Mark Farina has thrilled crowds globally, entertaining over 1 million fans per year. As one of the most ubiquitous DJs in Dance Music, Farina's known for both his unique style of mixing Jazz, Downtempo and House Music as well as being the creator of Mushroom Jazz: West Coast jazzy, organic productions combined with East Coast Hip-Hop, Urban beats.

Drawing from his vibrant youth, which included being a trumpet player in marching band, a drummer in a nu wave cover band and a guest DJ, Friday nights on WNUR (Chicago), Mark found his passion for the luscious world of vinyl, turntables and nightclubs. At 16, Farina began his DJ career as a resident at Chicago's underage mecca, Medusa's. Farina relocated to San Francisco in 1992. Fans embraced Mark's downtempo style and he started co-hosting a weekly Mushroom Jazz club night in ʻ93. In 3 short years, Farina established a fanatical, cult-like following for his Mushroom Jazz sound and in 1996, OM Records released the first mixed comp CD, simply titled, Mushroom Jazz.

Voted as one of the top DJ's in the world by URB, MUZIK and BPM magazines, Mark Farina's taste making skills continue to turn the heads of seasoned Dance Music veterans as well as newcomers to the scene.
The Sponges Based out of the sun-soaked city of Miami, The Sponges have been bringing their blend of classic disco vibes and modern day production techniques to dance floors all over. Having gained support from established artists and rising stars in the electronic scene like Justin Martin, GRiZ, Zeds Dead and Jauz, it’s clear that their infectious sound is the prefect addition to peak party hours.
In February 2019, The Sponges released their debut EP Episode VI: Return of The Sponges featuring the underground classic, “Space Funk ’75”. After a #1 position on Beatport, a viral twitter video and over 500k streams, The Sponges found themselves at the top of the charts once again with the release of their 2nd single “Funked Up”. Due to their incredible good looks, destructive beats and unbelievable creative innovation, the mysterious duo is well on their way to establishing themselves as one of the greatest acts to ever grace the sonic wasteland known as the electronic music industry.
Prepare to donate a generous portion of your Spotify library to the dukes of the disco, the future of funk, the lords of lowend, the czars of certified bangers, the emperors of ecstasy, the rulers of the rave, the bassline bastards and the gods of groove as they gear up for an explosive year in 2020 with releases scheduled for Night Bass, Box of Cats & TMRW Music!
