Eric Sharp & Rock It Science

The first time I met Eric Sharp was New Years Eve 2008 @ Temple Nightclub. For those that didn't know, NYE that year featured DIPLO (Mad Decent - worldwide), NICK CATCHDUBS (Fools Gold-NYC), MOTION POTION (Fringe/Mutaytor-SF), RICHIE PANIC (Frisco Disco/Robot Rock-SF), PHARRELL (Fluokids-Paris), MISS TOATS and RICHRD OH?! (Big Stereo-SF), PAUL HEMMING (Temple-SF), DURBEN (Temple-SF), and JASWHO? (Temple-SF). Needless to say, it was a pretty epic night, especially it being my first NYE in SF. Founder of Rock It Science and a member of both Flavor Group and Temple SF, Eric knows a thing or two about hustling. In an interview with SF Station last year (for NYE 2008 where he opened for Jesse Rose & Diplo [*again!]), he said this:
"Don't ever stop. Hone your skills, work hard, promote and market yourself persistently and tastefully. View the people who hate on you as a sign of encouragement: it means you are being successful and making people jealous."
Here's a little ditty taken from the Rock It Science bio page:
Eric Sharp’s ascent to the forefront of dance music can only be described as meteoric. From working countless dance floors into frenzies at clubs, bars, and parties across the US and the globe to producing some of San Francisco’s most epic parties with his crew Rock It Science, Eric’s seemingly endless energy and dedication is simply contagious.

It is obvious when Eric steps up to the decks that he spent years dancing all night and feeling the music, evidenced by both his ability to quickly tune into a crowd and get them going crazy as well as the fact that he is dancing with a huge smile on his face behind the tables as hard as anybody on the floor.

One of the most versatile dj’s around, Eric Sharp is known to play anything from Deep and Funky House to Dirty Acid Techno to pumping Chicago beats to Baile Funk to Baltimore Club Jams to Wobbly Fidget House to French & Italian Electro and everything in between. Inspired by jocks like Derrick Carter and Diplo who take their crowds on a musical journey, Eric always gives people what they need while still managing to keep them guessing and begging for more. Watching Mr. Sharp seamlessly mixing and layering tracks is entertainment in and of itself, and has caught the eye of promoters, dj’s, and producers alike.

This winning combination of dynamic energy, varied musical selections, excellent technical skills, and the uncanny ability to tap into any crowd has quickly made Eric one of the most sought after dj’s in SF and beyond, sharing the bill with seminal talent such as Diplo, Green Velvet, Mark Farina, Doc Martin, Jeno, Sunshine Jones (founding member of Dubtribe Soundsystem), Justin Martin, Worthy, Roy Davis Jr, Justin Long, DJ Heather, Jesse Saunders, Miss Honey Dijon, Klever, Q-Burns Abstract Message, Diz, Troydon, Miles Maeda, Funk D’Void, Mastiksoul, Lee Coombs, Nikola Baytala, Quentin Harris, Nick Catchdubs, Pharrell of Fluokids, DJ Fluid and more.

GoldSweat is super duper excited to have him for our opening night with Sticky K. Keep on the look out for more Rock It Science Events and don't forget to catch him at Temple SF on Friday Nights. Here's a super exclusive Remix from Eric Sharp... Enjoy!
