07.01 Nonfiction (Focus LA) Plays the Whiskey Bar
If it’s one thing he’s sure of, it’s that Nonfiction isn’t going any where, he’s here to stay. He’s been in the game way too long and experienced too many amazing nights that turned into amazing mornings. Too many amazing vibes both on the dance floor and behind the decks to even consider doing anything else.
Djing for over 19 years, Nonfiction is a well respected festival regular and a 13 year resident of the world famous house club, Focus in Newport Beach with his partner and good friend Josh Billings. When not djing or producing, heavy doses of Hip Hop, Classic Rock, Funk, and Reggae all contribute to his style and sound and continue to influence him heavily.
Music production has more recently become an equally important outlet for his expression. A lot of the music he produces, he uses exclusively in his own sets to set him apart from the pack. If you want to hear those songs, he’s the only one who has them. His actual official releases include remixing the mighty Green Velvet twice (“The Percolator” / “Millie Vanilli”), and releasing music on legendary labels Relief, Cajual, Farriswheel, Robsoul and now on his own label, UDM Records.
He’s seen the trends come and go, but, he’s dedicated himself to the culture and knows that this is his life calling. No one can predict the future, but you can safely assume that Nonfiction will still be djing and dedicated to music for as long as he lives.

07.09 Johnny Yono
Mission Trance Presents
Doors Open 10pm
21+ w/ Valid I.D.
31 NW 1st Ave.
An artist in every sense of the word, Johnny Yono brings all the passion and charisma that great musicians are made out of. Born and raised in the suburbs outside of Detroit, Michigan Johnny led a very active upbringing, dabbling in everything from ice hockey to playing drums in rock bands before pursuing an acting career. Following his high school years, he was drawn in to Motor City’s rave scene and through Detroit’s legendary underground dance culture, Johnny’s love for electronic music began to blossom.
At the time however, acting was Johnny’s primary focus and in his early twenties, he set out to Los Angeles to pursue the grand dream of making it on the big screen. Johnny landed numerous roles in TV shows and independent films and managed to keep himself afloat but, continued to indulge in LA’s ever-growing electronic music industry. Having been inspired by Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Sasha & Digweed and many more, Johnny could no longer ignore his true calling. He assembled a small studio and began producing dance music. After experimenting with a variety of sounds, he finally planted himself in the realm of Trance and has remained ever since.
Turning heads with his breakout single, ‘Fairfax’ — Johnny established himself as a name to watch out for after signing with UK’s powerhouse Trance label, Enhanced Recordings. The track received massive support from many artists including Armin van Buuren on ‘A State Of Trance’ and Markus Schulz on ‘Global DJ Broadcast’ where it was named the “Global Selection”. Following the aftermath of ‘Fairfax’, Johnny continued a streak of releasing quality dance tracks ever since. From the energetic, Tech-Trance monster, ‘The Machine’ (with Juventa) to his numerous classics on Lange Recordings such as ‘Orion’ and ‘Exodus’ and flexing his versatility with his debut 138 single, ‘Pulverize’, Johnny has established himself as one of the genre’s brightest up and coming talents. Over the recent years, he’s made his mark on renown industry imprints such as Armada Music, Euphonic Records, Garuda Music, Damaged Records and Perfecto Records, where he not only remixed Paul Oakenfold’s covers of the classics, ‘Barber’s Adagio For Strings’ and ‘Hold That Sucker Down’ but, also released his first EP, ‘Poison Whispers’ which received numerous plays from Armin van Buuren on ‘A State Of Trance’ as well as support from Ferry Corsten, Mark Sherry, Lange, Andy Moor, Simon Patterson and many others.
As a DJ, Johnny has shared the stage with many key players on the forefront of Trance including Dash Berlin, Ferry Corsten, Aly & Fila, Andrew Rayel, W&W, Cosmic Gate, Lange, Omnia, Kyau & Albert, Tritonal, Solarstone, Alex M.O.R.P.H., Jordan Suckley, Photographer and more. He’s no doubt among the most promising rising stars in Trance music today and certainly one to keep on your radar in the coming years.
You can catch his monthly radio show, ‘White Light Sessions’ every 2nd Tuesday of the month on Digitally Imported (DI.FM).
