If you want to talk about legends in the world of techno.. Joey Beltram surely comes to mind. No one man has had releases on more seminal electronic music labels (Trax, Tresor, Plus 8, R&S, Harthouse, FFRR) and has had more pull on the direction of techno as a whole since the early 90s than Joey Beltram. Joey Beltram has more hit records than any producer could hope to expect in their lifetime: Instant, Drome, Ball Park, My Sound, Energy Flash, Game Form, The Start It Up... As of late, Joey seems to be doing it all over again with releases on Drumcode, MB electronics, Bush, Harthouse and is currently storming up the charts as the # 3 producer in the world, bar none.
Not long after his discovery of techno, it was the harder and more percussive tastes of the Swedish sound that initially inspired Indiana based Kyle Geiger as a DJ for years before the genres overall sound took a slower and softer turn. Still loving the energy and power of the earlier phases of techno, while being greatly influenced by long time friends and minimal techno veterans such as JPLS and Skoozbot, it was at that point when Kyle Geiger began to push himself as a producer harder to create music that helped fill the gap of the divide between the techno and "minimal' arenas. While the initial projects were being drawn to a completion, Drumcode label manager Adam Beyer was on the hunt for what he describes to many as a "modern techno sound" where he discovered Kyle through a mutual friend putting the music in his hands just in time for him to put it to the test at the Winter Music Conference in 2007. Upon the invitation to come on board with Drumcode, Kyle's sound has become more refined and chiseled into what very well may be a breed of techno that pushes things forward for the next generations of techno to come, while also striving to take his widely recognized DJ sets to the next level through both technology and what many are calling the future sounds of techno.
So what can you say about one of the hardest working Djs in the history of San Francisco? The man has a Track record of Non stop Headlining gigs throughout San Francisco, underground and above ground. He's the DJ you can find making the crowd sweat into the wee hours of the morning with a vast and diverse collection of tasty vinyl consisting of some of the toughest techno and super dope house ever cut to wax. He's been known to drop stormers, funky jaxx, sweet house, and booty shaking tech house.
Haptic Synapses is a recently formed crew of some of the leading players from the Dobox label out of San Jose, the Rhythmist, Steve Cooley, and Qorser. Each member brings their own personality to the table, with tech represented Cooley, funk realized by The Rhythmist, and deep soul as touched upon by Qorser. They each have come together to jam out in the form of a live P.A. on a combination of self made software & hardware to give real meaning to words techno soul in a style that is both truly original and west coast.. this Coming set will be the crew's first public appearance after rocking rocking the blissfactory live for 3 hours without breaking a sweat. They wanted to play longer but the beer ran out. `;)
