***** Morgan Farrand ******
British Columbia native, Morgan Farrand was involved with some of the earliest BC Festivals including Summer Love. It was there that he began his affection for House Music and in the early 2000s he made a name for himself in Northern California spinning Progressive and Deep House. His style was formed by a mixture of dirty electro sounds coupled with jazzy horn and sax ensembles and with a two year stint in Southern California he added a lighter smoother sound to his repertoire, while still staying true to his electronic roots.
In 2005 he relocated to the bay Area and although he held a residency at an SF wine bar he found himself digging the dirty breakbeats that were big in the Bay Area at the time. From 2008 on, aside from a few mini tours to Tahoe and Mammoth, a long battle with Illness took him out of the game for a number of years. Now he has landed in the PDX and is back on the scene with a well-rounded style of House, Breaks, Ghetto Funk and Downtempo.
From the Black Rock Desert and Lake Tahoe Underground to the Beaches and Clubs of SB to the SF Underground, Morgan has played alongside the like of Rick Preston, Cosmic Selector, Q Burns, Lourob, Micah J (AKA DJ Switch), DJ Jamar, and many other DJ and live acts over the last 15 years.
***** The Funkdealer ******
Arriving to planet earth almost 40 years ago from a galaxy so funky most humans can't even imagine, The Funkdealer (Jason Arthurs) started off as a jazz drummer in early high school and on… but slowly morphed into the world of the dj, as the funk started ruling his life more and more he began to embrace all genres and modes of music creation, always sourcing the top cuts of funk in any given genre of music, blending funk, hiphop, electro, breaks, dub, classic rock, latin and genres that you've never even heard of, doing live mashups, remixes, and scratching. The Funkdealer has shared the stage with WC of Westside Connection, Sweat Shop Union, Mat the Alien and been the dj with local acts True Colours, Shatterproof, Groove Operator. Be prepared to get your dance on aboard the starship funk.
