Saturday, September 9th
9pm – 2am
For over 2 decades, DJ Dan has been a leader in the Electronic Dance Music scene.
It’s tough to say more about DJ Dan than what is most likely known by just about any dance music fan that has ever taken interest in the genre. Just take a look at what some other legends have said:
“Dan is a pivotal ingredient to live DJing and production, a real teacher to all.”-DJ Sneak
“The thing I love about Dan is that he’s always had a funky spirit and he always pushes the elements of music.”-Carl Cox
To those who still may not know all that much on Dan, we’ll help you out from under that rock. As you can tell from just a bit of the praise from musical icons DJ Dan has received, our West Coast bred friend has been around the block a few times (and turning heads all the while). Music has been forever entrenched in Dan’s life, having garnered a superior record collection at the age of 8 that would give Amoeba Records a run for its money. Starting his professional musical career with some smaller clubs in Seattle and then Los Angeles, DJ Dan had a rise to recognition in the dance music community that could be considered meteoric. Forming the Funky Techno Tribe in 1993, DJ Dan fused together breakbeat, house, dub, and techno to create a sound that later was fittingly crowned, “West Coast House”. And with renowned tracks like “Needle Damage”, and remixes for everyone from Depeche Mode to Duck Sauce, Dan’s production prowess is undeniable. The journey that Dan’s talents have taken him on could go on for pages and pages. He has played alongside the likes of fellow legends from Carl Cox to John Digweed with a mission of making club goers unable to fight the urge to dance the night away.
A transplant on the east coast from Southern California, Briddy’s sound spans genres and explores the world of electronic music.
She brings west coast flavors rooted in disco and hip-hop to tech house and broken beats that emote her passion for music. Briddy is currently based in North Carolina and is part of the Sub-Culture DJ collective in Fayetteville, mixing at their regular monthly parties in Fayetteville and Raleigh, as well as their monthly radio broadcast, SubCulture Soundsystem on dancegruv.net. Also the curator of a Fayetteville monthly dance party called Neighborhood Watch, she focuses on showcasing the best local electronic djs and producers in NC and surrounding states. She can also be found spinning in Charlotte venues regularly, and has provided support for artists such as Left/Right, Deekline, Colette, and Agent Orange.
For over twenty four years Melodious Funk has been doing his part to keep the house music scene in the Queen City of Charlotte alive and breathing.
At a young age growing up in the clubs, he realized he had a love for dance music and the Dj’s that moved the dance floors. Taking in all styles of music he realized at the time that the House sounds coming from Chicago was the sound that spoke to him. With early influences of Mark Farina, and Gene Farris he started to craft a House Sound of his very own. Since that time he has held residencies at the following clubs over the years: 618, Liquid Lounge, LAVA, EDEN, TONIC, and currently he can be found at SOUL Gastrolounge as well as hosting MOVE parties. Over the years Melodious Funk has opened for talents such as as Mark Farina, Gene Farris, Mark Grant, Colette, Jesse Saunders, King Britt, Joe Pompeo, DBOW, Frankie Bones, J Paul Ghetto, Doc Link, EMAN, Robbie Hardkiss, Corduroy Mavericks, Real Time Hand Motion, DJ Dan, Robb Swinga, and Golf Clap just to name a few. Always pushing the boundaries of House music for the love of anything that is HOUSE!
