Icelandic golden child in America and New York native just back from Europe, both Holmar and Greg have both dedicated themselves to the debaucherous worship of all good things that can happen in a dark crowded room with good lighting.

Bringing together a wide variety of influences from house to minimal and disco to techno, first and foremost these guys bring the party to the party. Releases on seminal labels Life and Death, Moodmusic, Music For Freaks, Brique Rouge, Global Underground and their own label, Thugfucker Recordings are proof that there's more to them than just a couple of pretty faces.
Galen founded Sunset Sound System with the idea of providing free, outdoor picnic-style parties where people could commune and dance while watching the sun set behind the San Francisco skyline. Word spread quickly, and what began as a few friends with speakers and a generator turned into festivities of over 1,000 people within the first year.  Today, Sunset Sound System is on the move, boasting big-name talent for their international boat parties, festival-style campouts and famed park gatherings.
The early Sunset events served as Galen's creative outlet and a prime platform to perfect his technique. DJing meant extensive knowledge of music history, hard-earned vinyl collections, and truly intuitive mixing. Inspired by the psychedelic climate of the 90's San Francisco music scene Galen successfully grew himself into a household name that he maintains today, holding it down with the world's top talent. His sets are thoughtful, yet never pre-planned, with artfully-timed track selections that spark any dance floor he touches, appealing to the old school just as much as the new.
Creative fusion with Claude VonStroke led to a killer remix of '80s breakbeat classic "Jam On It," and a mutual profound love for pizza inspired him and Justin Martin to co-produce Dirtybird classics, "Dust Devil" and "Tumbleweed."   Soon after, he landed a coveted feature spot on Annie Nightingale's Radio 1 Show where he impressed BBC listeners with his smooth mixing style. Most recently, Galen's Sunset remix of "I Feel Love" by Get Physical charmer, Lopazz, catapulted to #1 on his Beatport chart.
The summer of 2013 opened European doors with a breakthrough appearance at Dirtybird's Ibiza residency. At Croatia's Garden Festival, Galen shined on the Sunset Sound System Boat Party alongside Justin Martin, Eats Everything, and Solar. His new track, "ICANCU" has just been released on the Dirtybird BBQ Compilation and another "Your Own Style" is to coming out soon on Smoke N' Mirrors. 2014 also brings the boys of Sunset Sound System back to Croatia for another Garden Festival Boat Party among other European dates.

Jaime James
Things gained momentum after the unfortunate passing of the DJ and owner of Divine Styles Productions; Jaime and his brother subsequently assumed ownership and continued to DJ, also providing sound and lighting reinforcement. Their many gigs in the '90s encompassed weddings, debutante balls, school proms, collegiate events, gigs at nightclubs 111 Minna, Club X, Il Pirata, and DJ/Production showcases, most notably the '92 Battle of the Bay-DJ's Extravaganza.

After a nearly ten-year hiatus and with mobile DJing far behind him, Jaime returned to the scene in the Spring of 2005, with a calling to dance music. He DJ's under his birth name, Jaime James, and occasionally under the alias Gaijin. Jaime's mixing style blends deep house, techno, tech-house, and other dance genres he feels will move the crowd.

Since his return in '05, Jaime has frequently DJ'd alongside resident DJs of the Bay Area's [KONTROL], known for monthly techno parties, Pacific Sound Sunset, famous for seasonal boat parties and free park parties with thousands in attendance, and the ghetto-tech Dirtybirds. He's also DJ'd numerous underground events and clubs around the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Venues have included 222 Club, Monroe, Shine SF, Supperclub, TEN15, including residencies at Anu Bar and the legendary The Endup. Jaime gained additional notoriety through sponsored events from clothing stores Club Monaco, Nike, the national athletic gym 24 Hour Fitness, Jane Magazine, and the 2007 San Francisco Fashion Week.
