Dance yrself clean

Friday, December 30th, 2011

New Year’s Eve parties usually involve some serious planning. Otherwise you may find yourself unsuccessfully attempting to hail a cab at 11:49pm with just minutes to get across town before the clock hits midnight. We’ve all been there. This year Shameless recommends the following parties and yes, if you plan accordingly you may even be able to hit them all! Either way, they each represent a piece of Seattle’s vibrant underground dance music community that’s like no other city in this country. Ok maybe we’re a little biased. But we love you Seattle. Have a safe and happy new year!

See you at breakfast!

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.

Max Cooper headlining this Friday’s “Afterglow”

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Max Cooper is a rare, versatile and forward-thinking gem in the increasingly compartmentalized and somewhat cold world of dance music.  Where many rising producers establish themselves by carving out narrow niche sounds or quickly adapting to the latest trend, Max is constantly pushing musical boundaries while also embracing a rich history of dance music.  His production crosses the gamut from quirky, syncopated late night techno, to peak-hour tech-house, to ethereal, early morning ambient and IDM, all with his distinctly rich analog sounding synthlines and oldschool progressive house sentiments.  His chart topping original productions and remixes for artists as diverse as Hot Chip, Portishead, Sasha, John Tejada, Extrawelt, and many others are garnering him stellar reviews and a well-deserved international fan base.  Shameless is incredibly excited to be hosting Max at our “AfterGlow” Decibel Festival after hours, late night this Friday at Seattle’s Electric Tea Garden.  Joining him will be DJ Fame (New York), Eric Sharp (SF), Cyan Wave (Seattle) and our own Recess and Levi Clark.  Get there early, as we are only doing tickets at the door and there is A LOT of hype for this show!

In the meantime, click the link below to check out Max’s great live set of all original production, “Modus,” available for download on his Soundcloud account.

Back in time! Shameless Afterparty at Decibel Festival 2006

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Hard to believe that we’re fast approaching the 8th year of Decibel Festival here in Seattle. Shameless and Decibel both grew up at the same time and have collaborated on numerous events over the years. In fact, some would argue that Decibel Festival itself sprouted from the grassroots of the local electronic music communities while being spearheaded by it’s fearless (and quite ambitious) leader, Sean Horton (aka Nordic Soul). Each year it grows and each year the reputation of the festival builds to it’s current internationally recognized status. The good peoples within the organization are family and those that contribute from the outside are simply passionate about the music, the community and our beautiful city of Seattle. We’re proud to be here and are looking forward to welcoming our guests to our little corner of the world. There will be more features to come, but in the meantime, here’s a little video clip from Decibel 2006. It was our 3rd year in a row throwing official afterparties for the festival and this particular event took place at The Mercury which is a long established underground industrial/goth club. Ahh the memories! Tekgnosis was performing a live set behind the barbed wire fencing of the DJ booth at around 4am or so. One of the members of Tekgnosis went on to form Nerd Revolt, which is a fantastic electronic music duo based in SF consisting of m.0 and the iLL.F.O. Be sure to check them out too!
