Former member of Prince and the New Power Generation, Philip Lassiter is a household name inthe music industry and 7 time Grammy Award Winning arranger. To attempt to truly define the bombastic brilliance of this jazz trumpeter turned singer-songwriter would be like trying to catch a bear with a mousetrap.
A multi-faceted, multi-instrumentalist, Philthy's piano is his pulpit as he commands the stage with the bravado of a revolutionary.
With the best backing band in Los Angeles as his army, it’s an invasion of the senses that leaves your body aching for more and your feet tapping the beat for days to come.
Traversing America introduced Philthy to a cavalcade of artists who would help shape his musical career. Aged 6 he unwittingly met hisfirst love - the piano - and began belting out Amazing Grace like no other kidin Mobile, Alabama. Being the son of a preacher - a man “who sweated everyounce until he was red in the face” - Philthy learned how to captivate anaudience and he’s taken that spirit on his own unique mission ever since.
Two decades of gospel, soul, R&B, funk, jazz and salsa sounds were colliding ideas inside Philthy’s brilliantly twisted mind like a tornado fighting a hurricane. 8 years in Dallas, TX were to bring these inspirations to life, under the wing of some of the most talented cats on the planet. Bernard Wright, Bobby Sparks, Keith Anderson and so many others messed up his mind in the best possible way, as his talents opened new doors in a crazy musical wonderland. As an arranger with multi-platinum artists including Kirk Franklin, Ariana Grande, Fantasia, Kelly Rowland, Jill Scott, Fred Hammond, Al Jarreau, Anthony Hamilton, Ledisi, Regina Belle and Timbaland, Philthy scooped 7 Grammy Awards and gained due respect as one of the premier horn section arrangers in the business.
Philthy has been imbued with the soul of a musical saviour and the manic energy of a deliciously decadent devil. With the humor andlyrical flow of Slim Shady before the music biz ate him up, Philthy could be the love child of Andre 3000 and Aretha Franklin, with James Brown laying down the blessing. He gives his life to bring music to yours.He’s been given a gift and wants you to share in it. This party’s just getting started…
Efraym Elliott Yamin is an American singer known for his hit single "Wait for You" and for placing third on the fifth season of American Idol.

“The theorem of turntablist as musician has been long proven in the capable hands of DJ LOGIC, whom with jazz as his foundation has become a wax innovator by crossing genres and mixing his sound across the map. As one of the world's most accomplished turntablist’s, DJ LOGIC is widely credited for introducing jazz into the hip - hop realms and is considered by most as a highly respected session musician and an innovative bandleader.Since his emergence in the early nineties amidst the Bronx hip-hop scene, the New York City based deejay has been amassing a veritable mountain of collaborations ranging from the likes of: MEDESKI MARTIN AND WOOD, CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE, VERNON REID, CHARLIE HUNTER, JACK DeJOHNETTE, JOHN MAYER, BEN HARPER, MOS DEF and THE ROOTS, to name but a few.DJ LOGIC and his role as an electronic-music ambassador keeps him at the top of his game. Whether the scratch artist instructs tablas to flirt with drum 'n' bass (such as on his NINA SIMONE and BILLY HOLIDAY remixes found on Sony Legacy's Remixed and Reimagined volumes) , or while meshing free styling MC's with Afro-Cuban rhythms (such as on 'Share Worldwide Funk' - a remix produced for JACK DeJOHNETTE and Golden Beams Collected, Volume 1 ) , LOGIC can always be found paying homage to his predecessors while contributing his vision to the deejay genre. While the context of his work may vary, DJ LOGIC’S spinning skills are definitely beyond reproach. He works with a phenomenal roster of invited guests, and he knows how to pick his collaborators as well as his samples. With a growing catalogue of recordings under his belt, DJ LOGIC’S supreme musicianship and tastes will allow him to journey wherever an infectious groove may take him.
