( ( ( HOUSEPITALITY ) ) ) celebrates SF's favorite holiday in epic fashion, with a 5 hour, all-night set from one of the most influential artists to come out of Detroit:

::CLAUDE YOUNG (Djax, 7th City | Detroit/Tokyo)::

Groove Lounge:

::MIKE BEE (Vinyl Dreams, Housepitality | SF)::
::JOEL CONWAY (Housepitality, Bubble | SF)::

In a town with so many Halloween events, we know it takes a lot to stand out... so we booked Claude Young for an all-night, 5+ hour set. You probably won't get a chance to see this again, not here, not in a tiny, intimate club, not in SF....

...only at Housepitality. You know why? Because WE GOT YOU!

Young, who is inarguably one of the biggest names in techno, was raised in (where else) Detroit, and came up and was influenced by the sounds of the motor city (it couldn't have hurt that his father Claude Young Sr. was the founding member and radio personality of Detroit's famed WJLB radio station).

Claude has already risen to the top of electronic music stardom. His DJ, curation, and production skills are widely-acknowledged to be some of the best, and he reached the level that most DJ's aspire to: being able to make a living.

Later in his career, after becoming disillusioned with the industry and touring DJ lifestyle, he stopped touring and began working in collaboration with artist Takasi Nakajima under the name Different World, and has had his own musical future in his hands ever since, taking his own path and no longer fitting into any mold.

Given that our party is all about the underground, all about the music, and not about the money, we find an inspiring story in Claude Young.

As such, we'll be letting him tell you a story from 9pm-???, for 5+ hours.

In the back, our trusty pair of selectors, our genius residents Mike & Joel. They're the DJs you want with you (with their records) when you end up stuck on a desert island... or on a beach... or poolside... or in the Groove Lounge at Housepitality, dancing...

Halloween costumes (or street clothes) are welcome. We don't judge.

We got you. xo

Electronic composer, web designer, videographer, sci-fi junkie, apple computer expert & world class DJ, these are but a few of the hats worn by the anomaly that is Claude Young Jr.

This Detroit native who now resides in Tokyo (Japan) was born the son of legendary WJLB (Detroit) radio personality, station founding member and production wizard Claude Young Sr.

After early interest in television production and some experience working as an intern (and later mix show DJ) for several radio programs in the early 90's, CYJ intensified his interest in what he refers to as the art of the DJ. Coached by close friend and mentor Anthony "Shake" Shakir he became a natural almost literally overnight.

His editing & production skills in studio (taught to him by his father & years of experimentation alone) saw him work on a string of records for both independent and major record labels. Musto & Bones, Technasia, Gary Numan, Carl Craig, Joey Beltram, Inner City and 4Hero are but a few of the artist either remixed or edited by Young.

He was also cofounder of two of Detroit electronic music's most respected record imprints:

Frictional Records (with Anthony "Shake" Shakir) and

7Th City Records (with Dan "DBX" Bell).

Relocating to London in 1995, Young embarked on a string of DJ tours world wide from Europe to Asia & beyond lasting almost a decade.

In December 2004, Young semi-retired from his DJ activity to start cynet:media with his current mentor & close friend / advisor HG Wells (in Glasgow) and his wife < cynet:media Japan>.

This team includes cy's DJ partner, True People resident DJ & Glasgow House guru Ian Elgey.

The company will focus on presenting electronic music in the most modern forms possible and without musical constraints.

media for critical thinkers and an electronic lifestyle...
