• DOWNPAT - 12:30 - 2:00
[The Get Down Pod-cast, Pure FM]
It all started for DownPat (Pat McKeever) in a small town thrift store with a pair of mismatched $20 turntable's and a vintage house record from 1988 purchased for $1.00. Now a music head of over a decade, DownPat has played and partied to the vast range of genres that the bay area of California is fortunate enough to enjoy. After moving to San Francisco to obtain his formal degree he found a home in the local scene and considers himself fortunate in being able to promote local electronic music events alongside some of the longtime supporters of dance music as well as upcoming talent. Get a taste of his unique sound by tuning into his monthly podcast (The GetDown) and radio show (Amidst Rhythm on Pure.FM) where DownPat explores a variety of techno and main-room house to listeners across the globe.
• LORYN - 11:15 - 12:30
[Mizumo, SONUS, Strategik]
A transplant to the Bay Area scene from upstate NY, DJ Loryn loves the sound of bass. A folk singer turned digital, she was first influenced by electronic music from Detroit, Toronto Canada, and NYC in 1998. In her formative years she experimented with everything from Drum and Bass to Progressive Techno and House. Recently Loryn has been working on her own productions as well as pursuing her interests in design, art, and technology.
Based out of San Francisco since 2003 this artist’s collection is vast and growing still. Actively involved in the SF club and underground dance scene since she arrived, this tiny pistol has been setting off dance floors since the tender age of 18. Constantly influenced by many talented locals and drawing from her past experience in music, Loryn has developed and refined her own unique sound of Techno, House, and Progressive beats. Keep your eye on this hot talent as she explodes her way on up to the top.
