█ SOUNDPIECES — For over 13 years, Soundpieces has been a consistent staple of diverse and forward thinking electronic music in San Francisco and across the globe. Responsible for countless Bay Area debuts such as Skepta, Shlohmo, Mount Kimbie, Hudson Mohawke, and Nicola Cruz, Soundpieces has become a powerful ambassador of international music in California. But our work doesn't stop in the Bay Area, we have helped book festivals such as Symbiosis Gathering, and produced one-offs in New York, Detroit, SXSW Austin, Outlook Croatia, throughout Asia, and beyond. Valuing quality over any specific genre or style, Soundpieces continues to be the quality plug for fresh, exciting musical styles showcased in the most sophisticated and underground atmospheres. With our rotating roster of new talent and heavyweight artists, along with the longest running bass music weekly in San Francisco, we have built a legacy as one of the West Coast’s greatest resources to experience underground electronic music.
█ THE VOID Acoustics Soundsystem
We are honored to be able to showcase Soundpieces on Monarch's custom horn-loaded Void Acoustics Sound System, the only one of its kind on the West Coast!!! When you descend to the club's dance floor you are immersed in a world of complete euphony generated by the venue's four protruding tuba-like enclosures. Without a dead spot in the room, it's easily the best place in the city to hear the biggest sound.
