Galen aka DJ BUD hails from Eastern PA outside of Philly. He moved West to San Diego in 1996 with $300 and a California dream. Already immersed in house music culture he headed North to S Lake Tahoe to snowboard and enjoy the proximity to San Francisco’s music scene. By 1999 he headed back to San Diego and began DJing at the beginning of the year 2000 because he loved to dance. He spun House, deep house, tech house, techno, acid and breaks. He has played at various underground events as well as local San Diego haunts like the Kava Lounge and Red C Lounge and more.
Preferring to play vinyl but moving forward with technology, BUD plays digital but is vehement about truly beat matching. These days he plays more tech house and techno but still plays true and deep house as well. Cheaters may play perfect sets but BUD has the taste, experience and skills to throw down some serious beats so enjoy!
