Andrey Pushkarev [Circus Company, Russia]
Andrey Pushkarev [Circus Company, Russia]
Andrey Pushkarev continues to move floors with a combination of profound musical knowledge, unique professionalism, and a meticulously gathered vinyl collection. His exquisite taste, sharp technique, and uncompromising nature have won him a great deal of respect and admiration as a committed promoter of quality music.

The subtle charm of his mixes encourages a reflective, ruminative headspace; a sound which focuses on creating moods, all the while emphasizing the human aspect of music. His placid and uncompromising attitude at the decks masks an unquestioning exploration of the power of spatiality in which every track is given breathing room, and accordingly, takes on a sense of the organic.

It's a work of architectural, structural, and musical genius, ranging from deep and sensitive melodic techno, to soul-beating house grooves, creating a synesthetic aura that is almost as powerful as his record selection.

Martin Aquino [Akbal / Highgrade]
Martin Aquino [Akbal / Highgrade]
Originally hailing from Manila, Philippines and now firmly rooted in San Francisco, Martin Aquino is an exciting new name on the scene who is making waves with his underground, deep tech-house sound. It was in Manila, as a teenager, that Martin first encountered house music and developed his love for the genre. By the age of 17, Martin was regularly playing at renowned venues within the cities of Makati and Manila.

Martin soon found himself traveling back-and-forth between Manila and San Francisco. It was on the US west coast that he became familiar and fascinated with the bay area's brand of deep house. Martin's sound evolved to include this influence which he brought back to the Philippines through his in-demand DJ sets. Soon Martin made the plunge and relocated to San Francisco where he could play, produce, and thrive in the heart of its world famous dance music scene.

Martin's obsession with the music and his sound naturally led to music production. Since 2011, he's already recorded well-received singles for labels like One Records, Akbal, and Fantastic Friends. Martin's production, while riding the border between house and techno, keeps a leg deep in the sound of the underground. He strives for music that is organic and eclectic while still rawly effective in the nightclub.
