***THREE (Hallucienda)***
Born and raised in a musical home in Pittsburgh, Christopher Milo then moved south where musical experiences at the roller skating rink gave birth to DJ Three steering him on a path to become a pioneer of the fertile Florida rave scene of the 90’s before rising up and relocating to New York City in the 00’s where he’s since held residencies at institutions like NYC’s Twilo, the famed Robots parties at Cielo and now at Output in Brooklyn all the while being a global regular at underground mainstays from Japan’s Labyrinth Festival and Get Lost to fabric in London and Club Eleven in Tokyo. He’s known and loved known the world over for his eclectic underground musical stylings both as a DJ, label head and artist having been involved in beloved U.S. imprints Hallucination Recordings, Hallucination Limited and now Hallucienda while at the same time having produced underground staples like the Three A.M. Burning Spear remix of Rabbit In The Moon – Out Of Body Experience in the 90’s and the perennial underground classic Second Hand Satellites – Multiple Mirrors E.P. in the the early 00’s. His stylistic range made him the perfect choice to curate and mix the “Laterna Magika” DJ mix portion this summers Visionquest Ultraviolet 1 compilation on which he draws upon the labels vinyl only material and the more hidden gems lurking in Visionquest’s own diverse catalog. Visionquest Ultraviolet 1 was released in late June and Three’s “Laterna Magika” mix is receiving rave reviews from Mixmag (Comp Of The Month honors), XLRR, Data Transmission, Ibiza Voice, RA, but, most importantly from you —- the dancers and music lovers —- setting the tone for even more adventurous DJ sets this fall and winter.

Shameless is proud to present the


Heartbreaker’s Hall
Santiago & Bushido (PottyMouth, Cajual Records -CHI)

Amidst the countless DJ’s and producers working in the burgeoning Chicago house scene, Santiago and Bushido stand apart from the rest with their unique blend of tech-tinged house beats and killer remixes that are becoming quite the sought-after commodity. Since teaming up as a production duo in 2003, Chris Santiago and Tim Bush have dropped numerous EP’s and remixes on some of the most well respected labels around including Potty Mouth, Om, Ultra, and have generated a significant following in the process. Their unique sound and flawless DJ sets have helped to establish Santiago & Bushido as one of the premier acts in dance music today.
Their track ‘Head Trick’ was one of the true dance anthems of 2008, a major crossover success receiving play and charting from many of the globe’s top DJ’s such as Moby, DJ Tiesto, Switch, Armin Van Buren, and Diplo. Head Trick was the 1 most downloaded song in January 2008, and the 8 most downloaded of the entire year on, the world’s top online site for electronic music. Santiago & Bushido followed the success of Head Trick with a number of critically acclaimed releases and remixes including a massive remix of Kaskade’s Billboard 1 hit single Move For Me, a reworking of Larry Tee’s Louis Vuitton, and their original single Can’t Be Wrong which has been licensed to numerous complications such as Ministry of Sound. In addition to belting out club tracks Santiago and Bushido have worked with Om recording artist Colette on her artist album “Push” for which they wrote and produced multiple songs including the album’s single, “If,” which was licensed for an episode of Real World for “MTV” and can also be purchased as a ring tone from Verizon.

Having been intimately involved with music his entire, life Bushido picked up his first pair of turntables and sampler on his 16th birthday and immediately went to work mixing, sampling, and cutting up any piece of vinyl he could get his hands on. His carefully crafted DJ sets caught the ears of some of Chicago’s nightlife elite and he soon found himself playing all over the city. Tim spent his days working at Chicago Recording Company, sharing the same recording space with the likes of R.Kelly and Smashing Pumpkins among others. By working alongside some of Chicago’s most well respected engineers at CRC, Bushido honed his engineering and production prowess until opportunity knocked.

While Bushido was mastering his craft, Santiago was working his way up the Chicago’s nightlife hierarchy. Within one year of playing live gigs, he secured a Friday night residency at Zentra Nightclub’s House Arrest, and within a year he would be playing to Chicago’s most musically educated and up-for-it partiers as an exclusive resident at “World’s Best Dance Club”, Smartbar, joining the halls of dance icons that have enjoyed similar slots there (including other current residents Kaskade and Justin Long).

