About Q:
As a former Club Kid, DJ, remixer and music producer Quartknee is no stranger to night life. He migrated from LA’s punk scene to its nascent dance underground just as the foundations of House Music were being created. As a “Day One Raver,” he has been producing events on the Left Coast for over thirty years. Quartknee is a founding member of the Wicked Sound System and a mentor to many of dance music’s future legends. After his stint as the third wheel in the EDM band, Foxglüv, Quartknee doubled down on his behind-the-scenes activities. He has had some fantastic experiences over the years and now spends his time fictionalizing his adventures.
