Dj Deeon Aka Debo Bang (Dance Mania)
Though he’s revered among Chicago DJs and around the world as the original master of ghetto dance music, Deeon started small, on Chicago’s south side. He sold his DJ mixtapes in the parking lot where he lived, and played house parties in the projects. These crowded living room parties started the feeling and inspiration for the sound Deeon produced, music he simply refers to as, “for the strippers, for the street”. While tracks like “Accelerate” on Dance Mania were doing well overseas, he was getting little support or play from local Chicago clubs. Deeon calls ghetto house the “stepchild of Chicago house”. Eventually the incredible response from his music forced the clubs to concede and play his records. These “techno with a ghetto edge” tracks have found way to the decks in clubs around the world. Deeon found his home on Chicago’s own Dance Mania label, where he released hits like “Let Me Bang”, “Who You Wit”, “Da Dick Suck” and “The Freaks”. Deeon is currently signed to Databass Records, which is rereleasing most of his back catalog with new remixes!

We at Bubblin are fully stoked out to team up with RBMA to close 2013 with the hugely talented Machinedrum and a stellar local cast of support. His Vapor City Live A/V show, featuring Machinedrum on vocals, guitar, and electronics alongside a truly gifted live drummer, all set to beautiful visuals, has been garnering remarkable amounts of acclaim. We were bummed to miss him at Decibel Festival as everyone we came across told us it was the set of the festival, and word is the show has only become exponentially more amazing and fluid since then. With support from PDX’s ascendant star Natasha Kmeto and further representatives of crucial PDX crews Dropping Gems, Booty Bassment, PDneXt, All Ours, and Club Chemtrail, plus Bubblin Residents Lincolnup and Ben Tactic, all over two rooms, with Video and Lighting by Tracer Visuals, this evening promises to be hugely satisfying. It’s been a pretty great 2013 and we’ve been very fortunate to see appearances at Bubblin from luminaries such as Falty DL, Todd Edwards, DJ Pierre, Ben UFO, Bok Bok, L-Vis 1990, Om Unit, and many more, and we are deeply thankful to everyone who’s supported our events this year. ♥ THANK YOU ♥ We won’t be doing a NYE party, in lieu of this, so please do join us here to close out this wild year in fine style!

About Machinedrum
Born Travis Stewart on March 4th 1982, Machinedrum has produced and composed several albums under various aliases since his first independent release in 1999. Covering an astonishing variety of styles with ease, he has always been a trailblazer – bridging the gap between genres that would otherwise never have met before.

His debut Now You Know, was released in 2001 on the influential Miami-based Merck Records and gained worldwide attention and praise from musicians, fans and critics. It was heralded as the “standard to which the next wave of imitators aspires” by Pitchfork.com

Having a strong background in both acoustic and electronic instrumentation, he dances between those elements on all his releases. This can be heard inthe field recording and vintage synth laden Urban Biology to his seminal production and mixing of the This Charming Mixtape with MC Theophilus London and his critically acclaimed 2009 album Want To 1 2?

2010 saw Machinedum re-surface in a major way. His Many Faces EP on Glasgow-based label LuckyMe garnered attention from a brand new audience and opened the door for his very first performance at Sonar Festival. Simultaneously his newest side project Sepalcure, a duo with Praveen Sharma, became one of the intriguing names in the post-dubstep and UK funky scene. Two EPs, Love Pressure and Fleur, released on imprint Hotflush, has giventhe duo NYC ambassadorship for this UK-based genre. An additional EP release on Innovative Leisure and musical composition for the off-broadway musical Camp Wanatachi completed one of Machinedrum’s busiest years to date.

In the past year, Machinedrum has relocated to Berlin and maintained a steady flow of releases including the celebrated Alarmaa EP on LuckyMe and his very first releases on Planet Mu Records the Sacred Frequency EP which served as a teaser for the critically-acclaimed Room(s) LP immediately followed by Ecstasy Boom, a free gift to fans offered on the web, and a self-titled LP from Sepalcure that anchored the duo as true tastemakers of electronica. SXLND, Stewart’s latest release with LuckyMe, is once again redefining his sound and keeping fans, along with critics, guessing what is still in store. Hard to believe, but the best is yet to come.

