We brough Margaret Dygas to town about a year ago, and had so much fun it should have been illegal. This lady simply rocked our faces with a 3 hour set that left our arms sore (from fistpumping) and our legs sore (from dancing our asses off). She's got talent to spare, and is also an extremely nice and humble artist... we like that.

If you haven't heard of her, Margaret Dygas is one of the biggest names in house and techno music today. This Polish-born, Berlin-trained artist is affiliated with one of the biggest house/techno labels of all time: Perlon Recordings, and has played at every revered festival and club in the world (worth knowing about, anyway). We are bringing her back for a second performance because we know exactly how amazing she is... she has proven it. (And to be honest we simply wanted to watch her play again.) Her style, vibe, and stage presence are all addictive.

In support, we feature one of the most talented producers to come out of our neck of the woods: Blue Soul, aka Scott Boutin. He's been DJing and producing for as long as some of us have been alive, and is finally achieving the respect and accolades he deserves. In addition to the house and techno music he makes and enjoys, he produces music that runs the gamut of electronic genres, making beats for your brain, in addition to your dancing feet. In addition to all of the above, Scott's been a tireless supporter of our party and what we do, and you'll more often than not find him rocking out on our dance floor, all night long. We support this man! Come hear him make his Housepitality debut!

Opening up the main floor, we have a pair of talented DJs who happen to be paired up in real life as well... these cats are simply amazing, and have been plying their trade as DJs all up and down the state of California for quite some time. Ethan "Dao" Clairville & Estrella "Pwny" Espinoza offer a distinctly personal take on funky, bootyshaking house music, and have never disappointed in any of their DJ sets. Whether playing a sunrise set, a peak hour set, or while throwing their monthly installment of Bubble (one of our favorite weekly house music events in SF, other than our own), they bring the heat and the butt-wiggle... making their Housepitality debut as well, please welcome Dao & Pwny.

Finally, operating our Groove Lounge space capsule, and making his overdue Housepitality debut, our great friend and patron of the arts: Evan "Zoz" McDonnell. Evan's been supporting us in what we do for a long while, and you may or may not know that he's a talented vinyl-pusher himself. After much ado, we're pleased to have him take over our back room from 11-2, and show you what he's made of. We love Evan... let's rock!

Margaret Dygas

Life as Margaret has experienced it has had more than it’s fair share of unusual twists and turns, she quips about life in a very positive light ‘Never a dull moment!’ With a childhood that began in Poland, at aged 11 she escaped to Germany with her family eventually moving to the States, initially to San Jose, California. In the late eighties the music she was surrounded by and adhered to was old school hip hop; there were house parties every weekend and lots of chillin’ in the backyard. Her discovery of house music started in New York in the early nineties when she moved to study fashion at the renowned Fashion Institute of Technology. Before long her college friends had introduced her to the whirlwind underground club scene; the flamboyant gay clubs where vogueing was all the rage, dressed up club kids, intimate basement techno nights, jungle gatherings and scores of insane house parties.

Captivated by the British dance scene, she moved to London in the summer of 99. Her first job was on the door of Home, her day job was as a make up artist and she began to play out at parties and warming up in clubs. Then three years ago she decided make this her full-time career. Her wide musical background has made her keen to experiment with new sounds and styles through out the years, now more on the electronic side of things where the choice is endless Margaret has found herself where she is most comfortable, from dub to techno and anything in between.

Margaret has been a regular feature on London’s electronic scene playing at clubs such as Fabric, The End, The Key and Herbal. She is a resident at label night Underline and has been supporting growing underground parties such as Multi Vitamins , Run, events, Stink at the T Bar as well as Technique in Leeds. Her music has been well-received in Berlin where she is fast becoming a friendly face at clubs like The Panorama Bar, The Arena, Club Der Visionare, Watergate, Kino International and House13. Last summer she was part of Cross Town Rebels mini tour around Europe playing at Electrosplash in Valencia, Watergate/Berlin and Space in Ibiza.

Over the years her DJ travels have taken her to countries such as Holland, France, Finland, Singapore, China and eastern Europe for growing club scene of Romania, Slovenia, Macedonia and Serbia’s vibrant Exit festival.

Now making her first moves into production, her DJing style continues to develop and blossom. The electronic-tech vibe of her present sets incorporate the deep and minimal sounds she loves but retains the driving funk of her musical past.
