| ABOUT THE ARTISTS |
Santiago Salazar aka DJ S2 started deejaying in the early '90s inspired by mix tapes his brother was bringing back from the Gay underground scene in Los Angeles. His style has always been a mixture of house and techno. After moving to Detroit, Santiago began his music training with Mike Banks, label founder of Underground Resistance.
He mixed and edited several UR releases and remixed the mighty "Return of the Dragons" and DJ Rolando's "Aguila". He released his own tracks under monikers like Aztech Sol and Seldom Seen and became a core member of the Los Hermanos and Galaxy 2 Galaxy live bands, using his DJ skills to control the flow and intensity of the live performances. Alongside long time friend Esteban Adame, Santiago recently formed Ican (short for mexican) and released a bunch of highly acclaimed 12"s on Carl Craigs Planet E imprint as well as ICAN productions & Rush Hour.

Tom has a reputation for digging and dealing forgotten gems in the modern boogie / disco scene which lead to him setting up the legendary LOTUS LAND record store and label. Originating from Milwaukee, Noble moved to the sun-drenched west coast and brought the spirit of Lotus Land with him to Los Angeles in 2006. As he scoured the bins and garages of SoCal for the next sweaty disco slab to unearth and bring to light, he shifted focus somewhat to the spacey synth drive of disco's mid-'80s melodic offspring known as boogie - inspired in no small part by Dam-Funk's low-key, underground boogie revolution known as Funkmosphere. Noble is responsible for expert edits and original releases on D.C. label People's Potential Unlimited, Clone and Future Times plus his own ventures Superior Elevation Records and Whatchawannado.

Damon Palermo has been making adventurous house and disco music under the moniker Magic Touch since August 2011. In a short time the producer/DJ has amassed an impressive following and several well-received releases, kicking off with the critically-lauded 100% Silk release "I Can Feel The Heat," which was a recommended release of the week at Boomkat and made 20JazzFunkGreats Best of 2011 list. More recently he released a split 12" with close collaborator Ital.
Magic Touch live sets mix the psychedelic ethos of San Francisco with the house movements of Chicago, Detroit and smatters the whole thing with a solid nod to the UK rave underground. In demand at festivals including Sonar, Unsound and CTM, as well as a recent tour of Japan and South Korea, Magic Touch has also DJ'd at places like Berlin's legendary Panorama Bar, Lux Frágil, and Dommune in Tokyo. Back home in America, Magic Touch just finished a 13-date joint North American tour with Laurel Halo, Ital, and M.Geddes Gengras. Early 2013 sees the release of a new Magic Touch track on the Derrick May & Jimmy Edgar We Love...Detroit compilation.
LA’s Suzanne Kraft released the Green Flash EP last year on the Running Back label. Kraft is the brainchild of Los Angeles-based house producer Diego Herrera, also of 100% Silk band Pharoahs. Some refer to his tracks as slow-motion house or mutant disco boogie. His newer release, Horoscope, on Young Adult, focuses much more on analog synthesizers and drum machines—a crisp, sparkling sound somewhere between Todd Terje and Space Dimension Controller. (There's also a wonderfully meandering guitar solo in "Horoscope," inspiring visions of Durutti Column being airlifted into Ibiza, ca. 1982.)
DONUTS Founder and resident DJ PICKPOCKET, a.k.a. Kat Matutina,, recently moved back to Los Angeles (after 10 years) with an 8 year period in San Francisco and some time in NYC. Pickpocket spins a variety of records ranging from rare disco and boogie, to acid house, detroit, freestyle, baltimore club, ghetto tech, italo, dutch electro, post punk, minimal/synth wave, freestyle, cosmic synth and 90's house. Donuts has been creating parties with both live bands and up and coming DJs since 2006 which began in San Francisco, and eventually occasionally spread to New York and Los Angeles. Donuts has been dedicated to bringing artists together where people can experience both live music and DJs and dance to new and vintage sounds in a fun, underground atmosphere complete with lasers, visuals, and free donuts at every party!