A true electronic music Renaissance man, Machinedrum blends together current pop music standards and trends with his own extensive knowledge of experimental production techniques, delivering his quality signature on every thing he touches.

About Natasha Kmeto
Natasha Kmeto is a Portland-based singer and electronic producer who turns heads everywhere she goes. Armed with a taut dance floor sensibility and flutteringly sensuous voice, she exudes the kind of beauty that can only come from confidence. Her tracks are sleek and energetic affairs, straddling the line between dance, pop, and RnB, percussively intriguing compositions that slide easily into the ear but aren’t so easily forgotten. Her beauty, energy, and talent coalesce into a truly visceral live show, moving both to the partygoer and the thinking person alike. Wherever her music goes, heavy breathing will follow.

Born into a musical family in California, Natasha began to develop her talents as an artist from a young age. It wasn’t until almost two decades later, on the verge of becoming a career session musician, that she grabbed the wheel and broke out in a direction that truly inspired her. Her arrival in Portland marked a big step towards new things. The past several years as seen her growth quicken, especially after signing with hometown label Dropping Gems. The string of releases that have followed showcase Natasha in her most self-realized form, in matters of love, independence, and outlook on life.

Natasha has a long list of notable live performances under her belt, including gigs at Coachella, Bumbershoot, MusicFestNW, Symbiosis, SXSW, Low End Theory (LA and SF) and Decibel Festival. She has shared the stage with a number of talented artists as well, including Squarepusher, Emancipator, Kid Cudi, Plaid, Gold Panda, Dam Funk, Shlohmo, Shigeto, and Morcheeba, just to name a few. Her radio experience includes live performances on Boiler Room and KEXP, and her tracks have been played by numerous noteworthy DJs including Mary Anne Hobbes. She is due to release her LP ‘Crisis’ June 18th on Dropping Gems.

Bubblin welcomes tastemaking San Francisco bass purveyor Ana Sia to close out our 2013 residency at The Rose Bar! Her excellent forthcoming EP, ‘The Glass Delusion/Ad Out’, coming out on Hot N Heavy Recordings this month, cements her commitment to catalyzing a sea change from the dominant Trap/EDM sounds currently prevailing on many dance floors towards a headier, funkier, UK Bass informed aesthetic. We couldn’t imagine a better person to close out 2013 and launch us into 2014. With support from local hero PRSN and up and comer Tabor Dark, plus your Bubblin residents Ben Tactic and Lincolnup, this will be another great night of the best music and dancing within the intimate confines of The Rose Bar. Read on below for Ana Sia’s full biography…

BIO:
Ana Sia’s DJ crate is a ticker for the hottest sounds of tomorrow. One of the west coast’s most celebrated DJs, this SF Bay Area-based tastemaker is known for not only energizing the dance floor, but consistently breaking new sounds from all over the world. Having championed some of the most beloved music festivals in the US, Canada and abroad, Ana Sia has gone from rocking house parties to stadiums by stylistically staying two steps ahead of the game. From huge festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival and others, and an array of clubs and venues spanning every major city, countless college towns and hot spots everywhere, Ana Sia has built a community just as fun, wild and eclectic as her style. She has shared the stage with a growing list of artists ranging all styles of electronic dance music, from Diplo to Deadmau5, Datsik to Daedelus…and everybody in between. Ana Sia jumped off 2012 on NYE in Queenstown, New Zealand, as she continues her conquering of sound systems across the globe. Shortly before, she unleashed her first full length contribution, a well-regarded compilation and DJ-mix titled ‘Surreal Estate’ on Frite Nite, her quickly-rising Cali-based label and crew. A testament to her forward-thinking style, ‘Surreal Estate’ was featured in music publications such as Resident Advisor, Pitchfork, XLR8R, Sonic Router and more, touted as leading the way with the brightest production minds in North American dance music. Coupled with her growing production catalog and high-profile collaborations under way, Ana Sia looks to make her mark on recorded music as well as the stage. In the meantime, she’ll keep crowds enticed — keeping speakers pumping with big, bass-driven, intelligent and sexy music…deep enough for the cabaret and filthy enough for the festival stage.

