Bubbles Housepitality: Moment of Silence, Alland Byallo
We are troubled by the sudden and tragic passing of our dear superstar local friend and fan Anthony Torres aka Bubbles. Aside from when he was being Bubbles in Berlin I don't think he missed a single Housepitality since we opened our doors 7 years ago. Housepitality was probably his favorite party. We are still in shock and we need to each other this Wed to observe the life of Bubbles. We are sad when we look at the picture feeds and clearly there are probably more pictures of Bubbles at Housepitality than anywhere else. Thru and thru we never closed our doors to him during his toughest moments in the rest of the scene. We appreciated his presence at Housepitality every wednesday night and we will miss him sorely. We will never forget the amazing art show he produced for us and all the wonderful moments of fun crazyness and weird that he provided us on our dancefloor, out side of our door and in the scene in general. Bubbles was our first street team promoter when we launched. Aw:(. we are sad...
SO, PLEASE join us this Wednesday for our regular scheduled show in which we will have a vigil with picture memories and such. Bring a flower or a picture to add and a moment of silence will be held at 11:30 pm sharp right before Alland Byallo's set.
Please use our regular options, free w/rsvp b4 10pm or $5 before 10pm....Ya'll know what to do. We encourage you to please come early, for the FREE BUBBLES hour anyway. We need other on this night.. This is a tough one.
MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL and much LOVE to you ANTHONY TORRES, may you rest in peace..
(HOUSEPITALITY)) JOEL CONWAY'S BIRTHDAY

lland Byallo is a DJ, producer, label owner, graphic designer and event organizer – a tour de force within the club and underground music scenes.
Born in Los Angeles, Alland began his musical journey at a young age. Trying his hand at piano and trumpet as a young boy and influenced by the experimental electronic sounds of the early 90s, Alland grew captivated with the world of dance music, began experimenting with basic production and eventually bought his first pair of turntables. While working at WAX Records, LA’s now defunct authority on dance music, Alland’s tastes matured, and a move to San Francisco in 2003 saw Alland’s star rise quickly; while in SF, Alland honed his talents DJ-ing at respected venues stateside and overseas, started his own an underground dance music label named Nightlight Music and launched one of California’s most inspired techno-focused nightclub events, the monthly [KONTROL] party.
Gaining global attention producing gems for definitive record labels such as Poker Flat, Liebe*Detail, Real Tone, and Dirt Crew, by the time he garnered four stars from influential web-based dance music magazine Resident Advisor for his original full-length album release, Brick By Brick (2009), Alland’s devotion to the techno-house sound was plain to see and his fate as one of dance music’s major talents was reasonably sealed.
At the same time, Alland’s ongoing DJ residency at San Francisco’s legendary [KONTROL] party found him sharing the stage with a roster of talent that reads like a who’s who in underground house and techno, leading to a solid demand for him at dance music gatherings around the globe – often as a headliner at renowned events and venues like Berlin’s Panoramabar, Watergate, Bar25, Cookies and Tresor, Munich’s Harry Klein, Brazil’s D-Edge, Tokyo’s La Fabrique, America’s Smartbar, Decibel and Detroit Movement Festival among many others.
Byallo’s 2010 relocation to Berlin inspired an expansion of horizons and focus not only on DJing and producing but also label management, with the launch of Bad Animal. The label has been exploring the more intimate side of dance music, cultivating productions from Alland and a close-knit group of friends. 2015 saw the release of his acclaimed sophomore full length on the highly respected Third Ear Recordings imprint. The release showed a more expressive, exprimental side of his productions, and has begun to pave the road to more daring and artistic musical exploits.
Endlessly inspired by his home away from home, Byallo continues to work hard and forge ahead with a steady musical output, adding a greater organic tone to his productions – more vocals, more experimentation, and dare it be said, a little more techno soul.
