Rick Wade at the Monkey Loft
Jan 21 all-day
Rick Wade at the Monkey Loft @ Monkey Loft | Seattle | Washington | United States

Viva Recordings is excited to welcome Rick Wade back to Seattle for our monthly event. He has not been to Seattle in some time and we are looking forward to having him and to promote is forth coming release on our label.

Rick Wade: Michigan born Rick Wade might not get the headlines of his more celebrated Detroit peers, but few have done as much to contribute to the house canon as he. For nigh on two decades ‘big daddy Rick’ has consistently turned out deeply channelled grooves that need every second of their often elongated lengths to have best effect. Peppered only lightly with strings, the odd breathy voice or some other delicate hook culled from the funk and soul sounds around which he grew up, Wade’s style is the perfect embodiment of minimum effort, maximum impact.

A famously rapid and prolific producer who turns out hundreds of excellent tracks on a non stop basis, Wade is also the force behind legendary imprint Harmonie Park, which has released classics from peers like Mike Huckaby amongst others. His own discography stretches to three pages and is a pure gold mine for house heads, with each track sounding as timeless as the next. Over the years, regular outings have been on quality imprints like Yore, Moods & Grooves and most recently Seuil & Le Loup’s Hold Youth, and, thankfully for us, show no signs of letting his foot off the pedal. In DJ terms Rick is just as assured, laying down sets that are tinged with funk and soul and keep you dancing in his long form grooves all night long. From Europe to the US, this true house legend has played every venue worth its salt.

Purity Ring at Q [DJ set]
Feb 1 all-day
Purity Ring at Q [DJ set]

Q Nightclub presents a DJ set from

PURITY RING: Purity Ring’s first album, Shrines, was a cohesive, beguiling and wholly unique universe of what the band called ‘Future Pop’. At the center of the amniotic swirl of Shrines was an undeniable nucleus of crystalline pop which presciently suggested both indie and popular music to come. Critics were psyched: ‘Best New Music’ from Pitchfork and praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and NPR, among others. They quickly amassed a rabid fanbase, toured relentlessly and sold out shows worldwide. On their second album, Another Eternity, Purity Ring trade the gorgeously claustrophobic atmospheres of Shrines for wide-open, muscular vistas of sound and luminous, up-front vocals. Crafting a lyrical universe of “sweat and dreams” populated by seacastles, rattling spines, and weeping drawers, Megan James wields concrete imagery and metaphor with increasingly direct, startling resonance. Corin Roddick’s gifts for evocative melody remain intact, but his drum work and use of space have been completely reforged: immaculately built and focused in service of the song. Though they are now working at a higher resolution, Purity Ring remain hands-on with every aspect of their project. As usual, the band produced and recorded Another Eternity entirely themselves. The pair worked to develop an innovative new live performance, and Megan designed the band’s onstage and video fashion.

Orbit Service, AriSawkaDoria, Michael Manahan & Tubbs & Oats/LIVE’N’LOVE at the Triple Door
Feb 2 all-day
Orbit Service, AriSawkaDoria, Michael Manahan & Tubbs & Oats/LIVE'N'LOVE at the Triple Door @ The Triple Door | Seattle | Washington | United States

Live N’ love has been cooking up one bad ass Lupercalia this year. Were joining forces with the Triple Door, Wake Up Productions and Zepto, to bring you a an extraordinary show. So tell your sweetie, V day is coming early this year.

LUPERCALIA: a pre-Roman pastoral festival observed in February; releasing, love, health, bounty, and fertility. It is a celebration of the fertile spirit, and a pantheon to PAN. The holiday was the inspiration for the western holiday of Valentines and a continuation of the ancient celebration of FEBRUA; which is the root for the name of the month February. It is a light hearted celebration intended to lift spirits and bring about a bountiful spring summer and harvest season. It is also to honor that romantic desire of connection and lust. We are celebrating this ancient holiday with a special gathering of talented and unique performers from the Northwest and beyond. Expect a heady evening of performance art, light sculptures, digital video mapping, live music performance (both electronic and acoustic), trapeze art, artisan vendors, and more!

