As we all know The Caribbean islands including St. Maarten, Haiti, St. Barts, and The Dominican Republic, were recently devastated by Hurricane Irma. Irma has wrought devastation on the island nations, killing people, ripping off rooftops, destroying homes and businesses, shutting down electrical grids and sending rivers of debris flowing through streets. Here in San Francisco, we’re all very blessed to live in such a beautiful city and to call this welcoming community our home.

With that in mind, we’d like to pay it forward in any way we can. So, Dec 22nd The Great Northern and Common Ground will be coming together to throw one hell of a party with all proceeds to benefit the wonderful people of the Caribbean Islands. So come party with a purpose with us and give back to communities less fortunate than our own.

Legendary for his role in the birth of the electronic music scene in the Baltimore / Washington DC area, Charles Feelgood has built a reputation as a DJ in the international dance community through his versatile remix skills and a a Dj style that incorporates many styles of House Music.

An Integral part of the Baltimore/DC scene, Charles if often credited with helping put the scene on the house music map. In the early nineties he joined forces with fellow DJ Scott Henry to launch Fever, a club event that introduced the sounds of electronic music to his hometown. The first event of its kind in that region, the night exploded in popularity almost immediately, attracting upwards of 2,500 people. Featuring such top-notch, internationally renowned talent as Paul Van Dyk, Derrick Carter, and Carl Cox, the biweekly event ran for over 7 years.

Maintaining a seven-year residency at Fever helped springboard Feelgood's danceable brand of house to widespread exposure across the East Coast. His popularity quickly bloomed thanks in part to his legendary mixed series, "Time to Get Ill." His first major label release came on Warner Brothers Imprint F111. He soon developed a club-heavy touring schedule that regularly took him to famed clubs all over the East and West Coasts, Canada, Europe, Asia and South America. In 1999 Charles Moved to LA and has since been ingrained in the SoCal EDM scene, playing Clubs and Festivals from SanFrancisco to SanDiego. "Being based in such a culturally diverse music scene was really a catalyst for me to experiment with my sets and really begin to mix it up a bit ".

Charles has been busy in the studio as usual, with several releases making it in the top 100 Chart on Beatport and top ten on several digital music sites worldwide. In 2010 Charles saw several releases on Major and Independent labels such as Instereo and Burn The Fire - remixing everything from Lady Gaga to P Diddy, and a breakout track called "Hands" on Ultra that made the Beatport Top 100 chart several weeks running with an Alex Kenji remix. Look for the new Mix Cd on Dirty Fabric Chicago to hit the streets in 2011 with several of his own original tracks.

Constantly in demand all over the world for his ability to light up dance floors with his sets of funky or tech drenched house, Feelgood has received numerous accolades in his fifteen year career. These include being named Baltimore's Best DJ several years, and being included in Dj magazines top 100 Dj's several years running. Playing gigs from as far away as Russia for the Audi Car Company to working the crowd at 2007's Cochella Festival - Charles is the consummated dance floor rocker - summing up his musical mission in one sentence: "I just want to do what the name implies, to make people have a good time and go home with a great feeling.

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.
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!
Joey Alaniz
Joey Alaniz
His older brother was a mobile dj. At the age of 14, Joey would sneak in to his brothers studio when he was gone and scratch the shit out of anything he could get his hands on. Back then it was all hip hop but when those A. sides couldn't be played anymore, he discovered the B. side dance tracks and was instantly hooked.

His sound selection and journey-ess programming has taken him to play in far off lands like Kenya, Mexico, Hawaii, New York and all the major clubs in San Francisco. He held down a 3 year residency at the legendary San Francisco night club, The End Up doing Sunday Mass.

Now he spends his days mastering the art of fried rice, whiskey consumption, looking busy while not doing anything at all and working on original material which he will be releasing this year. He also does a new party in San Francisco called Common Ground which is now on its third year and counting which I hear is kinda sorta of amazing. Check out his soundcloud below. If you like what you hear, please follow him and leave a comment. Thank you, enjoy and see you on the dance floor.
