Hoj is a weird name. It's just 3 letters, but only 3% of people in the world pronounce it correctly. It doesn't translate well (especially into Spanish). And is often misspelled. The mischief caused by these 3 little letters is a constant source of amusement for Hoj and those closest to him.

Don't worry, we'll tell you how to pronounce "Hoj" correctly. That way if you ever meet Hoj, you can surprise him by pronouncing his name correctly. But we'll hold out a bit longer for dramatic effect.

So yes, lots of mischief caused by the 3 letters that are his name. Fitting, because Hoj sets out to create mischief in all his creative endeavors. His music is deep and sexy in a way that encourages crowds to create a little mischief of their own.

This sound earned him a night at Berlin's legendary Panorama Bar amongst a slew of other clubs and stages around the world. He was one of the founding members of the Opulent Temple at Burning Man, and in recent years his sets atop the Robot Heart bus have become legendary in their own right. He continues his musical escapades alongside Lee Burridge as a resident for All Day I Dream. And also enjoys a residency with Listed Productions.

He is currently based in Los Angeles. And you pronounce his name with a long "O" - like the "O" in "NO". And a soft "J" - like the "G" in "MIRAGE". The "H" is not silent.

Son of Palestinian parents and Brazilian-born, Adnan Sharif immigrated to the USA in 1987 and found himself right at home in his new city, San Francisco. His DJ career started in 1995, playing his first gig with, "The Gathering," a legendary series of parties held in the San Francisco Bay Area. His musical styles include all genres of house music, ranging from deep to tech to minimal. Presently, Adnan Sharif is the resident DJ and promoter of Forward SF, a monthly event hosted in underground locations and clubs in SF.

Adnans Forward SF nights have blossomed with the reputation for creating warm, inclusive and soulful vibes that unite our people and celebrate diversity. His parties are known for their large-scale rollout of solid, consistently infectious vibes that cause an involuntary surrender to the dancing and love so embedded in the San Francisco makeup.

Working with other successful groups like Brazils D-Edge, San Franciscos listed, Seattles Uniting Souls and Tropical LA has helped Adnan spread the love evident in his events and in his sound, while also releasing work on labels such as: Smoke N Mirrors, Uniting Souls Music, Release Sustain, Rezongar Music, Area Sur Records, Temple Music Group, Tarantic Records and Jah Love Recordings.

He has shared the turntables with incredible DJs, encompassing talents like: Dixon, Pezzner, Abe Duque, Tanner Ross, Droog, Justin Martin, Claude VonStroke, Hot Chip, Doc Martin, Jay TripWire, Terry Francis, Grant Dell, Mark Farina, Renato Ratier, Renato Lopez, Mau Mau, Luis Nieva, Miguel Silver, Jeno, Garth, Solar, Galen, Jbird and Lance Desardi.

He has played at internationally renowned parties, including standout
locations like: D-Edge, Warung, Cozumel Club and World Social Forum (all in Brazil), ComeUnity, The Gathering and Sunset parties, as well as the Bulletproof Boat Party and Power to the Peaceful Festival (all in San Francisco), Beijing (China), Red Noise (Venezuela) and the ACA World Sound Festival (Acapulco, Mexico).

In late 2000 Adnan Sharif began his journey into music production
