Prox.im.i.ty: n808, Matt Main, Brendan Finlayson
PROX.IM.I.TY CREW is back with our bimonthly @ UnderGround SF!!
To open up the NEW YEAR at Proximity SF we invite n808!!!!
Dirtybird ~ Admit One
Nate Figueroa, better known as n808, is no stranger to the San Francisco house scene. With his dashing mustache and light-hearted personality, it’s easy to understand why it’s always a pleasure running into him while at shows in the city.
You may recognize n808's name as his track "Robot Butts" was featured on this year’s Dirtybird Campout West Compilation and played out by artists like Claude VonStroke and Justin Martin. Better yet, if you were at the silent disco on the last night of Dirtybird Campout West this year, you would have seen a sea of red headphones shaking their tail feathers to his beats.
As a local favorite and co-founder of San Francisco’s Admit One Records, n808 has garnered the attention of many with his unique beat progression and sample selection which is why it’s not a surprise that he has seen support across many channels.
Raised in the outer badlands of Chicago and upon his migration to the home of House Music was educated in the boompty-bass school of hard knocks, forming him into the funk-doc, soul controller of the dance-floor that he is today. From in the cut is where he launches his schemes for dance-floor obliteration and only in the moment of truth will you ever really see Matt Main lose his cool as it is poured through the speakers and into your body. Time and place has no bearing on his agenda as his singular purpose at the controls is to funk you, bang you and bounce you with an eclectic range of techno and house tracks.
Matt Main not only hatches his plans for the dance-floor from behind the decks but also from behind the scenes as a key component of the No Affiliation parties that helped set the highest standards for underground events in Chicago. His time running boards and doing production for some of Chicago’s largest festivals and events has allowed him to bring a level of technical proficiency to his own events and mix. Whether at work or play Matt Main’s life is shrouded in perfecting the organized noise that is so often bringing people to various states of sweaty elation.
Currently residing in Oakland, Matt has shifted his focus to the studio since his migration out west in 2015. Still a relatively unknown entity in the Bay Area it’s only a matter of time before the word is out and his new home can embrace his renegade sound.
