Q.R.S. present Animal Bottoms welcoming special guest Mike Frugaletti!
Here we are again...hard to believe it’s been 6 months since our inception. This month we present to you the one and only Mike Frugaletti. This Bay Area native found his way to house music through dance. Spinning the summer days and cool crisp nights round and round with a smooth 6-step, he’d pause the inertia with a tight freeze only to pop back into a flare and now the party’s roaring. It’s real, and so is the vetted community of friends and family he invites to the ceremony. We’re pumped.
And here it is. Mike invites our new animal totem, the Puma! Descending from rocky mountain crags she crouches, patiently surveying the remote environ…. Meanwhile all us cubs are playing together up the hill, oblivious to her dedication to nurture our bellies and our spirit... Ripping through the vast wilderness, out for that precious vital prize...she returns and we dine like kings and queens-- on April 15th. Whatever, get your bad selves out here. We’ll dance, and share this incredible life we’re building together. Much love, looking forward to seeing y’all there.
Bay area native Mike Frugaletti was brought up in a life of music on the other side of the decks as a b-boy and spectator. Witnessing countless sets from prominent DJs such as Derrick Carter, Doc Martin and the Wicked Crew his passion for music and led him to a meteoric rise in the bay area as a DJ and producer. Over the years he cultivated many relationships and held down residencies at the infamous Kit Kat parties held at the SF staple The Endup and DHP (Deep house project) events which occurred all over the bay area.
