Mark Farina
Mark Farina
Modern day record minstrel, Mark Farina, has thrilled crowds globally, entertaining over 1 million fans per year. As one of the most ubiquitous DJs in Dance Music, Farina's known for both his unique style of mixing Jazz, Downtempo and House Music as well as being the creator of Mushroom Jazz: West Coast jazzy, organic productions combined with East Coast Hip-Hop, Urban beats.
Drawing from his vibrant youth, which included being a trumpet player in marching band, a drummer in a nu wave cover band and a guest DJ, Friday nights on WNUR (Chicago), Mark found his passion for the luscious world of vinyl, turntables and nightclubs. At 16, Farina began his DJ career as a resident at Chicago's underage mecca, Medusa's. At the same time Mark joined forces with emerging DJs Derrick Carter and Chris Nazuka then moved into a loft space called Rednail.
Rednail became infamous not only for raucous parties but also as the home to the trio's first productions under the moniker, Symbols & Instruments. Their release,"MOOD," sold 35,000 copies in the US & UK and is credited as "the first ambient house track."
Farina relocated to San Francisco in 1992. Fans embraced Mark's downtempo style and he started co-hosting a weekly Mushroom Jazz club night in ʻ93. In 3 short years, Farina established a fanatical, cult-like following for his Mushroom Jazz sound and in 1996, OM Records released the first mixed comp CD, simply
titled, Mushroom Jazz. Since then, Mark has released 7 volumes of Mushroom Jazz with 2013 marking the 20th anniversary of the series. Other notable releases include OMʼs Seasons, San Francisco Sessions Vol. 1, Connect, House of Om, Live in Tokyo, and Fabric 40.
When Mark's not touring the world, headlining festivals including Harbourlife (Sydney), Southport Weekender (UK), DEMF (Detroit), Coachella (CA) and T in the Park (Scotland), you're likely to find him in his studio working on new releases or podcasts for his label, Great Lakes Audio. On days off he'll be cruising his '68 Toronado with his son, Dylan (aka "little peanut"), and his Yorkie, Pumpkin.
Voted as one of the top DJ's in the world by URB, MUZIK and BPM magazines, Mark Farina's taste making skills continue to turn the heads of seasoned Dance Music veterans as well as newcomers to the scene.
Kochi
Kochi
DJ Kochi has devoted himself to spinning house music for more than a decade. His signature sound of uplifting funky style house grooves with clean mixing and smooth transition has earned him many gigs and moved many souls on the dance floor.

Born in Bangladesh, DJ Kochi grew up listening to 70’s and 80’s pop music by tuning into BBC radio. When he moved to the States in 1991, DJ Kochi was exposed to many more styles of music. He then gained an interest in genres such as euro club, trance, techno, jungle, drum and bass, break beats, funky breaks, alternative, grunge, and, of course, house music. In the mid 90’s, DJ Kochi immersed himself in the underground electronic scene by regularly attending dance music festivals and club events. Moved by the electronic music culture, and influenced and inspired by great artists, DJ Kochi quickly gained a deep interest in DJing. In the late 90’s, in his first appearance in front of a live crowd, DJ Kochi won a DJ competition in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This opened the door for him and earned him gigs all over Virginia and in the DC area. It also gave him the opportunity to open for great talents.

Today, DJ Kochi’s music career continues to rise with appearances on radio shows and at many dance scene events. In the near future, Dj Kochi looks forward to spending more time remixing some of his favorite tracks and producing funky tunes of his own.
