Sassmouth – Aug 15th 09

Thanks to everyone that made it out to this truly family style event.
Lots of friendly faces. Some familiar – some new! What a great night to meet new friends and dance our assess of to
some of the freshest techno and tech-house we’ve heard in a while

Sassmouth was killer and she defiantly delivered the goods she promised. And talk about family, how cool was it that her sister and mom made it over from Spokane to party with us? Sassmouth really rocked the house.

Lets not forget NW newest heavyweights on the scene – DJ Shift & Miss Shelrawka.  There to really got the party started with some silky smooth techno that was perfect launching pad for our headline of the night.

Big ups to the Visual artist himself – Tracer for is hypnotic subtle vibes. And Vitamin Dee for these sick pictures of our Seattle Techno Family

Samantha Kern aka Sassmouth settled in Chicago from San Francisco via New York City in
2000 where she rapidly reoriented her life to the weekly rhythm of
electronic dance music culture. Using her musical training and diverse
experience performing live as both a member of string quartets and
punk bands in the Pacific Northwest, she aggressively attacked the
techno question throughout the first decade of the millennium. Sam’s
DJ sets reflect her love of dialectics – a tribute to her early
explorations into musical yin and yang. Stripped down sounds mutate
into jacking funky house, punchy techno, and beautiful sub bass lines
and melodies.

Sassmouth found a musical kinship with like-minded Chilean artists
while living in Santiago. She continues to return to her past
residence to perform at the techno centre, La Feria. Upon returning to
Chicago, Samantha performed regularly throughout the U.S., promoted a
variety of underground and club events in her home town, and built a
friendly and supportive online home for the electronic dance music
community with her website Sam also continues her
standard commute to beloved Detroit where she gained great inspiration
and experience playing at club events and the Detroit Electronic Music

Sam, now working out of her creative base in London, regularly
contributes original tracks and remixes to projects for the
Detroit-based label Hej Records while continuing to play dates in the
Americas and Europe. Sassmouth, always the social being, is currently
working on musical joint efforts with Jason Dunlap of Chicago, djing
back to backs with the Punisher of Detroit, and as ‘Pimpi Vampi’ with
Chilean partner in crime, Ivan Stipicic.
