Maris Moon is on a mission. Signed to a new label. Commencing a coast to coast tour. Album on the way. During a three year break from dj'ing full-time Maris spent most of his time in the studio knocking out remixes of artists like The xx, Junkie XL and Young American Primitive. He also wrote a full length cinematic downtempo album under the name Alone on the Moon, licensed several tracks to independent films and produced a house track for the Obama campaign that features former Paul Oakenfold vocalist Moira and charted at #4 on CdBaby. In 2009 his remix of Luke Parkin's 'Livin In Sunshine' was included on German label Kingdom Kome Black's successful compilation series Dirty Electro Vol 5. He was recently signed to the Chicago based label Invisibles by Crystal Castle's remix impresario Alex Zelenka. Maris has played festivals like EMF and Together As One and held residencies at countless clubs, recently playing DJ Mag 2010 Top 100 club Asylum. Representing his two California hometowns of San Diego and San Francisco, he has received reviews and coverage in nearly every major dance publication including Muzik, DJ, XLR8R, Urb and Mixmag. He is most notably known for his work in the UK hard house and techno scene, where for several years he frequently performed. His early struggles to gain traction across the pond paid off in 1999 when a reviewer from Muzik magazine caught one of his sets in front of thousands at London's Camden Palace and called it “the best I've ever heard at Frantic.” Maris held residencies and performed at some of the top clubs in the UK including Progress, Frantic, Fevah, Heaven, Trinity, Ministry of Sound, Hotdog and a US tour for Sundissential. Under the alias Gravity Boys, Maris released “Buzz” on the Tuff Twins label which garnered critical acclaim in Europe. The track was added to the Ministry of Sound compilation Hard Energy mixed by Fergie and Yomanda which reached Top 20 in the UK compilation charts.
Maris is currently calling Honolulu his temporary home and can be seen at his monthly residency for Odin Works at SoHo. This August, Maris will be co-headlining Hawaii's Audible Emissions Festival with long-time pal Lisa Lashes. An album and a series of remixes will be available on Invisibles at Beatport, iTunes and other retailers this summer.

The youngest brother of Dance music LEGEND, Superstar DJ KEOKI, Miko Franconi has been living up to his name the moment he stepped up to the decks. His choices in music by far reflect the fact that he has been a member of electronic dance music movement since toddler years. He takes the long route to the climactic part of a set, (or to look at it differently, its one long climax!! , SoundSex). Laying down songs with melodic hooks, and face-melting basslines, traveling from techno, to electro, to breaks, (and sometimes dub-step, which he fondly refers to as dub-SEX) he teases the crowd before making that rise to total dancefloor madness. This is a true sign of a masterful dj, and Miko has worked his way into our hearts via dance music. He has worked his dj'ing skills in clubs spanning across the states, from NY, Seattle, Vegas, Miami, Denver to LA, including Ultra Music Festival (WMC 2010 Miami), The Church (top-5 clubs in US), Beta (Beatport owned), Artisan (Las Vegas) and MEGA CLUBS Bar Standard and FUTURE LA Underground. Miko Franconi began his dj career back in 1998, spinning side beside his brother Kekoa, a legend in the music industry himself (owner/operator of Superstar Productions). When Miko and Koa teamed up, as an opening act for Keoki, back in 1998, under the name Kibbles N' Beats, the scene knew that techno music was yet to be changed with THESE Franconi brothers attacking dance floors. Music is definitely a force in this family. Miko is also the younger brother of Hawaii celebrity and radio personality Maleko.
Miko Franconi is back behind the lights and in dj booths yet again after a long hiatus to "gather his strength," and he's doing it with a vengeance, as if he knows that he has a lot to live up to, and believe me, he has "Superstar" written all over him! Having been interviewed in 808SceneZine and on over a dozen radio interviews from Hawaii to Florida, Miko has set his sights for the top, and we all have a chance to witness the rise. When you see (and feel) how naturally he makes the dancefloor move.. you too will be a believer.. the Franconi Legacy has much more in store for us.
