Based out of the Bay Area, Miss Dre is known for her stunning vocals and as a fierce DJ/producer. She’s garnered the support of several house music staples such as Gene Faris, Justin Martin, and J.

Doing what she does best, she had the crowd in the palm of her hand with her no-nonsense mixing style. By the end of Miss Dre’s set, the venue was close to full. Her sound brought a fresh variation to the night while still satisfying the house craving Kyle Watson fans came for.

Chapter and Verse released his first single in 2020 and has since become one of the fastest-rising UK producers in the scene. He’s received accolades from the likes of Sonny Fedora and Gorgon City.
Known for his masterful production, Chapter and Verse did not disappoint on Saturday night by bringing forward exceptionally clean mixing.
