All Day I Dream
Label and event producer All Day I Dream returns to San Francisco this weekend for All Day I Dream of Floating Cities. The event seems tailor-made for San Francisco in the early fall (or summer as we like to call it) with its emphasis on a blissful musical message, emotive house and techno sounds, and the collaboration of individuals in a creative and magical way. This time they've found a new space, Oakland's Middle Harbor Shoreline Park. While last year's event evoked rainforest feels, this year focuses on theme of cities on water. The space offers majestic views of our own downtown Atlantis while giving the gritty techno feeling from those Oakland cranes. The new space ensures that you'll be on a musical adventure. Creating the day's sonic landscape are, of course, label head Lee Burridge, as well as fellow labelmates Oona Dahl and Lauren Ritter (get it girls). The event is holistic - there's so much more than music. The day will start off with some yoga and sound meditation and the event will feature some Burner-culture-friendly vendors. Feel free to pack a picnic (but leave the drinks at home!). This is the end of the season for these folks so wake up this Saturday and start dreaming. Date: Saturday, October 1, Time: 1pm-9pm, Place: Oakland Middle Harbor Shoreline Park, Cover: $25-45, More Info (ML)

Sunset Season Closer Picnic
It's sad. It's true. It's sunny. It's the end of the season. While it feels like we spent most of the summer in a foggy, windy haze (or maybe we actually did), the summer has come and gone and along with it the dreams of dust and the parties underneath the sun or even the clouds. One thing this does mean is a spate of season-ending parties, none of which is more important to the local community than the Sunset Season Closer at the beloved Stafford Lake. This year in an unprecedented but now seemingly-obvious choice, Sunset residents will be teaming up with Honey Soundsystem, your other favorite big underdog on the block from SF to the world. With tunes from the likes of Jason Kendig, Jackie House, Josh Cheon, and Carlos Souffrant of Honey matched with Sunset regulars Solar and Galen, you know that the music this year will be on point. Match that with the amazing space, amazing vibes, and hopefully amazing weather and you've got yourselves a Closer. Join in the fun at the first-ever afterparty at The SF Eagle, featuring the same headlining DJs and some kinky fun near the underpass. Date: Sunday, October 2, Time: 11am-7pm, Place: Stafford Lake, Novato, Cover: $5/individual vehicle, $25/auto, no cost for large vehicles, SF Eagle $5-10, More Info (ML)

Event: Lights Down Low w/ Honey Dijon

DJs: Honey Dijon, Matrixxman, Richie Panic, Vin Sol, Adam Kraft
Music: Chicago house, disco, techno
Cover: $15-20
Miss Honey Dijon's brazen style blends all genres without looking to the past. Although she spins a distinct Chicago sound with inflections of the deep New York underground, Honey prides herself on a style that is all her own. Whether she is easing them into a trancey vibe with the dark sounds of techno, or lifting them up with pumping house, she knows how to rock a party! A native of the Windy City, Honey was first inspired by the legendary house sounds of such dj pioneers such as Ron Hardy, Derrick Carter, Green Velvet, and Frankie Knuckles. When she moved to New York , Honey became great friends with even more influential dj's, including the pioneering Danny Tenaglia, who finally urged her to get behind the decks. She is coming in hot to Lights Down Low, ready to seduce and enchant us with her unique sound mixing classic house and disco, techno. San Francisco Legend Charles Duff AKA Matrixxman touches back down on his semi-native soil for a very rare appearance behind the decks. The techno wizard first entombed himself in the studio, seeking only the nastiest and more futuristic of techno tunes, to emerge prolific and in demand on a global stage.

Event: DJ Shadow
Venue: 1015 Folsom
DJs: DJ Shadow
Music: hip-hop
Cover: $30
DJ Shadow (born Josh Davis) is widely credited as a key figure in developing the experimental instrumental hip-hop style associated with the London-based Mo' Wax label. Inspired by hip-hop's early years, he then grew to absorb the heyday of crews like Eric B. & Rakim, Ultramagnetic MCs, and Public Enemy; groups which prominently featured DJs in their ranks. Josh "Shadow" Davis had already been fiddling around with making beats and breaks on a four-track recorder while he was in high school in the NorCal cow-town of Davis, but it was during college that he co-founded his own Solesides label as an outlet for his original tracks. Hooking up with Davis' few b-boys (including eventual Solesides artists Blackalicious and Lyrics Born) through the college radio station, Shadow began releasing the Hip-Hop Reconstruction mix tapes in 1991 and pressed his 17-minute beat-head symphony "Entropy" in 1993. His tracks spread widely through the DJ-strong hip-hop underground, eventually catching the attention of Mo' Wax.

