NAHA & EVA ON C89FM- [Saturday, January 26th]

That's right, two of Seattle's most bad-ass ladies will be playing live/on air in the C89FM studios Saturday the 26th from 10-12pm. Tune in and win tickets to next Friday's MBV#5 Party!

Here are the party details again...
The 5th Annual...
'My Bloody Valentine is Shameless' party
Friday February 1st

The trouble started back in February of 2004 when Shameless hosted its Saturday night weekly at the Alibi Room. Rather than fall victim to the annual Hallmark holiday the crew turned Valentine's Day upside down by literally wearing their heart on their sleeve. Costumes were encouraged, make-up was generously applied and a raucous anti-Valentine's Day party has ensued each February since.

This year the 5th annual 'My Bloody Valentine is Shameless' grows in size and yet remains underground. The two room, all night party takes place under Interstate 5 at Hengst Studios. With Brooklyn's Trouble & Bass crew mates flying into Seattle for an exclusive appearance, a star studded local DJ line-up and a fashion show by Hot Shit Design, the cold month of February will heat up for this one night.

Passions (Trouble & Bass, Kitsune) returns to Seattle with a live set after his smashing debut at Broken Disco last year. Star Eyes (Trouble & Bass, XLR8R) joins him, returning to the west coast where she started DJing over 15 years ago. She regularly played with local veterans Eva & Naha who are also on the bill. Add to the mix a live breaks set by Novatron & Shapeshifter plus DJ sets by members of Shameless, Club Pop, Innerflight, Naha Army and Fourthcity and you have yourself an underground party that will be talked about for months.

However, with all of the great music lined up, the 5th annual event is more about people getting dressed up for 'Halloween in February' and taking a 'tongue in cheek' attitude towards the mid month holiday. To assist there will be a beautification/gorification station on hand to help everyone get festive. Hot Shit Design will be presenting a fashion show early on and there are rumors of another heart shaped pinata being present again this year. Watch out for hipsters, sex toys, old school heads, singles, sheep, ravers, heavy bass, lovers, burners, and goths...

See you on February 1st!!

PASSIONS Live! (NYC) [Trouble & Bass, Kitsune]
Passions was formed in the summer of 2006 by Ben Deitz after attending a rave in Berlin. While Ben is the only band member who will reveal his name and face, each member of Passions brings a unique history to the band; from Deitz's being mentored by a former member of Snap in high school, to another band mate's experiences in the the early 80's LA punk scene and with Chaos Magick. All of Passions however, share a love of dance music, from 90's hardcore, to electro-house, to grime and anything in between. Recently, all of these styles came together on Kitsune's 2007 release entitled "Emergency". Some know Ben as Mathhead. Others know him as Passions. For this year's Shameless party, Passions will deliver a specially crafted live set. Those that caught him performing at Broken Disco II for his Seattle debut know there will be equal parts disco, grime & bass.

STAR EYES DJ (NYC) [Trouble & Bass, Syrup Girls]
Star Eyes is one half of the Syrup Girls and part of the raucous Trouble & Bass crew from NYC. Although she's active in NYC's music scene as a music editor for XLR8R, her 15+ years of experience behind the decks takes her back to another generation of DJs. In the mid 90s she was an active Jungle/DnB DJ in San Francisco playing regularly up in Seattle at places like Naf with Eva, Naha and many others. Her self described influences span more than just genres. Breakbeat hardcore. Staying up too late. Siouxsie. Raw spaces/places. Notorious B.I.G. Depeche Mode. Bass in yr face. The Prodigy. Strobe lights. 808s and 909s. Wizards & elves. Maker's Mark. Dubplates. Boots n braces. The quiet storm. Ludacris. NY Times Sunday crossword. Andy C. Paper Rad. Fugazi. Fonts and lettering. Panda hats. White gloves. Love notes. DJ Hype. Jokes jokes jokes. Sharpies. Things that go bang. In other words it sounds like: Underground bass in your face.

EVA - DJ [iO Music, Work it Baby!]
Raised in the Seattle area, Eva is considered to be one of the most promising DJ's to emerge from the US. She is in constant demand to perform alongside the worlds top DJs... Paul Van Dyk, Tiesto, Oakenfold, Hernan Cattaneo, John Digweed, James Zabiela, Satoshi Tomeii, Adam Freeland, Hybrid and Sander Kleinenberg to name but a few. Her forward-thinking approach, superb A&R sensibility, and cutting-edge style has captured the attention of everyone from Pete Tong, and Felix Da Housecat to James Lavelle. It was Lavelle who gave Eva her first big break, an invitation to play at arguably the best club in the world, Fabric in the UK. Her unique diversity and natural ability to connect with her audience make her a crowd favorite. Eva has headlined the hottest venues across the globe in such destinations as Jakarta Indonesia, Seoul South Korea, Hong Kong, China, LA, San Francisco, Miami, New York and the UK. Not only is Eva an amazing DJ talent, she co-produced the sublime remix of UNKLE's Invasion, with the legendary producer Medway, which features the vocals of Massive Attack's 3D. "Invasion", was featured on James Lavelle's Global Underground Romania album, and received international critical acclaim, as well as high praise from her peers, and music lovers everywhere. For Shameless' 5th annual event, Eva's bringing it back to the underground with a rare set that pushes the boundaries of what electro sounds like today.

