Roland Clark House Music’s Songsmith /Producer/ Deejay and Vocalist Past Aliases: Digital Pimps, South Street Player, Urban Soul/Dark Clark/and his latest alter ego Jesus Jackson which pegged the 3rd season opening of Greys Anatomy song “ Running On Sunshine”: Roland Clark is also featured vocalist on many Fatboy Slim releases. His voice is sometimes described as wildly erotic, soulful, loving, and deep. On Fatboy Slim's "Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars," several tracks are indelibly imprinted with Roland’s lines, especially the undeniable track, “ What Da Fuck &"Song for Shelter." On "Shelter," Roland Clark, extemporizes a beat poet paean to house music, exalting it as a haven of real-deal family values in a hostile world, I get deep, I get deep, I get deeper He goes on, word-jazzing about how its rhythm "goes in my blood like alcohol, gets me drunk" All you hip hoppers, you doo woppers, name droppers, you pill poppers - come into OUR house to get deep! "Song for Shelter," a Fatboy Slim masterpiece, would lose its soul without Clark's blissful babble about dancers with "wings for feet" and Jesus being a DJ. The track is a gorgeous vision of disco heaven, and Roland Clark’s parts are at the heart of it all. Roland’s voice proliferates throughout the realm of House Music, and his Midas Touch seems to be constant: if you can get Roland on your track, its going to be magic. Roland also carved himself a nice slice of house music’s pie with his phenomenal deejaying and production skills. His contributions infuse many artists best works, including Armand Van Helden's gorgeous "Flowerz." Not surprising, though it is another track blessed by the voice of Roland Clark. Quite simply, Roland Clark has carved-out his place in history as the voice of House Music. Quote: "If House is a nation, I wanna be president!" ( DJ Roland Clark) much like a undeniable storm working with such deejays and other producers much like himself such as Todd Terry, Kenny Dope, Mark Knight, Bad Boy Bill, Meat Katie, Sandy Rivera , Terry Hunter and Rodger Sanchez, Noir, Soul Dynamic, George Morel, and Erick Morillo just to name a few.. Roland sounds if need be compared would be much like a chameleon going from a soulful sultriness to a hard house and techno. He has been sometimes pegged as the Nate Dogg of house, or house music’s loriette.. But whatever his title or which hat he has on that day be sure that this man is just beginning after all these years and will be a force to be reckoned with in the now and future!
Oscar P was raised in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Manhattan’s Washington Heights. His roots in the city run deep. Fusing Afro-Latino and deep house influences from NYC, Chicago, and Detroit, Oscar has created a unique sound that defines his style today.
“Brooklyn was where I discovered myself through music. Thankfully I had older cats who took me under their wing and schooled me on what good music was. I didn't try DJing or producing right away. I was a record collector first, and a dancer making my way trying to fit in.”
Years later, Oscar P operates two of the most respected underground house labels, Kolour Recordings and Open Bar Music. The latter recently celebrated eight years. As a producer, he’s appeared on labels like Strictly Rhythm, Tool Room, Ultra & Sony Music and his resume includes remixes for Mark Farina, KiNK, Soul Minority, Jamiroquai, Adele, Omar, Todd Terry, & Physics.
With more than 18 releases cracking the top ten in the last three years, a who's who of music industry pioneers have supported his productions. In 2012 Oscar was named the #8 best selling house music artist of the year on Traxsource. In 2014 he sat on the Best Selling Deep Afro House Artists list at #23 alongside Black Coffee, Osunlade, and Atjazz. In 2015 he landed at number thirteen.
Despite his many accomplishments— worldwide touring, top-selling records, entrepreneurial ventures as a label boss and music business marketer—Oscar still pushes the envelope as an artist and businessman.
Recently relocated from New York to San Diego, California, Oscar is tackling the West Coast with fresh perspective. He is currently co-organizing West Coast Weekender, a three-day music conference that will celebrate regional house music, and drum n bass and provide a new boost for the San Diego music scene.
Big moves like this demonstrate that, despite all his successes, Oscar P takes risks to revitalize his own creativity. "Your Local News" on Doin Work Records provides a platform for his political views, he regularly produces new records, DJs new cities, hosts new events, promotes new clients, and still finds time to return to the roots of a lifelong obsession with — music.

Whether in the studio, the DJ booth, or throwing parties, YOS embodies an undying passion for dance music, constantly evolving and fine tuning his craft.
Co-founding his own imprint in 2012, Slur Records is steadily rising to become a staple in Detroit's underground, showcasing an array of talented artists from all corners of the world.
Working under the Slur label, YOS continues to throw unforgettable parties, inviting heavy hitters to Detroit like M.A.N.D.Y, Felix Da Housecat, Danny Daze, Lee Curtiss, and Hot Since 82... to name a few.
