Bo is a San Francisco based underground tech house and techno DJ. He’s known for his unique style of new school underground music. He plays a very upbeat groovy, dirty and trippy style of tech from darker stuff to tribal. “When the listener walks in the room I want them to feel a theme, a presence, some sort of energy that grasps them, some sort of energy that they haven’t felt before but immediately feel how strong it is. As it begins to excite and energy dishes up from the DJ booth I begin to layout my sounds to lure the listener in on a journey they yet have realized… Its all about the latest sounds and tracks in underground techno, tech house, and electro instructed to tickle your mind till dawn. Its the perfect balance between dark, trippy, dirty, and melodic tracks that make you move with music that you haven't heard before.” (Bo)

Bo started DJn at the young age of 16. At the age of 19 he became a resident for Billy Vidal and Adrian Jaffe’s VGevents. Soon after he began spinning with Bobak’s Peach Productions. From there he helped jump start Back2basics Productions. This lead him to residency’s at all sorts of clubs all around SF like the old Cloud9, SnoDrift, Bambuddha, ANU and SupperClub where he played along side house music legend DJs like Derrick May, Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, John Aquaviva, Marques Wyatt, DJ Heather and others. Soon after he began adventuring to his true inspiration the underground after hours warehouse scene of SF, here he became a resident with the party “UpSwing” a monthly underground party put together by NK7 and other crews. This is where his sound began to evolve and he was able to push it to the next level as it became a lot more creative with a deeper, dirtier, trippy unique feel. Soon after he started throwing a lot of his own underground parties and helped start Deep Blue Underground with DJ Rooz. Originally Deep Blue was the name of the underground after hours warehouse parties they threw, which after a series of successful underground events over two years time Deep Blue Underground became a brand name for incredible parties that had some of the newest sounds of house and techno by some of the top local and world known DJs. Eventually this lead Deep Blue to regularly host these underground style parties at some of the top clubs of SF like club Mighty, 1015, Vessel, Harlot, Slide and others. Big shows with DJs such as Dubfire, Sharam, Francios K, Steve Lawler, Paul Ritch, Nic Fanculli and more.
Today Bo continues to push the Deep Blue Underground parties and his unique sound as it continues to evolve. He plays all over SF at clubs and underground after hours parties. His next step is music production, he has two new tracks coming out in 2010. Stay tuned….
