Bass Fishin - March 13, 2009

Come celebrate with myself and all my fellow Pisces. 3 rooms of music for half the night, then down to two rooms to finish the night, GOMP decor, big sound, and a good cause (http://www.kiva.org/). On top of all that, I want to bring the good, strong, caring, loving vibe of our community to my old community.

Now some may question committing to traveling such a distance for a party, that's why the tickets have been kept very reasonable (see below) and check out the lineup (see a little further below):

Advanced tickets are $25 (with $5 from each going to Kiva)
Tickets at the door are $35 (with $5 from each going to Kiva)
Also willing to take any donations above and beyond the ticket sales at the door.

Tickets not printed yet. Hopefully soon. Pre-order tickets available through:
John Babiuk (780-340-5646) and
Adam Sommers (780 893-8370)
Matt Doll (780-902-5444)
Hoping to also have tickets available at Foosh as soon as they are printed.

Freq Nasty @ Starlite

Dec.6th Oh Snap! presents

The return of ...


FREQ NASTY [ Botchit - NZ / UK ]

Freq Nasty (also spelled as FreQ Nasty) is a breakbeat, dub, and electronica producer. Born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand, breakbeat pioneer Freq Nasty is widely-acknowledged by critics for consistently breaking boundaries with his music, from his classic breaks tunes such as "Boomin Back Atcha" and "Move Back," to remixes of pop icons like Fatboy Slim, Kelis and KRS One. At the same time, Freq is receptive to all that surrounds him; for example, his move to London and immersion in its developing scenes in the 80s resulted in seminal releases on Botchit & Scarper. Forward thinking and progressive, his releases evidenced a sign of the fast-moving times.

These days, FreQ Nasty is staying one step ahead of the ongoing, hype-fueled evolution of electronic music with his contributions to the Futurestep sound. The recently released FABRICLIVE.42 mix album is evidence of this shapeshifting sound: with it, Freq takes on the bass heavy stomp of L-Vis 1990's UK take on Baltimore house, the blistering shatter of TRG, and several of his own storming productions, including Creator, a co-production with Switch on a Santogold tune released in 2007.[1]

Freq is also well-known in the music scene for his social activism. In early 2008, Freq launched Giveback.net, a socially-conscious site featuring music campaigns, whereby musicians donate music in support of non-profit "action campaigns".The first campaign, in support of the Tibetan People's Uprising Movement, featured a collaboration with West Coast breaks artist, Bassnectar, Viva Tibet. The campaign successfully raised $8,000 in support of TPUM's March to Tibet earlier this year.[2]. His reasons for supporting the campaign, in his own words:

"It's time we as a music community reached out on a grassroots level and showed some love to those who need it, to whatever extent we feel able. Most of us don't vote, most of us see the news as something that happens to somebody else, and most of us have excess that the majority of the people we see on the news can only dream of. If we can help spread the idea that creating positive change in the world elsewhere is an investment in our own security and happiness then I'm a happy DJ."[3]

Freq also collaborated with San Francisco-based Heavyweight Dub Champion, remixing the group's Snared tune, in support of The World Family's creation of an irrigation system in the village of Gara Dima, Ethiopia.[4], and Michael Franti, remixing Franti's "The Future", in support of a Bay Area nonprofit to help create a music studio for at-risk youth.

2 X 4 DJ Set with DJ Dan vs Donald Glaude

Confident. Exuberant. Raw. Innovative. These are just a few of the words industry insiders and fans have used to describe the talent behind one of America’s favorite house DJs, Donald Glaude. Ranked #68 on DJMag.com’s Top 100 DJs List in 2005, Donald skyrocketed to #48 this year and his genius keeps on growing…

Together Donald & DJ Dan sparked the rave scene in Seattle and developed large followings. Knowing that Donald possessed an energy and ability to work the crowd that was unparalleled to anyone else on the circuit, Dan convinced San Francisco’s legendary Funky Tekno Tribe to bring down his good friend Donald to play at one of their parties. Donald’s talents quickly made him a permanent fixture on F.T.T.’s roster.
