Mode 4 ~ Mode4's career began back in 1998 after attending his first drum and bass show in Seattle,Wa while enlisted in the Navy. He knew right then and there, that this is what he was supposed to be doing. He made his way into the Seattle scene as a drum and bass DJ in early 2003, after spending the previous 5 years behind doors mastering his craft. Making a lot of noise locally in the PNW, his bookings picked up rapidly and he found himself rockin the decks on a regular from 2003-2007. The BazSic Elements crew picked him up in 2003 as their first and only Drum and Bass DJ. Later, one of Seattle's godfathers of Hardstyle, Check 6, would pick him up for XDJS/Wired. Finding a new found love for Breaks in early 2004, Mike switched gears to book out for both genres. Fast forward to 2017 where he has been picked up by the Fraktured Seattle crew, it has now been 20 years since he picked up his first piece of wax, and has no plans to stop here... - Fraktured - Compound Records
YOSUTEBITO – San Francisco, California / Left Coast, USA Lotus Mathematics / Baby Donkey Productions / Rhythm Method / Emergency Room YOSUTEBITO: Taken from the Japanese word, meaning recluse. Yosutebito’s persona has been synonymous with Drum & Bass in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 19 years. Formerly known as Bicolas of Skills DJ Workshop and DanceRecords.com acclaim. Beginning his journey into mixing with the sounds of Jungle and Hardcore Techno at raves and nightclubs in 1998 with a residency at Skills Events in San Francisco and Oakland. As the co-founder and host of the popular monthly nightclub, “Rhythm Method” he was directly responsible for hosting devastating sloughs of massive headliners over the years. Many of which had never before performed in the United States. At the time, Yosutebito was known as Bicolas and was the Drum & Bass buyer for not one, but three bay area record stores, instrumental in the growth of Dance records.com, and was a sales rep for Nemesis Music Distribution. Between his night club project Rhythm Method and arranging Drum & Bass stages at every Skills Productions event, between the years of 1998 and 2008 he had already been opening for acts such as Evol Intent, Spor, Calyx, Black Sun Empire, Noisia, Pendulum, Concord Dawn, Shy FX, Ewun, John B, Dieselboy and DJ Hype. In 2007 he was the only San Francisco local to have ever opened for Andy C & MC GQ, which took place at the SF venue, Club Mighty. Prior to and since then, has also shared the stage with other mega-artists Phace, Sub Focus, Bad Company, Cause 4 Concern, Dom & Roland, The Upbeats, Gein, Dylan, Limewax, B-Key, Aphrodite, and more. Yosutebito is known for transcending blends of futuristic, technotic, neurotic, Neurofunk, seamlessly drifting in and out of lush, dreamy Liquidfunk with all kinds of soul for your ear hole. He is also known to be quite proficient with Old School Jungle, Intelligent D&B, Breakbeats, House, and Techno. Coining the term “Neurodisco”, Yosutebito has always been a consistent crowd favorite and guaranteed dance floor mover. Shifting into the production of his very own brand of Drum & Bass music, he has shown a fierce interest in synthesis, recently leaking two unsigned floor smashers. Currently getting heavy DJ support around the Bay Area as a profound Drum & Bass artist and teaming up with US producer Miss Haze to create the powerhouse production duo “Lost Cat Reward”. Yosutebito’s recent solo release, “Metamorphosis” unleashed this May 2017, along with plenty of other tunes underway and two decades of DJ experience, you can expect to hear plenty more from this re-emerging anomaly.. www.vimeo.com/yosutebito YosutebitosDnB@Twitter.com www.mixcloud.com/yosutebito Instagram@The_Real_Yosutebito www.soundcloud.com/yosutebito www.facebook.com/yosutebitomusic www.soundcloud.com/lostcatandreward www.yosutebito-babydonkeyprod.tumblr.com/

The Sinister Six Invade Ballard/Fremont on August 17th! At Substation - Right Next to the Power Station!! 10 Million Bolts of Garage, Punk, Power Pop & Rock 'n' Roll!! Line-Up: The Sinister Six Die Nasty The Heels Secret Superpower
Geist & The Sacred Ensemble/ Hound Dog Taylor's Hand / The Sheen
Substation August 18th doors @ 9pm 8$
Geist & the Sacred Ensemble
Geist & the Sacred Ensemble forge a doom-inflected folk ritualism; dirges tinged with Eastern psychedelia and meandering meditative trances. The singing is with a deep and slow delivery, further heightening the groups mystic aspirations and heady sonics. At their greatest, Geist & the Sacred Ensemble’s tunes exist as an ever-changing pilgrimage; transforming their abstract drifts into apocalyptic folk hymns or private confessionals. In addition to acoustic and electric guitars, bass and percussion kits. They use gongs, gamelans, banjo and tools like power drills, hammers and chains to add texture. geistthesacredensemble.bandcamp.com/
Hound Dog Taylor's Hand
Purveyors of the Avant-Primitive Taking its name from the six-fingered blues slide guitarist, the group creates spontaneous compositions rooted in the language of the blues and free jazz. Reverence for the roots of improvised music meets an unbridled passion to push boundaries, making for a propulsive and unpredictable sound. hdth.bandcamp.com/
The Sheen are a quintet from Bellingham, WA with two drummers who draw inspiration from pataphysics, shellfish farming, Charlie Chaplin, avant-garde jazz, psychedelia, trash, noise rock, and West African music. The group often utilizes jarring contrasts, unpredictability, harmonized guitars, electroacoustics, and free improvisation, without completely discarding forms or songwriting techniques common to rock music.
