KADEEJAH STREETS

Kadeejah Streets is many things: dark and gritty music, cheese steaks, French electro circa ’00, the magic hour of 3 am, infinite amounts of lasagna, Black Sabbath circa ’72, apocalypse, 1ups, East Coast rap ’89-’94, electro air guitar, baby blue pimp suit’s, sock feet dancing to Duran Duran, etc… Together in a venue or after hours environment with big sound + turntables and you get what is known as Kadeejah Streets or KDJ. Kadeejah has shared the decks with DJ Garth, Hipp-E, A Touch of Class, MSTRKRFT, Army of One, Guns n Bombs and many others. He is also co-founder of Innerflight Music and is known for bringing a sound best described as electro-tech-Tejano meets rave-y dance punk in a dark, dirty, sweat-on-the-walls underground location.
… because knowing is half the battle.

J-SUN

J-Sun (Jason Zucker) is one of the ringleaders of the Seattle electronic scene and has been involved in creating music as well as the community here for almost fifteen years. He is the founder of record label/DJ crew/party-makers Innerflight Music and as such has been responsible for the production of a ridiculous number of electronic events and the many smiles that accompany them.

As a DJ, J-Sun has accumulated a loyal following, enamored with his exuberant energy, deep crates, and heady get-down style. His potent programming and lucid mixology never fail to gather the rabble-rousers together to dance to his psychedelic underground house and techno sounds. Whether you find him spinning at a laser-drenched club in the city or outside in the forests of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, J-Sun is a bright-shining fixture on the region’s electronic music scene.

ABOUT GHOSTS ON TAPE
Ghosts on Tape likes raving. Mind you, not the glowstick-powered, trance-laden nonsense that masquerades as raving these days. The San Francisco resident wants the real thing: dark warehouses, big soundsystems, sweaty walls and even sweatier bodies, and the pulsing sounds of gritty house and techno.

It’s those kinds of sounds that Ghosts on Tape (a.k.a. Ryan Merry) assembles on his dual Yamaha SU700 samplers. Although the ’90s-era machines are undeniably antiquated—new sounds literally have be loaded on the fly via floppy disk—he’s thoroughly mastered these vintage weapons, crafting raw and trippy tunes that combine the ominous underbelly of classic house and techno with upfront, bass-heavy futurism. Those sonic principles also drive ICEE HOT, the influential monthly party (and newly formed record label) in San Francisco which Ghosts on Tape co-founded and where he continues to serve as a resident DJ.

A native of St. Louis, Ghosts on Tape relocated to San Francisco in 2003 and began garnering attention for his blistering DJ and live sets and the warped, slow-motion house and bass sounds he was creating. His 2009 Predator Mode EP on Wireblock exploded Ghosts on Tape’s profile even further, as did an exclusive mix for Mary Anne Hobbs’ BBC Radio 1 show, as well as compilation appearances and remixes for labels such as Planet Mu, Tigerbeat6, Frite Nite, Shockout, True Panther, Friends Of Friends, and Opit, among others. In 2011, he was selected to be a participant at the Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid. His sound has evolved over the years, gradually pushing up the tempo back towards his Midwestern house and techno roots, but one thing hasn’t changed: Ghosts on Tape likes raving.

ABOUT RECESS
Recess has been in a long term love affair with Seattle’s underground music scene for the past couple of decades. In the late 80′s he found his second home at the long defunct Club Underground in Seattle’s University District (along with DJ Dominator aka Donald Glaude, DJ Dan and many others). During the 90s he bounced between raves, rock shows and jazz clubs appreciating the passion and community behind the scenes. Using these early experiences as a platform, he started collecting records and honing his skills at various clubs around the Northwest; quickly establishing himself as a formidable performer.

In 2003 he founded Shameless Productions (responsible for numerous legendary underground club nights, parties and shenanigans). Along with a changing cast of players, over the years, Shameless established itself as a trust worthy brand by throwing some of the most memorable events for Seattle’s undergound dance music community. From day one, each Shameless party was a special one regardless of the wide ranges of genres and bookings represented. With an eye towards the cutting edge, but deep respect for electronic music’s rich history, Shameless has kept it’s finger on the pulse of Seattle’s underground for close to ten years. (Check out the video clip of the 2010 Shameless Anniversary Party for a taste… http://youtu.be/xjG7Dxyv8dg ).

In 2006 Recess was nominated as one of Seattle Weekly’s best local DJs. His DJ sets often reflect Shameless’ aesthetic by focusing on forward thinking music while cherishing the gems of the past. He’ll span the various sub genres of house/disco music, and may weave through techno, bass and funky depending upon the party. He’s also been known to throw down a rump shaking ghettotech/booty house set at times. As an example of his range, over the years he has rocked parties with Green Velvet, Egyptian Lover, Modeselektor, Claude Von Stroke, DJ Assault, Boys Noize, MSTRKRFT, Damian Lazarus, Smash TV, Drop the Lime, John Tejada and countless others across numerous electronic music genres. His range, passion and deep understanding of the dancefloor has made him a longtime favorite underground club DJ in Seattle and the greater Northwest. Whether it’s an afterhours loft space, major club, mountaintop, or random BASSment; Recess has consistently brought the sounds and energy to fit any dance party.

