Gina Turner (http://www.myspace.com/DJGinaTurner)
House music just got exponentially cuter. Gina Turner works tirelessly, turning a whole new generation on to the merits of a 4/4 beat. Originally hailing from New York, Gina Turner grew up with the NYC House sounds of clubs like Shelter and Sound Factory. Drawing inspiration from places such as these, she moved to Boston and gained her own radio shows on 88.9 WERS and 99.9 WECB. She soon became a staple in the Boston club scene and then in 2006 moved to Los Angeles.
In LA she formed the DJ duo STACCATO and continued with radio and club. She also founded an afterhours movement called MAJOR. Gina has extended her talent across the pond and successfully crossed over international borders. She has caught the attention of Laidback Luke, Zoo Brazil, Switch, Junior Sanchez & many heavy hitting producers and with that comes collaborations that are legendary. BLACK HOLE RECORDINGS will be released her track "BANG IT" with Zoo Brazil. Gina's collaboration with Laidback Luke has birthed a new production duo called "Nouveau Yorican." These tracks can be described as "Latin inspired shuffle house" and will be released on labels such as Sound Pellegrino and MixMash. Boriqua, their first release, dropped in December of 2009 on the white-hot Sound Pellegrino label to much acclaim.
The first female DJ to be offered her own Scion Radio 17 Show, Gina presents an eclectic and bassy array of some her favorite DJs in the scene. This is just the beginning as she plans to release more tracks as Staccato as well her highly anticipated solo productions and collaborations. In addition to her Scion Radio show, Gina has had mixes and tracks featured on Discobelle and Fool's Gold, was interviewed by NPR during Winter Music Conference, and is a regular contributor on the Mad Decent site which Diplo runs.

Homero Espinosa (Yerba Buena Discos) - Happy Bday!
Homero Espinosa began spinning records as DJ Huey in the Bay Area in the early 90's, quickly finding a niche in the underground rave scene. He easily rose to prominence as one of the few rave DJ's playing true underground house music in a scene overwhelmed by trance and European pop-dance music. Homero's production skills have also led to him gracing the decks worldwide as well as engineering for many Bay Area house music heroes.
