Southern California-based dj and producer Nonfiction is a rapidly rising force in the U.S. house music scene. He’s a 7 year resident at the world renowned club Focus in Newport Beach, and a regular addition to the LA underground parties such as Dynagroove, Tropical, F.A.M.I.L.Y. and Sublevel.

Nonfiction’s original tunes and remixes can be found on world renowned house labels such as Relief, Casual, Robsoul and Bump Music(Australia). He also has several releases on such labels as Farriswheel, Lost My Dog, Dj Sneak’s Oomph Recordings, Candy Music, Deepfunk Records and countless others.

Nonfiction started his dj career as a mobile hip hop dj back in 1997 when he moved from Los Angeles to Orange County. After devoting 5 of his years to learning the essentials (beat matching, phrasing scratching/turntablism), playing local house parties and clubs, he felt the itch to be more of a performer than a “human jukebox.” Having had a close connection with house music and techno since the early 90’s…the transition from hip hop to house was a natural one for him.

From 1998-2003 Nonfiction played at several raves and local club nights, putting on his own events as well. It is here that he dove in head first and became immersed in the scene, playing tech/Chicago house and continued fine tuning his skills behind the decks.

In 2004 Nonfiction was added to to Focus roster and has been a resident ever since. Sharing the decks with such heavyweights as Derrick Carter, Doc Martin, Miguel Migs, Ian Pooley DJ Heather, Diz, Kaskade, Gene Farris and of course his very talented fellow residents (Wobs and Josh Billings). It is here that Nonfiction has truly grown as a dj and an artist.
