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: dB in the Park- DON’T FEED THE ANIMALS!

Posted in Events, Festivals, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 27, 2009 by worldromper

dB in the parkdB in the Park was one of the most talked-about showcases of last year’s festival, and this time we bring you another onslaught of feral beats and good times on the grass with a collection of wild animal DJs who have busted out of their cages of style, delivering sets that have no genre borders and no limits- only a little slobber around the edges.

Opening the daylight event is local legend Eddie, beloved by dance floors citywide for his ferocious enthusiasm and unmatched dynamism. Up next is Decibel favorite Skip!KiloWatts whose bass-heavy approach ranges from techno to broken beats to IDM, all supported by intelligent structures and a musical fluidity that makes humans move uncontrollably. The live electronic crew Sub Swara experiments with dub and brings it to life lightning-like, shaking under the bass weight and melting multiple genres together in a heady stew, all set off by the energetic style and organic voice of MC Juakali. Finally, from the world-renowned club night Low End Theory comes resident Gaslamp Killer, who has chewed through the bars and escaped LA to test your courage with his raw turntable skills, mad animal stage presence, and a menacing psy-funk freak-out style of demonic sludge spazz. Is that blood on his hands?

dB in the Park 2008Free and all-ages, dB in the Park promises to once again unite a wide and colorful array of music lovers who come for the eclectic mish-mash of wild world electronica, from little girls with big purple hoola hoops and old-man ravers in orange wigs to neo-hippies dressed in feathers, leather, and butterfly wings. Attention all freakazoids and robots: please report to the dance floor.

dB in the Park takes place Sunday, September 27 starting at noon in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill. Click here for ticket sales and more information.
