Tara Brooks (Desert Hearts, Subtract Music)
There is a line where the dark fuses with the light, the surreal with the sublime, the graceful with the powerful; it is within this line that Tara Brooks has carved out her truly distinct sound. Whether playing at an intimate club, a packed festival or a magical sunrise deep in the Burning Man Playa, Tara's music envelopes the crowd, stirring them with deep grooves, hypnotic rhythms and haunting melodies. Behind the decks, her passion and love for music is contagious-- Savoring every moment her smile beams out to a sea of faces who are right there with her, dancing away and smiling right back.
Growing up in a house where the warm melodies of old records constantly filled the air, the Southern California-born Tara began absorbing music at a very early age. She grew up having a love and appreciation for everything from classical to classic rock, from hip-hop to punk and everything in between. But it was within the Los Angeles underground dance scene where Tara ultimately found her calling.
Struck by the power of the music and the loving vibe of the scene, Tara immediately knew she had to be a part of it. Learning on vinyl, Tara put her first needle on a record in 2007 and hasn't looked back since. With her unique sound, loving energy and fierce work ethic leading the charge, Tara has played some of the most respected venues both domestic and abroad including The BPM Festival, WMC Space, Lightning in a Bottle, Sound (Los Angeles), PublicWorks (SF) Verboten (New York) and of course a little place she calls Home, Burning Man.
When she's not touring, you can find Tara locked in the studio. Rather then focusing on genre or style, Tara is sonically inspired by personal experience and connection with her environment. Always striving to translate a specific feeling or moment, Tara creates a sound that is all her own: Compelling, sophisticated, haunting and healing, piercing your heart and invigorating your soul.
Whether it's through production or playing, Tara's continued passion for sharing her music knows no bounds. From being Desert Hearts and Subtract Music's newest resident to kicking of the new year with Louie Fresco's MEXA Records BPM party and Costa Rica's Envision Festival along with several productions and remixes being set for release the future is filled with light for Tara Brooks as she continues to do what she loves her way and always from the heart.
GriffinGrrl (Uniting Souls)
GriffinGrrl is the new DJ persona of Emily Griffin, intent on amplifying the fierce beauty of this moment and aligning forces with the Seattle community who inspired her through major recent life shifts. After a long hiatus from behind the decks, beloved artist friends called her back to step up and let it flow. While she's not content to rest on her past accomplishments, with her 20+ years of experience as a catalyst and champion of dance music culture, she’s earned her veteran status. Baptized by blacklight in the early 90s Los Angeles rave scene, she then came up as Ms.E - a radio host, club promoter and DJ at the epicenter of San Francisco’s jungle/drum & bass movement. Her passion for positive, music-driven media fueled her collaborative involvement in all aspects of the business - from XLR8R Magazine to Xbox Entertainment, vinyl and digital record labels, film & TV sync licensing and countless events Stateside and beyond. Whether she’s busting out the chunky tech house vibes, bassy beats or that lush "mellow fiyah” that will melt your heart, you’ll feel Emily’s optimism radiating in her sets. She’s here to make you stand tall and move forward. Bless!

Kole Galbraith - Drone & noise artist Kole Galbraith approaches the electric bass with both conventional and unconventional manners to explore both the delicacy and gutteral cathartic possibilities achievable with one single instrument. Weaving sound and silence, Kole both mimics sounds found in nature as well as cosmic layers which result in very emotionally expressive pieces. kolegalbraith.bandcamp.com/releases soundcloud.com/kolegalbraith/der-vogelmensch...

The next edition of our SUBSTATION PRESENTS series features UHBOOBIE EVENTS, the Seattle crew known for their infamous underground warehouse parties, as well as the Recess parties, always with that awesome family vibe -
CHRISTIAN MARTIN Since 1995, Christian Martin has been exploring electronic music from one end of the earth to the other; from full-moon parties in the deserts of California to the thumping, dark corners of the London club scene. Christian followed his love for spleen-rattling bass to San Francisco in 2000, where he met up with the now legendary dirtybird crew. The dirtybird BBQ was the brainchild of the four original members – Christian & his brother Justin Martin, and friends Claude VonStroke and Worthy. They had a personal mission to change the landscape of San Francisco house music by throwing an epic free party in the park, based on their new signature sound. In 2003, with nothing to lose and everything to gain, Christian bought a massive yet necessary sound system on his credit card. This set the standard for a new era of die-hard dedicated DIY producers, all with productions based on heavy bass-lines, smiling faces and dance floor delights. In 2006, Christian began releasing a steady stream of tracks, first collaborating with Justin under the “Martin Brothers” alias, as well as Claude VonStroke. The Martin Brothers partnership has produced such hip-hop influenced hits as ‘Duckface’, ‘Stoopit’, & ‘Dum’, as well as remixes for Ed Banger and Fool's Gold. On his own, he's released his own brand of bassy house music on labels such as dirtybird, Trapez, and Anabatic. His low end take on tech house has led to remixes for musical heavyweights such as Chromeo, Underworld, L-Vis 1990, and many more. Christian's devotion to large scale bass has allowed him to champion the dirtybird sound out of the park and onto giant soundsystems at clubs and festivals worldwide. From Fusion (Germany) to Shambhala (Canada), to Coachella & Symbiosis (US), there's a constant demand for what he describes as “bass from the ground up.” In San Francisco, Christian is a resident at dirtybird's raucous quarterly party at Mezzanine; and also at Monarch, the newly opened marvel of a club. His new musical alias Leroy Peppers has recently roared to life, offering an even heavier take on hip-hop influenced bass music. Whether it be Leroy or Christian behind the decks, if your hands aren't clapping your ass surely will be.... See MoreSee Less

Lead by Jenn Elizabeth on guitar/vocals and Tessa Breitbach on drums, Amelia was founded on the idea that raw and honest passion are the roots of what great music is made of.
After writing the demo for their first EP, self titled Amelia, Jenn and Tess locked in studio time with Producer Josh Schroeder (King 810, The Color Morale, In Hearts Wake). Jenn states "Josh understood our sound from the beginning. We didn't want to sound flashy, or super polished. We wanted listeners to hear our live sound on the cd. It's raw, it's real, it's passionate, that's what Amelia is about."
Since self releasing the debut EP in late 2015, Amelia has been on the road as much as possible, playing shows all over the Midwest, West and PNW states. Amelia is set to tour nationally in 2017.
