An international shapeshifting duo, KMLN (pronounced “Kameleon”) unites Italian producer / multi-instrumentalist Christopher Tooker and Canadian producer /fashion designer Shawna Hofmann. May it be a prime time or sunrise set, they adapt and deliver sets that blow your mind and bring your dance skills to the next level. Live instruments, syncopation, organic meets modern, future meets past. As interplanetary travelers and cultural explorers, the KMLN ship bends time through sound, blending elements of deep house/techno and global/future bass, moving through tempos with layers and layers of mind altering colors.
With the support of artists such as Nico Stojan, Acid Pauli, Bedouin, Damian Lazarus, Mira, DOP, Nicola Cruz and more, KMLN keeps surprising and raising the bar hitting # 8 top 100 releases, # 4 deep house, # 4 electronica /downtempo on Beatport. With write ups and features on publications such as XLR8R, Dancing Astronaut, Ear Milk, Resident Advisor, Ibiza Voice and making it into Beatport’s "must hear deep house”, their music is found on labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Sol Selectas, Touch of Class and Endless.
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.
With a global upbringing and roots in San Francisco, Torie’s sound is an eclectic blend of many influences. She interweaves elements of deep and tech house, techno and tribal playa tech to tell a captivating story of sound and bring newfound life to the dance floor. As a resident DJ of ICARUS – a Burning Man art car and music collective – she draws inspiration from the dusty plains of the playa and the interstellar endeavors of the car and its motley crew.
$10.00 - $20.00

You're Welcome is opening the doors for you and yours into a vibrant landscape of prismatic colors, living breathing dreamscapes, and luscious smooth sounds. We’ll be transforming Monarch’s lair of lust into the modern Garden of Eden: a luminous, wondrous world of flora and fauna, where your body and mind can transport to an immersive universe of imagination, love and primal groove.
With this, you are cordially invited to..
