About this weeks line up
Emanate (Mioli Music)
Emanate (Emily & Nate) fell in love with the mystique of electronic music at an early age. Nathan Vain knew right away what his future passion held when he acquired his first turntables at the age of 17. Emily Fox took a different route starting her journey in the music scene as an organizer and promoter. This endeavor lead to landing Nathan his first residency at a popular after hours spot back in 2001.
A few years down the road and a desire for their success growing strong they moved to San Francisco together and started producing music as Emanate. Nathan enhanced his knowledge of music and the industry working at DanceRecords.com
from ‘04 to ‘09 as a Content Manager. That was followed by a stint interning at the
Mothership / Dirtybird labels. He also spent some time at the DJTechTools office working with midi controllers and software. Emily has developed her understanding of electronic music culture by throwing various events throughout San Francisco over the years. She also spent some time as a member of (a few) bands where she was writing songs, singing and playing keyboard. Emily’s next logical step became DJing, as a way to expand her talents and performance needs.
Following the path of natural evolution they started up their own label Mioli Music in 2010 (Move It Or Lose It). Since 2010 they’ve released music as Emanate and individually. They have also signed various international artists on Mioli.
Both Emanate and Mioli had a breakout year in 2013 when Kollektiv Turmstrasse charted their remixes of Lily Ackerman’s “Africa” and also their remix of Tr-Ack’s “Stay” on Resident Advisor. Being featured, charted and played in DJ sets along with the likes of Stimming, Adriatique, Bonobo and David August was a milestone that validated their hard work and dedication, it also alerted the world of their arrival.
A relocation to Berlin in early 2014 helped formulate and solidify their craft and sound. While in Berlin Emanate produced and released their debut album “Alliance” and played their first Live Show. The Alliance album was well received and featured on various music magazine websites and dance music blogs but also recognized by Emanate as an immensely developmental experience. 2016 was a remarkable year in their progression touring Mexico, Ibiza, Bulgaria, Berlin. With festival bookings at BPM, Mountains in the Meadows and Northern Nights. Most recently they toured
the U.S. performing at imfamous venues such as TV Lounge, Spy Bar and Members Only.
From Techno, Tech House to Deep House you can expect a clever blend and balance of deep and edgy music that is thoughtfully procured.
Originally from Arkansas and now residing in Texas, STETRA, entered the scene in 2010. She's performed shows alongside Eli and Fur, Hotel Garuda, JACKAL, Jen Lasher, Wale, Huda Hudia, We Are Treo, SuperVision, Archnemesis, Kim Kat, DJ Rhiannon, Kim Lee, and Crystal Ellis. Influenced by a large range of musical genres, she is known for her diverse sets and her two distinct styles she encompasses in her ENMOTION (Nocturnal and Daybreak) brand that ranges from RnB soul to house and techno.
Antonio Manigrassi (Intimate Affair/ Italy / SF)
From a small town in South Italy to the oceanside of the Bay Area, Antonio Manigrassi has been a regular fixture in San Francisco's nightlife for over four years. With residencies at local hotspots like Breakfast Club and STUDIO afterhours, as well as opening slots for Tom Trago,Halo,Gene Hunt, Doc Martin,Jessie Rose, Danny Buddha Morales and many more, Antonio has been garnering enthusiastic audience response and critical praise for his hypnotic-styled techhouse.

Quite simple, Antonio takes listeners on a groovy journey through his sound of tech house and disco.
2016 looks to be a busy year for Antonio as he begins his journey playing in other cities such as in Mexico and in Seattle and continues to work on making more music and purveying those deep, hypnotic grooves and a feel-good atmosphere.
