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.
