Biography

DEEJAY SURESHOT BIO

The man they call ‘Sureshot’ is mostly well known for his groundbreaking and critically acclaimed hip hop meets jazz project ‘The Sharpshooters’. This highly innovative sound garnered him global recognition and led to numerous releases on the: Ubiquity, Om, Light In The Attic, Shadow, Conception, Hed Kandi and Sony labels. His music productions have been featured on: MTV, “The Wire”, “Kevin Hill”. “Sopranos”, “OZ”, ESPN and various TV commercials. In certain circles, Sureshots insane record collection AKA ‘Million Dollar Crates’ is often the topic of discussion. He is after all, responsible for 4 of the worlds rarest funk albums: ‘Betty Padgett’, ‘Turner Bros. Act 1’, ‘Lialeh’ and ‘ Wayne McGhie & The Sounds Of Joy’ getting proper legal reissues. Rumor has is that the heavily sampled and even bootlegged ‘Status Breaks And Beats’ and ‘Soundbwoy Reggae Breaks And Beats’ 5 LP series was also his crafty work.

Deejay “Sureshot” has been into music ever since he can remember. Buying records with his lunch money as a kid, he recalls purchasing a “Le Freak” by Chic 45 when he was in 5th grade. In his teen years he was turned on to 60’s Soul and Jamaican Ska through the Mod revival scene in the early 80’s. Years later he purchased the “Paid In Full” LP by Eric B. & Rakim and it truly changed his life forever. Hearing old funk given new life through hip hop, he started his quest for diggin’ up the originals that were being sampled by producers and cut up by disc jockeys.
