Brian resides in Nevada City, CA where he is considered one of the leaders in the underground West Coast music scene both as a DJ & event producer. Brian’s refined & versatile sound can best be summed up with the phrase “warm, organic, world beats: mostly Latin, African, & Carribbean.” Within that description though, his style is eclectic & ranges from sweet dub cumbia, to midtempo beats filled with Latin rhythms & African chants to the heartbeat of deep, dubby, ethno house. He, along with longtime friend & ally Isis Indriya, coproduce HeartBass, a monthly event in Nevada City that has a reputation as one of the most high-vibed underground dance parties on the west coast. The year 2017 saw Brian playing a wide variety of domestic and international gigs, from Envision in Costa Rica, Bali Spirit Festival, Cosmic Convergence in Guatemala, Air Festival on the Gili Islands and New Earth Festival in Indonesia, to the Oregon Eclipse Gathering, Enchanted Forest, Lightning in a Bottle, California World Fest, Bioneers Conference & Imagine Festival to name just a few of his west coast appearances; he has provided direct support for iconic live acts such as Dirtwire, LulaCruza, Beats Antique, Les Nubians, Vieux Farka Toure, members of Rising Appalachia, and many others. Brian was an award winning 8th grade Humanities teacher before retiring from teaching to focus on his music career full time.
