Description

TIM SWEENEY

Tim Sweeney and Beats in Space. The story of the man is synonymous
with that of the radio show. Over the course of a decade, Sweeney has
built Beats in Space into an iconic brand. In return, BIS has launched
Sweeney's career as one of New York's most sought-after DJs.

It's hard to believe that, ten years ago, Sweeney was an 18-year-old
student at New York University, helming a little-known radio show on
WNYU's AM dial. The show started small, airing on an obscure frequency
during the wee hours of the night. However, Sweeney understood the
huge potential for a dance-music radio show broadcast from the heart
of New York City. He envisioned a genre-breaking format, showcasing
the best dance music whether disco, new wave, Chicago house, minimal
techno, Krautrock, funk and soul, or post-punk found anywhere in the
world, anytime in history. He took cues from groundbreaking disc
jockeys like Detroit's Electrifying Mojo, who thought nothing of
following up Prince with a Kraftwerk or Depeche Mode record. Armed
with this vision, Sweeney began pulling in heavy-hitting guest DJs on
BIS, prompting WNYU's producers to move him to the FM dial with
increasingly prime timeslots. Sweeney quickly attracted a strong
international following for the diverse range of artists and styles on
his playlists. Guest artists who've appeared alongside him on the show
range from avant-techno stylists Carl Craig and Superpitcher, to
Australian turntablists the Avalanches, to Nordic disco producers
Lindstrom and Prins Thomas.

Says Sweeney, "Since I need to do something different for each show,
I'm forced to go out and discover new music every week. It can be
recently released or unreleased records, or older songs that people
haven't heard before. I try to find the best music from all different
genres, and then make them fit together in ways that appeal to people
who might not have liked, say, disco or techno, before now. For me
it's always fun finding tracks that people don't know about, but that
sound amazing."

ANTHONY MANSFIELD

Anthony Mansfield has been on a 20-year journey through the world of
psychedelic dance music ever since attending the now-legendary full moon massives of
San Francisco’ s Wicked Crew in the early 90’ s. Anthony spent the rest of the decade
in New York, spreading the gospel of deep house across the Empire State with a late-
night radio show, his 8-year-running weekly, and the countless underground parties
that gave birth to his own crew, HectorWorks Soundsystem. After an exhausting and
debaucherous 2-year run as GM, talent booker, and resident DJ at upstate’ s largest live
music venue, The Odyssey, Anthony was ready to return to San Francisco.
Anthony hit the West Coast running in 2002, joining his old friend DJ M3 as
resident DJ and co-promoter of the infamous Green Gorilla Lounge in a string of
successful weekly club nights, true seat-of-your-pants underground parties, and blown-
out monthly events across the Bay Area, with some of the city’ s and world’ s best names
in dance music. Anthony has left his mark on Burning Man for the last decade as well,
at the Space Lounge, Green Gorilla, and Disco Knights sound camps, with a trail of
exhausted dancers and party people in the wake of his many epic sets on the playa.
Anthony has been producing his own particular brand of dance music since his
first release on Rong Records in ’ 04 with Ben Cook as “ Barfly” . Quickly moving to
found his own label, Hector Works, in 2005 with NYC deep-house production wizard
Nick Chacona, Anthony has worked with Garth, Tal M. Klein, Sneak-E Pete, M3, and
others in the last five years, releasing tracks on Gomma, Moodmusic, Aniligital , and
Om Records. His tunes have received nods (and plays) from some of the world’ s top
DJs, including Dimitri from Paris, Harvey, Greg Wilson, Doc Martin, Idjut Boys, Ivan
Smaggle, and Playgroup. Camped out in his room at Moulton Studios, Anthony is
currently hard at work on the 16th release for Hector Works, and looking forward to
taking a break for the Treasure Island Music Festival!
