Since forming in January 2006, Honey Soundsystem has brought new style and edge to the San Francisco dance scene. A collective created in the spirit of the legendary bay area crews, Honey has been making their own scuff marks on today’s dancefloors while spreading the gospel of SF’s rich dance music history. “We are a collective of disc jockeys, musicians, performers and designers. We bond over our shared love of timeless sound, iconic imagery, the complete look, indulgent behavior, and most of all, attractive men.”
Their influence and focus has been felt worlwide by DJs and promoters alike. Their insurmountable energy and commitment to detail bridges gender gaps and sexual orientations, as their dancefloor became a necessary haven for freaks, geeks, bears, twinks, club kids, plain-janes and industry vagabonds.
Honey has been instrumental in the formation of three record labels; Dark Entries, Discaire, and HNYTRX – the in-house label for special one off releases. Their recent HNYTRX/Dark Entries release of Patrick Cowley’s “School Daze” garnered the #1 Best Reissue of 2013 at Juno Records.
The Honey Soundsystem weekly Sunday party had an epic 5 year run, and they hosted DJ’s from around the world, including Todd Terje, Prosumer, Steffi, Hawke aka Gavin Hardkiss, Tim Sweeney, Horse Meat Disco London, Silent Servant, Part Time Punks, Kim Ann Foxman, Bicep, Mr. Ties, Stefan Goldmann, KiNK, Optimo, Hercules & Love Affair, Discodromo, Cosmo Vitelli, DJ Spun, Daniel Wang, Shits & Giggles, Derek Plaslaiko, Session Victim, Ben Aqua, MVSCLZ, Anthony Mansfield, DJ Garth, Bottin, Eric Duncan, My Cousin Roy, Nick Chacona, Lady Blaktronika, Steve Fabus, Neon Leon, and A Club Called Rhonda, Mister Saturday Night DJs, Aaron Clark, Bil Todd, Nikita….
Honey continues to throw parties in (and around) SF, and you can find them online, on stage at a festival, or in a record store near you.
Since May of 2013, The NeedlExchange has been steadily growing as the go-to Sunday night spot for cunning dance music and good, open-armed vibes. Comprised of Bil Todd, Philip Goyette, Tommy Cornelis & Baronhawk, their focus has been on sustaining a positive environment where all genders and sexual orientations can co-exist and dance under the umbrella of both new and classic sounds. Their programming runs the gamut of house, disco, techno, funk and anything else that sounds good.
Flash is the first and only club in North America to feature Full Fat Audio amplifiers, paired with a digitally processed, fully active, 4-way stereo Funktion-One sound system with over 30,000 peak watts. The state-of-the-art lighting system is combined with an intimate, dancer friendly dancefloor, flanked by cozy alcoves with deep, lush seating.
