Steinski



Steinski in dialog with our hosts and let loose in our studios to play his latest (2011) mixes. A legend in his own time, the man has followed an adventurous path: college dropout and obsessed record collector, DJ, advertising copywriter, promoter, creative consultant, and producer.

Important? Here's one story: with partner Double Dee (Douglas DiFranco), Steinski co-produced the series of records known as The Lessons: The Payoff Mix, Lesson 2 (The James Brown Mix), and Lesson 3 (The History of Hip-hop) for the Tommy Boy label. These analog tape cut-and-paste collages, still widely bootlegged (and wildly illegal), are generally acknowledged as three of the most influential works in the history of hip-hop and dance music production. These creations are cited as "definitive" by DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, and Fatboy Slim.
