While Teeko’s notoriety over the last decade may come from his superhuman Turntablist repertoire -- DMC, ITF and Guitar Center champion, co-creator of the Vestax Controller One, recording for Grammy Award-winning producer Mark Ronson, D’Angelo, Q-tip, Heavy D and others, his creative prowess naturally extends to his work as a keyboardist, writer and producer. He has also received accolades by the world-renowned Berklee School of Music in Boston, receiving the Milestones Innovative Producer’s Award. Teeko has also been recognized by the prestigious Monterey Jazz Festival, being the 1st electronic music act invited to perform.
In recent years, he has teamed up with acclaimed fellow bay area producer B.Bravo to form the modern bass/funk outfit, Starship Connection. Hitting festivals across the country bringing new elements of live performance in the electronic music scene. His recent culmination of skills on synths, turntables, and production has taken his live sets to new levels including several exciting collaborations with Salva, Mr Carmack, Dj A-trak, Ruckazoid, Fatima, Decap and more. After releasing his “Blast That” Ep on Dj Craze’s Slow Roast Records, he started 2016 strong by supporting Mr Carmack with powerful opening sets on his world tour. All in all, the man is at one with his art, no matter what his device his sound continues to take exciting new shapes while effortlessly blowing minds and breaking necks.

What's in it for you: as a doubleOone member, you will attend a 4-hour recording session in a state of the art studio, and share this unique moment with a band as they record a track, and work together to reach excellence. You will be in the recording room with the musicians as they play. You will find that studios are sanctuaries, places where time flows at its own natural pace, and where true inspiration is captured in sound and music. If you are a musician yourself, we might even have a surprise for you. The recording is followed by a cultural chat and a Q&A session, addressing creativity, emotional labor, art and life choices, communication, practice, inspiration, achievements and the road to one's true calling, ambition and mastery.
*Our recording sessions standards: you will attend the recording session with a small doubleOone group (only 20-25 spots available/recording), and engage in creating genuine music. Catering and wine will be served. 25th Street Recording is a world-class music recording facility niched in the heart of downtown Oakland. It features many specialized construction techniques that make it one of the quietest, best sounding studios in the world.
