Pryda is Coming.

 Eric Prydz is coming to America.

 Yes, you read that correctly. The most elusive man in dance music is coming back to America. Terrorized by a phobia of flying, Prydz hasn’t set foot in North America since making his 4 stop debut in 2010. Having signed on to headline the 20 city Identity Festival (which stops in Mountain View on August 17) the producer behind breakout hits “Call on Me,” “Pjanoo” and “Proper Education“ is primed to take the US market by storm. I’ve been waiting a long time to experience Pryda’s “E.P.I.C. – Eric Prydz In Concert” set and August can’t come fast enough. For a preview I’ve included a link to his live set from the BBC’s “Start of the Summer Festival” this past May. If this set does as much convincing to you as it did for me, I’ve included a link to tickets below.

OIZO's SF INVASION - 12/3/10

The illusive Mr. Oizo's music has been a staple of dance floors across the world for years. The man, however, has not. Hailing from Paris, Oizo (real name Quentin Dupleux) has been locked away working on and scoring the soundtrack to his second film Rubber. Lucky for us this all changes next month when he takes the decks at 103 Harriet. If you are into electro you cannot afford to miss this show. And tickets are only $16. Check out the live set below.

TICKETS - $16.50 - HERE

James Zabiela - MIGHTY - 11/19

Simply put James Zabiela tears it up. Meshing sounds, songs, and clips from all over the music universe into a dynamic and innovative live show, the the 31 year old from England is one of the most sought after names in dance music. Get ready San Francisco, this is a night you wont forget for a long time.

We've talked about him before and it seems to be working. On Friday night Wolfgang Gartner was given the decks of the illustrious "Essential Mix" and what followed was two hours of grime electro house. Enjoy

Halloween SF: LIVE105 Digs Deep With Killer Spookfest Lineup

The Lineup speaks for itself. Well done.

Here are my Power Rankings:

1.UNDERWORLD: The British duo that’s responsible for some of the biggest tracks in dance music are back with a new album and supporting tour. Never heard of them? Go check out their videos on Youtube playing in front of 100,000 people. Yeah, they are kinda a big deal. In a start studden lineup this is by far my #1 pull.

UNDERWORLD Live @ Priviledge -Ibiza (BBC RadioOne Essential Mix)

2. Wolfgang Gartner: He killed the Sahara mid afternoon on Friday and amazed again at EDC in June. This rising American star throws down one of the hardest sets you will ever experience.

3.MSTRKRFT: At EDC Al-P and JFK brought their signature MSTRKRFT sound and threw down a new and mysterious tracklist that covered their own originals, classic remixes, and even teased us with some unreleased samples. This set will without a doubt be the biggest party at Spookfest this year.
