Wax Tailor (DJ Set):
French trip hop/hip hop producer (born 19 July 1975 in Vernon, Eure).
Now based in Berkeley, California, Electronic music producer Thriftworks (real name Jake Atlas) has been producing music since he was sixteen. With his eclectic mix of erratic, wavering samples and deep bass, Thriftworks has crafted a very unique and dynamic sound that, album after album, proves to be as versatile as the artist himself. Blurring the lines between Hip-Hop and a more psychedelic sound, he can create interesting, unexpected works incorporating melodic, calmer tones as well as hard-hitting, lively rhythms.
IT ALL STARTED WITH WU-TANG & DAFT PUNK... Part mythical desert harlequin, part modern soul conductor, Mikey Lion is more than a DJ––He’s a freak of nature and a controller of energy. The San Diego-native has earned a dusty mystique over the past few years as the center of the Desert Hearts movement and as a house and techno provocateur with a stage presence that suggests he will ride this wave all the way to the top. If there's one thing Mikey does well, it's get the party started.
Lion has brought the mothafuckin' ruckus to the stages of Lightning in a Bottle, the dustiest storms at Burning Man, and The Do LaB at Coachella, earning nods from Claude VonStroke, Jamie Jones, and Green Velvet in the process. In doing so, Lion and his signature top hat have developed a boisterous voice in the House & Techno scene with strong tribal, hip-hop, and psychedelic elements.
Although Sacha’s sound has evolved throughout the years, you can recognize his signature in everything he creates: meandering between the dirty bass-heavy “booty” plains of electronic dance music and its’ futuristic shores; his music is funky, creative, has character, uses a palette of rich sounds and tells a story with layers of depth and emotion. It also has a sonic quality that makes it stand out. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for this gentleman with a weird little thing for sweaty dance workouts & happy bass-massaged faces…
Marbs’ musical talents and humble dj presence commands any dance floor with his sounds of mystical darkness and whimsical tribal rhythms; the night sky is the limit for this King of Darkness.
