As one of the pioneers of drum n bass in the U.S., Edwin Garroknown by his fans as UFO!has established himself as one of the worlds most talented and groundbreaking artists. Producing and performing across continents for nearly two decades, UFO! is internationally renowned for his innovative style and cutting-edge music.
A San Francisco native, UFO!s musical roots trace back to the hip hop scene of the late 80s and early 90s. Mixing and scratching alongside fellow DJs QBert, Shortcut, Quest, and D-Stylz, UFO! quickly ascended to the ranks of battle DJ. Enthralled with the new urban sounds of London (hardcore, jungle and drum n bass), UFO! founded San Franciscos Phunckateck crew in 1996, performing alongside frontrunners such as Goldie, Ronnie Size, Ed Rush and Optical, Photek and Dieselboy. He released more than two dozen singles on labels such as Thermal, Position Chrome, Commercial Suicide, Green, and Phunckateck Communications. In 2001, UFO! released his first album, The Future Is Listening, on Thermal, one of the first full-length albums produced by an American drum n bass artist.
A move to New York City in 2000 brought UFO! a plethora of new opportunities. While doing remixes for Trouble & Bass, UFO! scored scenes in the hit television series, CSI: NY from 2005-2006. An unstoppable force, UFO! also dived into the art world and landed a job at New Yorks MoMA PS1, displaying and arranging art installations in the museums world renowned galleries.
Determined to reconnect with his cultural roots, UFO! left the country in 2009 to live in Costa Rica, where he collaborated with prodigy drummer Federico Gmez (.sn!ka.). Together, the two formed the duo Cosmetics, and were immediately signed by international labels such as Filthy Digital (Denver), Bassism (SF), Forecast (Hungary) and Subdepth (UK).
Finally, in 2009, after a decade-long journey around the world, UFO! made his return to San Francisco, the place it all started. Currently represented by labels Frite Nite, Badman Press, Brap Dem, and Hot N Heavy,and Subhuman. UFO! continues to edge forward faster and harder than ever. With several upcoming releases coming out on Frite Nite, Sex Cult, Sub Depth, Herd Killing, Mallabel, Subhuman and EL CUCO (MOMBATONE)..UFO! proves relentlessly to be a force to be reckoned with.
◣ MEAN CHAVeeN (www.soundcloud.com/chaveen, www.facebook.com/mean.chaveen, SF))◢
San Francisco native MEAN CHAVeeN made his first appearance as a DJ in the rave scene of the late 90s and early 2000s playing various subgenres of house music at underground parties and annual massives. During this period CHAVeeN was involved in the production of huge parties with head counts exceeding 2,500 people. Between 2000 and 2003 CHAVeeN played consistently at undergrounds, after which a growing interest in sound design pushed him to enroll full-time in a sound engineering program and dabbled in electronics.
Now a trained sound designer and seasoned DJ CHAVeeN strives to perfect the art of electronic music. With no bounds but those of the acoustic and electronic domain, CHAVeeN’s “musical experiments” often cross or redefine genres. His DJ sets commonly work through various styles of house music and electro with peak hour sets utilizing breakbeats and dubstep.
CHAVeeN is currently working on an electro house album with original tracks ranging from swinging salsa, to hard-hitting anthems, to funky robotic-sounding electro, to peak-hour dubstep with electro basslines and much more variety in between.
