BLOW UP SF w/ RAC (the last Blow Up for a while)
http://www.dnalounge.com/calendar/2012/04-13.html

RAC http://youtu.be/fMdPgJWKa6c
RAC (Remix Artist Collective)’s remixes have been reinventing the art of remixing and gathering widespread acclaim since the collective’s creation in 2007. The newest expansion of the RAC family is RAC DJs, another creative teaming of André Anjos and Karl Kling. With RAC DJs, RAC takes its remix theory to the booth, altering and combining tracks on the fly, to create an engaging soundscape fed by crowd energy and live interaction.

Miles The DJ
Miles the DJ is a resident at club Popscene a and can be heard on Live 105 radio every Saturday afternoon. He also frequently hosts the station's long running electronic music program “Subsonic”, Saturday nights from midnight-3am. He's spun at just about every indie venue in SF and has shared the stage with artists like Foster the People, DJ AM, Cut Copy, DJ Shadow, RAC and countless others. April 13th will be Miles' fifth time DJing at Blow Up, and surely… it will be his best time, ever.

Harvard Bass
B Rich (Trouble & Bass / Party Like Us)
Resident DJ Jeffrey Paradise

Hosted by Ava Berlin.

Anyone who has ever watched the birth of a genre before knows that it almost always grows from the youth; the fresh perspective. Well, I'd like to present a candidate for that new sound in the form of new-comer Harvard Bass. Clocking in at a measley 21 years of age, this San Diegoan seems to have stumbled, with his first original track, on a hell of jackin' banger. If you have been through LA recently, you might recognize him as Sleazy V often seen amongst folk such as Paparazzi, Acid Girls, Johnny Love and so on. It's interesting to me that someone that has come up in the blog house scene then comes back with straight up jackin' house. I wonder if its a trend. I wonder if the pattern will persist and other young post bloghouse producers will follow suit. Regardless, this tune kills on the floor and I can't wait to see what else ol' Harvard Bass has got up his sleeve.

B Rich is one of America's purveyors of bass-heavy club music can go between house, bassline, funky, and garage all with a unifying element: huge low end frequencies. When behind the tables he shows the signs of an artist and performer who truly loves their work. His crisp production style has been shared with labels such as Ultra Records, Ministry of Sound, Scion A/V and Palms Out Sounds. Whether it's at the club or on BBC Radio 1, you can hear his tracks being played and supported by some of the heaviest selectors and tastemakers across the world.

Drop the Lime
Resident DJ Jeffrey Paradise

Hosted by Ava Berlin. Photobooth by Jonathan Saunders.

New York DJ/producer/singer Drop the Lime destroys dance floors across the country. His style blends 50s rock 'n' roll chic with the signature trouble & bass heavy sound currently defining the New York scene. Recent singles Hot as Hell and Sex Sax have shot up the dance charts, while his signature live vocals on top of his DJ sets always set a crowd a blaze.

His influences range from Brian Eno to rockabilly to Sonic Youth to Wu Tang but things don't just stop there. He finds a way to make every appearance “Hot as Hell”!
