Dave’s pictures are here! Check them out on Facebook and share with other breakfast clubbers and friends!

Our good friends Dave Matthews and Vitamin Dee both did an incredible job documenting the madness that was the Decibel weekend edition of the Breakfast Club. We thought a few weeks before the New Year’s Day Breakfast Club would be the perfect opportunity to share them with you. Enjoy!

Smash TV!


As most of you know, Shameless has started our very own record label, Shameless Audio, which premiered with an OUTRAGEOUS launch party at Seattle’s Electric Tea Garden on September 28th. We managed to throw a packed-to-the-gills blowout party from 9pm to 6am, despite it being a stacked Decibel Festival weekend with dozens of other events going on throughout the city. Our old friends and dancefloor heroes Smash TV played what could only be described as a completely ridiculous, totally face melting six hour set, with many attendees staying from start to finish. Those who showed up early got grab bags filled with all sorts of swag. Those there at the peak of the night got to hear Smash TV premier their remix of Shameless member Joe Bellingham’s “Our Reflection Blues,” the first release on the new label. Those there at the end got to order themselves a drink and stumble off into the sunrise sporting a new pair of Shameless sunglasses. It was an affair to be remembered.

For pics from the night, please visit Dave Matthew’s Flickr page page or Andi Dean’s pics on the Electric Tea Garden Facebook page.

To check out the release, please visit our Shameless Audio Soundcloud page.

To pre-order the release or pick up some of your very own Shameless swag, please visit our new Bandcamp site.

Thanks for ten years of love and support for our crew! Here’s to ten more for the label!

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.

Hive Mind Halloween XV – Pictures

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

A note from the good peoples at Hive Mind…

A GIANT thank you to everyone who came out for Hive Mind Halloween this year, it was an unparalleled success! We had over 1,300 people come through the door and netted over $24,000 for our two causes: Room to Read (building schools in poor villages in Nepal, Cambodia, Laos and neighbors as well as providing scholarships for young girls) and Youngstown (a community center providing arts education to at-risk youth and offices for environmental and arts organizations).

Of course, in addition to you all who came, we want to thank all the people who volunteered their time to make it happen: Randy, Sara, Laura and the whole crew from Youngstown, Philthy Sanchez and the Camp In Bed crew, Black Rock City Animal Control, Hippocampus, the Game of Clue, Levi Clark and the DJ’s, Cam and the bar crew, and all the kind folks who came Friday, Saturday and Sunday to help out.

If you took pictures, please post them to Flickr with the tag “hivemind09” so other folks can enjoy. We’re already seeing some show up. If you use another service, please send us a link to your photo album, and we’ll post it to the Hive Mind 09 web site (

Finally, a lot of folks have been asking if that was really the last Hive Mind Halloween party. We did honestly plan on it being so: it’s grown from a 20 person house party to a 1,300 person multi-stage event over 15 years, and that’s a lot of work. But after seeing how much enthusiasm there is, how so many groups were willing to kick in their time, and what a great time everyone had, we’re looking for a way to keep the fire lit without burning out. And if it does happen again, we promise to have shorter bar lines!

Luckily, we’ve got a year to think about it…

‘Where the Wild Beats Are’ Pictures

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

HUGE thanks to everyone that came out to the ‘Wild Beats’ show at Chop Suey Friday night. It was so much fun and so really weird all at once. I was both thrilled and shocked to not just see so many people out for essentially a breakcore show, but to see so many people get into the theme and the ridiculousness of it all. Lots of different scenes coming together for that one. Also, a lot of friends/fam kicked down their time and energy to make it happen.

Glampfest 2009 Pictures

Friday, August 21st, 2009

Some might lovingly refer to Glampfest 2009 as “Lampfest” this year because of the no fire rule that was in effect. Others might remember it as “Bugfest” because of the inordinate amount the flies that were bugging us during the day (we’re guessing that had to do with the extra hot summer we’re having). Either way, it was another epic, fun filled weekend with our friends. Click any of the images below to see more from Dave Matthews’ incredible collection of photos.

Pictures from Balls Out! Series 2 w/ A1 Bassline

Saturday, September 20th, 2008

Had a blast last Friday with A1 Bassline making his Seattle debut. The dude is mad talented and I think we’re just seeing the beginnings of a bright future. Also, finally got to smash that disco ball pinata that Sean Williams and Menami put together this past summer. Thanks again to the Balls Out crew for holding everything down. Thanks also to everyone that came out to get down. Click the picture below to see more!


Also, get ready for Balls Out! Series 3… “Warriors…come out to plaaaaayeee!”
