Portland-based DJ and industry innovator, DJ Gigahurtz, will host a birthday celebration for himself that will showcase eleven top Northwest DJs, including Gigahurtz himself, and Hip Hop talent from Portland, Seattle and New York. The red carpet event will take place Wednesday, May 2, 9:00 p.m. - 2:00 a.m. at Club H2O, located at 204 SW Yamhill Street in Portland, Oregon. It will feature sets by DJ O.G. One, DJ Playtime, DJ Nature, DJ Juggernaut, DJ Deathtouch, DJ Evil One, DJ CY Style, DJ Paradox, DJ Matrok, DJ Rising Sun and DJ Gigahurtz as well as special appearances by Seattle Hip Hop/R&B group Steelo, Portland’s own Auzriel, Billboard Top Ten artist T-Weaponz and Ms. Kaila Yu.
“This is more than a birthday celebration. This event brings diverse talent together and in conjunction with the work I do with VinylBreakers and Bumsquad DJs, I really feel it will help to raise the profile of the Northwest's urban music scene, which is my main goal.” Explains Gigahurtz, a Portland native now residing in Vancouver, Washington.
Recently appearing at Diddy’s 2007 Super Bowl party in Miami, DJ Gigahurtz is one of the leading influences of the digital music movement. Spinning exclusively mp3s since 2002 at the hottest clubs in the Northwest and Las Vegas, he is founder of vinylbreakers.com, a record pool that sits on an entirely digital platform, and sits on the Board of Directors of the Bumsquad DJs, a national DJ coalition with members from around the world.
An official MySpace DJ and part of the European DJ League, Gigahurtz’ star is rising. Much more than a beat doctor, his ingenuity, entrepreneurial spirit and talent for buzz marketing has landed him promotional work for corporate giants such as Nike Soccer and Nike Women.
His love of music is innate but his devotion to DJing started in his dorm room at La Sierra University in Riverside, California, when a friend introduced him to the basics; beat-matching, juggling and scratching. Gigahurtz didn’t stop there. He incorporated his computer skills and love of technology, and immediately set himself apart; recognizing a DJ that could rock a crowd from a computer would be the wave of the future.
You can catch Gigahurtz on Saturday nights at the Vintage 318 in Portland, Oregon and on swurvradio.com where he mixes and hosts “Gigzster Mix” a show on with thousands of subscribers and downloads per month.
