WHO ARE URFRIENDS?
Two young guns emerge in the San Francisco DJ scene. Their rise to prominence are separate journeys, however their demand puts them in direct competition. It’s a few weeks away from Halloween and one promoter decides it’s time to put them together in one room with the same goal. Before you get to know what happens next, you have to understand who they are individually.
The Bay Area is home to some of the most outstanding talent to ever grace the turntables. Not one of them will ever disagree that Miles Medina was born to DJ. Lightning quick precision, melodic scratching, and effortless mind-blowing routines, are just a few things that has caused Miles Medina’s popularity to skyrocket. This prodigy first started DJing at the age of 10, creating a stir by winning DJ battles, and eventually brought in to play for 21+ clubs when he wasn’t even legal yet. Who else gets to say they played at LeDeux Hollywood when they were only 18? Miles Medina can.
What does Panic City mean? Only he can really tell you, but most would say Panic City is synonymous with energy. Dance floors erupt when this 26-year-old DJ/EDM producer steps behind the decks. This party rocking sensation may have a degree Marketing, but his blue-collar work ethic was responsible for his rise to the top of the ranks. While gaining residencies at the most exclusive clubs in the city, he taught himself how to produce music that would have the Internet buzzing. Now world-class DJ’s now play his music in nightclubs all over the world. Skill, production, and the owner of his own record label ‘BLACKLIGHTS MUSIC’ make Panic City a triple threat.
