Vancouver based, ANDROMO has been playing for the past 15 years at some of the most prestigious venues and events in Latin America, offering club goers a taste of his fresh techy eclectic house each and every weekend. His sets include groovy techno to minimal and tech house. Constantly re-editing tracks using Ableton Live, Andromo’s ongoing desire to make every set stand out from the others is very evident. The music emanating from the man is that perfect club mix of driving percussion and soaring musicality, bursting out of the speakers, soaking everyone in melody, drenching them in sound. On the floor, where it really matters, his crowd experience all the peaks and troughs that make his music so unique. All this comes with vision and experience. As one of the hardest working Producer and Djs in El Salvador, he is the creator and director of Rainforest Music, an electronic music artist collective, representing the best and most acclaimed Djs around central and South America. Rainforest Music parties are unique and trendy hosting Globe Trotting Djs to Salvadorean finest crowd. His team includes photographers, designers, creatives, audio engineers, and web programmers feeding the movement with top class work! His rise to the top has been the result of pure talent and dedication, taking him across boundaries, playing and producing in Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Chile, Guatemala, Panama, Honduras and Costa Rica. Alejandro’s passion for music over throws the boundaries of just playing records.
Doza a.k.a. Carlos Mendoza (of LawnChair Generals) is very aware of the effect the gloomy Seattle climate has on his music. It’s even a point of pride. The weather can drive the city’s music makers indoors and underground, where they cooperate on technique, equipment and events; music makers like Pezzner, Lusine, Hanssen, Raica, Mat Anderson. The camaraderie influences the music, as does the low light. If you’re any fan of deep house you’ve likely heard Doza’s music. Carlos has been contributing to the global house music underground since 2001 as one half of LawnChair Generals, one of the most respected early 00’s house music duos in the U.S. Doza’s solo sound could be considered deeper, darker, more textured than the early works of LawnChair Generals. The first Doza remix of Hanna’s “Time” on Viva Recordings in 2002, with its dubbed-out pads and hypnotic rhythms, foreshadowed his future body of work. From his initial offering on Doc Martin’s Sublevel imprint, simply titled “The Doza E.P.” and his 2015 Get Physical debut “Ixchel”, to his latest on Giom’s Supremus Records, his music always resonates with a common theme; simple and articulate electronic rhythms carrying strong narratives that evolve over time and draw the dance floor in. In 2015 Doza partnered with Pezzner and Michael Manahan to form the dance label Hunt & Gather with a mission to produce and deliver forward thinking dance tracks to the discerning dance floors of the world.
