S T E V E . L O R I A
West coast legendary DJ, considered by most as one of the driving forces responsible for the start of the Los Angeles electronic music scene and an integral part in the development of the West Coast house scene as a whole.

For the last 19 years Steve has traveled the globe playing along side many of the world’s premier djs in many of the world’s top clubs.

Steve has headlined countless of legendary clubs and events such as, Together as One, Bang the Drum, EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival), Unlock the House, By the People, The Gathering, and Freedom Festival. His most extraordinary moments include a 5 hour sunrise set overlooking the Pyramids of Teotihuacan in Mexico City, spinning techno-house tunes to a massive crowd inside the Brooklyn Bridge, and who could forget his wicked 4 hour set in the middle of the Nevada Desert, for Desert Move Las Vegas.

Los Angeles born and bred, Vangelis and Vidal Vargas were raised in the ’80s on a steady diet of Latin freestyle, electro, and new wave that pervaded their urban environment. Their father also exposed them to cutting edge progressive acts Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk, planting early seeds for aural exploration. By the mid ’90s they were sampling LA’s underground club scene and heavily researching electronic music’s roots. After years of influence they began to express their musical vision through their own recordings and performances. Vidal and Vangelis eventually found common ground with producer / performer Drumcell, and in 2002 they formed the Droid Behavior event production group and record label out of frustration with the city’s lack of knowledge, acceptance, and understanding for Midwest-bred techno and house music and their European counterparts.
Since its inception, the Droid-produced “Interface” party series has hosted and debuted such artists as Chris Liebing, Surgeon, Speedy J, DBX, Modeselektor, Sandwell District, Jimmy Edgar, Jahcoozi, Vexx’d, DJ Hyperactive, Matthew Dear, Xtrak, Kenny Larkin, Neil Landstruum, Hearthrob, Ambivalent and countless others in Los Angeles.
As producers Vangelis and Vidal have released and licensed original music and remixes under various aliases (most notably Acid Circus and Raíz) on the Droid Recordings imprint as well as respected labels Historia y Violencia, Tora Tora Tora, DJMag, Music Man, Resident Advisor, Enemy Rec, and Timefog. Their music has been charted, played and supported by Richie Hawtin, Speedy J, Chris Liebing, Ellen Allien, Adam Beyer, Jonas Kopp, etc.
Their intense and inspiring performances have placed them alongside major players Jeff Mills, Juan Atkins, Magda, and Claude Von Stroke at undergrounds, festivals, after-hours, and club nights from North America to Berlin.
Raíz fully harness the capabilities of Traktor, Ableton, and Maschine technology to create a thick blend of Detroit techno and house. They take cues from years of classical training to infuse dynamic musical expression with a delicate balance of mixing board acrobatics and symbiotic intuition. Years of production experience inform their Live PA / Digital DJ hybrid approach, which uses each track’s core essentials to form a narrative arch for every unique set. Their releases follow suit and take only key elements from each rhythmic style to shape simplistic and deep music that captures their diverse influences and personal impressions.
