Shameless Social – ETG Love!

Sunday, August 4th, 2013

Shameless is proud to present another awesome edition of the Social! This month, we are celebrating the four years of love we’ve had with the Electric Tea Garden (and Oseao before it) by booking some of the folks behind the other fantastic monthlies hosted there. As you all know, our connections to ETG and the crews throwing events there are deep. We were one of the first serious monthlies there when it was still Oseao, and one of the only ones to keep going after it officially became ETG. We have collaborated with the folks from Uniting Souls, Sweatbox, Innerflight and Proper on numerous occasions, and we love the stuffing out of everyone in ETG’s fun, competent and dedicated staff. We want to return the love they’ve all given us by hosting a special edition of the Social honoring all of them. We hope you come out and support!

Ctrl_Alt_Dlt (Sweatbox, SpaceRock, From 0-1)

Ctrl_Alt_Dlt is a Seattle based DJ originally from suburban Detroit. He went to his first rave party in ’99 and was strongly influenced by the sounds coming out of the city. He started DJing in 2001 and naturally gravitated towards the Midwest’s dark, stark style of techno. Today, Ctrl_Alt_Dlt rides the fine line between techno and house, playing sets consisting of cerebral, psychedelic tracks that wring maximal power from minimal elements. In addition to a long standing residency at Seattle’s Electric Tea Garden, he’s also a founding member of Sweatbox, a strictly techno-based productions crew who’ve spearheaded numerous weekly, monthly, and one-off parties over the last 5 years, bringing the likes of Mark Henning, Derek Plaslaiko, Mikael Stavöstrand, Camea, and Dan Bell, to name but a small fraction. His production game is still in it’s infancy but he’s got early releases out on From 0-1, Peloton Muisque, Innerflight, and Mindshift Records, with more action on the horizon. He is also a contributing writer for Plasmodium and The Stranger.

Xan Lucero (De La Crème / Flammable / Proper)

Almost 20 years in the dj booth doesn’t lie, and neither does the dance floor … which is where Xan Lucero has spent the last 2 decades playing House and Techno Music. He has spent the better part of the last 15 years travelling America exploring its dj booths and dance floors playing a global brand of Underground Dance Music ; both on solo adventures as well as with his partner, Atom Bryce as The Control Freeks . Together with Atom and on his own , he has held residencies all around America , made parties, had raves, run record stores, started disco’s, helped with various record labels and has generally lived his life playing music for people that want to hear it .

Xan has recently relocated back to Seattle and is enjoying a packed schedule of holding down resident duties for legendary West Coast House Music institution Flammable ,and has been picked up by the NW staple brand , De La Creme , as well as hosting his own monthly and weekly parties , and continues to guest and tour around America.

Manos (Innerflight Music)
www.innerflight.com

An integral part of the Innerflight record label and music collective, dj Manos exemplifies a fresh and funky groove that pulses with prismatic energy to stimulate the mind, open the heart, and move the body. Known for dosing Seattle dance floors with everything from acid-laden techno and house to reverie-inducing experimental and starryeyed electronica, his musical adventures traverse divergent sonic terrains but nearly always venture into psychedelic territory. At once sensuous and sentient, bizarre and macabre, his motley assortment of muses include the mid 90s Minneapolis rave scene, industrial, punk, and hip-hop albums of the late 80s/early 90s, classical music, and The Beatles. Presently, this penchant for dissent and the transgressive has aligned with his bohemian spirit, awakening an enigmatic yet unmistakable artistic sensibility that resonates on multiple levels with dancers and heads alike. Whether rocking an all-night underground party at the break of dawn or sharing the bill with such diverse megawatt talents as: The Flashbulb, Juan Atkins, Pezzner, Proem, dj Three, Noah Pred, Phil Western, Freaky Chakra, or Luke Solomon, Manos consistently funks up the dance floor, shaking the booties and expanding the minds of the vibrant Northwest underground of which he is a passionate and deeply rooted element.

Friday the 13th Shenanigans

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Starts at the Living Room tonight for a slo, nu, italo…disco monthly with EOC and Verse. No cover and yours truly will be their special guest. Can’t wait to share some of the slower jams I’ve been collecting!

Afterwards it’s off to one of Capitol Hill’s best new monthlies…more information here.

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!

Ms. Dank

“…the closest thing to a legitimate pop star from the Northwest, but still maintains something of a DIY aesthetic. That she is able to combine the two seemingly mutually exclusive ideas and has a knack for putting together catchy pop songs is part of what makes her so interesting and exciting to me.” ..
-Three Imaginary Girls 

We *heart* Lisa Dank and are excited to finally get her on the bill for one of our parties. Check out a recent release of hers on Shiny Disco Club’s Millennium Disco Comp. Vol 2. Loving the disco vibe!

Space Love

She’ll be performing live with DJ Nark of Nark Magazine at midnight this Saturday night at ETG.

FLEA MARKET REUNION at The Social Saturday Oct 22nd

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

Shameless welcomes the reunion of the infamous DJ collective FLEA MARKET to Electric Tea Garden! Formed in 2004 by Brent Tactic & Verse (aka Josh Roberts), Flea Market was a DJ collective dedicated to blending a multitude of genres ranging from electro, IDM, hip-hop and techno to deep house, glitch, tech-house and ghetto-tech. The idea was not to simply play one genre all night, but to cross-pollinate multiple genres into DJ set and make it the end result sound fun and exciting. Resident DJs Kadeejah Streets, Greg Skidmore, and Scratchmaster Joe joined Flea Market during its 2 ½ year residency at Chapel, where crazy nights of mad tag-teaming DJ sets ensued. Curious? Listen to a recording from a Flea Market party back in 2006: www.soundcloud.com/flea-market

Five years later, Flea Market reunites for one special night with The Social resident Recess. Expect lots of crazy tag-team sets from the Flea Market DJs all night long! Tactic headlines with what promises to be a fierce set largely focused on the growing moonbahton movement.

TACTIC = BEN TACTIC + BRENT TACTIC (Think 2wice, Bubblin – KC/PDX)

Tactic is a DJ and production team made up of Ben Tactic and Brent Tactic. The pair started working together in 2002 and immediately began to build on the success of their individual music careers. Ben’s background is based in electronic dance music and he cut his teeth playing warehouses, lofts and clubs all over the Midwest. Brent experienced great success in the hip-hop scene and split his time between djing and running an independent hip-hop label.

The two found common creative ground with the burgeoning music scene that ignored genre boundaries. Their focus became the best possible music from a broad cross section of club culture. Their 4 turntable dj sets blur the line between hip-hop, electronic and club music to get everyone’s asses shaking.

Tactic has proven just as productive in the studio as they are in the club. Their remixes and original productions have garnered international attention with plays on NYC’s East Village Radio and London’s prestigious KISS FM and BBC Radio1 as well as getting in rotation in the dj sets of Diplo, Sinden, Tittsworth, Starkey, Jackmaster, Dave Nada, Cosmo Baker and Eli Escobar. To date they have had remixes and original tracks released on labels such as Mad Decent, Dress 2 Sweat (Numbers), Starkey’s label Slit Jockey, Palms Out Sounds, Datura Records and their own label Think 2wice. With Ben now living in PDX running the groundbreaking night Bubblin and Brent residing in KC, this is a rare chance to see them perform together.

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.

Gunnar Lockwood

Just before J.Phlip played her surprise guest DJ set at last months Social (ETG), Gunnar threw down a fierce live set that had the entire dance floor fired up. In case you missed it, Joe Bellingham’s Sounds from the Sound podcast this month features a fantastic example of why you should be paying attention to this up and coming live techno producer/performer.
