Justin Martin
Justin Martin
Justin initially pricked the ears of the electronic music community in 2003 with his first record 'The Sad Piano' on Ben Watt's Buzzin' Fly label. Everyone in the electronic music food chain got involved, from the A list DJs like Derrick Carter and Pete Tong that were playing the track, to the international music press that were raving about it. It even translated to the German underground, with Poker Flat licensing it for Steve Bug's 'Bugnology' compilation. Like someone that goes bowling for the first time and gets five strikes and a turkey, Justin couldn't really have hoped for a better entrance.

Feeding off the energy of the San Francisco underground and mentored by fellow super producer Claude VonStroke, Justin was intrinsically involved with the development of dirtybird records, appearing on its first four releases. Justin was soon ready to take flight, releasing a string of solo EPs, which flaunted a very unique sound and garnered still more respect among fellow DJs and heavyweight's of the scene.

In 2010, such respect prompted an invitation for Justin to DJ mix Pete Tong's infamous "Essential Mix" series and also landed his felicitous placement on the front cover of DJ Magazine. Justin continued to roll out two further killer EPs on dirtybird, which were collaborations with his protégée Ardalan. "Mr Spock" earned recognition from major digital news outlet NPR as "surrounding sounds with tactful little details: the hissing white noise; that chubby, wet bass kick. This is music that doesn't need to be heard on the dance floor, though it does work awfully well there". What followed was "Lezgo", which knocked down the genre walls and pretty much remained a firm fixture in every DJ's box throughout 2011.

As well as his formidable arsenal of original productions, Justin is now equally known for his collaborations with his brother Christian as The Martin Brothers, producing such hip-hop influenced hits as 'Duckface', 'Stoopit', 'Dum'. Justin has also made his mark remixing such bona fide classics as Radiohead's 'Nude', Marshall Jefferson's 'Mushrooms', TG's 'Revox' and remixes for labels such as Fools Gold and Greco Roman, firmly establishing himself as the man to make big tracks even bigger.

2011 found Justin in the perfect position to work on his boldest project to date, his debut artist album and he couldn't be more enthusiastically happy with the results. "Ghettos & Gardens" long player will be released on dirtybird late spring 2012, with a string of stunning singles to support the release.

Demand for Justin's skills behind the decks has skyrocketed with his bookings schedule constantly crammed to capacity. With dates everywhere from Panorama Bar (Berlin), Fabric (London), Space (Ibiza) and a full album tour for summer and fall 2012, its no wonder Justin's diary reads like the dreams of a professional raver. Stateside he
continues to be a regular fixture at the Dirtybird events in San Francisco and beyond.

Music journalists typically describe Justin's sound as 'melodic and tough' with his music encapsulating both melody and emotional depth yet always with enough undeniable ass shaking properties to translate to the floor.

He remains as enthusiastic as ever to be involved in the scene. When recently questioned by Resident Advisor on what he'd be doing if he wasn't a DJ or dance music producer he just replied: "Wishing I was a DJ or music producer."

By all accounts, it's hard to tell him to wipe that smile off his face.
DJ Tennis
DJ Tennis
DJ Tennis is Manfredi Romano. Born in the 70's and raised between New Jersey, Sicily, and Parma in a family where music was such a small thing. He had no relatives that played musical instruments, nothing to play on at home, and no one giving music any considerable amount of love. Despite this, his creative and artistic attitude have always centered on music - singing, playing and collecting weird and noisy musical instruments at every turn. In 1988, before starting computer science studies at Pisa University (to please his grandfather) he was already playing and singing in college bands and had an indie rock radio show on a local radio station in Palermo.

Recording bands, organizing parties, and DJ'ing at the tennis club where he used to play as a semi-pro player (the Tennis moniker comes from his passion for that sport) all became his way to support the costs of his studies. But when he graduated he never imagined he would turn that hobby into his career. Still he became a DJ, while focusing first on promoting new underground music in his country. Manfredi is responsible for founding and developing some of the most important Italian underground musical events such as the Elita Festival in Milan, the Dissonanze Festival in Rome, and creating new marketing concepts around Italian clubbing.

