Senor Oz (Afrolicious, ESL Music)
Formerly a radio dj at University of Kansas, he relocated to SF where he created and cultivated with his brother Oz McGuire San Francisco's legendary weekly party at the Elbo Room called Afrolicious. Working with musicians from all over Africa and the diaspora, this project explores his deep admiration and respect for the rhythms, sounds and musicians from Africa. During one of his gigs he passed a demo to Thievery Corporation's SF transplant Rob Garza, Garza who really vibed the music and thought the project had potential soon decided to produce the project, the 1st EP entitled a "Dub for Mali" will be released this summer on ESL music.

Kimmy Le Funk
Kimmy aka Kimmy Le Funk is San Francisco's Kimmy Needham. A music lover, fun, cool chic and vinyl junky. Kimmy learned how to DJ from San Francisco's finest House and Disco / Funk DJs. Within no time Kimmy caught the vinyl bug and began digging for records daily in her neighborhood , Haight St San Francisco. Sure enough the energetic funk-tress began picking up gigs throughout SF and within a relative short amount of time has become one of SF favorite vinyl selectors. Her style ranges from classic funk, disco, house music, psycadelic and cosmic.
DJ M3 aka Manny is a major influence in SF’s music scene. Launching the Green Gorilla Lounge DJ crew and record label in the 90s, which organized and played many of SF’s most notable underground events. Manny was soul proprietor of Lower Haight’s vinyl music boutique ‘Black Pancakes’, which led to the opening of the The Triple Crown nightclub and now his most recent collaborative project Monarch. M3 continues to rock San Francisco and looks forward to upcoming music release in early 2014, with Sleight of Hands on Smoke N' Mirrors.
