At Housepitality we’ve brought the best of the best to play in our intimate club night for many years, and this week our guest is no exception: the left coast’s elite producer and DJ of melodic and moving techno music (and beyond): John Tejada.

John was born in Austria to a pair of professional musicians; an opera singer (mom) and a conductor (dad). He moved to Los Angeles with his family at the age of 4, and hasn’t turned back since. Beginning his training with piano, and soon moving to a drum kit (under the influence of classic rock and roll), he was finally put on his current path when he heard and was moved by early hip hop. He got turntables and a mixer at age 12, and aren’t we all glad that he did.

He’s now a fully fledged electronic music legend, having produced and recorded music since since he was in high school. He’s internationally respected as a DJ, a producer, a label boss (Palette Recordings), and he still knows his way around a drum kit, having released 5 studio albums in his amazing experimental rock/electronic project “I’m Not A Gun” with legendary guitarist Takeshi Nishimoto. We’re humbled and so excited to have Tejada play in our intimate setting, and to share the experience with our great friends and fans… let’s do this.

Warming up the main room, two DJs who run an amazing, genre-bending night called Deep Crates: Jason Douglas and Matt Holland. Their record collections are as deep as their musical knowledge, and they’ve promised to dig even deeper than normal to bring an appropriate warmup for Mr. Tejada. Come join early and get deep with us.

In the Groove Lounge, local house stalwarts Heather B and Mike Frugaletti will be celebrating their birthdays with a dual birthday set. Come dig some deep sounds and give birthday loving while the usual magic of our back room happens. Never forget to go in the back and Groove out.

So… John Tejada, on a Wednesday, with all your homies, in a tiny club? Sound like your thing? Ours too… because We Got You! It’s the Housepit way.

John Tejada

Normally associated with his peers in techno from Detroit, Europe and elsewhere, John Tejada has embraced electronic music as a personal frontier, expanding on his resume as a techno recording artist as producer, remixer, DJ, and label owner. Known for crafting a brand of subtle, musical techno, his recorded output ranges across tempo and genre lines, from chilled out affairs with spacious arrangements to pulsating, densely layered, deeply energetic tracks that work magnificently in the hands of DJs as well as on the home stereo.

Deep Crates

Deep Crates is a showcase of DJs that connect the dots of dance music's history with the latest jams and cuts. We are genre agnostic. Expect house, techno, disco, italo, boogie, freestyle, hip hop, electro, funk, soul, bass music and anything else that makes you want to move.
