Get ready for a dose of Mushroom Jazz at Brooklyn Bowl. Chicago native Mark Farina brings his brand of house music and acid jazz with soulful, hip-hop-style bass back to Las Vegas for a headlining night of beautiful beats.

In almost 30 years as a producer, Farina—who has called San Francisco home for decades—has taken the sounds of his two cities to heart and created a hybrid of house music. It earned him support from American house and techno pioneers such as Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May, Juan Atkins and Derrick Carter. Farina’s sonic innovations also have him credited with crafting the first ambient house record, the classic “Mood.” And his Mushroom Jazz series of mixtapes is the stuff of dance music legend; Farina’s signature style projects a continuous, subtle vibe that keeps fans locked into a downtempo groove on the dancefloor. Expect him to pull a ton of underground-jackin’ goodies from his crate and bring Las Vegas a much-needed night of proper house music on the Strip.

While it’s unlikely Brooklyn Bowl would be down with one of Farina’s preferred eight-hour sets on Friday night, expect him to intrigue and entice you into begging for more when the last beat drops. Mark Farina with DJ Sneak at Brooklyn Bowl at the Linq Promenade, April 14.