It's been a long time since NAHA's original crew TRUSKOOL started bringing hardcore legends to Seattle and since then she has carried the flag for hardcore and breakcore in the NW. Add the elements of rap, grime, punk, ragga, and electro and you've got an amalgamation of sounds that has inspired an army. If you like rough and rugged tracks and bass-heavy mash-ups, then pull up those boot straps and grab your helmet because its time to get RAW.

(Shameless, Broken Disco)
Raised on the industrial, new wave, and pop music of the time, in the late 80's Recess found his second home at the now defunct Club Underground in Seattle's University District. Using these early experiences as a platform, he started collecting records and honing his skills at various clubs around the Northwest; quickly establishing himself as a formidable performer. Recess is the main force behind local collective Shameless (responsible for Broken Disco, Electric Avenue, BootyLIB, the Official Decibel Festival afterparties and numerous other local one offs with artists such as Modeselektor, Drop the Lime, Egyptian Lover, Godfather & Tittsworth) and he continues to turn heads with his unique take on dance music. He's played alongside heavy hitters such as Modeselektor, Green Velvet, Felix Da Housecat, Damian Lazarus, MSTRKRFT, John Tejada, DJ Assault, Ewan Pearson, Smash TV and could quite easily be caught playing electro/discopunk at one club, baile funk/bmore club/ghetto tech at another, or techno/house depending upon the crowd and party. His versatility has led to being nominated in 2006 for the Seattle Weekly's Best Local DJ. Whether it's an afterhours loft space, major club, mountaintop, or random BASSment; Recess consistently brings the sounds and energy to fit any dance party.

A man of peace, a man of truth and a man of some serious fucking wicked voodoo science. Nova blazes on-- from dusty border towns to urban Utopia. Using/abusing the Korg Electribe line of outboard modules, our man brings the electro-breaks solid and deep. His sound is thick and highly danceable. Every performance is an improvised mixture of beats and bass; keeping the flow interesting as well as making the heads happy while they dance. This is not music for sitting back and scratching your chin. It is the dance floor that Nova has engaged and his audience makes it clear that they are grateful for the favor.
Of special note: DJ Shapeshifter will be performing with Nova on the scratch mix, so be ready for dance floor mayhem!!!

LEVI CLARK - DJ [Shameless]
Levi's musical background started at an early age and varies among rock, electronica, hip hop, classical, blues and jazz. This up and coming DJ began performing music while still in his early teens. Only having recently begun to perfect his skills behind the decks, Levi Clark has already shared the stage with headliners such as Superstar Keoki, John B & the Institubes crew. Today's focus is trained on electro oriented beats while also diving into breaks and techno. Levi Clark is passionate for all music that is "dirty" and makes people want to dance.

Danger comes from Seattle's old school electronic music scene. Over the past year she has revitalized the underground by throwing her notorious Spy monthlies and DJing throughout the local club scene.

Growing up outside St. Louis and NYC, Menami was exposed to many different types of music and developed a strong love for music and dancing at a young age. She eventually wound up in Seattle and later stumbled across Shameless crew late 2004, later becoming the requisite Jill-of-all-trades for the group. She enjoys and collects techno, electro, bass music, tech-house, ghetto tech, dirty club and party music as well as dreamy, domestic downtempo.

M'Chateau is a local destroyerator with an epitome of excellency, a city's icon to say the least. As member of the FourthCity collective, he has been a leading force in the local Micro-Rave movement, spearheading parties like the infamous now disintegrated Triple Decker Pioneer Square loft series. Going on 4 years behind the decks, M'Chateau's choice in style is stirred with allegiance for Detroit and Germany and unconditional love for Latin and Brazillian music. His sets will please even the most jaded electro-naut.

Resident DJ of Clup Pop with Colby B, Glitterpants is fast becoming a local favorite. Often playing at Pop Rocks down at Viceroy and various other one offs, we welcome him to a Shameless party for the second time.

[Naha Army]
As Naha's protege with over 10 years of DJ experiencee, Schlage is no stranger to the dirty beats. With ease he can spans genres of drum & bass, breaks, dubstep, electro and all things skanky.
PACKY - DJ [Innerflight]
Currently hailing out of Portland, Packy brings an infectious love for music to each of his DJ sets. His technical skill behind the decks are often flawless so he brings the dirty, techy side of house music with ease.
MC ANTON BOMB - HOST [Shameless]
As an MC or gracious host, this year Anton Bomb wears multiple hats. He's always remained first and foremost a crowd motivator.


One of the most sought after VJs in the city. He won the first Optic Clash VJ competition and continues to unite the small but growing local VJ scene through various events including Broken Disco.
