The time has come once again. Please join us for another special and intimate musical session with two very unique and interesting creatures. Clint Stewart has been shaking the bushes in SF for some time now, and will show us once again why he has earned everything he has gotten. Venomous claws, acute camouflage, and an unmistakeable ear for quality music, keep your distance and indulge in these dangerously addictive sounds. Warming up the night for Clint will be a recent SF transplant from the sunny land of the east know as "Florida." While she's new to this frigid landscape, She's been perfecting her musical abilities for some time now, and is not in the least bit shy to show what she's got. Vision like a hawk, strength of hippo, the sounds of Oonaslim are not to be missed.

In just under five years Clint Stewart has carved out a reputation as a rising musical talent gaining accolades with a growing catalogue of charismatic productions and diverse DJ sets. Since a breakout set at San Franciscos Lovefest in 2007 acclaim has been mounting worldwide for Clint as a DJ, producer and as part of an elite group of core artists holding a residency at one of the most desired destinations in the States, 222 Hyde.
Clints captivating DJ sets can go from deep and moody to heavy and twisted. While consistently maintaining a foundation in dynamics and range, the music always celebrates the diversity of people, music and environment encountered. His reputation has placed him at the world-renowned Dance Under the Blue Moon radio show with Anja Schneider as well as acclaimed Berlin clubs including Tresor, Arena Club, Bar 25, and Watergate - where he closed the night by rocking into the afternoon with an 8 hour set at the opening party for the 2010 Love Parade.
Lately Clint has been involved in another project with SF local Mark Smith, to create the sound they call SAFEWORD. With releases on Paso Music, Poker Flat, Bad Animal, and Mobliee, theses guys are spreading their unique style in captivating live and DJ sets. Pumping out new solid music with no signs of slowing down, you can count on Safeword being around for a long long time.
Only in her mid 20's, it would be all too easy to assume Oona is new to the scene. But this is not her first excursion, rather something that she has been doing all of her life, and all of her pasts. With a pagan approach, she will test the limits with long mixes, bringing certain frequencies to the floor that spark different emotions in the brain. Mixing isochronic tones into her sets has really set Oona apart from any other DJ. Her original production spans broad dance floor territory, from eerie Techno to savory Deep House. A live side project is in the works that incorporates Chillwave and Witch House with musical partner Darren Mcfarland (of Buckethead, STS9). With such hard work she’s earned her a spot on Hallucination Recordings and Hallucination Limited with Three, Monk, Grumptronix, Bob Skies and Rabbit in The Moon. A graduate at The International Academy of Design and Technology for Recording Arts and Digital Production, Oona's computer visual art will take you on a journey in itself, but combined with her music, the possibilities are endless.
:::Bells & Whistles:::
Bells & Whistles is the musical collaboration between Zack Yakovlev and Yanick Weitlisbach. Djing separately around San Diego where they both grew up, it was not until they met up in San Francisco that they started working together. Shortly after joining forces and taking on the moniker “Bells & Whistles”, the two started their first monthly party on the 21st floor of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. With shimmering chandeliers, a breath taking view of the entire city, and a service staff dressed in tuxedos and bow-ties, DRESSCODE offered a new home to a sound often kept underground. Bringing in artists like Bruno Pronsato, Claude Vonstroke, Catz N’ Dogz, Alland Byallo, Justin Martin, Franklin De Costa, Tim Green, Maetrik, Jan Krueger, J. Phlip, Soul Clap, and Mikael Stravostrand to name a few; DRESSCODE quickly became an established and respected party in San Francisco. While Djing will always be at the heart of Bells and Whistles, it is music creation, not performance, that has been taking much of their recent time. Being able to create the sound they share is the main focus for the young duo.
