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.

Join us as Red Bull Music Academy & Soul’d Out Music Festival present the Bubblin 3 Year Anniversary. Since 2010, Bubblin has been one of North America’s definitive advocates for all sounds at the intersection of house, garage, techno and tropical bass. For the occasion we’re thrilled to present a line up of PDX debuts by two of the most incandescent talents to emerge in dance music in recent years: Hessle Audio Co-Boss and globally revered disk jockey Ben UFO and 100% Silk’s melodic deep house savant Octo Octa. We have also enlisted Fusebox’s glorious Funktion One rig and 3D projection mapped visuals by PDX’s Prism Labs to make sure the evening both sounds and looks beautiful.

ABOUT BEN UFO
http://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/benufo
http://rinse.fm/artists/hessleaudio/

As one of the co-founders of Hessle Audio, Ben UFO has been responsible, alongside Pearson Sound and Pangaea, for some of the most varied and ground breaking releases of recent years. Having become immersed in the still emerging dubstep scenes in London and Leeds in 2005, his musical taste was shaped primarily by the DMZ and Sub Dub nights taking place in those cities. However, as tastes have shifted and scenes have fragmented, Ben UFO’s approach to the music and to Hessle Audio itself has developed.

As BPMs have dropped and influences have broadened, so too has the vision of Ben UFO’s DJing. He remains one of the few DJs in the UK to have made an impact without a production career to fall back on, and as such his reputation is solely the result of his skill as a selector and as a mixer. As a result he remains in a position to fully explore sounds both old and new, across the worlds of house and garage, dubstep and grime, and further into the past. This level of commitment to the dance music of the last two decades has led to a collection of records which reflects the position London has long held as a city responsible for the constant development of forward thinking music.

This is not to say that his focus is primarily on the sounds of the old school, as Ben UFO is looked to as one of the leading figures supporting up and coming producers. He was the first DJ to play material by producers such as Blawan and Joy Orbison, both now scene figureheads, and his biweekly slot on London’s leading ex-pirate radio station, RinseFM, is considered to be one of the only places to hear the most exclusive new music by both new and established producers.

In addition to well received podcasts in magazines and websites as varied as Resident Advisor, XLR8R, Red Bull Music Academy and Fact Magazine, 2011 was the year that Ben UFO entered the world of commercially released mix CDs. His contribution to the respected RinseFM series was widely praised for its coherence despite the breadth of styles showcased, and he was placed #35 in a Resident Advisor readers’ poll to find the years best DJ. It’s a result which reflects Ben UFO’s ability to successfully present unfamiliar, experimental dance music to a diverse variety of audiences worldwide.

Ben UFO plays from 9PM – 11PM on RinseFM (www.rinse.fm / 106.8FM in London) every Thursday night.

ABOUT OCTO OCTA
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Octo-Octa/311612715552997?

Octo Octa is Michael Bouldry-Morrison, a Brooklyn-based house music producer. Following the release of his debut EP “Let Me See You” on 100% Silk in 2011 – a release described by label head Amanda Brown (LA Vampires) as “literally one of the favorite songs ever released on either of my record labels” – he went on to produce three further releases for the label: ʻRough, Rugged, and Raw,ʼ ʻOh Love,ʼ and an eventual collaboration with Amanda Brown, the ʻLA Vampires by Octo Octaʼ release “Freedom 2K.” His singular brand of R&B-sampling deep and emotional house music has propelled him to the forefront of a scene of house-not-house producers garnering widespread critical acclaim in both traditional electronic music and indie-minded musical circles. Having recently been selected as a participant for the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy, a European tour scheduled for late 2012, and both a new EP and LP in the works, Octo Octaʼs ascent is imminent.
