Rob Garza (CA)

Thievery Corporation DJ Set

Founding member of international music group Thievery Corporation, Rob Garza's career includes decades-worth of accolades as a pioneer of a flourishing electronic music movement. Originally hailing from Washington, DC, Garza's legacy includes a timeless music catalog that's still in rotation today. His infusion of electronic music with the international flavors of dub, trip hop, reggae, and bossa nova gave birth to a new era of sound that has attracted a cult following across the decades. Since relocating to San Francisco, Garza's latest experimentations take him to the far corners of the globe with solo DJ sets showcasing the best of Deep House and Nu-Disco. Ever the entrepreneur, Rob has multiple restaurants and clubs in Playa del Carmen, Mexico as well as Papa Diablo, a hand-crafted, top-shelf Mezcal made in Oaxaca, Mexico. Keep an eye out for his upcoming release this March 2015 of his debut EP “ Palace of Mirrors" releasing on his own label, Magnetic Moon Records. 2015 will be an exciting year to come!

For Garza - who’s devoted much of his life to creating a richly-textured foundation that’s defined Thievery Corporation - solo appearances for more intimate audiences inspires new creations based off the culture and styles encountered during his travels. Whether opening for Paul McCartney with Thievery, DJing in Nepal for climbers tackling Mt. Everest, or in more obscure clubs in remote corners of the world, an impeccable taste in music style resonates through the foundation of every show.

For inspiration, Garza continues to mine the sounds he’s discovered through traveling the global dance scene. "When I first came to San Francisco, I returned to my electronic roots in the dance community while also spending a great amount of time in Mexico, where there is a great dance music scene" says Garza. "There’s so much going on in terms of people taking influences from all these different genres—like house and dub and new wave and disco—and putting it all together in a way that’s very new and original and inspiring to my own music."

His 2013 "Remixes" album presents a kaleidoscope of his past work with artists like Tycho, Gogol Bordello, Afrolicious, and Federico Aubelle and marked the start of a new chapter in his eternal music odyssey. Later in 2013, Garza teamed up with Canadian deep house producer Neighbour to release "Calle del Espirtu Santo." Inspired by the spirit of his travels in Madrid, Spain, the EP is the first in a series of releases that recount the memories only an international music explorer can tell.

Maya Amack (CO)

DJ Mixologist

Hailing from New York City, Maya comes from a very diverse musical family. She has been playing music and singing from an early age, and began djing in 2000. In the early days, she played a lot of progressive and deep house and was heavily influenced by the Tyrant sound of Craig Richards and Lee Burridge. These days, she plays an eclectic blend of deep, trippy house and techno that gets into your brain and under your skin, whether you are having an afternoon cocktail or you are losing your mind on a late-night dancefloor with 1000 of your friends.

Her success playing out procured her co-hosting responsibilities on “Bonus Beats” on Proton Radio, and also regular guest mixes on “B-sides”, a music program involving the mood of a set along with the knowledge of sound. She eventually started her own show on Proton Radio, called Mindfunk, which was a vehicle to showcase an eclectic variety of genres.

After several years of playing all over Florida, she began to extend her reaches to other cities. She moved to New York in 2003 and continued playing there at parties such as the infamous weekly Robots parties and Blue Sky Thursdays. In 2007, she relocated to Denver, where she has been happily contributing ever since. She can can be heard at some regular spots around town such as NORAD, Beta and the Funky Buddha, but her favorite places to play are in a dark warehouse, or up in the mountains during the early morning hours. She also throws the occasional underground techno party with her new crews, 5270.

Scott Everett (CO)

Ambient, Downtemp, Techno, DJ

Scott Everett began DJing in 1993, inspired by what he had experienced in the San Francisco rave scene, soundtrack provided by the Wicked Crew, the Hardkiss Brothers, Josh, Tony, Spun, and many others. Spring of '93, Scott co-founded Mother Earth Sound System with djs Whitsitt, Brad (now with Moontribe), and Stonie (now with Cloud Factory). What began with free daytime park parties, which soon progressed to basements and warehouses. Alongside Wicked, Pacific, Friends and Family, Harmony, Cloud Factory, Your Sister's House, Gateway, and many other like-minded collectives, MESS participated in a very exciting phase in San Francisco dance music history.

