Jay "Strangelove" Tappe has been a near-permanent fixture in the local dance music scene since starting out with Minneapolis ex-patriate DJ Echo back in the late 90s with Down To Earth Productions. Since that time, he's thrown countless events featuring himself, locals, and many of the world's best house and electro prodcuers, and spun sets that, back to back, would probably fill five years time. A man with many residencies and the best "club" hair on the scene. [Gimme Noise, 2009]