During the last 2 decades Manfredi started producing music for theatre, movie soundtracks, and TV commercials. His production skills are eternally inspired from the psychedelic, dark, and melancholic sounds of the 60s, straight through to early 2000s IDM. A few of Manfredis influences include: Beach Boys, The Who, Talk Talk, Ultravox, XTC, Fugazi, June of 44, Suicide, Radiohead, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, and Plastikman.

In 2010, tired of the output of the current musical scene he collected all of his musical works and, with Thugfuckers Greg Oreck, started a new techno and pop label called Life and Death. The name of the label has a specific meaning, inspired by the Socratic maieutic process to give subtle and dead elements a new life as well as referring to the benefit and hypnotic power of music used in the mesmeric processes for brain therapy.

Tennis is based in Berlin where he also shares label experience and a studio with the innovative deep electronic duo Tale of Us. He has worked hard to create a crew of young and inspired musicians like Clockwork and Esperanza, among others.

BLOND:ISH got their kickstart into the music world after they claimed the World Air Guitar Championship title in Montreal in 2008. Since then it's been a whirlwind of gigs, music releases and a never ending mission to spread love and expand consciousness through music.

BLOND:ISH got their kickstart into the music world after they claimed the World Air Guitar Championship title in Montreal in 2008. Since then it's been a whirlwind of gigs, music releases and a never ending mission to spread love and expand consciousness through music. As members of the notorious Kompakt and Get Physical families along with a slew of other labels, Anstascia and Vivie-Ann have carved out a niche thanks to their dark, sensual club music, sultry DJ sets and outrageous, fun-loving attitude.

In the beginning there was no plan, just a chance meeting at WMC in 2007 which resulted in a cosmic bond between two house music loving visionaries and the conception of one of Montreal's midweek mangles at Cherry nightclub. Their work as promoters and DJs at the party, which was called 'BLOND:ISH', started a natural chain of events and it was only a matter of time before they decided it was time to transmit the hedonistic spirit of their debauched soiree to the rest of planet Earth.

In 2010 they packed up and shipped out of Canada to soak up all the energy and inspiration London had to offer. The influential city provided the perfect location for their musical endeavours. Stardust manifested itself in several key moments of pure magic over the following years; from an old friend connecting them to the Kompakt family and their first release with the seminal label, to M.A.N.D.Y's Philipp opening a spine-tingling set in the wonder of the Mexican jungle with 'In My Head' and welcoming them into the Get Physical crew.

A slew of original productions and gigs all over the world helped to reinforce their undying love for music and demonstrated that, where words fail, BLOND:ISH's music speaks. One of their ultimate experiences taking place at Burning Man where for the last 4 years, they could truly embrace their hippie spirit and share their ideologies with like minded people. Remixes for several high-profile artists showcased their ability to put a sly electronic BLOND:ISH spin on a myriad of styles. Electronic music legends Depeche Mode among the many recipients of their unique talents.

BLOND:ISH are now poised to embark on the next step of their mission. Taking field recordings on every trip they make, and finding inspiration during a month of downtime in Mexico, the duo have their sights set firmly on keeping that magical energy flowing, sending positive vibrations deep into the outer regions of the universe.

Based in NYC, born and bred in the Windy City, Honey is known for her unique take on the Chicago sound with inflections of the deep New York underground. In fact, Honey is one of the few dj's in recent years to defy pigeon-holing. She draws from a wide repertoire of musical styles from old school Chicago House, disco, tech house, tribal, funk, soul, and R& B. 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.

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!
Ivan Smagghe
Ivan Smagghe

After studies at Institut d'études politiques de Paris, Smagghe worked briefly at Rough Trade shop in Paris and for Nova or Magic magazine. Then, he started DJing before co-founding Black Strobe in 1997 with Arnaud Rebotini.

