About DJ Amber:
DJ Amber has been passionately mixing and creating music since 1997, including thousands of appearances in San Francisco and around the world. As a music producer, her original tracks have been widely released, including four releases on her own label, iamthedj Recordings. Amber's most recent remix release, ”Wonder (DJ Amber’s WonderPlay Remix)”, is available on the Karmacoda compilation CD LUX LIFE: Illuminated Remixes.

Amber co-founded NorCal DJ and Music Production Academy in San Francisco, and has been a recurring guest lecturer for the UCLA Graduate School of Musicology course on “The History of Electronic Music”. From 2002 - 2003 San Francisco Bay Area locals watched Amber on television as Host of :CODE, a nightlife and electronic music television show. She has also been a featured speaker at the Remix Magazine conference, Remix Hotel. Amber has also been featured in two documentary films, “Generation E” and “Vinyl is a Girl's Best Friend”, and has has served as a resource for the non-fiction book ”The Complete History of American Music” and the fictional DJ tale ”Couch World”.

She also remains active in the underground scene appearing at warehouse parties and renegade events around the Bay Area.

About Alixir:
Born and raised on the East Coast, Alex, aka Alixr is driven by an obsession with music. A self-taught guitarist and student of music theory, his early influences ranged in genre from psychedelic rock and jazz, to disco, grunge and heavy metal. After relocating to San Francisco in 1995 with a handful of cash and a head full of dreams, his fate would be sealed when a growing interest in electronic dance music lured him into the local underground rave scene.

By 2005, after a decade of heavy involvement taking him through the ranks from dancefloor enthusiast to organizer and promoter, he could no longer deny his inner DJ. Years of insightful observation combined with his background in music theory made him a quick study, and the following year saw Alixr land debut gigs at major events such as San Francisco's annual How Weird Street Faire and Moontribe's legendary full moon gatherings in the deserts near LA.

These days he continues to rock dancefloors all over California with his signature blend of funked-up tech house and banging techno. Alixr has performed alongside the likes of Sandra Collins, Doc Martin, Gavin Hardkiss, Christian Martin and Lee Coombs, to name a few. He's also made guest DJ appearances on Stanford University's KZSU FM, and thrown down at many of San Francisco's top nightclubs including Mighty, Temple, 1015, Paradise Lounge and Shine.

AND FOR NEXT WEEK!
