NICK WILLIAMS LIKES HIS MUSIC LIKE HE LIKES HIS FOOD. HE KNOWS WHAT WORKS: A LITTLE SWEET, A LITTLE SPICY, A PINCH OF SALT, AND MARINATED WITH EMOTION. MAJORLY INFLUENCED BY THE SOUNDS OF THE WEST COAST, NICK WILLIAMS ALWAYS COOKS UP WARM, SMOOTH, TASTY BEATS. AS A RECENT TRANSPLANT TO BERLIN VIA SAN FRANCISCO, HE IS CONTINUING TO MARRY HIS LOVE OF ALL THINGS TASTY AND GROOVY BOTH ON THE DANCEFLOOR AS WELL AS IN THE KITCHEN.
His roots stem began in Seattle, where he began DJing. With a fair helping of all things house, dub, minimal, funk, techno, breakbeat, and jazz, Nick always knew just the right combination of key ingredients to whip up gourmet delicacies. After moving to San Francisco, he seasoned his abilities and started producing parties, undergrounds, and podcasts with his WERD. project. On the flipside, his passion for food and wine has taken him throughout the world as a sommelier, fine dining server, and into restaurant management. Beginning in early 2007, he co-created WERD., a collective of like-minded individuals that love dance music more than girls love chocolate with a side of Crème Brûlée. As the sounds of electronic dance music changed over the years, together the WERD. crew has built one of the most promising Sunday night parties in San Francisco at Otis Lounge, and now at Monarch in their eighth year rocking out every week. You will be pleased to know that he has been concocting up his own flavors in the musical kitchen as well. One thing is for sure; once the technique has been perfected in the studio, watch out, he will be coming to a serve a main course near you. You will find that Nick's true calling is the creation of a total experience; substance, precision and presentation are part of the total package. Sit back, have an aperitif, and enjoy!
Both of these ladies were born in Atlantic City, NJ which obviously explains a lot. Their father is a musician and was the Director of Entertainment at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino. They grew up around serious talent, even kicking it with the Rat Pack at early ages.
They moved to California before they were in New Jersey long enough to develop accents and became best friends early on. As kids, they made up many dance routines to Ace of Base's "The Sign" album and religiously listened to TLC's "Crazy Sexy Cool", even dressing like the group one year for Halloween. Between their mother and father, sharing a nearly 20-year age difference, they were exposed to a broad range of musical tastes.
In their adulthood, Laura moved to San Francisco and Ava to Orange County, and the sisters realized they weren't capable of being away from another. After Ava finished college, she promptly moved up the city so she and her sister could once again kill it on the regular. Thank God.
