DJ Gravity aka ROB ADELMANN
The Chicago area music scene provided the perfect backdrop for the early days of Rob Adelmann’s (aka DJ Gravity) funky, eclectic influences. Yet despite growing up in the birthplace of house music, Rob’s first real exposure to the genre came in 1997, while living in London. The thriving underground scene of UK’s capital sucked him in and left a lasting impression. In 1999, while living in Colorado, Rob bought turntables and began teaching himself the art of mixing, recalling advice he picked up from friends in London.
Within 6 months he found himself playing bars and clubs in Colorado. While living in Boulder, Rob had the good fortune of meeting future Pink Mammoth cofounder Ryel K, who invited him to camp and DJ at Pink Mammoth during Burning Man 2005. The Burning Man culture and his experience DJing there had such a profound effect that he was inspired to move to San Francisco shortly after.
Once in SF, Rob quickly became an integral part of Pink Mammoth’s foundation. Over the last six years Rob has DJed every Pink Mammoth event in venues all over SF, as well as parties throughout North America, including Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Denver and Calgary. In addition to playing headlining sets, Rob has had the opportunity to share the decks with Lee Burridge, Marques Wyatt, Collette, Jimpster, Spirit Catcher, Justin Martin, Random Soul, Hed Kandi, Miguel Migs, AstroGlyde, DJ T and The Martinez Brothers.
Although rooted in funky and deep house, Rob’s sound is not easily defined. Whether playing an uplifting daytime party, epic sunset/sunrise set, or a peak time nightclub slot, his main source of inspiration comes from the dancefloor. Rather than sticking to a plan or sub-genre of house, Rob’s sets are based on reading the crowd and creating an irresistible vibe and unforgettable experience.

In September 2007, when Tara Danielle Brooks put her first needle on a record, she had neither idea nor expectation that her passion for music would soon become her life-long career. She learned to spin records using her natural ear for music. Through this route, she escaped into the sounds that helped her discover a new meaning to life. Experiencing endless, priceless nights at parties & festivals in Southern California, Tara discovered the power to be moved & touched by electronic dance music, causing pure enlightenment. She’s a self-taught deejay who found her destiny: To express creativity through music.
Tara's passion turned into an addiction, landing her gigs from all over So Cal, Las Vegas, Miami, New York, internationally, & more. She's performed in hot spots opening & closing for many of the biggest djs in the world, including Plastikman, Green Velvet, James Zabiela, Victor Calderone, Eric Prydz, Erick Morillo, Joseph Capriati, The Martinez Brothers, Sander Van Doorn etc. She plays for Insomniac, The Bpm festival, Wmc Space Miami, Drais LV, Marquee Day Club, & played 4 events during her first Burning Man experience. She says "It was the most magical, phenomenal, twisted experience of my life, & i've never felt an energy so beautiful before."
Her heart lies in techno, tech house, deep house, & older progressive house, open minded & moved by a more underground sound & feeling. Influences: Victor Calderone, Lee Burridge, Joseph Capriati, Art Department, Guy Gerber, Nicole Moudabour, Digweed, Gaiser, & Hot Since 82. Known for powerful drops, driving rolling baselines, beautiful emotional melodies, & techno with a sexy but dark groove, she focuses on sounds that have the ability to touch her crowd.
Spending all downtime in the studio, Tara's goal is to connect & move her crowd, making them dance, let go, & feel something special to take with them.
Change is the only constant
Jason Paul aka Dj Jsun is a California native who's roots run deep in the electronic music scene. Since his introduction to house music in the early 90's, Jsun has been working hard towards supporting the progression of electronic music and helping to establish Northern California as an important hub for the collective movement of all genres of underground dance music. In 1999 Jsun Co-founded Deep Groove Society, an event collective consisting of the most talented djs, producers, and artist in Nor Cal that bring world-class dance music to remote Humboldt County, California. For the last 12 years Jsun's ability to mix rare, classic, and new styles of all music genres has established himself as one of the top Dj's in Northern California. Jsun's skills as a dj, producer, and promoter earned him a seat on the 2005 Pancha Mama tour in Nantes, France as well as other bookings at Madrid's Taboo and Club Blue in Mykonos, Greece. Jsun's dedication and love for electronic music carries over every Sunday night where he and other DGS djs are residents for their infamous Sundaze night at the Jambalaya in Arcata, CA where they are constantly raising the bar and bringing big names in all genres to perform. No matter what style of music being played, from House to Hip-Hop, Salsa to Dubstep, Jsun's ability to manipulate sound will have you moving in a way that is good for the mind, body, and soul. It is safe to say that Humboldt County's underground electronic music scene would not be what it is today if it was not for the innovation, dedication, and skill of Jsun and the other DGS musicians putting their blood, sweet, and beats out for the people to enjoy. We love music and we allow music to love us!
