ANTHONY MANSFIELD (Wurst Music Co, Hector Works)
TURNING OUT THE DANCE FLOOR!! DISCO DEEP HOUSE MACHINE MR. MANSFIELD RETURNS TO LA FROM SF!!
Anthony Mansfield has been on a 18-year journey through the world of psychedelic dance music ever since attending the now-legendary full moon massives of San Franciscoâ€™ s Wicked Crew in the early 90â€™ s. Anthony spent the rest of the decade in New York, spreading the gospel of deep house across the Empire State with a late- night radio show, his 8-year-running weekly, and the countless underground parties that gave birth to his own crew, HectorWorks Soundsystem. After an exhausting and debaucherous 2-year run as GM, talent booker, and resident DJ at upstateâ€™ s largest live music venue, The Odyssey, Anthony was ready to return to San Francisco. Anthony hit the West Coast running in 2001, joining his old friend DJ M3 as resident DJ and co-promoter of the infamous Green Gorilla Lounge in a string of successful weekly club nights, true seat-of-your-pants underground parties, and blown- out monthly events across the Bay Area, with some of the cityâ€™ s and worldâ€™ s best names in dance music. Anthony has left his mark on Burning Man for the last decade as well, at the Space Lounge, Green Gorilla, and Disco Knights sound camps, with a trail of exhausted dancers and party people in the wake of his many epic sets on the playa. Anthony has been producing his own particular brand of dance music since his first release on Rong Records in â€™ 04 with Ben Cook as â€œ Barfly". Quickly moving to found his own label, Hector Works, in 2005 with NYC deep-house production wizard Nick Chacona, Anthony has worked with Garth, Tal M. Klein, Sneak-E Pete, M3, and others in the last five years, releasing tracks on Gomma, Moodmusic, Aniligital, and Om Records. His tunes have received nods (and plays) from some of the worldâ€™ s top DJs, including Dimitri from Paris, Harvey, Greg Wilson, Doc Martin, Idjut Boys, Ivan Smaggle, The Revenge, Pete Herbert, and Playgroup. Camped out in his room at Moulton Studios.
TONE OF ARC live
DEREK & ZOE COME TO BRING US A TRULY STELLAR LIVE SET!!
Derek aka Dead Seal/ Tone of Arc
San Francisco producer Derrick Boyd aka Dead Seal has been making music for most of his life, one of those special individuals possessed with the gift of perfect pitch. He brings a glimpse of real musicality to the underground techno scene, something rarely experienced on the dance floor. In the studio as Dead Seal he's carved an austere path of "Nuclear Winter" atonality and Skinny Puppy theatrics to create, what could be best described as, "shoegazer techno". He also sings, plays clarinet, guitar and bass, and live this vast sea of musical expression creates a sense of a Grand-Guignol cabaret for rivetheads. It is this sense of bravado and daring that blurs the line between traditional live performance and the microprocessor obsessed futurism of the techno scene. Dead Seal's powerful stage presense drawn from old school cats like Iggy Pop also helps to partially define the originality of his music. He himself describes these new direction in sound as discovering the infinite within his mortal remains and posits that this is the dichotomy of existence. Even the alias Dead Seal is part of his philosophy acting as "a symbol of my past, present, and future lives- reminding me that I am more than just a man."
Boyd has been a recording junkie since his teens and has created a volume of more than a hundred techno tracks which he jokingly refers to as his "Dead Seal Scrolls" . In addition to creating his own music, he also divides time between playing bass in the band Landshark along with noted San Francisco DJ/producers Lance DeSardi and Tasho as well as his latest project- the Machine Forest- with his girlfriend Zoe Presnic. In the midst of all of that activity, Dead Seal's debut album Corpus Animus dropped last fall on maverick San Francisco techno label Auralism Records-a natural fit. The only question that now remains about the enigmatic Dead Seal is why a guy so clearly talented has to date only released an amount of singles that can be easily counted on one's hands? Boyd responds in his own inimitable style, "I am really hard on myself and demand a lot of myself before I die. I have kept my music a secret for so long that it is too early for me to have any real accomplishments. But I assure everyone that the best has yet to come, I'm just getting warmed up. 'Bout time after a hundred songs... and twenty five years. Music takes a lifetime, you are never retired, and if you are you better have no fingers or lips."