Event: Vintage Culture
Venue: Verso
DJs: Vintage Culture
Music: nu-disco
Cover: $10
Brazilian producer Lukas Ruiz has dedicated himself to create a unique brand of Nu-Disco that focuses on blending the sounds of retro synth pop with the innovative feeling of the modern Deep House/Nu-Disco scene. Growing up Lukas fell in love with the sounds of Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk and found inspiration in the music of the 80's and 90's; he began combining elements of these styles with the sexy feel of the Brazilian Dance scene and Vintage Culture was born.

Event: As You Like It pres. Session Victim
Venue: Monarch
DJs: Session Victim, Sappho, Mike Gushansky
Music: tech-house
Cover: $20
Rural Germany may not be as much of a tongue twister as The Rural Juror, but it certainly is an important place in the annals of house music. Whether the artist at hand is from rural Bavaria, "somewhere outside Cologne", or near the Black Forest, they've certainly got something in the water supply (or maybe long winters) that turn the sons and daughters of Germany's countryside to the task of making some of the world's best electronic music. Hauke Freer and Matthias Reiling don't live in the same city (Reiling is in Hamburg while Freer is in Berlin), the two occasionally meet up for rare appearances where they play the kind of house music that they spent years learning in their rural German town of less than 60,000. Apart from their releases on Jimpster's Delusions of Grandeur label, they also run their own label: Retreat. Of course As You Like It is the one bringing this quality music to our fair city and they'll be backing it up with local friend Sappho and visitor-but-still-feels-like-home-to-him AYLI resident, Mike Gushansky. Enjoy the family, vibes, and of course great music that AYLI consistently promises. (ML)

Event: Gigamesh
Venue: Verso
DJs: Gigamesh
Music: funk, disco, pop
Cover: $5 presale
Gigamesh is the stage name of Matt Masurka, an American multi-platinum selling music producer and DJ. His numerous remixes and two EPs have earned him a swiftly building reputation as one of the most versatile and consistent names in indie-dance music. Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, it's no surprise Gigamesh has developed a keen taste for funk, disco and pop. The sound is immediately recognizable in much of his music, however he maintains a flexible aesthetic. Gigamesh is an ardent fan of minimalist concert music, film scores, classic rock, italo disco, French house, Miami bass, and genre-bending electronic music. These elements have all combined to forge his all-inclusive approach to music appreciation and creation.

Event: Parameter- 2 Year Anniversary
Venue: The Midway
DJs: Clouds, Zenker Brothers, Bruce, Beneath, DIEM
Music: techno, bass
Cover: $25
It's hard to believe that Parameter is turning two, but it's true! And for this momentous occasion, Parameter is bringing out the heavy hitters and bass. Clouds, a Scottish duo known for their banging and relentless techno sound, will be making their Bay Area debut at Parameter. These guys have been playing at all the huge techno music festivals around the world, so it's great to have them here in SF. Next up are the Zenker Brothers, who're from Munich. Normally Parameter tends to book mainly UK artists, but the crew made the exception for these German lads who run the impressive Ilian Tape label. Bruce, Beneath and DIEM round out the lineup, with Parameter being the only stateside show that Beneath will perform at, so you know this event is not to missed. Help Parameter celebrate this two year milestone, with many more to come. (CQ)

Event: YoKoO
Venue: Public Works
DJs: YoKoO, Rooz, Bo
Music: house
Cover: $15-25
YokoO is no stranger to house music in all its deepest forms. A studio head in the true sense of the word, he spends much of his time pondering basslines and warm synth riffs that heat up dancefloors the world over. With releases on highly regarded labels such as All Day I Dream, Musik Gewinnt Freunde, Kindisch, Get Physical, Moodmusic and Plastic City, YokoO has marked out a spot for himself in the global house music scene with talent being sought after from every corner of the world. His musical intuition drives his production and his full groove based approach to seductive house music turns heads of many a label boss from Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Matthew Dekay and Lee Burridge no less. As well racking up plays from industry reference artists, YokoO's music has proven time and time again it can reach the record bags of the DJing elite in every continent. His warm melodies work with the heavy basslines to create a unique sound that is deep but still pumping enough to get a party started and going way passed sunrise.
