"San Francisco Outside Lands: The Wrap Up"

Taking in an invitation by Eric Sharp, of Rock It Science Laboratories, as he rocked The Domes by Heineken, we were treated to a quick glimpse in party-rocking as he brought the Domes to a heightened state of euphoric frenzy. - Urb

"Matt Prehn ft. Lu Chase - Still Got Love (Eric Sharp Remix)"

Eric Sharp's rub takes us into spaced-out future garage-esque territory, with quick n' clicky beats underpinning a very big and echo-y mix. - This Is Why We Dance

"Refinery - Pantytime (Eric Sharp Remix)"

Head straight for the Eric Sharp Club Dub which does more than enough with tight percussion and further filtering of the original guitar and horn parts. Well chopped samples and a bouncing bassline make this remix very dancefloor-friendly, and a solid alternative to the original. - My Cuppa T

"On The Boogiedownload: Mix 018 by Eric Sharp (Party Jams/Multi-Genre)"

Longtime DJ/producer Eric Sharp is no longer a green jersey-wearing, pub-crawling Beantown resident. But considering he lives in San Francisco, essentially Boston’s sister city on the left coast, I figured he still qualifies for a podcast mix on the blog here. And considering it’s been several months since we’ve had a mix in the series, a new installment is LONG overdue!

Eric first got in touch with me over email two weeks ago to alert me to the fact he was playing RISE, alongside DJ Dan, the following weekend. Juggling a hectic schedule that week, I dropped the ball with the “post stuff on Beantown Boogiedown” sticker on it, so I never got around to posting the flyer. Eric and I emailed back and forth though; and his work on Soundcloud showed a great deal of promise on first listen.

Sharp’s original work, along with the mix he recorded after I reached out to him, is the perfect representation of the walls being removed between the different genres in 2011. At first glance the mix is an old, faithful tree which is deeply rooted in house; however there are a variety of branches that represent derivative sounds embodying all things electronic beyond just house. And the thing that ties everything together are the vocals on each track: easily accessable to the average listener. Like each branch of the tree, each style is covered in leaves…and professional writers, feel free to hit me with a stick for that whole analogy; I know it ain’t my best.

Either way, if you didn’t get a chance to check Sharp out at RISE last weekend, this mix is pretty accurate to what he probably played. Imagine a party where the 808, the 909, the piercing super-saw lead, the amen break, the “EPIC” breakdown, a bunch of bongos, some Rob Papen sub bass, the early 90s rave piano lead all showed up just raved together in the same room. It sounds awkward at first, but everyone somehow just gets along and it just works out in the end. As a DJ, manipulating songs that range from house to progressive, to electro, to baltimore club, to bass, ain’t easy, but Eric can probably do it in his sleep.

This is evidenced by the fact he turned this mix over within 48 hours of me asking him to put it together! - Beantown Boogiedown

"Eric Sharp and Rock It Science Laboratories"

Originally born in Boston, Eric Sharp has made a name for himself in San Francisco as a premier DJ and promoter, as well as a solid music businessman. As a versatile DJ, Eric built a following at his residency at San Francisco’s acclaimed Temple Nightclub, spinning anything from House & Electro to Techno & Dubstep or Breaks and Minimal (depending on the gig and the crowd). But his latest music, as well as his businesses are severely focused projects. Rock It Science events, first started out doing warehouse parties, became too big and lead to the creation of Rock It Science Laboratories, his own label.

Recently released to much hype in the Bay area, Eric's Thundercats EP had much success, earlier this year appearing as the opening track in a Tommie Sunshine mix, as well as an XLR8R podcast and blogged over the interwebs.

So what has this one-man music and event machine been up to? Creating some killer sounds, that’s what… with support by artists such like Tommie Sunshine, Larry Tee, Donald Glaude, Markus Shulz, Flipside, Audiostalkers, TJR and Santiago, you know he’s on his way to keeping the crowds on their toes. - Felix Da Housecat's Bopper Nation

"SF DJ Eric Sharp On the Difference Between Nightclubs and Warehouse Parties"

?You've seen the name DJ Eric Sharp on fliers from SOMA to the Haight. Whether you're a 9-5'er in the Financial District or an underground party raver, you've also probably heard the guy at some point during your weekend dancing career. Because he doesn't conform to a particular sound, Sharp has played alongside characters such as DJ Ayres and Afrika Bambaataa. But Sharp's also known for Rock It Science, which started as an event production company in 2005, grew into a label last year, and this year will launch a clothing line. So what's behind Sharp's success? Working hard and being part vampire, as he explains. Catch him as the headliner of the first Temple Friday of the year alongside another S.F. favorite, Andrew Phelan. - SF Weekly

"Last Night a DJ Saved My Life"

A founding father of the famous Rock It Science Laboratories, DJ Eric Sharp is a name spoken often in the Bay Area DJ scene. Spending years perfecting the art of dance music and contributing so much to the San Francisco dance music community, it’s no wonder he has such a loyal following. Whether it is fueling the fire in our dance shoes or putting on the latest underground party, the hustle and bustle of his daily life shines through when one experiences his latest event or music. - SF Station

Prolific in the studio and tireless behind the decks, Eric Sharp’s energy and dedication have given him opportunity to share the stage with the likes of Green Velvet, Neon Indian, Diplo and Afrika Bambaataa, while his tunes have turned up in sets by top international DJs such as Roy Davis Jr, Drop The Lime, Donald Glaude and Santiago & Bushido to name but a few. After meeting him at WMC, Tommie Sunshine immediately signed Sharp for the first offering on his brand new label, Brooklyn Fire (released November 2010).

2010 was a banner year for Eric, beginning with the launch of his independent label Rock It Science Laboratories, which he runs with NYC counterpart DJ Fame. Initially devised to provide an outlet for his own extensive output and collaborations, Rock It immediately grew in scope and now has a range of releases slated for 2011. With this auspicious start to a new year, Sharp is raising the bar for himself with a flurry of activity including his debut solo EP, a remix of Dirty Vegas, a track appearance on CSI: Miami and a continued stream of collaborations and remixes. Add to this a substantial gig schedule (including Amsterdam Dance Event, Decibel Festival, Outside Lands, SXSW & Ultra Week performances) and one can get a small taste of Eric’s steadfast commitment to the dance floor.
