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!

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.

Jimmy Edgar

On Saturday February 26th we welcome back The Shameless Social to the Electric Tea Garden (ETG). This fun filled monthly event returns after a brief intro last year at ETG and will be kicked off with a highly anticipated live appearance by !K7/Warp artist Jimmy Edgar. Come early and connect with your Shameless friends and then dance the night away at one of Capitol Hills most intimate underground venues.

Jimmy Edgar in The Stranger

Listen to Hot, Raw, Sex (!K7)

Lover. Fighter. Prophet. Freak magnet. Time-traveler. Musician, photographer and designer Jimmy Edgar is a wayward star-child streaking across the cosmic dance-floor. Endowed with a supernatural feel for futuristic funk, the Detroit native has been bleeping and grinding about the Milky Way since he was a teenage humanoid. While his peers were worrying about their grades and popularity, Edgar was spinning alongside his hometown’s DJ heroes and programming intricate beats that were unquestionably interplanetary communication disguised as dance music. In 2001 at the tender of 18, his hyper-sexed microchip stylings caught the ear of Warp, where he cranked out his brand of amped-up laptop funk for the next eight years, culminating in the full-length classic “Color Strip”. Now 26, Edgar is shaking things up at German beat boutique !K7. “When I was 18 and signed with Warp, my next goal was !K7 for some reason. I believe I attracted !K7 to me through the ‘Law of Attraction’. I think this is going to be an incredible journey.” The new album “XXX” is out at the end of July and its New Jack Swing winks as much at Minneapolis, Compton and Paris as it does Detroit or Berlin. On new turf, Edgar’s sonic prowess takes on a leaner, more radio-ready shine. “Function of Your Love” zips and struts about like something Andre Cymone might have cooked up for Jody Watley in their chart-topping heyday. On “Hot, Raw, Sex” Edgar lets the synth stabs and hand claps fly fast and loose. “In My Color” has the percolating, crystalline bounce of I:Cube’s late 90′s French Touch. “Midnite Fone Call” is the kind of lush “Quiet Storm” that Alex Gopher might kill for. “Push”, with its staccato rhythm and come-hither incantations would make Timbaland blush. The instrumental interlude “One Twenty Detail”, runs Kraftwerk through a low-rider worthy break-beat filter and “Vibration” sounds like pornographic Morse Code tapped out by Egyptian Lover. While the album is largely a one-man show, “XXX” is not without accomplices. A Latvian girl named Anet sings on “Physical Motion” and a rising new R&B singer from NYC signed to XL recordings, Azealia, ad libs on the same track. “Whenever I have worked with women and art, they have this way of putting balance into everything.” The album’s sophistication should come as no surprise, considering the mix of elements that factored in its creation. “Celibacy. Love and Loss. A myriad of intense relationships. Home studio on mostly analog equipment, finished digitally. Some recorded on tape. Some recorded frustrated, sick, broke, pissed off, in love.” Referring to other influences, Edgar adds, “I learned piano from black dudes at the Baptist church in Detroit. They taught me to extend my fingers and play from the heart.” As for Kraftwerk, the Belleville Three and the rest of the early electronic pioneers he says, “Those guys were tryin to make Stevie Wonder more danceable. They were tryin to make Prince with that equipment. That is what I do essentially.” What Edgar does essentially and very well is make your body move. Most of the time he does it alone, but there has been no shortage of willing partners. In addition to an array of remixes for everyone from pop acts like Will Smith and Scott Hardkiss to indie darlings like emo-electro duo Purple Crush and new wave soul man Theophilus London – including 2009′s cruising-with-the-top-down jams “Blindfolded” and “Higher” – he famously turned Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” inside out into a blistering workout from beyond. Deeply inspired by Jacko and incapable of standing still for very long himself, the ever-restless Edgar is eager to take his musical peep show on the road this summer. As if his beats and dancing weren’t enough, just to make his seductive intent perfectly clear, Edgar adds “I designed 12 florescent neon tubes to make an “XXX” on stage.” Ultimately, the best thing about Jimmy Edgar’s intergalactic funk is that for all its mystical kink, it’s solidly the kind of music you could easily imagine today’s pop tarts making. If Beyonce, Lady Gaga or Fergie had any sense, their million dollar booties would have Jimmy Edgar on speed dial already.

