Substation
645 NW 45th St
Seattle, WA  98107

Transit presents... House Without Lights. A Halloween celebration of Deep House in a Dark Room. Dawn your costume and shed the light at Substation on Saturday, October 27, for just $7 all night at the door.

Earlier in the day at Substation, Modular nights will have an electronic hardware//modular & synths showcase, and bridging this event into Transit, starting at 8pm, the talented chill/dream/synthwave PNW-based duo Static Shore will be doing a special live performance, bringing up the dance vibes. Then the well-seasoned DJs Tony H, Derrick Deep, Jaderade, Frank James, and Dreloz will be mixing live groovy house music sets.

Shred the dancefloor, enjoy spooktacular drinks from the bar, gaze upon clips from your favorite Halloween films, get your Halloween makeup done (there will be pro special fx makeup artists) have your group photos taken by pro photographers, and entertain yourself with the stylings of talented local dancers (Transit features the Chinatown Afterhours dance crew). Transit:: House Without Lights on Saturday, 10/27 will be a memorable event!

BIOs >>>>>>>

Static Shore creates a combination of beats with depth, sunshine, rain, the ocean with all things synth and acoustic related. Shannon Alexander (Vocals, Synths), Eric Smith (Synths, Beats), blend together ideas, dreams, thoughts and positive vibes through their music. The collaborative efforts of working together, have provided the listener with a lush synthesis of vocals, layers and beats.
Originally from Colorado, the duo relocated to the Pacific NorthWest in 2012, while discovering and taking in the new landscapes. The music is an open door illusion inspired by the area’s rich ocean coastline, deep forest pines, gentle many rains, vibrant technology, rugged Cascades, savory coffee and an expansive, welcoming international community.

Although working for a decade on previous projects together, Static Shore released it’s debut EP “Life and Love in the Hologram” in 2016 featuring the tracks “Replay”, “Low Valley Low” and “Covered Up”. Followed in 2017, “Tides” EP provides tracks “Friend” and “Anchor Sail”. Most currently, the duo is in the midst of enjoying it’s latest single “Sun In My Wake”, a gentle rhythmic story describing how one’s Summer soul can change in the days ahead. This single is a prelude from July 2018’s EP “Embody” which will feature “Satellite Beams” and “In The Dust”.

BogTroTTeR - (Minneapolis)

The Minneapolis native BogTroTTeR has set roots in Denver and has been melting crowds throughout United States, Australia, and Canada since 2009. Through complex percussions and growling rhythms, BogTroTTeR’s diverse collage of original compositions challenges the scope of modern day psychedelic bass music. His sound pushes the limits through his own unique mixture of glitch-hop, breakbeats, and psy-bass with a dark, swampy twist. Murky bass lines and terrestrial synthesizers are just a few things contributing to the lustrous sound field amalgamated by BogTroTTeR.

He has quickly become a favorite at festivals such as Infrasound, Lucidity and last years’ Tipper and Friends’ Full Moon Gathering; inspiring a myriad of listeners to tread deep into his sound field, united by lustrous melodies.

BogTroTTeR has six releases creating complex terrestrial soundscapes on legendary Shanti Planti, Merkaba, and Addictech Records.

“Bogtrotter’s sound is a complex sculpture of professional disorientation, flooding your eardrums with endless undulating vocal synths that span a range of textures from warm to scratchy to buzzy to melty to chirpy in an intentional cacophony of bubbling audio characters” - LostinSound

NorthStar - Seattle, WA

Rescued from a basket made of solid gold reeds set adrift in the Pacific ocean, NORTHSTAR, was raised in the greater Seattle area. Once he began making music his true intergalactic biological nature was revealed; his deep bass sounds could only be inspired by astral intellect. NORTHSTAR’s deconstructed geometric melodies are woven over psychedelic minimalist basslines; prepare your cosmonaut suit and get ready for an existential deep bass exploration.

