Mark Farina
Mark Farina has solidified himself in the world of Dance Music as a trailblazing DJ, Producer, tastemaker and bona fide House Music icon. After 3 decades crisscrossing the globe, he shows no signs of slowing down remaining innovative, humble, and firmly rooted in the underground.

“I look at my job as a ‘modern day traveling minstrel’ bringing new music to as many places as I can and exposing audiences to obscure records that otherwise might go hidden.”

As an early House Music pioneer in the late 80’s, Farina’s history includes an impressive long standing residency at Smart Bar Chicago and a job at the legendary Gramaphone Records. In the 90s, Mark pushed musical boundaries and blended genres to create “Mushroom Jazz”. Eventually, Mark made San Francisco his home as his signature sound created a strong demand for his DJ sets. The Bay Area proved to be a perfect match for Mark’s musical vision and he released a string of major mix compilations including his Mushroom Jazz series. With a tireless passion for playing extended sets, B2B shows with fellow House Music icons, or playing both of his signature styles on 2 stages on the same night, Farina continues to entertain his incredible fans all over the globe with over 100 shows per year.

Currently, Farina is the head honcho at his record label, Great Lakes Audio Recordings. Next up in 2018 are residencies at House of Yes (NY), Grasshopper Underground (MI), and Site 1A (MKE).
Typefunk
Typefunk
Typefunk (Yokchi Chang) is the co-founder of Nightfreq. As a worldwide tastemaker and Head of visual marketing for Nighfreq, Typefunk oversees all artists bookings, and event planning for Nightfreq events while always digging for the future night frequencies.

A lover of music and a visionary in his own right, Type “Do What You Love” Funk sees no obstacles in his path, creatively problem-solving as he approaches every situation with compassion and an open mind. Typefunk's commitment to increasing visibility for good music and educating the public is achieved through the monthly events that Nightfreq has achieved since 2009.

When Typefunk hits the stage you can expect to hear styles, melodies and rhythms slipping the grid and blurring beautifully into one another. Grounded in hip-hop but equally comfortable wandering further afield, the effect is immersive and progressive, with timeless sounds wrapped around future-soul/funk, disco, jazz, bass, house, and gauzy electronics.
