New Jersey’s Finest Dj Punch makes his debut on the label with the slamming release entitled “The Baby Powder Traxx E.P” out now.
Pick it up !!
New Jersey DJ/producer DJ Punch is dropping a giant three track EP destined to send the dancers into a frenzy. From his hypnotizing ruthlessly thumpin’ take on the monumental Patrick Cowley remix of the Donna Summer classic “I feel love”, over the respectful laidback four-to-the-floor rework of John Legend’s cover of Adele’s “Rolling in the deep” to the super sweet 4/4 makeover of Regina Belle’s slow jam “Baby come to me”, this is pure dance floor heaven…
Review by Mike Fossati
Born in Newark, New Jersey, Punch grew up in an environment rich with soulful music. Back in the day, he was influenced by his father who was a drum player and his uncle who played conga in a authentic big band In the mid 70′s, Punch began hanging out with big name DJ’s such as DISCO CHUCK who worked with RICHARD LONG, KELLY who owned CLUB SENSATIONS, MARK 4 DISCO, G.O.L.D. PROD., MR C DISCO and FUNKY BILL DISCO. Punch looked up to these guys whom took him under their wings and showed him the art of being a DJ.
Through these experiences, Punch began to make a name for himself and he began doing parties with a group of friends calling themselves GENTLEMEN OF NEPTUNE DISCO. Initially, they specialized in High School dances and House Parties. It was at this point when Punch started being influenced by NIGHT CLUBS and he encountered a whole new world thru SUPER CLUBS such as CLUB ZANZIBAR, PARADISE GARAGE, CLUB SENSATIONS, DOCKS, THE CHEETAH CLUB and CLUB BLACK BOX.
Eventually, Punch’s dream of DJing at these super clubs came true and he took his DJ career to the next level. While he was DJing at the clubs he met a soon-to-be production partner, DJ SHANK. They came together with P & S PRODUCTION and began throwing wildly eclectic mobile parties at TWIN CITY ROLLER RINK, ZANZIBAR, CLUB SENSATION & THE CHEETAH CLUB (just to name a few).
Punch then hooked up with an old friend, MR. PAUL SCOTT, who took both Punch and Shank under his wing and taught them about Production and Studio work. They began working out of CLUB SENSATIONS STUDIO and called themselves B.O.P. PRODUCTION and the rest is history.
Punch is still doing his thang. He hooked up with his cuzin Flip of “FLIP ENTERTAINMENT” and they are currently throwing the BIGGEST and HOTTEST PARTIES in NEW JERSEY utilizing their RICHARD LONG SOUND SYSTEM and the parties are called “BABY POWDER”. The name speaks for itself !