Pilz Beats -Seattle, Wa

Pilz creates samples from the world around him, melding the serene expressions of cities, spirited rainforests and ethereal synth work into soundscapes that delve the listener into a blissed-out world of nostalgia and groove filled psychedelia. Funky horn riffs, experimental jazz-keys and dimension ripping bass-lines are all tested components of Pilz’s productions - an alchemical synthesis of soul into song.

The High Council And The Jauntee at Substation

Saturday November 10th - 8:00pm - Sunday November 11th - 1:00am

The High Council And The Jauntee at Substation

Substation
645 NW 45th St
Seattle, WA  98107

Averaging over one hundred shows a year — The Jauntee has built a foundation of dedicated fans across the country. On November 10th, 2018 they will be coming to Seattle for a special, one night, co-headlining performance with Northwest favorite, The High Council, at Substation. Substation is Seattle’s finest underground music venue located at 645 NW 45th Street in Ballard.

After spending 8 years rooted in New England and touring nationally, The Jauntee now reside in Colorado but consider the stage their truest home. They’ve received national recognition at several festivals (ie. Peach Fest, Catskill Chill) and have traveled the circuit of staple nationwide clubs and theaters (ie. Georgia Theatre, Bluebird Theatre, Fox Theatre, Brooklyn Bowl, Paradise Rock Club).

A focus on live improvisation, set-list variety, and exploration gives The Jauntee a musical edge in the live setting. As Berklee College of Music alumni, their technical prowl, willingness to explore genres, abandon all song structure, and dive into ‘the weird’ sets them apart from your average upcoming Jam Band. The Jauntee aims to push the boundaries of improvisation, embrace the moment and engage the audience. It’s music you get lost inside of – Music that pulls you in like a violent, beautiful cyclone of sound.

Drawing influence from a wide variety of acts, The Jauntee’s improvisational landscape spans multiple genres, from rock and jazz all the way to bluegrass, psychedelic, and ambient. Their willingness to explore genres, abandon all song structure, and dive into ‘the weird’ sets them apart from the average upcoming jam band. They aim to push the boundaries of improvisation, embrace the moment and engage the audience. With a quickly growing loyal fanbase, an ever-expanding song catalog and an inclination for open ended improvisation, The Jauntee promises to deliver a unique experience.

You can learn more about The Jauntee at: www.thejauntee.com/

Co-headlining will be regional favorite, The High Council. From the heart of the Evergreen State, The High Council explores the boundaries of melody and groove. With a blend of transcendent improvisation and earthy rock sensibilities, THC draws on elements of jazz, reggae, rock and psychedelia. The High Council members are lead guitarist Zeke Wakefield, rhythm guitarist Ryan Phillapart, bass guitarist Reign King, keyboardist Zack Olson, drummer Davy Nefos and percussionist Jeff Pang.

You can learn more about them at: www.facebook.com/thehighcouncilband/

Don't miss out on this opportunity to journey through the boundaries of music and mind with these three great acts!

Presale tickets are only $10, available through Brown Paper Tickets.

DJ Aphrodite has been a mainstay of the Worldwide Rave scene since the early ninties. For each country around the world with a Drum & Bass scenes, DJ Aphrodite has produced anthems. ‘Ganja Man’, ‘King Of The Beats’, ‘Style From The Darkside’, ‘All Over Me’, ‘Summer Breeze’, ‘Dub Moods’ and ‘Stalker’ from the infamous record shop scene in movie ‘Human Traffic’, ‘ Mash Up You Know’, ‘Booyaa’ and ‘We Enter’, to name just a few solo compositions have all graced Junglist and DnB playlists everywhere.

