ChrisB.

(Headtron)

Over the past few years, the original sounds of Los Angeles-based producer ChrisB. have taken the underground electronic music scene by storm. His passion for songwriting at a early age led him to playing guitar in bands throughout his formative years, but it wasn’t until being exposed to the cutting-edge sounds of electronic music that he realized his true creative calling.

Always eager to push himself, this charismatic producer spends countless hours in the studio sharpening his own production skills, where his notoriously deep and sensual soundscapes take over the dance floor. But don’t get it twisted, it’s not all chocolates and silk panties. Armed with a voracious appetite for exploring new sounds, ChrisB. can set any party off with his meticulously glitchy, hip hop beats and hard-hitting 808‘s. Always striving to strike the perfect balance in his live sets, ChrisB. takes listeners on a journey of expansive melodies and driving bass.

In addition to his work as an artist and producer, Chris plays an essential role in A&R decisions and development at Headtron, the West Coast's premier bass music crew.

Nick's live sounds are inspired by sweaty dance floors, deep tech house sunrises, sexy beats and trippy sounds.

Liquid Love Drops

an exploration of hypnotic and enchanting sounds and entrancing patterns

Liquid Love Drops: The call for water, Amrita, the pheromone feel of love raining on you from another or that which you offer to another, mind altering, the sensual swirl you feel in your lower chakras when you spiral on the dance floor. All these things inspire me to create with sound, dance and visual for others to interact in a Liquid Love Drops experience.

(Trapeze)

Delachaux is San Francisco's sonic blastronaut par excellence. As an early pioneer of the electro-swing movement, he became a cherished after-party DJ for some of San Francisco's earliest neo-burlesque events. Over the years Delachaux’s intoxicating style of pouring vintage samples and exotic orchestrations over a barrage of saucy beats has fused a wild carousel of voluptuous voodoo and body-quaking bass that reflect both the dialated discos and carbonated cabarets of Barbary Coast nightlife and have made him one of the west coast underground's most seminal DJ/producers.

As a dj Jocelyn has been shakin' booties across the bay and beyond, Jocelyn's vibrant personality, dj skills as a sound track selectress combined with a few of her own ear worm bass heavy mixes and her simple desire to turn you "ON" makes fora high energy show that captures your attention and traps you booty on the dance floor.

While communing with the vixen within, she adds some bass and creates a booty infused sauce of luscious sounds. Using entrancing sultry highs with intent to lul dancers into a sonic womb and then entice you back into your body with her love for bass. Often mixing it up, but always keeping it booty, she draws globally from her selection of sounds. Working the subs over with her deep syrupy butter, her only intent is to share her love of feeling wild, fun and yum in life. Sharing her sexy, gutteral grinding liquid-lithe mixes, she hopes to drive your consciousness deep into your hips while moving the dancefloor with her to an entrancing beat.

As a professional artist and dj, she has been recognized for her skills and chosen by other promoters to share the stage as an opening or closing act for acts such as Bassnectar, Glitch Mob, Beats Antique, Little Dragon, Thievery Corporation, Ooah, Edit, An-ten-nae, Kalya Scintilla, and Random Rab.

Founder of Booty Trap and Co-Creatress of the infamous Club Exotica, this girl shakes it up regularly in the bay, pushing the boundaries with not only music and sounds, but also events with her "Jocelyn" touch.
