DJ Susan

Get ready for Syrah’s special event with San Diego powerhouse DJ Susan!
“This tech house maven gets his kicks from big builds, heavy drops and gritty baselines. Driven by relentless energy and a knack for getting the party started, Steven Glathe has pushed his name to new boundaries since assuming his alias. Since breaking ground, the DJ/ Producer has led a commendable legacy of captivating performances and productions releasing music on both local and international labels. By far the biggest contribution to the Dj’s likeness however is his position in running his label “Hood Politics Records”. The label has had an absolutely killer run since establishing itself in September of 2017, serving the best of the underground across the globe.” Make sure to make it to this exclusive performance Friday March 22nd!
