Darkhorse started Djing in 1993 at a Hardkiss party in San Francisco. In 1995 Charles Uzzel Edwards AKA Pure Evil and Dj Darkhorse started The Gardening Club in San Francisco, A Monday night affair, it offered a decompression for the SF music industry after a long hard weekend. Dj's had to play music they would drop for their friends at home on a sunday early morning after too hard a night out on the town. Dj's that played at the club were Matty Skylab, The Mammal aka DJ Thomas, Felix The Dog, Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, DB, Jeno, Garth, Markie, Patrick Pulsinger, Pete Namlock and many more great Dj's from around the world passing through San Francisco. The club was set in the tropical restaurant location The Caribbean Zone. Inside the building was the Doobie Brothers old touring jet plane, made to look like it had crashed into a jungle. With one side of the plane looking out over the dancefloor. The roof slid back on the venue, so you could see the clear sky at night in the summer, as you listened to the music and eat free food from a vegan restaurant. The whole place was covered in tropical plants and waterfalls, a perfect place for The Gardening Club. We managed to take our form of music and Djing out from the second room at raves, to the main room and focus.
