BLANK & JONES BIOGRAPHY:
Blank & Jones' deliberately simple dance music dominated the top of Germany's dance charts during the country's late-'90s trance explosion. After a chance meeting at the PopKomm music conference, one-time record clerk Piet Blank and Ratinger Hof's resident DJ Jaspa Jones formed the Blank & Jones production team to make broad trance records of the Aeon, Kai Tracid, DJ Manta, Darude, and Angelic variety. Met with consistent financial success as they laid the groundwork for their full-lengths, the band also won the respect of their peers, finding remix work for Fragma, Mauro Picotto, and Moby, as well as getting the chance to use Yello's Deiter Meir on their second album, 2001's Nightclubbing.
SYD GRIS BIOGRAPHY:
Dr. Syd Gris. A renaissance man of the SF dance music community, Syd was recently voted the number 6 most popular dj in San Francisco. He is the founder and leader of the Opulent Temple, one of the premiere sound stages at the Burning Man festival, as well as one of the organizers of the San Francisco LoveFest, (formerly Loveparade San Francisco). He heads up his own production company in San Francisco under the name Opel Productions, with a mission to throw ‘conscious parties with purpose’. His musical tastes and dj talents are as diverse as his interests, being able to move in a number of worlds like few in the SF dance music scene. From gutter house to progressive trance to tech funk breaks, he has been tapped to open or close at major gigs with the likes of Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold, Meat Katie, Stanton Warriors, Armin Van Burren, Ferry Corsten, Hybrid, Sandra Collins, Blank & Jones and many other global super stars. His style is fresh, dynamic and always walking a line between the gritty and the pretty.
