SERGIO (Go BANG!)
Sergio began his DJing career on KALX 90.7 FM in Berkeley since 1997, and began to flex his musical chops at live club gigs a couple of years after. As he continued to DJ, and especially after reading "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life" in 2000, his 'musical vision' has crystallized into wanting to present the spectrum of dance music - disco, house, funk, jazz, boogie and more - while preserving & paying respect to the vibe of the legendary clubs of Disco's Golden Age.
Born & raised in the East Bay, and having moved to San Francisco 10 years ago, Sergio is proud of the San Francisco Bay Area's rich dance music past and especially focuses on keeping our City's traditions & history alive. His DJing style draws inspiration from legendary Chicago DJ & producer Derrick Carter in addition to the one & only Larry Levan. He strives to keep the proud tradition of the DJ "speaking to the dancer" alive - through the music, lights, and other atmospheric elements of the dancefloor & club.
In 2005, he was chosen as the New Times (SF Weekly/East Bay Express) "DJ Breakthrough" and was invited to play at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami during the Winter Music Conference. In 2006, he was awarded the title of the SF Weekly’s 2006 Music Awards "Best DJ." Most recently, he was voted BEST DJ in SF Weekly's 2010 Reader's Poll!
He continues to pursue his passion of DJing and has been blessed to connect with others who share his love for the music and the proud tradition of San Francisco's dance music history.

ANDRE LUCERO (Fiction)
A veteran of West Coast underground electronic music culture, André Lucero continues to reinvent himself. From breakdancing in the early 80's to his present studio efforts, he always kept his focus on beats and sounds of genres to come. Starting with the earliest electro hip-hop, passing through time and space to the present and future of electronic music, his selections are open minded but always have a dancefloor sensibility.
Not being satisfied with spoon feeding or accepting convenience, André has chosen the paths less traveled. Helping foster the rave scene in Santa Barbara; playing at the first mega-rave in the US (Raveamerica); releasing one of the first (if not THE first) domestically produced underground electronic dance music mixed CD's (Fusion, Volume 1); his involvement with the seminal San Francisco techhouse event/DJ crew, Urban Development; to playing with international legends for Space Children, he has been recognized for decades as a stand alone talent who brings something special to the lineup. Sharing the decks with some of the heaviest hitters on the planet, he understands how to rock a crowd as well as to tell a story. No two sets from André are alike. Each moment drives the relevance of the music selection. Each moment is unique.
André is concentrating on production of an album and continues the promotion and growth of San Francisco's Fiction events.

THE WORKER (Fiction)
The Worker's first forays into San Francisco's music and club community began shortly after joining the Mission based eclectic world record label Six Degrees Records - exploring contemporary global electronic music. He produced and DJ'ed a weekly global electronic event called "Stateless" with DJ Special Agent K which grew into a monthly at Amnesia and eventually Rickshaw Stop - showcasing Smith and Mighty's Rob Smith, DJ/rupture, Filastine, Maga Bo, Kush Arora, Jef Stott, Mexican Dubwiser, Timeblind, Maneesh The Twista and others. At the same time he also produced the monthly Brazilian electronic night "Novo Soundz" at supperclub focusing on current Brazilian electronic artists with live video mixing, samba dancers and acrobatics. In 2007 and 2008 he produced and DJ'ed the label's WMC showcase events at Opium Garden, CIFO and The Standard Miami - which featured artists: Nickodemus, Gaudi, Maga Bo, Jef Stott, David Starfire, among others.
Over the last few years he's concentrated his DJ'ing and promotional energies on some of his primary musical loves, house and techno. Exploring the less conventional terrain of these genres, with mutant strains of disco, The Worker and the crew Fiction began their monthly night three years ago - an unpredictably wild affair at Polk St.'s Vertigo. In 2009, they moved to San Francisco's techno "epicenter," 222 Hyde, and began hosting some of SF's finest guest DJs - while establishing a unique musical flavor and solid, enthusiastic following. In addition, over the past few years, they've hosted one-offs at venues such as Mighty, Temple, supperclub, Pink, Asia SF and the Polk St. Fair. This has included opening sets for DJs and producers Adam Beyer, Joel Mull, John Selway, Claude Von Stroke, Worthy, Landshark, Lee Foss and Rob Rives.
TRAVIS DALTON (Binary)
Taken from Urban Dictionary.com:
You know he's bad news, but that never stops you from longing for his husky voice and his tastefully seductive body. The lust buried deep inside you always somehow manages to come to life like a phoenix being reborn from its ashes. This is what He does to you. But there is another side. Hidden beneath his scarred heart lay memories of terror. Something happened to him. He was never the same. He has a split personality, in a way, half human, half monster. The only thing left in the world that makes him happy lingers before his very eyes and is taken away forever in a single second. He now lives a tortured existence, longing for what he knows he will never have.....
Conceptualizing and supporting the continued success of BINARY at the infamous 222 Hyde, producing and Djing keep Travis busy. Travis has remix and original work released on Alland Byallo's Nightlight Music sublabel, NLMX, as well as remix work upcoming on Cable recordings.
