JASON KENDIG:
Inspired by the electronic music emanating from Detroit's airwaves while coming of age, Jason Kendig has been pursuing the dance music pulse for over two decades. From his first residency at Detroit's Motor Lounge in the late 90s to his current role as an integral member of the esteemed Honey Soundsystem–a queer collective of musicians, artists and djs known for elevating nightlife in San Francisco and beyond–Jason never fails to make others move through his ability to reference dance music's past yet keeping an ear to the future.

"Kendig's own mixes have a deep, wintry atmosphere, sparkling with subtle details, ambient risks, and the refinement that comes from years of just listening to techno. He also has the ability to reinvest campy disco or house classics with the fervent emotions that informed them in the first place, bringing on the shivers with, say, a familiar acid-derived cymbal hit.” – Marke Bieschke / XLR8R

"Kendig is the kind of DJ who makes the technicalities of mixing vinyl seem effortless. He picks his tracks quickly, he holds his blends for a long time, and he has this ability to ratchet up the intensity of his playing in a way that's very different from other local DJs…” – Derek Oppermen / SF Weekly

About:  Bristol-based house connoisseur Andy Compton has released over 31 albums and over 135 EPs (either under his own name or as part of his legendary group The Rurals, COMPTON or L.A.M.P) on his essential Peng label and imprints like Ralf GUM’s GOGO Music, Chicago’s LARGE Music, Seasons, Viva, Hed Kandi and many others.

Output from Peng and The Rurals has been the focus of four South Africa-specific collections on Sony's House Afrika: 2002’s ‘Sunday Sessions 1’, 2005’s ‘Sunday Sessions 2’, 2010’s 4-CD set ‘House Afrika Grooves’. 2011’s ‘Kholofelo Remixed’, features a lustrous lineup of top-notch remixes of his material, no less than eight of which come from South African producers. And, the “Experience Peng” triple pack CD is now available on Universal. Also, watch out for his newest solo album "Ubuntu" which has hit the streets.

South Africa has embraced Andy's deep house sounds, and because of his popularity over there, and albums released via EMI, SONY, WEA, and now Universal, he has done 20 South African tours in the past 5 years.

Since discovering house music in the early ‘90s Compton has released a dazzling array of music and worked with an army of artists (from Motown legends to budding underground names like Detroit's Pirahnahead). He’s been featured on the cover of the seminal DJ Magazine and had his music used in TV show Six Feet Under, while tunes like “Sweeter Sounds” have become bona fide anthems at spots like NY’s Shelter. He has worked with top class vocalists Celestine, Marie Tweek, Diviniti, Kafele, Rowan, Ladybird, Sabrina Chyld and many others!

Compton's Dj skills have turned heads and twisted bodies worldwide, with his thumping brew of electronic beats swathed in coolly-crafted melodies, with Peng becoming one of the premiere labels on the planet, garnering support from house big-hitters like Louie Vega, Larry Heard, Mark Farina and Osunlade (to name a few).

All this has solidified Compton’s reputation as one of the most respected house music players on the planet.

Sappho is fresh from playing at almost every Pride event on the West Coast (Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, and LA this year) as well as Boston's Together festival and is no stranger to consistently helping Portland or Seattle get down at one of her monthly events, (she has a few).

ryan crosson

Ryan Crosson makes house and techno inspired by the historical precedent set in his native city of Detroit and his adopted hometown of Berlin. His musical output is shaped by pioneering artists like Richie Hawtin, Kevin Saunderson and Moodymann in the US, in addition to European heavyweights like Pantytec, Ricardo Villalobos, and Thomas Brinkmann. Situated loosely between these two defining poles, alongside his partners in Visionquest: Shaun Reeves, Seth Troxler and Lee Curtiss, Ryan delivers a obsessive attention to the constant progression of his sound and embodies a ceaseless energy that carries itself from the studio directly into his live set and DJ performances. Whether it’s solo in the studio or as a guiding hand in the Visionquest label and DJ/production partnership, Ryan consistently chooses to steer away from the predictable circuit of so-called “underground” club hits, instead favouring a process of constant renewal, returning both to early influential material and to emerging sounds that depart from well-trodden trends. As a key member of Visionquest, Ryan is responsible for much of the concepting and day to day running of what has rapidly become one of dance music’s most cherished new labels. Between them, Ryan and his partners in Visionquest have honed a whole new landscape of lush, organic techno and more esoteric leftfield electronica, gambling against the predicable to introduce emerging talent like Tale Of Us, Maceo Plex, Footprinz, Laura Jones and Mathew Burton to the record buying public. Their efforts were rewarded when their label was voted number seven in Resident Advisor’s 2011 label poll, no mean feat given that it’s back catalogue has only recently hit double digits.

