a little background on MSTRKRFT.......
MSTRKRFT (pronounced "Master-craft") is an electronic music group from Toronto (The Beaches), Ontario, Canada who are signed to Dim Mak Records. The group was started in 2005 by JFK formerly of Death from Above 1979 and Al-P formerly of the Mississauga electropop group Girlsareshort. The duo have been close friends, as well as work partners, for a long time. MSTRKRFT also produced Die Mannequin's first EP, How to Kill, and Magneta Lane's second LP, Dancing With Daggers.
Nisus' sets seem to astonish every time, flowing seamlessly through electro bangers to womping dubstep explosions and tech-funk tweaks, leaving crowds in an inspired mess of sweat and revelation. He runs the bass game in SF like no other. Holding down a two year residency for powerhouse promoter blasthaus. Nisus has supported acts such as Fake Blood, Vitalic, The Bloody Beetroots, and Boys Noize at Mighty, Mezzanine, and The Independent. His productions are whipped up electronic analog bass frenzies that have gained momentum through his recent winning of the Outside Lands remix contest.
As one of the founders of the young and promising Hacksaw Entertainment, DJ Shane King knows how to get a party going. Playing feel good dance party music which incorporates everything from grimy hip hop to 80s electro, this DJ knows the beats and sounds to get a crowd going crazy.
come party Thursday night.
