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!

Decibel Festival Showcase Spotlight: Starborne Dirty Velvet Afterhours

Posted in Events, Festivals, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 31, 2009 by worldromper

If you like your afterhours dark, deep and dirty – slip on over to the Little Red Studio on Saturday night to wallow in beats so filthy they will stick to your skin for days, no matter how hard you scrub. Soap and water are no match for two rooms of talent, guaranteed to completely contaminate your Decibel Festival experience with a bass crunk-dunk of some of the freshest and finest sounds from the electronic arts underground.

Ana Sia

Ana Sia

The Main Room welcomes 3WS, the combination of San Francisco’s Ana Sia and Danny Corn, whose rough rumblings satisfy the body and the brain to simultaneously activate your limbs and uplift your mind. Mike Slott’s hip hop-influenced imagination and innovative future-funk wraps you in a dirty blanket of experimental movement, while Eprom kicks you in the face with fatty rawness – his slamming and crunchy twist on West Coast Sound is always a party favorite. Mimosa slides in next with sexy basslines and a thick psychedelic density, rolling deep like purple with a gang of dub-infused grooves.

Take

Take

The sounds will be smokin’ heavy in the lounge next door, where LA’s Take keeps the beats on a West Coast lean with his laid-back, acousmatic blend of hypnotic hip hop, otherworldly melodies, and space dust. Kotchy creates top-shelf pop reworkings with toes dipped in electro and hip hop; using live instruments he delivers sets as unpredictable as they are unique. Professor Steve Nalepa teaches us the true depth of dub and the grime of glitch from the beat blackboard, and J Roby of Portland’s Abstract Earth Project experiments with sounds that sooth you right onto the dance floor.

Come out and cloak yourself in delicious Dirty Velvet and realize how much fun getting filthy can be.

Starborne Dirty Velvet Afterhours takes place Saturday, September 26 at Little Red Studio. Click here to buy tickets and for more information about the 2009 Decibel Festival.

Nalepa: Flatlands *NEW MUSIC*

Posted in Artists, LISTEN TO THIS, Music News with tags , , , , , , , on March 20, 2009 by worldromper

Straight outta LA comes this tasty new album, Flatlands, from Steve Nalepa who always manages to create beats fat with bass but still light on their feet, all drenched in an otherworldly ethos that transports your brainspace straight to another place, a land where music is god and the beat is king. Kind of like my apartment.

This music makes me want to retreat into the daydream world that is Planet Shilo and not come back, to lie in satin sheets all day until sunset rouses me to a night full of mischief, to find a hidden beach and run naked into the crashing waves and revert to my mermaid self. It’s that good. 

Flatlands: Remixes features the work of a few friends including Nosaj Thing, the Glitch Mob, Deru, [a]pendics.shuffle, Bluetech and Heyoka, just to namedrop a few.

Listen to sneak peaks and buy Flatlands and Flatlands: Remixes here.
