Growing up and cleaning the house to jazzy, soulful, disco funky stuff (thanks to his parents) while also getting that old school hip hop/R&B influence (thanks to his big bro) is where it all began for James Walker aka cakewalk. Jump ahead many years and musical phases later, after DJing college parties in Boston/NH and attending the MMMMaven DJ & Music Production courses, he quickly found his place in the Boston underground scene.

Since then cakewalk has become a resident with BINARY and Flight 617 which are two of the top underground parties in Boston. He has also shared the stage with electronic music hero’s like Soul Clap, Purple Disco Machine, Way Out West, Little Boots, Chus + Ceballos, No Regular Play, Beckwith, and Ben Silver of Orchard Lounge.

This should give you an idea of the wide range of musical waves that can be present during a cakewalk set. Expect to hear anything from the funky sounds of disco to those deep latin tribal safari ride feels. Being known for playing multiple different parties and being able to catch a vibe while still blending genres is one example of what sets him apart from the basic DJs that are heard too often today.

From playing rooftop parties in NYC to international clubs like Habitat Living Sound, cakewalk is quickly making his name known and funking up dance floors all over the globe.

Jen will be staying up way past her bedtime to help celebrate Hillary, Kait, Allyson, and Kathryn’s birthdays! For those that don’t know, Jen mixed sets under the DJ name “popgirl23” for almost 2 decades. First playing out around 1998 or 1999, she gained her first of many residencies in about a year’s time. Her ass-whooping deep funky house sets were heard at Una Wine Bar, Lava Lounge, The Mercury, Bubba’s Sulky Lounge, The Roxy, and too many to even remember. She was voted “Portland’s Best DJ” in various local magazines and other media for the better part of the 2000’s. She has played in more than two dozen cities across the US, including both coasts and the south, plus the UK and the Mediterranean island of Sardinia. Jen was also known as a champion of the underground rave and house music scenes in Maine and New England going back since the beginning of the 90s. She threw her first events way back in 1992 and helped bring Beltek Festival from what it was, to what it became. She has been there, done that, and bought the lunchbox. Jen will be playing some sexy a$$ $hit!
