Fri 4/17: Surface Tension.008 | ORPHX (LIVE) and SUTURES (LIVE)

Surface Tension.008 featuring: Orphx (Sonic Groove, Hands | Toronto) LIVE One of the most highly respected acts in both techno and industrial circles, Orphx have been developing their signature fusion of hypnotic rhythms and experimental noise for the past twenty years. Using modular and analog synthesizers, software, location recordings and feedback circuits, Rich Oddie and Christina Sealey draw upon the darker, psychedelic fringes of electronic dance music and combine these elements with the experimental aesthetics and themes of early industrial music. Orphx has gained an international following as one of the pioneering acts within the European ‘rhythmic noise’ scene and more recently came to the attention of techno fans through a series of acclaimed 12"s on Adam X’s Sonic Groove label, along with standout remixes for artists like Conrad Schnitzler, Perc, Oscar Mulero and Svreca. Oddie and Sealey have performed throughout Europe and North America at celebrated venues like Berghain and Tresor as well as notable electronic music festivals such as Movement and Mutek. Their live appearances are renowned for delivering improvised performances that combine software with modular synthesizer and other hardware. Orphx have released numerous albums and singles on vinyl, CD and cassette that have had a significant influence on many artists in the present wave of industrial techno. Building on a sprawling back catalogue that stretches across the divisions between industrial, ambient and techno, their recent output has demonstrated that Orphx are both pioneers and innovators in the fusion of rhythm and noise. Sutures (Ascetic House | San Francisco/Baltimore) LIVE Sutures are a duo comprised of Nihar Bhatt (San Francisco) and Alex Bennett (Baltimore), who craft murky, emotive techno with a post-punk/wave underpinning. Their debut album is forthcoming as a cassette on Arizona's Ascetic House. Surface Tension DJs: Jason Polastri Justin Anastasi Nihar Bhatt Damon Way Chris Zaldua Tickets: $10 (limited), $15 (limited), $20 (general)

Wed 4/22: HOUSEPITALITY feat. SOLAR (bday set!), TYREL WILLIAMS & MIKE BEE

( ( ( HOUSEPITALITY ) ) ) proudly welcomes a man who needs no introduction in the SF Bay Area, a magician behind the decks, an institution in late night (and Sunset) magic: ::SOLAR (Sunset Soundsystem | SF):: Opening set by: ::TYREL WILLIAMS (Housepitality, SS Records | SF/CHI):: Lounge takeover by: ::MIKE BEE (Vinyl Dreams, Housepitality | SF):: For most of our regular fans, there’s not much we have to say about Solar. He’s a founding member and spiritual leader of the Sunset Soundsystem parties, which began here in the bay area and now have reached as far away as Croatia. He’s an immensely talented local favorite whose talent is finally being recognized across the globe after his tour opening for world phenom Dixon. He’s a crate digger whose ability to find the best records is held in awe by many of the best DJs in the bay area. He’s… also a super amazing guy who we count as a dear friend and trusted colleague in this business of nightlife. (It’s also his birthday… so come deliver some bday spankings!) Opening up the night, our own vinyl maven, Solar’s friend and housemate, and fellow longhair Tyrel Williams. You probably know who he is by now too, so I’ll keep it short and say that no one should ever miss a Tyrel set; never. In the back, but certainly not least, our Groove Lounge specialist and fine CHUG purveyor, DJ MIKE BEE, who also happens to own the best dance music vinyl record shop in town aka VINYL DREAMS. Go buy some records from him in Lower Haight sometime… you won’t regret it. Also come out and dance in the back room at the Housepit. Anyway, that’s a HELL of a local lineup, if we do say so ourselves.

To be a DJ in this time and place meant having a fierce dedication to the craft of creating electrifying music for people to dance all night. A deep record collection and bold creativity were what people valued in the Djs they would go hear every weekend. In 1994, Solar and a couple other Djs began bringing a sound system and a generator to the Berkeley Marina for free gatherings to dance and watch the sun set behind the San Francisco skyline. As these Sunset parties grew from dozens to hundreds, and now thousands of attendees, Solar become one San Francisco's best loved DJs. Known for his eclectic sets, blending Techno, Disco, House, Electro and electronic music with the energy of Punk and Psychedelic Rock, Solar has built a loyal following among a discerning crowd of dancers and party goers used to hearing every touring DJ you've ever heard of. Nearly twenty years of playing music for crowds large and small has evolved a style of Djing that seamlessly fuses the best of classic and modern dance music. More recently as resident and co-creator of the No Way Back parties, Solar has earned the reputation of a DJ devoted to the art of mixing and selecting music without regard to ephemeral fashion, trends or fads. https://www.facebook.com/solar.langevin http://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/solar https://soundcloud.com/solarsf /////////////// Tyrel Williams Tyrel has been a mainstay of Chicago’s underground House scene for years. He began mixing records in 1999. Soon later he landed a job at Gramaphone Records where he spent many years building his collection of dance records. He spent 2008-2011 building his Acid Test residency at Smart Bar, which is an all vinyl House / Techno party. Guests have included Derrick Carter, Traxx, Justin Long, Convextion, Dave Aju, and Tevo Howard. Tyrel has recently moved to San Francisco where he is a resident DJ for Housepitality. He has also recently started a project with Bryan Bai-ee called Secret Studio with releases on their own label called SS Records. http://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/tyrelwilliams https://soundcloud.com/tyrelwilliams ////////////// MIKE BEE Mike has been a pro DJ for going on 20 years.

