Ben Tom (TMG)
While some artists find strength in the world around them, others source it from within. It’s that kind of internal poise that’s led DJ and producer Ben Tom (a.k.a. Durben) from the legendary days of Northern California’s late 1990s underground rave scene to residencies and countless performances at San Francisco’s hottest clubs to his current role with Temple SF, the innovative SoMA headquarters of Temple nightclub, the Temple Music Group and Prana Restaurant. His slammin' collaboration with Mr. V - "It's A Party" on Soul Selection Music makes Ben the perfect pairing.

Louisahhh (Staccato, Slow Roast - LA)
A New York City "Boroughbred" living in Los Angeles, LOUISAHHH!!! cut her chops on 'real instruments' prior to choosing turntables as her preferred mode of musical expression. Since doing so, her primary purpose in life has been to share with and transmit to the crowd the joy she feels from the music. With a sonic style described as 'Minimax Acid Disco House', LOUISAHHH!!!'s craft has been honed traveling the world as both a solo artist and part of the female DJ duo, Staccato (with Gina Turner) and working at Turntable Lab LA
Fortune (For U Events - Milwaukee)
Fortunes main mission will always be to make people happy. "Some dj for the buzz of controlling the crowd, some for glory, others for the creativity. Since I was a child I have always been literally moved by music; from those first family parties, music has been presented to me as something that goes hand in hand with moments of happiness. Providing the medium that brings that same enjoyment to others, making them smile, dance or just close their eyes for a moment, is what really fulfills me."
