Looking to be dj # 10,001 to play on the playa. Could be at your camp or on your art car. I have years of experience playing out in clubs in SF, and around the bay area. Playing mucho in the genre of Electro, but also branching out to play House, Techno, Collage, Theme Music, Downtempo, and more. I play from CD's for the playa.

10+ years of experience on the playa. Many costumes I love to perform in. Will be there all week long.

Here's a demo to listen to: ... useMix.mp3

Wanna hear me live? I'll be playing at Qöol in SF (111 Minna St.) on Wed 8/13/08

I get the feeling that there's too many deedjays out there.

Why is that?


Anyhoo, I call for a shootout. Meet me outside, main street, 9 pm. Dress sharp, we walk 10 feet and then shoot, only once. First down wins.

Moving Sound...

Post by artst4life » Fri Jul 25, 2008 4:19 pm

Hey Everyone!

You can almost feel the fires burning already for this years American Dream! Hi! We are building an Art Installation called "The Choice" which is going to involve an Open Mic and Sound System to give people a chance to express themselves at this years Burn, and need to find a ride for our sound system from southern California toward Reno.

The equipment is in Palm Springs now, and can be brought to somewhere as far North as Los Angeles, and from there catch a ride with someone up toward Reno where we can meet to pick it up. We will be happy to provide you with a reasonable amount of gas money for the trip, and/or some food and snacks from Whole Foods for your contribution to our installations success. If you know of a good, inexpensive way to ship the equipment as well, any info is welcomed and highly appreciated!

Thanks in Advance!
Cheers and Happy Burn!

Sound guy/ Laptop guy offering help

Post by VocoderBoy » Fri Jul 25, 2008 11:14 pm


I'm looking for people who want help with sound. I am a first time burner, and want to work on a sound stage or theme camp, helping with a sound system or doing roadie work. I will find my own way to BRC, and get my own ticket.

Is this a good place to ask?

Australia to Nevada.

Amateur Looking For A Low-Key Start

Post by ryanw79 » Fri Aug 01, 2008 12:59 pm

I'd like to DJ one day, but I've never done it (besides my friend's wedding). I've been told I'd be good at it, and that I have good taste. I love to play music for people and I have a huge library. I play rock, dance, and electronic mostly. I think what I can do would be most suitable for a lounge or bar, though I can make people dance too! I play everything off my laptop, so I just need a hookup to your system, or I can bring my portable speaker which is good for a small space. It can run off batteries, but it is louder if plugged in, very loud for a small space. If you want me to entertain you and your guests with some good tunes and chill, hit me up!

NYC HipHop/Funk/Soul/Dance/Disco vibe

Post by Sonny Ray » Tue Aug 12, 2008 9:27 am

Hey all,

I've been DJing vinyl since '97. I'll be at the Playa this year with a bagful of records and an ipod. I play tons of QUALITY hip-hop as well as the music that's inspired it--funk,soul,disco, etc--and some newish electronic stuff as well (Kitsune/DFA type). I also produce a group called The Hoarsemen.

I'd like to book a few gigs at different sound systems on the playa. I do a weekly internet radio show here in NYC so it's an easy way to hear what I'm into. For those of you who like hip-hop, you may be interested to listen to this whole archive--we had the honor of interviewing PHAROAHE MONCH this past week, and that's on there about 15 minutes in. My DJ set starts about 45 minutes in. It's a streaming MP3 link, no download necessary to listen. ... he.mp3.m3u

So, If you want to provide some different music at your camp, let me know. I can help!

Drum N Bass DJ coming from Hong Kong

Post by cookie » Thu Aug 14, 2008 2:16 pm

I've just decided that I'm coming to Burning Man this year all the way from Hong Kong. This will be my 9th burn.

I'm a Drum N Bass DJ and I run a crew called Magnetic Soul in Hong Kong. We host monthly International DNB events with the likes of Utah Jazz, Makoto, Randall, Outrage, SUV, Fabio, Nu:Tone, A-Sides, Sonic, Dieselboy, etc. plus regional Asian DNB artists.

