SCHNEIDER -There are DJs, and then there are “DJ’s DJs”—the influential jocks who break tunes, unearth obscure must-haves, spark off new trends, and breathe new life into the artform at every opportunity. Marc Schneider has been the embodiment of the latter for over two decades. The Hamburg native began amassing his personal collection of DJ weapons amid the heyday of ‘90s German raves, with his early appearances feeding the folklore of legendary parties such as Love Parade and the original Tresor club.
As the longtime gatekeeper for music distributor Word and Sound, he has overseen virtually every worthwhile piece of vinyl to enter the country. He continues to apply his tastemaker status and veteran knowledge in the DJ booth through regular invitations to Panorama Bar (Berlin), Fabric (London), Eleven (Tokyo), Rex Club (Paris), The Bunker (NYC), Bassani (Tbisili), Smart Bar (Chicago), Culture Box (Copenhagen), Watergate (Berlin), Electric Pickle (Miami). That’s not to mention his long-running affiliation with Hamburg’s PAL and the Golden Pudel Club, as well as the infamous annual event Fusion Festival.
With his sporadic yet highly-valued releases and remixes for labels like Circus Company, Silver Network, New Kanada and Word and Sound’s inhouse imprint Was Not Was, Marc has endeared himself to record-buying heads over a number of years. Similarly, it was little surprise for those in the know to learn that Marc had been secretly at the helm of the formerly anonymous cult label Story, the unassuming vinyl-only imprint of quality deep cuts that has boasted the likes of Anton Zap, Cottam and XDB on its roster since 2008.
Technique can be refined, and skill can be learned, but impeccable taste is rare and elusive. That’s why Marc Schneider is your favouíte DJ’s favourite DJ.
GARDNER- Max Gardner is a DJ, producer and cofounder of the Direct to Earth (DTE) crew which burst onto the scene in 2011 throwing bangin’ parties that quickly gained a cult following among the techno heads of the San Francisco and East Bay underground. DJing nights since 2007, Max's experience has given him a real physical sense for what’s going on just beyond the decks and he's careful to ensure that every track thrown down is more of a communication than a dictation to his audiences. While, as a producer, Max has earned his credit as an artist and remixer for several labels such as Coal Recs, Dark and Sonorous, and Emote, pushing a sound that is a devastating combination of dark, hypnotic, funky, artful and jackin’.
RUIZ -Renowned local San Francisco underground Downbeat & House Music Dj, with a hearty appetite for championing obscure left field electronic music into his unique sets. Former employee of Amoeba Music, Tweekin' Records, In-House Records, Primal Records & TRC Distribution. These were all staples of the San Francisco community that allowed him to gain a vast knowledge of musical history. You can currently find Ivan up & down the Bay Area delivering his unique brew of thumpin' Downbeat & House Music grooves.
