Mozhgan (IR) – Saturday 13th October / Cafe Sånn
Iranian born but California based Artist/DJ Mozhgan has been honing her dark arts on the decks for quite some time. In 2011, when San Francisco clubs were distracted with other trends, she started “We Are Monsters,” a party to develop her passion for contemporary, dark, and mysterious dance floor sounds. As a resident DJ, Mozhgan helped curate an instantly recognizable sound and atmosphere that has become synonymous with the party and the acts she has booked to play there. Her affinity for 80’s synthesizers, vintage drum machines, ethnic rhythms, 303 inspired bass lines, and moody vocals has captured the attention of dancers and selectors at some of the Bay Area’s most respected parties and clubs. In 2015, her breakout sets for Honey Soundsystem and Sunset Sound System brought the worlds attention to her front door. Often touring alongside “We Are Monsters” resident Solar, Mozhgan found herself behind the decks at Berlin’s Panorama Bar, NYC’s Output, Burning Man’s Disco Knights, Paris’s Badaboom, and Wake Up Call Istanbul. Her stylized approach to dark discotheque-ing has also made it’s way into hearts with a series of hit mix tapes and live-sets released online. As the status-quo catches up to her eccentric taste in Cold Wave and Industrial beats, Mozhgan finds herself a seasoned veteran ready to take on new dance-floors.
