The Great Northern, San Francisco’s hidden gem for electronic music, has announced its May line ups and continues to impress, as KMLN (live), Oceanvs Orientalis, John Monkman, Clarian, Amine K, Guy J B2B Nick Warren, Rodriguez Jr (live), Sam Gellaitry, A Club Called Rhonda, Eats Everything, Butch, Audiojack and Brett Johnson all step up to The Great Northern stage across another month of exquisitely curated events. This follows April’s events which underlined The Great Northern’s versatile music policy and uncompromising approach, with artists including Âme, Adriatique, Dusky, Project Pablo, Kill Paris, and Beautiful Swimmers, pleasing the knowledgeable San Fran crowds who have been steadily making The Great Northern their second home. Expect another full dancefloor for the May line ups. Tickets for all events are available from: www.thegreatnorthernsf.com.
It’s no surprise that The Great Northern is being discovered by the international electronic music community. Created by four doyens of San Fran nightlife and admitted ‘old school ravers’, it has evolved over two years into a world-class clubbing experience with cutting edge production, stunning future deco design (with 30 ft ceilings), aerialists, custom LEDs, projection-mapping and incredible 80,000 watt custom-built VOID Acoustic soundsystem. Its inclusive, underground atmosphere has attracted DJs of the highest calibre such as Honey Dijon, ANNA, Dixon, Peggy Gou, Gerd Janson, Floorplan, Tale Of Us and many more, yet it still delivers one of San Francisco’s biggest clubbing spaces with 700 capacity.
May kicks off in style on Friday 3rd with international shapeshifting duo, KMLN (Kameleon). Italian producer / multi-instrumentalist, Christopher Tooker and Canadian DJ / producer, Shawna Hofmann blend live instrumentation with elements of deep tribal house and minimal techno. With releases on Crosstown Rebels and Sol Selectas, these festival favourites will create an unmissable vibe. Oceanvs Orientalis steps up in support to deliver his unique eastern take on electronica.
On May 4th SET presents two regulars on the mighty Anjunadeep label, John Monkman and Clarian. John Monkman, also known for his work on Sasha’s ‘Last Night On Earth’ and a series of killer collars with Pete Tong, is in demand around the world from Warung in Brazil, to Ushuaia in Ibiza, so is sure to give the San Fran electronica aficionados something to smile about. Clarian has also released on such influential labels as Kompakt, Visionquest, Hot Creations and Life & Death. Expect the dancefloor to erupt when he drops his unique brand of synth-laden techno. Morocco’s leading producer, Amine K will also step up with his progressive sounds to show why Oasis Festival has made him resident DJ.
Two legends, Guy J and Nick Warren go B2B on the coveted The Great Northern turntables on May 10th – a surefire sellout. Lost & Found label boss Guy J has carved an unrivalled reputation for his eclectic disregard of boundaries in electronic music and his hypnotic trips through the spectrum of house when he mixes. Nick Warren remains a bonafide superstar DJ – mixing multiple Global Underground compilations, one half of Way Out West, Cream resident, and now the man behind global label and events brand The Soundgarden – the list goes on. Guy J B2B Nick Warren is simply unmissable. Not to be outmatched, Mobilee fave, Rodriguez Jr lines up to show what he can do.
