14 Years Later

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

It’s hard to believe it’s been 14 years since Shameless began it’s little Saturday night dance party downstairs at the Alibi Room. Since then the city has changed faster than sub genres of electronic dance music. We originally started out in 2003 to fill a niche of music that wasn’t being represented at the time. Almost a decade and a half later, as the city overflows with creative talent, we continue to hold the torch high in an attempt to light the way. We still have so much to learn, but one thing is for certain, we do this for the art, for the community and yes, as cliche as it may sound, for the love. In other words, for the beautiful creative mutants that don’t always have a place to call home. In our fragmented society, regardless of the styles of music being represented, we believe it’s a niche that still desparately needs to be filled.

Thank you Seattle! You’ve been so kind to us. We look forward to celebrating 14 years of LOVE on February 10th with our dear friends from Berlin. This will be a smaller, private, invite only event. Please reach out to your Shameless family for more information on how to RSVP. <3

The Stranger Suggests “Bullshit-Free Techno & House”

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

Deepchild

We’re of course honored to have our little record release party featured in The Stranger’s coveted “Suggests” section. Many thanks for the local publication for the love. Hope to see you out this Friday June 27th!

Read on or click here to check it out…

What: House music that really means it and nothing else
Where: Kremwerk
Who suggests it: Emily Nokes
Why: Since our resident electronic-music expert Dave Segal is on vacation, I thought I would step into his vegan running shoes for the week and get my zeros and ones on. I remember he once described Deepchild as “bullshit-free techno and house,” and though my ears are not expert in this genre, the glowing warm space sounds oozing through a shimmering matrix of rhythm do, indeed, seem free of bullshit. Tonight celebrates the release of Seattle producer Codebase’s Down for the Count (on local label Shameless Audio), on which Deepchild, Distal, Aur0ra, and Adlib are featured. Plus, doesn’t Kremwerk seem neat? (Kremwerk, 1809 Minor Ave, kremwerk.com, 9 pm, 21+)

Further Records Founder Chloe Harris Rocks The Social

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

This Saturday Shameless is proud to present Further Records founder Chloe Harris. Further Records has got the right idea. They dedicate themselves to releasing all formats CDs, MP3s, LPs & Cassettes. The Cassette series got them some major attention from Resident Advisor last summer. All of  their releases are pretty much hand crafted. They make all there own album covers. Mark Cul from Further Records, records all the cassette tapes himself. Chloe sometimes even hand paints the LP covers. All of there releases can be purchased  from their online shop of their website. Also their Bandcamp page is a great place to chill out and hear some great music. Check out Chloe’s latest release from her Bandcamp entitled ‘Books’ under the moniker Raica here. Super chill Ambient Idm style with a little touch of dub.

Monday, March 21st, 2011

Please join us on Saturday, March 26th for ROUND 2 of the recently revitalized Shameless Social! This month, we’re incredibly excited to be hosting our good friends from the ever-talented Innerflight crew in a tag-team DJ session of epic proportions. Each Shameless resident will be going head-to-head with an Innerflight resident of YOUR CHOICE! That’s right, you get to vote on the pairing!Our crews have been good friends for years, and most of us have played together at a variety of shows. But we’ve only gone head-to-head one other time, at Balls Out, an old Shameless monthly at the ReBar. Balls were out! Beats were dropped! Words were exchanged! Costumes were worn! Star-spangled banners were played! It was an outright deluge of dance music insanity. In the very end, there were no clear winners… except the dancers still standing when the lights were turned on. This time may prove to be even crazier…

-THE CONTENDERS-
Repping INNERFLIGHT:
J-Sun (AKA Frequent Flyer)
Kadeejah Streets (AKA the Wolfman’s Brotha)
Manos (AKA the hands of fun)
Rhines (AKA High hitpoint Harry)

Repping SHAMELESS:
Recess (AKA Our Fearless Founder)
Levi Clark (AKA Baby Daddy)
Joe Bellingham (AKA the Mad Baker)
Adlib (AKA Dr. D-vo!)

How will it turn out this time? Who will win? Shameless? Innerflight? one of the dynamic duos? The ETG barstaff? Your hangover? You? The answer is that nobody knows! And the only way you’re gonna find out is through voting (below), attending the show and getting down with your bad selves.

TO VOTE, PLEASE VISIT:http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/V2KY5N6

We will announce the results of the survey a few days prior to the event, then draw straws for time slots. Come early and stay late, because we assure you some awesome and unexpected shenanigans are gonna go down all night long.

