Always a savant in the underground house music community, Jordan Strong has played a part in unifying the movement along the West Coast from Los Angeles to Seattle — and beyond. With over 27 years behind the decks Jordan is a master ninja of all house styles and the tracks he produces get play by some of his favorite DJ’s - friends and legends alike. An original resident DJ and now A&R Director for Seattle's iconic Uniting Souls Music, Jordan is also co-founder and resident DJ of the Los Angeles chapter of the legendary Housepitality. Recently Jordan moved to Honolulu to surf out the pandemic and has found himself a residency with the Centered Hawaii family. Jordan is also excited to launch his own label "Wave Machine" to share the blissed out open ocean air vibes with the world. To this day Jordan believes in house music's original message of peace and unity and continues to use his music as a voice for solidarity, social change, and self-realization.
BRIAN LYONS Brian is a Seattle house music pioneer and living legend.

https://soundcloud.com/lacy-elizabeth-newbold Performing underground and at club events in Seattle I might have you in a meditative state or stomping your feet. The idea is to invoke an imaginative journey in the mind and movement of the body with as much variety as life itself through organic and tribal house and trap/dub. Insta: @lacynew
aka Jessica Sandoval, is a Seattle rising star whose energy & vibe behind the decks are truly a joy to experience on the dance floor. We’re excited for her Diggin’ Deep debut!
Founder, owner, Events Director, label & A/R manager, and resident DJ at Uniting Souls Music.
Here are kind words which have been written about him in the press:
“Ramiro is an inextinguishable accelerant of Seattle’s house scene” - Seattle Weekly
“West Coast legend DJ Ramiro″
“If you’ve thought about house music in Seattle, you already know about Ramiro and Uniting Souls…” - The Stranger
“The soul-centric house swami surprised this listener with his dirty basslines on c89.5FM’s The Vortex” - Seattle Weekly
“Upon meeting Ramiro Gutierrez, with his soft-spoken and articulate demeanor, it doesn’t take long for me to pick up on how his love for what he does as the events director for Uniting Souls directly reflects on the quality of its events.” - The Stranger (Seattle's largest weekly)
“UNITING SOULS has contributed to setting standards as to what the Seattle electronic music community has to offer on a local & international level. It is because of organizations like Uniting Souls that Seattle is a favorite stop among touring electronic musicians. With e-mail, smart phones, cheap flights, declining costs in music production, and the explosion of information technology, the face of the global music community is rapidly changing, but it is collectives like Uniting Souls that are evolving right alongside to help define and retain humanness in the often impersonal world we’ve created.”
