DJ, Producer, Remixer, label boss… For a decade now Graeme 'Sinden' has stealthily established himself as one of the leaders of dance music as we know it. Well documented and support collaborations (Shadow Child, SBTRKT, AC Slater) with an array of scene leaders demonstrate the level at which he operates
The past few years have seen a busy release schedule for Sinden, collaborative EP's and remixes for Night Bass, a 2 track EP for Tchami's Confession label and an album for leading Japanese house label label Sushi Records are just a few of many highlights.
On the remix front his production touches are in high demand - his reworks for Cause & Affect, Bobby Brackins, Paces and Alison Wonderland to name a few are still firmly on the USB's of the main players.
Sinden is helming an exciting new project entitled 'Houseline' which he carefully curated and visualized. Working alongside Insomniac Records, the first compilation was released earlier and enjoyed widespread acclaim and success. Taking inspiration from the spirit of no ego ‘music focused’ warehouse raves and the enterprising bass bent House and Garage music he pioneered, this label kickstarts a new and exciting chapter in an already colorful music career.
Sinden has also partnered with some great brands in the past 12 months further showcasing those production tricks and DJ skills. He performed at Roland's prestigious 909 launch day event and at the Roland stage at NAMM 2017. Topping off a very busy year (EDC Vegas, Electric Forest, Middlelands, Beyond Wonderland, Life Is Beautiful, Night Bass Summer Phases etc) he also delivered a performance video for Serato, cementing his status as an official artist for the innovating New Zealand based company.
Syd is one of the longest running fun creators in the Bay Area dance music and underground arts scene. He's been called a "Renaissance man of the West Coast scene", and with good reason. The founder of the legendary Opulent Temple collective, best known for their premierre sound stage at Burning Man, Board Member and key producer of the San Francisco LovEvolution event (formerly known as LoveFest & Love Parade), founder of Opel Productions, throwing club events and 'parties with purpose' in San Francisco for 10+ years, a child psychologist with a Doctorate in transpersonal psychology, a music producer, blogger on social issues, and of course - a DJ.
On the DJ tip, Syd is one of the West Coast's top talents, consistently being voted in the Top 10 San Francisco Dream Team poll, and playing the biggest events in California party land. Playing a versatile range of electro house breaks, and tech funk,, he's been personally tapped to open and close for the varied likes of Underworld, Moby, Tiesto, Stanton Warriors, Armin Van Burren, and the list goes on. Syd knows what to do in any situation to bring the universal vibe of dance music. His debut single 'Who Are You' on Groove Quest, recently cracked the crowded Top 30 electro house chart on Beatport. His sets are known for walking the fine line between the gritty and the pretty, and he has a musical range seldom seen in party land.

Our man Hoj was an Opel resident back in the day before he started blowing up and touring the world, being a mainstay on Robot Hearts's playa line up, and playing alongside Lee Burridge at some of his biggest 'All Day I Dream' events and starting his own label with Lee - Tone & Tale.
Come hang with Hoj and friends in the intimacy of Monarch as we welcome him back again to one step where it all started. Last time we had Hoj out at Monarch it sold out so pre-sales recommended!
