Chelsea Faith died in the horrible Ghost Ship warehouse fire in Oakland, CA last Friday night.

I’ve known Chelsea since she was a teenager coming to my Moksha Tribe Parties. She was a beautiful, talented, amazing person. Her loss, and the loss of so many friends and kindred souls in that demon fire, diminishes me and the rest of the communal dance community.

Chelsea Faith was an electronic musician based in San Francisco, California. Her passion for dance music history is evident in her work, which takes cues from Detroit techno, Chicago house, and classic rave sounds. A multi-instrumentalist since childhood, Chelsea began experimenting with electronics as a teenager, which lead to playing live techno and house at underground raves in the 2000s. She has been working as a live performer, producer, DJ, and remixer for over a decade, using her gear savvy and innate musicianship to create lush, retro-futurist productions. Cherushii (Chelsea) signed with LA-based dance music tastemakers 100% Silk in 2013, and released her second 12″ for the label “Far Away So Close” in November 2015.

  1. I’m sorry for your loss, Apollo, and for all those other lives lost in the fire. Gentrification has become a scourge on our cities.
