Lando
Lando
Back in 2010, Lando (a.k.a. Antaeus Lando Roy) relocated to Berlin, and the city has proven to be the perfect place for the native Californian to blossom. Strains of classic house, techno, acid, and electro have always coursed through his tracks, but the German capital has allowed Lando to filter his disparate influences through a distinct lens, one that favors pulsing basslines, trippy melodies, and machine-made funk. This aesthetic carries over into his DJ sets, and explains why he's been invited to grace the decks at places like Berghain/Panorama Bar, Trouw, Fabric, Sub Club, Space, and the Dimensions Festival; moreover, it's led to a residency at Berlin's storied Tresor. (It's also prompted more frequent appearances of his revamped, hardware-driven live set.) On the release front, Lando has spent the past few years turning out increasingly impressive work for a variety of labels, including Rush Hour, Hotflush, Numbers, Icee Hot, Ultramajic, and Stillcold, and he's also been enlisted to remix the likes of Parris Mitchell, Machinedrum, Will & Ink, and Sepalcure, amongst others. Now, he's started up his own label, Myth Music, alongside fellow Berlin expat Aaron Castle (Hotflush, Boiler Room). The new imprint will begin with three releases from Lando himself, although future efforts for other labels are also in the works.

Jimmy B
Jimmy B
Jimmy B has been acclaimed amongst the finest DJs in the everlasting underground scene of the Bay Area. As a Bay Area resident growing up in the 80s, Jimmy was fortunate to be influenced by a diverse array of culture, especially In the late 90s when he was introduced to various forms of underground music around the post west coast rave scene.

As years went by the massive rave culture diminished, politics and new regulations pushed things underground into warehouses, lofts and intimate outdoor gatherings. This is when Jimmy and his creative friends really became intrigued and manifested their own party crew under the name RXFX. They spent much of their time organizing events catering to vibe-driven underground house music.

Between throwing warehouse parties in Santa Cruz, he and his friends would travel up to San Francisco and frequent the Green Gorilla Lounge, Sunset Soundsystem, DHP and Slide undergrounds. They would also hit up The Velvet Shop on Thursdays in San Jose. It was during these formative years and events that led to Jimmy’s first gigs at small gatherings and later moving into nights at local Santa Cruz venues including The Blue Lagoon, Margaritaville, 418 Project and The Catalyst.

During college, while attending the Green Gorilla and Velvet Shop parties, Jimmy befriended DJ M3 and Anthony Mansfield and they shortly took the SF newbie under their wings, getting him involved as a resident with the legendary Green Gorilla Crew. The nights of quality house music and morning grooves continued mostly in the form of Green Gorilla loft and warehouse parties. Later DJ M3 acquired The Triple Crown where the Green Gorilla Crew DJ'd frequently for three years before its close and subsequently led to the opening of Monarch where the crew continues to share magical evenings of solid house music.

Jimmy continues to be a strong supporter of the SF Bay underground, his events and DJ sets continue to hit the ears of hungry underground house fans. He has co-founded System and his own event VOX. He tours several times a year spreading the good word of west coast underground house, all while continuing to contribute to Green Gorilla Lounge and their Burning Man travels with the Disco Knights. Jimmy’s recent WERD residency at Monarch showcases weekly vibe-laden guest alongside co-residents DJ Kimmy Le Funk, Zoz, Nick Williams, Rachel Torro and Woo. It's no secret that Jimmy has his finger on the pulse of SF underground dance music.
Zoz
Zoz
Evan McDonnell prefers the Zoz approach to DJing. His sound is unbeholden to genre or tempo, with attention to detail while embracing formlessness. Zoz is known as a resident and promoter of the long running WERD parties in San Francisco. With Renzo Gorrio, he creates discoid mutations hinting at a submerged funk under the moniker Soft and Crispy. On his own, Zoz crafts shipwrecked sounds found over the dunes after beaching your sailboat on a faraway island. Always bringing unique concepts to a set, Zoz delivers equal parts depth and elevation.
