Bringing the people together to dance. This will be an event for fans of the underground…

Want to learn more about KMLN? Read on…

An international force and shapeshifting duo, KMLN (pronounced “Kameleon”) unites Italian
producer/multi-instrumentalist Christopher Tooker and Canadian DJ/fashion designer Shawna Hofmann into a genre defying electronic sound that showcases their pioneering talent and global inspiration. May it be a prime time or sunrise set, they adapt to any surrounding and deliver unexpected genre-bending performances often featuring instrumentalists and dancers on stage, bridging the electronic and live music worlds and creating an unparalleled dance floor experience.

As world travelers and cultural observers, KMLN creates an astonishing trip through time and music, blending elements of deep house/techno and global/future bass, moving through tempos with layers of intricate lush melodies, rolling basslines and organic rhythms. With releases on Crosstown Rebels, Endless, Touch of Class and its own label KMLN records, their music is played by many DJs including Acid Pauli, M.A.N.D.Y, Jamie Jones, Damian Lazarus, Thugfucker and Luca Bacchetti.
Birthed in Berlin in 2011 by Christopher and now ex-partner Alex Moaca, KMLN quickly rose to fame because of its innovative addition of live musicians, which previously wasn’t part of the Berlin electronic scene. Within six months, they played all of Berlin’s world famous clubs
followed by shows in Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Sweden, France and Italy throughout 2012.

In 2013, Christopher relocated to Los Angeles and a new evolution of KMLN was born when he joined forces with Shawna Hofmann, a trend-setting architect of the Bay Area and West Coast music/art scene. Drawing from a wide range of influences, the new union of KMLN quickly won crowds over at some of the biggest festivals and clubs in Mexico, West Coast USA, Canada, Indonesia, Thailand and Japan including BPM, Time & Space, Secret Island, Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis Gathering, Burning Man, Shambhala, Bass Coast, and KMLN’s own world-
traveling party “Electric Safari”.
About Christopher Tooker

Christopher grew up in a very unique environment. His Finnish/American father authored several books on unconditional love, and his mother owns the first fully sustainable bed & breakfast on the island of Sardinia, Italy. Much of his youth was spent traveling with his dad on magnificent journeys worldwide to witness sacred sights throughout England, Ireland, North Africa, France, and 3 coast to coasts in America. At the age of 9, his passion for dance brought him to perform Italian shows as Michael Jackson. As a self-taught musician from the age of 14 with years spent in bands and extensive touring, Christopher was part of two successful Italian bands (Sony BMG – Warner), with several albums and videos that had rotation on MTV and All Music Italy. During 10 years of experimenting with genres and instruments, he created a 7 piece jazz-improv act, was the singer of a stoner rock band, a guitar and bass player in a successful electro-pop group and the drummer of a “Tool” inspired Italian heavy metal band. In 2010, upon moving to Berlin and hearing its innovative electronic soundscape, he immediately became inspired to merge his musical past with the sounds of the future, creating KMLN.

About Shawna Hofmann
Shawna’s passion for music began in early childhood attending the Winnipeg Music Folk festival in Canada, where she was exposed to musical genius from all over the planet, refining her ear for the origins of all types of music. At the age of 16, she hitchhiked throughout Mexico supporting herself with carving found materials and seeds into jewelry. Next came Thailand where she learned to fire dance and tattoo, then India to follow her passion for Vipassana meditation and eventually lived and traveled throughout Europe. Upon her return to America and settling down in the SF/Bay Area, the art of fire dancing, which was still unseen to most, turned her from being an introverted hermit to a sought after performer. Constructing her own costumes lead to her own fashion line that became a vastly trend-setting force in the underground festival scene worldwide. In 1999, she began performing as a DJ brewing eclectic fusions of future/global bass, moombahton, dancehall, cumbia, house, techno, disco, UK funky and tropical. She quickly became a favorite West Coast DJ and for 15 years, has been an inspirational force, cross-pollinating through various West Coast scenes and pioneering the cutting edge.

