"This guy plays under the underground" - Anon
Rob Wright has been playing with electronic music equipment and producing tracks since 1987. He entered the rave scene back in 1991 doing visuals (VJ) for parties mostly located in Orange County and LA area. In the mid 90â²s Rob helped form The Unity Project which went on to throw a number of parties in the Southern California area. For a brief period (2001-2002) Rob moved up to Northern California. During this time he created and hosted a community access television show called ZEN tv. The shows format was based on KUCIâs Riders of The Plastic Groove. In 2003 Rob moved back down to So Cal to return to the entertainment industry. He currently runs the sound department at a successful video game developer in LA but spends most of his free time nurturing his pet project 3MT (3lectronic Music Technician). The primary focus of the 3MT project is expanded mobile live production. Rob has put together âthe rigâ to facilitate this goal. The rig consists of an 3MT stretcher mounted with a mixture of audio hardware and software solutions all running through an on board PA. You can think of the act as a sort of techno side show. When playing live, 3MTâs main focus is on Guerrilla performance. It all started with Robâs first gate crash back in 1998 at Nocturnal Wonderland. Since then he has performed at a number of shows. Speakerheads, Spaceland, Mr. Bubbles, Nocturnal Wonderland, JuJubeats, Coachella Music Festival are just to name a few.

Texas born Jamie Thinnes transplanted to the LA area as a young teenager and was quickly seduced by the intriguing sounds found in the wee hours, in the abundant warehouses, loft spaces and odd locations scattered throughout southern California. Early on, house music crept into Jamieâs soul and has been his guiding light ever since. Quickly becoming an underground favorite in the early â90s, Jamie forged his unique and captivating sound in a wide variety of Los Angeles environs â from full scale nightclubs to many a dark and dirty after-hours, from sunny beaches to ultra exclusive, all-night house parties. His trademark deep, spiritual rhythms and low frequency grooves never fail to keep the dancefloor marching in time to sunrise and beyond. A master mixer and programmer behind the decks, Jamieâs unwavering devotion to house shines through with every twist of the knob and every slide of the fader. In 1996, Jamieâs musical vision blossomed when he had the good fortune of becoming involved with the Long family, founders of the famed Higher Source Records establishment (arguably, the finest record store in the LA area from 1996 to 2003). With the generous hand of the Longs, Jamie and long time friend and collaborator, Dean DeCosta, founded Earthtones Recordings. After 10 highly regarded releases, Earthtones was forced to change its name due to trademark issues. As Dean became heavily involved in the record store, Jamie pushed on and Seasons Recordings was born. 15 years in existence, with a heavy catalog of class act releases featuring Franck Roger, Olivier Portal, John Cutler, Dj Spinna, Anto Vitale, Charles Webster, Boddhi Satva, Black Coffee and Jamie himself, to name a few, Seasons has truly evolved into one of the premier house music imprints worldwide. While countless other labels have faded away or tried to re-invent themselves with a new sound every few years, Seasons, and its revered Seasons Ltd. sub-label, have stood the test of time with consistent, quality house music thatâs based on an unshakeable foundation of musicality, soulful delivery and infectious grooves.
