Brian Bejarano Bio
Nicknamed "Briski" by his father (pronounced Bri-skee), Brian Bejarano worked beyond a casual encounter with sound in Dallas, England, and San Francisco, taking a deep dive into the dark pool of music to feed the emotional, soulful and spastic sides of his adult nature. His young journeys drew him to throw and attend undergrounds and house parties; to buy and listen to psychedelic rock jams and Wicked tracks (beginning with Jeno, Garth, Thomas, Markie and Doc Martin; all bearing an indelible imprint on him); to scoop old-school tapes of '90s mixes that hoisted the shimmy at his smaller shindigs as he rounded out his sound.
But Bejaranoís desires propelled him headlong into every aspect of the business: DJing, producing and promoting. As a DJ, he established a residency at Dallasís Velvet Hookah, was a part of his own re:body project that threw shimmery and artful disco parties all over San Francisco, and finally became a resident of West Coast collective, As You Like It. In the promotion sphere, he promoted and played an assortment of disco and house parties in Dallas that included guests like Doc Martin and Egyptian Lover. He also rocked sensational SF parties including Art Department and Linkwood at the now defunct wilderness-preserve-turned-sound-hive, the Compound, to fill the void of genres being spotlighted by the venue at the time.
Fast-forward to 2011ís tail end/2012ís cusp, his focus shifted more to sound development, production and travel (in both North America and abroad). The young rebel-turned-analyst had nurtured his reckless anima into a captivating concentration of musical mandates, resulting in awesome creative tangents previously unimagined.
Currently living in San Francisco, Ca. Originally, a bay area native, grew up in Woodside, CA. Started DJing in 1997- Mixing everything from: house (funky, progressive, tech), breakbeat (funky and nu skool), techno (minimal, deep and dreamy), indie, electro, dub, downtempo, dubstep, hip hop, atmospheric drum n bass, funk, dancehall, reggae, 70ís, 80ís, rock, and remixes. Key to putting girls on the dance floor- fat basslines, vocals, organic sounds and remixes. Keeping them there- solid mixing. Philosophy on music- There is too much good music out there to only play and support specific genres. Have an open mind and keep the crowds refreshed.