RA Horizons Tour Ft. Martyn and Max Cooper 9.22.12

Posted in Ben Tactic, Bubblin, Lincolnup, Martyn, Max Cooper, Resident Advisor, Showtime! on August 23, 2012 by lincolnup

From the Resident Advisor facebook evt pg:

We are excited to announce that Resident Advisor (RA) is coming to Portland as part of its global event series: RA Horizons.

Full info & tickets: http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?378021

Line-up:
Martyn
Max Cooper
Ben Tactic
Lincolnup

Last year RA celebrated 10 years with its X series, staging ten events in the most essential venues in many of the world’s biggest electronic music hubs (London, Berlin, New York, Tokyo, etc.). RA Horizons has a different objective. This time RA takes a journey down the road less travelled to stage a series of parties that focus on the dedicated scenes that exist outside the established global club circuit. Places with devout crowds, savvy promoters and great venues, but where you can’t just stumble out the front door and see one of your favourite DJs every weekend. The goal is to bring artists to cities they’ve never been to before, and in the process highlight exceptional clubs and promoters that are doing big things on a local level. After all, these are the people that are really fighting the odds and forging new territory.

Given the city’s unique charisma, cultural open-mindedness and enthusiasm for electronic music, Portland is a natural choice for our first US stop on the tour. Dutch bass artist and 3024 boss Martyn will headline the night at Holocene, likely weaving in and out of 4/4 rhythms as the night progresses. Joining him will be UK artist Max Cooper adding lush techno melodies to the program.

Warming up the evening’s soundtrack will be Portland’s very own Ben Tactic and Lincolnup, exactly the type of artists the series aspires to showcase – talented DJs pushing great music week in, week out.

Bubblin Presents Pezzner 8.31.12

Bubblin Presents

PEZZNER – Seattle / Freerange, Om, Apt

http://soundcloud.com/pezzner

Up until 2008 Dave Pezzner was virtually unknown to the electronic dance music community, aside from his works in the duo Jacob London (Classic Music, Doubledown, U-Freqs). For 16 years he cut his chops with partner Bob Hansen, creating eccentric house and break beat rhythms often crossing the lines between bad-ass, funky and hilarious.

In the winter of 2008, Pezzner took to his own studio to begin work on his first solo output composing songs that are more serious, with an abstract artistic sensibility. Quickly Dave’s catalog began to materialize with a signature sound: Lofty percussive themes with intentions to create hypnotic soundscapes for the body as well as the brain. It wasn’t long before Pezzner found his first 5 songs scooped up by London-based Freerange Records, covering the first two EP’s of his career, “Other Lover” and the epic three-part masterpiece “Almost Here.” These two EPs garnered him massive support from artists as varied as John Digweed, Laurent Garnier, Peter Kruder, Steve Bug and Ben Watt, setting up Pezzner as a producer on the rise.

These first two releases laid a solid foundation for his career and follow-ups are now in the pipeline on Om Records, London’s Urbantorque Recordings, plus another EP for Freerange. Dave has also got an arsenal of remixes forthcoming for heavyweights including Josh Wink, Mark Farina, and Mike Monday. Its a dizzying number of releases for an emerging artist, but now that Pezzner’s stepped out on his own, he’s definitely got a lot to say.

Abstract Earth Project and Bubblin are amped to be teaming up in welcoming back one of our very favorite DJ/Producers, Pearson Sound. This time round we’re hosting him within the cozy confines of Groove Suite, Portland’s premier house music club, on their impeccable Alignment Sound System, complete with perfectly tuned 21″ subwoofers. This is going to be hands down one of the best dance parties of the year, don’t miss this unique chance to see one of the most celebrated producer/dj’s of our times in this ideal and intimate venue.

About Pearson Sound

Following a momentous year of releases in 2010 and having concentrated his output under the Pearson Sound moniker, David Kennedy’s following 12 months have been just as busy; but for different reasons.

Releasing a critically acclaimed FABRICLIVE compilation in March he’s since remixed and opened for one of music’s most respected acts, Radiohead, in New York. Having travelled across Europe on the first Hessle Audio tour of the continent he’s also DJd on the London Eye, lectured at Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid and he’s constantly finding himself in new and interesting positions; whether that’s following Moodymann on a Sunday afternoon in a London basement or pre-empting Rusko at an open air festival.

Still very much a key component in the running of the Hessle Audio label, whose ‘116 & Rising’ compilation managed to emphatically collate their history whilst simultaneously looking to the future and their imminent 20th release, Kennedy’s output as Ramadanman may have ceased, but his subsequent work as Pearson Sound and as Chicago house ‘legend’ Maurice Donovan commands much the same level of gravitas with long sold out white label releases and a 12” on Night Slugs.

Musically, he’s looking forward, refusing to sit still or be easily categorised. And with his latest productions feeding more from the classic notions of 4×4 dancefloor music and his sets retaining every inch of precision and his selection spreading out further as his knowledge of music grows he has established himself as one of the UK’s most in demand artists.
