11 DJs and Producers Reviving San Francisco’s Scene

There's a lot going on in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here are some of the artists making the scene as exciting as it was in the '90s.

The San Francisco Bay Area has played an important role in American dance music since the 1990s, when its unique blend of hippie paganism, liberal politics and high-tech futurism collided in a healthy rave scene and famous parties like Wicked and Toon Town. After a few (of what we perceived to be) somewhat-less-inspired years for local dance music after the turn of the new millennium, the Bay has once again proved to have fertile soil for house and techno producers. A growing number of artists from the region have hit our radar in recent months, so we thought it was time for a round-up of some of our favorites. With help from fast-rising DJ and producer Matrixxman—who supplied us with a guide to some of his favorite synths, drum machines and music gear just last month—here are eleven producers making waves in and around San Francisco.
