DJ Spair

Since 1994, Oakland Faders co-founder DJ Spair has worked hard to earn his status as one of the top ranked and most sought after Hip Hop DJ’s in the Bay Area. Best known for his party rocking and mixtape talents, DJ Spair defeated over 150 competitors and took first place in the 1999 URB Magazine Mixtape Competition. This accomplishment earned him a record deal with Stray Records. The subsequent vinyl release, 2000's Fader Beats, was a success, garnering critical acclaim and brisk sales. Unfortunatley, the label folded shortly after the EP hit the streets. Currently DJ Spair dominates the San Francisco club scene, spinning at major venues and opening for such artists as Mix Master Mike, Hieroglyphics, MF Doom, and the Roots. He’s featured on the world famous DJ Qbert’s instructional DVD, DIY Vol. 2, showcasing his flawless scratching techniques. In 2003, Spair won an acceptance into the Red Bull Music Academy in Capetown, South Africa, where he gained further recognition for his production skills and DJing abilities. DJ Spair's mixtapes have circulated all over the world, and his music can be heard on numerous releases including Streets, San Francisco from Independent Trucks, Billy Jam's Scratch Attack Vol. 3, and Bas One’s For The Mentally Astute.
