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!

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:

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.