Ivan Smagghe extended his activities to compositions for silent films and mixing compilations.
Marques Wyatt
Marques Wyatt
Sonic love travels in many dimensions – through visceral pathways of the senses, as a uniting force on dance floors everywhere, and within movements unifying souls, states and nations. And as sonic love relates to house music, Marques Wyatt is a seminal pioneer. He's one of the few house music DJs who has managed to avoid the mantle of anonymity associated with the genre: he's a cornerstone of the Los Angeles club scene, but regularly tours the width and breadth of the states, as well as other continents. He has played at just about every major electronic conference and festival, and is one of the most respected DJs and promoters on the West Coast.

Marques' proclivity for music was birthed from his upbringing in the beachy enclave of Santa Monica. Musical influences abounded, as his father introduced him to jazz, his eldest brother was in a psychedelic funk band and his other siblings kept the house filled with sounds of iconic groups like Earth, Wind & Fire and Stevie Wonder. As an avid skateboarder, Marques was also turned on to the soundtrack of the Southern California skating culture such as Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith and The Who.

With an insatiable palate for music and adventure, Marques ventured into the world of Hollywood nightclubs at venues like "The Odyssey", where the sound of New York clubs and '80s music permeated the airwaves. He began collecting vinyl, and around the age of 18, serendipitously began DJing as a hobby via an intuitive nudge of a close DJ friend. He showed Marques his way around the decks and inevitably invited Marques to play a party with him, where he received a rare applause, and at that time grabbed Marques by the shoulders and said, "You have it". As he never planned to be a DJ, Marques claims that the music chose him. After a 1985 trip to New York to visit friends at NYU and sample a taste of the Big Apple's vibrant nightlife, his suspicions were confirmed: there was a greater world of music beyond. Inspired by the mixed crowd, various genres and electricity of Danceteria and the music of Larry Levan at Paradise Garage, and eventually befriending Frankie Knuckles (RIP) at The World, Marques returned to Los Angeles filled with inspiration, a vision and mission. He began playing and promoting his own events, in an effort to fill the city's musical void.

During the late 1980s, when house music was rarely heard outside Chicago, New York and gay clubs in LA, Marques introduced the genre to a more diverse Southern California audience via legendary parties like BBC, MAC's Garage and Does Your Mama Know. Marques traversed the California coast as the rave scene mounted, playing at his Love residency in San Francisco, where he could stay true to his signature sound. Also during this period, always true to his inner visionary, Marques continued ventures into uncharted territory by introducing Los Angeles to acid jazz through Brass, his unforgettable weekly event debuting live performances of high-profile acts such as Jamiroquai, Digable Planets and the Brand New Heavies, who he also deejayed with on tour dates.
In 1993, Marques hosted Louie Vega at his Prague night. Louie then invited Marques to New York to play the opening set in the main room at Sound Factory Bar. The landmark event cemented Marques' popularity in New York, and he was regularly invited back to play Sound Factory Bar and Giant Step. In the ensuing years, his prowess as a talented DJ led to an invitation by Louie Vega to play the high profile Masters at Work party in Miami at WMC in 1996. Marques now refers to this as his "coming out party," as the performance put him on the radar both domestically and internationally.

Marques' keen sixth sense for creating epic parties culminated in his weekly house institution, DEEP, now going strong in its sixteenth year in Los Angeles. He has introduced Los Angeles to a veritable who's who of house music, from the legendary Frankie Knuckles (RIP) to the Martinez Brothers. Marques has provided the gateway to house for thousands of people through DEEP, and events are now held coast to coast at Mighty and Public Works in San Francisco and Cielo in New York. Marques is also committed to merging his love of music and yoga via events such as his recent collaboration with Exhale Center for Sacred Movement, DEEP Exhale.

