We bringin' in some HEAT from all over the country to celebrate the season of Libra,
"Southern born, west coast relocated, with production taking inspiration from each. Staying heavily rooted in the bouncey Southern club tempo, fusing it with melodic r&b and hip-hop elements with sprinkles of world music. With support from DJ and crew’s like Salva, Clicks & Whistles, DJ Benzi, Mad Decent, WeDidIt, DJ Skeet Skeet, LuckyMe, Djemba Djemba, Boiler Room and many more, Its easy to see why Falcons is on many lists of producers/ dj’s to watch in 2013. Past shows Falcons has been involved in are Low End Theory LA & SF, Boiler Room LA, Red Bull This City Belongs To Us, Love Parade Music Festival SF, Shambhala Music Festival Vancouver, and many more.
Beyond just production and remixing, Falcons is talented as a DJ, blending similar artists in the genre, as well as paying homage to the classic hip-hop and r&b that inspired. The live set consists of seemless mixing, and party rocking, as well as live remixing and effects work, giving the audience something to dance too, or watch. "
**SF DEBUT **
** B. BRAVO (FRITE NITE) **
"B. Bravo adds a touch of love to every funked-out late night synth groove he gets his hands on. Hailing from California under the influence of west coast GFunk, Roy Ayers and Herbie Hancock, he’s pioneering a new sound in electronic music connecting interstellar funk and R’n'B with contemporary dance, hip hop and ‘bass’ music. As a founding member of the Frite Nite label/crew based in San Francisco, he is also a driving force in the emerging worldwide Modern Funk Movement. Bravo’s massive tune ‘Computa Love’ gained international acclaim as one of London tastemaker Benji B’s ‘best of 2009′ selections for his BBC 1xtra radio program, and as the lead track and 12″ from Gilles Peterson’s 2010 Brownswood Electr*c compilation. Red Bull Music Academy hand picked Bravo as a participant to attend their coveted program in London for 2010 and continue to support him as celebrated alumni.
As a DJ and live performer, complete with synths, vocoder and talkbox, Bravo has shared the stage with artists like Chromeo, Dam-Funk, Flying Lotus and in 2011 serenaded crowds across the world with his bass heavy outerspace boogie and dirty grinding synth grooves at festivals like SXSW, Detroit Electronic Music Festival, and Sonar in Barcelona.
2011 also saw the release of Bravo’s third solo release, the highly praised Kiss ‘n’ Tell EP on the Earnest Endeavours imprint, and the formation of his seductive live band ”The Starship Connection’ co-piloted by fellow SF funkster, Teeko. Their collaboration EP is due out early 2012 on Frite Nite records as well as an official Teeko & Bravo remix for Mark Ronson feat. D’Angelo. Also in the works for 2012 – Mr. Bravo’s highly anticipated debut LP!"
