Señor Oz (Afrolicious, ESL Music)-
San Francisco based dj Señor Oz has been rocking dancefloors from Rio to New York City since he started DJng as a high school kid. His eclectic selections mix up dance music from genres ranging from funk,Afrobeat, disco, house, Latin, Hip-Hop and reggae, the unifying factor being the breaks that make the party move. As a tastemaker, producer and promoter he has helped garner worldwide respect for the Afrolicious party he started and has gained critical praise for his remixes that have come out on Six Degrees Records and Akwaaba Records and his mixtapes and original production.
DJ Santero (The Jet Set)
Santero comes from a long family tradition of Latin musicians and Sonidero sound system deejays. He was raised in the mountains, jungles and Atlantic coasts of Central America where he travelled extensively from Guatemala to Panama performing with his father’s Salsa & Cumbia bands. From the ghettos of New York and New Orleans to the barrios of San Francisco and Los Angeles, Santero refined his sonic palette and delivery by performing relentlessly in nightclubs, warehouses and on street corners. Drawing from such diverse musical influences as Reggae, Jazz, Punk, Funk and Hip-Hop, Santero incorporated his traditional Latin upbringing with these western music styles and developed his own brand of international fusion beats. The third album by Santero, entitled Afrika (2011 City Hall Records/Round Whirled Records), is an exploration of the impact African rhythms have had on the music of Latin America. Funky Afro-Beat drums, poly-rhythmic Couper Decaler dance beats & Angolan Kuduro styles blend with Latin percussion & call and response vocals.
Derek Hena (Pink Mammoth)
Co-founder of SF based artist collective Pink Mammoth and manager of Mighty, Derek Hena fell in love Latin house music in 1998 while dancing to the massive club hits from one of his favorite labels Defected and to the Latin House beats of Masters of Work (Louie Vega and Kenny Dope). Blending Latin, Brazilian, Afrobeat and deep house rhythms, Derek's signature DJ style has rocked dance floors at LovEvolution, Burning Man, SF Carnaval, How Weird St Faire, Hawaii Electronic Music Festival, Winter Music Conference, The French Riviera, underground parties, and SF's finest venues big and small.
