More info about JASON KIDD:
After experiencing his first party in Dallas in 1993, Jason Kidd started buying and playing records with friends. Within the next year and a half, Kidd found his base in House music, particularly after seeing Derrick Carter and Robert Taylor at a Dallas club called SOA. In 1996 Jason Kidd made the transition from Dallas to Kansas City. With his focus on school, he nearly abandoned the decks all together until a chance meeting with DJ True and Pat Nice lead to the formation of The House Coalition (THC). Kansas City was merging as a House town at this time, being heavily influenced by the sounds coming down From Chicago. Once Kidd hooked up with True and Pat he never looked back from great House music.
This year marks 24-years as a DJ for Jason Kidd and it promises to be his best year yet. He recently celebrated the four-year anniversary of his solo residency, Swell. Swell has successfully featured regional House talent from the likes of Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, DIZ, Andrew Emil, Trevor Lamont, and Rees Urban to name a few. Jason Kidd's Swell promises some amazing surprises in Kansas City for House heads looking for that next fix.
More info about DINO VELVET:
Enter Dino Velvet. A product of the Midwest rave scene in the 90s, Dino educated himself in House music with the sounds of Chicago. Attending and playing parties throughout Middle America, Dino continued to improve his skills behind the decks over the next few years. In 2005, he packed his bags and headed west towards the House Music mecca that is San Francisco. His westward move proved to be a catalyst in his music career, as Dino quickly began promoting parties and establishing himself in San Francisco's House scene. The year 2009 marked a huge turning point for Dino with gigs at SF's oldest & most infamous dance club, The Endup. It was at The Endup, where Dino began to turn the heads of locals and headliners alike with his deep house sounds. Dino Velvet soon became an established and revered resident of one of the most popular monthly parties at the Endup, Sunday Mass.
2011 marked the end of Sunday Mass but new opportunities were right around the corner. The following year Dino teamed up with cohorts Leonard, Greg Yuen, and Joey Alaniz to bring San Francisco their own flavor of House music with a new party titled Common Ground. A monthly event held at SF's best new club Monarch, Common Ground quickly established itself as a key player amongst San Francisco's veteran House Music partygoers. Names like Jimpster, John Tejada, Ian Pooley, Fred Everything, Shur-I-Kan, JT Donaldson and Lance Desardi are just a few who have found their way to Common Ground's dance floor and the party shows no signs of slowing down.
