Dance philosopher and respected movement artist. Coflo is a lifelong student of the dance arts, devoted to the study, thoughts, theories and histories of dance. His respect extends to all of those that came before him and with great humility does his best to recreate the great lessons, thoughts and styles of the past.

“Creating something that is entirely new is all to difficult when we can probably benefit a lot more from respect the past.”

Within his studies of dance he has come to study more and more about music. Exploring everything from his taste pallet in music to the creation of it. As the founder of Catch The Ghost, he hopes to expose more people to the music that is near and dear to his heart.

“My friends, family and crew make some of the dopest music and that is only one facet of their artistry. A true Soulshifter isn’t a one trick pony, nor are they just an artist emerged in music, dance, paint, tattoo or other. A Soulshifter is truly creative because that is there life blood. Sure… I can barley write my own name legible enough for someone to know what it says, but hey… when I get together with the family and they are painting walls with incredible works for art during BBQ’s or gatherings; it certainly doesn’t stop me from throwing on a fat cap and making a fool out of my self. They are creating, I am inspired, so I throw down. Yea usually I’m the joke of the session, but I am a Soulshifter… I live to create…I’ve never been naturally good at anything, you gotta work towards communicating what your soul is telling you is inside.”

“My feet sing a story of all those who come before me. Peace, love and light to Soulshifters and Circle of Fire…” – Coflo

Jimmy B has been acclaimed amongst the finest DJs in the everlasting underground scene of the Bay Area. As a Bay Area resident growing up in the 80s, Jimmy was fortunate to be influenced by a diverse array of culture, especially In the late 90s when he was introduced to various forms of underground music around the post west coast rave scene.

As years went by the massive rave culture diminished, politics and new regulations pushed things underground into warehouses, lofts and intimate outdoor gatherings. This is when Jimmy and his creative friends really became intrigued and manifested their own party crew under the name RXFX. They spent much of their time organizing events catering to vibe-driven underground house music.

Between throwing warehouse parties in Santa Cruz, he and his friends would travel up to San Francisco and frequent the Green Gorilla Lounge, Sunset Soundsystem, DHP and Slide undergrounds. They would also hit up The Velvet Shop on Thursdays in San Jose. It was during these formative years and events that led to Jimmy’s first gigs at small gatherings and later moving into nights at local Santa Cruz venues including The Blue Lagoon, Margaritaville, 418 Project and The Catalyst.

During college, while attending the Green Gorilla and Velvet Shop parties, Jimmy befriended DJ M3 and Anthony Mansfield and they shortly took the SF newbie under their wings, getting him involved as a resident with the legendary Green Gorilla Crew. The nights of quality house music and morning grooves continued mostly in the form of Green Gorilla loft and warehouse parties. Later DJ M3 acquired The Triple Crown where the Green Gorilla Crew DJ'd frequently for three years before its close and subsequently led to the opening of Monarch where the crew continues to share magical evenings of solid house music.

Jimmy continues to be a strong supporter of the SF Bay underground, his events and DJ sets continue to hit the ears of hungry underground house fans. He has co-founded System and his own event VOX. He tours several times a year spreading the good word of west coast underground house, all while continuing to contribute to Green Gorilla Lounge and their Burning Man travels with the Disco Knights. Jimmy’s recent WERD residency at Monarch showcases weekly vibe-laden guest alongside co-residents DJ Kimmy Le Funk, Zoz, Nick Williams, Rachel Torro and Woo. It's no secret that Jimmy has his finger on the pulse of SF underground dance music.
