After growing up in New York and spending the last decade living in San Francisco, DK Watts (who is 1/2 of the production duo called the Short Bus Kids) recently made the leap across the Atlantic Ocean to live in Amsterdam.
A veteran of the underground house music scene, DK Watts has made a lasting impression with a number of quality releases on his Bounce House Recordings label as well as many other respected Imprints. Respected I DJ Magazine journalist Russell Deeks describes the Short Bus Kids as “Two of the best producers in deep house right now, no question, and getting more eclectic as they get more confident, it would appear…” in his “This Is Why We Dance” blog when he named his 2009 Artists of the Year.
Release after release on DK Watts’ Bounce House Recordings label has garnered worldwide recognition from his fellow peers and industry publications such as I DJMagazine, De:Bug and DMC Update.
DK Watts also hosts a weekly radio show on Digitally Imported every Friday from 14:00-15:00 CET. The show called “House Music as it Should Be”, attracts an audience of over 2,500 listeners and is replayed 6 hours later for fans in the Unites States and Canada.
DK Watts is also a resident DJ of Norway’s highly-acclaimed Cue Radio. Click here to visit his profile site.

Born and raised in Berkeley, California, Lance Leber has had the luxury of living the California dream his entire life. He has been making music since 1992 and is 1/2 of the San Francisco and now Amsterdam-based Production duo called the Short Bus Kids.
He is an accomplished DJ that started off in the hip hop scene before making the change to House. He now runs his studio out of Livermore, California and is involved in many solo production ventures as well as Short Bus Kids’ projects. Lance is the sound engineer behind Bounce House Recordings and can be heard dropping jams at parties throughout the State of Cali.
