“Mrs Smith” (AKA Sara Finlayson) is a dance music veteran. A regular at Melbourne’s gay clubs in the eighties (“the only places you could hear good dance music in Australia”), she worked in the nightclub industry before moving to London to work at Tower Records dance department. She was active in the London rave scene of the early nineties, before moving to Los Angeles, where she met “Mr Smith” (AKA Christopher Lawrence, a struggling bedroom DJ) and they were married shortly after. Continuing her career in dance music, Sara worked for several years for German techno star Sven Vath at the LA office of his labels Eye Q Music / Harthouse before becoming the Los Angeles editor of respected US electronic music mag XLR8R, as well as contributing to magazines including the UK’s Muzik and DJ Mag. During this time, Sara also produced music with Dave Aude under the moniker Mile High for Moonshine Music. It was also in the late nineties that Sara formed Monster Media, a management and PR company specializing in dance music, under which she managed the careers of artists including husband Christopher Lawrence, a position she continues to this day. A familiar face backstage in the dance music industry, Sara brings her tough attitude out of the shadows and into the DJ booth with ‘Mr + Mrs Smith’.

When it comes down to his style it could be described as frenetic, fast paste and in your face. Unlike your typical DJ who plays a track out to its fullest, BRD likes to cram an enormous amount of songs into each set he does. Along with his DJing skills, BRD has a fidget/electro side project that he likes to through into a lot of his mixes.
When asked about his style, this is what BRD had to say: “With trance its different because it’s all about the build up, every part of a trance song is essential to a trance mix. With electro and house on the other hand, the tracks tend to drag on and go nowhere fast. So I decided to basically play the best parts.”
Every 3rd Thursday of the month the Bistro 400 in downtown Santa Ana gets transformed into The Sound Lab, which hosts electro, trance, techno and house artist in the area.
