Inspired by the electronic music emanating from Detroit's airwaves while coming of age, Jason Kendig has been pursuing the dance music pulse for over two decades. From his first residency at Detroit's Motor Lounge in the late 90s to his current role as an integral member of the esteemed Honey Soundsystem–a queer collective of musicians, artists and djs known for elevating nightlife in San Francisco and beyond–Jason never fails to make others move through his ability to reference dance music's past yet keeping an ear to the future.
"If you are interested in the future of club and dance music, look no further than Ariel Zetina. A popular rising underground DJ, Zetina has begun making a name for herself in the city’s club venues and across the country (through the power of SoundCloud) for her eclectic and progressive sets. Straightforward hip-hop or bro-oriented EDM are never on the menu during her performances (thank goodness). Instead, listeners and partygoers will be immersed in Zetina’s glitchy, strange, yet totally fun dance music. Zetina aims to use sound and text works to transform club settings and performance spaces, making them more socially inclusive and sonically forward-thinking.This year, Zetina launched an ongoing residency at the Hideout, best known for its iconic dance parties." - Britt Julious, Chicago Tribune
Carlos Souffront is a true DJ’s DJ and local favorite with impeccable taste. He’s originally from Detroit, of the same generation of selectors as Patrick Russell, Mike Servito and the Interdimensional Transmissions crew. Raised on a diet of homegrown dance music, fed through underground parties and astoundingly good radio programming, they emerged with an elastic definition of techno and a fearlessness DJ style. While Souffront's peers moved away to places like New York or burrowed deeper into the Detroit underground, he ended up in San Francisco, where he's led a double-life as a cheese monger.
