Benjamin K
Benjamin K
It's a booty shakin sort of a thing.

A small town boy at heart, Benjamin was born and raised in Colorado, graduating from college in the small mountain town Durango, CO. With influences of everyone from Sasha to Prince, Whitney Houston to Tale of Us his sound is best described with two words...lust and love. After making a name for himself behind the decks, playing alongside heavy hitters the world over, and working to throw and host absurd theme parties that were consistently sold out and ample amounts of strange…..he decided it was time to pursue the life of happiness for real, packed his bags, quit his career teaching, and moved out to San Francisco. Now with just three years under his belt in the city, he's been able to pick up where he left off….and then some. Creating a monthly in the city called 'You're Welcome', bringing in some old and new favorites from all across the underground, and all across the world, has catapulted him to a consistent name stay in the SF underground. It's begun, but you've only just seen the tip…

Brunch Life
Micah picked up DJing at the very early age of 1.5, stunning his family and securing his future as a party prodigy. Unfortunately, due to a freak turntable accident on his tenth birthday, Micah developed a fear of spinning records. His family and friends encouraged him to conquer his fear and continue along the path to DJ stardom, but alas he could not be swayed. Micah went twenty whole years without picking up the needle again. Wait...that sounded weird. He went twenty years without DJing, ok? Anyway, he's come a long way on the road to recovery, and is finally ready to get back behind the decks and create some aural magic.

Black Velveteen
Before she became Black Velveteen,
Chris Offutt was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago. Her parents introduced her to a wide range of music; Motown to Mozart and everything in between. Some frequently featured artists in young Chris’s house were Aretha Franklin, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder and Jaames Taylor.

From a very young age she dreamed of hosting her own radio show. In 2011 that dream came to fruition when she had her own show “ Progressions in House” on FNOOB based out of London.
She currently does a monthly show for PURE.FM deep house channel in addition for looking for new djs to host shows on the channel.
Chris has enjoyed DJing around the San Francisco Bay Area over the past 5 years. In 2012 she became the resident DJ and musical director at Aloft Hotel SFO. In 2013 Djing in the Pride Parade on the W Hotel float. She was in rotation at The End Up and does guest spots and Monarch and Wish. In 2016 Chris was asked to join AirPusher Collective.
Whether she is spinning for friends and family in her home or on Parade floats and Art Cars or Night Clubs Black Velveteen never fails to delight and inspire her audience!

What can I say? I love music and love to dance. From an early age, I was known for always being the girl who could find songs that fit perfectly together. My passion for music is evidenced by the range in genres and my willingness to explore the unusual. My sets have something for everyone that will take you on a journey from beginning to end. In the end, it will leave you wondering where it all started. Music is where it all begins for me and set the mood on a dance floor. Whether I’m spinning the tunes or on the dance floor, I like dark, rich nasty, beats. When the music moves me, you will find me on the dance floor. When the music moves you, you might just find me at the controls on the decks. Come with me on a journey through progressive music that will defy being labeled in one genre. You may be in for a surprising trip. See you on the dancefloor….

(Mioli Music // San Francisco)
Emanate (Emily & Nate) fell in love with the mystique of electronic music at an early age.
Nathan Vain knew right away what his future passion held when he acquired his first
turntables at the age of 17. Emily Fox took a different route starting her journey in the
music scene as an organizer and promoter. This endeavor lead to landing Nathan his first
residency at a popular after hours spot back in 2001. A few years down the road and a
desire for their success growing strong they moved to San Francisco together and started
producing music as Emanate.
Nathan enhanced his knowledge of music and the industry working at DanceRecords(dot)com
from ‘04 to ‘09 as a Content Manager. That was followed by a stint interning at the
Mothership / Dirtybird labels. He also spent some time at the DJTechTools office working
with midi controllers and software.
Emily has developed her understanding of Electronic music culture by throwing various
events throughout San Francisco over the years. She also spent some time as a member
of (a few) bands where she was writing songs, singing and playing keyboard. Emily’s next
logical step became DJing, as a way to expand her talents and performance needs.
Following the path of natural evolution they started up their own label Mioli Music in 2010
(Move It Or Lose It). Since 2010 they’ve released music as Emanate and individually. They
have also signed various international artists on Mioli.
Both Emanate and Mioli had a breakout year in 2013 when Kollektiv Turmstrasse charted
their remixes of Lily Ackerman’s “Africa” and also their remix of TrAck’s
“Stay” on
Resident Advisor. Being featured, charted and played in DJ sets along with the likes of
Stimming, Adriatique, Bonobo and David August was a milestone that validated their hard
work and dedication, it also alerted the world of their arrival. A relocation to Berlin in early
2014 helped formulate and solidify their craft and sound. While in Berlin Emanate
produced and released their debut album “Alliance” and played their first Live Show. The
Alliance album was well received and featured on various music magazine websites and
dance music blogs but also recognized by Emanate as an immensely developmental
experience. With their follow up EP “Through It / Switchiz” getting as much buzz as it has it
looks like 2015 will be a door opening year for Emanate. From Techno, Tech House to
Deep House you can expect a clever blend and balance of deep and edgy music.
