This Friday, April 26th, Essential Nightlife is proud to bring you FACT, inside the famed Catacombs of Temple SF, featuring music by Martin Aquino, Gabriel I, and Quinn Jerome.
Alongside Temple, we’re excited to host a truly unique experience, showcasing SF’s underground music sensibilities at one of the city’s most highly regarded venues. Martin Aquino will be headlining the Catacombs, while hipster-hop specialist and Manic Mondays figurehead Mei-Lwun headlines the Shrine.
Originally hailing from Manila, Philippines and now firmly rooted in San Francisco, Martin Aquino is an exciting new name on the scene who is making waves with his underground, deep tech-house sound. It was on the US west coast that he became familiar and fascinated with the bay area’s brand of deep house. Martin’s obsession with the music and his sound naturally led to music production. Since 2011, he’s already recorded well-received singles for labels like Resopal Schallware, One Records, and District Raw. Martin’s production, while riding the border between house and techno, keeps a leg deep in the sound of the underground. He strives for music that is organic and eclectic while still rawly effective in the nightclub.
