She has DJ'd for SomaFM at Chillits, the How Weird Street Fair, and DEF CON.

DJ Pie

DJ Pie, Resident DJ

Although my more recent gigs spinning metal and hiphop for the Bay Area Derby Girls would seem to indicate otherwise, I'm an oldschool bedroom and chillout party DJ with a soft spot for the clickier, crunchier side of downtempo. Having heard a lot about DEF CON from my coworkers during many years in the software industry, I'm especially pleased at this opportunity to attend and help provide a chill atmosphere.

Jon Logan

DJ Jon Logan, Resident DJ

Jon has been active in the chillout scene in San Francisco for over 15 years. As one of the co-founders of the legendary "Woom" deep chill parties, he also spend several years in China performing in clubs there.

Rusty Hodge

Rusty Hodge, Program & Music Director

I program music for several SomaFM channels, and I've been following DEF CON from afar since the very first one. So I'll be spinning a mix of downtempo/ambient/triphop/idm and late at night I'll get more into space music and deep ambient.