In 1996 Mother Earth Sound System arrived in Boulder, Colorado, and has since become notorious for their free outdoor Full Moon Gatherings, high in the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. Over the last decade, these parties have become a summer ritual attended by hundreds of music and nature enthusiasts. These gatherings have been key in shaping Scott's sound...a wild sonic forest for musically adventurous DJs to wander in.

"What we call music in our everyday language is only a miniature from that music of harmony of the whole universe which is working behind everything, and which is the source and origin of nature. It is because of this that the wise of all ages have considered music to be a sacred art. For in music the seer can see the picture of the whole universe."

Rumelia (NM)

Contemporary Balkan Folk Music

Rumelia-1024x681

Rumelia is—
Nicolle Jensen (vocals, doumbek, bass doumbek, frame drum, & riq)
Sitara Schauer (violin, backup vocals, guitar, & mandolin)
Deborah Ungar (accordion & clarinet)
Alysha Shaw (vocals, cajon, doumbek, bass doumbek, frame drum, & riq)

Rumelia is a group of women who are putting a new spin on music from Eastern Europe, a region generally known as the Balkans. The music is unique to the western ear in that it uses odd time signatures (think 7/8, 9/8, and 11/8 for starters), as well as eastern scales (maqam) and tonalities. Rumelia’s repertoire is derived from the traditional and popular tunes of Albania, Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, and Bulgaria with a little Sephardic and a lot of Roma (Gypsy) music thrown in for good measure.

Buddha Bomb (CO)

Chill, Psytrance, World-Beat

Buddha Bomb has devoted the greatest part of his life to elevating consciousness and using music as a transformational conduit to bring healing and joy to thousands. His sets are inspired, seamless and often mystical. A Sonic Shaman he provides the fuel for the dance journey, which can bring you to your deepest depth and your highest height. Whether spinning Ambient, Psytrance, IDM, Old School or his own compositions Buddha Bomb gives it his all. Buddha is formless wherein all possibilities have space to occur. Bomb is Form – action,  motion, heat, and beats. Buddha Bomb takes you there.

Buddha Bomb was born in our Solar System on the planet Neptune. Meanwhile, at the same time on Earth, it was the 22nd day of February. Friday afternoon. Quarter past 5. Just in time for Happy Hour.

Buddha Bomb was born a Pisces in the Year of the Water Dragon. A direct descendant of the great god Neptune, Buddha Bomb left that planet for Worldly pursuits. Buddha Bomb quickly became disillusioned with our World.  Earth was good, although a little flat. Something was missing and Buddha Bomb was determined to find it.

Early in life, at the tender age of 8 Earth years, Buddha Bomb questioned authority, asking if God existed or not.  After being told that God doesn’t want him to think such things, Buddha Bomb reasoned thusly: If there is no God, then there is no Supreme Being to prevent Buddha Bomb’s thinking process. Or, if there is a Supreme Being, Creator of the entire Universe, then He must be a Big enough God to allow Buddha Bomb such thoughts. In both cases, Buddha Bomb opened up.

Two years later, Buddha Bomb made the Universe disappear. Having seen his reflection in the Vast Expanse of Nothingness, the Universe arose again. His journey continued inward, and deeper. Living the life of an American Hippie, Buddha Bomb experienced just about everything Imaginable, and many things Unimaginable.
Buddha Bomb traded long hair and a beard for Buddhist teachings and a meditation cushion. After meditating in Holy places for many years, his heart and mind were open. Buddha Bomb heard Techno Music with the power to transform consciousness. Buddha Bomb’s calling became louder.
