Jamal Abdo has been a fixture on the SF drum n bass scene for well over 15 years as a DJ, producer and promoter known for both lighting up the dance floor himself, and booking the best in up-front talent from around the world at his long running free weekly party, Stamina. Dedicated to keeping things fresh while respecting the past, Jamal has been keeping the scene alive in SF by bringing legendary names like Doc Scott, DJ Marky, SS, Bryan G, DBridge and many more to Stamina to play along side a crop of up and coming DJs taking it to the next level. Every night at Stamina, you’re sure to get the best on the dance floor from Jamal and the talent he books.
Music City Radio had the pleasure of sitting down with Jamal to talk about the history of the music, his involvement with the SF drum n bass scene, his take on DJing and production, how he keeps his parties going and some advice for new DJs. He gave us a candid and open minded view that sheds light on a style of music that has been holding strong in the electronic music underground for almost 25 years. Jamal’s deep knowledge and love for the music and scene is truly inspirational.
Stamina takes place every Sunday night at 1192 Folsom in San Francisco, CA, and is always free. For more information, you can find Jamal on Facebook , or follow Stamina on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
