[HvEXAS] Lounge @ Daisy's w/special guests DJ DRM & CAPTAIN PLANET (Bastard Jazz) SATURDAY, JUNE 5, Select Rhythms brings you the funky as hell musical invasion of Troy, NY by Brooklyn's DJ DRM and CAPTAIN PLANET. DRM (aka Aaron Schultz) is a globe-crossing DJ who's played from Europe to South Asia and all over the US, including Miami's WMC. He is also co-founder of long running, and highly respected Brooklyn label BASTARD JAZZ. CAPTAIN PLANET, along with his radio and online gigs, has also DJ'd at acclaimed NYC spots like Fat Baby, Bembe, Cielo, and Highline Ballroom among others. He also releases music under the CAPTAIN PLANET moniker on BASTARD JAZZ.

Bringing these two DJs together, along with Lounge @ Quintessence resident DJs Lazer & Blazer and Properly Chilled, means you can count on this very special BASTARD JAZZ night at Daisy Baker's to be one you don't want to miss. Best of all, IT's FREE! and open to anyone 18+ (w/ID).



As co-founder and label manager of Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz Recordings, DJ DRM has been fortunate enough to travel the world representing one of NYC's longest running and most respected boutique record labels. His DJ sets are wildly eclectic, bringing in sounds from the tidepools of Dub & Reggae, Hip-hop, B-Boy Breaks, Latin, Disco, House, Afrobeat and more....and always aimed straight for the dancefloor.


Captain Planet has been hustling in the competitive NYC DJ scene since 2000, when he first arrived from the San Francisco Bay. In addition to rocking crowds weekly in hotspots like Fat Baby, Bembe, Cielo, and Highline Ballroom among others, he has also travelled abroad, bringing his funky international flavor to Europe and the Caribbean.

Outside of the clubs, Capt. Planet hosts New York City's one-of-a-kind global roots radio show "Passport" on WNYU 89.1 FM ( With such high demand for his unique gumbo funk selections, he created the popular "Captain's Crate" audioblog ( where people from around the world are able to hear a fresh selection of MP3s and DJ mixes every week. Most recently, his monthly "Mixtape Riot" () party has been receiving hype in magazines and newspapers as well as giving him the opportunity to spin for prominent Hip Hop ad R&B artists such as Ghostface, Bahamadia, Sway, Ladybug Mecca, Stephanie McKay, and Sky Hy - to name just a few. His 2006 release, "The Gumbo Funk EP" on Bastard Jazz Records sold out internationally in weeks and left DJs and listeners alike waiting for the next installment. He has also produced full-length albums with NY-based hip hop groups The Beatards and Building Bloc. You can catch him at a live show behind the mic as well as manning the turntables.

To get a preview of what the BASTARD JAZZ sound is all about, tune in to The SOUNDS OF NOW hosted by DJ SCOOTER on 91.5 FM the night before (June 4th), at 10pm. You'll hear an exclusive mix put together by DJs DRM and CAPTAIN PLANET.
