It's Fall once again in San Francisco and it's about time to get the Pulse SF trance machine fired up and back into blasting action! We've been pretty quiet over the summer as there was plenty of other amazing festivals all up and down the west coast to get your dancing fix on. But that just means we are all rested up and committed yet again to bringing you the best indoor trance events in the USA!
We'd already be over the moon with excitement just to be kicking off our fall/winter series for the 3rd year in a row. But this event also happens to be on Halloween Weekend and we're going all out with our biggest production ever with the amazing ghostly and futuristic projection mapping genius of Crush Worx technologies! And of course the epic music as we are bringing in one of the true masters and originators of the funky nighttime sound, E.V.P - Wildthings Records!!
Alex Axel Diplock is the founder of Wildthings Records who are responsible for putting out some of the best, most cutting edge psytrance in the world today. And with it being All Hallows Eve what better combination than having his tunes blast us into the other dimension to make contact with the spirit world among us! Of course we've also assembled a team of ghost busting commanders to support the Electronic Voice Phenomenon master on this ghoulish journey to the other side! Little John, Gayatree and Deli-Fi are all Pulse virgins and they are ready for their inaugural mission. So get your best costumes ready, strap in tight and hold on because this is going to be one ghoulish adventure that will change what you thought was possible!!!

:::: LITTLE JOHN the DJ (Raindance Presents) ::::
As an ubiquitous fixture of Northern California's music scene Little John is more than a DJ and an icon; he is a force of nature.
An extraordinary DJ, producer, remixer, and music historian, Little John's musical artistry transcends genres with an intensity, knowledge and savviness possessed by few. Whether he's playing Tech-House, Mid-tempo, Future Bass, or Booty Slap, this innovator continually unites factions and taps new levels of creativity simply for the heart of it. With an acutely discerning ear and an open mind and heart, his ability to read a crowd and mix the perfect vibe truly sets him apart. His is a genuinely unique approach that will move body, mind, and soul.
His roots run deeply through the creative hot-bed of San Francisco's mid 90's underground House scene and the incredibly diverse Santa Cruz free party scene. He became a resident of the legendary 13 Moon Tribe while simultaneously pioneering production of the wildly successful Raindance events, which continue to run strong today. Little John has played along-side many other first-class musicians and is regularly requested with such acts as Bassnectar, Tipper, Mark Farina, A.Skillz, and Fort Knox Five, to name just a few.
Current musical projects include a collaboration with Takuya Nakamura of Cocorosie; tapping into his gypsy roots and the birthing of his alter ego, Gudada, performing Gypsy Swing, Balkan Beat and Camel Krunk.
:::: INFINITE SUN (Pulse SF) ::::
Jenn Gaudioso has been an avid lover of psytrance since 2004. Having a strong passion for music she decided to pick up dj'ing in 2008. After many months of dedication and practice, her unique taste in musik was recognized by Dj Goatone who quickly invited her to become the first official DJ for the FractalTribe Network. After playing all over the east coast Jenn moved to San Francisco to get involved with bigger events. After being actively involved with throwing psytrance events under Entheogenic Garden and Dj’ing all over the west coast, east coast, Canada and Central America, Infinite Sun was asked to become a resident at the longest running psytrance weekly in the United States- Synchronize. Her musical style ranges from minimal techno, tech house, progressive house, prog, full-on, night-time and dark psytrance. In 2011 she teamed up with Psynthetic and Tobal from g.o.a play productions and started the Pulse collective which has already established a reputation for producing events of the highest quality.
:::: EVAN DELI-FI (Spirit of Goa, LA) ::::
Evan Deli-Fi is a Psychedelic DJ, born out of Southern CA's Psytrance scene. First exposed to Trance in Israel, he was deeply influenced by spiritual experiences with the Mojave Desert’s Psychedelic tribes. Viewing music as portal into other states of consciousness, his sets envelop the dance floor in organic, sacred sound that engages the mind as well as the body, facilitating the mystical trance experience. Building on his intimate knowledge of the trance dance floor, he specializes in bridging the gap from day to night, but can play to any dance floor vibe, ranging from Progressive through deeper night time grooves. Since appearing on the scene in 2010, he has already built a strong reputation in the California trance community with his keen ear for Psychedelia, precise mixing, and ability to read a crowd. He has played at some of the largest events in Southern California, such as Psytribe's Psychedelic Freakshow, often performing after Live Acts like Southwild and Chromatone. He is ½ of the Spirit of Goa crew, and is dedicated to building the California trance scene from within.
Khromata, aka Eileen Lewis, is a DJ with a passion for psychedelic electronic music, particularly full-on psytrance and psybreaks. Hailing from Bangkok, Thailand, where she was first exposed to the realms of psychedelic electronic music in the late 90s, she now resides in Northern California where she has since been spreading her signature sound of funky, fun, and dancefloor rockin' tunes.

Khromata has been part of the Northern California trance family since she moved to the U.S in 2002. Being deeply passionate about the music, it was a natural progression in her musical evolution to finally start DJing in 2010. After some hard work and dedication, she soon began playing her brand of funky full-on psychedelic trance. Due to her love for breakbeats, she soon discovered a natural attraction to psybreaks. Khromata has played events such as the How Weird Street Faire, Psymbolic, the Monterey Beach Burn, Gemini Dreams, LaborDance, Pulse Family Gathering, Crystallize in Colorado, and at numerous other clubs, outdoors and undergrounds across the state, as well as radio appearances on Nubreaks and NSBradio.
