De-Lite Resident DJs Malachi and Tek-Neek 

DJ B-Style's musical 'taste' could be compared to a big, tasty, eclectic pot of gumbo. This dj from Oakland was born into a party household, where music and dancing was the foundation of the family soul. When the party began it was hard to stop and his ears were baptized early on to the constant bump of Disco, Electronica and Hip Hop records along with the soulful and hypnotic sounds of R&B, Funk, and Soul music of the 70's and 80's and into the 90's. Music has always been the major escape, whether writing or producing and taking an audience into his world as a dj. B-Style’s ability as a selector to blend so many different flavors across your musical palette.

 

DJ Mark Maiden has spent more than a decade playing at many bay area night clubs and bars alongside legendary bay area DJs. He has held multiple residencies and is known for such parties as It’s Great to Be Here, Hooked, and Re-Fresh. Representing the Rockit City DJs and Nodphonics Crew, Mark is a crowd reading expert, specializing in mixing tracks that get you dancing and nodding your head regardless of genre, tempo, style, creating the perfect soundtrack of your night.
