Mathias Kaden @ Fly Bermuda 2012

So unfortunately this video doesn't do the audio justice. It was at the perfect balance of loud but not to the point where it would damage your hearing. Mathias is an amazing force of nature on the decks and a new favorite of mine.

Lee Jones at Fly Bermuda 2012

Once again my camera doesn't do the audio justice. It was really just the right balance of loud that didn't hurt your ear drums.

I really enjoyed Lee's set. His love of playing shows right through. He's a pretty funny guy as well.

4 July 2012 Pool Jam Fundraiser for Lincoln Child Care Center feat Dustin Zahn & Raíz


The yards of the Grey Gables Estate in the sleepy city of Piedmont, California will be the home of the annual Pool Jam fundraising event. This 104 year old mansion's grounds will feature three stages of Dynacord and Myer sound systems, Over 15 Local DJs and Producers, An Open Beer Bar, Swimming, Tanning space, a Silent Auction, and special performances by ...

Dustin Zahn
[Enemy, Drumcode, CLR, Rekids]

The story behind Dustin Zahn is not a particularly unique or exciting one. There are no breakthrough moments or mentors who have taken him under their wing. But since 1998, his work has put his career on a slow and steady ascent. Along the way, Dustin has gained over 10 years of experience and unrivaled musical diversity as both a producer and a performer. This alone has earned him respect among techno and house legends, purists, and contemporary DJs. He now performs regularly around the world at some of the most reputable clubs and festivals along with some dodgy, sleazy warehouses and beach parties in-between.

His DJ sets are much like his releases. "I like it dark enough for the boys, but groovy enough for the girls." With a preference for marathon sets and his laid-back approach to life and music, he seamlessly traverses through various genres which creates a unique, hypnotic vibe that isn't found among most DJs.

As a producer, his releases on labels such as Drumcode, Rekids, and CLR have brought him international success. While Dustin's original productions are something of the rare and special sort, it's his remixes that have helped catapult him into the collections of DJs everywhere. As a remixer, he has done work for the likes of Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, Green Velvet, Dubfire, Nic Fanciluli, Mark Broom, Joel Mull, and many other high profile acts. Despite his busy release schedule, he still finds time to own and operate Enemy Records. Founded in 2004, Enemy focuses on the same late-night hypnotic techno that you'll often find in his DJ sets.


Raiz (Acid Circus) LA
[Droid Behavior]

Los Angeles born and bred, Vangelis and Vidal Vargas were raised in the '80s on a steady diet of Latin freestyle, electro, and new wave that pervaded their urban environment. Their father also exposed them to cutting edge progressive acts Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk, planting early seeds for aural exploration. By the mid '90s they were sampling LA's underground club scene and heavily researching electronic music's roots. After years of influence they began to express their musical vision through their own recordings and performances. Vidal and Vangelis eventually found common ground with producer / performer Drumcell, and in 2002 they formed the Droid Behavior event production group and record label out of frustration with the city's lack of knowledge, acceptance, and understanding for Midwest-bred techno and house music and their European counterparts.

As producers Vangelis and Vidal have released and licensed original music and remixes under various aliases (most notably Acid Circus and Raíz) on the Droid Recordings imprint as well as respected labels Historia y Violencia, Tora Tora Tora, DJMag, Music Man, Resident Advisor, Enemy Rec, Gynoid, Reloading, Micro.Fon and Timefog. Their music has been charted, played and supported by Speedy J, Chris Liebing, Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, DVS1, Levon Vincent, Jonas Kopp, etc.

Their intense and inspiring performances have placed them alongside major players Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin, Derrick May, Dan Bell, Surgeon, Sandwell District, Robag, Paco Osuna, Pan Pot, Marco Carola, Detroit Grand Pubahs, and Berghain Residents at undergrounds, festivals, after hours, and club nights from North and South America to Berlin.

Raíz fully harness the capabilities of Traktor, Ableton, and Maschine technology to create a thick blend of Detroit influenced techno and gritty house. They take cues from years of classical training to infuse dynamic musical expression with a delicate balance of mixing board acrobatics and symbiotic intuition. Years of production experience inform their Live PA / Digital DJ hybrid approach, which uses each track's core essentials to form a narrative arch for every unique set. Their releases follow suit and take only key elements from each rhythmic style to shape simplistic and deep music that captures their diverse influences and personal impressions.