Marques traveled the world to play events as diverse as Burning Man, Miami's Winter Music Conference, the BPM Conference in Mexico, Pacha in Ibiza, and London's Ministry of Sound. Yet any native Angeleno will tell you that he always put his City of Angels first, with an unwavering commitment to its community and growth. As a result, he gets a lot of love there—a rarity, as it's not unusual for a DJ to feel more appreciated while on the road. Marques' sets are known to turn huge dance floors into an intimate ritual. He recently played landmark events at LA's Grand Park and KCRW's "Made in LA" Series at Hammer Museum, and was also voted Best DJ of 2014 by LA Weekly.
Marques has channeled his gifts in the studio, releasing tracks and remixes on revered labels such as Om, Strictly Rhythm, King Street, Nervous and Yoshitoshi. While he took a break from production, he has now ended the hiatus. He explains, "Over the past couple of years, I've been focused on making sure DEEP's foundation is steady, and musically taking in a lot, as there are so many genres to draw inspiration from. I make music when my soul has something to express. I'd never want to force the creative process, because I know what that sounds like." Ahead of Marques' re-entry into the studio, he welcomes the forthcoming release of Soul Clap's remix of his dance floor anthem "For Those Who Like to Get Down" on Om Records.

Marques continues to spread his brand of aural love in Los Angeles, and through touring the width and breadth of the United States and other continents. He globe-trots everywhere from Los Angeles to New York, Shanghai to Barcelona, and Tel Aviv to Dubai with the mission to bring musical unity, love and celebration of life to all souls in his pathway.
Man Power
Man Power
Man Power began as an anonymous musical enigma, incorrectly identified as DJs John Talabot, Michael Mayer, Andrew Weatherall. After two years he decided to drop the veil and Englishman-in-Mexico Geoff Kirkwood stepped forward. However, somehow the lines have been blurred since the projects conception, leaving Geoff now unsure as to where he ends and Man Power begins.
A burgeoning identity crisis and ideas above his/their station seem to have paid off though, with the project having seen Man Power appear around the world at places including Glastonbury Festival, Air Tokyo, fabric London and now his weekends are spent careering his music around places such as New York, Mexico City, and Tel Aviv.
Man Power’s music draws inspiration from wilfully smart-arsed influences ranging from early 20th century modernism, to late 20th century New Wave, via experimental cinema, proto-house, proto-techno, in fact proto-everything (you know, like when it was still cool, yeah?). His somewhat experimental and pop textured debut eponymous album on Jennifer Cardini’s Correspondant label released in 2015 was received with effusive reviews across the board and sits comfortably with his other eminent releases on the likes of Hivern Discs, Throne of Blood, Infine and Ene Japan.
2016 seems primed to see Geoff add further confusion towards the nature of his true self, as he embarks on an as yet unannounced ambitious conceptual music project and live performance, expanding on his unconventional yet adaptable musical journey.
David Harness
David Harness
David Harness is one of the most popular DJ/producers in the San Francisco Bay Area club scene. He has been described as 'a man who lives, breathes and emanates everything that is beautiful about deep house music and classic garage.' David is considered a 'rising star' within the dance community. As a military brat, David Harness traveled the world extensively during his childhood. 'Regardless of which country I was in, I always heard American music, namely R&B. This little bit of familiarity really helped me feel secure in a lot of different places.' With influences varying from Barry White and the Love Unlimited Orchestra, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, Quincy Jones, the Jackson Five, Stevie Wonder, Parliament Funkadelic, the Isley Brothers and First Choice, it is easy to see why funk and soul have always been strong elements in his sound. In 1990, David began DJ'ing at the After Dark in his hometown of Monterey, California. As his popularity grew past the boundaries of Monterey, he was invited to establish a residency at Tilt and the Sound Factory in San Francisco. In 1994, David opened and DJ'ed at the hip and popular club Lift at Club Dv8 in San Francisco. His success as a club DJ led