SeXXXy Time!

Jimmy Edgar

On Saturday February 26th we welcome back The Shameless Social to the Electric Tea Garden (ETG). This fun filled monthly event returns after a brief intro last year at ETG and will be kicked off with a highly anticipated live appearance by !K7/Warp artist Jimmy Edgar. Come early and connect with your Shameless friends and then dance the night away at one of Capitol Hills most intimate underground venues.

Jimmy Edgar in The Stranger

Listen to Hot, Raw, Sex (!K7)

Lover. Fighter. Prophet. Freak magnet. Time-traveler. Musician, photographer and designer Jimmy Edgar is a wayward star-child streaking across the cosmic dance-floor. Endowed with a supernatural feel for futuristic funk, the Detroit native has been bleeping and grinding about the Milky Way since he was a teenage humanoid. While his peers were worrying about their grades and popularity, Edgar was spinning alongside his hometown’s DJ heroes and programming intricate beats that were unquestionably interplanetary communication disguised as dance music. In 2001 at the tender of 18, his hyper-sexed microchip stylings caught the ear of Warp, where he cranked out his brand of amped-up laptop funk for the next eight years, culminating in the full-length classic “Color Strip”. Now 26, Edgar is shaking things up at German beat boutique !K7. “When I was 18 and signed with Warp, my next goal was !K7 for some reason. I believe I attracted !K7 to me through the ‘Law of Attraction’. I think this is going to be an incredible journey.” The new album “XXX” is out at the end of July and its New Jack Swing winks as much at Minneapolis, Compton and Paris as it does Detroit or Berlin. On new turf, Edgar’s sonic prowess takes on a leaner, more radio-ready shine. “Function of Your Love” zips and struts about like something Andre Cymone might have cooked up for Jody Watley in their chart-topping heyday. On “Hot, Raw, Sex” Edgar lets the synth stabs and hand claps fly fast and loose. “In My Color” has the percolating, crystalline bounce of I:Cube’s late 90’s French Touch. “Midnite Fone Call” is the kind of lush “Quiet Storm” that Alex Gopher might kill for. “Push”, with its staccato rhythm and come-hither incantations would make Timbaland blush. The instrumental interlude “One Twenty Detail”, runs Kraftwerk through a low-rider worthy break-beat filter and “Vibration” sounds like pornographic Morse Code tapped out by Egyptian Lover. While the album is largely a one-man show, “XXX” is not without accomplices. A Latvian girl named Anet sings on “Physical Motion” and a rising new R&B singer from NYC signed to XL recordings, Azealia, ad libs on the same track. “Whenever I have worked with women and art, they have this way of putting balance into everything.” The album’s sophistication should come as no surprise, considering the mix of elements that factored in its creation. “Celibacy. Love and Loss. A myriad of intense relationships. Home studio on mostly analog equipment, finished digitally. Some recorded on tape. Some recorded frustrated, sick, broke, pissed off, in love.” Referring to other influences, Edgar adds, “I learned piano from black dudes at the Baptist church in Detroit. They taught me to extend my fingers and play from the heart.” As for Kraftwerk, the Belleville Three and the rest of the early electronic pioneers he says, “Those guys were tryin to make Stevie Wonder more danceable. They were tryin to make Prince with that equipment. That is what I do essentially.” What Edgar does essentially and very well is make your body move. Most of the time he does it alone, but there has been no shortage of willing partners. In addition to an array of remixes for everyone from pop acts like Will Smith and Scott Hardkiss to indie darlings like emo-electro duo Purple Crush and new wave soul man Theophilus London – including 2009’s cruising-with-the-top-down jams “Blindfolded” and “Higher” – he famously turned Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” inside out into a blistering workout from beyond. Deeply inspired by Jacko and incapable of standing still for very long himself, the ever-restless Edgar is eager to take his musical peep show on the road this summer. As if his beats and dancing weren’t enough, just to make his seductive intent perfectly clear, Edgar adds “I designed 12 florescent neon tubes to make an “XXX” on stage.” Ultimately, the best thing about Jimmy Edgar’s intergalactic funk is that for all its mystical kink, it’s solidly the kind of music you could easily imagine today’s pop tarts making. If Beyonce, Lady Gaga or Fergie had any sense, their million dollar booties would have Jimmy Edgar on speed dial already.
