Headlining the Club Level, we welcome back Goldcap. The LA-based DJ has frequented dance floors such as Do Not Sit on the Furniture in Miami, Papaya Playa Project in Tulum, Day Zero, SXM festival, and played legendary b2b sets with Sabo at Burning Man. Goldcap’s music has roots based in multiple genres with a vision to deliver an organic sound throughout his sets and productions in hopes of connecting people to the cultures and knowledge of music-past, instruments, and spoken word. You will often hear him incorporating an eclectic array of samples in his sets. Goldcap will be joined by birthday boy and DC’s very own Dastan, who is making waves as a resident DJ for The Soundgarden label.
The Green Room will feature Parisian Wlad & Mancini. While Wlad founded the hedZup records, together they manage and promote the label that has reached top rankings in its category. Their showcase of the same name has invited artists such as Archie Hamilton, iO Mulen, DJ Steaw, and Diego Krause among others. Their success through the label and showcases landed the opportunity to export the evening to the magical island of Ibiza. On Saturday, May 27th they will bring their signature hedZup sound, while Goldcap and Dastan rock our beloved Funktion one equipped Club Level.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Goldcap's (Berge Sahakian) roots in music are based in an eclectic pool of genres since his earliest ages. Listening to everything from classic rock, traditional indian, orchestra, and reggae, to classical, metal, west-african, and middle-eastern styles of music. From youth, having picked up instruments like the electric/acoustic guitar, bass guitar, classical piano, and various different percussion instruments, it was only natural for him to incorporate an organic feel into his musical selections. Also being a fan of poetry, films, ambient sounds, traditional instruments, and the spoken word, you will often find him incorporating an eclectic array of samples into his sets.
Dastan translates to story or legend. His goal is always to take you on a trip & to get lost with you in the music....As a lover of the fantasy of it all, He’s been playing in and around DC for the last four years, as well as a few special places abroad including for Tomorrowland festival in belgium and Burning Man. Always finding himself on the darker side of deep house/techno his sets dance to a strong middle eastern and tribal flair.
WLAD is a French DJ / producer and the founder of the hedZup Records label. Of Parisian origin, he grew up in a family of music lovers. Cradled between Jazz, Disco and Flamenco, he learnt to play different percussions. This former breakdancer was passionate about vinyls that he collected from his teenage years, so became a hip hop dj thanks to the arrival of the French Touch and all these talented artists who made him famous all over the world. They inspired him and gave him the desire to embark on a career as an international DJ producer. After several years of residence as a DJ in Saint Tropez in the summer, then Miami and New York in the winter, he decided to take a break and went on a backpacking trip around the world for two years to discover the different cultures of this world. On the strength of this trip, he returned full of multi-cultural energy and inspiration. He returned to Paris and at the same time founded the hedZup records label and the famous monthly showcases of the same name in 2015. He invited artists like Archie Hamilton, iO Mulen, DJ Steaw, Diego Krause and many others that performed on the famous concert stage, the New Casino and then even had the opportunity to export the evening to the magical island of Ibiza!

From Paris, France, Mancini has always been attracted by music. First inspired by Rock, he started playing guitar in a band, and then slowly discovered electronic music at the end of the 90's. The idea of playing his own music selection and making people dance was dangerously growing in his mind! In 2001, a meeting on a beach will convince him to buy his turntables. Through the years, his style matured. Gimmick, sensibility but mostly rhythms define the best his House music vision! His dj sets are a spontaneous mixture of grooves fuelled by his crowd’s reaction. He has played alongside famous djs as Jamie Jones, Dyed Soundorom, Miss Kittin, Archie Hamilton, iO Mulen, Cab Drivers, Diego Krause, Robert Owens, Losoul... In september 2016, in a desire of pure freedom, he decided to launch his own vinyl label simply named “Mancini”. Handstamped and limited releases, its have reached the first places on the vinyls charts of Deejay, Decks shops several times and been played by the likes of Apollonia, Enzo Siragusa, Archie Hamilton, Seb Zito, Ferro, Djebali, Chris Carrier... He is now managing and promoting with Wlad the vinyl and digital label hedZup records, that is knowing a great ascension in the Minimal House world. The best is yet to come!
