San Francisco, CA
Sound Department returns with their 5th party at Monarch, the 1st of the new year sees two upcoming stars. Alex Niggemann and Simon Garcia have both made names for themselves in recent years.
Alex Niggemann‘s style is hard to define. This headstrong producer isn‘t inte- rested in sub-genres and likes to describe himself as a House DJ. He produces and plays whatever suits him at the moment: from dark tech house to vocal-heavy house music. Either way, he‘s always right on target with the club crowds who dance to his music all night long – all over the world. Wherever his mood takes him, the club scene will be paying close attention to what comes next on Alex Niggemann‘s turntables.
Simon Garcia has seen his works released on labels such as Poker Flat, Supplement Facts, Perspectiv, Dieb Audio, OM Records, Cécille or Composite among other high-profile labels, either with his real name or his aliases Kornelius or Larakki, releasing original tracks or remixing for the likes of DJ Yellow, Sasse, Matthias Vogt, Wagon Cookin’, Lee Burrdige, Tomoki Tamura, and others. His genuine, timeless, personal, hypnotic and futuristic sound, is already getting support for the likes of many of the most respected worldwide tastemakers: Laurent Garnier, Seth Troxler, D’Julz or Deetron, who recently remixed the latest Simon’s release on the Ripperton’s Perspectiv label, and of course Guy Gerber and Steve Bug, who with Simon has edited several releases on their own labels. A unique vibe that can be completly felt in his dj sets, which you can also follow on his show ‘The Green Lab’, aired monthly on Proton Radio.