Music:

Kenneth James Gibson (w/ Brian McBride of Stars of the Lid): the length and diversity of Kenneth James Gibson’s musical résumé is staggering. He’s been involved in over 200 releases under at least nine aliases; including [a]pendics.shuffle, dubLoner, eight frozen modules, and more .Traversing techno, dub, noise, pop and more; his penchant for shape-shifting through genres makes him a perfect pick for the Kompakt label’s Pop Ambient Series; whose stylistic parameters are clearly defined. Gibson knows his way around this genre however, and his dense textures avoid the fleeting drift that ambient music can fall. For this special event; Kenneth will be performing material from his new album “The Evening Falls” with his musical partner Brian McBride; of celebrated ambient/drone/indie group STARS OF THE LID.

AriSawkaDoria (featuring Kevin Sawka on drums): three of the Seattle underground music scene’s most innovative and celebrated artists (Kevin Sawka, Ari Joshua, Joe Doria) have joined forces to create a new sound combining the sound of tru-jazz, jungle beats, rock and dub. Their self-titled debut is produced by Santana drummer Michael Shrieve. AriSawkaDoria is the defining spirit of Seattle’s underground live music scene: their combination of jungle, jazz, rare groove, dub and improv transcends all preconceived notions of what is possible with electric groove music. Dance enthusiasts and jazz heads will both revel in the rhythmic intensity of AriSawkaDoria’s explorations.

Michael Manahan (exclusive LIVE downtempo set w/band): is an essential and vital element of the Pacific Northwest electronic music community; Hailing from Seattle, he brings DJ sets that are deep and heavily influenced by both cutting edge and ancient sounds. Known for mixing genres and styles in his sets, this DJ, performer, producer, and space cowboy is an innovator and mainstay of the Pacific Northwest dance community and tribal culture. Currently residing as the Lead Producer at Starborne Shows, Producing Partner of the world famous Decibel Festival, Lead Producer of Cascadia Festival, Co-Producer of the Starborne Electronic Stage at Seattle’s world famous Hempfest, Co-Owner of the Re-bar (Seattle Theatre/Night Club) and Co-Owner of Starborne Sound (high end concert sound systems, specializing in KV2 Audio). He has also released Singles and Remixes on Uniting Souls Music, Recovery Tech and Activated Records. His performances always up the love whether he is spinning tribal, deep house, techno, breaks, spacey downtempo or ambient, or just hanging out being himself.

Orbit Service (LIVE!–from Denver, CO – dead voices on air, legendary pink dots): Orbit Service is Randall Frazier and a bevvy of different collaborators including members of zoviet france, dead voices on air, legendary pink dots, and more. Hailing from the Rocky Mountain state of Colorado; Randall is a well respected sound engineer; just finishing a tour with respected industrial/psych/electronic band, Legendary Pink Dots; supporting them as both opening act and sound engineer.

Tubbs & Oats (exclusive LIVE set featuring Electrosect & Devin Sjodin): This immersive live electronic project features the production talents of Northwest natives Patrick Haenelt (electrosect, ganesha column) & Devin Sjodin (knosjo). Combining many years of collective production work and working with several Northwest bands and collectives, these two men have combined forces to create a lush world of bass heavy ambience and intricate glitches and beats. Equal parts headphone exploration, strong songwriting, and a keen ear for intricate sound exploration; this project will definitely take listeners on an exciting tour.

MUSIQUARIUM LOUNGE (21+): a comfortable environment to enjoy eclectic and diverse musics, artisan wares, spirits, wines, ales and gourmet chocolates. are also served by a friendly and talented bar staff, with music by:
DANE GARFIELD WILSON (live!!! rebar, chillography)

Q Nightclub presents an open to close set from

CLUB CHEVAL (DJ SET): Ask any great group and they will tell you the same; there is something magical that happens when they get in a room together and make music. Club cheval are no different. When Canblaster, Myd, Sam Tiba and Panteros666 -‐ each one a unique visionary from across the varied and vibrant French club music scene ­‐ come together they bounce off one another, daring each other with new ideas and striving to better one another. Together the four have created Club cheval, a place where genres melt together and become one; only making sense when put in order by the four members of the group. While it’s hard to place just what it is that makes Club cheval work -­ Panteros666 is best with rhythm and percussion; Canblaster caters for melodies; Myd excels at cutting and sampling; and Sam’s focus is on the vocal production ­‐ it’s the moments in which they crossover which really provides something special.