Starting with Urban Shakedown and together producing the huge rave anthem ‘Some Justice’ Aphrodite became a prolific producer being an integral part of creating a string of Jungle and Drum & Bass Classics of which more than a dozen had the UK and European mainstream chart success. Throughout the millennium Aphrodite’s Artist and DJ Mix albums notched up half a million sales worldwide and his popularity as one of the world’s Drum & Bass icons was forged with consistent performances and now delivering multiple 4-deck mixing to all crowds be them 30,000 or 300 strong. Aphrodite’s travels as one of the world’s favorite Jungle and DNB artists, playing a mix of exclusives, special versions, new releases, DJ promos and self-indulgent classics has seen him perform all over the United Kingdom, Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa and Australasia.

From the mid-nineties, Aphrodite’s use of stripped-back, high-energy bass and beats, well-chosen hip-hop and reggae samples in all the productions he’s part of has made him one of the founding fathers of jump-up Drum & Bass. Aphrodite Recordings and his partnered labels Urban Shakedown and Urban Takeover alongside his production partner, DJ legend Micky Finn, have helped plant the roots of a style which still dominates the landscape of Drum & Bass around the world. Aphrodite’s irresistible blend of rolling beats and heavy danceable baselines, have made him a remixer of choice for artists of all stature and genres. NWA, A Tribe Called Quest, Beverley Knight, Freestylers, Afrika Bambaataa, Nine Inch Nails, East 17, Simon Bassline, Alibi, Smoke City, Moloko, Biga Ranx, Meredith Brooks, Mary J Blige, Jem, NG3, Vangelis, Congo Natty, Holly Valance have all benefited from a tear-out Aphrodite remixes.

Seattle PsyOps: Perfect Stranger!

Saturday December 8th - 9:00pm - Sunday December 9th - 4:00am

Seattle PsyOps: Perfect Stranger!

Substation

A generic label would not do justice to the depth of Perfect Strangers' heartfelt music. In his creation you’ll find tracks inspired by the bliss of sunbeams, by an ironic yet candid take on the simple pleasures of life, and by the darker side of the self.

His demanding standards have led him to appropriate today’s trends, undoubtedly Techno, which he also DJ’s with a rare understanding and acute intelligence. His new hybrid sound that incorporates Progressive Psy-Trance embedded in dirty Techno-ish grooves and breakdowns, is as modern as it gets and yet helps maintain the old school spirit that is missed so much nowadays. That is why it's the ultimate brain candy out there at the moment.

The Crystal Method at Substation

Presents:

The Crystal Method
The Trip Home (New Album)

For more than two decades, The Crystal Method has remained at the forefront of the worldwide dance music industry as pioneers of the big beat genre, innovators of the ‘90s electronica movement and current-day global ambassadors of the American electronic sound. Originally formed as a duo, alongside now-retired founding member Ken Jordan, The Crystal Method today lives and breathes as a solo act, with co-founder and originator Scott Kirkland at the helm. And with the artistic reboot comes the next chapter in The Crystal Method timeline:

The Trip Home, out September 14 on the band’s own Tiny E Records. As the sixth full-length The Crystal Method album and Kirkland’s first as a new found solo act, The Trip Home serves as the creative rebirth of the brand. An artistic manifesto and love letter to the electronic world, The Trip Home welcomes Kirkland at the driver’s seat with full control of the reins. The Trip Home is co-produced with veteran producer/remixer/composer Glen Nicholls,who has worked with legendary artists like The Prodigy, Nine Inch Nails, Sia and UNKLE, among many others, in addition to scoring several of his own feature films. For the new album, Kirkland dove deep into the decades-spanning discography of The Crystal Method. The result is a sound that revisits the roots of the classic Crystal Method aesthetic, while pushing its possibilities into the future. Equal parts throwback and dynamic futurism, The Trip Home expands Kirkland’s unrestrained curiosity into new realms and new sounds. To perfect this fine balance, Kirkland took a back-to-basics approach, which saw him firing up his arsenal of analog synths and reconnecting with his collection of vintage gear. The lead single “Holy Arp” captures this calculated formula perfectly: A brooding intro of darkly tinged bleeps and bloops slowly builds the song’s tension before it pours into a bed of chunky synths, distorted reverb and alien sounds. Its minimal, vocal-less melody allows space for the synths to expand and reach a high peak before disintegrating into the ether. It was “Holy Arp” that gave Kirkland the first flashes of the cohesive sound that would shape The Trip Home “As soon as I got that track going, I knew I had found the direction for the new album,”