to a DJ spot on commercial radio. In 1994, David joined the popular radio show Your Mama's House on the San Francisco Bay Area's number one radio station KMEL FM. Your Mama's House was the only 'true' house mix show on any major radio station in Northern California. As part of the Your Mama's House crew, David played a key role in exposing the masses to House Music in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 1995 David kicked off a seven year residency at San Francisco 's legendary Club Universe — San Francisco's hottest Saturday night party. At Club Universe, David had the opportunity to play with many New York's legendary DJs like Frankie Knuckles, Tony Humphries, Little Louie Vega, Tedd Patterson, Dave Morales, Danny Teneglia, London's Ricky Morrison, Los Angeles' Marques Wyatt, San Francisco's Miguel Migs, Mark Farina and Kaskade — just to name a few. His growing popularity accelerated David's natural progression into production. In 1996, David was selected to spearhead the studio production for a national marketing campaign for the McDonald's Deluxe Burger. Also in 1996, David begin his ongoing residency at The End Up Sunday T-Dance — San Francisco's longest running dance party. In 1998, he released a CD for Universe Sounds and Twisted America, 'Welcome to the Universe'. This innovative CD, recorded live from Club Universe, reflects San Francisco's unique 'sound' and introduced the world to David Harness. Recognizing his talent, Twisted America quickly signed him to produce his first single, 'Get It Together', for a Twisted America compilation entitled 'A Little Bit of the Old, A Lot of the New'. David also started his ongoing residency at Fag Fridays in San Francisco in 1998 where he is still rockin' the floor. In 1999, David started Taboo in San Francisco's Mission District. Taboo started out of David's love of House music and his desire to provide a showcase for Bay Area talent as well as internationally known DJs. This ongoing party attracts a loyal crowd of househeads from around the San Francisco Bay Area and the globe to the weekly blending of spirit and soul. In September 2000, David launched DHJ Productions and has established himself as a respected producer and remixer. To date, David has worked on projects featuring artists such as Mary J. Blige, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, Simply Red, Alicia Keys, Floetry, Donnie McClurkin, India Arie, *NSYNC and Donnell Jones. A collaborative effort with DJ/producers Chris Lum of Abitare Music, Jay J of Moulton Studios, and Charles Spencer of LoveSlap has resulted in several independent releases. David has appeared in articles and interviews in Billboard Magazine, Paper Magazine, Surface, XLR8R, Streetsounds, Sweater, HX, Next, URB, DJ Mag and the SF Bay Guardian. David Harness' passion, talent and creativity has definitely created a new page in the history of house music.
DJ Garth
DJ Garth
Garth was one of four DJs who, along with Jeno (noisefromthevoid), Thomas Bullock (Rub n Tug, Map of Africa), & Markie Mark reinvigorated San Francisco's dance scene in the 90's with their iconic Wicked parties. His Grayhound Recordings label is credited with defining & capturing the west coast sound from that period. Many of Garth's productions working with ETI and Markie Mark are represented on the label along with a slew of definitive west coast artists like Harvey, RaSoul and Perry Farrell. Wicked's 13 year reign as the city's beloved renegade sound system ended in 2004 and Garth & Jeno have been fanning the flames of conscious hell raising with their Back2Back parties since. In 2007 Garth started the Golden Goose re-edit label with James Glass. Under the guise of King & Hound they re-edit under-valued dance cuts that stand to benefit from a 12" release.

Galen
Galen
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.

Anthony Mansfield
Anthony Mansfield
Anthony Mansfield has been on a 20-year journey through the world of psychedelic dance music ever since attending the now-legendary full moon massives of San Francisco' s Wicked Crew in the early 90' s. Anthony spent the rest of the decade in New York, spreading the gospel of deep house across the Empire State with a late- night radio show, his 8-year-running weekly, and the countless underground parties that gave birth to his own crew, HectorWorks Soundsystem. After an exhausting and debaucherous 2-year run as GM, talent booker, and resident DJ at upstate' s largest live music venue, The Odyssey, Anthony was ready to return to San Francisco.

