Individually and collectively the SuperStardjs have been a a mainstay in the Austin Hip Hop scene since its infancy. As true Texas b-boys Spinner T., Crop Diggie, Rodney and Mista Ed. are now on a mission to once again elevate the status of the Hip Hop Dj to the masses. Drawing on hip hop's history, the SuperStarDjs are taking it back to the roots. Having performed on many stages throughout Texas and beyond, the SuperStarDjs have an ability to command the crowd with unmistakable confidence. The SuperStarDjs play hip hop as it was intended. SuperStarDjs have been strong participants in SXSW for the last 4 years, with hosting several showcases for HoustonSoReal's Matt Sonzala as well as been featured djs at Club 115 and the Copa. January 2006 the SuperStarDjs launched FatLaces on Graffiti Radio. As a tribute to the golden era of hip hop, Fat Laces has proved to provide a much needed void in the entertainment market. Averaging close 20,000 downloads a month, Fat Laces is poised to explode the old school scene on a worldwide level. Additionally, SuperStarDjs coordinates a monthly dj gathering, Sqratch Karnival. Over the past year the function has gained statewide respect as one of the premiere scratch session events and has featured some of the south's most talented dj artist. Sqratch Karnival is an open forum for turntablists to interact with one another, providing excellent networking opportunities as well a means of information and technique exchange. As well a prime location to showcase new and advanced dj equipment with real world hands on applications. SuperStarDjs have been strong participants in SXSW for the last 4 years, with hosting several showcases for HoustonSoReal's Matt Sonzala as well as been featured djs at Club 115 and the Copa. During the 2006 SXSW music conference Sqratch Karnival was sponsored by MOFOZVISUALZ and was hosted by the world famous Motive 807 sneaker store. There was a line around the corner to get in! In 2007 coming off a spectacular SXSW showcase at the Copa the SSDJS thought what else can we do to give back to the DJ? Then it hit them, let’s start our own Dj competition! Partnering with Rome Navarro’s B-Boy City the yearly world famous weekend long B-Boy conference and competition, held in Austin, TX every year, the 1st annual King of Scratch was launched with an outstanding turnout with 16 DJ’s going head to head and coming as far as Los Angeles to participate, judge, and as spectators, crowning Dj Nick Nack as the first ever King of Scratch. Also, in 2007 the Superstardjs launched there sister radio show Unlaced Radio. Giving unsigned artist worldwide exposure, an outlet to where they can be heard, not having to submit to the norm in trying to get there music to the masses. With Unlaced Radio fast gaining the success of FatLaces fame, Sqratch Karnival steady gaining in popularity and being hosted in other cities with the first being in San Antonio, TX and with the 2nd Annual King of Scratch fast on the horizon, 2008 looks to be an even better year for the Superstardjs, as they seek opportunities to perform at events, festivals, and clubs for there worldwide fan base, it looks like they will not be slowing down anytime soon.
