Tag Archives: Brando Commando

Early in 2012, Proof Bar in downtown Santa Ana will be host to local talent Brando Commando, Steven Ryback, aDJnamedCK, Neo Seo and Danielsan. You might remember Brando Commando as of one the guests from the first Habituate party back in September. You can catch his live recorded set from that night to hold you over until Jan. 5th and you can also find Steve Ryback’s remix of Bill Withers’ funk classic “Who is he?” a couple posts back.

The first ever Habituate event is upon us and I’m happy to say it encompasses all of the different aspects that I had hoped for when starting this blog. Quality dance music, creative people, and a regional focus on Orange County. The DJs I asked to play alongside me are all OC residents and more importantly quality selectors and production artists. As I’ve written in the “About” section of my blog the first Habituate event will keep in tune with the following aural/aesthetic appeal:

The music has to make the mind move before it moves the feet or body. A good night out is a unique situation not a cliche marketing scheme and house is a time and place, not just a 4 to the floor back beat!


More on the Artists/DJs


My main focus is to bridge the years and styles of dance music, I play tracks ranging from 1979 to 2011 that all coincide with the theme of extended rhythm and electronic production. I am the creator of this blog and it is my passion to introduce new sounds to the people of Orange County by interviewing international dance music artists, writing articles, reviewing new releases, showcasing local events, throwing my own parties, and holding a monthly residency called ZAP!



Loose Village (Loose Village Recordings, Strange Nature)

A quality production artist who just recently launched his own digital label internationally, Loose Village, is known for his unique tropical approach to house and his high energy sets. You may also remember Loose Village from the bi-weekly residency Strange Nature that he held with Brando Commando right here at Avalon Bar.



Brando Commando (No Come Down, Strange Nature)
Longtime purveyor of house in it’s many variations. Brando had his start as resident and co-founder of MNML, a techy house residency held at the Avalon Bar a number of years ago. He went on to become the brainchild of other parties such as Strange Nature and his most recent venture No Come Down.



Joshua Collins (Human Life, Defected)

A veteran house music producer from ’97 and now one third of the music group Human Life, Joshua Collins is up to his ears in music. He has released his original material and remixes on labels such as Defected, NRK and his own label frik:n:frak/Silent Machine recordings.
