Scarlet Sessions: Faction

It’s been a while since I’ve played techno in a club setting so I’m really looking forward to jumping on the decks this Friday.

Every week for over a year now, the Techno Snobs collective have been steadily pushing the more obscure sounds of electronic music at Scarlet Lounge – upstairs from Monarch Theater in downtown Phoenix. If you came out to any of our Scarlet Sessions with the Melt crew earlier in the year, then you know the place.

I’ll be playing from 11-1230 in the main room alongside TX/Berlin based “MSRN” (Soundcloud) with Jeeezus on opening support. Cover is $5 before 11 and $10 after. See you there!

Doc Scott & Vector Burn!

Are we dreaming?? Pressure Drum & Bass is a new monthly event happening in Scottsdale, AZ, and for the fourth edition they’re bringing us the 31 Records founder & LEGEND Doc Scott alongside the OG Vector Burn!

This party is going to be absolutely bonkers. Doc has been doing the damn thang for as long as I’ve been alive, and Vector Burn is iconic in his own right (Paradise Lost anyone???). I’m ecstatic to have the opportunity to open for these talented artists and hope to see you all there.

Advance tickets are $15, grab them online at tickets.tavoo.co as usual. Check the promoter out on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pressurednbaz/

A night of darkness

scarlet sessions january 21st

This Friday I’ll be bringing a few good friends for my own curated night at our weekly Melt D&B collab/residency. These DJs effectively portray the darker side of drum and bass and are not afraid to play tracks from the more obscure side of the genre.

Time slots:

9:00 PM – 10:15 PM Dead Peak

10:15 PM – 11:30 PM Phonix

Melt v2.9 – Gigantor (Evol Intent)

The boys over at the Melt crew have formally invited me to jump on board as part of the team, and as my first resident booking I will be closing out a warehouse with Gigantor (remember Evol Intent?)! I’ve traditionally been wary of jumping in with a crew for various reasons, but everyone involved seems to have a burning passion and good balance between party and professional. As a bonus, every DJ in the group is very experienced and skilled. This is a great environment to exist in from an artistic standpoint – there is nothing more beneficial than having people around you pushing you to improve.

Evol Intent was one of the most influential musical forces that I discovered as a teenager when first getting familiar with electronic music. Not only being able to see one of the founding members in 2019, but also being a part of the party (AND throwing it in a WAREHOUSE) is a massive massive massive move for me personally. I could not be more excited for this event.

We’ve all been working hard to make sure this one is a big success, from promotion, to performance, to production. All angles have been covered and we are ecstatic to make this happen for Phoenix. We’ve had a large void when it comes to drum and bass in warehouses, so this will definitely be a step in the right direction again for phoenix.

Tickets are available for $10 via bandcamp, grab a presale now and save some money at the door:
