tribe Called Quest, the Wu-Tang Clan, Outkast, The Roots, Run DMC, Green Day, and even Bruce Springsteen.

Nu-Mark has also released his own projects: Blend Crafters, an instrumental album created in the spirit of allowing beats to speak for themselvesl and Hands On, a mix CD. Hands On assembles a diverse and eclectic set of sounds, everything from soulful breaks to comedic skits, as well as classic underground jams, and includes a special section devoted to hip-hop from around the world. By turns hilarious and impressive, this project displays both Nu-Mark’s eccentric sense of humor and his devotion to solid, simply dope music. Currently, Nu-Mark is placing his beats on a number of projects in a variety of genres.

About God Made Me Funky



Toronto based God Made Me Funky (GMMF) is a funky live ensemble, comprised of a diverse array of musicians ranging from a classically trained Jazz artist to street schooled Hip-Hop and RnB vocalists. With a common bond of moving crowds with their infectious energy, the band consists of Vocalists - Kaybe (Snow, Just Cool) and Lynzie Kent, Rapper - PHATT al (Len, Raggadeath), Keys - Danny Argyle, Bass - Cam Dougall (Graph Nobel, King Latifah), Guitar - Rich Grossman (Jimmy`s Groove), Trumpet - Benji Perosin (Directions), Sax - Arthur Kerekes (Monkey), and Drums - Alan Witz (Funky Hi-Life, Directions), who all share the passion of bringing the "Nu-Funk" sound into the next millennium.

Formed in 1996, GMMF started out as an instrumental funk fusion experiment. As the bands popularity grew, vocalists were added to increase the range of songs the band could cover. Influences including Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Sly and the Family Stone, Michael Jackson, Jamiroquai, the Roots, Afrika Bambatta, and D`Angelo were remixed with a `new school` sound, defining the bands unique style.

The band has further developed the NuFunk revolushun with the release of their third album `Enter The Beat` (2008). An eclectic mix of old school hip-hop with a new school twist; funk, rap, rock, and RnB come together to produce the band's "NuFunk" genre. GMMF continues to expand their musical reach with the first single, also titled "Enter The Beat", currently being featured in the new Coors Light media campaign.


About Big League Chu



Colin Chu, better known as Big League Chu, is simply the leading DJ talent in Canada's breakbeat scene today. After over a decade of DJing, his name is synonymous with the funky, party-happy sound - and it's one that crowds answer faithfully whether it's at his residencies at Toronto's legendary Breakfest events, The Make It Funky Jams, or the large one-off shows that Toronto boasts. In a city renowned as one of North America's largest party scenes, Chu has played alongside the worlds finest, allowing him to develop his own distinct style of breaks. Chu's sets can vary from hard beats to melodic funky down tempo sounds, but always remains a crowd mover. Chu is a mainstay for Toronto's largest party companies like Metro Productions (Kickit and Out of Hand), Lifeforce Industries (Dose, Syrous and Renegades), Empire, and Liquid Adrenaline. Chu is working on tracks again in the studio as we speak, so keep your ears to the ground on upcoming new beats!


Make It Funky was founded in 2005, when like-minded heads frustrated by the Toronto scene set out to create a party that could help the city put the funk back in its rump. What has help set Make it Funky apart is the combination of live band sets with a focus on DJs as a headliner, a move that has helped to create a fresh new cross over scene with an open-minded attitude. Make it Funky’s mission is to explore the funkier side of all things breakbeat. MiF promises and always delivers an exceptional night of music, dancing and good fun, with a focus on bringing the cutting edge of funk, breaks, hip hop, and beat-driven live music to the masses. Just a few of Make It Funky’s many highlight performers include: Afrika Baambaataa, Z-Trip, Krafty Kuts, The Herbaliser, Fort Knox Five, Ursula 1000, Killa Kella, and DJ A.Skillz and we are just getting started!
