An evening of electronic deepness, featuring one of Detroit's finest:
Mike Huckaby (Deep transportation, SYNTH-Detroit)
Often referred to as "the DJ's DJ," Mike Huckaby has been a fixture behind the turntables since 1983. As a DJ and producer hailing from Detroit, his understanding of the roots of house, techno and jazz has made him an in-demand DJ in the States, Europe,and Asia. Come down and experience an intimate journey into electronic deepness from a true dance music lover.
Stap[e is a San Francisco based collective of DJs, producers and collaborative artists, currently represented by dj's Fil "Noir" Latorre and David "Javaight" Javate.
Stap[e was founded in 1999 by Fil Latorre, Michael Minnich, Tony Roam and Jeff Brillhart, and the musical focus has always been on deep, quality dance music.
House and Techno genres become blurred when the focus is on the music. Be it House, Techno, Electro or Acid, playing good music is Staple's top priority.
Stap[e was innovative during its day because it featured the best underground talent in dance music on a weekly basis, featuring guests such as Layo & Bushwacka!, Stacey Pullen, Dan Bell, Jori Hulkonnen, Common Factor, Boo Williams, Mark Ambrose and Alexi
Delano. Staple provided a fresh vibe culminating in being awarded Best House Night by the SF Bay Guardian, among other awards.
In 2001, Staple took things to another level with their monthly party, 'Refuge', at the Endup, San Francisco's locale for House music. During this time, Dirty Crew/Optimal dj Javaight was added to the collective as a resident. Refuge carried on the tradition of deepness by featuring guests such as John Tejada, JT Donaldson, Theo Parrish, Alton Miller, Glenn Underground, the Rurals, and Jeno.
After a brief hiatus, Staple has returned to express their definitions of deepness. With advances in technology, creativity abounds to a greater audience.
Stap[e hopes to make an impact to expand on this creativity. We hope you enjoy the journey.
