"TH↓S" is the moniker & ever-evolving dream come true for California-native music producer & multi-instrumentalist, Josh Gronner.
Inspired by countless genre-defying artists, TH↓S music offers a culture crossing soundscape of live piano & acoustic instrumentation fused with heart shaking future bass composed & improvised by Josh & his growing family of collaborates.
Four years ago Josh's life forever changed when he was introduced to Fusion dancing. You & this incredibly supportive community of dancers have been a pivotal inspiration for TH↓S music ever since.
All of TH↓S is free & your's to download, stream, & share at trueTHIS.com.
Emily Webb has been social dancing since 1997, DJing since 2012, and is the is the co-creator of Mission Fusion and Tango Atipico in San Francisco. She never thought she would be a good DJ because she can’t remember the names of artist or songs. Turns out one can DJ a great set without that brain function! Through thousands of hours of social dancing and organizing events Emily has fine tuned her ear to what keeps people dancing all night long. The artistry of ordering songs, creating ebbs and flows, ups and downs, and dancer bliss is what Emily is after.
Since 2012, Emily has DJ’ed for Fusion and Alt Tango dancers across the US and Canada. Including events such as The Portland Alt Tango Festival, Seattle Fusion Festival, Mission Fusion Extravaganza, and Blues Recess.
Sapo is mostly appreciated for the eclectic side of her sets. She likes to travel back and forth between rootsy organic sounds and electronic ones, between very minimalist and busy stuff, between World-ish songs and North American ones. Head organizer of Montreal's first fusion event in July 2017, she started a fusion scene there in 2015. She's been the music coordinator for Montreal Bagel N Blues since 2009 and has Djed at DJX in Philly, Blues Muse, CTLX, Mystic Blues, Frankie’s 95th (blues late night), Melting Pot, Toronto Alchemy/DJX fusion weekend, Vancouver & Montreal blues & fusion dances.
Becca (AKA: DJ ‘Tega) is a genre-bender. She has been dancing for five years and is now equal parts teacher, dancer and DJ…all while pursuing a PhD! Her DJ style is dynamic and prioritizes fostering the deepest connection possible for those dancing to her sets. Her music features everything from ooey-gooey micro, to juicy remixes, to beautiful lyrical pieces. Her versatile style has earned her sets all over the west coast, Seattle Fusion Festival, Easter Swing, Mile High Blues, and The Fusion Project. She believes that a well-timed and crafted set can give any dancer emotional catharsis that can yield a dance high that lasts for hours. Her goal is to give everyone at least one “magic dance”, so be ready for some intense connection!
Anthony (Tony) Sciscio
Tony dove into the deep abyss of this world they call Fusion back in 2012. It now has a firm grasp on his soul, and he has Chosen not to search for escape. He now travels between Sacramento and The Bay Area far too often in attempts to merge the dance communities (aka The Tony Express?), satisfy his cravings, and create one ginormous Fusion Family. If there is dance floor present, expect at least part of Tony’s body to be on it. If he is spinning, expect to see him chained to the DJ booth, itching for your feels. If you hear strange sounds, there's a solid chance it will be coming from him...
Emiliano DJs at many events locally and nationally providing a groovy flavor of Blues, Lindy, and Fusion styles of music. He believes that a diverse set will challenge the dancers and make sure that they are listening with their minds and bodies. He also runs DJ Experiment which is an organization created to give DJs, musicians, and dancers a safe place to experiment and grow.
