Long before he was Jay Z’s tour DJ for all of 2008 and 2009, or a Global Brand Ambassador for Adidas for 2010, Neil Armstrong was a humble, fan of music. And he has never changed…
Acknowledged as the founding father of the DJ Collective the “5th Platoon”, Neil was born and breed in NYC, cutting his teeth in the early 90’s during the era of backpack Hip-Hop and the art of Turntablism. His time spent in the trenches battling and mastering the art of spinning allowed him to rock shows alongside artists across the Hip-Hop spectrum – from De La Soul, The Roots, Company Flow and Biz Markie, to Kanye West, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes and Wyclef Jean; he was also a member of the critically acclaimed 2 time Grammy -Nominated jazz band – Russell Gunn and Ethnomusicology, playing alongside iconic musicians Kenny Garrett (a member of Miles Davis’ band) and Brandford Marsalis.
DJ, Rapper and Mistress of Ceremonies, Jasmine Solano is a world-travelling, bonafide workaholic. Her anthem track, “That’s Not It” can be seen on MtvU. Jasmine was 2009′s only female to open for Rock The Bells and not long after, caught the ear of the Sr. Director of Marketing at Myspace. What followed was a slew of opening performances for Ghostface, Rakim, The Clipse and Sean Kingston. In 2010, Jasmine went on the road with Wiz Khalifa, as his official DJ for the “Deal Or No Deal Tour”, performing & DJing in a sold out, 60 city nation-wide tour. In 2011 she DJ’d for Beyonce in Harlem in conjunction with Beyonce’s album release & was featured in Jay Z’s “That’s Rocawear” fall campaign. In addition to Rocawear, Jasmine was featured in Dr. Jays and Married To The Mob campaigns. In working closely with Redbull, Jasmine was made an official “Redbull Opinion Leader”, as they sponsor many of her events. Aside from her overwhelming online presence, Jasmine has been featured in UK’s Mix Mag as well as Paper Magazine, two consecutive years. In December 2011, Nike Sportswear featured Jasmine in their Holiday Lookbook. Jasmine’s close ties to Burton, awarded her a place as featured blogger for BurtonGirls.com.
