Rachel Torro
Rachel Torro
Rachel Torro is carving out a unique space in the San Francisco House Music scene with an aesthetic that draws from her adventurous musical background. Her musical passion has been influenced by artists like Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and LCD Soundsystem. She combines a mature breadth of taste with a youthful playfulness colored by her post-adolescent history of psychedelic rock revelry. Her song selections weave a voice that is all her own–minimal, deep and tech house sensibilities build upon and support each other in a grounded but intricately textured experience. In addition to sharing the stage with staples like Atish, Hot Since 82, Lee Burridge, Luca Bachetti and Nico stojan, Rachel is the resident DJ and musical director for Morning Glory SF, an early morning, pre-work conscious dance party.
Laura Lisbona
Laura Lisbona
Both of these ladies were born in Atlantic City, NJ which obviously explains a lot. Their father is a musician and was the Director of Entertainment at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino. They grew up around serious talent, even kicking it with the Rat Pack at early ages.

They moved to California before they were in New Jersey long enough to develop accents and became best friends early on. As kids, they made up many dance routines to Ace of Base's "The Sign" album and religiously listened to TLC's "Crazy Sexy Cool", even dressing like the group one year for Halloween. Between their mother and father, sharing a nearly 20-year age difference, they were exposed to a broad range of musical tastes.

In their adulthood, Laura moved to San Francisco and Ava to Orange County, and the sisters realized they weren't capable of being away from another. After Ava finished college, she promptly moved up the city so she and her sister could once again kill it on the regular. Thank God.
Haute Mess
Haute Mess
Bay Area native, Haute Mess began DJ'ing in 2011 in San Francisco thru co-hosting a wacked-out monthly called Romper Room— where non sequitur and rhythm pudding flourished. Shamelessly double-billing herself as Wonder Wendy and Haute Mess lead to wild experimentation with every genre of beats. Joining Brass Tax in 2012, and Angels of bAss in 2016, you can now hear her dynamic flavors warming up a crowd with sleazy indie dance, ramping up the vibe with funky tech house, or making boo-tays a'flutter with sexy breaks.
Elz
Elz
Having been djing since 1998, Elz brings a blend of oldschool funky flavor and dirty electro sounds to her beats. Growning up listening to oldschool breaks and house music from DJ Dan and Mark Farina along with discovering classic rock, jazz, hip-hop, and funk music she learned how to incorporate all of these elements together to create some serious flavor. She came from the underground to deliver the sound. Her first gig was in 1998 at X.O.X. 2 at the infamous 2nd and Jackson in Oakland. She then started playing at Beat Down Sundaze and became resident for Feel Good's Girl Power and played at massives like MegaBuzz, Love Affair as well as Sister SF. In 2001 Elz won best new DJ contest on House Nation (94.9 FM) in SF. She became their new resident DJ, and also won a guest appearance on the main stage at Coolworld's Cyberfest in SF and in Texas. In 2003 she won 2nd place in 92.7 Party FM Showcase at 1015 Folsom in SF.

She began getting gigs for Adidas, Puma, and Odyssey DJ Gear and in 2007 brought a new residency with the infamous SF crew Green Gorilla Lounge. Shortly after in March 2008 Elz graduated Ex'pression College with a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Sound Arts and after graduation she was selected to intern for DJ Shadow. She assisted in preparation for the launch of DJ Shadow Digital (The DJ Shadow Digital Store), myspace management, web store management, and processed sound samples for the Dj Shadow digital store.

In 2009 Elz and Denise released their remix track "Get Back into The Groove Again" on Muzimo Records shortly followed by their orignal track "All Night" feat. Audio Angel, a remix of Sue Cho's "Bad Girl" and a remix of Denise and Dawn of Sound's "Death by Mary Jane" feat. Elise on Look Out Records. "Soul Power" and "Useless" produced by DJ Elz, written and performed by Elise were picked up by Chris Lum and David Harness for their label, Harlum Muziq in 2010. And a year later remixes were released by Master Kev and Tony Loreto, Stephen Rigmaiden, Rubien Mancias, Grand High Priest, and Reelsoul, and are still charting well all over the web. With a string of gigs in Miami, L.A., Tahoe, and all over the bay area including SF's famous 2nd Sunday and numerous gigs with West City including Temple SF, be sure to keep an ear to the ground and keep posted on her new tracks on Moulton Music and upcoming events...Elz is driven by a constant urge to push herself and evolve while always staying true to herself as an artist. For her its all about the music!

Christina Leorosa
Seeking musical inspiration from the deepest pockets of the international electronic scene, Christina Leorosa refines her sound by scouring the globe for the underground of the underground; the deep, dark, driving dance floors in both emerging and established cities across the globe.

Mysterious, sexy, hypnotic and weird, Christina Leorosa’s musical curation blends a myriad of soundscapes ranging from ethereal, spacey, and psychedelic melodies to provocative, pulsating, dirty bass lines.

Although a house and techno head to start, she glides effortlessly between genres in a constant search for a sound unique to the vibration of her musical soul. She is most at home exploring the full gamut of house, techno, breakbeats, and drum & bass.

Looking forward to 2017, the Los Angeles/San Francisco based DJ is focusing heavily on music production as well as on The Athena Collective, a worldwide networking and performance platform she founded to connect, empower and inspire women in the music industry.

At the end of the day and what really matters is that my passion is to make people dance. I love all kinds of music from House, Hip Hop, Funky breaks, Electric WTF you you wanna call it, Soul and Funk. I like to find the funk & soul in it all and figure out how to weave it together. So I have never been one to play just one sound. As long as it makes you wanna do it on the dance floor and you are smiling... I have achieved my goal.