I realize it's pretty late in the game, but I'm looking for places to DJ at Burning Man.

My still is definitely very liquid/jazzy. If you are running a soundsystem and looking for DJs, please drop me a line.

Playa VJ available for live mixes on your projection system

Post by thisispete » Thu Aug 14, 2008 2:45 pm

SF based video artist / VJ looking for some playa gigs.

Currently Available: wed, thurs before 3am, and fri

My website is here : for videos click on 'play' then 'VJ' then under each of the events there is a couple of photos followed by video samples, sorry I don't have a particular 'demo reel' on hand. (working on that)

My projections are generally very abstract, very textural, with lots of heavy layering and effects, often a mix of organic, geometric, and found footage, old b-movies, fashion footage, very artistic. I'm quite the opposite of the 'iTunes' visualizer style VJ's, I come from a fine art, analog video art, art gallery background, but since moving to SF 4 years ago I have been doing 'Club' visuals instead of 'Gallery installations'

As far as taste in music, what I most enjoy mixing to is electro, bangers, electro clash, synthpop, indie, german techno, funk, tech- house, hard house, darkwave, goth, industrial, downtempo, spacey minimal experimental noise, turntableists.. etc.

I do an all live mix from my laptop, setup wise all I need is a line into your projection system, (and a cold beverage in hand) and I'm ready to go.

cheers, and hope to see you out there!

whoops - I may have inadvertently posted to the wrong thread. I apologize profusely.

I'm going to Burning Man armed with 600 copies of my new cd "Soulful Filling". I'm looking for a sound camp (doesn't have to be large :) ) that would allow me to play the cd (51 mins) and allow me distribute copies at sunset one day - preferable weds or thurs.

Its a very mellow and beautiful cd. You can get a clear sense of my vibe off my website: where my previous 4 albums are available for free download. I've distributed a new album each burn. This one will go up online after I return.

heya -

late to the game, but I just decided to spin this year after all. I spin hip-hop (golden age and underground), funk, soul, baile funk, and electro. I'm down with spinning smoothed out head-noddy sets, stuff for the heads, or party-rockin booty-shakin sets, whatever you need. I've been spinning on the playa for a few years now and would especially love to spin on some art cars this year.

Aural Performance Artist Seeking Stages - Burning Man 2009

Post by MatheoDJ » Fri Jun 19, 2009 7:17 pm

Hi! New Burner, this will be my first time out on the Playa.

I'm touring with a group of circus performers, and we'll be going as a group to Burning Man this year. I'll have my entire DJ/Performance set-up with me, and I thought it would be fun to book a couple theme camps or stages, as a way to get involved, participate, and get to know people.

I do a lot of live looping of vocals and guitar, live rythym, synth, and turntablism, in addition to occasionally just "spinning tracks". Plays well with others!

PM for booking info

You might want to look for stages at this year's event, rather than last year's. Otherwise you're sort of setting yourself up for a bunch of "DJ's are sooooooo self-involved..." jokes.

Nautilus X

Post by CaptainNemoOfTheNautilusX » Wed Jun 24, 2009 6:46 pm

Ahoy Burners!
The Nautilus X will be returning to the playa this year with our 5th voyage out to the burn. The Nauty is a refurbished fully functional 60' MAN coach that operated along the 38 Geary line for 18 years in San Francisco. She was the last one of the MAN series retired from MUNI's articulated fleet in 2002. She is reborn as a deep desert exploration submarine entertaining while safely touring the playa art.

We are seeking Bands, DJ's, and Musicians that are confirmed to go to Burning Man this year and would be interested in performing onboard. We will venture out with nightly tours of the art with a constant flow of new BRC guests.

All performances are from the "Warped Core" which is the according central round section in the middle of the vehicle. The is an interesting area, as both ends move it remains an inertial calm zone. We can accommodate DJ's and bands with up to 4-5 members.

We have a sound system with internal speakers and a vinyl table set up with the option for plug input for other systems.

If interested please contact the Nauty Cruise Director at [email protected]

Thank you and see you all out on the playa!!
Next stop Black Rock City!
