Ninja Papes and the 2Step Tuesdays Crew

James I. Forosisky, also known by his stage name, Ninja Papes, is a United States born DJ who helped popularize the electronic music genre of Drum and Bass in the early 2000s with his colleagues in the 412DNB crew, who hosted the longest running Drum and Bass weekly event in the US, FUZZ, from 2000 to 2014. His focus was in jazz, bossa, and hip hop inspired edm. In 2016, he began his association with 2 Step Tuesdays, a Pittsburgh-based House, Breaks, and UK Garage team that has been active for 8 years. An autodidact in the craft and an anglophile since his youth, Ninja Papes shifted his focus to the nostalgic but evolving sound of UK Garage, and continues to favor the jazz and hip hop influenced sounds birthed in the late 90s London club scene. His sets are guaranteed to include vocalists celebrating the traditions of R&B and Rap, or Grime, with an exciting and bleeding edge twist indicative of an ever growing and evolving style. You can find him once a week at Tiki Lounge, Pittsburgh