Apr 21 all-day

Deadmau5 returns to Seattle for headlining shows at the WaMu Theater on Saturday, April 22nd (sold out) and Friday, April 21st, 2017!!

The deadmau5 live experience has long been one of the most invigorating in music, taking listeners on a complete journey that melds his signature sound with a state-of-the-art live show.

The show will consist of new music from W:/2016ALBUM/, a myriad of original deadmau5 compositions ranging from atmospheric to techno to old-school synths with NME calling it, “a judicious side-step away from the plasticky insta-rush of EDM, it finds Zimmerman rebuilding his sound around the huge collection of classic and rare synths he’s lovingly assembled in his new studio.”

deadmau5′ new stage show, a kinetic version of his previous cube with many enhancements, recently made its debut last night via “Live In Rehearsals,” where he gave a livestream performance on his YouTube channel of songs from W:/2016ALBUM/ and unveiled his updated, custom-built Cube 2.1, giving not only a sneak peek of his new music, but also the opportunity to explore the famed cube that is central to his upcoming live performances. Standing at 15 ft. tall and 16 ft. wide, making it larger than its predecessors, Cube 2.1 features internal robots that push the sides of the cube, consisting of state-of-the-art LED panels, up and around while projecting brand new graphics.

On deadmau5’s YouTube channel in the coming weeks, experience exclusive content including the livestream performance, 360-degree and standard format performance videos of the lead single “Let Go (feat. Grabbitz),” and behind the scenes videos of his iconic LED cube for his upcoming tour. Subscribe to deadmau5’s YouTube channel to get all the latest videos.

In a culture where saying “where is the drop” being totally irrelevant to 2016, G Jones continues to compromise the moment of clarity at big festival sound systems. Jones rises to defy stereotypical electron marketable content, DJ press photos and recap videos, instead having placed emphasis where songs happen around the same time as back in his studio, contemplative, taking “no” for an answer. After several interviews proved disastrous, Jones finds social anxiety as a frequent reminder of art’s place in society. As some have saiad “electronic dance music dead” , Jones reminds us, “it’s only the beginning”.

Rick Wade at the Monkey Loft
Jan 21 all-day
Rick Wade at the Monkey Loft @ Monkey Loft | Seattle | Washington | United States

Viva Recordings is excited to welcome Rick Wade back to Seattle for our monthly event. He has not been to Seattle in some time and we are looking forward to having him and to promote is forth coming release on our label.

Rick Wade: Michigan born Rick Wade might not get the headlines of his more celebrated Detroit peers, but few have done as much to contribute to the house canon as he. For nigh on two decades ‘big daddy Rick’ has consistently turned out deeply channelled grooves that need every second of their often elongated lengths to have best effect. Peppered only lightly with strings, the odd breathy voice or some other delicate hook culled from the funk and soul sounds around which he grew up, Wade’s style is the perfect embodiment of minimum effort, maximum impact.

A famously rapid and prolific producer who turns out hundreds of excellent tracks on a non stop basis, Wade is also the force behind legendary imprint Harmonie Park, which has released classics from peers like Mike Huckaby amongst others. His own discography stretches to three pages and is a pure gold mine for house heads, with each track sounding as timeless as the next. Over the years, regular outings have been on quality imprints like Yore, Moods & Grooves and most recently Seuil & Le Loup’s Hold Youth, and, thankfully for us, show no signs of letting his foot off the pedal. In DJ terms Rick is just as assured, laying down sets that are tinged with funk and soul and keep you dancing in his long form grooves all night long. From Europe to the US, this true house legend has played every venue worth its salt.

Purity Ring at Q [DJ set]
Feb 1 all-day
Purity Ring at Q [DJ set]

Q Nightclub presents a DJ set from

PURITY RING: Purity Ring’s first album, Shrines, was a cohesive, beguiling and wholly unique universe of what the band called ‘Future Pop’. At the center of the amniotic swirl of Shrines was an undeniable nucleus of crystalline pop which presciently suggested both indie and popular music to come. Critics were psyched: ‘Best New Music’ from Pitchfork and praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and NPR, among others. They quickly amassed a rabid fanbase, toured relentlessly and sold out shows worldwide. On their second album, Another Eternity, Purity Ring trade the gorgeously claustrophobic atmospheres of Shrines for wide-open, muscular vistas of sound and luminous, up-front vocals. Crafting a lyrical universe of “sweat and dreams” populated by seacastles, rattling spines, and weeping drawers, Megan James wields concrete imagery and metaphor with increasingly direct, startling resonance. Corin Roddick’s gifts for evocative melody remain intact, but his drum work and use of space have been completely reforged: immaculately built and focused in service of the song. Though they are now working at a higher resolution, Purity Ring remain hands-on with every aspect of their project. As usual, the band produced and recorded Another Eternity entirely themselves. The pair worked to develop an innovative new live performance, and Megan designed the band’s onstage and video fashion.

