DJ Wiseacre (LA)
After rocking Nimmo’s with DJ Alle Farben (Berlin) on 26 June, Wiseacre has decided to stay for another week in Ireland in order to play on the Aran Islands on 2 July for Super8 Shots Arann and the Super8xtravaganza night.
Born into the lovely environs of suburban lands lying to the east of Los Angeles, and raised on frozen food, meat and the religious right, Eric Tucker, aka Wiseacre, currently finds himself happily free yet equally inspired by it all. living in the seaside republic of venice for 20 years, wiseacre initially established a successful career as a commercial/fine art photgrapher. in 2003, he decided to pick up some vinyl, a couple of turntables, a mixer, two speakers and a few friends in order to begin the labor of love we call “throwin’ parties”. since this time, wiseacre has put his love for photography on hold and co-created three very successful LA parties, FUNKY IN THE MIDDLE, CUSTOM SUNDAZE and now theLIFT which after one year is expanding to san francisco and new york . he has hosted and played along side such talents as NICKODEMUS, LOUIE VEGA, JOE CLAUSELL, OSUNLADE, BLACK COFFEE, MARK FARINA, MR. SCRUFF, QUANTIC, MARQUES WYATT, KING BRITT, MAD MATS, SIMBAD, NICK CURLY, DOMU, KARIZMA, IAN FRIDAY, RICH MEDINA, SPINNA, BODDHI SATVA, DAM FUNK, CUT CHEMIST, RECLOOSE, MAKOSSA + MEGABLAST, DJ GARTH, J ROCC, MARK RAE, FEDERICO AUBELE, SABO, DJ VADIM, MARK DE CLIVE LOWE, VIKTER DUPLAIX, 7 SAMURAI, SCOTT K, EDUARDO CASTILLO, RAUL CAMPOS, DAZ-I-KUE, GARTH TRINIDAD, DJ DAY and the one and only JEREMY SOLE. currently, wiseacre is living a bi-coastal existence between LA and NYC. while theLIFT continues to thrive in los angeles and beyond, he simultaneously is designing and building a restaurant/club, LOUIE and CHAN in the lower east side of new york. here wiseacre will continue his quest to bridge genres of music and people; creating a scene that is not exclusive or segmented, but rather one that simply appreciates “fine tunes”. the selections wiseacre chooses to share are deep and wide…. from brooklyn to the balkans, from south america to sweden, from house, to disco, to afro-latin broken beat and dub… in short, wiseacre loves life and adores his daughter zoe.
