World-Renowned reggae band Big Mountain started in 1986 in San Diego, California. They first hit the charts in 1992 with the song “Touch My Light” from their debut album, Wake Up. Following “Touch My Light,” Big Mountain released their cover of “Baby, I Love Your Way” in 1994. Originally written by Peter Frampton in 1975, it is one of the most recognized love songs and commercial hits of all time. That song and the band’s next major hit single, “Get Together,” continue to be crowd favorites at Big Mountain shows. After 10 consecutive years of touring, including two appearances at Jamaica’s Reggae Sunsplash Festival, Big Mountain took a break in 2005, occasionally reuniting for international performances for the next eight years. In May 2016, the band released Perfect Summer, their first album in 14 years. 

DJ Sep is a long-time Bay Area DJ/producer, and the founder of Dub Mission, one of the longest-running Reggae clubs in the world (1996-2019). She spins dub, reggae, dancehall, bass, Jungle/DnB, and Afrobeats. For 22 years, Sep was also on Bay Area radio, first on the legendary college radio station KUSF, and later on Berkeley’s public radio station, KPFA. Sep has spun at festivals and clubs in Spain, the U.K., Canada, Mexico, many cities in the U.S., and most clubs in the greater Bay Area, and has presented and opened for a long list of reggae and electronic artists, including Lee Perry, The Scientist, Mad Professor, Sister Nancy, Sly & Robbie, Toots and The Maytals, Mykal Rose, Mungo’s Hi Fi, Adrian Sherwood, Tippa Irie, The Wailers, Quantic, Akae Beka (aka Midnite), Hollie Cook, many others.
