JJ FLORES (SLEEPING GIANT MUSIC)
JJ began his career as a child producing music in the heart of Chicago where he witnessed the birth and evolution of house music. This inspiration and influence led to his first record released on Atlantic Records at the age of 17. At age 22, JJ became an integral part of the production team 20 Fingers, a team responsible for many hit records reaching both gold and platinum sales worldwide. His knowledge and experience allowed him to create remixes for some of the powerhouses in pop music, including *NSYNC, Britney Spears, and Christina Milian, and many more. From there, he went on to produce with Bad Boy Bill and eventually teamed up with Steve Smooth and established himself as house music DJ and artist.
Under the artist name JJ Flores & Steve Smooth, they released two albums titled ‘The Collection’ under Ménage Music and ‘AMP’d’ under Ultra Records. JJ soon became a household name in house music, traveling across the nation both solo and with Steve Smooth and go-go dancers, named the Bad Ass B*tches, in a tour called “DJ’s, B*tches & Debauchery.”
Pairing up with Antonio Giacca, JJ has released seven hits that all placed in the Beatport Indie Dance/Nu Disco Top 100 simultaneously.

OPENING SET GUEST DJ
SHANTO (SUNDAY SANCTUARY)
LA based techno/progressive/deep house dj & producer.
Curator of Sunday Sanctuary featuring international & local electronic music artists.
Shanto's deep-ethno-progressive musical style stems from his cultural background & past musical influences. A Lebanese Armenian born in London in the midst of a disco dance revolution, he was raised in Lebanon until his family escaped the war & permanently moved to LA, automatically immersing himself into the 80's electronic dance evolution. His love for bands like Depeche Mode, Berlin, & Yaz shaped his love for the electronic beat. Which later led to his love for the LA underground scene in the 90's, that finally cemented his search for the perfect beat. Like many, what began as a passion project quickly became an ever-consuming part of his life. After 15 years as a student of the underground with countless residencies & events, Shanto released his premiere EP "Malyans" (Beesound Recordings, Sep 2019) that charted as high as #13 on Beatport's Top 100 New Releases in both the progressive house & melodic techno charts. He is a resident for Trent Cantrelle’s infamous Sounds Like parties, & plays throughout LA, the US & internationally. Look out for many hip-shaking, mind bending, & soul grabbing originals & remixes to follow for 2020 & beyond.
