This one's a big one, ladies and gentlemen. It's with huge pride and excitement that we announce our annual "everyone else is at the burn, so let's rock some house music" edition of our party.

There's more than just a group of our residents performing this week, as we act as the launch pad for a brand new DJ duo, and more importantly, a brand-new record label founded by some of our most amazing residents:

SECRET STUDIO is the new moniker for a production/live/dj duo comprised of Housepitality residents BAI-EE and TYREL WILLIAMS. Whether they are playing live gear, working in the studio, or playing a smokin' DJ set, these two SF transplants from Chicago are going to bring a sound based upon the following formula:


We're so proud to get to debut this new duo (who will only be playing a DJ set this week), but also making available for the first time their 12" release that includes Secret Studio's original work "Acid Bath" and "Home Bass" featuring D'Marc Cantu.

Also on the lineup, a host of our amazing residents and crowd favorites: our co-founder Miguel Solari, and veteran resident Victor Vega.

In the back, our amazing back room hero residents MIKE BEE and JOEL CONWAY will share the night.

It's an all-resident throwdown with something extra. Read more about Secret Studio, SS Records, and more in the body of the event.

Originating out of room 147 at the Secret Studios Annex in San Francisco, SS Records is the launching pad for a collaborative effort of like minded artists with one thing in common: jamming on live gear with Bai-ee and Tyrel Williams.

Bai-ee and Tyrel Williams have been inspiring each other musically as djs for over a decade. Both with Chicago roots they came up on the classic artists and diverse sounds of the area, before transplanting themselves on the west coast. In San Francisco they became residents at Housepitality before moving into the Secret Studios Annex, where they combined gear and began recording music. Soon their studio became a go-to environment for hosting Housepitality acts before and after shows. This resulted in countless sessions featuring premier artists and a library of quality material produced by Secret Studio (aka Bai-ee and Tyrel Williams).

SS Records debuts with two hard hitting acid tracks representing the overall aesthetic and future direction of the label:

Under the Secret Studio moniker, Bai-ee and Tyrel are releasing these works starting with SCS001, which features D'Marc Cantu and the track "Home Bass".

"Home Bass" took place before an Acid Test SF event in which D'Marc Cantu headlined and ultimately smashed. A "calm before the storm", this session was recorded in preparation for that show. D'Marc plays keys off the Juno 60 while Tyrel laced the Xox Box and Bai-ee worked the 909.

"Acid Bath" is the solo work of Bai-ee and Tyrel Williams. Together, they've stacked many sessions, but this was among the first. A simple but effective burner, based around an acid baseline and drums from the 909. A snaked Depeche Mode vocal ads the right amount of atmosphere for the drop, while keeping things dark.


Miguel Solari

Miguel Solari has been playing vinyl and throwing parties for many years. He's the co-founder and resident of SF's Housepitality weekly, an Acid Test SF resident, and one of the coolest cats you're ever likely to know. He's got great taste in music, an excellent collection of vinyl, and was even featured in a national publication, where he was interviewed wearing a cat suit.


Victor Vega

Some of Victor痴 early dance influences were genres such as Latin and Acid House, Hip-Hop, R 地 B, World Beat music and such unlikely sounds as Classical and Classic Rock. During the last two and one-half years, Vega has honed his craft of sculpting the sounds of Electro, Tech House, keeping it dirty and juicy so that it makes you want to freaky deaky.
In moving to San Francisco and working with the Fringe Art Collective and Janky barge. Victor has enjoyed the honor of playing alongside artists such as The Juan McLain, Freestylers, Bassnectar, BLVD, Glitch Mob, Stanton Warriors, and DJ Icey in venues such as Poleng Lounge, Anu, Mighty, Rain Dance (Santa Cruz), Get Freaky @ 10:15, Burning Man, and Decompression.
