Rich Korach
Rich Korach discovered underground electronic music in 1994, finally encountering the sound that would transform the rest of his life. Growing up just north of Detroit, Rich witnessed performances from some of the early pioneers of techno. Shortly after immersing himself in the underground warehouse scene in Detroit, he became an active DJ himself. The next decade included such highlights as: being a resident DJ for Detroit’s legendary production company, Paxahau, playing gigs at: the Detroit Electronic Music Festival (2005 and 2008), Space – Ibiza, Weekend Club – Berlin, and all across the U.S. Rich even had an impromptu tag session with one of his musical heroes of the time, Richie Hawtin, in 2005.

In 2008, Rich moved to San Francisco to thwart the cold and live in one of the most diverse and beautiful cities in America. Since then, his performances in the Bay Area underground have caused quite the stir, resulting in a residency with promotions powerhouse As You Like It (AYLI) and a steadily increasing demand for performances. He has played alongside a wealth of artists, including Tiger and Woods, Deniz Kurtel, Lee Burridge, Matthias Tanzmann, Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts, Walker Bernard, Christina Chatfield, Mike Huckaby, Steffi and Lee Curtiss – and that was just 2011. To say Rich Korach’s sound is an instant classic is understood to those who’ve become converts to his shows. His is an insatiable appetite for the unexpected, which makes watching his next move upward and onward such a joy.

Deep Blue is all about great underground electronica music spun by professional DJs and producers who specialize in moving dance floors. We created Deep Blue events to share the music we love spun by the DJs that we love from around the world. Deep Blue events are held in a comfortable and chill atmosphere where music fans can focus on the music. It sounds simple, but not everyone can do right. We don't book great producers that only have 1-3 hits and the rest of their set can't get people to dance. Its all about keeping the groove and the energy to keep the dance floor moving till the venue closes.

Expect a night of creative and forward thinking house and techno with DJs that we love. Expect a lot of hands in the air moments with a lot of energy on the dance floor.

Deep Blue locations and venues are dark spaces that are a cross between a warehouse and a large loft, the local DJ line-up is a collection of late-night pioneers that have each affected the SF after-hours scene in their own way, and the energy on the dance floor is unforgettable... you will get sucked right into the DEEP BLUE.
