Mark de Clive-Lowe [MdCL] is at at the forefront of the global beats, jazz and soul movement. Having been involved with over 200 releases on labels including Masters At Work Records, Verve Records, Impulse Records and collaborating with as diverse a range of artists as Lauryn Hill, Jody Watley, UK soul don Omar, Bugz in the Attic, Dego [4Hero], percussionist Sammy Figuera [Miles Davis], bass player Pino Palladino [D’Angelo/The Who] and plenty more, MdCL is one of the most innovative producers and live performers you’ll find anywhere.

Sy Smith has been called by her peers “the hardest working woman in show business”! It’s no wonder. With 3 CDs, 1 EP, and 1 DVD released independently, she’s the driving force behind the underground soul scene in Los Angeles. Sy launched the Nu-Soul brand at our first event back in 2006 and has continued to participate in and support our events over the years. Her new collaboration with Mark de Clive-Lowe has been creating shockwaves in the international dance music scene.

San Diego, get ready! Mark and Sy will be delivering a 90 minute live set full of surprises that will span house, broken beat and soul! You won’t want to miss this musical event.

Your DJs for the night:

DJ ALA (Dive San Diego)

ALA’s ability to move the crowd earned him invitations to play across the globe. From San Francisco to New York, he has graced the decks of many notable venues around the country including DEEP @ Vanguard (LA), APT (NYC), Pink (SF), End Up (SF), Hyde Park Café (Tampa), Karu & Y (Miami), Boston, Lotus Sound Bar (Honolulu), King-King (LA), and the legendary Boom Boom Room in Chicago to name a few. Yet with such a hectic schedule, he still holds down one of the longest running deep house nights in San Diego, DIVE, every Saturday at Candelas Lounge, where you can catch him spinning his token deep soulful sounds with regular guests from around the world.


Strictly Social founder and resident always lives up to his name. Fluid in all styles and genres, Destroyer can lay waste to any dancefloor spinning with ease everything from house to hip-hop to reggae to soul. San Diego, please say hello to your new favorite DJ.
