SURE THING upcoming gig + new mix series
Poster by: SK
Former DECKastee and music enthusiast/DJ Aaron J established his own dance night in San Francisco late last year called, Sure Thing. The new underground endeavor picks up momentum and nears its second gig with more surprises and excitement, intending to showcase some of the most talented and forward-thinking artists in today's vast electronic music genre.
This time around on January 31st, Aaron will be treating Underground SF with a debut from Detroit's first lady DJ/producer of techno, Kelli Marie Hand aka K-Hand. For over a decade K-Hand has contributed in harnessing some of the finest techno and house to come out of Detroit's history, founding her very own label Acacia Records, in 1990. She is best known for her releases on Warp, Studio !K7, and Tresor; consistently pushing innovation and soul in all of her body-jacking productions to date. This will be K-Hand's first time playing in San Francisco alongside Don't Be Afraid member, Jack Murphy and Sure Thing curator Aaron J. If your in the area don't miss out, it will surely be one for the books. Details here.
Also :: Sure Thing recently established it's own mix series kicking it off with occasional Thats Deck contributor and L.A. sound selector, Force Placement. Combining textures and tones of deep soulful house to cosmic signaling techno, the RWD.FM radio host (Tues. 11PM-1AM PST) serves up an hour long authentic all vinyl mix. Loose yourself...
