Motion Potion
Motion Potion
MoPo is a master craftsman and his building material is the world’s most precious commodity: TIME. Consider yourself fortunate If you get a chance catch a Motion Potion DJ set these days. An enormous amount of thought, planning, and scheming has to occur to make them happen. MoPo approaches his shows like a college professor, or a football coach, putting hours of preparation and thought into exactly who will be listening, and how exactly to reach into their souls. Every set is different, and each can unfold in hundreds of different ways, and this intense focus on preparation makes him so versatile, so intense, and so much damn fun. These are “DJ sets” in the classic sense, unfolding like poems with every song a word and every mix or drop a bit of punctuation. Once known as the “DJ for people who hate DJ’s” it would be more accurate to say that this is the DJ for those who love live music.
DJ Platurn
DJ Platurn
Don’t you just love dancing? That’s a rhetorical question, of course you love dancing. That’s why you need DJ Platurn. A 20 year veteran of the DJ game, Platurn has traveled the world many times over bringing phenomenal music to the people. And with a client list that includes names such as Red Bull, Scion (Toyota), Pandora, Adidas, Pixar, Monster Cable, MTV, Rane, the Golden State Warriors, Mixcrate, & the Hard Rock Cafe, he is clearly doing something right.

This man’s resume speaks for itself, but don’t just take these words’s word for it, go check the schedule and get out to a show. Make sure you bring dancing shoes.

Haute Mess
Haute Mess
A Bay Area native, Haute Mess began DJ’ing in 2011 in San Francisco thru co-hosting a wacked-out monthly called Romper Room— where non sequitur and rhythm pudding flourished. Shamelessly double-billing herself as Wonder Wendy and Haute Mess lead to wild experimentation with every genre of beats.

Joining Brass Tax in 2012, and Angels of bAss in 2016, you can now hear her dynamic flavors warming up a crowd with sleazy indie dance, ramping up the vibe with funky tech house, or making boo-tays a’flutter with sexy breaks. There are only two criteria for a Haute Mess track — does it make her smile and does it make her dance. No genre is off limits.

For regular appearances, catch Haute Mess pump up the masses with her Bootie SF monthly residency at DNA lounge in San Francisco.

If you want to make the world a happier place, play it a song.

That's Willaa's philosophy, and it's the bumping rhythm at the heart of his sound. From his DJ sets to his productions, Willaa's music pulses with an excitable, positive energy. It's his mission to infect the world with groove. Each set is another opportunity to dig into your soul, each dance floor a bed for seeds to grow into pure, danceable joy.

Raised on wild Florida nights, he's found his spiritual home in San Francisco. Inspired by the neon hum of the historic city's cybernetic streets, he blends electronic textures with organic elements to create a swirl of psychedelia no breathing body can ignore. Is it technosoul? Is it freakhouse? Where Willaa's going, you don't need words.

Comfortable spinning house, disco, techno, and everything in between, his current obsession is all about fresh blends of bass and funk. He fits his style into every nook and cranny of the underground dance world, from dim-lit speakeasies to cramped house parties, abandoned military bunkers, crowded caves, and verdant festival fields. Willaa works the scene into sweaty, smiling mania, casting musical spells that pluck wall flowers from their inhibitions.

The world is a crazy place, but hope and happiness wait in the space between the beats. Willaa wants to play, and he wants to create, but more than anything, he wants you to move, and he'll stop at nothing until you do.

Chip “Mancub” Corwin has been voted as a top ten dj of San Francisco. He has been blowing up the block party jams for over ten years. Mancub has a very diffinitive style of turntable tricks that have earned him slots beside some of the dance industry’s biggest headliners. His turntable antics are too numerous to mention but include scratching while wearing boxing gloves, he certainly knows how to work the crowd into a frenzy!!You can hear his mixes on the internet radio station pulseradio.net, netamp.com or djmancub.com. The netamp show is aired on the last Wednesday of the month or archived. Mancub also plays for the infamous playa posse The Space Cowboys, ripping up a rare storm on the mighty Unimog at numerous unforgettable party’s. Mancub has recently joined Sleevin records and is supporting us in a big way