Feb 2 all-day
Orbit Service, AriSawkaDoria, Michael Manahan & Tubbs & Oats/LIVE'N'LOVE at the Triple Door @ The Triple Door | Seattle | Washington | United States

Live N’ love has been cooking up one bad ass Lupercalia this year. Were joining forces with the Triple Door, Wake Up Productions and Zepto, to bring you a an extraordinary show. So tell your sweetie, V day is coming early this year.

LUPERCALIA: a pre-Roman pastoral festival observed in February; releasing, love, health, bounty, and fertility. It is a celebration of the fertile spirit, and a pantheon to PAN. The holiday was the inspiration for the western holiday of Valentines and a continuation of the ancient celebration of FEBRUA; which is the root for the name of the month February. It is a light hearted celebration intended to lift spirits and bring about a bountiful spring summer and harvest season. It is also to honor that romantic desire of connection and lust. We are celebrating this ancient holiday with a special gathering of talented and unique performers from the Northwest and beyond. Expect a heady evening of performance art, light sculptures, digital video mapping, live music performance (both electronic and acoustic), trapeze art, artisan vendors, and more!

Music:

Kenneth James Gibson (w/ Brian McBride of Stars of the Lid): the length and diversity of Kenneth James Gibson’s musical résumé is staggering. He’s been involved in over 200 releases under at least nine aliases; including [a]pendics.shuffle, dubLoner, eight frozen modules, and more .Traversing techno, dub, noise, pop and more; his penchant for shape-shifting through genres makes him a perfect pick for the Kompakt label’s Pop Ambient Series; whose stylistic parameters are clearly defined. Gibson knows his way around this genre however, and his dense textures avoid the fleeting drift that ambient music can fall. For this special event; Kenneth will be performing material from his new album “The Evening Falls” with his musical partner Brian McBride; of celebrated ambient/drone/indie group STARS OF THE LID.

AriSawkaDoria (featuring Kevin Sawka on drums): three of the Seattle underground music scene’s most innovative and celebrated artists (Kevin Sawka, Ari Joshua, Joe Doria) have joined forces to create a new sound combining the sound of tru-jazz, jungle beats, rock and dub. Their self-titled debut is produced by Santana drummer Michael Shrieve. AriSawkaDoria is the defining spirit of Seattle’s underground live music scene: their combination of jungle, jazz, rare groove, dub and improv transcends all preconceived notions of what is possible with electric groove music. Dance enthusiasts and jazz heads will both revel in the rhythmic intensity of AriSawkaDoria’s explorations.

Michael Manahan (exclusive LIVE downtempo set w/band): is an essential and vital element of the Pacific Northwest electronic music community; Hailing from Seattle, he brings DJ sets that are deep and heavily influenced by both cutting edge and ancient sounds. Known for mixing genres and styles in his sets, this DJ, performer, producer, and space cowboy is an innovator and mainstay of the Pacific Northwest dance community and tribal culture. Currently residing as the Lead Producer at Starborne Shows, Producing Partner of the world famous Decibel Festival, Lead Producer of Cascadia Festival, Co-Producer of the Starborne Electronic Stage at Seattle’s world famous Hempfest, Co-Owner of the Re-bar (Seattle Theatre/Night Club) and Co-Owner of Starborne Sound (high end concert sound systems, specializing in KV2 Audio). He has also released Singles and Remixes on Uniting Souls Music, Recovery Tech and Activated Records. His performances always up the love whether he is spinning tribal, deep house, techno, breaks, spacey downtempo or ambient, or just hanging out being himself.