Kirkland says. “It reverberates with the sound of Crystal Method classics like ‘Name of the Game’ and has some of the gnarliness of ‘Vapor Trail.’ It’s an angry, ballsy, bombastic trip down the inner workings of the vintage ARP 2600 synth.” Elsewhere, the emotional ballad “Ghost in the City”—co-produced with electronic artist/producer Le Castle Vania—is a narrative-driven electronic dream that floats through dark clouds and shredding guitars, while singer-songwriter Amy Kirkpatrick delivers an angelic and touching vocal performance. “The Raze,” also produced alongside Le Castle Vania, is a mind trip through thick and heavy synths that unfurls with cinematic, dark drama. “It was great to have the opportunity to collaborate with Dylan (Le Castle Vania) again on two tracks from the new album,” Kirkland says.

“There’s a Difference,” a reimagining of the track “Difference” off The Crystal Method’s 2014 self-titled album, is a full-on alt rock hybrid that mixes melodic electronics, pulsing bass via Tony Buchen (The Griswolds, Boyzone), punching live drums from Grammy winner Matt Chamberlain (Pearl Jam, The Wallflowers, Fiona Apple) and riveting vocals from singer Franky Perez (Apocalyptica, Slash). “Distance” is both cinematic and theatrical as it reaches toward progressive crossover territory in its delivery of chainsaw guitars, electronic atmospherics and operatic vocals care of Delila Paz and Gavin McDevitt of Teflon Sega. Collectively, The Trip Home pieces together the fundamentals of The Crystal Method’s storied past while adding new, unexplored elements for a cohesive, unique sonic experience that’s as diverse in sound and style as it is anthemic and driving. “I wanted to create a concept album of sorts,” Kirkland says, “a project that speaks to what’s going on in my life right now and a vision that also brings The Crystal Method sound forward and shapes it in a new way. I’ve been enjoying the idea of making an album like our debut album Vegas, where every song is different. Every song ha a different BPM, every song has different emotions, every song has different elements.” The Trip Home also serves a Kirkland’s message and reaction to the grandiose excess of today’s EDM scene. Where the genre constantly offers tired and recycled noise, Kirkland answers with an album built on organic sounds, a wide emotional range and, ultimately, real music. Forged from analog synths, recorded through vintage Moog and Electro-Harmonix pedals and mixed through Sound City’s Never console—not the same one used on Nevermind; Dave Grohl has that one—The Trip Home is a warm embrace of organic electronic music. The natural noise of analog gear is part of the sound. “I’m always looking for just the right amount of wrong,” Kirkland says.“I’m really proud of all the collaborations and incredibly talented artists who contributed to The Trip Home.

Are you as excited as we are for this legend!?

With such a world legend coming to town, we had to recruit Seattle's Finest Local Legends to help hold down that vibe.

Kadeejah Streets-

Following his tour of duty in Vietnam in the late 60's, Streets, disillusioned and alone, his Technicolor American dream shattered, drifted from city to city, making and breaking friendships in days over the most trivial matters such as, "Who the f$#@ got into my Choco Crunch!?" Eventually he made for the NYC where he found himself at home among the gay, black and Latino communities. It was here that he first encountered what was later to be popularly defined as 'disco.'
"I'll never forget it," he once said. "Had I not accepted my friend's invitation to check out this joint called the 'Paradise Garage,' my life wouldn't have been the same, man. That first night I felt like I was rising to a higher state of consciousness. We were all one." Mr. Streets has kept on rising ever since.
