Rest in Peace Guru

One of the best yet

No doubt about it Gang Starr were one of the greatest and until recent years he had some great solo stuff too. Simply one of the all time best MC's, I had the pleasure of hosting him at our Jam night in 2001 and hanging out with him for the day too; he was a nice guy and down to earth compared to many of the big name rappers i've met. It's a sad day for hip-hop but i'll be paying homage at Jam on Friday at the Pavilion and on Black on Red on Saturday on Cork's RedFM

    About Me

    My Photo
    I'm a DJ from Cork in Ireland. I work with RedFM, presenting Red Drive, The Hitlist and my specialist show, Black on Red. I'm probably best known for being one of the main hip-hop/soul DJ's in Cork and Ireland. I've been DJing in Cork since the early 90's in legendary clubnights such as Sweat in Sir Henrys, Mor Disco, Free La Funk, Yo Latino and also Jam and Jam Junior at the Savoy and the Pavilion. I've also held down long term residencies at clubs around Ireland such as Brown Sugar at the Kitchen in Dublin, U-Turn at Ri Ra in Dublin, Jazz Juice at the GPO in Galway, Thompson Garage in Belfast, the Soul Clinic, Dee-Bop, Meltdown and Mo Bounce in Limerick and i've played abroad in the United States and the U.K. on numerous occasions. I also write a music column for the Evening Echo and i'm a regular contributor to the U.K.'s Blues and Soul, the longest running black music magazine in the world. These days i run the Pavilion, a music venue in Cork, which hosts my Jam night every few Fridays http://www.pavilioncork.com also you can catch me at http://djstevieg.podomatic.com
