All of us at Habit are really excited about this months party, featuring local favorite's Moniker and Christian Mora. Resident duo Bells & Whistles will ease you into the night with their saultry Deep Tech House sound, perfect for setting the mood. Up next, Christian Mora will take over the decks, and push the dance floor to the next level. And finally, Moniker will finish off the night right with their truly unique and captivating live set. Hauling a smorgasbord of analog gear to the top of the Sir Franics Drake Hotel, these two musical pioneers will perform a perfect dance of inspiring melodies, backed by a constant rhythm of musical experience. So on this cold December night, remember that heat rises to the 21st floor of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel.
MONIKER (Live PA)
Moniker came into being in 2007, the mutated incestuous child of Kenneth Scott and Emilio Orlandi. A conversation about vintage analog gear while soaking up San Francisco's late night techno sounds brought them together in the studio, leading to incessant knob twiddling and all night jams. They both come from different and varied musical backgrounds. Emilio is a Bay Area native, active in the SF underground house/techno scene for over ten years, Kenneth grew up in Iowa listening to IDM and Chicago House. They strike a balance in their collaborations, Kenneth's digital tangents being tempered by EO's chunky analog foundations.
Their DJ sets are sweaty jacking affairs, psychedelicly fun, intellectual and dirty. Expect the same from their gear heavy live sets.

(Bang The Box)
Christian's story has only begun to be written. After getting his start in 1995, he began to make a name for himself by playing undergound parties, mantaining residencies, and organizing full-moon parties all across Mexico. After making the move to San Francisco in 2000, he started working at the now defunct Nemesis distributor, helping to service dance music stores across the states as well as his own record store. By melding Techno and House into his own signature blend, his good ear and taste for music has allowed him to DJ not only in Mexico, but Spain, Holland, Japan and the across the States. Today he is part of Bang the Box along with Solar and Lance Desardi which is a monthly event as well as a bangin' Underground. In addition, he and Sammy D are bringing LoveLetters, a monthly that is all about the Underground sound.

Bells & Whistles
Two kids in their early twenties coming up in a rapidly growing scene here in San Francisco. They've started their first monthly party call DRESSCODE, bringing house and techno talent from all over the world, to the top of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel, 21 floors up at Harry Denton's Starlight Room. They've played along side people like Claude VonStroke, Tim Green, Bruno Pronsato, Maetrik, Coalition Of The Killing, Clint Stewart, Alland Byallo, Franklin De Costa, and more. Gigs are starting to pop up more frequently now for these two young DJ's, like the Porker Flat 10 year anniversary party with Steve Bug and John Tejada @ the Mezzanine. Lately the Duo has been in the studio working on some tracks so be sure to keep an eye out for these two in 2010 .
