GET LEI’D @ Mike B’s Birthday Party JAN 29 in Seattle

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2010 by worldromper

That’s right, I’m promoting one of my best friend’s birthday parties on my blog!

If you live in Seattle, you know who Michael B is, and there’s a damn good chance you’ve partied in his loft. Possibly multiple times, possibly multiple days.

He is more than a man, he is a theory. Mike B is a way of life.

And he’s celebrating his birthday Friday January 29 in Seattle to the tune of hundreds of party people. You are invited.

It will be a wicked ruckus, a collection of “pimp motherfuckers and lovely ladies” at one of the bigger dance clubs in Seattle, Club Heaven, located in Pioneer Square.

Akin to the always popular techno luau, but more like an everything luau, the party christened “GET LEI’D,” will have a Polynesian theme served with a buffet of beats: dirty dirty house music, dubstep, glitch hop, breaks, FLORIDA breaks, TRIBAL breaks, dark techno and a lot more– enough to grill a pig over. OH AND a Sublime cover band– you guys probably don’t know any of the words to their songs.

Two rooms of action will also showcase a Tahitian dance troupe and their hula dancing, not to mention my friends the GoMeansGo go go dancers. Say that five times fast. Then get in the conga line, or do the limbo, but don’t miss the $4 Long Island Iced Teas, Blue Hawaiians, Sea Breezes and Pina Coladas. I can hear the ocean now.

Door discounts for bikini tops and Hawaiian shirts; you can get on the $8 RSVP list here and read all the details on the FB event page here.

LINEUP!!!

  • Flave
  • PrEssHa
  • Jimni
  • SoulKid
  • Jisaan
  • Goner
  • CreepyTom
  • Godfather
  • Maria

AND MY FAVORITE PART: I will be there, my friends. So come to the party, have a Mai Tai, stay high, say hi to me and:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHAEL B!

Slap Yourself and 69 in the Car: My Favorite DJ in the Universe Is

Posted in Artists, LISTEN TO THIS with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 24, 2009 by worldromper

PrEssHa, of course. Who were you expecting, Oakenfuckingfold?

PrEssHa is a machine. He is an archetype. And he will be coming to a dance floor near you, no matter where you live. Because he is that good.

Recently C89.5 The Vortex, Seattle’s premier EDM radio show, broadcasted a special “Iron DJ” set with PrEssHa combining three of his favorite genres, dubstep, midtempo and techno for a three-hour live set.

Download PrEssHa’s new midtempo and techno mixes from the links below; they lead into each other and the commentary you hear throughout is by The Vortex’s Drew Bailey- one of the smart ones in this life.

Click here for SLAP YOURSELF, the midtempo set that pulls out of dubstep and goes into a bouncier, more fun-infused number than some of the more dark and overcast glitch stuff out there right now.

Click here for 69 In The Car, one of the sexiest techno mixes I have heard in a while, with a cameo outtro by the infamous Mike B, calling in from Miami during WMC.

Download and listen to these sets while you are getting ready to go out or prefunking tonight and this weekend. I dare you. I live in a constant state of prefunk and have been dancing around my living room all morning…er…afternoon. 

PrEssHa also plays electro, breaks, drum and bass, hip hop…and I’m sure he could play epic desert trance, candycorn and experimental Christian dubstep if he wanted to. Matt epitomizes the DJ of the future that I go on about, the DJs with a knowledge of many genres which they use to create eclectic and surprising sets. The old-school DJs who are married to one genre and hate on the others are a thing of the past. Just like drum and bass.  

JUST KIDDING JUST KIDDING JUST KIDDING! I love drum and bass and in fact the only show I have ever thrown was a drum and bass show. Please don’t kick my ass, drum and bass heads! I’m just a peace lover with a smart mouth!

I have epic respect for DJs like PrEssHa. Many producers get hella pissed if you call them DJs (or punks)- trust me, I know. But being able to read the crowd and command the energy level on the dance floor while you mix seamlessly is a skill and a proper talent. There is nothing more disappointing than seeing a producer you absolutely love go on live and be a terrible DJ, which happens more often than I would like to admit. Producers and DJs have a symbiotic relationship, and again- all the best producers and DJs know this.

GOD I LOVE THIS PHOTO by Matsuda: Noisemaker is opening Decibel in the Park at 1PM on Saturday afternoon, while most people are still sleeping off the INSANE Deadmau5 show at Neumos the night before. Not Mike B, who is straight reppin’ the 206, holding down the dance floor as per usual, mau5 ears intact. He came to get down.
