Tensnake
Tensnake
Growing up listening to disco, soul, boogie, funk and 80s pop, Marco Niemerski has spent the past 10 years making disco for the 21st century as Tensnake. Inspired by the likes of Larry Levan to Junior Boys Own, Romanthony and Masters of Work he's gained a great reputation amongst music collectors. His track 'Coma Cat' smashed dance floors worldwide and earned himself a name as a game-changing dance pioneer in 2010.

Since then he released his debut album Glow (featuring an impressive range of collaborators, including the almighty Nile Rodgers, three time Grammy-winning Stuart Price (AKA Jacques Lu Cont), Jamie Lidell, MNEK, Fiora, and more), launched his latest artist label, True Romance, (releasing tracks from forward-thinking artists such as Andre Hommen, Prison Grande, Charlie Sputnik, Sunrise Highway, Magic Touch, Larse, and more) and has continued to release successful EP's including 2015's Keep On Talking / The Walk EP, and 2016's Desire / Fantasma EP.

She has graced the tables from Ministry of Sound London to Ushuaia Ibiza, Panorama Bar Berlin, Eric Jackson Leon Floresereo Montreal and everywhere in between. She has also shared the decks with none other Danny Tenaglia, Derrick Carter, Green Velvet, The Martinez Brothers, Satoshi Tomiie, and Quentin Harris.

Collaborating with such legendary vocalists Dajae and Celeda, Honey can count Toolroom Records, Nervous, Mile End, Stereo Productions, Deeperfect, Classic Recordings as a few of the labels she has released tracks on. She also runs her own label Digital Disco which has seen artists DJ Sneak, Jeremy Joshua, Derrick Carter, Luke Solomon and Orangemuse all contribute to it's growing success. Honey has also remixed, along with her studio partner Sebastian Manuel, pop acts Cyndi Lauper, Casey Spooner, R.E.M, and Jessica 6 spreading her infectious sound to garner even more fans around the world.

Honey's recent gigs for such clients as Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Rick Owens and other global taste-makers
is also making her one of the most sought after dj's for top fashion events.

exciting projects. As Danny Tenaglia said when once asked what is his favorite form of dance music, he
replied 'I LIKE IT ALL"! What a great motto that suits Honey Dijon perfectly!
Papa Lu
Papa Lu
Born and raised in the San Francisco, Bay Area, Ca. Papa Lu had the chance to absorb all styles of music from Hip Hop to house as an adolescent. His first passion was with Hip Hop. As soon as he graduated from High School he dove right into the business of throwing Hip Hop shows at a venue called The DNA Lounge. He worked with some of the most classic artists of the true school era like Digable Planets, Digital Underground, Gang Starr, Kool Keith, Dj QBert, Jumi, Grand Wisord Theordore, and many more. During that time period more than a handful house music pioneers like Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, Dj Sneak, Kaskade, Heather, Colette, etc were making their waves at that same venue and that's where Papa Lu had learned to love house music. Becoming a house music aficionado Papa Lu had then decided to make the transition into producing quality house music events. He still to this day produces a party named Night Moves at Monarch SF and other events as well in a few of the other fine established clubs of San Francisco. He's worked with artists such as Danny Daze, Jimmy Edgar, Poolside, Amine Edge & Dance, Doctor Dru, Walker & Royce, Lazaro Casanova, Claptone, Juan MacLean, Fur Coat, Crazy P, Noir, Moon Boots, John Tejada, J Boogie, Deejay Theory, Pacific Disco, etc. In the process of becoming deeply involved and passionate with finding new cutting edge artists to book Papa Lu cultivated himself as a quality dj opening and closing for the artists named above and is now in high demand to be added to other local events and more. For Papa Lu, his career as an innovative house dj has just nearly started an budding well. His production with Bryan Boogie (LifeSF/ 2nd Sunday) is in progress and expected to make a lot of traction.
