My name is DJ Suave. I mainly spin underground hip-hop, particularly boom bap and turntablism. I have always prided myself on finding the dope tracks that few others are spinning. I have been a DJ since college at UCSB back in one of the golden eras of hip-hop during the mid-1990s. I cut my teeth as a DJ in 1994 at KJUC-AM in Santa Barbara before moving over to KCSB-FM in Santa Barbara from 1995-1996.
I later spun an underground hip-hop show on Live365.com from 2000-2003 called Blue Galaxy Underground Radio. That show was similar to the current show, except I now spin many more new tracks than I used to. After a 7-year hiatus from spinning, I returned to start this radio show in 2010. My influences are DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Rob Swift, DJ Scratch, Large Professor, Q-Tip, KRS-One, Dr. Dre, Buckwild, Eazy E, Audible Doctor, JMega, Nutso, DJ Grazzhoppa, DJ Q-Bert, DJ Babu, Statik Selektah.
