@djmarkfarina has solidified himself in the world of Dance Music as a trailblazing DJ, Producer, tastemaker and bona fide House Music icon. After 3 decades crisscrossing the globe, he shows no signs of slowing down remaining innovative, humble, and firmly rooted in the underground.
“I look at my job as a ‘modern day traveling minstrel’ bringing new music to as many places as I can and exposing audiences to obscure records that otherwise might go hidden.”
As an early House Music pioneer in the late 80’s, Farina’s history includes an impressive long standing residency at Smart Bar Chicago and a job at the legendary Gramaphone Records. In the 90s, Mark pushed musical boundaries and blended genres to create “Mushroom Jazz”. Eventually, Mark made San Francisco his home as his signature sound created a strong demand for his DJ sets. The Bay Area proved to be a perfect match for Mark’s musical vision and he released a string of major mix compilations including his Mushroom Jazz series.
With a tireless passion for playing extended sets, B2B shows with fellow House Music icons, or playing both of his signature styles on 2 stages on the same night, Farina continues to entertain his incredible fans all over the globe with over 100 shows per year.
Currently, Farina is the head honcho at his record label, Great Lakes Audio Recordings. Next up in 2018 are residencies at House of Yes (NY), Grasshopper Underground (MI), and Site 1A (MKE).

Rab was born. He began to experiment with sound. The back of his head fell on the ground. Sound was released from the THUMP. It was deafening and created around him the first note of @randomrab’s music. Catch Rab Monday for a very magic and memorable morning set 🙏🏼💗🔥
There's really nothing like experiencing a festival from the eyes of a participant 🙈 It allows you to see just how much goes into creating such a spectacular place. I dont think I'll ever go without volunteering, and contributing to the magic 💫 Have you ever volunteered with an event?

So Odyssey Gathering 2018 was a blast, hey? You know you wander around a festival, taking it all in. Just looking for those key signs that you're in the right place. These signs are special moments, which often are similar and yet seldom the same. Moments that cause you to just take a deep breath, relax your muscles, and do a full 360 pirouette- if I could even compare it to something so graceful; scanning your surroundings preserving this small patch of heaven in your mind, to the best of your abilities.
This particular night, the music was pumping through the crowd, like lifeblood. The air was crisp and invigorating; performers all around expressing their gratitude for this free space. Then you see catch a picture of this lady hoopin' her brains out. You say to yourself, "damn, that's a fancy-hat-gypsy-hula-hoop-midnight-sandwich." Then you know, that's one of those moments.
HAH! Thought I'd have something poignant to say? Not today, nerds.
Throwback to dancing and expressing freely in the lake of @libfestival.

The joy of being present while at music festivals with other humans is one that is truly elixer for the soul!

@elpapachango from Argentina moved to the states as a young adult and brought with him a love of music from South America that he’s blended with West Coast underground beats, to create a groove that is unique and infectious to dance floors everywhere. Sexy, soulful and funky sounds come out of him even when he’s fast asleep. El Papachango is also one of the core creators of the legendary El Circo, one of San Francisco’s most prominent avant-garde performance groups that has been delivering music with a grip of very talented artists on massive systems across the planet, like Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, Freq Masty, Dj Laura, Antennae and many others. His latin fusion and hip hop influence leaves audiences stunned – with a sense of the mystical rooted in a very tangible dance floor experience. 📷: @aperturelove

5 years ago, I aligned with this beautiful soul ❤️ @akaraheart was the gateway to my creative freedom and the rememberence of the magic I posses inside. She opened me in ways I never could have anticipated.
When we met I remember been captivated by her fairy like essence, she didn't seem real, so magestic and enchanting.
We were in love at first sight, and together we unlocked the codes of empowerment and wisdom from an ancient sisterhood. We were stars in one another's paths, rainbows in one another storms. Our creative chemistry was like something I had never experienced and it was through this magical connection that @eclecticaperformance troupe birthed.
Together we weaved our hearts desires and created something so powerful, beautiful and transformative. As we evolved as too did our creation, blossoming into a service to humanity. We began to fuse prayer and intention with dance, creating a powerful healing modality and a transformative experience for those recieving us ❤️ 2 years ago akara and I were divided as she was called back to her home land in England. I continued pouring my heart and soul into the project, and she has been in my heart every day, every step, every breath of this creation.
In 1 month we reunite.
Performing together at @boomfestivalofficial
This ruinion feels sacred and powerful and I don't even know how to articulate the depth of excitement I feel to weave again with this ancient soul.
@akaraheart, you are a vision for all who meet you. I love you with all my heart, you are present with me every day. ❤️🙏❤️
We are a modern days sisterhood, with ancient roots ❤️ Sisterhood is where it's at 🙌
The strength and potency of Eclectica lays within the accessing of our sacred feminine power, womb wisdom, and the intention to bring forth healing and transformation through our expression. Underneath these pillars, lays the foundations of deep sisterhood and feminine support.
Known for diverse sounds and head nodding beats, @africanthat will have you moving. Born in Cape Town, South Africa, and now a “Vancouver household name,” his musical style is full spectrum. Hip hop, trip hop, downtempo, reggae, house, world beats, and all manner of bass music are all in his repertoire. All of the above are blended skillfully and sprinkled with a healthy dose of turntablism. It’s easy listening for the discerning ear. From dance floors in forests (Shambhala, Bass Coast, Astral Harvest, Luminosity, and many more) to that mix that was playing at your favourite restaurant last night, That African’s style is always pleasing crowds.