In the studio, Ryan’s production and sampling practices depart from the world of electronic music by accessing histories of sound, referencing musique concrete, 1970's funk, and East African jazz. This is best demonstrated by the evolution of his sound from minimal hits like ‘Gotham Road’ and ‘Hopskotch’, through to the organic underground house strains of his ‘Visionquest’ remixes of Kiki’s ‘Good Voodoo’ and more recently via his Visionquest remixes of David Lynch’s ‘Pinky’s Dream’ and Guy Gerber and P Diddy’s forthcoming ‘Eleven Eleven’ project. In addition to dancefloor bombs like ‘You’ve Got Me’ EP on Supplement Facts he’s also capable of conjuring up the haunting cosmic beauty of his recent ‘Birds & Souls’ project on Spectral Sound alongside the genre-busting sonic experiments that make up his recent DRM album collaboration with Cesar Merveille released at the start of the year on Visionquest. 

In the past Ryan has released tracks on diverse and groundbreaking labels like m-nus, Telegraph, Trapez, and Wagon Repair and more recently Soma, Spectral Sound and Supplemental Facts. From the outset Ryan immediately gave himself over to a life of touring and performance that keeps a steady focus on both the avant-garde aesthetics and deeply emotional bonds of dance music subculture. Ryan’s back-to-back live sets with Lee Curtiss, at the sold out Visionquest showcase at fabric last year and at Movement in Detroit, stole both these shows boding well for 2012 which will see him repeat his live show at some of the world’s most famous clubs and festivals alongside a packed schedule of DJ gigs, both solo and as part of Visionquest, including his much anticipated new residency at Circo Loco at DC10 this summer.

Green Velvet at Metro Music Hall with Nate Lowpass & Jesse Walker

LNE & Nightfreq Present

GREEN VELVET
with support by Latmun, Nate Lowpass & Jesse Walker

TICKETS >

About Green Velvet:  For an international audience reawakening to the influence of Chicago house during the 1990s, Curtis A. Jones acted as quite a renaissance leader. Besides donning his straight ahead house guise Cajmere and a flamboyant, neon-haired acid-house alter-ego named Green Velvet for several of the most memorable underground house tracks of the decade (including "Preacher Man," "Answering Machine" "Brighter Days" and "Flash"), Jones helmed the two most respected labels in the new school of Chicago house, Cajual and Relief. Though artist-owned labels had become the norm in Detroit, Chicago occurrences were frustratingly rare, despite the fact that the two major house imprints of the 1980s, Trax and DJ International, had continually bilked their artists out of money. Cajmere went a long way towards rectifying that situation, releasing records by a diverse cast of producers old and new: DJ Sneak, Glenn Underground, Paul Johnson, Gemini, Tim Harper and Boo Williams, among others.

The Chicago native began clubbing and buying records while studying at the University of Illinois. He later graduated with a degree in chemical engineering (and even attended several years of grad school at UC-Berkeley), but then returned to his hometown in 1991 with a drive to begin recording and DJing around the area. His first track "Coffee Pot (It's Time for the Percolator)" was released in 1992 as Cajmere on Clubhouse Records. That same year, Cajmere worked on production for "Get With U" by Lidell Townsell, then hooked up with another Chicago vocalist, Dajae. After the pair recorded a breakout single named "Brighter Days," Cajmere decided to form his own Cajual Records to release it. "Brighter Days" ascended to the number two position on the dance charts and became an international smash; it was the perfect remedy to Chicago's quickly deteriorating fortunes, a track which looked back to the '80s boom years but updated the sound with heavier beats, low-end synth and up-to-date programming. 

Subsequent Dajae/Cajual collaborations like "U Got Me Up" and "Day by Day" followed, and Cajmere eventually set up his Relief label in 1994. After deciding that the house scene needed a bit more showmanship, he created the alias Green Velvet for live gigs and DJ events. A kind of digital-age Bootsy Collins with impeccable fashion sense, Green Velvet hit the club charts with a trio of anthems from 1995 to 1997: "Flash," "The Stalker" and "Answering Machine." While no full-length appeared from either Cajmere or Green Velvet during those years, Cajual/Relief compilations like The Many Shades of Cajual, A Taste of Cajual and Relief: The Future Sound of Chicago collected all of his best productions.

Over the past two years we have fought for your right to express yourself, for your right to have a space in this city free from the creative confines of traditional for-profit nightclubs, and for artists to create and share their unmediated artform with the public. This anniversary is yours. This venue is yours. We built this all for you, will you dance with us?

Join us, Friday, September 9th as we celebrate the artists and audience that make this space what it is today. Dozens of locals artists and performers come together for one night to pay homage to a city of glass ceilings forever broken by the strength of our members. Your dancefloorhas always been contested. On this night, we celebrate two years of fighting for you and your politicial, sexual and artistic expression. 

Techno in two rooms by some of Vancouver's finest, the premier of new art installations by local artists, drag artists, the return of the infamous lust lounge, live photobooths, and a sneak peak into VAL's new Vinyl Library, western Canada's first non-profit privately-funded music library. 

We invite you to participate in an open and safe space that is female-friendly and queer-friendly. No discimination or uninvited touching will be tolerated. 

Help make this anniversary one for the record books and share this event. Thank you for supporting VAL to make it this far. This event is for you.

Have fun and stay safe
