- the crew

Bob Five

bob five's roots run deep within the san francisco bay area underground house/techno world. A constant presence in the scene since the mid 90s, bob's performed both near and far, from the rough desert of Black Rock City to the post futuristic landscape of Detroit and down into the belly of Central America. His sound can range from heady dreamy deep house to the darker edges of techno. from rare grooves to the latest heat, his style of mixing takes you on a voyage blending genres into one seamless aural experience. listen closely to the story he tells and maybe you can also find the deeper meaning he hides within.

DJ Tyrel Williams

Tyrel has been a mainstay of Chicago’s underground House scene for years. He began mixing records in 1999. Soon later he landed a job at Gramaphone Records where he spent many years building his collection of dance records. He spent 2008-2011 building his Acid Test residency at Smart Bar, which is an all vinyl House / Techno party. Guests have included Derrick Carter, Traxx, Justin Long, Convextion, Dave Aju, and Tevo Howard. Tyrel has recently moved to San Francisco where he is a resident DJ for Housepitality, Bionic, and has also started his Acid Test party with Bryan Bai-ee, Miguel Solari and Luke Nasaw incorporating all live analog sets.

Billy Jaz

Billy Jaz is a native San Francisco DJ who first manned the decks in 1988 and hasn’t stepped down since. His introduction to music came as a child when his dad would play jazz records around the house. When young Billy started out on his own musical this early introduction and ensuing passion for jazz helped him choose a snappy DJ name so he could stand out from the crowd. But, like many of his contemporaries, his first musical love affair was with hip-hop. It was only when he heard “Good Life” by Inner City in 1990 that he was locked onto the house groove, where he has stayed for the duration of his career.
