JESUS of Notion Artes
Jesus came from very humble and hard working beginnings based in Denver. He attended the University of Colorado at Denver Digital Animation Center for a few years where he found his first internship. He started doing studio production and worked his way up to working on interactive design projects.
After that, he decided to move to New York with pennies in his pocket and ambition in his heart. After freelancing for a bit and bouncing from project to project, he began to quickly gain some momentum and respect in the industry. Jesus is now following his artistic mind, and God’s influence, to open new doors and meet new people. His work, like his inspiration will continue to grow as long as he is doing what he loves.
Chuckie Steele is a Producer and DJ specializing in the experimental side of hip hop/rock /jazz and film music. His live DJ shows are a mash-up of all genres, mixed and scratched together in the style of acts such as DJ Yoda and DJ Shadow.
He got into hip hop when a friend came back from the US with RUN DMC’S TOUGHER THAN LEATHER album so he decided to tape it, playing it constantly. This soon developed into a more profound love for the music genre after hearing Westwood on the Capital Rap Show, which in turn “made me want to scratch and learn how to put mixed tapes together…even though it took me about 12 years to actually buy some.”
After DJing for a bit and doing the “odd party” Chuckie finally decided go to music college so he could learn how to professionally create songs and beats—and he hasn’t stopped since. Today he continues to create music for dancers, TV, films and for his own pleasure. “I am not signed to a label and enjoy the freedom this gives me to choose what projects I wish to take and which ones I don’t.”
Chuckie has just completed a collaboration album entitled THE TWO FACES OF GOOD AND EVIL and is currently working on a solo project.
