Quivver is world-renowned DJ/producer/songwriter/vocalist John Graham. He is best known as founding member and producer of Quivver, but it is not surprising that any music John produces becomes in high demand by so many DJs. He has also collaborated with Hybrid and Planet Funk. He has traveled the world and performed every conceivable hot spot from Glastonbury, UK to Pacha, Buenos Aires to Asia to his enviable residency at the notable Twilo, NYC to Avalon, L.A., Glastonbury, Live8, Coachella and Ultra.
How many other producers could lay claim to having their music played by house giants like Sasha, Tong, Tenaglia, Oakenfold and Digweed, while also having his early Skanna efforts lapped up by drum & bass royalty Fabio, LTJ Bukem, Grooverider and Doc Scott? Originally signing with A&M in 1994, John moved on to join Paul Oakenfold's Perfecto label, then signed to Virgin Records before establishing his own Boz Boz label.
In May 2010 John released the "Yeah Yeah" EP on Bedrock Records, which went straight to no. 2 on the beatport techno chart and stayed there 'til August. Summer 2010 also saw John back in the UK, DJ'ing to a packed Glastonbury and a sold out Ministry of Sound. A follow up to "Yeah Yeah," "Orgazoid" dropped in October, reaching no 4 on the same chart. November sees the release of his Funktribe EP on Yoshitoshi. Other 2010 productions included a collaboration with Anthony Pappa and remixes for Hernan Cattaneo, Rabbit in The Moon and Monaque.. No rest for the wicked!
In short- Come see why Quivver has consistently stayed in the top 50 DJ's in the world
Matt and Mike are both midwest transplants who came together over a mutual interest in blips, beats and technology. Having worked together since 2007, the two have helped broaden San Francisco’s musical palette with their eclectic tastes and diverse sets. Matt Wilder, originally from Dayton, Ohio (affectionately known by some as “the little d”) spent his early days deeply influenced by a small yet lively techno scene in Cincinnati and the nearby techno sound emanating from Detroit. Seizing an opportunity to head to the West Coast, Matt moved in 2007 and promptly met former Detroit native, Mike Perry, who had also migrated west a few years earlier. Both having cut their teeth on the midwest underground, the two had a mutual appreciation for all styles of electronic music. Lamenting about the lack of chill rooms one night, the two teamed forces with Greg Bird and started a monthly called Afterglow, dedicated to the more cerebral and relaxed side of electronic music. Throughout their time together in San Francisco, Matt and Mike both found themselves falling for a smoother, slower and sexier house sound brought forth by artists such as Dixon, Move d, and Wolf & Lamb. Soon after they put their tastes together with a new dancefloor oriented persona entitled Fedora. Since then, Fedora has worked hard to bring their concept of house music fused with disco, latin and soul to underground San Francisco club nights and underground afterparties.
In the past eight years Nikita’s perseverance and pure love for quality dance music has placed him among the top DJs of San Francisco’s world-famous club scene. In 2005 Nikita was chosen to host his own radio show on Northern California's Energy 92.7 FM – The Massive Mix. It was Nikita’s raw talent that also landed him a residency at San Francisco's legendary nightclub, The EndUp. Performing anywhere from 2 to 8 hours; Nikita's playfulness behind the decks takes you on a ride seamlessly blending sick minimal grooves, heavy basslines, melodic synths, and twisted beats, while still keeping it soulful and deep. Nikita has played along side the likes of Lee Burridge, Steve Lawler, Steve Bug, M.A.N.D.Y., Tom Stephan (Superchumbo), Craig Richards and Damian Lazarus, with inspirations coming from friends like Ms. Honey Dijon, Tedd Patterson and Danny Tenaglia. Through his broad musical taste and genre bending, Nikita has always managed to create a unique dance floor experience that continues to draw a diverse audience.