FREE “Bacon Jam” remixes from Joe Bellingham and Devin Kelly

Monday, December 22nd, 2014


In true holiday spirit, Shameless Audio is giving away two previously unreleased remixes of Luke Manda’s “Bacon Jam.” Joe Bellingham’s mix features his classic sexy, deep house vibe, this time with a heavy dose of oldschool Underworld sounds. Devin Kelly (AKA Adlib)’s “Mimosa Makeover” takes the track in a more acidy, morning tech house direction. Listen to them on Soundcloud!

Both tracks are totally appropriate for our upcoming annual daytime New Year’s Day deck party, The Breakfast Club,” at Seattle’s now legendary Monkey Loft. It seems only fitting, given that the original Bacon Jam premiered at the Decibel edition of the Breakfast Club back in September, where headliner Christian Martin blew the party out of the water with his remix of the track. You can find Luke Mandala’s original and the Christian Martin remix on Beatport!

TBCNYD will be headlined by Christian’s dirtybird label-mate, Worthy, with a ton of great NW supporters and Joe, Devin and the rest of the Shameless gang opening the deck up at 5am. Come early and stay laaaaate.

Shameless Audiocast 001 Joe Bellingham

Monday, October 13th, 2014

We’ve been super busy over here at Shameless HQ with all our releases, parties and ridiculous promotion shenanigans over the last several months. If that wasn’t enough, we’ve decided to start celebrating the artists and DJs on our expanding Shameless Audio label roster with a new semi-monthly podcast!

The inaugural edition is a live set by the prolific and ever intrepid Joe Bellingham, featuring a selection of his classic, Joe B deep and spacey cuts, loaded with solid kicks, housey grooves and trippy vocal samples. It ends with Joe’s so far unreleased remix of our last outing, Luke Mandala’s Bacon Jam.

Look out for more DJ mixes and live sets in the coming months. Thanks for listening and supporting underground Northwest music. Share the love if you like it!

Support Shameless at Hempfest and win free tickets to the Breakfast Club!

Monday, August 11th, 2014

(click the picture to check out the event!)

Shameless members Joe Bellingham, Adlib and Gato Negro are joining some of Seattle’s best and brightest DJs at the Starborne stage of this year’s Hempfest, running August 15th-17th, 2014. Hempfest is the “world’s largest cannabis law reform event.” This year should be an affair to remember, given the huge reforms that have taken place in Washington since 2012.

We invite all of you to join in celebrating with us at this year’s “protestival,” and want to use it as an opportunity to thank our most committed supporters. We will be playing from 2pm-5pm on Saturday, August 16th. The first five people to take pictures of themselves with Joe Bellingham, Adlib or Gato Negro at the Starborne stage during our showcase and post it to our Facebook group will win free admission to the Breakfast Club, our insanely awesome annual daytime party, this time smack dab in the middle of Decibel Festival weekend!* The very first person will get some free Shameless swag, too (that’s promotional material, not the other stuff). Links for the Breakfast Club and our Facebook group are below.

Hempfest is world’s largest cannabis law reform event. Our good friends at Starborne Shows have taken over the mantle from Dancesafe in running one of the event’s TWO electronic music areas (the other hosted by Bassdrop). Starborne will also be hosting showcases by our friends with innerflight, High and Tight, Deep N Bass, Uniting Souls, Flammable and Decibel. In other words, some of Seatlte’s finest purveyors of dance music shenanigans. It should be all sorts of fun!

To join the Shameless Productions Facebook group, please click here!.

To check out the Breakfast Club (featuring Christian Martin, Luke Mandala, Codebase and many more), please click here!.

*We will only give out a total of five tickets and they will be first tag, first serve. This includes people in group shots.

Saturday, July 12th, 2014

(click the picture for more information)

Shameless is proud to once again be reppin’ hard at the Photosynthesis festival, Washington’s favorite underground gathering of hippies, ravers and freaky festie kids. We have a long commitment to the event, and co-produced its now legendary third year at the Dragonsphere Event Center in Randall. This year, Photo is wrapping up three inspiring years at the Hobuck Beach Resort on the Makah Indian Reservation and moving to a virgin venue, the Masonic Family Park, a gorgeous, sprawling, tree and creek-covered property just over an hour outside of Seattle. Prepare to be blown away!

