They also remix popular artists for Universal Music Group as well as provide soundtrack music for Disney, ABC, and MTV. They are speaker freaks to the core with that four on the floor.
"We are the shamans of the modern machine world, healing you with magic of science and sound." Spekrfreks
We still are the ancients. We make the music of the spheres.
International DJ, singer/songwriter and producer, Michelle Ericsson, otherwise known in Europe as the "Party Starter", grabs everyones attention when she is behind the decks. Michelle has firmly established herself in the music world and has proven that she is far from what others define as a stereotypical female DJ.
Known for her up-beat Electro House DJ sets, incorporating splashes of Dubstep and Hip Hop, Michelle has spent a lot of her time jet-setting to all corners of the globe, touring England, Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, Ibiza and making her much anticipated debut in Egypt, joined by the Artful Dodger. Michelle's vast knowledge of all music genres is part of what makes her sets exceptional. From Movida & Ministry of Sound in London, K3 Club in Germany and Le Seven in France to Pacha in Ibiza, Metropolis in Ireland and Vanguard in Los Angeles just to name a few Michelle has been packing dance floors across the world. Michelle set off a memorable performance when she was invited to DJ at the Champions League Finals in Wembley Stadium, London.
Michelle's EP, "Voyager", in collaboration with the Spekrfreks and released on Big Fish Recordings, saw massive success with the track "Crazy Music" charting on Beatports Top 10 Must Hear Electro Tracks and making it into Beatports Top 50 Electro House Chart. "Voyager", the title track off the EP, charted on Beatports Dubstep Top 40. Michelle's collaboration with Belgian music producer Atorn saw their release "Da Da Dee" chart on Beatport's dance music chart under Ispirato Music at number 7 and receive tremendous support from DJ's across Europe. With almost every release, Michelle continues to chart on Beatport's Top 100 lists.
Ratchet was destined to make music. He has a prolific background in multiple musical instruments like drums, keyboard, alto sax, trombone and his family roots are firmly planted in funk music. His technical drive and appreciation for music were honed early on while he built subwoofer boxes for friends' cars. Ratchet later ran a custom stereo shop and got into it at SPL drag races, where burping your sound system was celebrated.
In 2002, his technical and artistic talents converged again in the form of DJing the alternative side of bass music, like D&B and new schools breaks. The experience left Ratchet hungry for more and he started producing IDM in 2005. Since then he has been writing techy, bass-driven mid-tempo that ranges from sexy to silly, and sad to scary.
Ratchet's current sound can be described as clean, dynamic and complex. At times his work seems mechanically precise; at others it feels driven by quiet white space and a wide range of emotion. It is in this way that each set takes the audience on a unique journey stemming from his technical drive, but it is always peppered with his polytonal melodies and pockets of warmth and love.
He is sure to continue his fantastic musical voyage for years to come.
DJ Denise is no stranger to electronic music. She first cut her teeth in the San Francisco underground scene in the late-1990s. A natural talent behind the decks, she was instantly recognized for both her technical abilities and unique energy. Her nonchalant fader flicks and mixer tricks combined with seemingly effortless beatmatching skills were intriguing to many trainspotting fans. Word of her success spread quickly and soon she was being booked for gigs spanning the San Francisco Bay Area and across North America and Hawaii. In the early 2000s she worked as a vinyl buyer for Skills DJ Workshop, which has evolved into one of the most successful EDM production companies on the West Coast.
In 2004, eager to develop as an artist, Denise began engineering her own music. She launched a vinyl record label in 2006 named Mizumo Music, and within the first year, Mizumo had established itself as a quality brand for house music. Always one step ahead, Denise transitioned the label from vinyl to digital format in order to keep up with the ever-changing technology in the industry. This Bay Area homegrown label currently boasts over 160 releases from local and international artists including Donald Glaude, Angel Alanis, Calvertron, Stupid Fresh, Mike Balance, SpekrFreks, The Sloppy 5th's, Robert Ortiz and many more. Mizumo Music has naturally also become a home for many of Denise's original productions, remixes and collaborations. It is evident that her talents in the studio successfully equate to her ability for moving dance floors.
In addition to managing Mizumo Music, Denise has steadily refined her production and engineering skills and has releases on over 50 international labels including but not limited to: Cubic (UK), A-Squared Muzik (US), CRUX (US), Clubstream (Sweden), Champion Beats (Canada), Electrotypo (Spain), Industry of House (Brazil), Big Poppa (South Africa) and Sequential Sounds (Australia). DJ Denise's music has been selected by well-respected and top EDM artists including DJ Shortee, Simply Jeff, and SOS (from the British super-club Ministry of Sound), who have all licensed songs for mix compilations. In an original collaboration with the legendary DRC, "Sassy Frass" was selected for release on Epiphyte Record's "LovEvolution," the official 2009 CD for San Francisco's street festival modeled after Germany's famous Love Parade.
At present, you will find Denise delicately balancing her time between DJ bookings, the production studio, and managing the Mizumo Music label. She continues to perform in venues both intimate and massive in the San Francisco EDM community, as well as at major camp-outs and festivals such as Burning Man (Nevada desert).

Baron von Spirit-
Baron von Spirit is a DJ and Event Producer in support of conscious dance, drawing on his decades of movement practice for inspiration.
He's known for his eclectic and wide-ranging musical taste, but even more so for searching out songs that are fresh and unique. To each set he brings a rough palette of musical ideasthe final journey is created as a response to what he is feeling in communion with the field of dancersand always finds a way to integrate a few novel remixes of beloved classics.
Spirit lives in the SF Bay Area and is a resident DJ for Ecstatic Dance Oakland, Dance Journey, Ecstatic Dance Palo Alto, and Cirquedelic. He also plays regularly at Harbin's Unconditional Dance, the Sultry Café, Ecstatic Dance Grass Valley, Athletic Playground, and local contact improv jams. He produces Dance Immersion and co-produces the Sultry Café.
NeonBunny started in the club and party scene in the late 90's after moving to the Bay Area of California. From underground parties, to regular club events, to art events, to warehouse parties, to mega concerts and massives, the Bay Area has it all. He quickly became involved with the local scene, first through event production and providing art and decor for events, and just being a part of different collectives producing events in the Bay Area.
NeonBunny plays a variety of styles of house music, mixing real time on CDJs. He tends to bounce around among similar genres in a dj set, without drifting to far away from his general love of all house music that has a good bounce and vibe to it, and easy and fun to dance to, such as Funky House, Tech House, Jackin House, Deep House, Progressive House, Electro House and so on. He's always specializing in the newest music coming out, often playing releases before they are released.
Burning Man and the local Burning Man community has always been a big inspiration, showing that nightlife culture could be interactive, creative, artistic. As one of the core producers of the now-defunct event Bunny Jam, a dance party staged in quirky, off-brand locations (like abandoned fire stations and a porn warehouse), he began developing the persona of NeonBunny. As a DJ, NeonBunny will sometimes perform in costume, adding a creative and visual element to his dj sets.
Founder and Resident DJ at his monthly event called Frolic, Neonbunny has performed at some of the top clubs and large street fairs in the Bay Area (Public Works, The Endup, Temple, F8, The Sound Factory, SF Love Fest, & SF Pride to name a few). Neonbunny's stage persona adds creative and visual elements to his DJ sets along side his ability to read crowds building a specialized set that's sure to get the dance floor moving.
