WICKED - GRAYHOUND.NET (S.F.)
Garth has been representing San Francisco nightlife for almost two decades where his parties are renown for stretching musical boundaries. Wicked, Come Unity, Full Moons, Roots & Back2Back have helped reignite the flames of conscious hell raising that existed here in generations past.
Those full moon parties ushered in an era of acid house hysteria that ripped through the west coast and spread into the heartland. The Wicked crew are credited widely with having kick started the city's dance scene in the early 90's adding to its reputation as the red headed step child of disco.
From his highly coveted 10 year residency at Come Unity, where he'd have early morning revellers all join hands in ecstatic abandon to Wicked's 13 year odyssey as the City's rulin' sound system, Garth's influence as a DJ is legendary and still reverberates today.
Scoring a custom designed Turbosound rig and a 1947 Greyhound bus whose previous owners were a gospel choir, Garth set about spreading his own gospel to seekers far and wide.
The same bus provided inspiration to start his own record label in '98. With over 50 singles under the belt Grayhound has been a constant thorn in the side of easy listening house. His breakout anthem 'Twenty Minutes of Disco Glory' shook things up internationally & he now has 40 singles to his name, many on his own label. He has worked with or remixed the likes of ETI, The Glimmers, Perry Farrell (Janes Addiction), Yabby You and Tribe Called Quest and recorded mix CDs for Om, NRK, Thrive & Grayhound.
Fueled by an ungodly appetite for timeless dance music of all persuasions... acid rock, disco, dub reggae, house & electro, he keeps himself and others awake doing his damndest to mix them together. He travels extensively, lugging a crate of his favorite vinyl to Japan, Spain, England, France, Germany, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Singapore, even Indonesia & Malaysia turning parties out upon request.
On the home front he throws an intimate monthly shindig called Back2Back in San Francisco with his right hand man Jeno. Nobody gets hurt.
