★ JESSE BROOKS (Om, Imperial Dub, Yoshioshi, Large, Fresh Produce | Los Angeles)
Joining us from LA for an exclusive East Coast visit, producer and DJ Jesse Brooks _gets_ it. He and his Fresh Produce crew have been at the heart and soul of LA's dance community for over 20 years, and his critically acclaimed releases have found their way to some of dance music's most respected labels, including Om Records, Imperial Dub, Yoshioshi, Large, Seasons, Dutchie Music, City Deep, and Offset. He knows that house music isn't just 4-on-the-floor, its a state of mind - the beat, the bass, the love, and the family of music lovers that call house music home. We can't tell you how excited we are to introduce him to our Disorient family here in New York!! Check out some of his sounds at http://jessebrooks.com
★ FRIAR TUCK (Disorient | Brooklyn)
A true product of the underground, Friar Tuck has a love of all things funky, quirky, and innovative. From Baltimore warehouses to LA deserts and now the New York Burning Man scene, Tuck is a dancer's DJ – always feeling and feeding off the energy, but never pandering. Creative and masterful, blending tracks with vastly different rhythmic structures to create uniquely catchy, intricate patterns, warming to the mood of a room like sunshine. Get lost in the deep beats and layered grooves, say your prayers, and get ready for something different! http://thegoodfriar.com
★ COYOTI (Freeform/Disorient/PEX | Philly/NYC)
A heart of gold, an eye for mischief, and an ear for the groove. He's passionate and funky, and has been blowing up parties on the east coast, from the Freeform Festival to PEX Summerfest and Voyage to the Moon. We can't wait to hear him rip up the dancefloor, in a prime time set in front of the singing hearts filling the Warsaw! (http://thecoyote.podomatic.com)
