Enter Dulce Vita (pronounced dol-sie/vee-tah). True individuality happens here as a result of a musical risk.
Since her debut performance at Google headquarters in 2004, you might have already experienced her audio collage of eclectic tracks at underground warehouse venues or major nightclubs such as Ruby Skye, The End-Up, 1015, Supper Club, Mighty, Mezzanine, Kelly's Mission Rock, DNA Lounge, Temple, Club 6, Paradise Lounge, 550 Barneveld, Shine, Anu, Whisper, etc. Dulce considers any single performance a personal success if she can make a deeply positive impact on at least one person's experience. In recent past, Dulce was named WINNER of SF Weekly: City of Spin 2009 (Annual DJ Competition) and her performance at Burning Man earned a prestigious mention by the Editor-in-Chief in international publication 'DJ Mag' (2008 issue featuring Top 100).
Dulce Vita booked nearly 100 performances as a DJ in 2009. Based on witnessed live performance, she has received personal accolades direct from personal heroes like Micky Finn, DJ Dan, Soul of Man, Meat Katie, Josh Gabriel, Dave Dresden, Slyde, and Reid Speed. In addition to sharing the bill with those headliners, she has been proud to play alongside greats such as: Ozomatli, Carl Cox, Stanton Warriors, Uberzone, Bassnectar, Freq Nasty, Dieselboy, Aquasky, Lee Coombs, Dylan Rhymes, Rennie Pilgrem, Elite Force, Wolfgang Gartner, Far Too Loud, Fort Knox Five, The Rogue Element, Hyper, Orbital, Rabbit in the Moon, Dubtribe Sound System, Bass Kleph, Gabriel & Dresden, Jen Lasher, Shortee, Mephisto Odyssey, Ali B, Coburn, Steve Lawler, Scumfrog, D:Fuse, Scarlett Etienne, Hatiras, Fixx, Myagi, Cheb i Sabbah, Random Rab, Ana Sia, ILL-esha, Beats Antique, Eskmo, Eprom, An-ten-nae - as well as a countless number of talented local jocks.
Dulce has held numerous prior residencies at night clubs as a DJ all over San Francisco. In 2006, she was proud to be selected as the first female to be affiliated with 'OPULENT TEMPLE' (the infamous large-scale sound camp at Burning Man featuring global talent on 200,000 watts). In 2009, she was invited to wobble out with 'CALIFORNIA DUBSTEP REPUBLIC', a collective of performers who provided the first ever Dubstep float in San Francisco's equivalent of a large scale EDM festival like Love Parade. That year also debuted her solo event production alias, under the apt pseudonym: 'DVANT GARDE'. DV concepted, created, and debuted a new breed of seasonal event (known as 'Womper Womb') showcasing dubstep, glitch, and breaks with all female DJ talent from Burning Man. In 2010, she gained a new monthly residency with 'BELOW ZERO', featuring downtempo, chillout, trip-hop, and IDM.
