Dj M3 aka Makes Me Move
Dj M3 aka Makes Me Move
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. BE ON THE LOOK OUT!

Rachel Torro
Rachel Torro
Rachel Torro is a DJ based in San Francisco, California who has spent the last five years making waves on the house music scene with eclectic and uplifting sets whenever she is in the booth. Her foray into electronic music curiously began at 15 when she found herself on a dance floor at a massive rave in Kansas City. Influenced by the likes of David Bowie to obscure German techno, Torro embarked on a journey from her home in the Chicago suburbs and headed out west to Colorado, then later to San Francisco, collecting and mixing music, while immersed in a world of colorful post-adolescent raving.

As a creative selector, Torro tests the boundaries between minimal, deep, and tech house styles, uniquely layering a blend of rich sounds, both playful and sophisticated all the same. She has an innate ability to hold the attention of a dance floor and take it long into the night, whether playing in San Francisco, Berlin or distant desert landscapes. With her previous residency at Public Works, Torro has shared the stage with the legendary Pete Tong along with NU, Hot Since 82, Mira and Lee Burridge. She is also a resident of infamous New York party collective, ZERO, known for their lavish boat parties and contrasting warehouse events. With a growing fan-base hooked on her marathon sets and unfailing warm energy on the decks, Torro is a powerful woman rising in the underground dance music community at large.
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…
dAvi A
dAvi A
Even though this DJ's career has just begun to expand, dAvi A (formerly dAvi) is no new comer to the underground electronic dance music scene, Being introduced to the LA rave scene at an extremely early age, you could say he definitely has roots in dance music, even though he enjoys, pursues, and takes inspiration from, other genres of music such as alternative,, cold wave, indie rock and post-punk. After spending his teenage years around an abundance of 90’s house and techno talent in LA. Davi moved to San Francisco at the age of 20 yrs old. After a couple short years of exploring SF's underground nightlife scene, he began collaborating and hosting one of SF’s best mix-sexuality Electro/Indie parties.. White Diamonds. After a year and a half of WD he moved to NYC to peruse fashion and study at F.I.T., and fell into the underground club kid scene of Susanne Bartsch’s parties and many more..

In 2007 dAvi A began his descent back into SF where DJing quickly took off for him, throwing a mix of different parties around SF, which included his Nu Disco/ Disco project WORKIN’ the MACHINE at SF’s former Triple Crown, as well as different parties at the famous 222 Hyde. Being good friends with (and extremely inspired by) San Francisco legendary party promoters and DJ's such as the PacificSound crew Solar, Galen and J-Bird (Sunset), the [KONTROL] team Sammy D, Nikola Baytala, Alland Byallo and many more… his style began to emerge. He also takes credit in the introduction of the members of his brother, Ryan Williams's, band PillowTalk. dAvi A has also opened for such talents as DJ Harvey, Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Tiger & Woods, Kim Ann Foxman, Justin Martin, Tone of Arc, Pezzner, Benoit & Sergio, Mark E, Clockwork and many more..
