Monty Luke is a revolution in sound – a forever push towards forward thinking; a man unafraid to explore the space beyond the assumed boundaries of electronic dance music. What began in Brooklyn quickly spread, as Monty spun his way across the west coast, honing in on a raw, brain-pumping sound that would
catapult him into the great unknown.
Sepehr is a DJ, producer, and remixer, based in the Bay Area.
He started DJing in his teens, and has since become a staple in the San Francisco underground house and techno scene. His DJ sets range from Detroit house and psychedelic techno, to heady electro, classic acid, and the occasional crowd pleasing underground anthem.
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.
A native San Franciscan, Qzen started DJing drum & bass a decade ago and opened up over the years to play house and an assortment of electronic music on her now defunct radio show, Moxie Musik. Her passionate music geekery landed her a five-year stint as the dance and electronic music programmer for iTunes, but before she influenced the digital music market, she was making her voice heard by collaborating with John Tejada, which produced hit tracks like “Sweat (On The Walls)” and “Sucre." Then she spent a few years working with the 40 Thieves, a new disco outfit whose cover of “Don’t Turn If Off” continues to spread its magic. In 2009, Qzen appeared at Decibel Festival in Seattle and created a live set of her own material, which led to an appearance at MUTEK Argentina. She spent six months in Buenos Aires, DJing regularly at the most well-respected clubs, then returned north to collaborate with Mossa for a performance at 2010’s MUTEK in Montreal. In 2011, her first productions under her own name were released. She currently lives in Berlin where she continues to work on collaborative projects and original music and DJ around Europe and North America. Her favorite thing remains moving audiences through the art of DJing.
