12/3/13 SHELTER @ Underground SF (SF, CA)
12/5/13 BACK & FORTH @ Pork Store Cafe on 16th st (SF,CA)
Mr Rise has been turning heads in the scene since 2003 where he made his debut in Eugene, Oregon as a jungle and drum n bass DJ. As he made his way from show to show he met a lot of great people and represented some excellent production companies such as Flux from Eugene and Flair out of Portland. In 2007 he moved to San Francisco for career purposes and was unleashed upon a new canvas of music and art. Here he has been honing his mixing skills and has been playing many different parties and club nights around the Bay Area.
If you could describe Mr Rise's style it would be hard-edged and bass-heavy yet melodic and psychedelic.His specialties are jungle, drum n bass, dubstep, glitch hop, future blap, spacecrunk, trip hop, mash-up and and any other type of sick broken beats.
Mr Rise has had the pleasure of playing alongside many different amazing artists such as DJ Swamp, SPL, Rinse, NastyNasty, Thriftworks, DJG, Benito, So What, Megalodon, and Samples just to name a few.
Mr Rise is off to a new venture throwing a monthly called "BACK & FORTH" at The Pork Store Cafe in The Mission of SF. The night is designed to be a hang out spot to relax on a Thursday night and hear some great tunes... but if a track instills in you the need to dance, don't just stand there... move somethin'!! The name BACK & FORTH was spawned from the styles of music that will be played over the night, ranging from older hip hop, pop and classics to newer forms of underground electronic, and everything in between. The idea is for whoever is playing to mashup their favorite old music with their favorite new music, and not stick to just one BPM.
If you made it this far... thanks for reading!!
