Mimosa has made a distinct mark on the west coast sound in the past two years and has become one of the top west coast exports. This young producers energy whilst performing is magnetic; the word has spread fast and Mimosa has recently shared the stage with the likes of Benga, Skream, Rusko, Datsik, Glitch Mob, Pretty Lights, Bassnectar and Flying Lotus, playing shows across the US and festivals like Coachella, Symbiosis Gathering, Burning Man and Decibel Festival. Fans know Mimosa as someone who brings a good-time energy that is as fierce as it is friendly, taking them on journeys through urban chaos and ecstasy.
Mimosa's production expertise has been in high demand and collaborations with Marines Parade's Panty Raid have been featured on Mary Anne Hobbs BBC radio show. His track "Lights In The Night" composed with Sleepyhead as 'Sexytime' was also featured on the Symbiosis Gathering 2009 Compilation along with artists like Eskmo and Beats Antique, among others. His past two releases "Flux For Life" & "Hostilis" have shown an ability to move effortlessly between Dubstep, Glitch Hop and Experimental Hip Hop.
Mimosa has been releasing on San Francisco's premiere dubstep and glitch centric label Muti Music for the past three years and will be touring extensively throughout the fall with MartyParty and Two Fresh to promote his forthcoming release "Silver Lining".
Griffin March aka BOGL, is a self-taught DJ and music enthusiast originally from Las Vegas, NV. His mystery carries deeper than the hood of his sweater; you will find yourself at one of the most unique parties you've ever been to, and all of a sudden Bogl will take over with all new exclusive music selection from his friends abroad exposing your ears to the freshest sounds you've yet to hear.
After a fast paced upbringing as a competitive skater, he found himself in San Francisco bombing its hills and going out on the town practically every night taking full advantage of its thriving music culture. Dropping into a time when beat experimentation was at an all time high, he got a job at Amoeba Records, bought a pair of used turntables and multiplied his music collection taking special interest in rare left field low frequencies. It wasn't until he was at an underground party witnessing the first appearance of Dubstep in San Francisco did his dedication to music electronic begin to rapidly intensify. In 2006 he was asked to help start a monthly party at an old shotty dive bar and invited friends such as Lazersword to play. Not even a year later the party began hitting multiple venues and undergrounds showcasing a variety of electronic genres and music labels.
Naming his parties Soundpieces, he began collaborating with different friends and venues making possible some of the most memorable Dubstep, Hip Hop, and House music parties in San Francisco. They feature himself alongside many names, some forgotten and others for their very first time in the Bay Area such as Rustie, Joker, Skream, Caspa, Hudson Mohawke, Mount Kimbie, and Shlohmo to name a few.
The charisma he carries is like that of a friendly ghost; he is kept close to your heart as one would a godfather, yet his style is so mind-boggling, he basically exists as an untouchable phenomenon. He's become known for appearing out of what might seem to be thin air, playing music that will take you to an unfathomable dimension, and then vanishing to some far off place. It makes you wonder, is it even possible Bogl really exists?
