DJ Platurn (Oakland) On The Main Ingredient May 1st!

DJ Platurn of the Oakland Faders, who I first DJed with in San Francisco back in 2006 (damn, has it been that long?) is going to come through the EVR studio Monday night, after spinning an early all-45s set at the Mobile Mondays party at Bowery Electric.

You can read his full bio here but here’s a snippet:

“…voted Oakland’s best DJ by the East Bay Express and winning Scions’ “Free Up Your Mix” competition along with fellow Oakland Fader DJ Spair, Platurn has devastated crowds from coast to coast and internationally, and in doing so, he’s shared the stage with folks like Z-Trip, Krs-One, Mixmaster Mike, The Beat Junkies, DJ Premier, Slick Rick, Maseo (De La Soul), ZionI, Jazzy Jay, Quest-Love(The Roots), M.F. Doom, A-Trak, Afrika Bambaata, Pete Rock, and a whole bunch more.”
