Tribal-house DJ John Howard holds the distinction of being, quite possibly, the most famous DJ that no one's ever heard of. His odd famous-yet-unknown status can be chalked up to his San Franciscan roots. The City by the Bay is notorious for its edgier-than-thou, art-before-business attitude, and Howard, as the quintessential S.F. DJ, is practically honor-bound to stay tightly wrapped in a cloak of anonymity. Which he has, for a decade. Nevertheless, anyone who's ever had a passion for house music has probably heard a set or two by Howard. He's a fixture on the San Francisco house scene; which has remained one of the biggest house scenes in the world since 1993. He's played countless times at legendary parties such as Wicked and Spundae. He also mans the decks at smaller, insiders-only venues such as The Top and The End Up.