Shameless residents Joe Bellingham and Adlib will both be performing prominent sets at this year’s festival. Joe will be playing a live project with a few exciting surprises at 3:00 am on Saturday night. Adlib will be playing the main stage at 10:15 pm on Friday, the first 4/4 set of the weekend. They are joining headliners such as Mikael Stavostrand, KiloWatts, Jay Tripwire, the Flashbulb, Ben Annand, Halo Refuser, and Shameless friends from throughout the Northwest and beyond.

General admission tickets are $145 for three nights of music and are going like hotcakes!. There is also a $20 parking fee and optional car camping. Photosynthesis encourages people to carpool, leave no trace and respect your fellow festival attendees.

The Stranger Suggests “Bullshit-Free Techno & House”

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014


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,, 9 pm, 21+)

Video from ETG Closing Party!

Sunday, January 12th, 2014

The Shameless Social on November 23rd, 2013, was both the end of an era and a party for the record books. We spent over twelve hours saluting the legendary Electric Tea Garden, the longest lasting underground venue in Seattle dance music history. It was by far the most packed, crazy event in ETG’s almost 20 year history and a great send-up featuring friends old and new. The party started out strong and the dance floor was packed well before 11pm. It ended with bittersweet stories, smiles and tears from everyone in Shameless and ETG’s truly committed staff. Local videographer Cameron Jessup was able to capture some great footage of the peak hours at the event, including MC Anton Bomb performing over Adlib, our surprise impromptu marching band performance, and a glimpse of the mighty Donald Glaude, our surprise headliner for the night. Check it out!

Special thanks to Donald Glaude, Luke Mandala, Bad Pioneer and Nark for joining us on the decks, to ETG’s amazing staff and crew for all the years of hard work and, last but not least, to all the partiers and dancers out there who have supported both ETG and Shameless for so long. We love each and every one of you.

Beats, Booze, Bacon and The Breakfast Club!

Thursday, December 27th, 2012


This is Shameless HQ writing to remind all you Seattle freaks of where you should be spending your New Year’s Day. Whether you rest all of New Year’s Eve, get way too wasted before midnight and pass out in a gutter, party with Innerflight ’til the breaka-breaka dawn or are STILL UP from last weekend’s Shameless “Social” monthly, you would do yourself a favor by stumbling on over to the Electric Tea Garden, getting yourself an ice cold beverage, writing/speaking run-on sentences, and listening to some hot as hell dance music at about 6am until the wee hours of the afternoon on New Year’s Day. That’s right, we’re presenting another edition of our now infamous Breakfast Club party, featuring food, booze and two areas of music insanity from 6am-4pm.

For those of you were there last year, this should be a no-brainer. For those of you who weren’t, you’ll just have to come see if all the rumors are true. Will there be more phenomenal sets by some of Seattle’s favorite dance music legends? Definitely! Will there be incredibly awesome performance art? You betcha!… although this time it will be by Gaydolf and the Golden Showers, as Tons of F***ing Sequins are now signed to a major label and way out of our league… Will a man strangely resembling Zach Galifinakis blow us all away with his unique and only slightly creepy brand of awesomeness? Hopefully! Will Principal Vernon show up? Probably not. Will there be a metric shit-ton of bacon? Probably yes. Will there be at least some bacon? MOST DEFINITELY! Will there be booze-a-plenty? YES! It will be flowing like Manna from heaven (or, at least, from ETG’s exceptionally competent and tolerant bar staff)!!! Will Adlib be playing another exceptionally rad closing set? No… alas, he can’t make it, as he will be on a plane to Hawaii… but that means you guys all just have to get twice as stupid for him!

We guess at some point we should stop writing and share the details. Well, for those of you still around, here they are!
