Greetings WERDos... We have a treat for you this week, as we are graced by the sweet music of Lips & Rhythm's founding father Mr Jesse Sizmo, who will all also be celebrating another trip around the sun. It's a Sizmo birthday celebration with the Lips & Rhythm and WERD crew! Joining the Birthday Boy is Shuffle Co-op's Alex Lin. WERD.
Alex Lin (Shuffle Co-op / San Francisco) is interested in exploring the disparate sounds, spaces, memories, and experiences that come together to form our contemporary dance music scene. He's just as at home playing heady acid workouts, diva house stompers, or washed detroit grooves, as taking asides into funk, r&b, disco, breaks, and soul. He's been lurking around the underground, doing parties with Shuffle Co-op, Unaverz, Lips & Rhythm, and Sure Thing. His favorite color at the moment is burnt orange.
Jesse Sizmo is resident DJ and host of weekly radio program, Lips & Rhythm. Each week guest artists get to explore a wider range of dance music and share it live with the audience. The show broadcasts out of Radio Valencia, a radio co-op based in San Francisco, California. He also runs Lips & Rhythm Records, an imprint launched by him and his partner Soleil that focuses on like-minded artists creating a warmer blend of dance music. There have been a series of wild day parties, hosted quarterly, featuring a colorful cast of characters that are helping shape the label. Above all, Jesse Sizmo is an instigator with an ear for outlandish sounds that have timeless appeal.
