About DJ Bradley and Sonicfoundation:

DJ Bradley (Bradley Fitzhenry) is the founder of the production crew Sonicfoundation, and has produced over 100 parties in San Francisco (Groovesector, Funkengruven) and Fresno (nectar, after-sessions, groovejet, deep & funky, tasty).

He was born and raised in the central valley of California with musical tastes born out of a strange combination of influences: his mother’s fascination with 70’s-era pop, the high school embrace of early 80’s Goth and new wave, plus a disk jockey stint at the seminal college radio station kfsr 90.7fm in the late eighties. Somehow this mélange of sounds coalesced in the mid-nineties when Bradley was introduced to the burgeoning underground house and rave scene in San Francisco. It clicked. For over a year he quietly bought records and practiced in his small apartment in Fresno, California, before playing his first gig in 1998 in Los Angeles with Doran.

after that wonderful experience, and with the support of a growing fan base, Bradley honed his skills and began focusing his sound towards the deeper side of underground house, playing gigs in San Francisco, Oakland, Seattle, Los Angeles and Chicago, both headlining and playing alongside some of his house heroes: Jeno, Garth, Tracy, Hector Morales, Rick Preston, Kelvin K, M3, Carl Cox, John Howard and many others.

Bradley’s energetic personality and exciting style of mixing, coupled with his instinctual and immediate connection with any crowd conspire to make him a formidable presence behind the decks.
