Smoke N’ Mirrors is on a roll this month bringing the best talent in tech-house and nu-disco to San Francisco and Miami.
Starting with San Francisco on Saturday, March 16th, the Smoke N’ Mirrors residency at Monarch continues, backed by grooves from UK’s rising Maxxi Soundsystem. Maxxi initially came to the public eye with his edit of “Criticize,” getting charted by renowned selectors such as Jacques Renault and Permanent Vacation. Since 2011, he has released a handful of promising EPs, including his recent 4/5 Resident Advisor rated Regrets We Have No Use For single on Hypercolour. Keep an eye out for his remix of Smoke N’ Mirrors resident Shiny Objects’s forthcoming single Higher Ground and catch him this weekend with support from Lance DeSardi, Shiny Objects, and Bachelors of Science’s new house alias Sleight of Hands.
Next week, in San Francisco (again!) on March 22nd, Smoke N’ Mirrors returns to Monarch in collaboration with Lights Down Low to bring disco edit flavor makers, Tiger & Woods. Tiger & Woods have been an SF favorite for a minute now, bringing out heads from all edges of the San Francisco house scene to parties put on by fellow tech-house purveyors As You Like It. Support comes from locals M3, Lights Down Low’s Sleazemore, and Shiny Objects.
Lastly, if you happen to be in Miami for WMC/Ultra, you’ll be pleased to know that Smoke N’ Mirrors has teamed up with The Electric Pickle and Red Bull Music Academy to put together a heavily stacked line up for Inside/Out, including exclusive sets from DJ Harvey, Osunlade, along with a slew of other performances from SNM artists, such as Maxxi Soundsystem, Edit Murphy, Death on the Balcony, Shiny Objects, along with friends, Jacques Renault, PBS Streetgang, PillowTalk, and more. Needless to say, this party goes on into the wee hours of the morning.
Plan to get there early, and you can get a limited discount presale for $15 on Resident Advisor HERE!!!
DJ/Producer J Boogie has been a key player at Om Records for many, many moons now. This moombah mastermind truly embodies the variety that SF nightlife has to offer; his DJ mixes blend a range of tracks that cover hip-hop, reggae, afro-beat, disco, electro, and house. As a producer, he has been releasing music since the 90s, both solo and as J Boogie’s Dubtronic Science—a project he embarked on with a live band, including a horn section, percussionist, and MCs.
This year, Boogie started monthly club-night at Monarch to sate SF party peoples’ need for a more multi-faceted musical experience: Night Moves unites veteran San Francisco house music vibes with emerging sounds of modern funk, nu-disco and moombahsoul. Imagine classic Chicago Trax blended with the current Disco Boogie revival. Podcasts, edits, and club nights will be curated in an effort to break the boundaries in San Francisco’s dance music scene.
Next week, on Saturday, November 3, Night Moves brings out Moon Boots to grace the decks and heat up the Void sound system. Be prepared for a cosmic journey of disco and R&B led by this mysterious producer, along with support from Deejay Theory, Papa Lu & The Whooligan, and, of course, J Boogie himself. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at Resident Advisor [here]
Until then, check out J. Boogie’s latest mix for DJ Mag. Glittering with Latin percussion, funky synths, and a heaping dose of chunky basslines, this soulful mix will be just what you need to get in the mood for Night Moves.
