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+)

My Bloody Valentine is Shameless #9 Recap

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Thanks to everyone who made it out to our anniversary/vday party last month.  Because of you we raised just over $2,000 for Lifelong AIDS Alliance and the Space Virgins!

The energy created while collaborating with so many people in a fun house party setting was incredible.  We’ll see you all next year for our BIG ten year anniversary.

Shame off! Game on!

 

Decibel Festival Afterglow with Never Enough

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

It’s 5:15 am at the Rebar on Saturday night (or is that considered Sunday morning?) and the dance floor is packed. Cajmere, looking cool in his shades, takes a lively Seattle crowd on a trip through Chicago house before handing over the decks to Detroit’s Mike Huckaby. From there, Mike carries the dancefloor until the bar reopens when bloody mary’s and mimosas start flowing freely. Happy Decibel!!

Once again, Seattle proved to the world that electronic music has a home here. We here at Shameless have been honored to have played a part in Decibel Festival each year since it’s incarnation 8 years ago. It’s been an incredible journey watching the Festival grow and yet still remain solidly connected to the local underground music scene. This  year it was particularly exciting for us to return to the Electric Tea Garden for the recommended Friday night db afterparty. Our sincerest apologizes to those of you that weren’t able to make it in. The venue filled up faster than we had anticipated and the management decided to hold the door. But with our new friends from Rock It Science LabsMax Cooper and Cyanwave holding it down, the party kept going until past 8am so hopefully you came by later if you weren’t able to make it in right away. Much love to the ETG staff for hosting.

It was also a joy to collaborate with our good friends at Innerflight. Rebar hadn’t ever held a raging afterparty before and we’re so grateful they took a chance on us. Combining one of our favorite venues with one of our favorite local crews, meant magic was inevitable. Joe Bellingham set the stage with a live set (check out the link below to download) while Holger Zilske of Smash TV kept the crowd moving until 4am. From there…well, you needed to be there to know. Or wait until the official video recap which is coming soon.

In the meantime…Thank you to all of our friend, supporters and volunteers over the years. Thank you Decibel. Thank you Seattle.

Here is an exclusive LINK to the recording of Joe Bellingham’s Live Set.

You gotta get outta there!

Shameless/Innerflight Throwdown!

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.

Esthetic Evolution #6- Twin Springs, ID

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Ever wanted to party with a 1000 of your closest friends? Ok ok… maybe not all of them are your best friends, but there’s likely only a couple of degrees of separation between them. That’s how it works out here in the Northwest and that applies to Seattle, Portland, Boise and beyond. That closeness and cohesive network is one of the reasons our corner of the country has been gaining such a positive reputation for having an incredibly rich and creative music community. The folks at Esthetic Evolution in beautiful Twin Springs, ID have done a wonderful job building up their annual music and arts festival. So much so that they’ve almost sold ALL 1000 of their available tickets! As of this blog post there are less than 50 tickets available and they’re only located at record stores in Boise.

But fret not. Shameless has one ticket available as a giveaway for some lucky reader. Email Shamelessinseattle2@gmail.com with “EE Loves Me” in the subject heading and the first person to write gets the ticket. (EDITED TO ADD… Congratulations to AshleyZ who was quick to respond and won the EE ticket giveaway!)
