Jerome Potter is one half of DJ Dodger Stadium (DJDS) – an eclectic commercial production duo with Sam Griesemer.
Grammy-nominated for their work with Kanye West, they are genre-blurring headliners in their own right. The Los Angeles-based artists debuted in 2011 with the Stadium Status EP, a small batch of raw, acid-drenched house tracks released on their own Body High label. In the span of three years, they had remixed tracks by Maelstrom, DJ Soulja-Man and Newbody, and released their debut album, Friend of Mine. Since then, the duo's approach has evolved from being firmly rooted in early Chicago house to emphasizing pop-oriented songwriting and contemporary production touches. They also became sought-after producers for other artists.
2016 was a breakout year for DJDS. Stand Up and Speak, their first full-length for the Universal-distributed Loma Vista label, was their first release of the year. Within a few weeks, Kanye West's The Life of Pablo was released, with Griesemer and Potter involved in the production of five of its tracks. By the end of the year, the pair were nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Rap Song as co-writers of the track Ultralight Beam and had also produced the song Rih-Flex for fellow Grammy nominee the-Dream. Their momentum continued to build in 2017 with the production and co-writing of Another Sad Love Song for Khalid's Grammy-nominated American Teen album. DJ Dodger Stadium’s guest-filled third studio album, Big Wave More Fire, was issued on Loma Vista in 2018.
This year at Loop, Jerome will deconstruct one of DJ Dodger Stadium’s latest tracks. He will specifically focus on his techniques for manipulating sampled audio and adding texture to computer-generated sounds.
