MIDWEST COAST BREAKS
(Contaminated Muzik) Rough and ready for your next warehouse blowout. FACTOR e delivers nostalgic and effective party tunes. Personal pick is “20,000 Freaks,” whose dark, warped basslines, from-the-gut vocal snippets and steady rockin’ beat should annihilate any self-respecting dance floor in double-quick time. More material is eagerly awaited from this producer, who has already shown a mastery of crowd-pleasing elements. Review by Tamara Palmer

“For those of you who don’t know Sharaz, he has been responsible for some of the best Florida tracks to come out in the past three years. There are way too many to name but it’ safe to say that if you have heard a funky breaks set in the past two or three years, you have heard his work. Sharaz’ set was comprised mostly of his tracks, but toward the end of his set he started to venture into other territories. The highlight of his set was the Jackal N Hyde remix of FACTOR e’ “20,000 Freaks”, which, if you can get it, is probably the hottest thing out of Florida or anywhere right now."

“Malaguti soon proved to be a heavy hitter when it co-sponsored Playboy Magazine’ notorious Spring Break Week on South Padre Island, TX. The scooters escorted Playmates and DJ FACTOR e, the MTV Campus Invasion DJ, everywhere on the island. Malaguti stepped up to the plate again in Miami Beach this March for the Winter Music Conference. The Scooter company co-sponsored a party with Playboy at the ultra-trendy South Beach nightspot Goddess. Featuring six Playmates and a display of the Malaguti scooter line, this party was one of the highlights of the entire Conference.”
