I'm getting excited!!! Here's your lineup: -Enki [SEA] (ONSET, Soma, Family Night) Enki a.k.a Rian Jones, from Seattle, Washington has been a long standing pillar in the underground music scene. With solid roots set in hip-hop, he has expanded his musical repertoire to encompass soulful electronic music for a combination that is sure to spark anyones musical interest. Enki first got involved in the community as a promoter. And, although he has always been musically inclined; he started producing underground music in 1998. In 2006, Enki co-founded Soma Events and eventually started a monthly event called Soma Drum and Bass Sessions. In 2010, he began exploring his career as a DJ, and has made a solid reputation for himself in the electronic community. His most celebrated talent on the decks has been his ability to read the crowd and superb musical selection to set the tone for any party. Enki is inspired by the moment, his love for the people and positive energy, and wants to spread joy through music; because life is about being happy. https://soundcloud.com/enkimusic/enki-perfect-storm Smartbomb [SEA] (Soma Events, Onset Drumandbass) This guy is a fucking hermit… Don't expect to see him anywhere but at a DnB Show or at a homey's afterhours… Most of us actual heads understand that that means he's holed up with his music a lot of the time… Since his music does most of the talking, we'll let it speak for itself: https://www.mixcloud.com/ONSET_AUDIO/smartbomb-sublevel-sessions-vol-1/ Jason Curtis [SEA] (Native Soul Recordings, De La Creme Soundsystem, Soma D&B Krew) Playing a special Old School Breaks set!

They spit high-energy positive hip-hop with mad fire and stage presence… I'm hella stoked to have them rep Hip-Hop on my birthday. http://kineticemcees.com/ https://soundcloud.com/kineticemcees-1/sets/kinetic-emcees-5th-element-album Pharo [PDX] BloodShot Riddims Crew, Chronic Earwax) Pharo has been rocking dance floors for over a decade. He's DJ'ed for Bad Habitat, Kable Roc, NEXO and Yamio 263; he's opened up for Zion I Crew, Gift of Gab, The Chicharones, Old Dominion and J BOOG; and he kills dancefloors at Festivals, clubs, and house parties… Since joining with Bloodshot Riddims and Chronic Earwax, he has created his own style and flavor behind the decks. He likes to mix and manipulate vinyl and Serato together making his own remix blends and mashups. The emotion he puts into track selection transfers directly into rocking' dance floors with a message.
