Gosh! We just can't wait to see you all! The fishing was good but being together again is great.
Dust off your dancing shoes and get ready to shake it!


**BROKEN DISCO 2.0**..
January 16th @ Chop Suey - SEATTLE, WA

After taking a break to go fishing, Broken Disco is back in the saddle again. To help start the New Year off right, Broken Disco is coming back to 3rd Fridays and the first show is January 16th at Chop Suey (Seattle, WA), featuring performances from international producers THE MARTIN BROTHERS (US) and FRIVOLOUS (DE) with outstanding DJ sets by talented Pacific Northwest locals CLAUDE BALZAC, NOISEMAKER, JISAAN + the LOVEVIRUS, and INTROCUT.


The Martin Brothers San Francisco

2x4 DJ Set / dirtybird, Utensil, Buzzin' Fly Records

www. myspace. com/birdydird

Justin Martin is one of the few house DJs that successfully bridges the gap between being commercially successful and staying true to the underground. His sound has been described as both melodic and tough, with releases ranging from the dynamic "Cicada" on dirtybird to the slamming "Magnificent" remix for Iz and Diz on OM records. Justin first gained international acclaim for his single, "The Sad Piano," on Ben Watt's Buzzin' Fly label. The single made its way into many A-List DJ crates as well as receiving many accolades from critics. Over time, Justin developed a more edgy sound in his hometown of San Francisco. He helped develop the local dirtybird label with his good friend, Claude VonStroke, releasing several amazing singles and remixes.

Christian Martin's love affair with electronic music began in 1995, as an early attendee at Southern California's now legendary Moontribe full moon desert parties. After absorbing late 90's club life in New York, London, and Los Angeles, Christian settled in San Francisco in the spring of 2000. He started playing records in 2002 under the tutelage of his brother, Justin Martin, armed with a stack of Justin's old vinyl and used Technics 1200's from Sammy D. In 2003, inspired by the massive desert soundsystems of old, Christian founded the dirtybird soundsystem. Along with co-founders Justin Martin, Worthy, and Claude VonStroke, dirtybird's Sunday afternoon BBQ's have quickly become a Golden Gate Park institution.

Frivolous Berlin, Germany

LIVE! Scape / Poptronix / Karlof
www. frivolouslive. com

In 1996, won over by unified dance floors and the Detroit sound, the 16 year old Frivolous engages in a long term love affair with the loop and takes his first weekly residency at a downtown Vancouver after hours. After two successfully directionless years in electronics and then design, and after dabbling with some white label releases, Daniel decides to put his pride aside and send out a demo. A CD of incomplete works were sent out as an experiment to 5 of the most technologically innovative 12" labels in Germany and received back were 3 requests to release the material. Today, after a long evolution in his sound, Daniel's recording alter-ego Frivolous captures a romantically influenced montage of the most cutting edge production techniques with an old soul mentality. Along side his extremely bizarre performances, is the incorporation of classic instruments, home-made inventions and vocals into an environment built on experiments with glitchy cut-up funk, musique actuelle, and found sound.

Introcut Seattle

DJ Set - Fourthcity / Trashy Trash
www. myspace. com/introcut

Introcut is a member of the Fourthcity Crew (Seattle) and has been playing records for over a decade. He spins many different styles of music from hip-hop, downtempo, glitch, electronic, brokenbeat, house, techno, and dub to electro, 80s, space funk, punk, metal jazz, etc, as well as being a self-proclaimed super nerdy record collector that is also known for scratching Technics. Introcut has held a resident DJ slot at the Lo-Fi Performance Gallery's Tuesday night, "Stop Biting" for the last 4 years and includes other Fourthcity members and talented locals. Introcut is also a resident DJ at Trashy Trash, a drunken monthly dance party at the Sunset Tavern. Introcut is one of the founding members of the Broken Disco parties and spends a lot of time hanging up concert posters for his local poster distribution company, PosterMidget. DJ Introcut is also featured scratching on the first track of the latest Truckasauras album, "Tea Parties, Guns, and Valor" and the Galactic Ionization Unit, which includes members of Foscil, BOB22 & Truckasauras.

Claude Balzac Seattle

DJ Set - Trashy Trash
www. myspace. com/friquemusique

Claude Balzac is the crazy French alter-ego of Seattle based DJ/Producer Ben Meadow (aka Nominal I). Balzac's first performance was in April 2007 doing a live set at the Fourthcity crew's Laptop Battle: Teen Idol Survivor. Since then he has been setting dance floors ablaze all around the Northwest. Balzac's style is rooted in electro and electro house but he frequently incorporates music from a variety of genres into his sets. He will do what it takes to make the party hot. Right now he is working on a series of Baltimore Club remixes. You can also check him out and download a mix from his blog. Frique Musique is Claude Balzac's full frontal assault on the world of electronic dance music.

Noisemaker Seattle

DJ Set - Beatcon
www. myspace. com/206noisemaker

NoiseMaker ignites crowds like the anti-fireman of the sound revolution, a peaceful warrior and artist who sets to flames all who hear his unique and expressive style. His weapon is a smart-bomb of beats, an imaginative interpretation of music which is virtually an orgy of genres from glitch to hip-hop to dub step to 80's pop hits to drum and bass to thug rap from the eastern suburbs of Paris. Unafraid to take risks, he chops up everything from Rage Against the Machine to Justin Timberlake with no apologies and with much love from his audience. You better hold on tight kids, this is the red pill. Besides being involved with the Seattle Underground DJ collective, the monthly dance mania and brain-killer Spy Party, and LiveNLove Productions, he has also performed alongside such talents as Glitch Mob, BreakBeatBuddha, VibeSquad, SoulEye, Novatron, and many others.The future of art is happening right now, and it sounds like NoiseMaker. This revolution will not be televised.
