Interviews, Music, The New Gay Interview »

The duo of Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland are one of the rare acts who can make electronic music fun, interesting and evocative. Whether heard at the 930 Club or your computer speakers, there is a great depth to tracks like “You Don’t Have A Clue” or “The Alcoholic” that makes it just a wee bit difficult to view Robert Miles the same way afterwards.

As one of the events editors for San Francisco, I have had the opportunity to meet some fascinating and creative people who make the city so colorful. One of my favorite events to cover (and to dance and get drunk at) has been the Go BANG! party at Deco Lounge in part because it’s, well, BANGING, and also because of the unabashed passion that party co-founder, Sergio Fedasz, puts into every fourth Saturday night. It’s fun, it’s energetic, it’s sweaty and it’s banging. Sergio himself has become a fixture in the club scene from Go BANG! to his radio show on KALX, to Friday nights at Cafe Flore and through the endless collaborations with other DJs across the city. It’s no surprise that he won SF Weekly’s Readers’ Poll for Best DJ in 2010. This Saturday, Go BANG! sets to explode at the Deco Lounge, and Sergio took some time to answer a few questions for The New Gay.
