Scratching the Surface: Doc Martin spins on June 23 at Jet Hotel
From the mid-'80s to the early '90s, San Francisco was a Shangri-La of house music. It's where impresarios like Doc Martin got their start or continued their careers. Martin began spinning records in the summer of 1986, playing legendary eight-hour sets at such clubs as Flammable Liquid and Sunday Love and making a name for himself as a versatile selector and eclectic mixer. His sets range from deep, sultry, vocal-centric tracks to lively, percussion-heavy tribal mixes. He tours constantly, all over the planet — and if you caught his set here in February, opening for Dubtribe, then you know he hasn't lost any of his edge through the decades. On Thursday, June 23, Team A.G. and SoJive are collaborating to bring him back for an intimate set at the Jet Hotel, with Atlanta's Ron Pullman and local favorites Frederick Gentry, Tony Rodelli, Ejay Toledo and more.
