Sunset Sound System
Galen founded Sunset Sound System with the idea of providing free, outdoor picnic-style parties where people could commune and dance while watching the sun set behind the San Francisco skyline. Word spread quickly, and what began as a few friends with speakers and a generator turned into festivities of over 1,000 people within the first year. Today, Sunset Sound System is on the move, boasting big-name talent for their international boat parties, festival-style campouts and famed park gatherings.
The early Sunset events served as Galen’s creative outlet and a prime platform to perfect his technique. DJing meant extensive knowledge of music history, hard-earned vinyl collections, and truly intuitive mixing. Inspired by the psychedelic climate of the 90's San Francisco music scene Galen successfully grew himself into a household name that he maintains today, holding it down with the world’s top talent. His sets are thoughtful, yet never pre-planned, with artfully-timed track selections that spark any dance floor he touches, appealing to the old school just as much as the new.
ABOUT ALEX BLACKSTOCK
Resident DJ at Sui Generis (San Francisco) and co-founder of Concept SF.
Keeping sound texture and melodic rhythms up front, Blackstock's unique brand of "sexy minimal" has weaved an alternative groove through San Francisco's dance floors since the founding of deep tech and minimal-focused underground Less Is More at the infamous 222 Hyde club.
Concept is an experiment in musical communication.
Concept offers accomplished DJ's the opportunity to select a theme or idea - a concept - to interpret through music. The artist then presents that interpretation in a live set.
To support our audience in getting the most out of this performance, our intimate seated environment encourages the deep listening experience.
Liquore lounge, gallery, and art space located in the Design District - San Francisco.
Featuring the classic soundsystem from the beloved 222 Hyde.