As DJ’s, Santiago & Bushido draw influence from their Chicago house background and apply harder and heavier elements to their sound. Santiago & Bushido are regularly headlining and appearing at some of the best parties in the US and beyond including Avalon in LA, Decibel Festival in Seattle, and Bed in Miami. Recent shows have them playing along side some of the hottest talent around today such as Deadmau5, Crookers, and Kaskade. Their 2009 dates include a multi-city tour in Australia, multiple trips to Europe, and regular gigs in North America.

My Bloody Valentine Is Shameless this Friday! Featured artist: J. Phlip (Dirtybird)

Monday, February 8th, 2010


It’s that time of the year – the annual My Bloody Valentine is Shameless party is Friday, February 12 at Chop Suey, and Shameless is very excited to have special guest J. Phlip of the Dirtybird crew as part of the action-packed lineup! Chosen as one of URB Magazine’s Next 100 of 2009, J. Phlip has quickly established herself as a tried-and-true party starter and swifly rising producer and remixer.

J. Phlip (Jessica Phillippe) spent her teens dancing at numerous clubs and parties in her hometown of Champaign, Illinois and nearby Chicago, where she enjoyed the Windy City’s iconic house and underground hip-hop scene. Her exposure to such legends as DJ Heather, Derrick Carter, and Sneak had a marked influence on her musical development and eventually inspired her to procure decks herself at age 19 while attending the University of Illinois, where she studied – and excelled – in the Systems Engineering program.

During her time playing out in Chicago about five years ago, she met Justin Martin at a gig. She traded one of her DJ mix CDs for his collection of his own tracks, which she eagerly started playing (and specifically learned how to use CDJs to play then out). A subsequent meeting soon afterwards with the rest of the Dirtybird crew in Miami – Martin, Sammy D, and Claude Von Stroke – solidified a friendship that eventually brought her out to San Francisco for gigs that, in turn, compelled her to make a permanent move to the Bay Area and join the crew officially. She loves the freedom of expression that the San Francisco scene offers to play however she wants, whether it be “weird or harder or deeper” and currently plays every Thursday in San Francisco at the legendary Endup and at quarterly Dirtybird parties in SF at Mezzanine.

Now a fully-fledged Dirtybird artist, she has toured with Claude Von Stroke and released solid remix tracks on the label. As her Soundcloud page attests, she describes her musical stylings in a myriad of ways – but usually attaches the prefix “hybrid booty” onto each description: “hybrid booty techno” and “hybrid booty electro.” She explains that Claude Von Stroke originally tagged the term upon her DJ mixes, so she decided to use it on the multifarious genres she favors. But, and more simply put, she just likes “to keep the music fun and BOOTY shakin’ whether it be techy or housey or dubby or whatever” in her DJ mixes and original productions.

J. Phlip’s productions fit in comfortably with the signature Dirtybird tech-house sound that launched her labelmates Claude Von Stroke, Tim Green, and Justin and Christian Martin into worldwide notoriety. Take her remix of Luca Lozano’s Berlinetta” – it maintains a solidly Dirtybird-like backbeat and bassline while throwing in waves of subtle yet powerful tribal syncopated beats and oceanic synth fills that weave in and out of the track. She takes this pattern a few steps further with her remix of the Claude Von Stroke/Bootsy Collins collaboration “The Greasy Beat.” Here, an incessantly funky and blippy beat and bassline is ever-prevalent and builds ever-so-subtle momentum, punctuated with periodic old school James Brown-esque that unfolds into a Bootsy-powered preaching to the masses that suddenly, drastically, peaks and unleashes the floodgates that is sure to make the dance floor go apeshit.

Her last appearance in Seattle was during last year’s Decibel Festival, where she rocked the waters on the Uniting Souls boat party (even while braving the flu through it all). Her appearance at My Bloody Valentine Is Shameless may be the last Seattle appearance of J. Phlip for awhile, as she’s planning to move to Berlin this spring for five months to spread her gospel even further. Based on what we’ve heard thus far, look for J. Phlip to do even bigger things in the next few years.
