shamless_AC006 smash TV

Our love affair with Smash TV has been going on for years now. From Broken Disco to Bloody Valentine. They have rocked Seattle dance floors like smooth criminals. They’re one of our favorite producer/DJ combos. For the next episode of Shameless Audiocast and to build the hype for the Shameless Showcase @ Cascadia Festival we bring you an exclusive DJ mix from SMASH TV.

The name Smash TV rings bells internationally. Like a phoenix off the ashtray, Holger Zilske and Kai Preussner are back to bond their knowhow and skills, always burning the candle at both ends… Founder Holger Zilske is known for his numerous Smash TV-releases on bpitchcontrol: his albums “electrified” and “bits for breakfast”, singles like “yellow asteroids” “air/earth” and “locomotive breath” plus co-writing and co-production for Ellen Allien including the albums “stadtkind”, “berlinette” and “thrills”. Playhouse, Diynamic and Leena have been recent stations on Holgers path, always displaying a distinct blend of complex arrangements, gargantuan bass lines and sweat fueled percussion.

Shameless Audiocast 005 Kadeejah Streets

July 16th, 2015 by joebellingham

shamless_AC005

Little known to many, long before the dirty womp infected his brain, it was Mr. Streets’ introduction to – and love affair with – the disco sound that saved him from himself…

Following his tour of duty in Vietnam in the late 60’s, Streets, disillusioned and alone, his Technicolor American dream shattered, drifted from city to city, making and breaking friendships in days over the most trivial matters such as, “Who the f$#@ got into my Choco Crunch!?” Eventually he made for the NYC where he found himself at home among the gay, black and Latino communities. It was here that he first encountered what was later to be popularly defined as ‘disco.’

“I’ll never forget it,” he once said. “Had I not accepted my friend’s invitation to check out this joint called the ‘Paradise Garage,’ my life wouldn’t have been the same, man. That first night I felt like I was rising to a higher state of consciousness. We were all one.” Mr. Streets has kept on rising ever since.

Shameless Audiocast 004 The Black Madonna

Shameless Audiocast is a monthly podcast featuring live shows, mixes and studio sessions presented by the Seattle based record label Shameless Audio. In this episode, we feature a live recording of The Black Madonna’s DJ set from Shameless’ 12th annual ‘My Bloody Valentine is Shameless.’

Dance music needs riot grrrls. Dance music needs Patti Smith. It needs DJ Sprinkles. Dance music needs some discomfort with its euphoria. Dance music needs salt in its wounds. Dance music needs women over the age of 40. Dance needs breastfeeding DJs trying to get their kids to sleep before they have to play. Dance needs cranky queers and teenagers who are really tired of this shit. Dance music needs writers and critics and academics and historians. Dance music needs poor people and people who don’t have the right shoes to get into the club. Dance music needs shirts without collars. Dance music needs people who struggled all week. Dance music needs people that had to come before midnight because they couldn’t afford full admission. Dance music does not need more of the status quo.

A sublime technician behind the decks, The Black Madonna is known for fluent and dynamic vinyl sets, which span from disco to techno. And then of course, there’s her inimitable energy, an infectious joy and ability to connect with the room, which along with her skill has cemented her as a beloved regular and crowd favorite at revered venues such as Panorama Bar. Her DJ mixes for Beats In Space, Little White Earbuds and Bicep’s Rinse FM show remain highly regarded, selected from deep crates and executed with precision.

Longtime Shameless fans will know of our not-so-secret love affair with the veteran San Francisco-based producer, vocalist, and DJ Mozaic, who has rocked the decks at many of our events over the years. He is a true DJ’s DJ, with a highly eclectic ear for all manner of sexy house and techno, and a favorite of everyone in our crew.

ABOUT DAVE DK:
DJ & producer Dave DK has been making waves in the electronic music scene for a couple of years now. Since the early 90’s he was fascinated by the upcoming techno movement, which eventually led to his own active initiation. 1995 was the starting point for the then 17 year old. Together with a longtime friend, Dave produced his first tracks and was involved in the organization of underground techno and house partys, constantly trying to spread and push new electronic music.

Searching for new electronic sounds every day and having honed his skills as a producer in his chosen home Berlin, Dave released his first record on Müller Records in 1998. His DJ activities had been highly pushed since that time. In 1999 he became a resident DJ at Tresor/Globus club in Berlin, later on also at the legendary Panorama Bar. Beside his remix productions for Beroshima and Skiebäck he released records on raum…musik., Decore, Lifetime Music and Cadeaux.

