Regina "Gun$ Garcia" Dyhouse is a Washington D.C. area transplant, who moved to Philadelphia for art school, and ended up taking the city's music scene by storm. She initially made her way into the electronic music arena designing merchandise and promoting events for the future music DJ / production titans, Seclusiasis. In 2009 she moved from behind the scenes to front and center, and began her first DJ residency at Flamin Hotz Records' 'I CAN HAS BASS?' party. Soon after, she was inducted into the Philly chapter of the legendary New Jersey based DJ / producer club music collective; the Brick Bandits. It's here where she makes magic, fusing the laser sharp Jersey and Philly Club sound of her Brick Bandits family with the finest in upbeat global dance and bass music.

She approaches her DJ sets with the goal of playing music that would personally have her cutting a rug on the dancefloor, and she's often found dancing as hard as the crowd in the DJ booth. She's wowed crowds from clubs to festivals including the Mad Decent Block Party, and currently holds residencies at Philly's Hands & Knees and Factory Girls. Her Double Dutch party created the blueprint for "girl power" in Philly, and showcased the debut 215 performances of Azaelia Banks, Maluca and Zuzuka Poderosa among others. She has performed with Diplo, Lil Debbie, Riff Raff, Dj Sliink, Dirty South Joe, Kid Sister, Kreayshawn, Rye Rye, Honey Cocaine, Chippy Nonstop, Azalea Banks, Dillon Francis, Been Trill, Dj Diamond Kutz and more. Gun$ Garcia has established herself as one of the most formidable and inspiring DJs in the US and her brand is rapidly gaining global recognition and respect.

Dentana
A self-described "architect of auditory hallucinations", Dentana has been active within the electronic music scene in Philadelphia for a decade. Engineering events, recording, and performing live/djing, however, had already been their life’s focus.
Den's musical escapades started at the ripe age of five when they began classical piano training which continued throughout the duration of their childhood and resulted in their first scored composition by age seven. In early adolescence they actively started/joined bands as a drummer, bassist, vocalist; becoming very active in the punk & thrash scenes while residing in show houses across West Philadelphia by age 16.
Taught how to DJ in their early teens, they cut their teeth publicly with Custom Lifestyle in their early 20s, putting on and playing rave events at the now infamous 5th & Cecil B Moore warehouse (upstairs). It was around this time that Dentana also created, managed, & maintained Bottle Bar East’s sound and DJ Residency Program.
Currently, Den hosts three separate monthly residencies in Philadelphia, giving life to their boundless creativity and singular style. Created in 2014 as a weekly club night, Extra Dark currently happens every first Wednesday at Kung Fu Necktie collaboratively with Deviant Collective. Their newer vehicle, Difference Engine, takes over one Saturday each month at W/N W/N.
Dentana has served as the executor DJ & Electronic Director of Deviant PHL for about two years, as well as becoming the resident DJ for End Result Productions in February of 2016. This culminated in their first solo full-length cassette release, “Punx is Techno" via ERP’s summer campaign earlier this year.
