•Richard Larsen- co-producer/writer/keyboardist/guitarist- A refugee from the eclectic Chicago scene, Richard came to Los Angeles to work as a producer at Quango Records. He also worked with DJ Krust on the "Konkrete Jungle" Compilation on Ultra Records, and did the Tulku remixes released on Triloka. Delphine Simonis of LA's KPFK calls The Mighty One (Richard's Inspiration), "a cross between Mark Farina, Amon Tobin, J.S. Bach and Anouar Brahem, all in one". Trained in the classics, Rachmaninoff and Orbit, Richard Larsen's program is hardly retro.
•Jennifer Cook- co-producer/writer/keyboardist/guitarist- Her mother was an accordian player who had lofty dreams of being a gypsy dancer in cali, colombia. She married a farmer gone airforce academy cadet and moved to Bakersfield to have a couple kids for who she bought pianos and guitars. They had living room shows for friends and family until one day they thought it was time to take it on the road. A multi-instrumentalist and full-time member of URB's Next 100 collective Elephonic, Jennifer has opened for Lee Scratch Perry, Slick Rick & Ghostface Killah, Rocky Dawuni, Wax Poetic, The Nortec Collective, Brazzaville, Shaun Escofferey, DJ Heather, Presto, Rylo, Tony Watson, Cathy Tamkin, Raul Campos, Greyboy, and X-Centric Sound System. She is now co-inventor of KCRWs recently added UNA, an experiment in Latin, blues, trip hop and soul.---
•Eddie Barajas- DJ-A first generation Mexican-American, he has had an obsession with music since his first recollections, thanks to his family's love affair with mariachi. Rounding his musical upbringing were his two older brothers introducing their baby brother to "the" as a prefix; Rolling Stones, Doors, Beatles, Who, Pretenders, Clash, Police, amongst others and Mtv. His high school years were blessed with the inception of an electronic music station MARS FM and treated to the likes of Swedish Egil, Tony Largo, and others. Another favorite show was 'Illicit Groove' on KXLU radio hosted by DJ Sonic, now Jason Bentley. These shows schooled him in underground music that would prove to be the foundation for his appreciation of the mighty DJ, and a style of music that he came to know as HOUSE music.Since his college years as music director of Occidental College’s radio station KOXY, Eddie has played along side Doc Martin, DJ Heather, Lance Desardi, JT Donaldson, Chuck Daniels, The Littlemen (UK), Special Interest (UK), Fries & Bridges (France, US), Marques Wyatt, Andrew Macari, Diz, Jason Hodges, The Rurals, and Slater Hogan/John Larner. He has deejayed in cities such as San Diego, San Francisco, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and Hawaii and is currently holding two residencies at Los Angeles venues, Circus and King King. His current projects include the HAWT, a refuge for househeads that he has hosted for over a year. Spinning house and downtempo in the vein of Mark Farina’s Motion Jazz and he’s ready to go world wide.
