About DJ Said

As a teenager, Said sorted after his siblings extraordinary musical interests and collections. Although at the time, the act of mixing was not his purview, he was pretty much involved in compiling music on audio tapes. Consequently, he was invited to DJ for friends who admired his incredible musical talent. On the other hand, Said was quite connected to his neighbors, Fela Kuti's organization. At that time, he was instrumental in creating a young elite audience at Shrine, the late Fela Kuti's nightclub. This marked an initiation to a world of music known as the "underground spiritual." In 1984, he moved from his hometown Lagos, Nigeria to England as a scholar. It was here that he gained a vast knowledge of the London underground scene. When Said moved to the US in 1988, he became extremely inspired by the music of legendary DJs such as Tony Humphries, Kenny Carpenter, DJ Stone, Chris Masiah, and his good friend Jerome Sydenham (Ibadan Records), who at the time was a resident DJ at NYC's club Nell's. While getting an academic business education, he continued to closely study the techniques of the aforementioned names, among others. Similarly, he maintained a strong presence in the San Francisco and New-York's underground scene. By 1995, "I was in full effect and was ready to unwrap my exceptional knowledge of music, the underground scene, including a very powerful imagination and ideal. I began residencies and guest appearances at clubs and private parties in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York and beyond. As a result of a sharp talent, I was quickly embraced and have been successful in sharing my spiritual gift and insight with friends and colleagues around the globe. To reaffirm a full dedication to the underground dance music, I launched Fatsouls, a super sonic campaign outlet, in September 1999." Fatsouls' monthly installment, Atmosfere (Registered ServiceMark) has since gained a vast and remarkable following in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Atmosfere's presentation of an extraordinary rotation of world class artist created a new nightlife scene in San Francisco that others have since attempted to emulate. Atmosfere has won the 2001 San Francisco Bay Guardian's Best of the Bay Award, and Bay Area's CitySearch.com's Editorial Award for the Best Monthly Night Club Event in San Francisco. Currently, Said is sharpening up the skills of music production with about a few releases under his belt. Keep your eyes and ears open.
