It is an honor to offer the musical skills of the following dj’s, who have each been seminal in both defining a sound and helping to forward uptempo dance music throughout the years.
*Mason Roberts (Analog Network/All Ours - PDX)
Arriving in Portland in the mid 90’s with a deep love of House music, Mason immediately descended into producing numerous events that would help shape the local electronic music landscape. Already a talented dj, his sounds and skills have refined over the years creating an exciting contemporary sound that both draws from the deeper sounds of the past and a current day edgier techy auditory texture.
*Maximus (Fire - PDX)
Also arriving in Portland in the mid 90’s and representing the techno sounds, Maximus’s 24/7 events along with local favorite Renegade Rhythms, essentially placed techno as both a culture and sound within Portland’s electronic music community. As a dj, Maximus is exceptionally skilled and has a vast collection of techno that extends from the deep to the driving. He is a master at using these sounds to keep the dancefloor completely engaged throughout his sets.
*Mercedes (All Ours/Uniting Souls - PDX)
Driven by her love of house music, her passion for dance and defining her sound through her presence as both a strong woman and a deep and compassionate human, Mercedes has carved out a special place in NW DJ culture. She can be seen getting her groove on behind the decks, while she whips the dancefloor into a frenzy. http://soundcloud.com/ladycubana
*Merchants Of (Lower - PDX)
Andrew Bitans and Quillan Rushton, two vibrant dj’s in their own right, merged their musical mastery to form Merchant Of somewhere in the new century. Since then, they have been capturing the attention of dancefloors with their dirty, techy, bass driven soundscapes. http://soundcloud.com/MerchantsOf
*Manoj (Uplift - PDX)
Manoj emerged in 1991 as one of the pioneering event producers in the NW electronic dance culture. Producing a multitude of successful gatherings in Portland, Eugene and Seattle, he initially became known for his unique style of events that were associated with inspirational experiences for the attendees.
