Sébastien Léger
Sébastien Léger
Sébastien Léger has taken an unorthodox approach to his musical career resulting in a unique creative output. Over the last 20 years he has learned to adapt to the ever-changing face of Dance Music. Staying true to yourself and believing in your own abilities are the key to being able to thrive and develop over such a long period. This distinctive ability, is something only a handful of artists can call their own.
French electronic artist Sébastien was raised on music and for the last 20 years has lived and breathed every second of it encompassing an array of different genres. Whilst both his parents are classically trained musicians, it was only a matter of time before he took his first steps into this same world. Drawing his early inspirations from Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ album, which provides an eclectic journey spanning across the Rock ‘N Roll, Soul and Funk genres he has taken this mould and turned it into something entirely different and his own.
Releasing music over a 20 + year career, including 4 studio albums and countless EP’s on a variety of labels including his own imprint Mistakes Music, Einmusika Recordings, Systematic Recordings and Dubfire’s SCI + TEC. Understanding the need for reinvention is key to Sébastien’s philosophy, constantly looking for that perfect track and never standing still for too long as stagnation is not in his master plan. Neither is straight down the line Techno, injections of groove and funk are key to his signature sound that has earnt him a long and fruitful career with one key objective – Keep the dancefloor moving.
Perceptions from others and including an especially critical dancefloor community can lead to an artist to change their style and fit a certain category, however in Sébastien’s case he’s worked tirelessly to make sure he creates a musical output that is representative of his emotions and music that is for him.
Straight talking Sébastien devotes all his emotions into his music and enjoys making people feel the same way. Throughout his career, he has constantly walked the knife edge between entertaining himself and keeping the crowd moving. Considering his job as more of a hobby is a gift and one that Sébastien holds in high regard.
Looking towards the future for Sébastien, his tour schedule is packed and will see him perform in some of the world’s most sought after venues. Never straying from his musical path, he has a full album penned for 2018 as well as a handful of releases on key labels. Sébastien Leger certainly shows no signs of slowing down and invites you to ‘Open your mind, don’t except the norm’.
Evan Casey
Evan Casey
An amateur becomes an artist when he commits himself to the experience of unadulterated self-discovery. Evan Casey was already an accomplished DJ, headlining some of the most well-established and well-known clubs in Southern California and playing with top 100 DJs, when he decided to take a step back. The club circuit had become bland and he knew there was something else that would strike a more genuine chord with his true tastes.

It takes courage to make bold decisions. Through a few fateful run-ins, Evan found a new home with Desert Hearts, an intimate community rooted in house, techno and love. It was at this juncture that the unraveling of his old life became a more beautiful union of not just musical fulfillment, but also of the life-long partnerships that guide fruitful careers.

Evan’s inescapable energy permeates his presences as a DJ. His musical selection never goes unnoticed, and he is consistently filling the main rooms of underground clubs and the dusty dance floors at festivals. As he continues his journey - now as an artist, rather than an amateur - Southern California party-goers should be anxiously awaiting what’s next from Evan Casey.

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.
