If you’re not familiar with Mr.C’s resumé then listen up. He’s well known in Russia as a DJ, record collector and for his legendary party promotions during the past 10 years. Today he’s spinnin’ mostly obscure 60’s & 70’s musical gems on original 45s: Soul, Funk, Latin Boogaloo, Mod Jazz, R’n’B and Popcorn plus he runs a vintage soul dance party called “Fun City Shingaling” which is patronized by offshoot label Pipeline Promotion.
This small independent promo label has brought some of the coolest djs of the world soul/funk scene to St.Petersburg : Ian Wright (UK), Keb Darge (UK), Jazzman Gerald (UK), Euan Fryer (UK), Mr. Finewine (USA), Florian Keller (Germany)…and many more serious record collectors from Europe, Scandinavia and the USA.
The Fabulous Mr.C has travelled throughout Europe with his record case full of original funk & soul 45s, djin’ at «Oslo Soul Experience» (Norway), «Funk Squad» at Atomic Cafe (Munich/Germany), «Soul Sides» (Helsinki/Finland), «Soul Inn» at Lido (Berlin/Germany), Flex Club (Vienna/Austria), «Powder Room» at Apolo (Barcelona/Spain), Marula-Barcelona, Satta (Vilnius/Lithuania) and more. He’s also travelled to many cities in Russia including Moscow, Samara, Vologda and Ekaterinburg…
Mr.C has shared turntables with internationally renowned artists such as: Dj Format (UK), J-Rocc (USA), Kid Loco (France), Dj Krush (Japan), Bob Jones (UK), Dj Vadim (UK), Andy Smith (UK), Ollie Teeba (UK) etc. In other words, this dude is qualified to satisfy.
