Travis Baron
Tech House / Techno / Hard Techno

Dance Floor ignitor, Travis Baron, has been banging out techno’s best for well over a decade now. Inspired by local Seattle Techno jocks back in the late 90’s, Travis started throwing one offs and club nights around town winning huge accolades. Those early days helped to define his own sound. Buying vinyl every payday and building an arsenal for over 10 years has paid off big time. Having played alongside techno superfreaks like Kevin Saunderson, Neil Landstrom, Cari Lekebusch, Adam X, Frankie Bones and Woody Mcbride, Travis Baron comes to the decks prepared to slay faces. In 2007 Baron teamed up with Seattle local destroyer M’Chateau to produce the Knightriders Micro Rave Series. Since then Knightriders Inc. has be responsible for producing renowned techno lounge/club nights and the best in underground Seattle Techno entertainment. In an effort to preserve the vinyl format, Travis also produces the NW’s premier yearly Vinyl only DJ talent competition “Battle of the Megamix”. Other projects include the new KR techno label and “Static Guide”, a local zine dedicated to Seattle Culture, Music and Arts. Travis, still to this day, plays 100% vinyl techno sets designed to drop jaws and shake ass. With over a thousand records constantly rotating in and out of his Seattle storage unit you can be sure to experience specially designed and uniquely different sets for every event you find him performing at.

Review by Catherine Jade
“Closing out the night was Travis Baron (Knight Riders), who played a set covered in grime and distortion. Screeching synth lines and big-room beats kept the energy up, while deep sub bass added another rhythmic layer. The selection was just right to keep the afterhours vibe going.”

“TRAVIS BARON, one of Seattle’s hardest sounding and working DJs, brings a set of fierce, banging techno like no one else can.” Ian P.

Write up By Shilo Urban

Travis Baron has been producing events and banging out hard techno for over a decade, much to the delight of the techno-heads who crawl the streets of Seattle. Co-founder of Battle of the Mega Mixes, Service Systems, as well as the Knight Riders music collective, Travis B is a needed fixture of the Seattle electronic music scene for his fat beats as well as for the sick parties and dance nights he throws. The energy radiating from the dance floor always goes up a notch when Travis steps up to the decks; you can feel it vibrating up from the soles of your feet all the way to your brain where it takes up a reverberating residence. Having played alongside techno superfreaks Kevin Saunderson, Neil Landstrom, Cari Lekebusch, and Frankie Bones, Travis Baron knows his shit and will continue to light fires and ignite dance floors in the Seattle techno culture.
