More on Pelada
Montréal electronic duo, Pelada, have resonated with audiences for their recontextualized blend of Chicago house, Detroit techno with more abstract & abrasive club music. Chris Vargas’ lyrics, delivered in Spanish, explore themes of power, surveillance, social, environmental and gender politics.
The duo, comprised of vocalist Chris Vargas and producer Tobias Rochman, create a sound combining a patchwork of sequenced analogue synths, drum machines, samplers and voice that is both urgent and powerful. The resulting live sets are living and breathing entities, energetic and combative.
More on Omar Perez
“Raised in the thriving musical subcultures of Washington, D.C., Omar Perez was exposed to the sounds of post-punk, hardcore and go-go at concerts and parties. It was this early education that is responsible for the eclectic and open-minded slant he brings to mixing records. Ask him about his favorite artists and he’ll offer up a list of strange bedfellows that includes The Cramps, Public Enemy and Chrome.
Omar’s multivariate approach resonates with people whose tastes may be equally as broad; an asset that has made him an in-demand dj for artists such as Duran Duran, Grace Jones, Pet Shop Boys, The Cult, Primal Scream and The Jesus And Mary Chain. His two-decade spanning career in San Francisco’s nightlife has produced some of the most musically diverse and inclusive dance parties in San Francisco. In a local nightlife scene that falls prey to segmentation, he has attracted gay, straight, hipster, nerd, rocker, technophile and curious bystander alike with great clubs such as “Popscene, “Leisure”, “Sixxteen”, “Bordello”, “Shutter” and “Fake”. ”