Anthony hit the West Coast running in 2001, joining his old friend DJ M3 as resident DJ and co-promoter of the infamous Green Gorilla Lounge in a string of successful weekly club nights, true seat-of-your-pants underground parties, and blown- out monthly events across the Bay Area, with some of the city' s and world' s best names in dance music. Anthony has left his mark on Burning Man for the last decade as well, at the Space Lounge, Green Gorilla, and Disco Knights sound camps, with a trail of exhausted dancers and party people in the wake of his many epic sets on the Playa.
DJ M3
DJ M3
Dj M3 has staked his everlasting claim in the Bay Area music community in 1990 as a key promoter and DJ, roles for which he took on the abbreviated appellation of M3, short for “Makes Me Move”. Begun as a fluid, down-tempo approach, M3 eventually evolved his sound to the expression of house and techno bangers he is known for today. Manny quickly developed his own legendary party brand Green Gorilla Lounge and progressed to sharing the decks with industry icons with bookings across the globe. This further developed Manny’s acumen for rhythm and cultural finesse, priming him for several collaborations with Phil ‘Rene’ Collis of Bachelor’s of Science and setting the stage for their alliance as the stealthy duo Sleight of Hands. Having seen releases through his own label Green Gorilla Lounge, as well as Smoke ’N’ Mirrors, Om, Sirenum, and Chillin’ Records. M3 has notably performed at the San Francisco Treasure Island Music Festival 2014, Outsidelands 2013, and Coachella 2013 as Sleight of Hands. And Coachella as Dj M3 2012

With past projects including the Tweakin’/ Black Pancake record shop and Triple Crown Nightclub under his belt, Manny has moved forward embodying his passion for music as of the Father of record label Green Gorilla Lounge and co-owner of SF nightlife staple Monarch nightclub along with Chris Smith of Om Records.When not in the studio, M3 can be found tearing it up pushing his signature sound DJing in clubs, bars, and undergrounds all over the city. Presenting with Green Gorilla, Manny also co-hosts the annual “Fully Loaded” in collusion with the infamous Sunset Crew. Suffice it to say, there is no doubt M3 is thoroughly invested in his lifelong relationship with the 1s and 2s. Looking to the future. 2017 will see a kick of release from green gorilla lounge.

Gravity
Gravity
The Chicago area music scene provided the perfect backdrop for the early days of Rob Adelmann’s (aka DJ Gravity) funky, eclectic influences. Yet despite growing up in the birthplace of house music, Rob’s first real exposure to the genre came in 1997, while living in London. The thriving underground scene of UK’s capital sucked him in and left a lasting impression. In 1999, while living in Colorado, Rob bought turntables and began teaching himself the art of mixing, recalling advice he picked up from friends in London.

Within 6 months he found himself playing bars and clubs in Colorado. While living in Boulder, Rob had the good fortune of meeting future Pink Mammoth cofounder Ryel K, who invited him to camp and DJ at Pink Mammoth during Burning Man 2005. The Burning Man culture and his experience DJing there had such a profound effect that he was inspired to move to San Francisco shortly after.

Once in SF, Rob quickly became an integral part of Pink Mammoth’s foundation. Over the last six years Rob has DJed every Pink Mammoth event in venues all over SF, as well as parties throughout North America, including Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Denver and Calgary. In addition to playing headlining sets, Rob has had the opportunity to share the decks with Lee Burridge, Marques Wyatt, Collette, Jimpster, Spirit Catcher, Justin Martin, Random Soul, Hed Kandi, Miguel Migs, AstroGlyde, DJ T and The Martinez Brothers.

Although rooted in funky and deep house, Rob’s sound is not easily defined. Whether playing an uplifting daytime party, epic sunset/sunrise set, or a peak time nightclub slot, his main source of inspiration comes from the dancefloor. Rather than sticking to a plan or sub-genre of house, Rob’s sets are based on reading the crowd and creating an irresistible vibe and unforgettable experience.

