Icelandic golden child in America and New York native just back from Europe, both Holmar and Greg have both dedicated themselves to the debaucherous worship of all good things that can happen in a dark crowded room with good lighting.
Bringing together a wide variety of influences from house to minimal and disco to techno, first and foremost these guys bring the party to the party. Releases on seminal labels Life and Death, Moodmusic, Music For Freaks, Brique Rouge, Global Underground and their own label, Thugfucker Recordings are proof that there's more to them than just a couple of pretty faces.
Atish Mehta is a San Francisco-based DJ that loves to dance and make people dance. Combining his diverse taste in music, his natural ability to read a party vibe, his charismatic stage presence, Atish walks the line between a party DJ and a DJ's DJ. Atish cites Lee Burridge, Danny Howells, and Dan Bell as his biggest DJ influences, and they shine through in his "journey" approach to DJ sets. His taste covers deep house, tech-house, nu-disco, and retro synth jams, and given enough time, he's not afraid to cover all these genres over the course of a night.
Atish grew up in the Chicago suburbs listening to house music on the radio and playing suzuki-trained violin from age five. Over the years, he played in marching bands, jazz bands, rock bands, and even had a stint as a hip-hop producer. Atish eventually came full circle back to dance music after exploring the rock scene in LA then moving to San Francisco.
Since then, he's co-founded house-heads, a San Francisco crew focused on throwing underground parties at legendary Compound, and he's had a hand in throwing parties across the country with listed productions. In the last year, he's earned a monthly residency at 222 Hyde, had several mixes featured on Proton Radio, started a monthly radio show Deepartures on etn.fm, and become a regular at the Compound. His musical range has led him to open for acts like Lee Burridge, Craig Richards, Guido Schneider, Desyn Masiello, Troy Pierce, and Dyed Soundorom, to name a few. 2011 is a strong year for Atish with several notable appearances including BPM festival in Mexico, listed Tikki party in Miami, and lovefest in San Francsco…
Jimmy B has been a strong supporter of the SF Bay Underground scene for years. His events and dj sets have been catching ears since his humble beginnings in Santa Cruz, California. Later he moved to SF where he became apart of the widely known underground dj crew "Green Gorilla Lounge", and also co-founded System, and his own VOX party, it's no secret that Jimmy has his finger on the pulse of SF underground dance music.
