LOVEFIX & BUMP SENSIBILITY join forces to bring you CROSSFADE
==============[Bang the Box, Lazy Days SF]
Not willing to claim any one genre as his “style”, Lance DeSardi's musical output always teeters somewhere between house and techno, and is always highly electronic. At 30 years old, living in San Francisco, his music embraces all of his influences to the fullest, creating a unique juxtaposition of styles, deep to jacking and back again. These days, with the party in full swing in SF, Lance has his grubby fingers in almost every aspect of music. He’s just started a label and coinciding club night called Bang the Box,and has a slew of new releases set to go. In his hometown of Dallas, Texas he got into music at an early age; and not the sounds of the honky tonk you might expect. At twelve a friend introduced him to industrial and dance music, listening to bands like Nine Inch Nails, Nitzer Ebb, LFO, and 808 State. As he dug deeper, the raw energy in music from Detroit and Chicago started to pique his interest. He couldn’t get enough. Next thing he knew, he was at the local record store every Wednesday, waiting for the twelve inches to come in. Once he grasped the DJ thing, he started to mess around with samplers and keyboards, trying to emulate the records he liked. Knowing that production was a means to help get DJ gigs, the combination became an obsession. Hearing his records played to a crowd brought him a whole different feeling than mixing other peoples music, and he couldn’t live without either of them. Not long after getting his first few songs on wax, he uprooted and moved to California. Having had enough of the dry plains of Texas, he wanted to put the “small fish in a big pond” theory to the test. It proved to work in his favor, and he quickly became a mainstay in the house music community, releasing records on labels like Classic, Naked Music, Coco Machete, Seasons, and PIAS, to name a few. With his 2003 underground hit “Tie Me Up”, under the moniker Land Shark, or his huge remix of Zap Mama’s “Rafiki”, he solidified his place in dance music lore.
==================[Historia y Violencia, ICAN, UR LA]
Santiago Salazar aka DJ S2 is a second wave artist emerging out of Los Angeles in the 1990's then moving to Detroit to join the highly respected Underground Resistance. After releasing material under the UR label, Santiago began to tour around the world headlining sold out venues in Europe & Japan such as Liquid Room(tokyo), Berghain(berlin), Rex Club(paris) and Fabric(london). In addition, Santiago also played large festivals such as DEMF(detroit) and Metamorphos(japan). Santiago has recently relocated back to L.A. launching Ican Productions with partner Esteban Adame which releases have been charted by Jeff Mills and Laurent Garnier to name a few. Santiago has solo releases on Rush Hour, Historia y Violencia and Berlin's Macro Recordings.
His latest release “Caja De Luz” on Historia y Violencia 6 is already garnering international play, many considering it timeless and an instant underground classic with a Detroit vibe via Los Angeles.

XAVIER DE ENCISO
================[aka Xavier, LoveFix, Código LA]
A longtime fixture of LA’s electronic music scene since 1991, Xavier has DJed at and promoted parties of all sizes, from lofts to sports arenas and everything in between, playing with legends of dance music. He is currently the resident and architect of LOVEFIX, an LA event promotion collective dedicated to fostering an underground community, creating space, and dance. He’s also recognized as being a DJ/promoter turned scholar of his trade, since completing his Masters degree in Chicano Studies, and writing his thesis on LA’s rave scene during the 1990s from a Chicano perspective. With a passion for academia and underground nightlife he’s been invited to speak at conferences bringing forth LA’s unique underground dance culture and contributing to Droid Behavior’s D-Node podcast series by interviewing David Alvarado for his soon to be release DJ set. Xavier is currently working on his own music production under the alias Código, Spanish word for “Code” and is collaborating with other LA artists and is set to release music later this year. With over 20 years of DJ experience Xavier's musical style ranges from acid house to techno, to deep/dub while maintaining that underground sound that has characterized his sets. Known for his programming and seamless mixing skills he’s been fortunate to take his sound to other cities around the U.S and abroad from SF to Miami, Vancouver CA, London UK, Guadalajara MX, and points in between.

VIKTOR CARRILO===[Droid, Xeriscape, Love Fix LA]
VS. DANIEL SATTA===[Xeriscape Germany]
[Special opening set celebrating Daniel Satta’s contribution to L.A.’s scene, as he’ll be leaving L.A. returning home to Germany]
Viktor is a Los Angeles-based techno DJ and musician who has been immersed in the local electronic music scene since the 1990s. He's been performing and promoting his own events for more than a decade. A member of the Droid Behavior techno crew, he has performed at many Droid events. Carrillo is a graduate of the Recording Engineering program at the Musicians' Institute of Technology in Los Angeles, and his resume includes a 6-year stint as the manager of Higher Source Records, helping select music for some of the top DJs in LA. Carrillo is also a Traktor DJ software specialist for Berlin-based music software innovators Native Instruments. As an original member of LoveFix collective Viktor has played a significant role assisting in production and creating community on the dance floor.
Daniel Satta is a new face out of Los Angeles' small but admirably vital and diverse electronic music scene. Being devoted to and involved into electronic music culture for the past 25 years, may it be as DJ, promoter or just as the guy who's got the loudest laughter on the dance floor, Daniel by any means paid his tributes.
Starting out with playing two cassette decks at School-Parties in the late 80s, up to hosting and DJing at “Techno-Parties” back in Darmstadt, Germany in the early and mid- 90's, up to working at the record store pushing Techno and House records around the Millennium, all up to the year 2004 where he relocated to Berlin to start working at Native Instruments, one of the worlds finest audio hard- & software manufacturers, Daniel, not only due to his German heritage, literally came a long way to finally show up at the front door of the electronic music world.
Since his relocation to L.A. in early 2007 he began manifesting an artistic relationship with John von Seggern & Viktor Carrillo, two other iconic figures out of L.A.'s shrill nightlife, in order to form Xeriscape Records; a platform to release contemporary electronic dance music after their fancies.
Daniels' releases as 'Satta' usually tend to be a little darker and quirkier where his output as 'Daniel Zeta' is clearly more playful and dance floor orientated. His latest release, the "Beacon E.P." is available on Beatport.
