Description

Cinnaman

Cinnaman is part of the infamous Rush Hour Record Store crew. He is also one of the most talented and diverse djs to emerge from Holland. He hosted several clubnights like Viral Radio and Colors at Club 11 and Trouw. You can't really define Cinnaman's style. It's somewhere between the spectrum of House, Garage, Dubstep, UK Funky, Two Step, Detroit Techno and UK Techno.

Born in the south of Holland and started playing music at the age of 12. Cinnaman has also compiled the Beat Dimension compilations wich are focusing on a fresh and invigorating sound coming from L.A, mixing electronic music with R''n'b aesthetics and hip hop drum patterns. Since this project, Yuri has recently been collaborating with Tom Trago and Presk among others, making stepping hip hop and flecked house grooves. He got his DJ name because he was always chewing on candy cinnamon sticks hence his name Cinnaman.

Solar

When Solar began Djing in the early 90's, San Francisco's Clubs and Raves were places where musically, anything could happen. To be a DJ in this time and place meant having a fierce dedication to the craft of creating electrifying music for people to dance all night. A deep record collection and bold creativity were what people valued in the Djs they would go hear every weekend.

In 1994, Solar and a couple other Djs began bringing a sound system and a generator to the Berkeley Marina for free gatherings to dance and watch the sun set behind the San Francisco skyline. As these Sunset parties grew from dozens to hundreds, and now thousands of attendees, Solar become one San Francisco's best loved DJs. Known for his eclectic sets, blending Techno, Disco, House, Electro and electronic music with the energy of Punk and Psychedelic Rock, Solar has built a loyal following among a discerning crowd of dancers and party goers used to hearing every touring DJ you've ever heard of. Nearly twenty years of playing music for crowds large and small has evolved a style of Djing that seamlessly fuses the best of classic and modern dance music. More recently as resident and co-creator of the No Way Back parties, Solar has earned the reputation of a DJ devoted to the art of mixing and selecting music without regard to ephemeral fashion, trends or fads.
