THURSDAY DECEMBER 27 (8PM-5AM*) THE LOOP WITH:
ALLAND BYALLO [Airdrop | Poker Flat | Bad Animal | Liebe*Detail | KONTROL - GERMANY]
Alland Byallo is a DJ, producer, label owner, graphic designer and event organizer – a tour de force within the club and underground music scenes. Born in Los Angeles, Alland began his musical journey at a young age. Trying his hand at piano and trumpet as a young boy and influenced by the experimental electronic sounds of the early 90s, Alland grew captivated with the world of dance music, began experimenting with basic production and eventually bought his first pair of turntables. While working at WAX Records, LA’s now defunct authority on dance music, Alland’s tastes matured, and a move to San Francisco in 2003 saw Alland’s star rise quickly; while in SF, Alland honed his talents DJ-ing at respected venues stateside and overseas, started his own an underground dance music label named Nightlight Music and launched one of California’s most inspired techno-focused nightclub events, the monthly [KONTROL]. Gaining global attention producing gems for definitive record labels like Poker Flat, Liebe*Detail, Dirt Crew and Missive, by the time Alland garnered four stars from influential web-based dance music magazine Resident Advisor for his original full-length album release, Brick By Brick (2009), Alland’s devotion to the techno-house sound was plain to see and his fate as one of dance music’s major talents was reasonably sealed. At the same time, Alland’s ongoing DJ residency at San Francisco's legendary [KONTROL] party found him sharing the stage with a roster of talent that reads like a who’s who in underground house and techno, leading to a solid demand for Alland at dance music gatherings around the globe – often as a headliner at renowned events and venues like Berlin’s Panoramabar, Watergate, Bar25, Cookies and Tresor, Munich’s Harry Klein, Brazil’s D-Edge, Tokyo’s La Fabrique, and Detroit’s annual DEMF Movement Festival among many others. More recently, a move to Berlin has Alland expanding his horizons and focusing not only on DJing and producing but also, label management, with the launch of Bad Animal. An independent imprint with charitable aims, Bad Animal is set to explore the more intimate side of dance music and cultivate productions from Alland and a close-knit group of friends. Endlessly inspired by his new home, Byallo continues to work hard and forge ahead with steady musical output, adding a greater organic touch to his productions – more vocals, more experimentation, and dare it be said, a little more techno soul.
ZENBI [Skint / Great Stuff / Hotfingers - DC]

A handful of ZENBI releases have graced the Beatport Top Ten – including Stefano Noferini’s remix of Double Trouble, which claimed the number one position on the Tech House charts for over a month.
