From his beginnings working for labels in Chicago's music scene during the birth of house music, FACTORe has become one of the key figures in modern electronic music. With tracks on iconic compilations such as DJ Icey’s Essential Elements and Rick West’ Flavored Beats 6, plus legendary performances worldwide at venues and festivals including The Guvernment Toronto, Paradiso Amsterdam, Rednofive Chicago, Ultra Miami, MIDEM and Amsterdam Dance Event, FACTORe and his sound continue to traverse the world at what seems like an unstoppable speed.

Upon moving to Atlanta in the early 90s, FACTORe was instrumental in building up the underground dance movement and was featured in documentary ‘Generations of Sound’, in which he was regarded as one of the pioneers of the rave scene in North America. Additionally, FACTORe found himself as the DJ of MTV’s Campus Invasion Tour as well as the touring DJ for PLAYBOY.

As label boss of 20K Freaks, with an expansion of top 10 hits (including a number one hit on Billboard) and consistently charting releases on Beatport, FACTORe continues to generate buzz from listeners around the globe.  His sets are driven by his signature selection of world-renowned tracks, including exclusive originals from a variety of dance music genres to electrify the crowd, moving everyone.  

Look for highly anticipated full-length releases from FACTORe on 20K Freaks, which will show the virtuoso side to the FACTORe you already know and love.


Zak Davis

Florida based Zak Davis is a true veteran DJ who continues to solidify his mark on the dance music world. He has developed a style to fit the mood of the crowd thanks to growing up in Memphis on an eclectic diet of blues and RnB and time spent in Al Green’s studio.

After moving to South Florida, Zak discovered late night Miami Bass parties and the vibrant rhythms of Freestyle, the styles that became his first dance music loves. Breakbeat was the first influence on his journey to the turntables where he quickly became a regular fixture in south Florida’s nightlife for over 25 years. With shows at local hotspots like Mansion (Miami) and Ampitheater (Tampa), international festivals like Sunset Music Festival, Ultra Miami and Starscape, as well as sharing the stage with such well-known DJs such as Carl Cox, Ferry Corsten and Icey, Zak Davis has been receiving positive feedback from both the general public and the music industry for his inventive mixing techniques and ability to appeal to both the broadest and most discerning audiences.

As a record label boss of 20K Freaks and with years of experience curating memorable moments as founder of production company Essential Freaks (Summer Splash), throwing world renowned events such as bassic and Essential Bass, Zak Davis uses his love and comprehension of music to create exhilarating late-night sets that have helped him establish his skilled reputation. Quite simply, Zak Davis takes listeners on an entertaining journey through electronic and dance music.

No backpacks, no outside food or beverages.