8TH ANNUAL MY BLOODY VALENTINE IS SHAMELESS!

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Shameless is proud to present the

8TH ANNUAL MY BLOODY VALENTINE IS SHAMELESS!

Heartbreaker’s Hall
Santiago & Bushido (PottyMouth, Cajual Records -CHI)

Amidst the countless DJ’s and producers working in the burgeoning Chicago house scene, Santiago and Bushido stand apart from the rest with their unique blend of tech-tinged house beats and killer remixes that are becoming quite the sought-after commodity. Since teaming up as a production duo in 2003, Chris Santiago and Tim Bush have dropped numerous EP’s and remixes on some of the most well respected labels around including Potty Mouth, Om, Ultra, and have generated a significant following in the process. Their unique sound and flawless DJ sets have helped to establish Santiago & Bushido as one of the premier acts in dance music today.
Their track ‘Head Trick’ was one of the true dance anthems of 2008, a major crossover success receiving play and charting from many of the globe’s top DJ’s such as Moby, DJ Tiesto, Switch, Armin Van Buren, and Diplo. Head Trick was the 1 most downloaded song in January 2008, and the 8 most downloaded of the entire year on Beatport.com, the world’s top online site for electronic music. Santiago & Bushido followed the success of Head Trick with a number of critically acclaimed releases and remixes including a massive remix of Kaskade’s Billboard 1 hit single Move For Me, a reworking of Larry Tee’s Louis Vuitton, and their original single Can’t Be Wrong which has been licensed to numerous complications such as Ministry of Sound. In addition to belting out club tracks Santiago and Bushido have worked with Om recording artist Colette on her artist album “Push” for which they wrote and produced multiple songs including the album’s single, “If,” which was licensed for an episode of Real World for “MTV” and can also be purchased as a ring tone from Verizon.


Having been intimately involved with music his entire, life Bushido picked up his first pair of turntables and sampler on his 16th birthday and immediately went to work mixing, sampling, and cutting up any piece of vinyl he could get his hands on. His carefully crafted DJ sets caught the ears of some of Chicago’s nightlife elite and he soon found himself playing all over the city. Tim spent his days working at Chicago Recording Company, sharing the same recording space with the likes of R.Kelly and Smashing Pumpkins among others. By working alongside some of Chicago’s most well respected engineers at CRC, Bushido honed his engineering and production prowess until opportunity knocked.

While Bushido was mastering his craft, Santiago was working his way up the Chicago’s nightlife hierarchy. Within one year of playing live gigs, he secured a Friday night residency at Zentra Nightclub’s House Arrest, and within a year he would be playing to Chicago’s most musically educated and up-for-it partiers as an exclusive resident at “World’s Best Dance Club”, Smartbar, joining the halls of dance icons that have enjoyed similar slots there (including other current residents Kaskade and Justin Long).

As DJ’s, Santiago & Bushido draw influence from their Chicago house background and apply harder and heavier elements to their sound. Santiago & Bushido are regularly headlining and appearing at some of the best parties in the US and beyond including Avalon in LA, Decibel Festival in Seattle, and Bed in Miami. Recent shows have them playing along side some of the hottest talent around today such as Deadmau5, Crookers, and Kaskade. Their 2009 dates include a multi-city tour in Australia, multiple trips to Europe, and regular gigs in North America.

Shameless Bio :: Levi Clark

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

Levi Clark

 

BIO

Despite wet weather the search continues for a man who went missing nearly two weeks ago.  According to officials Levi Clark was last seen with his beloved Jack Russell Terrier while looking for aluminum cans.  “He was an integral part of Shameless Productions and has been missed,” said a representative for the Seattle based music collective. Levi Clark began playing instruments at the age of five and has been an active member of the electronic music community since the turn of the millennium.  His performances along side James Holden, Para One, DJ Keoki and Brodinski are a few of the more shocking experiences that people have seen in years.  “Even while playing eclectic tracks behind the decks he’s either dancing his pants off or actually taking his pants off,” said a fan who asked to remain anonymous.

Everything from sonar equipment to cadaver dogs and bloodhounds have been used so far in the search for Levi Clark.  Reportedly a studded belt and a single black sock were found near one of his frequented venues.  Authorities say that they will wait until next Wednesday before exhausting all resources and calling off the search indefinitely.
