Due to popular demand I am writing up my showcase suggestions for the 2009 Decibel Festival which begins TOMORROW!

I have been pimping for this festival for a while; I believe strongly in the smart curation of the party. These lineups are not just thrown together, but rather placed with precision into intelligent mixes of eclectic talent. In case you haven’t figured it out by now, I write for Decibel, and am honored to be a part of Seattle’s EDM festival.

I have bolded my top pick for each day, and added links in orange to the showcase descriptions that I wrote up.

Happy Decibel everybody!

Ctrl_Alt_Dlt: Seattle Techno *NEW MIX*

Posted in Artists, LISTEN TO THIS with tags , , , , , , on July 6, 2009 by worldromper

I LOVE techno, just so you know. I use the word ‘love’ loosely and for many things like blimps, porch swings and melted cheese but with techno, it is more like an addiction. A delicious, seductive addiction from which I have no desire to unchain myself from. Ever.

Ctrl_Alt_Dlt is my favorite techno DJ in Seattle and plays the smoothest minimal techno sets ever, animals with glowing eyes that creep up behind you in the night and bite your sweaty neck- and you LOVE it.

Chris handed me this mix, which was simply labeled “Seattle Techno” at the Detroit Electronic Music Festival. It quickly became the soundtrack of my weekend, providing bumping accompaniment in the rental car as I bounced from party to club to bar to hotel room in the realm of the afterhour.
