DJ Patrick Scientific is co-leader of The Audio Infusion along with Henry Da Man. Patrick has most of the shows duties on his shoulders. Most of the scheduling of guests and programming of the show and weekly events goes through him. In addition to that Patrick maintains and updates the web site and the Facebook pages. Patrick is always in constant contact with record lables, promotions companies, DJs and recording artists themselves promoting the show and trying to get more music to the show. Even after all of the fore mentioned duties, he still ends up finding time to put together mixes for the show.
Believe it or not DJ Patrick Scientific started out (and to this day still is) a street promoter for LaStreet Promotions. Every once in a while he would bring DJ Willie music to play on The Audio Infusion. Patrick always conceptually knew how to mix but never really pursued it. At a friends house Patrick got on a friend’s turntables and surprised them. Seeing that it was something he enjoyed he decided to take the monitary plunge and purchase 2 turntables and a mixer. After making a couple of house mixes in which one got played on The Underground Experience with DJ Oji and DJ Pope on WEAA 88.9 FM, he arbitrarily tried to make a Drum and Bass mix. This was the first mix that got played on The Audio Infusion. After that he soon asked DJ Willie if he could intern on the show. Giving Willie records in the past probably helped in that decision but at the time Willie needed another person to be on the show. Willie just told Patrick to be on the show and Patrick became a member of The Audio Infusion.
On the show you can find Patrick playing anything. House and Drum and Bass will always get played. Patrick also gets off on trip hop and turntablism music. People like DJ Goo, Q-Bert and DJ Cam are what he likes to play at 4AM.
Patrick considers himself a House DJ but plays just about anything on The Audio Infusion. It doesn’t really matter to him. He just hopes the show grows and wants someone from the show to go beyond WEAA and if not make it big in the music industry, at least take it to that next level.
With the landscape of labels, radio, magazines, websites and blogs constantly changing, it is virtually impossible for music mavens to have a dependable outlet that they can consistently rely on for the best new music. New York-based music guru BILL COLEMAN has established himself as an important resource for quality innovative music.
Throughout his impressive 23-year career in the music industry, the dynamic and multi-faceted DJ, producer, remixer, music supervisor, performer and recording artist has become renown for his eclectic taste, acute ear and diverse musical expertise. In the worlds of music and film, Coleman is an influential tastemaker at the forefront of emerging trends and talent in the pop, r&b, rock, alternative, dance and electronic music landscape, as well as, in cutting edge independent film and documentaries.
The tireless “renaissance man” has enjoyed success as a revered music journalist having cut his teeth as the Dance and Singles Reviews Editor for Billboard Magazine [from 1987 to 1990]. He has written a music column for NYC style rag PAPER (”Wasn’t Tomorrow Wonderful?”), sat on the initial editorial board for the launch of OUT Magazine and freelanced for Musician magazine, B.E.T. and the BBC, alongside completing numerous album liner notes (Time Life’s popular Uptown Saturday Night series, Thompson Twins, Exposé).
As the owner of Peace Bisquit, Coleman along with ANGELO “PEPE SKORDOS, JAMES BRUNDAGE and ERIN FAIRMAN represent an array of genre-defying artists including: Baltimore-based, platinum-selling R&B/dance diva ULTRA NATÈ’ (“Automatic”, “Free”); international pop star singer/songwriter CHRIS WILLIS (the voice of Grammy-nominated David Guetta’s “Love Is Gone”, “Love Don’t Let Me Go”); charismatic electro funk rapper CAZWELL (“I Seen Beyonce at Burger King”); stylish downtown denizens THE ONES (“Flawless”), legendary Singer / Songwriter JILL JONES (Prince’s “Purple Rain”, “1999″), sexy pin-up crooner / actor COLTON FORD (“Losing My Religion”, “That’s Me”), French electro punk upstarts, PRAVDA (“The A.B.C. of L.O.V.E.”), Williamsburg indie kid THE SPECIMEN, acid jazz pioneers BROOKLYN FUNK ESSENTIALS and UK lounge lizards I LIKE IT ELECTRIC.

In early 2005, Coleman launched Peace Bisquit Discs – a new record company he founded to help introduce amazing music and bypass the labyrinth of corporate nay-sayers who lack vision for the 21st Century.
The first releases included new tunes from industry legends JODY WATLEY, The PRETENDERS (Loose Screws), JULEE CRUISE (David Lynch) and JILL JONES (with The Grand Royals). Peace Bisquit Discs is currently prepping the album debut of International nightlife denizen AMANDA LEPORE humbly-titled “I…Amanda Lepore”, has released the first solo dance single from Brand New Heavies vocalist N’DEA DAVENPORT (“One Day My Love”) which went Top 10 on Billboard’s Club Play chart as well as a number of assorted releases and videos from it’s prolific roster. Up next – the raucous U.S. debut of French electropunk duo PRAVDA called “Westward” and THE ONES sophomore album, “Blast From The Past.”
Additionally, Peace Bisquit has recently joined forces with the international and legendary dance imprint Strictly Rhythm for a new label endeavor – BEAT CONGRESS. The first releases of this exciting venture debut Spring 2010.

A brand new project entitled “Eat Dub For Breakfast” – a collaboration with Miami-based superproducer Funky Junction is out now.
Coleman’s extensive musical knowledge and vast relationships with recording artists, producers and record labels has been a great asset to him as a music supervisor, creative consultant and contributor. Bill has worked on a number of acclaimed indie features and television shows including Party Monster, Party Girl, The Watermelon Woman, the Don Cheadle, Zooey Deschanel-led teen drama Manic, the John Leguizamo-Rosie Perez independent King Of The Jungle, The Prime Gig (starring Vince Vaughn and Ed Harris) and 2004 Sundance winner and Independent Spirit Awards nominee Brother To Brother.

They’ve graced the stages of CBGB’s, Dixon Place, The Delancey, Highline Ballroom, Cake Shop, Happy Valley, Mermaid Parade, Galapagos, Coney Island, The Pyramid, Southpaw, The Marquee/Slide and The Knitting Factory to name a few. They’ve been described by electrocrash pioneer DJ Larry Tee as “Outkast on steroids” and by various fans as a Peaches meets Vanity 6 amalgam. The Daisy Spurs recently rocked the annual Bowie Ball (a tribute to David Bowie) and this year’s Glammy Awards. Daisy Spurs will be releasing it’s first single and video, “I Hate Everybody In The Discoteque” this Winter followed by their debut album/mixtape, “Pulling Dirty Taffy” later this Spring.
