DJ Clairity (Pulse Generator)
Techno is the name of the game and these cats are the all stars!
Mark Pauley (A.K.A. Unsaturated) and Kyle Griffin (A.K.A Stridah / ACKLabs), utilizing the MIDI clock as the backbone of their sonic presentation, have heard the call of the relictual warehouse party and have a response. Antacid molds historic forms into live sequences punctuated only by the moment. Antacid welcomes our new analog overlords.
This is not a test, everything you see and hear is happening live. Come and melt your face with us.

Patrick has lived in California all his life, and it shapes his interpretation of electronic music. Raised in the 90's and 00's on psychedelic rock, jazz, electronica, indie, singer songwriter - and later on - techno and house music, he finds strains of inspiration through the music he was exposed to and has been creating since age 15. He works as a live sound and video production engineer, as well as an event producer in San Francisco; and has successfully found a way to merge his career and passion into a happy medium, that translates into his body of work.
His production technique is shaped by analog synthesizers, guitar pedals, software tricks, far-out samples, and dub techniques. His productions have appeared at the likes of Berghain/Panorama Bar, Space Club Ibiza, Fabric London, Movement Festival Detroit, Slam Radio, and other various clubs, radio shows and podcasts all over the world. He believes in simple and spacious sounds that translate into an open canvas for every DJ to interpret his own story through.
As a DJ himself, he prefers long, smooth and spacious mixing and storytelling through the slow build. He seeks the same qualities in the music he plays as he produces. Lush or dissonant, slow grooving or jacking; he tries always to find the in-between sounds that stretch out the minds of listeners and dancers. He prefers to play without a computer, and keeps the mixes smooth and tight, with bits of surprises along the way.
Claire Evans White aka DJ Clairity started her music career as a hard techno DJ in 1997 in nearby Sonoma County. After moving to San Francisco a few years later, she quickly took to the scene and became heavily involved with throwing and playing parties. Claire has performed at venues throughout San Francisco and the United States, from the corner club to the deep underground. Notable gigs include a length stay in Europe and residency at Maybe Mondays. You can currently find her on second Fridays at Underground SF's Pulse Generator, working the crowd with her minimal techno and macro beats.
