ABE MORA (#FOFN, Club Synth)
Los Angeles Native Abe Mora has been exploring the realm of Techno since the mid 90’s. First starting off as a DJ then eventually moving on to Music production. He now pushes his sound forward while experimenting in the Darker Realm of Techno.

New as an artist but a member of the scene since the early 90s, Vincent draws inspiration from techno’s vast history on both sides of the pond to create dark, pounding techno.

MAXBETTA (#FOFN, Acid Varsity)
MaxBetta came from the future, any more information and you will have to be terminated.

DPSM (#FOFN, Anything Fresh, Freeclouds)
While still collecting a variety of records from Music Market in Costa Mesa, in 1989 I started attending a spot in Laguna Beach named,”Club Post Nuclear,” which introduced me to DJ Robin, an eclectic DJ with a wide variety of tastes. Robin would throw in sounds from Nine Inch Nails, Front 242, Psychic TV, Kraftwerk, Skinny Puppy while mixing in newer artists like Guru Josh, Meat Beat Manifesto and Prodigy. I started buying more “Techno” based music from labels such as Underground Resistance, XL Recordings and R&S from Noise, Noise, Noise in Costa Mesa.
Then it happened- the opening of Dr. Freecloud’s Record Shoppe in Costa Mesa where all of my vinyl and electronic dreams came true. Since it’s opening I have been a loyal customer and friend to the store which supplies me with a plethora of releases.
Throughout the years I have played at various parties and through my other musical endeavors (Fantastic Planet) have even had my 15 minutes of fame opening for Blink 182 and The Black Eyed Peas in 1998.
I represent Dr. Freecloud’s Record Shoppe, Anything Fresh and my newest partnership with #FOFN (Friends of Friends Network), three associations I am very proud to be a part of.
I love music for music’s sake. There are benefits that come along with playing and networking but the experience should never be tarnished by an over active ego, it just gets in the way and you’ll probably “train wreck” anyway.
