LA-based DJ & Producer, PÄNCH (@goldcollar), was raised in the NY Metro Area during the glory days of Hip-Hop. Here, his love for female vocals, four to floor beat patterns, and raw hip-hop lyrics shaped his foundation and ear for music. A few years after college he took an Art Director gig on the West Coast and moved to LA.
Within months, he fell in love with the underground LA electronic scene, which opened a whole new world full of deep house and techno. Parties like Culprit Rooftop Sessions, Voodoo, Making Shapes, and A Club Called Rhonda inspired him to DJ and produce. PÄNCH partnered with fellow LA resident Josué Negrón to form the duo MUCHO.
Over the past year, PÄNCH has played at Coachella, LA clubs like Avalon and has recently started his own monthly party called “Goin' Up on A Tuesday,” where you can catch him playing anything from funk to deep house.
This Friday he’s mashing up the early elements of proper hip-hop with today’s techno and deep house. Enjoy, and happy F
