Thanks to everyone that came out to our 8th Annual ‘My Bloody Valentine is Shameless’ party last weekend. We had a blast and it looked like many of you did too! Chris Van Wick was kind enough to take some pictures during the event. Click here to view them all.

Also, Megan Dapper will be putting together a short video documentary soon. In the meantime, here are a few clips that Verse took with his phone. Great shots of the two giant walls of visuals! Check them out here.

A lot of time and energy went into this party and in turn there are many people to thank. First off, a huge thanks to Billy and the FRED Wildlife Refuge for taking a risk on us. It was the first event of it’s kind there and we were honored to be a part of it. Second, lots of love to all of our DJs and performers. Everyone brought their A game!

Shameless is proud to present the


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, 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.

The Birthday Party where Valentine’s Day meets Halloween

Have we really been at this for 7 years?! Hard to believe that an extra-curricular activity started back in 2003 has become a fully functioned production/promotion/performance collective with an eye for emerging electronic music and arts. This year’s celebration features DRUMCELL (LA), J.PHLIP (SF), 214 (SEA) and sets by all of the Shameless residents, RECESS (SEA), MENAMI (SEA), JEN WOOLFE (SF), ROBB GREEN (SF), LEVI CLARK (SEA), ADLIB (SEA) and Shameless’ own MC ANTON BOMB (SEA). Heart-shaped pinata smashing at midnight, dress to express!

In the spirit of Shameless’ mantra (that is, “keeping it weird”), Joe B and Miles bring it beautifully over the top with this promo video.

Disko Casse showcase @ Decibel Festival featured artist: BRODINSKI

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009


One question I kept asking myself as I listened to Brodinski’s cosmically funky tracks and transcendental DJ mixes: is he really from this world?!

In just two short years, Brodinski has risen to explosive heights so quickly and emphatically. The high quality of his productions and the intensity of his DJ sets have rocked audiences and won universal respect among peers and DJs around the world.

Shameless is very proud to help bring Brodinski to Seattle this Saturday as headliner of our Disko Casse showcase at Chop Suey, as part of the 2009 Decibel Festival in Seattle.

While primarily affiliated with the mighty Boyz Noize and Turbo Recordings, Brodinski has released tracks on other venerable labels such as Fool’s Gold, Kitsune, and Ed Banger since 2007. His debut track Bad Runner was a sensation on many respected music blogs in late 2007, which began the proverbial ball rolling of support from world-renowned DJs and artists such as Soulwax, Switch, and Erol Alkan. Brodinski has also remixed tracks from Bonde de Role, Klaxons, and Adam Sky.

Brodinski’s original productions lean forward to the future without sacrificing visceral, sensual rhythm patterns familiar to all. This approach is best demonstrated in his collaboration with Noob on the recently released track on Turbo Recordings: “Peanuts Club”. Here, the track begins with a driving, bass drum-heavy tribal beat generously drenched in dark yet sexy techno influences. Syncopated basslines, bells, exhaust leaks, and otherworldly industrial loops create an irresistible environment where momentum naturally ebbs and flows – and always satisfies.

Brodinski – Peanuts Club (Original Mix) – zShare

He also demonstrates a flair for dramatic tension on last year’s epic track “Oblivion,” which out of the gate thumps you over with in-your-face snares and kick drums – and eerie, extraterrestrial sounds from every direction. Wear headphones and turn up the bass during a listen of “Oblivion” and by the end of the track, you’ll be completely (and happily) convinced that you’ve had some kind of close encounter.

Both tracks are available for high-quality purchase via Beatport – get them immediately.

Brodinski’s DJ skills are equally impressive, as his track selections in the mix reflect the balance he achieves in his production between earthly rhythmic delights and what the future might have in store.

9. Roman IV – As Time Goes Bye Bye

The dude’s got tons o’ energy, too! Here are a couple examples:

Needless to say, expect more of the same at Disko Casse this Saturday at Chop Suey!

Bug in the Bassbin
Time to Go Balls Out

by Donte Parks

With all of the hassle from The Man, it’s getting increasingly harder to have fun on the Hill. But until we can elect a more nightlife-supportive administration, we’re forced to work around the limitations it presents. Shameless has found a solution that requires neither trekking across the city nor partying in some shady space. Instead, Shameless’s newest monthly venture (with the Naha Army) aspires to be a balls-out party, appropriately titled Balls Out, and it’s found the right venue for that to occur without any hassles.

“It feels like we’re in the movie Footloose,” says Shameless’s DJ Recess about the current nightlife environment, which has recently seen both Neumo’s and Chop Suey under constant scrutiny from law enforcement and liquor control. Shameless’s Menami adds, “No one wants to come to a party with cops outside. We’re not the only promoters that have had to deal with the draconian noise situation.”

To combat that concern, Shameless is throwing Balls Out at Re-bar. Host to Shameless’s My Bloody Valentine parties, Re-bar has remained off law enforcement’s radar, due in large part to its relatively isolated location. “Re-bar’s always been a red-headed stepchild [of a club], but now we can use that to our advantage,” says Menami.

Shameless is bringing in more than just a truckload of extra sound for the night. Fourthcity’s Kinoko will be curating live art performances for the event, and there’s going to be a “hipster dunk tank.” Don’t worry, it’s all in good fun. “It’s not about making fun of hipsters; it’s about making fun of ourselves. What does ‘hipster’ even mean these days?” says Recess. For the inauguration of the night, ex-hardcore DJ AC Slater is flying in; he’s a rave favorite who’s successfully transitioned to more contemporary bassline and electro, a favorite of the Palms Out Sounds blog.

Shameless promoters are optimistic that they’ll be able to keep having events on the Hill, like Broken Disco, the collaborative monthly they helped throw at the troubled Chop Suey. “We really want to come back strong with Broken Disco, but in the meantime, we’re going to see what we can get away with at Balls Out.”…d=636599&ms

BALLS OUT! 08-08-08 @ Rebar

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

Shameless is returning to the Rebar! It’s been a few years, but we’ve decided to head back to one of our favorite Seattle clubs for a new monthly called Balls Out. One of our favorite producer/DJs will be joining us from NYC to throw down along with local favorites Kadeejah Streets & Schlage. We’re teaming up with NAHA Army so expect the unexpected with residents Recess & Naha. Reportedly Levi Clark is putting together a ‘dunk the hipster tank’ and we’ll have Kinoko & Eli Heuer on hand doing live art. Get hyped and come back home to the Rebar in August. We’ll even bring in some extra sound to bump the basslines.
