Nikita-San Francisco (listed | The Endup | Non-fat)
It wasn't too long ago that NIKITA ventured out from Denver, Colorado to pursue his dreams of working in the music industry. A lifelong love affair with music began as a young boy playing piano, singing and dancing… It wasn't until later in life when Nikita attended a warehouse party that would change his life forever (circa 1993) - Nikita became one of Denver's 'underground party-scene offspring'! In 2000, Nikita left Colorado for California…
In the past eight years Nikita's perseverance and pure love for quality dance music has placed him among the top DJs of San Francisco's world-famous club scene. In 2005 Nikita was chosen to host his own radio show on Northern California's Energy 92.7 FM – The Massive Mix. It was Nikita's raw talent that also landed him a residency at San Francisco's legendary nightclub, The EndUp.
Performing anywhere from 2 to 12 hours; Nikita's playfulness behind the decks takes you on a ride seamlessly blending sick minimal grooves, heavy basslines, melodic synths, and twisted beats, while still keeping it soulful and deep. Nikita has tagged with likes of Cassy, Lee Burridge, Derek Plaslaiko and has played along side Steve Lawler, Steve Bug, Damian Lazurus, M.A.N.D.Y., Tom Stephan Superchumbo), Craig Richards and many more... With inspirations coming from friends like Ms. Honey Dijon, Tedd Patterson and Danny Tenaglia... it's no wonder Nikita is one of Dance Music's upcoming success stories.
Through his broad musical taste and genre bending, Nikita has always managed to create a unique dance floor experience that continues to draw a diverse audience.
Nikita is has been working on music production, and has releases set for later this year...

Stephanie grew up immersed in music from an early age. Stephanie’s jazz-drummer father put her in front of a piano at age 6. Stephanie’s been involved in all types of musical pursuits from classical piano lessons, musicals, tenor saxophone, classical guitar, college-radio DJ, choreography/aerobics instruction, and DJing and music production.
Stephanie was lured to the San Francisco dance music scene from Washington, DC in 2002. Stephanie quickly developed a strong style that’s a fusion of house & techno: thumpy, minimal, and always accompanied by a provocative melody.
Stephanie formed Zenomena Productions in 2008 as a vehicle to fly in top talent and a mechanism to highlight the talented artists of the San Francisco bay area. Zenomena Productions throws a regular one-off party called Funkentanzen and a monthly called TekAndHaus . TekAndHaus began in the basement of Temple but now lives @ Paradise Lounge. Zenomena Productions is Stephanie’s personal investment in the music that has become her passion & obsession.
