JOEY WEBB HouseMen SF, PASSAGE SEA, Lovelazer Productions Recognized in San Francisco as a formative creator of the socially popular and musically talented Housemen collective, Joey Webb is among the elite handful of people that seem inadvertently destined to weave a foundry of eclectic sounds that will appeal to the masses. Discriminately, he was raised with a foundation for soul music when his father opened a local record store in 1965 – from this Joey took an enamored stance on music and forthwith found his outlets for expression. It was only after 20 years of dance and pursuant to a major in dance did he find the need to create sounds and flow to appease the bodily movement he had worked with for so long. Not long after his dabbles as a DJ, he was discovered by the likes of San Francisco’s legendary Devotion Records. Joey has surfaced as an extremely versatile DJ through the partnership he carries with local and international promoters. Although he is adaptable to the soulful house thread, his splash of flair lies in the rhythmic gestures of funk to tech, Brazilian to Afro-Haitian sonnets and his ability to convene multiple forms of sound, from nu-jazz to hip-hop and anything saucy in between. J. Webb has played a wide-range of big sound clubs as well as a other venues scattered throughout California, Texas, Washington and New York. As a regular guest at San Francisco’s staple soulful house events Devotion and Remedy in the early 2000's and more recently in the Seattle house scene, Joey has stretched his persona and positive vibe to prove his charisma as a performer. He is just as vibrant as the diverse collection of music he brings with him to every gig. These days Joey calls Seattle home where he has had numerous guest appearances at Seattle's own Flammable at Rebar, The Mix up at The Woods and various events at Monkey Loft. Living in Seattle for over 4 years, Joey Webb is now a staple in the Seattle house music scene Stay Tuned ~~~~~ THE LOVEVIRUS (1L <3 V) The LoveVirus has infected the world of electronic music with his uplifting style of booty-moving madness, and there is no cure for this contagion. No dance floor is safe from the spread of his love-based beats delivered as toxic concoction of freaky fun; this DJ and producer contaminates every ear he meets with his epic illness. Diagnosis: Dance! ~~~~~ AKSION DNB Tuesdays Aksion has carved his name in the Seattle rave and club scenes over the past decade through his love of Drum And Bass. Through his work as a DJ and promoter, he’s established himself as one of the leaders of the DNB community in the Northwest. However not many know that his electronic roots started with House music. His parents instilled a passion for all forms of music, but it’s the Disco they gave him that truly changed his life. As a young raver in the 90’s he was drawn to the soulful, funky sounds that he recognized from those vinyl records and was hooked on this new evolution of sound. His love for those aesthetics even shows up when he plays DNB. Aksion is known for having a very unique and entertaining execution when behind the decks and can’t wait to bring his own style to the Seattle House scene in 2015, starting off with the beloved Soft Option family. ~~~~~ KARL KAMAKAHI: De La Creme Soundsystem Karl Kamakahi is the founder of the De La Creme vision and has been Djing since 1989. He began experimenting with freestyle, transitioned into techno, and eventually felt the most at home with house music by 1992. Karl has lived and played all over the mid-west in places like Minneapolis, Denver, Fargo, Rapid City, Madison, St. Paul, and Bismarck. In Seattle, he has played at numerous venues such as the Monkey Loft, Electric Tea Garden, REBAR, The Last Supper Club, Crimson, Heavens, Trinity, Merchants Cafe, Docs Underground, See Sound Lounge, EMP, Chapel and Noir in Portland. He currently leads the way with local house talents during Soft Option at Monkey Loft, held on the 1st Saturdays in Seattle. ~~~~~ $10 cover till 2am, $15 after $10 cover all night for regulars and those wearing DLC pins or Soft Option merchandise.
