-For My People-
DJ Kyan has been in the sonic kitchen cooking up some juicy and spicy beats. Open up your ears and taste the bass. Winter can leave us feeling constricted or a bit sluggish and sometimes we all need just a little kick of “cayenne” to get our blood pumping in order to dance the night away. With his years of training at SAE Expression College Of Digital Arts, running live sound for Verducci Event Productions in Emeryville, and spinning tracks for Bay Area Variety Shows such as Nudie Nubies, Boys to Manarchy, and Tourrettes Without Regrets, you can rest assured.This DJ may appear silent, but his sets are deadly!
DJ Angie Huang:
Angie is always listening for good music, anytime and anywhere. From the woods to wooden floors, she’s played for dancers all along the west coast at house parties, national events, and her own home scenes in Sacramento and the Bay Area. Ever since she started dancing and DJing in 2009, Angie has been an avid social dancer and keeps her ears on the pulse of what makes people move. Her DJ philosophy – feed the floor so they want more. She enjoys breaking a song down into the elements of what makes it great for dancing, and serves up phat beats, tasty rhythms, and weaving harmonies. You can always find Angie grooving behind the booth during her set, and with descriptions like “raw kinetic catharsis” and “explosive love heartbeat”, they are something to experience for yourself.
