Beats for Lunch: Midday Dance Party | SF
Beats for Lunch is back and as always, the rules are simple – enter, dance, take away a meal to enjoy back at your desk or wherever the day takes you from here.
Free, but an RSVP and dancing is required. No wallflowers please.
This month’s special guest DJ: Mykill – Whether it’s Indie Dance, Nu-Disco, House, or any other underground style, MyKill likes to keep things melodic, emotionally moving, funky, and fun. His success is based off a deep knowledge and understanding of music, crowds and knowing how to play a room or a time slot correctly. With a balance of what is expected and what is unexpected, while always keeping things interesting.
Beats for Lunch eschews treadmills in favor of tech house and lunch meetings in favor of DJ-dancefloor freedom at new club on the block, Monarch (101 6th St), which boasts the Void sound system recently rated best in the city (SF Weekly).
They will have to-go prepared lunches of the highest quality available for purchase.
With Beats for Lunch Resident:
Matt Haze (More SF) feat. Will Magid live on trumpet
Matt Haze is a riddle wrapped in an enigma, covered in a stylish beard. One of the most forward-thinking and current DJs in SF, Haze rubs contemporary and classic jams with a marinade of cutting edge beats and a nod to the old school. Haze is difficult to classify but impossible to resist. He is best known for his work with SF’s Slayers Club collective, dropping styles across the beat board, selecting tracks based on mood and energy rather than confining himself by genre conventions.
Will Magid’s trumpet will take you to Havana in the summertime. It will take you to a West African wedding and, simultaneously, a French dance club. It will take you to soul music in Japan, a 1920’s speakeasy, then to the cusp of the end of the world, where everyone’s dancing because they have nothing to lose. The trumpet will holler vibrantly no matter what. And it’s a flexible instrument, well suited for his music production style with victorious leaps among sounds from the past, sounds from here and sounds from elsewhere. While he’s devoted to his trumpet, Will is truly a multi-instrumentalist/producer. The resulting pieces are buoyant jams packed with rich layers of celebratory horns, bouncing percussion, classical strings and even a bit of ambient noise.
