Every year I wish and hope and vibe as hard as I can and so far I have not received anything on my wishlist. World peace, financial sustainability for artists, people no longer using cars, everyone suddenly feeling comfortable enough to dance at nightclubs.
I KNOW it's hard to get a guy like me a present right? Well, Here's the good news. This year, instead of receiving presents, I'm just going to forget about gifts and do *exactly* what I want.
AND ALL I WANT TO DO IS DANCE WITH YOU AT ...
9:30pm - 10:30pm // Robin Simmons
10:30pm - 11:30pm // Trevor Sigler
11:30pm - 12:30am // Rick Preston
12:30am - 1:30am // Robin Simmons
1:30am - 2:30am // Trevor Sigler
2:30am - 3:30am // Rick Preston
If you found yourself regularly losing your mind until 6am at 1077 Mission St. (now the new restaurant TBD ) with the best music and energy you had heard and felt in years...
... then you probably already know Rick.
Yeah, he played my parties at my space FIFTEEN TIMES
He's kind of the all star of the all stars. He's the soundtrack to your L I F E.
He also is a DJ of more than 30 years, and a producer who has a quite respectable discogs artist page. Not to mention he rocks the party every time.
I got my education at the Rick Preston academy of House and Disco - GET YOURS!
Although Bay Area DJ Rick Preston started off his career playing disco and funk in the early 80's, he used his experience in the booming 80's alternative scene to hone his DJing skills. Rick would be part of various gatherings in bars and night clubs, leading their nights with swooning tunes and industrial beats. And as the music progressed, so would his attraction to what would lead to an even bigger movement, House Music.
In the early 90's, Rick became involved with promotion alongside his frequent DJ gigs. Rick was helping put on club nights and raves in their beginning stages, when the underground was at its strongest.
Rick has performed at many of the Bay Area's most prominent events, like The Gathering, Stompy, Salted, Groove Kitchen, Boogie Buffet, Cool World, 2nd Sunday, Spundae, etc. His residencies have included clubs like San Jose’s F/X, Cardiff Lounge, The Oasis, Ajax, The Usual, and San Francisco’s 1015 Folsom, The EndUp, DV8, and DNA Lounge among many others in and out of the Bay Area.
While his DJ sets are mostly considered deep and funky, Rick enjoys taking the crowd on "the journey" in his sets. Rick has a special flair for bringing together a multitude of genres which can include soulful vocals, disco, tribal rhythms, tech-house, acid house, a classic track or two, or even a mind awakening spoken word.
As a house music producer, Rick's motto of quality not quantity has stood him in good stead with some superb labels: Glasgow Underground, Viva! Recordings, Guesthouse, Worship Recordings, AfterHours, Eight-Tracks, Kolour Recordings, Amfibius Recordings, Character Recordings, Freeze Records, Big Big Trax, and BCE.
Rick has also done remixes for Nervous Records, Amenti Music, Selekta Recordings, Limestone Recordings, Motion Music, Housetown Records, Coastline Recordings, Blue Iguana, Bananza Recordings, and Mimosa Recordings.
A longtime coming, Trevor Sigler has been Odyssey Family since I can remember, and he is an incredibly talented and focused DJ + Producer. He *destroyed* me at Honey and I can't wait to hear him at Odyssey.
