JOill, Detroit-bred, has been calling San Francisco his home since 2001. His name is a combination of the classic American name, "JO", combined with his Korean roots & middle name,"ill", which, let’s face it, sounds awesome in any language.

JOill has been performing since 1986. His background & training as a jazz saxophonist granted him the soulful musical comprehension that he would later incorporate into his dance music career. The concrete jungle classrooms of Chicago and Detroit were geographically accessible in his development and gave him the urban exposure that can’t be taught on paper, giving him the edge he needed to break into electronic music.

For nearly 20 years, JOill has been creating "the good vibe," on the dance floor as a DJ with multifaceted selections that vary with his surroundings. While today his sound is certainly deep-and-tech house focused, Soul, Indie Clash and Nu-Disco elements are sure to surface when the moment permits.

Overall, JOill makes it clear that creating an infectious groove prevails above any attempt to stay within genre lines. It’s his commitment to this fundamental ideal that’s landed him residencies with some of San Francisco’s most reputable nightlife staples, including the acclaimed BASE nights, members-only club The Battery, and DJ collective powerhouse, Modular. Using SF as his jumping-off point has led to gigs in and affiliated to some of the world’s most reputable festivals, parties & clubs (including Coachella, Movement-Detroit, Fusion-Germany, BPM-Mexico, Carnival-Brasil, Lightning in a Bottle, Burning Man, Cocoon-Berlin, Watergate-Berlin, Sankeys-Ibiza, Monarch, Public Works, Harlot, Vessel & Audio) & also playing on the same bills with electronic musics respected djs such as Damian Lazarus, Audiofly, DJ Tennis, M.A.N.D.Y, Sasha, BLOND:ISH, Acid Pauli, Maayan Nidam, Oliver Koletzki, Nicone, Ruede Hagelstein, Jesse Rose and Adriatique…to name only a few.

Next up for this break out artist is focusing on production. Keep an eye out for JOill as we finally have the pleasure of having him back on US soil after his successful, European summer-tour. JOill will surely remind us what it feels like to truly connect with a DJ. Enjoy!

It is always a pleasure to present the latest masterpiece on Music Man Records, composed by Steve Bug, Seth Troxler and Deetron. Deetron a.k.a.

Truthfully, I really don't have enough good things to say about the Italian trio Agents of Time. No strangers to our site, Andrea Di Cagile, Fedele Ladisa and Luigi Tutolo, are three passionate artists who have combined forces to create one of the most mysterious projects to ever come out of Italy. Their innovative sound only adds amusement to their ominous project, keeping their audience on their toes and always guessing what sound will be creeping around the corner. The Italian trio sat down CONTINUE READING
