While getting an academic business education, Said maintained a strong presence in the San Francisco and New-York city’s underground club scene. By 1995, Said began residencies and guest appearances at clubs and private parties in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York and beyond. In 1999, Said launched Fatsouls Productions, a super sonic campaign outlet. Fatsouls’ monthly “Atmosfere” event gained a vast and remarkable following in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond during the years of 1999 – 2006. Fatsouls’ presentation of an extraordinary rotation of world class artist created a new nightlife scene in San Francisco that others have since attempted to emulate.
Fatsouls events have been featured in URB Magazine, Straight No Chaser, San Francisco Bay Guardian, 944 Magazine as well as in various local and international publications. Said currently heads Fatsouls Records, a San Francisco-based independent record label founded in 2007. Said also promotes “We & The Music,” a monthly event with emphasis on House, Afro beat and other soulful rhythms. He has a score of releases on his Fatsouls Records label and on other top indie house music labels like Wave Music, Ibadan Records, and Chez Music among others. Keep your eyes and ears open.
