Crests & Troughs

Excited to be back in the warehouse alongside some familiar faces and talented artists. I’ll be playing a bit of industrial and EBM flavored techno for this party.

Crests & Troughs is a new take on the famed Peaks & Valleys music promotion group, it was created as a seperate outlet for expressing the darker and more obscure shades of electronic music.

D.Dan @ Scarlet Room

My good friends over at the Techno Snobs have invited me to open their first residency night over at the Scarlet Room in Downtown Phoenix. Starting on December 20th, they will be hosting techno once a week on the massive Turbosound stacks upstairs above the famous Monarch Theater.

This venue should be a great fit for their vibe; low ceilings, proper point-source PA, and a nice intimate setting. For the first event, they’ll be bringing techno talent D.Dan from Berlin. D.Dan is one of the first DJs I’ve felt “compatible” with in terms of intensity, pace, and style of mixing – so I am very excited to see him perform.

I’ll be starting the night off with my signature extra-terrestrial blend of ambient and techno, going from 930pm-11pm. Tickets are available now via Resident Advisor here:

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:
