DJ Harvey was called “the Keith Richards of dance music” by Rolling Stone Magazine as they named him one of 25 DJ's That Rule The Earth. Best put by the man himself, “You can't understand the blues until you've had your heart broken and you can't understand my music until you’ve had group sex on Ectacy.” Harvey tours the world at his own pace leaving plenty of time off for his other hobbies, surfing, collecting hi-fi, mantiques, vinyl and riding fast motorcycles.

EUG
Under the unofficial tagline “A label for music, culture and home to degenerates”, San Francisco based independent record label Public Release Recordings was founded by Eugene “Eug” Whang in 2009. The label was launched as a platform for music produced by Eug’s immediate circle of friends, and although eight years on the scope is now unmistakably international, that sense of community remains. The discography, which by the end of 2019 will comprise of 21 releases, features more than 20 contributing artists including Soulwax, Tim Sweeney, Jacques Renault, Earth Boys, Mark E, Velvet Season & The Hearts of Gold, Eric Duncan and Force of Nature. There is no definitive sound attached to the label, but rather each release is carried out as a focussed individual project, receiving its own distinct direction and treated with the utmost care and attention to detail. A long time DJ, Eug took on the role of “party promoter” due to not finding the exact party he wanted to frequent. He would start the party FACE in 2007, aiming to bridge the gap between San Francisco’s bar and club scenes. After outgrowing its small dive bar origins, Eug moved the party into larger club venues where he has hosted notables such as DJ Harvey, James Murphy, Massive Attack, 2Many DJ’s, Jamie XX, Daniele Baldelli and many more. Regardless of the size and nature of the venue, the music policy has always been about mixing things up and offering plenty of variety. This philosophy of musical diversity and anything goes, would eventually birth the FACE party mantra - “Its not a genre, it's a feeling”.
Tommy Guerrero
Tommy Guerrero
Once upon a time, the City of San Francisco gave birth to an untamed beast named Tommy Guerrero. From a very young age, the kid could skateboard up walls and down hills like no one else. He played in punk rock bands well before he could even get into the clubs legally. And he displayed an artistry in life that few folks ever even fantasize about. The guy’s resume reads like a dream- Bones Brigade skate team in the 80’s, movie appearances, co-founder of Real Skateboards and 40’s Clothing, art director for Krooked Skateboarding, and prolific recording artist- from the “Fat Jazzy Grooves” and “Another Late Night” compilations, to albums for Mo’Wax, Galaxia, Function 8, Rush [Japan], Quannum and Ubiquity, T.G. has lead a full life. Then there’s the collaborations with Lyrics Born, Jack Johnson, Curumin, Bing Ji Ling and Prefuse 73, remixes for Money Mark/Nigo, Poets of Rhythm and Shawn Lee. His band Jet Black Crayon has toured with Isotope 217 and Tortoise. Most recently his unexpected collaboration with Trevor Jackson and Ed Banger Records has everyone talking. Who could forget when Harvey remixed him as well.
Jeremy Castillo
Jeremy Castillo
Club Lonely resident, Soo Wavey familia, and all around house fiend, Jeremy Castillo plays house the way it's meant to be heard -- loud. With a nod to the classic midwestern house sound, the SF native beats up the dance floor with everything from classic to contemporary jacking house, NJ/NY garage, intimate italo disco vocal cuts, and hidden gems awaiting the right moment of the evening. Wherever he's at, you'll find him behind the decks dropping fog machine floor fillers for the heads, freaks, and everyone in between.
