This is a VERY special night for so many reasons but mainly to honor one of the most talented local artists. This show is long over due and this line up is beyond average levels.
SLOPE 114 are not your average local heroes, but WAY more. Dmitri Ponce who as Dmitri SFC/The Sexicans was once known for putting out some of the dopest underground house music in the early 2000's under his COA label so he is not new to making banging dance trax. Elise Gargalikis is an accomplished vocalist for years both within our house music culture - 12's for AtJazz and Say Yeah! (MK) cement her credibility on wax -and without. Her voice is unmistakably hers and her ability to weave intricate melodies around Dmitri's abstract modular grooves makes SLOPE 114 what they are. Elise is also responsible for the popular Analog Ladies group for female synthesists and electronic musicians and is a core member of the Celect group who produce female-centric DJ events in SF.
In 2014 when KiNK came to play our 3 year anniversary one of the few requests he had during his stay in SF was to meet SLOPE 114 who are recognized worldwide amongst those in the know for building modular synths from scratch. Dmitri and Elise have created an entire culture around their custom modular setups and in 2012 launched the Church of the Super Serge monthly modular night at Robotspeak. You may know Slope 114 for one of the dopest 12 inch singles of 2015 called "Satya".. They show off their incredible talents on quirky videos in front of spaceship level modular control grids pumping out serious flavor. SLOPE 114 was invited to play Ministry of Sound last year and is part of Monty Luke's Black Catalogue Records. They are hands down one of San Francisco's most talented artists with major contributions to the modular synth culture. WE ARE SUPER EXCITED TO HAVE THEM PLAY FOR US... We look forward to this night.. In full support of this show we have another VERY achieved live performer who is hands down also one of the most up and coming artists about to blow up, Ben WInans aka ROCHE of RUN THE LENGTH OF YOUR WILDNESS.. He has also released on various labels including 100% Silk and Mathematics and he is starting to tour overseas. This line up is NO JOKE.. Our very own MIKE BEE will be supporting this gig as well as BOB FIVE who will not be asleep at the store but rather quite awake dropping jams for you on this night... HOUSEPITALITY..we got you!!!
