HOUSEPITALITY w/ Dayjob, Clint Stewart, Czboogie, B Majik & Vic Vega
( ( ( ( (H O U S E P I T A L I T Y) ) ) ) ) brings heat from the island state on this Labour Day special, with the west coast debut from the creators of Hawaii’s most infamous afterhours, rounded out by some of the best and most hard working talent from both SF and Chicago:
::DAYJOB (Asylum, Get Physical, Dirtybird, Surface| Hawaii)::
::CLINT STEWART (Safeword, Mobilee, Bad Animal, Poker Flat | SF)::
::CZ BOOGIE (5 Mag, Smart Bar, Grandbar, Untouchables | Chicago)::
::B Majik (SF)::
::Victor Vega (Housepitality | SF)::
As usual, Housepitality has scouted far and wide, beyond the borders of the continental US (this time all the way to Hawaii) in order to find the finest techno and house music for our fans, this time by bringing a debut performace from a breakout new talent: Dayjob.
When true partiers on the island state want to hear the best house and techno music from the hottest acts in the biz, they know exactly where to go: the Asylum afterhours. Located in Honolulu, Asylum is an exclusive members-only affair, offering members the chance to see the world’s best talent in an quality underground atmosphere. As is often the case with parties such as these, the resident DJs, working hard and refining their talents week after week, end up growing larger than the confines of their home, and break through to the world stage: that’s what’s happened here. Dayjob is the production alias of Asylum residents Loic Tambay and Willis Haltom, two DJs who have separately had releases out on Get Physical, Dirtybird, and Surface recordings.
On this Labour Day (Americans may have to look this up), Housepitality has rounded out our lineup with some of the hardest working DJs from our home cities of SF and Chicago. Clint Stewart needs no introduction. With his production/DJ duo Safeword (with Marc Smith), he’s had music released on some of the biggest and baddest labels of the moment (Mobilee, Bad Animal, Poker Flat, to name a few), and has already become a household name in the minds of the worldwide techno elite. Clint’s talents as a DJ and producer are simply undeniable, and we’re lucky to get a chance to host him once again.
Finally, rounding out the lineup, Chicago’s CZBoogie, aka Czarina Mirani. CZBoogie has was initially an actor and dancer, albeit one who harbored an obsession for house music. Eventually turning to DJing, she was influenced by the cream of the crop of Chicago’s house icons, and eventually she went on to start 5 Mag, America’s only music magazine entirely devoted to house music. She holds residencies at several of Chicago’s most tasteful house clubs (Smartbar and Grandbar, among others), and is now a house heavyweight among heavyweights, coming as she does from one of house’s homelands. We’re honored to bring her to our professional midweek house crew.
In the Groove Lounge, B Majik, and Housepitality’s own Victor Vega, will keep things on a funky, slightly slower tip.

Dayjob is the production alias of Willis Haltom and Loic Tambay. Resident djs at the internationally known asylum afterhours in Honolulu, they respectively had remixes on Get physical, Dirtybird, and Halo’s Surface recordings. The future looks very bright with more original music coming out on the newly founded Asylum Confidential label and remixes for various others.
Born in Switzerland, Loic is now nested in paradise and is fast becoming one of Hawaii’s most forward thinking DJ. With residencies at the island’s newest after-hours club Asylum, and the posh Lotus Soundbar, located in the heart of Waikiki, and with increasing international bookings, this up and coming talent is definitely a name to look out for. Known for flawless mixing, choice of deep, funky and throbbing beats, alongside exclusive productions and edits, his sets are a perfect choice for those who enjoy a more underground vibe to dance to. His roster include a radio show on one of the internet’s most busy electronic music hang-out; DigitallyImported.com. You can catch repeats of his show ‘Symphonic Travels’ still on rotation at www.di.fm. With production work in the process of release, the future looks bright for this young DJ. Catch him in the act any chance you get!
Over the course of the last 10 years Willis Haltom has been able to play with some of the biggest names in Dance music from around the Globe. Whether it is Josh Wink, The Crystal Method, or Claude Von Stroke, Willis has been able to hold his own amongst dance music’s heavy weights. Since Moving to Hawaii 6 years ago he has really been able to influence what kind of sound people are hearing on the islands, first with his first residency at NextDoor in Honolulu and next with the opening of his club, Asylum Afterhours. Since opening Asylum with his partners he has been able to play with some of dance music’s most exciting and forward thinking producers. Names like Troy Pierce, DJ T., Justin Martin, Pan Pot, Lee Foss, Heartthrob, Droog, Bill Patrick, Tim Green, Tanner Ross, Sian, have all graced the decks and Willis has been blessed to play with them as well. 2010 was a breakout year for Willis, which included playing dates at Spybar in Chicago, 222 Hyde and the Endup in San Francisco, and the famed Culprit Sessions parties atop the Standard hotel in Los Angeles. With more focus in 2011 on production and continued enthusiasm towards the scene and djing in Honolulu keep your eyes on this rising talent.
In just under five years Clint Stewart has carved out a reputation as a rising musical talent gaining accolades with a growing catalogue of charismatic productions and diverse DJ sets. Since a breakout set at San Franciscos Lovefest in 2007 acclaim has been mounting worldwide for Clint as a DJ, producer and as part of an elite group of core artists holding a residency at one of the most desired destinations in the States, 222 Hyde.
Clints captivating DJ sets can go from deep and moody to heavy and twisted. While consistently maintaining a foundation in dynamics and range, the music always celebrates the diversity of people, music and environment encountered. His reputation has placed him at the world-renowned Dance Under the Blue Moon radio show with Anja Schneider as well as acclaimed Berlin clubs including Tresor, Arena Club, Bar 25, and Watergate – where he closed the night by rocking into the afternoon with an 8 hour set at the opening party for the 2010 Love Parade.
Clints productions speak of a similar style and range. His solo work as well as Safeword, a recent project with production partner Marc Smith, immerses you in an extensive palette of sounds. With Safewords engaging live set, a current release on Paso Music that is getting widespread play from DJs worldwide and upcoming releases on Berlin giant Poker Flat all signs point to exciting things to come for the duo. Solo remixes on Mexican label Pantamuzik, Belgium imprint Sirius Pandi, and collaborations with Alland Byallo on Amam and a debut solo ep on Byallos forthcoming label Bad Animal all suggest a dynamic artist with an ear to the future.