Wed 4/29: HOUSEPITALITY feat. MARK FARINA!!! FIL LATORRE, SHARON BUCK, JOEL CONWAY

( ((HOUSEPITALITY)) ) With out any further ado... ::MARK FARINA:: (Great Lakes Audio, Mushroom Jazz | SF) ::FIL LATORRE & SHARON BUCK:: (Housepitality | SF) Lounge destruction by: ::JOEL CONWAY:: (Housepitality | SF) This night pretty much explains itself.... Mark Farina finally comes to Housepitality:) We GOT U! **It's also Nikkole Rathkamp's bday jam!!! The details: This show is $10 all night... (this is only the second time we've done this.. the last time was for Mark's best friend Derrick Carter:)) FREE champagne from 9pm-10pm $5 Jameson (with mention of Housepitality discount) Streaming LIVE at http://housepitalitylive.com/ ////// MARK FARINA Since 1989, Mark Farina has been traveling the globe performing at literally hundreds of shows a year, sometimes DJing both of his preferred styles in two different rooms at the same party. At other events, he's been known to play extended sets that lasted over eight hours. In his House sets, Mark is known for his uniquely effortless journeys on the jazzy side of Chicago House, mixed up San Fran style. "I look at my job as a modern day traveling minstrel, to bring new music to as many places as I can, and expose obscure records that, otherwise, might go hidden." While Mark Farina may be able to sum up his job description in a sentence, there is much more to be written. Mark developed his musical tastes in Chicago - listening to house music on the radio, living in one of the country's most primordial breeding grounds for house. Around '88, while record shopping at Imports, Etc., he met Derrick Carter and a friendship began. "I just ended up there between classes, I ended up buying his picks. He steered me toward the cutting edge House producers of the time." "I started playing when I lived with my parents and didn't have any bills to pay so I could just buy records. My intentions were never to just make money, it's nice, but it's kind of turned into a job by accident - it was a hobby that turned into a job." Living together and working on tracks together along with Chris Nazuka, they utilized the tight connections between the Detroit and Chicago scenes. Fondly, Mark remembers hanging out listening to Detroit Techno classics - Model 500, Derrick May - eating bologne sandwiches on white bread and drinking Kool-Aid out of a paper cup, prepared by none other than Chef Saunderson himself. In '89, they signed on Kevin Saunderson's KMS Records under the Symbols in Instruments moniker and produced a landmark track called "Mood". "Mood" sold 35,000+ copies in the US and the UK. This record was the first ambient house track ever made and, accordingly, it has taken its position as a classic. The same year, The Face magazine published their year end Top 50 with "Mood" ranking above pop anthems by Dee-Lite and The Pet Shop Boys. "I used to do mixes with Derrick on the radio at Northwestern, we'd make it at the house and listen to it on the lake where they filmed 'Risky Business'. We would drive around and listen 89.3 WNUR; they had a policy, guest DJs didn't have to be students." Eventually, the University changed their policy and only students were allowed to DJ. When Farina first started wandering from his passion for the purist forms of House into what grew into one of his trademark styles, Mushroom Jazz, he was playing the main room in a club in Chicago and got demoted to the B-room after playing too many Martin Luther King Jr. samples. Mark experimented with a deeper style, dropping De La Soul, disco classics and other stuff that wasn't being played in the main room. However, in 1992, Mark found a welcome place for his collection of downtempo tunes accompanied by a small run of mix tapes entitled "Mushroom Jazz". Originally launched as a cassette series, the Mushroom Jazz tapes grew from the first Chicago run of 50 copies each…on to the next stage, where 500 copies of several volumes were easily distributed and sought after. As the Acid Jazz boom began, he perfected his sound and fused the newest tracks from the West Coast's jazzy, organic producers with the more urban sounds he had championed in Chicago. While the predominant musical force in SF was still dark, dubby House and Wicked-style Breaks, the city embraced the downtempo movement with a healthy bunch of live bands and DJs generating the tunes. Mark Farina, along with partner, and manager, Patty Ryan-Smith, created the now legendary weekly club in San Francisco, Mushroom Jazz, in 1992. Every Monday night the crowd slowly germinated - from 100 for the first few months to 600-700 two years later. As time passed, Farina and Patty put their energies into another project, the first Mushroom Jazz interactive CD-ROM for Om Records. After a three year run, where the club had established a fanatical, cult-like following for Farina and the Mushroom Jazz sound, the club closed its doors and transformed into a CD series and accompanying tours. Since 1989, Mark Farina has been traveling the globe performing at literally hundreds of shows a year, sometimes DJing both of his preferred styles in two different rooms at the same party. At other events, he's been known to play extended sets that lasted over eight hours. In his House sets, Mark is known for his uniquely effortless journeys on the jazzy side of Chicago House, mixed up San Fran style. This wandering record minstrel has played to incredible crowds all over the globe. Consistently drawing new fans to his style of chunky-funky rhythms and deep underground house, Mark plays upwards of 200 shows to over one million (1,000,000) club goers per year. Voted in the top 20 DJ's in the world by MUZIK and BPM Magazine, his taste making skills continue to turn the heads of seasoned veterans as well as youngsters just getting into the music. On CD, Mark has recorded both of his dominant musical personalities. His first mix, 'Mushroom Jazz' on Om Records, is defined by a hip-hop sub-groove with jazzy, dubby elements in the downtempo range. It was followed by 'Seasons', a critically acclaimed House mix. An Imperial Dub mixed CD, a guest slot in the pedigreed 'United DJs of America' series, 'Mushroom Jazz 2' (Om Records) and 'San Francisco Sessions, Vol. I' (Om Records) and Mushroom Jazz 3 (Om Records) to round out the Farina catalog. His past release "Connect" walks the line of San Francisco deeper and the bumpin' funky house sound of Chicago. Now, in November of 2002, Mark Farina releases his much beloved fourth volume of Mushroom Jazz. https://soundcloud.com/djmarkfarina ////// Enjoy handcrafted cocktails by our very own groove lounge mixologist.