Bubblin is beyond stoked to bring the singular talent that is Om Unit back to PDX, hot on the heels of the release of his phenomenal new LP ‘Threads’, out Oct 28 on Civil Music. From being a representative for the UK at the DMC World Championships as 2tall to being a prime builder of the beautiful bridge that now exists between Jungle and Footwork as Philip D Kick, Om Unit is no doubt one of the very finest producers and dj’s of our time. This is a super special opportunity to catch him within the intimate, house party vibes of The Rose Bar – with stellar local support from Tigerfresh and Philip Grass, plus Bubblin residents Lincolnup and Ben Tactic. It’s about to go down PDX. Read on below for the man’s full story

ABOUT OM UNIT

Om Unit has built a deserved reputation as one of the strongest and most consistent artists in the electronic sphere. His 2010 reworking of Joker’s ‘DigiDesign’ was sanctioned by Kode9 for white label treatment & original material quickly followed on Fabric-curated ‘Elevator Music’ compilation, the ‘Lavender/Lightgrids 7′ for All City & ‘The Corridor’ EP for Plastician’s Terrorhythm imprint.

Now across a series of 3 EPs for Civil Music Om Unit has defined himself as a uniquely talented & groundbreaking producer whose sound & style is distinctive yet diverse. He explored Real Electro on ‘The Timps’, experimented in Mechanical Soul around the 80/160bpm mark on ‘Transport’ & created the rousing cinematic journey of ‘Aeolian’.

Om Unit was selected for the Red Bull Music Academy as part of the class of 2011 in Madrid & performs as part of London’s Tempo Clash residents with Kutmah, Kidkanevil, Blue Daisy & Offshore. He has launched his own label Cosmic Bridge & appeared on compilations for Project Mooncircle & Pinch’s Tectonic Label.

Released across 3 volumes throughout 2011, Om Unit conducted the Philip D Kick experiment. (read more here) Conceived as an anonymous alias as PDK he pioneered the combination of Jungle & Footwork in a series of edits. Intrigue grew ever larger as the identity of the producer was sought. Om Unit simultaneously revealed himself as Philip D Kick & retired the alias at the peak of the hype but not before connecting with Machinedrum .The producers discovered they had independently conceived the jungle/footwork hybrid on either side of the Atlantic & went on to collaborate as Dream Continuum with the highly anticipated Reworkz EP on Planet Mu in early 2012.

Om Unit has in a short time remixed an extensive list of peers, amongst others Daedelus, Om’Mas Keith, Fracture, Starkey, Ital Tek, Shigeto, Pixelord, Sweatson Klank, Illum Sphere, Adam Freeland & Foreign Beggars. He has collaborated with Mark Pritchard, ARP101, Lorn, Danny Breaks & Kromestar, made live appearances at Sonar, Glade across the UK, Europe, Russia, Australia, New Zealand & beyond and appeared twice on Boiler Room & provided mixes for XLR8R, Dummy, Lucky Me, Electronic Explorations, Clash Magazine & more.

Based in London Om Unit is the alias of Jim Coles. Producing since his early teens starting with Jungle he graduated via the world of turntablism under the 2tall moniker to represent the UK in the DMC world DJ championships. As 2tall he appeared on the John Peel show, collaborated with Dabrye, Foreign Beggars, Kashmere, Jesht & produced 3 albums including ìBeautiful Mindzî a collaborative project with U.S duo Dudley Perkins & Georgia Anne Muldrow (Stones Throw), & ìThe Softer Diagramî on L.A-based Content Records. After performing Decks ëní FX in dubstep pioneers Various Productions & Jim retired 2tall in 2008 and reset.

Now as Om Unit, with a career moving forward at rare pace, he has quickly become one of electronic musicís most pioneering & unique front-runners. One of the most exciting artists to emerge in recent times, his output, packed with unique combinations of style & diverse demonstrations of its makers adaptability, is consistently helping to shape musicís electronic landscape.