As Dave is an open minded person who resents musical limits, he doesn’t want to be reduced to one style. His sound simply is the result of different styles that have influenced him throughout the years. “I have a passion for the wide range between house and techno as well as pop music and dancefloor stuff of the early 90’s”, says Dave.
Though he’s elegantly juggling a variety of electronic music to create his own style, in his tracks he often combines tragic melodies with kickin’ grooves that transform your body into a twisting stampede of electricity, with trademark swing and warm funk.

The year 2000 can be marked as the first highlight in his career: his debut album “sensory overload“ had been released on Müller Records and there were musical excursions on Cologne’s Television label as well as on the Barcelona based Regular label. Dave is now currently recording for Moodmusic and also on Playhouse (a collaboration with Holger „Smash TV“ Zilske) which brings him even closer to his idea of electronic house tunes.
In November 2007 Dave released his second album „Lights and Colours“ on Moodmusic.

For Dave DK, music is a model of living in which he’s able to enhance his skills in order to realise his vision of modern electronic club and home entertainment – expect more fantastic music in the very near future. Late 2010 saw the release of Dave’s first Mix CD on Moodmusic called RETAKE ONE.

In 2013 Dave has been signed by Kompakt, releasing his first 12“ on the Cologne based imprint in July. His latest Track “Woolloomooloo” got picked by DJ Koze and has been released on his Pampa imprint.

Off Sonar Pezzner

That’s right, kiddies! We’re back for our second year of Thursday “Deck’d Out” summer parties on the Monkey Loft Rooftop!

Join us for a stupidly stacked lineup and a ridiculously awesome night!

Simple. Starts at 6p and goes ’til 10 or… FREE! Every. Thursday. You know how we do.

DECK’D OUT
THURSDAY JUNE 25th – 6p-11p
MONKEY LOFT
FREE!

Join Pezzner and friends to celebrate Pezzner’s Off Sonar Mix Release representing 4 Northwest producers along with many other talented artists.

FEATURING:
Pezzner (Visionquest, Systematic, Get Physical)
Doza (Sublevel, Get Physical)
Mat Anderson (KR, Get Physical)
Kid Hops (KEXP, Get Physical)

—————————-
With summer in full swing and Sonar just around the corner, and with it perhaps one of the most influential parts of Sonar, the many OFF Sonar events. So it’s time for Get Physical to pack their suitcases and suit up for another amazing weekend in Barcelona. This year they’ve got a special compilation prepared by Dave Pezzner himself. With 14 tracks and a fantastic DJ mix accompanying the compilation is set to be the perfect beachside companion. A couple of highlights include Catz N’ Dogz’s funky number, ‘Nobody Cares’, or Iori Wakasas super smooth burner ‘Organic Poet’. Dave Pezzner made room for a couple of his own works on the compilation as well, ‘Love Train’ and ‘Scissor In Law’. Both tracks fit in super well with the theme of the compilation, keeping a steady flow of energy while never banging unnecessarily hard. Tracks like ‘Grabbster’s Theme’ by René van Munster ensure relaxation while Spettro’s ‘Vision Board’ keeps the groove strong.

Memorial Day Hijinks – Yo Yo Yoga and daytime deck party at the Monkey Loft

April 22nd, 2015 by devinkelly

Shameless deck

In the spirit of doing ‘club land’ a little bit different, we’re planning a community focused day of music and dancing at the Monkey Loft on Memorial Day (Monday, May 25th). We are starting at 10:30 am with a special edition of our “Yo Yo Yoga” yoga and DJ event, similar to what we used to do before the Shameless Social at ETG, then hosting an awesome daytime dance party with some of Seattle’s favorite DJs.

Yo Yo Yoga will feature flow-based yoga with Datza Uldrike and tunes from Kadeejah Streets. In her classes, Datza strives to blend her love of music and movement with playful, yet challenging and creative sequencing, kind of like KDJ in his notoriously awesome and ecclectic DJ sets. We can’t think of a better place than the Monkey Loft to start a long day of dancing with some healthy celebration and detoxing.

The daytime dance action begins at noon! We asked 7 local crews to pick one DJ to represent them and as a result we’re thrilled to announce resident DJs from KEXP, Flammable, Studio 4/4, Starborne, Uniting Souls, Innerflight, 1L❤️V and of course Shameless. We realize there are many other fantastic hard working crews out there that we missed but hopefully this event will catch on and in turn we’ll have the opportunity to include others. Just not enough time in the day. In the meantime, read on for our inaugural Memorial Day Hijinks’ line up…

Riz Rollins, KEXP
Wesley Holmes, Flammable
Eric Allen, Studio 4/4
Michael Manahan, Starborne
Deepvibez, Uniting Souls
Rhines, Innerflight
Buckmode, 1L❤️V
Recess, Shameless

Happy Birthday Manahan!!
