The Werks
The Werks
The Werks have emerged & established themselves as a national powerhouse; delivering an electrifying dance party to beloved fans across the musical spectrum. Fusing psychedelic shredding, wailing organ, and slap bass
with synthesizers and modern dance beats, their live shows encompass a sensational blend of jam-rock and deep electronic funk.
These genre-benders will be touring throughout 2016 in support of their 4th studio album, 'Inside a Dream' released in November 2015, which takes listeners on a track-by-track musical voyage through the heart of a dream; into their own hopes, fears, and aspirations. The seasoned jam-centric quartet brings a sonically superior mix of otherworldly explorations and revelatory lyrics to this artistic and mature musical statement.
Through sanguine compositions that effortlessly transition from spacious soundscapes to driving rhythms, the album merges multiple genres in a style that only this Ohio quartet can deliver. Throughout the 11-track release, Inside
a Dream remains raw yet polished, and emotional yet whimsical... it is within these contradictions where the depth of the band truly shines.
Catch them soon in a city near you, or at the 7th incarnation of their “Werk Out Music & Arts Festival” in August, which draws 5000+ people annually to Ohio.
Mark Farina
Mark Farina
Mark Farina has thrilled crowds globally, entertaining over 1 million fans per year. As one of the most ubiquitous DJs in Dance Music, Farina’s known for both his unique style of mixing Jazz, Downtempo and House Music as well as being the creator of Mushroom Jazz: West Coast jazzy, organic productions combined with East Coast Hip-Hop, Urban beats.

Drawing from his vibrant youth, which included being a trumpet player in marching band, a drummer in a nu wave cover band and a guest DJ, Friday nights on WNUR (Chicago), Mark found his passion for the luscious world of vinyl, turntables and nightclubs. At 16, Farina began his DJ career as a resident at Chicago’s underage mecca, Medusa’s. At the same time Mark joined forces with emerging DJs Derrick Carter and Chris Nazuka then moved into a loft space called Rednail.

Rednail became infamous not only for raucous parties but also as the home to the trio’s first productions under the moniker, Symbols & Instruments. Their release,”MOOD,” sold 35,000 copies in the US & UK and is credited as “the first ambient house track.”

Farina relocated to San Francisco in 1992. Fans embraced Mark’s downtempo style and he started co-hosting a weekly Mushroom Jazz club night in ʻ93. In 3 short years, Farina established a fanatical, cult-like following for his Mushroom Jazz sound and in 1996, OM Records released the first mixed comp CD, simply titled, Mushroom Jazz. Other notable releases include OMʼs Seasons, San Francisco Sessions Vol. 1, Connect, House of Om, Live in Tokyo, and Fabric 40.

When Mark’s not touring the world, you’re likely to find him in his studio working on new releases & podcasts for his label, Great Lakes Audio. On days off he’ll be cruising his ’68 Toronado with his son, Dylan (aka “little peanut”), and his Yorkie, Pumpkin.

Voted as one of the top DJ’s in the world by URB, MUZIK and BPM magazines, Mark Farina’s taste making skills continue to turn the heads of seasoned Dance Music veterans as well as newcomers to the scene.

Filip is a Danish producer now living in LA who plays bass in Ima Robot; Jeffrey throws the infamous Blow Up party in San Francisco and used to be in the hardwave band the Calculators with Luke and Vito from the Rapture. Poolside’s debut single “Do You Believe?” was charted by Todd Terje, Dimitri From Paris, and The Magician, and Dazed & Confused praised the song for its “pop-tinged disco, brimming with optimistic vocals and retro acid synths,” while NME lauded its “supremely casual decadence.” “Take Me Home,” Poolside’s second song to be released, was the first song on Aeroplane’s In Flight Entertainment compilation. Poolside’s debut album Pacific Standard Time was released in 2012.

With roots in the Detroit underground, booking local and international DJs to play at their own parties, Golf Clap have established themselves as in-demand artists and performers in their own right, via an irresistible combination of hard work, talent and consistently being the last guys standing, wherever the party ends up.

Whether they're playing clubs, warehouse shows, or at an impromptu after-party – which they more than likely arranged themselves – the sheer love these guys have for playing records and making people dance is evident. Just ask Lee Foss, Shiba San or any of the other DJs who've shared the decks with them for a B2B session: Golf Clap can mix it with the very best of them.

TNERTLE
TNERTLE
The music produced by TNERTLE is a straight-up reflection of the name itself—one-of-a-kind with no hints of what to expect, yet it strikes a chord with your innermost curiosities.

TNERTLE is the concoction of Trent Campbell, a Denver native and Berklee College of Music graduate. Trent took to music at an early age beginning on bass guitar. Like most musicians, he went through the metamorphosis of high school jazz bands to prestigious collegiate ensembles to post-grad rock bands. The experience laid the pavement for a vibrant musical palate, but Campbell yearned to put his Contemporary Writing & Production degree to the utmost test. He sought out to create music that appealed to music lovers from all walks of life while naturally hopscotching around different styles ranging from funk to hip-hop to EDM and beyond. Coming up during the advent of electronic music, Campbell knew the style matched his skill set, but wanted to ensure the live performance element was fully intact.

Thusly, TNERTLE was born. In addition to bass, Campbell began learning the ins and outs of midi controllers to give performances a humanistic approach. Rather than play it safe and trigger different sections of the music by simply pushing buttons, Campbell performs melodies using Machine Controller cradled in snare drum stand and tilted toward the audience. This allows him to captivate audiences by giving them a visual display of his instrumental mastery and improvisation skills.

TNERTLE solo shows are the perfect compliment to Campbell’s original “full band” configuration of the group. Calling upon an up-to-9-member musical squad that includes live drums, horns, guitars and MCs, TNERTLE has a reputation for giving audiences the ultimate audio and visual smorgaspboard. However, TNERTLE solo shows are evolving into a whole different creature as Campbell performs never-before-heard remixes, introduces brand new original material, incorporates live improvisation, and reworks songs played by the full band.

Regardless of ensemble, Campbell’s primary objective has always been to get people dancing to melodic representations that bob and weave through all of life’s intricacies and emotions. Whether it’s utilizing big beats, composing smooth melodies, and working within flowing chord structures, TNERTLE will connect with listeners who want to let loose and have no preconceived notions of how life is suppose to be or where it’s going to take you. Go with the flow and you can ensure that you’ll have the time of your life.