Orbit Service (LIVE!–from Denver, CO – dead voices on air, legendary pink dots): Orbit Service is Randall Frazier and a bevvy of different collaborators including members of zoviet france, dead voices on air, legendary pink dots, and more. Hailing from the Rocky Mountain state of Colorado; Randall is a well respected sound engineer; just finishing a tour with respected industrial/psych/electronic band, Legendary Pink Dots; supporting them as both opening act and sound engineer.

Tubbs & Oats (exclusive LIVE set featuring Electrosect & Devin Sjodin): This immersive live electronic project features the production talents of Northwest natives Patrick Haenelt (electrosect, ganesha column) & Devin Sjodin (knosjo). Combining many years of collective production work and working with several Northwest bands and collectives, these two men have combined forces to create a lush world of bass heavy ambience and intricate glitches and beats. Equal parts headphone exploration, strong songwriting, and a keen ear for intricate sound exploration; this project will definitely take listeners on an exciting tour.

MUSIQUARIUM LOUNGE (21+): a comfortable environment to enjoy eclectic and diverse musics, artisan wares, spirits, wines, ales and gourmet chocolates. are also served by a friendly and talented bar staff, with music by:
DANE GARFIELD WILSON (live!!! rebar, chillography)

CLUB CHEVAL (DJ SET): Ask any great group and they will tell you the same; there is something magical that happens when they get in a room together and make music. Club cheval are no different. When Canblaster, Myd, Sam Tiba and Panteros666 -‐ each one a unique visionary from across the varied and vibrant French club music scene ­‐ come together they bounce off one another, daring each other with new ideas and striving to better one another. Together the four have created Club cheval, a place where genres melt together and become one; only making sense when put in order by the four members of the group. While it’s hard to place just what it is that makes Club cheval work -­ Panteros666 is best with rhythm and percussion; Canblaster caters for melodies; Myd excels at cutting and sampling; and Sam’s focus is on the vocal production ­‐ it’s the moments in which they crossover which really provides something special.

Deadmau5 at the WaMu Theater [2nd SHOW]
Apr 21 all-day

Deadmau5 returns to Seattle for headlining shows at the WaMu Theater on Saturday, April 22nd (sold out) and Friday, April 21st, 2017!!

The deadmau5 live experience has long been one of the most invigorating in music, taking listeners on a complete journey that melds his signature sound with a state-of-the-art live show. He will be taking his new album W:/2016ALBUM/ on the “LOTS OF SHOWS IN A ROW TOUR” in 2017 with a new live show and an even bigger cube. The show will consist of new music from W:/2016ALBUM/, a myriad of original deadmau5 compositions ranging from atmospheric to techno to old-school synths with NME calling it, “a judicious side-step away from the plasticky insta-rush of EDM, it finds Zimmerman rebuilding his sound around the huge collection of classic and rare synths he’s lovingly assembled in his new studio.”

deadmau5′ new stage show, a kinetic version of his previous cube with many enhancements, recently made its debut last night via “Live In Rehearsals,” where he gave a livestream performance on his YouTube channel of songs from W:/2016ALBUM/ and unveiled his updated, custom-built Cube 2.1, giving not only a sneak peek of his new music, but also the opportunity to explore the famed cube that is central to his upcoming live performances. Standing at 15 ft. tall and 16 ft. wide, making it larger than its predecessors, Cube 2.1 features internal robots that push the sides of the cube, consisting of state-of-the-art LED panels, up and around while projecting brand new graphics.

On deadmau5’s YouTube channel in the coming weeks, experience exclusive content including the livestream performance, 360-degree and standard format performance videos of the lead single “Let Go (feat. Grabbitz),” and behind the scenes videos of his iconic LED cube for his upcoming tour. Subscribe to deadmau5’s YouTube channel to get all the latest videos.

G Jones at Neumos
Apr 22 all-day
G Jones at Neumos @ Neumos | Seattle | Washington | United States

Upper Left presents G Jones at Neumos with Sayer & Yheti for the Visions 2017 Tour.

In a culture where saying “where is the drop” being totally irrelevant to 2016, G Jones continues to compromise the moment of clarity at big festival sound systems. Jones rises to defy stereotypical electron marketable content, DJ press photos and recap videos, instead having placed emphasis where songs happen around the same time as back in his studio, contemplative, taking “no” for an answer. After several interviews proved disastrous, Jones finds social anxiety as a frequent reminder of art’s place in society. As some have saiad “electronic dance music dead” , Jones reminds us, “it’s only the beginning”.
