About this show:

Filter SF Feat. Fumiya Tanaka (Torema/Op.Disc/Tresor) - an all night dance party at Fat City.

Opening DJ sets by:

Saya (Tokyo, Japan)
Luis Rosario (Compression LA)
Kontakt (BABD/Montreal)
Solekandi (BABD)

He's been called the Japanese answer to Jeff Mills for his dizzying
array of production work and 3 deck performances. His always-evolving style is marked with an unprecedented crispness, showcasing a sound that goes beyond minimal techno.

"Op.disc's marriage of shape-shifting, tribal-funk beats with deep dub textures offers an endless source of pleasure" - Textura.

Catch him at Filter SF (@ Fat City) in his FIRST EVER U.S. appearance.

This is hot!


An update to the show:

We've changed the venue to Fat City (formerly Studio Z) on 11th and Folsom to accomodate the anticipated demand and our sound requirements.

The venue has a raw warehouse feeling with brick interior and loft style mezzanine yet with all the trimings of a full scale club .

We will have a full scale interactive lighting system with a VJ and a sound system that is reputed to be second to best in SF.

In short, we're excited to be in downtown SF to make this event more accessible to more techno fans.


You went with the Z - excellent :-)
I figured it was a good choice having the acoustics of a live music venue - have a feeling this show's going to rock and that Solekandi will be the new voice of minimal in SF! Go Solekandi!!! :D


Update - This party goes till 8:00 AM in a killer venue with phenomenal sound. Get ready....


Hey solekandi, would you remind removing 'ALL NIGHT DANCE EVENT' from the title? It makes it look like you're shouting, and I was confused this morning because the title changed so dramatically. :)
