WICKED SOUND SYSTEM proudly present...


with special guest DJ THREE

Celebrating a very limited 12" VINYL release of WICKED RECORDS 006 & 007. Copies available on the night. More info soon..

We've been at this too many years to keep track but Chris Milo (AKA DJ Three) has been there all along, a legend in his own bathrobe, holding court first in Florida, now NYC reminding us that the West Coast doesn't hold a monoploly on all night psychedelic partying. Hallucination Records? The very same.

It was at Wicked (Club Townsend, anyone?) some 20 years ago where THREE made his San Francisco debut and we are thrilled he has agreed to join GARTH, JENO & MARKIE once again for our annual roof raiser in the City.

It's time to get WICKED - and DANCE! X


21+ w/ID. $25 at the door or $20 presale

DJ Three
DJ Three
Currently residing in New York City, Three has been tirelessly holding the flag for underground electronic music in the US since his rise out of the sunny state of Florida in the early 90's. In that time, he's emerged as one of the brightest DJ talents in the US and continues to be a true inspiration for many of us. Three's tour dates show both diversity in audience and a genre-bending passion for good music; he's held residencies at NYC's Twilo, Cielo (Robots), Love and Blk Market Membership, as well as Florida's legendary Simon's while playing lauded guest spots at San Francisco's Wicked party, Fabric (UK), Panorama Bar (Berlin), Blk Market Membership (NYC) and forward thinking events like Japan's Labyrinth Festival and Australia's Rainbow Serpent.

Three's label Hallucination Limited was started in 2003 by Three as an off-shoot of the seminal US 90's label Hallucination Recordings which was founded by dance music legends Rabbit In The Moon. Hallucination Recordings was responsible for some of the freshest techno (licensing the Hazed - Bells EP to Richie Hawtin's Plus 8 label in '94), proper electro (miami bass legends Dynamix 2 and Jackal & Hyde) and benchmark releases like Second Hand Satellites - Multiple Mirrors EP (produced by Three and Sean Q6). Armed with a sound that borrows equally from vintage acid-house, techno and underground electronica Hallucination Limited is held in the highest regard getting attention from a wider audience than most most reach. One of the ethos of Hallucination has always been to release music that years later that is still relevant and feels timeless. A perfect example of this is Cassy's Circo Loco mix CD for the July 2011 issue of Mixmag... which contains no less than five tracks from the label catalog! Three's eclectic taste as a DJ and producer shine through just as brightly in his choices for the label.

Following the path of his appeal as a DJ, his rare forays into producing have become staples for DJs of all styles. Three's remix of Mish Mash feat. Lois - 'Speechless' (Lost in Translation mix) for heavyweight UK label Crosstown Rebels received praise across the board including "pick of the month" in the 15 year anniversary issue of DJ Magazine while other productions such as the underground staple that is Second-Hand Satellites and remixes as Three A.M. (with David Christophere of Rabbit In The Moon) like U.N.K.L.E. feat. Ian Brown - 'Reign' continue to be played on dance floors around the world from DJs as diverse as Harvey, Ricardo Villalobos and Lee Burridge.

Coming from the school of American DJs like Josh Wink and Doc Martin, Three has a wide ranging musical palate akin to Andrew Weatherall or Laurent Garnier, and was recently featured as part of DJ Times Magazine's DJX20 Anniversary profile series as one of twenty DJs who embody the spirit of the American underground along such contemporaries as Josh Wink and Claude Von Stroke.

Aside from his natural ability on the decks, Three sets himself apart from the rest of the pack by presenting eclectic sounds with an open-minded attitude towards everything he does. From DJ sets to musical output, Three is a "DJ's DJ" who has always leaned toward the cutting edge without losing touch with the roots of house and techno.
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.
"Wicked Crew" founder, San Francisco Full Moon Party pioneer, Come-Unity resident and 90s West Coast dance music magician. Still doing it, full time. Current projects include the spontaneous "Noise From The VOID" radio show, with an almost 10 yr run of live streaming. And the Noise From The VOID vinyl label, launching in 2015.