Sepehr
Sepehr
Booming 808s fueled the day parties and weekend festivals spread across the San Francisco Bay Area that were Sepehr's stomping grounds. Driven by a desire to better understand this energy, he would dive deep into the underground culture of warehouses and sweaty basements pulsing to the beat of an even more evocative sound.

With this new world came a swell of knowledge that evolved Sepehr's sonic understanding. Intertwining this new foundation with past influences ranging from hip hop to post-hardcore allowed him to construct a sound all his own. His productions and DJ sets have synthesized the subtle nuances of minimal, the primal atmosphere of techno, and the ghetto sleaze of booty.

Sepehr has found his place whether it be on one of countless top 10 charts compiled by world class artists or on a festival stage in South America. His plethora of inspirations and ideas have already caused heads to turn globally, and will come together to shake dance floors for years to come alongside his seabound friends and family, Tech Dolphin.

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…

Julius Papp
Julius Papp
Julius Papp is one whose dedication to music has propelled his career as a producer and DJ in the electronic music scene. His dance music roots lie in Disco of the 70's and New Wave of the 80's. Presently living in San Francisco, he was born and raised in Montreal, Canada, and got tuned into dance music through the city's flourishing club scene and diverse radio broadcasts. He started collecting vinyl records in the mid 70's and took to the turntables in 1985, scoring his first major club gig two years later.

Hearing the non-stop flow of music and observing the booth where the DJ seamlessly blended each selection were early influences for Julius. Later influences included reading about parties that were piloted by talented music programmers that even today, influence the youngest of aspiring DJ's - legends like David Mancuso at The Loft & Larry Levan at the Paradise Garage in New York City to Frankie Knuckles at The Warehouse in Chicago and Tony Humphries' weekly at Zanzibar in New Jersey. Always inspired by the music listed in those articles, Julius would shop for those titles that would later become classics, worshipped by their discerning audiences. To this day, his goal is to keep expanding his foundation in music by being open-minded and eclectic in absorbing the music that truly touches him.

That open-minded attitude is what Julius uses to fine-tune his musical palette, which gives him a dominant sound that exudes a deep and soulful perspective. That dominant sound is House Music – which to him, is about an uplifting positive message. People coming together in unity, with no barriers or restrictions, but rather, with tolerance and the spirit of music, unifying everyone on the dance-floor. That being said, he blends various musical styles together -including Soul, Latin, Afro, Disco, Jazz and Electronic sounds with such fluidity, that it is difficult at times to put a defining stamp on his sound. Contributing to that is his willingness to take a chance. He always tries to push the envelope by introducing music that deserves exposure, taking his audience on a musical journey with various mood and energy changes.

Not content to limiting his ambitions in the DJ booth, Julius began producing music in 1994. The studio was another outlet for Julius' creative ideas to flow. His first release was a down-tempo project on the Acid Jazz tip. He also drew attention as part of the jazz and funk scene in San Francisco via the Mushroom Jazz parties alongside resident Mark Farina.

As Julius' production catalogue grew, so did the amount of labels he released music on including – long tenured labels like Nervous Records (NYC), King ST (NYC), Large Music (Chicago) and OM (SF), to signings on Soulfuric Recordings (FL) and Kenny Dope's "Dope Wax" (NYC) label, as well as Bob Sinclar's own
Yellow Productions in Paris.

He also ventured into the label arena with his own "NeoDisco Music" imprint. Named after the sound that continues to inspire him – the label offers him an alternate outlet to release his own productions.

As a veteran in the club scene, Julius has refined a style of dance music that has taken him beyond the boundaries of San Francisco to global praise and recognition. Being nominated as "Most Innovative Producer" at the 2004 House Music Awards is a perfect example of that. Putting him in the company of other nominated producers like, Joey Negro, Osunlade, DJ Gregory, DJ Spinna and Ben Watt was an absolute honor for him.

In January, 2012, Julius's collaboration with Lisa Shaw entitled "Way Back" (DJ Smash Brooklyn Tech Remix), was featured on the CBS crime drama, CSI: Miami.