After an already frantic year with releases on Planet Mu, All City, and continuing his work with his Cosmic Bridge imprint, ahead lies tracks for Metalheadz and Exit Records, more collaborations, an extensive worldwide tour schedule (including 2013′s Month-long US/Canada tour and Australia/New Zealand tour), and his debut album scheduled for 2013 with Civil Music. The future looks ever brighter.

As L-Vis 1990, James Connolly has been releasing a singular brand of club music free of rules and genres since dropping his eponymous debut EP in 2008. Yes, we understand if you’re sceptical—everyone claims to be a rule-breaker these days. But try putting into words the music on his and Bok Bok’s inimitable Night Slugs label or any of his tracks and remixes over the past few years and it should quickly become apparent that L-Vis 1990 has been doing things just a little bit differently.

James grew up in Brighton, UK, where during his teenage years he began to DJ, produce and promote club nights. He co-founded the Fallout night, while picking up gigs across the city and experimenting with music production software. The booking of NYC producer Drop The Lime for another of his club nights, So Loud!, would prove to be an epiphanic moment, in that it reconnected James with a love for bass music, inspiring him to write his standout first release, the L-Vis 1990 EP.

As though setting in motion a domino effect, the track “Change The Game” from that release piqued the interest of Alex Sushon, AKA Bok Bok, who got in contact with James, thus beginning an enduring creative relationship that would indeed change the game. James relocated to London soon after, although the pair quickly concluded that the city’s music scene was, to quote Alex, “shit and we weren’t feeling it.” The by-product of their vexation was Night Slugs. The first party went down in March 2008 at Camberwell’s Redstar, and went on to take up primary residence at East Village (among many other raves at one-off venues) with guests like Oneman, Lil Silva, Geeneus, Christian Martin, Roska and Kode9 feeding into the night’s freewheeling attitude.

As Night Slugs began to properly establish itself, as did James as a producer. In 2009 Compass / Zahonda for Sound Pellegrino and the colossal United Groove for Mad Decent were supplemented by a slew of remixes for artists like Laidback Luke & Diplo, Riton & Primary 1 and Gucci Vump. Acting as a precursor for all that was to come the following year, James and Alex also dropped The Night Slugs EP through Glasgow imprint Dress 2 Sweat, introducing Alex’s now famed style of artwork and their common interest in eschewing any sort of formulas.

The energy and creativity surrounding the Night Slugs party had reached critical mass by the end of that year: at the start of 2010 the Night Slugs label was launched via Mosca’s Square One. By the time James had made his full NS debut with the anthemic Forever You in August, the imprint had put-out peerless music from Girl Unit, Egyptrixx, Lil Silva and Jam City, and was already being spoken of in terms of ‘label of the year’. A tumultuous first year was encapsulated on Night Slugs Allstars Volume One, while James and the extended NS family had successfully cultivated a vibe and an outlook that was entirely sui genius.

This considerable momentum spilled over into 2011—killer releases from Kingdom, Bok Bok, Pearson Sound and Jam City made sure of that. In the studio, meanwhile, James had begun to further explore the groove-based exploits outlined on “Forever You” and his remix of Gucci Vump, via re-rubs of Cassius and Round Table Knights. In fact, the real result of these endeavours could be thought of as a lifetime in the making as James released his debut album, Neon Dreams, through PMR Records. Using exclusively hardware (Roland’s 707 drum machine features on every track), James has crafted a deeply personal record that, through the voices of Javeon McCarthy and Samantha Lim, conveys the story of a year in his life. Neon Dreams brings 15 years’ worth of musical influences to bear, while shifting into focus the love of classic house music that has transcended all of James’s output to date.

Never one to let the dust settle 2012 see’s James dive further into the House music whirlpool, with an anthemic remix for dance legends Orbital and his first release for NIght Slugs since 2010′s ‘Forever You’. Club Constructions Vol.1 is part of a a new series of releases that will operate alongside Night Slugs’ main EPs and white label series, a home for their most direct productions, aimed straight for the dancefloor. With CC Vol.1 James draws on classic Dance Mania and Underground Construction vibes to deliver 5 tape-saturated, strictly-analog slices of modern-day ghetto hard house that have been supported by DJ’s across the world of house and techno. 2012 looks set to be the year that James and Night Slugs reaffirm their place at the forefront of progressive club music.
