Brian Gardner :
For the past two decades, Brian has consistently performed throughout North America alongside some of the greats for packed crowds in internationally recognized venues. He dipped his hands into the realm of theater in 2000, when he worked with Asylum 137 on a dark theatre production featuring European and Native American clowning. The diverse soundtrack encompassed house, techno, classical opera, and a “cirque du soleil” style of music. Through ownership of Soul Foundation Recordings in Las Vegas, a highly respected collective of artists based in Chicago with a global following, Brian is dedicated to reviving what some would say has “been lost” in house music.
With productions on labels like Farris Wheel Recordings, Minuendo Recordings (Spain), RealDEEP Recordings, Thought Records & remixes on Black Error Recordings (SA) or his own imprint Soul Foundation Recordings, this Disc Jockey/Producer is undoubtedly tied to music as a part of his being. According to him, “Music is the only religion I have; it definitely saved me.” Whether Brian is spinning or producing, his sound is unmistakably from the soul…
Brenda D :
With over 17 years of experience on the decks, Brenda D. is a recognized name amongst the top DJ’s of the Chicago underground scene. If you know Chicago, its vast history and high standards for its disc jockeys, then you know that she is a cut above the rest. Her versatility and ability to adapt to the crowd, along with her flawless mixing skills, have landed her gigs in nearly every Chicago hotspot. She has played alongside all of Chicago’s hometown heroes and in various clubs and underground parties from coast to coast.
In 2005, Brenda put her marketing skills to the test by becoming one of the driving forces behind Soul Foundation’s city wide residences in Chicago at Venues such as, Darkroom and Moonshine. While in that role, Brenda oversaw the creative process of design, DJ bookings, online promotions, and event planning; all the while, she maintained her own DJ residencies and hosted various nightlife events. Currently, Brenda is responsible for Soul Foundation Recordings’ A&R division & promotions.
Stylistically, she beats a unique blend of sound, merging all of the strains of House to make the crowd move. No matter what Brenda plays on any given evening, you can bet that it will represent Chicago’s voice and soul to the fullest, while maintaining its underground integrity. Over the last 10 years, Brenda has contributed creatively in the studio. Not only has she collaborated with her husband and DJ partner Brian G, she’s recorded vocals with world renowned producer, Kate Simko (Spectral Sound, Hello? Repeat) with remixes by Tevo Howard, Bruno Pronsato & Daze Maxim. Be on the look-out for Brenda’s own debut EP in 2015.
